Well unless the Redlers are liars, I would hedge my bets that it will arrive sometime in the next 46 days! :wink: I would not call them liars even if they missed a deadline or two. It's better to have really good implementation of new features within the already excellent Mellel, than to manage to ...

While surfing throught the web, I’ve found a page nice recently that offers two OpenType fonts with real Small Caps for free. One of the font is a sans serif one (Delicious), the other has small serifes (Fontin). Both contain several font faces as regular, italic, bold, small caps, one also contain...

Probably, look here http://forum.redlers.com/viewtopic.php?t=855. Now he's from Poland.

Isn't there a way to get rid of all these spammers.

You were from France in your previous post and the text below your name states you're from the USA. No one understands what it means to post a message to PM. He did the same at http://www.nisus.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=7713#7713 . :? Strange with people who do not know where they are from… :?

Nope, give it a try to send an e-mail to the Redlers. It might solve your problem.

I think my goal is to get away from LaTeX. Have a look at this screenshot from the Kile homepage . That's exactly how my thesis looks like, and when it's 20 pages long I'm already having headaches. I'm sure some people are able to handle reading with all those commands that clutter up the document....

Re: Minion Pro vs. Cardo

Ori Redler wrote: A. This "double capping" makes the font appear smaller. You'll have to compensate for that.
Would it be possible to make the Mellel to take care of the "compensation" automatically, instead of having to do it myself?

There is a very good description regarding this at page 111-112 in the Mellel Guide. There you will also see figured examples. Using “fake” small caps There are some cases where you’ll have to use small caps with OpenType fonts that do not support this option or with a non OpenType font. Although th...

It would (also) be nice to already at the writing phase be able to select the text and choose the language that would go for this part of the text. When you later want to make a spell checker, the application (in this case Mellel) would automatically choose the appropriate dictionary. If I'm not mis...

I'm not sure I really follow you. When I select a part of the text in Mellel and use cmd-I, the text will be italic and the same goes for cmd-B and bold . Have I missed something here? I regulary do not use cmd-I and cmd-B, since I usually use the predefined f-keys on my PowerBook. Edit: Now I can s...

For those of us that primarly work in text, Mellel is a superb program, and the best out there. I certainly agree on this one. Mellel is by far the best word processor I have used. Even if it's not the most easiest to learn to use, when you have learned to use it and all its features, it's nearly u...
