Quotation marks (English)

A large part of a current document was done with either the old Dragon for Mac (ver. 5 and 6) or Apple dictation/voice control. This resulted in a quite a few quotation marks that were not converted to typographer's quotation marks. For some reason I am having no luck in constructing a search and re...

Voice Control in Catalina

Has anybody tried to use voice control with Mellel. Before they discontinued dragon I used it with great success with the Mellel. So far, I have been unable to get voice control in Catalina to type anything into Mellel at all. Has anybody had any better luck?

Re: Secondary font question

I will attach an image of the secondary font setup. Well I was going to but could not get the image into the post. But as far as I can tell, my character style is according to what you are saying. I will have to figure out how to post a picture. Thank for your willingness to help!

Re: Footnote Continuation Separator - longer line

the footnote continuation separator is used when a footnote is too long to fit on the page and must be continued on the following page. Usually, this is a longer line which signals readers that there is something different about these notes. In Mellel, all lines are the same length. Have I overlook...

Re: Secondary font question

I need to put quite a few quotations in Greek in the footnotes of my document. The document itself is written in English. I am trying to set up the secondary font so that it will cover that and invoke the Doulos SIL font when I am copying the Greek text from the document in which I have compiled th...

Copy paragraph style to a different style set

When I drag a paragraph style over to a different style said I get a green +, which seems to indicate it should copy, but it does not. Is it possible to copy a paragraph style from one style said to another or do you have to re-created from scratch? Allow me to elaborate. I wanted to move a certain ...

Mellel and Dragon

I love your word processor for my academic writing chores. The integration of Bookends is extremely helpful. As are many of the other features like auto titles etc. This is more of a request. I like to do my writing in your program, particularly after I have sketched out the basics in Scrivener. The...

The Holiday announcement

In some of the version of the announcement, it reminds you that if you "upgrade" now, 4.0 will be free. Question: how do we know if you qualify for 4.0 free or if we should go ahead and "upgrade" now?

Re: Not Scanning Bibliographic Links with Sente

Hello, I've been happily using Mellel with Sente with no problems. Recently, though, when I hit "Scan document" (with Sente open in the background), it brings up a window saying "Scanning document . . . " and just sits there without anything happening. It is only doing this with one document; other...

Re: Live Bib, chapters, and my Dissertation

Hmm, yes that seems to be a bug in Sente. I would send an email to the support. You can add an element, and there is an element called "paragraph separator" but it doesn't seem to be working. Is this how you tried? Yes. That is what they told me to do. I when I pointed it that did not work, I was i...

Re: Live Bib, chapters, and my Dissertation

I'm a former Bookends user and know it well. Sente's bibliography format editor is probably the most powerful on the market. This issue is probably better on the Sente forum, but I'm happy to try and help if I can. It will not put a return into the bibliography. I want my bib to look like this: Aut...
