Re: Feature request: split view

Just wanted to add my voice to those who have already requested this feature. It's one I regularly wish were available.

Apple Color Emojis

Just a small thing, but… Is there some trick to displaying Apple Color Emojis in a Mellel 4 document? The emojis are there because when I export a Mellel file with emojis as rtf and open it in TextEdit or Nisus, I can see them. But not in the original Mellel file or in the rtf file opened in Mellel.

Re: footnotes in files exported to rtf

Thanks for the information. I was still confused but your suggestion about Nisus helped me figure out what's going on. Or at least I think so. When I opened the Mellel-exported rtf in Nisus, the notes were indeed numbered continuously. (I've set footnote style is set to continuous numbering in both ...

footnotes in files exported to rtf

When I export a Mellel 4 file to rtf the footnote symbol attributes are changed. The continuous numbering of the original Mellel file is changed to restart with page, and the note symbol font and size in the Mellel file are changed to Helvetica Neue 11, which I gather is a default. Is there a way of...

Re: Text box in 3.5

I'm having a different problem with the Text Box feature, using 10.9.5. When I try to edit my trial text box (for example, by toggling between inline and floating), Mellel crashes. It's happened five times so far, two of which I've reported. I'm about ready to give up on the feature until whatever i...

Re: Find Action delete

I notice that no one has replied to this post. In case you haven't yet worked out how to delete a find action, this is the only way I've found: 1. Open the Find Set dialogue box. 2. Locate the individual Find Action you want to delete in All Actions or in a Find Set, and select that individual actio...

Mellel on ipad

I've just recently got Mellel for my ipad and I have a few questions/requests: 1. Are there any plans to set up a separate Mellel forum for postings regarding the ipad version? 2. I notice that some of the fonts in the font list are in parentheses and I've been unable to discover what this means. Ca...

Endnotes and Page Ranges

Mellel is great in allowing you to create multi-chapter documents where each chapter has its own header, page numbering, and note numbering. What Mellel doesn't seem to let you do—not that I can see at any rate—is to position each chapter's notes at the end of that chapter. When you select an Endnot...

dictionary lookup in notes

There's a 'feature' of Mellel 3.3 that I'm finding a bit annoying. My memory tells me that, prior to 3.3, right clicking on a selected word in a footnote or endnote gave you the option of looking that word up in Apple's dictionary, as is still the case with selections in the main text. Where that op...

note to reference in mellel 3.3

I've just installed 3.3 and almost immediately noticed that jumping from a note to a note reference doesn't work as documented. Pressing esc in the note body does work as advertised, but double-clicking the notesymbol/number doesn't seem to work as it should. With endnotes, it gets me to the right p...

Re: Character formatting not kept in Auto-titles (Figures)

Thanks for that Eyal. I've just tried it on a test file, and the cross-references in footnotes are coming out in the correct style.

Re: Character formatting not kept in Auto-titles (Figures)

In June 2013 I posted a query on the other forum regarding a problem with the character format of Auto-title references in footnotes. I couldn't get the cross references to match the smaller font size of my footnotes, and ended up having to manually change them all. I wonder whether my earlier probl...

In a file I was working on today, there is a section with two columns. When I view that section in Mellel view, everything looks fine. When I switch to compact view, that section no longer displays properly. The header and footer text and the leftmost ten characters of 11pt Times in the left column ...

Re: "Pooled object not found" ??

I have the same problem with opening old mellel files in 3.2.1. From those I've checked, the problem seems to be with any file last modified before April 2005. In my case, that's about 60 files that I now can't open. I understand that backwards compatibility can be a problem but... Is there going to...
