Re: Crash report

I guess we need some more information to help you troubleshoot this: Which version of Mellel are you using and which version of the Mac OS?

Re: Fonts in Table of Contents

Ah, yes, the clicking, checking etc. of all the individual components of auto-titles can become quite tedious and it is often a source of difficult to track errors. But on the other hand, it is very powerful indeed…

Re: Fonts in Table of Contents

could you maybe supply a screen shot of the problematic TOC? (And maybe of the auto-title setting for the TOC that you use?) That would make troubleshooting a bit easier. To make a screenshot hit command+shift+4 and then either pull a rectangle around the area that you want to shoot or hit the space...

Re: Mellel and Lion

Does the lack of certainty of Mellel's previous compatibility mean that you did not encounter it in your testing, or that you gathered the information from reports and you are not personally testing Mellel against the developer builds of Lion? The reason I ask is because people who updated early to...

Re: Mellel and Lion

Yes, good news. :) It would be really excellent if Mellel could support auto-save and versioning soonish. I guess using the proper full-screen API for Lion would be nice to have, too, but versioning would be even better. (I am not saying that these features are more important than indexing or any ot...

Re: Mellel and Lion

I agree. It would be great if Eyal or Ori could offer us a short comment if they plan to release an update to Mellel in July that will either (a) only assure that Mellel continues running as it does right now, or (b) even tell us which new features (auto save & versioning, full screen support etc.) ...

Re: Disappearing style set

This is definitely a bug - it would probably be a good idea to e-mail this report to the Redlers, so that they can enter it into their bug database and hopefully address it in a future update. Thanks for reporting this on the forum, as this will teach me to avoid special characters like the German ß...

Re: Autofill Fields

It should be fairly easy to implement though, so I would recommend to send a feature request to the Redlers.

Re: File size

I have a mellel file of about 100 pages and its size is 102 KB. I have inserted a JPG image of 324KB. The file new size now is 299 KB. It could be that the .jpg file includes a preview picture or other meta information that is discarded by Mellel. The image information itself should remain untouche...

I was also thinking of Markers in the use scenario that you gave us, Etienne. But of course that doesn’t mean that there isn’t room for improvement… ;)

Oh, how nice! I didn’t know this is possible in Preview too. (So far I have always fired up Adobe Acrobat Pro to do that.)

Re: Wrong font in inserted auto-title

Have you verified that your Auto-Titles are set up to use the character styles you created? You need to create your character and paragraph styles for your Auto-Titles first, then set up your Auto-Titles to use those styles you newly created. And the part of the Auto-Titles formatting dialog that i...

Re: Free updates for life?

The lifetime free upgrades also made me think of GraphicConverter which had a similar policy, but had to scrap it with version 5 (I think, but it might also have been version 6). Many people then thought that GraphicConverter has supplied them with free upgrades – not only minor updates – for such a...

Re: The state of the Mellel (a road map of sorts)

My wish would be that all the large projects are put to one side for a month or two in favour of a bit of consolidation, making small additions and adjustments to what is already there so that it is more useful and usable. Agreed, I would also really like that. Adding a few smaller features here an...
