Finding broken references

How do I search to find all instances of where some reference has broken, as appears in text with # signs.

Re: Bibliography not generating

One possibility. Bookends has a preference setting for Word Processor (top left of Preferences window). If that's not set to Mellel, then might be the culprit. If you've previously been using Word, for example, then Bookends might be set for Word. You say that this is your first time. Do you mean to...

No sign of the problem for some months. I am still using the same operating system (Mojave).

Re: weird file open bug with version 4.2.9r1

This may be a red herring, but today I was unable to open old Mellel files by double-clicking or--with Mellel open--by using File/Open. Nothing else seemed odd. However, I restarted the computer and all was well. I am using Mojave 10.4.6.

Re: Order of items in Table of Contents

Regrettably, that's not the problem. I had the "List as separate section in TOC" enabled. This causes all figures in the main text to appear together (rather than intermingled with text sections), but all appendix figures appear together later. The problem, I believe, is that my auto-title set-up fo...

Order of items in Table of Contents

My table of contents is coming out in the order dictated, apparently, by my auto-title setup. The TOC generated automatically looks odd-- with the appendix figures and tables being listed at the end. Is there place to specify that, instead, all figures should come out together, and that all tables s...

Re: Accepting Changes Incrementally

Being able to accept changes in a selected passage would be very helpful. Re-reading and checking a marked-up passage can be very difficult because of the combination of strikeouts, additions, and difficult-to-see changes (e.g., deletion of spaces). Here is a work-around. It's probably been obvious ...

Re: ALLCAPS character attribute does not export to .rtf

I just checked with a new manuscript and export to .docx works really well if you -- export from Mellel to pdf -- uses the Adobe pdf to Word service, which--except for a trial period--requires a small yearly fee Examples: 1. Front matter is numbered correctly as i, ii, .... 2. Main text is numbered ...

Nice-to-Have Table Issues

Mellel's still-fairly-new table features are very nice and I have been using them intensively in a new manuscript. This includes styles, templates, alternating rows, and repeat header. I am trying to collect suggestions for tweaks as I go along. I'm sure others have ideas as well. My current list is...

Style of new rows or columns of table

Is there a trick to use so that, when adding rows or columns to a pre-existing table, they will come in styled in the same way as others?

Re: Feature request: split view

Yes, I have long hoped for this feature. I have no idea whether it's a little or small ask. I sometimes use a flawed workaround. Starting with File 3.20, I save-as to a new version File 3.20b. I edit that one, while having File 3.20 open so that I can have an approximate split-screen functionality. ...
