Re: Indexing based on a word-list

In that non-Mellel product, I have a document with one character style and two paragraph styes. Paragraph one is based on the character style. Paragraph two is based on paragraph one with font attribute changes. […] I made three or four adjustments in the character styles. Then, the paragraphs in t...

Re: Indexing based on a word-list

Inventing the means to extract ASCII versions of Mellel documents is a short afternoon, even if you start from scratch. And exporting the document directly from within Mellel as Plain Text takes even less time. :–) Why choose a thorny, long-winding serpentine country lane when the broad and comfort...

Re: The phpBB forum software and screenshots (to Eyal !)

To me this rather looks like the forum software is outdated because when you click "New Topic" you should see an Attachment tab at the bottom of the page.

The current phpBB version is 3.3.8

Re: Indexing based on a word-list

How do you get to the Mellel xml internals? Are you using a special xml editor? And if so, which one? Nisus […] got quirks. You can say a paragraph style is based on a character style, for example, but changing the underlying character style won't always change the paragraph style. I have not been a...

Re: Indexing based on a word-list

Is there any tool in Mellel allowing to create an index based on a word list? I'm afraid not. It is an extremely convenient feature of Word. It is very rough and there is a lot of work after that of cleansing You can also create multiple types of word lists in Nisus, and no cleansing is necessary. ...

The phpBB forum software and screenshots (to Eyal !)

The Mellel forums use the phpBB forum software , which—I may be wrong—I think is a free software. This software allows users to post screenshots very easily. For some reason, this option has not been enabled by the Redlers. I wonder why… Is it perhaps because such an option involves extra payment by...

Re: "Feature requests" or no "Feature requests". That is here the question…

Thanks for responding, Eyal. Responding to feature requests needs not be a nuisance for the developer. Just say, (1) "Thanks for the feature request. I have added your vote to our list." or (2) "Hard to implement. Will take long time." or (3) "This feature is unlikely to be ...

Re: Location of Endnotes amd bibliographies

Getting old and forgetful was just a stupid joke. Glad you didn't find it offensive. :–) perhaps the method could be used at the very end, after the manuscript is complete. That would be a very bad solution. the citations would not be automatically corrected if the reference in the Bookends library ...

Re: Location of Endnotes amd bibliographies

OK, boys and gals… Here you have a solution that should work. 1. Create a Static Group in Bookends for each chapter of the book. If the book has 10 chapters, you will need 10 Static Groups. 2. When entering citations in Mellel, do it exclusively via the "Citation" command (Edit > Copy Form...

"Feature requests" or no "Feature requests". That is here the question…

In the past, people have often requested new features in the forums. Never, ever have I seen a reply to such requests from the developer. Therefore my question is now: Is this the right place to post 'Feature requests' ? Or is one always supposed to contact the developer directly? In case this quest...

More colors for "Highlight notes on screen"

Under Insert > Note > Edit Note Attributes… > General Options there is a "Highlight notes on screen" option. Enabling this option will show the reference marker on screen in pale purple color. This color is so soft that it's hardly distinguishable on the screen, which is bad when you are d...

Re: Location of Endnotes amd bibliographies

Hello my dear Paul, Are you becoming old and forgetful like me? I saw you elaborate on this topic in 2011 and provide several work-arounds … which all did not work, of course, because, as far as I know, this much-needed feature is simply still not available in Mellel. :–(( http://forum.mellel.com/vi...

Re: Feature request: folders

I’m using the Mellel version on the iPad Pro.
Oh sorry, I didn't know that. I don't have an iPad myself, so just ignore my comments.
Good luck.

Re: Feature request: folders

To give Eyal a clear idea of what you want, you should be a bit more specific. How exactly do you want this feature to look like? Like the Document Manager in Nisus Writer Pro? (1) Should the folders be organized hierarchically? And be searchable? (2) How exactly would you like to organize your Mell...
