Normally there shouldn’t be a problem with 2.1.1. Could you give an example? You could try to delete (backup first) the additional files that are created when you open Mellel the first time. If you delete them, Mellel does behave like it was installed freshly on your machine. This could sometimes so...

The window at the top only displays the names of the Style Variations you’ve entered within the Mellel › Perferences › Styles options. To make style variations work, you have to set up them for each Character Style (inside the Edit “Character Style” window which could be reached via the [/color]Char...

Perhaps I'm not understanding what you're asking for. While the article was written with a web developers slant, everything about the usage of such characters (including the multitude of spaces) still applies for ordinary word processing. Yes, but the article makes a big point that text editors/wor...

This does’t work in Mellel currently because Mellel uses its own text engine. Software that uses the Mac OS X Cocoa text engine (Pages, TextEdit, Mail) support this feature.
Maybe a future version of Mellel (Cross-references, for example, are promised for this year) would support those links.

One could also manually correct them, of course, but then this is getting to too much manual work, right? In my view, not to be able to automatically get TOC section titles in a single paragraph per chapter, as an option, is a blow to an otherwise very flexible and thorough auto-titles design. So, ...

It is possible, but actually not in a one step operation. You could set up a Auto-Title setup that produces a ToC like this: 1. This is a chapter autotitle------------------------------------------------------------------2 This one section auto-title (3) ¶ This is another section auto-title (13) ¶ A...

Just in case you care: The “Times” font shipped with OS X is a TrueType font and Mellel currently does not kern TrueType fonts (try the word “VILTAVA” with a high zoom level for example). Therefore it might be a better idea to use the Times as a fallback solution only. That’s true and I even checke...

Re: font substitution

What special characters are you actually talking about? Surely it is not "?". Someone might have a suggestion about how to get a Times New Roman that has it for free. No, it is not "?". But the one I use apparently can't be displayed by the forum's text engine. It is the an "L" with a "strikethroug...

You also could download the free application Monolingual to delete all unnecessary languages in one rush. This can free up some hundret MB on your harddisk. Monolingual also could delete one of the two binaries of an application (universal binary applications as Mellel contain one app for PPC Macs a...

A preferences option for "pretty printing" xml is something we plan for the future... Great news. I’ve also switched to Smultron some time ago and (even it may be the fault of Smultron) it could not be used with Mellel XML files. I’ve tried a smaller (one page) Mellel file and while it opened after...
