Importing to Mellel. docx etc.

There is a problem that has been souring my life with Mellel for many years. I had hoped that the new direct import of docx would solve it, but no. The problem is the import of small caps and suprascript numbers. Small caps are rendered as normal letters and suprascript numbers as ordinary figures r...

Re: Export Outline to PDF

The subject has already been discussed, and as far as I remember the answer is no, but if you make a ToC it will be active in your pdf provided you have written your document in Mellel 4, not earlier.

Re: Pages files, how to open with/transfer to Mellel?

You seem to have found a real problem. I opened a file that I had received in Pages, with b****** endnotes, exported it in rtf and imported it into Mellel. Note-llnks were broken, but otherwise it worked well. I then tried to transform the endnotes into footnotes in Pages (appears to be possible in ...

Search function not working

Mellel 4.0.3b6 OS 10.12.6 I wanted to find a place in a longish file, but did not get any result although the parameters were correct. In fact, I discover that the search function just does not work at all. On another computer running the same version of Mellel but on OS 10.13.3 it works perfectly. ...

Re: export outline / auto-titles to Microsoft Word document

I have just tried to export, via RTF, to LibreOffice (a clone, I don't have Word) and to Nisus Writer Pro and you are right, no outline is shown. But does this brilliant feature exist in Word? Or is Auto-Titles one of several reasons why we use Mellel and not something else? - I have just tried with...

Re: Figure captions

As for me, I am not on the point of abandoning Mellel, but I am afraid you are right. At least I have never found how to do it.
It would be a very nice feature and I often need it.

Re: unable to open mellel files

In my experience, opening older files in Mellel 4 works without any problem. At some point one of my Macs was still on Mellel 3.5, and if I went the other way, opening new files with an older version, I was warned, correctly, that some features from Mellel 4 might not work. Apart from that, no probl...

Re: Drag & drop headings from the outline?

If I understand your problem correctly, it is about promoting or demoting auto titles in outline-mode. This is very easily done with the double arrows << and >> at the bottom of he column. I cannot, however, make it work by the suggested shortcuts (⌘→ and ⌘←).

Re: How to make an automatic word index?

I followed your procedure and indexed a very short Greek text. Your are right, it is extraordinary what this function will do. I especially liked the possibility to index words under another form than the one written - so necessary with Greek where οἴσω must be indexed under φέρω and so forth. But d...

Re: How to make an automatic word index?

It seems a fairly obvious and modest demand, but I do not see that Mellel 4 will do it. Even if you go through the lengthy process of marking up 1000 words, the index will apparently refer to pages only, not lines, and will not tell if a word occurs several times on the same page. I'm afraid you wil...

Re: Launch to default new document

I think it has been asked before, but there was no reply.
And yes, it would be nice to be able to launch directly on your favourite kind of page and be spared two unnecessary stages.

I cannot reproduce this error. Mellel 4 seems to save at the first attempt.

Re: help with small problems

Yes, thank you. I completely ignored the right (ctrl) click option. Then I only have to remove the underline.
As for the Find&Replace of 'return' I was looking in the wrong place. Thank you very much.

help with small problems

I have just finished a manuscript submitted for web-publication - something I often do and I always use Mellel > pdf. Most of what I get is of course in docx nowadays, and I had hoped that Mellel 4 would permit direct import, but no, I still have to pass through Nisus or Open Office or the like to t...
