Snap text to grid?

Post by centralasian » Wed Aug 30, 2017 3:25 pm

Just bought the upgrade to 4.
I'm curious if there is a "snap to grid" option in Mellel for text, as in InDesign? I find that the lines are not vertically aligned, and show through the pages. Is there anything like this in the new (or old) Mellel?

We don't have a similar feature to inDesign's Snap to Grid feature for text, but you can achieve the same result using a couple of workarounds:

1) Using tabs to align the text.
2) Adding a table with zero padding and removing the table lines.

Feel free to reply on this thread or open a support request if you need more information on these options.
