HEllo, I am going to write my thesis with Mellel. I figured out most of the things, but I still have questions.
1. When create outline for figure it creates figure name on screen. But, when I put image it puts the image on the upper outline, not in the figure outline. Is it possible to group it?
2. is it possible to use papers for citations?
3. I created my title page without making any outline, do I have to?

I don't understand the first question.
2. is it possible to use papers for citations?
Papers is now just a reference manager for Microsoft Word. Entering citations and creating a bibliography in Word is easy with Papers, but almost impossible in Mellel and Nisus, because the "Format Manuscript" command doesn't work in these applications. When I contacted the support a year or two ago, they had no plans to support Mellel, I even had the impression that they didn't know what it is! They don't also support Pages 6.
Bookends is not only cheaper, it's also much better in every conceivable way, and it fully integrates with Mellel and Nisus.
3. I created my title page without making any outline, do I have to?
I don't think you have to.

What is your field of learning, and why did you choose Mellel?
