Re: Ori Redler 1964-2020

Digging into my email archive, my first exchange with Ori dates back to 2003 - as ever friendly, helpful and precise with his advice or comments. I will miss his voice and his commitment.

v4 -> v5 - How to migrate the "Hyphenation User Dictionary"?

Launching v5, most of my settings were successfully migrated (e.g. short cuts), but not my rather long list of personal hyphenations collected over the last decades. As a first attempt, I copied the file from ~/Library/Application Support/Mellel 4/Hyphenation Dictionaries/User Dictionary, but with n...

Re: Bug in 4.1 - underlining / stroke through with certain fonts

Thanks, Janet - same here, the "usual suspects" are fine, but the somehow unusual suspects show this strange behaviour (Skia, and others). It would be a pity if I have to abandon “Hoefler”. It was (or still is?) a font even to be found in some earlier iOS versions. BTW, my font (/Library/Fonts) date...

Bug in 4.1 - underlining / stroke through with certain fonts

Hello everyone, After updating to the new version (4.1) today, strokes as part of the text (underlining and stroke through) appear in certain fonts in a very ugly thick manner, not only on screen, but also as printed text. (Heavy problems with Hoefler [my favorite font] and others, no problems with ...

Hi Eyal,

Thanks for the clarification - I try to build a search & replace routine for this.

Corrupt files (Mellel 3 opened by Mellel 4)

Dear all, Trying to open some older (2014, 2015) files, presumably created or modified by Mellel 3, there are strange placeholders within the text I encounter repeatedly: [### error - illegal character ###] The rest of the text is ok. These markers seem to be related to multi-structured intends, may...

Hyphenation not longer working [problem solved with 3.4.1]

Hyphenation is not longer working in all my respective documents / paragraph styles - regardless the defined language (German & English). I already reinstalled the Hyphenation set from the website, without any results. The user dictionary is also defunct (= adding a word/hyphenation doesn't change a...

Mellel and OmniOutliner, best practice?

Is there someone out there who has established a workflow integrating Mellel and Omni Outliner? I'm aware of some (not so happy) discussions regarding the interplay between Scrivener and Mellel, but now I am interested in hints on how to work with OO and Mellel - not only from OO to Mellel, but the ...

Mellel to Pages (doc!) doesn't work anymore

Since the last upgrade I can't open files from Mellel exported as “doc” in Pages (v. 5.2.2) anymore.
All it is saying is “Pages doesn't support rtf files”.
What's wrong? Pages?!
Is there hope for improvement or a workaround?

Thanks!

Re: Not a bug, but … (vers. 3.x)

First of all: Thank you for the reply! Please excuse my imprecise description / language about "shrinking", I try to explain it in other words: Hiding the toolbar, in contrast to other "hide xyz" actions, results in a vertical reduction of the whole document (from the lower edge of the screen, appro...

Not a bug, but … (vers. 3.x)

I stumbled over a few new settings in 3.X, settings, that seem to be “fixed” and are contrary to the workflow I'm used to (< 2.9). Maybe other users have the same issue but don't mention it. 1) New documents always open in the middle of the screen, not at the position the previous window has been lo...

New Icon in Finder mode …

The new version is really wonderful, but: Am I right, and the new icon looks a little bit clumsy? Not as sharp as the former one? Especially when switching within the Finder (command + tab or similar) …
All the best

2.2 Title flow styles don't match shifting between stylesets

Shifting regularly between two styles sets, one for printing and one for presentation/fullscreen modus, I’m facing a problem with the new version 2.2 (and 2.2.1, too): Certain character styles as part of the “Auto titles”, although provided with exactly the same names, won't match any more.
