Re: Citation with author named within the paper

It's straightforward if your format doesn't require you to have the year in parentheses - in this case you could use the * symbol to specify No Enclosing Punctuation. So depending on how you have set up your citation options in Formats Manager you should have: "Lukina et. al 1999 showed that..."

Thoughts about Replace Styles

I've been finding the Replace Styles feature a little bit difficult to use - I wonder if anyone else has the same experience? Specifically, I used this feature recently to globally change the fonts I am using throughout my document. For the most part, this worked smoothly, but the old fonts still sh...

Re: Anyone else using Bookends and care to comment?

Thanks for the input, ealvarez and Icelander! To respond: ealvarez: I have opened a support ticket and am waiting on a reply from the good folks at RedleX. I thought it would be useful to know whether these problems are specific to me, or if others are also experiencing issues. Icelander: Thank you ...

Anyone else using Bookends and care to comment?

I have a quite long and complex document, which I've been working on in Mellel + Bookends for some time now. Recently, I've been experiencing intermittent problems with the formatting instructions sent from Bookends not being followed when the citation is copied over into Mellel, e.g. where a book t...

Re: Problem with iCloud Drive sync with Mellel for iPad

I finally figured out what was causing this problem: I had two directories that I was using for Mellel, one created by the app itself called "Mellel" and another I created in iCloud Drive called "Writing". Selecting my document by navigating to "Writing" in iCloud Drive on the iPad produced an error...

Understanding "Synchronize Database"

I have a Mellel project which is linked to a Bookends bibliography. After doing some work on cleaning up my references, I tried out the "Synchronize Database" command, and saw that it restored many of the old versions of my references to my Bookends database (which I was able to remove easily, as th...

Re: How to resume the counting of Level 1 heading?

Have you tried doing this with Title Flows in the Auto-Title area? One Title Flow to contain the two parts of the document, and a second title flow below that with numbered sections and the "Reset numbering with higher level flow" box checked.

Re: ProWritingAid support for Mellel

Just to give a bump to this thread: particularly if you have already subscribed to ProWritingAid, it would be great if you could drop their team an e-mail to let them know that you are a Mellel user and are keen to be able to revise your Mellel documents directly using the PWA Desktop App. Even if y...

Re: Feature request: Word count in outline

I quite like this idea too. As you may already know, it's possible to do this manually by selecting the text in each section and bringing up the Statistics palette, where the word count for the selected text is shown in parentheses after the word count for the whole document.

Re: How to reinstall

It should be easy enough to reinstall the application: 1) First, go to the website and enter your e-mail address to download the installer: https://www.mellel.com/download/ 2) Double-click on the mellel_40305.dmg file that you have just downloaded to open it 3) In the blue window that appears, click...

Re: Problem with iCloud Drive sync with Mellel for iPad

Just a quick update on this issue: the file opens just fine when transferred to Mellel via iTunes, so it looks like there is some kind of issue with opening it from iCloud Drive.

Re: ProWritingAid support for Mellel

I agree very much with Eyal that getting in touch directly with the people at ProWritingAid will let them know that there are users of Mellel out there who would like to use their service.

Contact information is available on the bottom right hand side of their website: https://prowritingaid.com/

Indeed, that's a possibility - I've updated to the latest version, iOS 11.2.2.

Re: Problem with iCloud Drive sync with Mellel for iPad

I figured this issue might come right by itself, so I gave it a few days. But nothing has changed, when I try to open my document on Mellel for iOS all I see is a blank page. On MacOS the document seems to be fine.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
