Re: Feature request: Accessibility -- vision

In the palettes, for example, I can't read the names of the character styles When I come to think of it, the Styles palette in Nisus Writer Pro has a so called "Style Preview Mode" where you can choose whether you want to see the styles as (1) Plain Text, (2) Formatted Text or (3) Formatted Text - ...

Re: Feature request: Accessibility -- vision

Hi Janet, Why are you posting this here? Feature requests should be sent directly to Eyal. He has made it clear that he doesn't (regularly) read the posts here, and he wants bug reports and feature requests sent directly to him. In the palettes, for example, I can't read the names of the character s...

Re: Workaround for margin numbers / Workaround für Randnummern

Es scheint, die Nummern bei dir sind am linken Rand und nicht am rechten Rand wie hier:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/7d2ad22ac ... f.zip/file

Können die wahlweise am linken oder rechten Rand stehen?

Könntest du vielleicht einen Screenshot hochladen, bitte?
Danke.

Re: Feature request: dark mode

Talking about menu icons…, you also need to know the following. You can create your own icons in Nisus and link them to any menu command and any macro you like. This can be very useful. This can not be done in Mellel! I'm sure no other Nisus user in the world has a menubar which looks like mine. I h...

Re: Feature request: dark mode

weird stuff like: if I switch to "Icon Only" mode on the toolbar, half the icons become cut-off and off-center. Ah, I think I understand now what you mean. You are not referring to dark mode but to what happens when you right-click on the menubar and chose "Icon Only". Am I right? From which mode d...

Re: Feature request: dark mode

Thank you for your examples. I've only spent maybe thirty minutes trying to figure out Nisus Writer Pro. Learning Nisus in 30 minutes is impossible and sounds like a joke. The same applies to Mellel, by the way. the interface is more cluttered and less thoughtfully laid out than Mellel's This is inc...

Unfortunately it seems (at least in my brief testing) to be not as good in other ways as Mellel
Please give detailed examples.

Thank you.

Re: Page Style Break Question

my best solution is to produce 3 PDF documents No, that is your worst solution. When I put in a "page style break" it also adds a blank page to my document right before the new page style. Your Range Start (in the Page palette > Attributes) is probably wrongly set to Even Page or Odd Page instead o...

Half-arsed implementation of footnotes

*** 14 years*** since the original post. Just as relevant now as it was 14 years ago! A post by nicka from 2007 : "isn't it odd that you can restart note numbering with every section, but you can't collect notes at the end of a section? If you want to restart numbering with each section, then it's a...

Re: Bibliography is inserted before endnotes?

Found another thread about the same issue, BE biblio placement, written by mkenney, and an answer by one of the Redlers. The answer reads like this: "I think you should expect positive developments here soon". This was 2006, 14 years ago. Makes me want to cry… <http://forum.mellel.com/viewtopic.php?...

This is much, much more important than new features like the Story mode , as it effectively makes it impossible to use Sections in academic works . Please can this be now placed on a higher ...

Re: Bibliography is inserted before endnotes?

I won't take the risk of multiplying workarounds in a 100k words book. Just curious, why do the notes have to be endnotes, grouped at the end of the document? Why not use footnotes? They are much more reader-friendly. If it's required by the publishing company, what are their supporting arguments f...

Re: Bibliography is inserted before endnotes?

I'm a bit disappointed […] this kind of thing is a no go for a bigger project with Mellel. The only method which seems to work reasonably well is the following: Note Stream: Endnote Position: End of document Numbering: Continuous Separator: No line (in case we later want to precede the notes with a...
