But seriously, no text wrap around of images? MacWrite 1.0 could practically do this! As far as I remember, MacWrite did not manage to do that. But I admit it was a very long time ago, so I can be wrong about that. :? Mellel will get this function in the time to come. Hopefully it will not take to ...

Right, and the Apple dictionary invariably contains both the U.S. and the English spelling... what bothers me is that Mellel, also invariably, highlights the U.S. variations as spelling mistakes. If you dig through the edit menu (Edit > Spelling > Spelling), the little window that comes up offers B...

Not possible yet. You'll have to wait for a future version. That's a joke? "The word processor for OS X" who have not so a simple function... and i have paid for it... CU Ghettomaster It's not a joke. But it will probably be implemented in a (hopefully near?) future version of the otherwise excelle...

I agree on this one. It's quite annoying to not be able to use the Undo feature as I'm use to while using other word processors (i.e. NWE).

Exactly what is the difference between PD and PDF-X (except the embedded font info as mentioned above)?

I agree with you, that sometimes (or maybe most times) it's quicker to use keyboard shortcuts than using palettes or menus.

If I have not totally forgotten, I used to use keyboard shortcuts a lot while using WordPerfect for Mac in the early 90s.

I’d like to be able to do it without leaving the keyboard, which means no palettes and no menus (or palettes and menus BUT with a good keyboard shortcut right out of the box). Let's be generous. Why not let the users choose between several options (keyboard, menus and palettes) and use whatever is ...

Maybe this could be done by selecting the word that you would like to hyphenate and apply the action with the help of a »learning soft hyphen« palette at the right side of the screen.

Or maybe this could be done by using a new contextual menu directly within the text in the document?

Not AFAIK, but it might be a hidden feature :wink:

The file available for download seems to have the same version number as the beta. That's why I thought it was released to the public. Sorry :oops:

I'm using a Pismo PowerBook and I can find whatever I'm looking for in both the old and the new Mellel format with the help of the new SpotlightPlugin . At first the new plugin did not install itself properly, but with the help of the Redlers we found out that the culprit was the old plugin that was...
