Re: Table-Cell Formatting

I have just, today, imported a table with lots of figures using rtf. Some of the figures were red and passed into Mellel as red. No problem. But it was the figures, not the cells, that were red.

Re: Spell Check problems

Your problem sounds only too familiar. Try searching threads like spelling, spell check and the like, and you will find tons of correspondence and complaints about the complication of this in Mellel. Eyal once wrote a good explanation, and if you follow it exactly, it works. But it is complicated. I...

Re: Mellel on ipad

Your problem 2: Fonts that are in parentheses in the list are old ones, no longer supported. If you try to write in such a font, or import a file where it has been used, it will be replaced. I have several like that, e.g. the old system-font New York. I think it has something to do with Unicode-comp...

Re: Style set of a document has been lost

You are right, of course. One cannot save a style like that, and the procedure I suggested does not work. Perhaps it is an error in the program. I have been the only one to try and help, but now I do not know what to suggest. Anyone else?

Re: Style set of a document has been lost

I see, at least I think I see. You will have to save all the individual styles in your document: not the palette, but the styles>paragraph → (at the bottom of the list will be the style in which you have put the cursor with the option 'edit') - they will be saved into the default set and will appear...

Re: Style set of a document has been lost

Let me get this right. When you open 'styles' > 'edit style sets' you have a number of columns. The left one represents the style sets and at the bottom of it there are icons for 'add' 'duplicate' 'delete' and then, to the right, a globe for making style set global. Is this missing?

Re: Style set of a document has been lost

I have had something similar happening, but it is not that serious: the styles are not lost, and if it is important, all you have to do is to define these 'document only' styles as global. I do not remember exactly how and why it happened for me, but perhaps something to do with the passage to 3.4? ...

Re: Insert special characters

Curious! I am afraid that the simple answer is that they are not there. Has the list been accidentally shortened in a recent update of Mellel? I started up an old computer with Mellel 2.5 but there it is the same. The easy solution, and the reason why nobody seems to have noticed this, is of course ...

Re: Mellel menu Language

As far as know Mellel adapts to your system language, i.e. if you speak German with your computer, Mellel will also speak German to you, but if you change the system language, Mellel will also change.

Re: Text size in comments

Go to preferences>Document setup where you will find 'Comment Character Attributes'. Click in the rectangle 'AaBbCc' and your font attributes palette then regulates the comments.
Hope this helps

Re: Problems Exporting to Word Doc

Glad it helped. As for the default style, in your place, I should work my changes on a copy of the default-set, so as to keep the reference version. Style-changes that you just save are kept for the document in question only. In Styles>edit style set you have the option to make a style-set global by...

Re: Problems Exporting to Word Doc

No I thought you did not use font variations, but I can see that you are using styles. Using font variations is not a question of difference, it is just doing the styles more thoroughly: within the character style, say Body which gives you TNR12, you create 'font variations' i.e. bold, Italics and s...

Re: Problems Exporting to Word Doc

There is something wrong with your style-sheet, but I cannot figure out what it is. I do this sort of thing very often - mostly from Word to Mellel, but also the other way - and it works splendidly. Your text, however, does exactly as you describe when I convert it to rtf (I do not have Word, but op...

Re: Placement of footnote separator

Well, this is not the same problem, but anyway:
There seems to be no way in Mellel not to have a footnote separator, but perhaps yours has been set to be white? Go to insert>note>edit note attributes and see if the colour of your separator has not been set to white.

Re: Footnote position

I want it placed at the bottom of the page. Yes, that would be nice, wouldn't it? I thought it was a bug, when I complained about it a long time ago, but was told that it wasn't. Perhaps some day? At the same time, one could dream about being able to decide the order in which notes from different n...
