Re: 3.0 Wish List

Backtracking a bit: are there any substantiated reasons to believe that a version 3.0 will ever exist? Fearmongering, macula? :wink: By now we know that updates to Mellel take longer than we would like (they did so since at least version 2.7.x, probably even earlier). BUT the updates will appear ev...

Re: Selecting all footnotes (a variant)

If possible, I usually change the styling in the original RTF, so that for example footnotes have a tab at 1.0 – some kind of feature that I can then easily detect in the replace styles window and that is unique to the paragraph that I want to change.

Re: Equations inserted as pdfs acting weirdly

Sounds very much like a bug – I guess I would send a report to the Redlers and include a sample document with a sample PDF and some instructions on how to reproduce the problem.

Re: PDF export produces auto-title citation links

It would be nice if bibliography citations worked too... But that seems like it would be tougher to implement, since it would require more communication between the bibliography software and Mellel. What a wonderful idea! But: I think this will be difficult in many cases when you cite a text more t...

Re: Imbedded PDFs don't print properly

I guess you should contact the Redlers directly via their support e-mail, as this sounds like a bug that needs some more info for proper troubleshooting (best would be to include a sample file in your report).

I guess the font is called David, i.e. it is a Hebrew font?

Re: Mellel video tutorial

Eyal, I just saw the video tutorial for Mentions and ToCs http://www.redlers.com/supporttutorialm ... ndtoc.html, the resolution however is really, really tiny. Is that video also available in higher resolution?

Thanks!

Good idea – and hopefully easy to add, so I definitely second this. :)

Re: Choppy deletion

I didn’t have much time for testing, but I just saw that I have the same messages in console. As soon as I find the time, I’ll also try and check if this affects performance here too. (MacBook Pro 2,2 with 3GB RAM, OS 10.7.1)

Re: Choppy deletion

Could this be related to fonts? You might want to clear your font caches and try a different font (say, Helvetica, as a standard and reliable testing font).

Select the following in the menu bar: Insert > Auto-Title > Edit title flows… Then select your subsection auto-title, click on the object for which you want to change the font size and assign the appropriate style to the objects.

Re: Mellel video tutorial

Yes, indeed - great initiative. (And it is neat to finally hear the voice of one of the creators of Mellel.) :) A bit of feedback: * Maybe you could reduce the resolution of the monitor you use for recording the screencast (or you only record parts of the screen). If you then keep the video at the s...
