Re: Feature request: Notes

Have you tried adding "Comments" (via the edit menu, or command-K)? These can be viewed by opening the Annotations pane (via view menu, also has a keyboard shortcut). You can paste text cut from other applications into these comments, which are appended to specific points in your Mellel document. I ...

Re: Use of iCloud with non MAS copy of Mellel

I guess that depends on what you mean by "'messing' with." Probably the only things you can't do with it are move it or rename it. You can certainly create subfolders and drag-drop files into it, etc. I use the RedleX-version of Mellel (3.4.1) and the iOS version, and they work well together (hyphen...

Re: Hyphenation not longer working [problem solved with 3.4.

Hyphenation now works perfectly in the desktop version, but when documents are then opened in the iOS version, hyphenation does not carry over. Not a huge deal for me right now, but if I were to print from my iPad, I might change my mind about that. I can only assume the next iOS update will impleme...

Re: Insert special characters

Thanks for the replies -- they prompted me to take a closer look at the Mac's built-in approaches. I'm embarrassed to say that I didn't know that simply holding down a letter key triggers a small palate of relevant accented characters to appear, no matter the application. Very simple, and explains w...

Insert special characters

There is no doubt a smple answer to this question, but I can't find it in the manual: if I want to quickly insert a lower-case accented character "on the fly," as it were, is there a simple way to do this via the Insert menu? -- only upper-case letters (with the exception of c-cedille, IIRC) seem to...

Re: Making the bibliography window in the palette useful

I mentioned this once in a posting over a year ago. I make extensive use of citations from Bookends in long documents, and would love to be able to invoke entries already used elsewhere in the long document. But the listing in the palette gives too little (or the wrong) information for me to be abl...
