Re: A call for tables

1. Ability to work with something akin to 'table styles' It would also be nice if one could draw a table (like in Nisus and Word). A small window should then appear where on can choose a background color for the first column and the top row, similar to what is now possible in Pages and Nisus Writer...

Re: A call for tables

2. I find the definition of keyboard shortcuts annoying: in order to insert a tab into the text I have to press alt-tab because the tab key jumps to the next table cell. I think this is a long-standing, international accepted convention or norm. I can't remember any Mac application where this is NO...

Re: footnote format request and another

How can you do that? I did it with Text Boxes in Nisus Writer Pro. The numbers are updated automatically, and you can bookmark and cross-reference the numbers. In MS Word one can use frames ( "Positionsrahmen" in German), but it requires some preparatory work. The sad thing is, you can't do this ea...

Re: footnote format request and another

I haven't found any wordprocessor which can do this so far.
Take a look at this. Isn't this exactly what you want to do? It wasn't difficult to do it.

Re: Intermin solutions for working with .mellel docs in ProWritingAid

I'm not certain about the limitations of the free service, but it may well be that you are limited to checking 500 words at a time. Yes, it's only 500 words. You can paste in more, but everything after the first 500 words will be ignored. This is a bit tricky, because if one is not aware of this, o...

Re: Intermin solutions for working with .mellel docs in ProWritingAid

I can't answer your question, Joseph, but I tested the free option today. My first impression is that the program concentrates too much, perhaps exclusively, on individual words instead of words in context. Therefore most of the suggestions were wrong. Passive voice is always flagged. The sentence: ...

Re: Intermin solutions for working with .mellel docs in ProWritingAid

I have a large Mellel document (80,000+ words) that I hope to check with ProWritingAid before finalizing it. This requires a $50 yearly subscription fee. ProWritingAid Free edits only 500 words at a time and is online only. It's also limited to 19 Writing Reports, which I'm not sure what means. Doe...

Re: footnote format request and another

My another request is for Randnummer, which is widely used in German legal literature. That is different from paragraph numbers. Do these numbers always have to be on the right margin, like here on the picture? https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Randnummer Are you trying to achieve something like this? ...

Feature request: Highlight the Auto-title in a document when selecting it in the Outline

If you click on an Auto-title in the *Outline*, you will be taken to a part in the document where that Auto-title is. However, contrary to what Nisus Writer Pro does, the Auto-title in Mellel is NOT highlighted (or flashed for an instant). This makes it often hard to quickly spot the exact location,...

Re: List formatting not working

If I try to change the appearance of the list using the attribute pane in the palette… If you are talking about the attributes pane in the list's palette, then clicking on the frame next to the encircled T reveals a sort of a drop-down pane. Changing settings in that pane will only affect the list ...

Re: Print and/or export structure with notes?

Is there any way to export the structure along with the notes? I wholeheartedly support this very important feature request. Being able to export and print the remarks would be a big boon for all Mellel users. This should definitely be implemented. Right now, I can't think of anything else than to ...

Re: footnotes from doc in 4.1.1

I have just installed the update 4.1.1 and then imported a file in .doc. All footnotes were lost as notes and appeared after the text without links.
Same here. [v4.1]

Re: Importing to Mellel. docx etc.

First, I assume by "suprascript"you mean superscript. Second, superscript characters, both digits and letters, are now converted correctly from .docx to Mellel 4. Third, you are right when you say that Small Caps are not displayed correctly after import from .docx. Any suggestions? If possible, try ...
