I have not used the feature yet Use it! Even if you do not need it. It's fantastic (and going better)! I use it everyday. For example, when I add or change something in a document I am discussing with others, I can mark the new or changed text, so that they can immediately jump there. It is like a ...

It can't possibly be true that I'm the only one disturbed by this, can it? Let's conduct an experiment: From my initial posting, copy the second, third and fourth paragraph (starting with 'Anyway, here's the deal', ending with 'noticeable and really disturbing'). Paste that into Mellel and delete t...

Can you do me a favor macsailor? Set Mellel's text zoom to 100% and create a paragraph that is about a page long. Then tell me whether you feel that it's getting sluggish when typing, especially compared to when you start a new paragraph right underneath. I tried what you asked me to do and I did n...

The same goes for me. I have not used the feature yet, so it's quite difficult to give a fair vote from my part of the Mellel World.

I've got a Pismo (G3/500, 576MB of memory, 80gig harddrive) and I'm using the latest version of MacOS X (10.4.9). I do not find specifically Mellel to be that slow on my PowerBook. I do feel that my Pismo is ready for a retirement any time now (it's nearly 8 years old by now), but I do not think tha...

Re: Thanks, but no such pathway in my version

MacSailor: OK. Thanks for the thought; as I said above I did find a Cr Standard Font in a different folder than stated by mr Martin. Hehe, I was to fast writing my text and to slow to read your text. Sorry. :oops: I did re-check your suggestion and found no such path in my version of Reader--there ...

Re: Adobe--fontless in Seattle . . .

Mel watchers: As per mr Martin's suggestion I tried to find the Adobe versions of Courier in my Reader version 7.05 that I use on regular basis. First I looked in the App Support folder that he listed above--and no go--no Fonts to be found. Then I "spotlighted" terms "adobe fonts" and got the ROMAN...

Mellel 2.3 requires at least Mac OS 10.3 and even the slowest Mac, that could run OS 10.3 (the 233 MHz iMac I guess) is fast enough to render formatted text properly (but maybe not really fast), so this shouldn’t be an issue, but as mentioned above, a independent view (i wouldn’t call it “plain” te...

Well one thing this Nisus thing is doing very well compared to Mellel is tables.... Much much quicker and you can use real navigation to go to different rows, etc. I have noticed that table-handling is getting extremely slow in Mellel (with big tables - say 8x20), but in Word or Nisus they work lik...

Re: cross-references: glad to wait for a quality implementat

Mellel addresses all my needs wonderfully--except for a lack of cross references. My impression is that cross-references are coming, and that they will be ready when they are ready, consistent with the quality of software delivered by this company. I can tell you that they are already in the works ...

I suppose the gist of this is: don't buy something for what you want it to do in the future, purchase it for what you can do with it right now. Agree. I certainly want both index, cross reference and text flow around images, but I will survive until Mellel has all these features (and hopefully surv...

My guess is that this happened by pressing delete while in the outline. This causes the selected section to be deleted and there is no "Are you sure?" dialog. I wonder if we could have a preference to turn on a confirmation dialogue for deletions from the outline. With undo in its current unfinishe...

If you have activated the auto backup, you would be able to recover your deleted text. Have a look at ~/Library/Application Support/Mellel/Backup
