Re: End of Chapter notes and bibliography

Are there perhaps any further thoughts or developments on this. I'm increasingly seeing this as a much- and urgently needed feature. Is an "end of section" placement option impossible to implement? If ms+word can do it, surely the Redlers and mellel can do it.

Re: citations question

Thanks for your silence which prompted me to look more carefully. You can, of course, do this by using {^}, not {!}. So (^Wilson, 1986} will produce Wilson (1986) in the final document. Perhaps this could be added to the Mellel guide, there is no mention of this. I had to look up the answer in the B...

citations question

Hello, just to make sure I have not missed anything - can you please confirm that Mellel cannot produce automatically an author (date) (e.g. "Wilson (1996) argues...") citation? (I am currently typing the authors name then use % to produce an enclosed date)

thank you

Re: help! columns and footnotes

Thanks for clarifying that. So I guess while this styling issue could come under the general feature request of 'better handling of footnotes', the way mellel treats columns prevents this sort of thing from being implemented ever?

help! columns and footnotes

Can you please help me with this question: is it possible to have text body in two columns but footnotes in one column at the bottom of the text (on the same page)? Or do I correctly understand that when you tell mellel to place the footnotes at the bottom of the page, it arranges them in as many co...

Re: The state of the Mellel (a road map of sorts)

:lol: it's been already a few months since the redlers laid down the roadmap to mellel's immediate future. Are we going to see a new version very soon (?)

When is 2.7.3 coming out?

It is mentioned in the what's new list of bookends 11 re generation of author(date) citations (btw: great news!), so it shouldn't be long now - hopefully!

Re: Bibliography pane

You're probably right - this is an unnecessary duplication.

Speaking of citation behaviour - I wonder if we could have an 'Author (date)' option? (hope I'm not missing something here...)

Re: Snow Leopard: major problems with fonts

I finally did a clean install, and all the problems were solved. Validating fonts+removing duplicates did not help. No it's not a mellel issue, it's SL, there is discussion about this in several places, including apples support forums.

Snow Leopard: major problems with fonts

Anyone else experiencing problems with fonts and font menus after upgrading to SL? E.g. Mellel's font palette tells me some fonts is (unavailable) when everything in font book appears ok. Or names of fonts are mixed up etc.

It appears that this is an OSX issue, it's not Mellel. What a mess.

Re: Anybody any idea where we're going?

Well, if they'd let us know some sort of roadmap for development, things would be so much better. Mellel is my main wp atm, and it's by far the best there is out there, so I'd hate to see it go dead.

Re: A multi-step free way to convert Mellel to Word accurately

Thanks for the tip, but:

why don't you tell your professor to get a mac and get mellel! I've converted a colleague recently and I'm telling you, I've never seen a man so happy!
