Re: Just for fun, what is your longest Mellel document...

40 000 words with index, bibliography and a lot of crossed references. No problem at all. Very responsive.

Re: how to remove auto-title attribute?

The only way I see is to use File/Replace Style. Could be tricky though as it will replace all texts with the auto-title attribute.

Re: Manuscript for publication: doc, PDF and InDesign?

I sent paper copies : ) ...They really asked for it!

Should I be accepted, I hope that there will be a workaround for the editor to import from a pdf format to Adobe inDesign (there should be!). I have indeed the same issues than you with the "export to .doc".

Re: Feature request: Antidote integration

A pity that I have to consider sending my book in Word to use Antidote. And as said, this software is very good in English too and able to recognize English parts in a French text. For me, that’s the number 1 feature lacking in Mellel.

Re: Finalizing a document - how to deal with citations?

Not sure it helps, but you can individually exclude some citations from the final document. Just double-click on the citation and select "exclude". The citation will be displayed in the bibliography, but not in the final document. This way, you can place the citation at the end of the paragraph and ...

Re: Auto Title maintains paragraph attributes after Return

I did some tests and all I can see is to press the space bar (once) before Return. If you are “glued” to the auto-title before pressing Return, it will keep the formatting.

Re: How Mellel has failed me

Currently, Mellel is uninstalled from my machine. Nisus Writer Pro takes its position. I encourage you to test it though.

Re: Merge several documents in one

Haven't seen anything like that. Mellel doesn't work on the model "master-slaves documents".

Re: Image placement

(note: working with the French localization, not sure of the exact translations)

Have you tried to right-click “Modify image” then select “Incorporated” or “Floating” (at the bottom of the window)? Also, the last option to create “a return to the line” might do the trick.
