Re: MathType and Catalina

I think that's precisely right. I have Word myself but I'd given up on MathType a while back because they weren't getting anything going in Catalina and Big Sur, which I needed. My one caution is you might have baseline issues of your own copying from Word to Mellel. Good luck. As to my own situatio...

Re: MathType and Catalina

Dear Paul, I feel your pain. Until recently Wiris said it was working on a version of MathType that would work across applications in newer versions of the Mac OS, but changes in how the OS operates had already led its old competitor, MathMagic, to give up. It looks like Wiris is giving up as well. ...

Re: 4 Feature Requests

A couple questions about what you have in mind. As to 1, is what you want an option for Mellel to automatically open a new DOCUMENT on launch? (I have no use for this myself, but tastes differ.) As to 4, for as long as I can remember Mellel has respected the built-in kerning in PostScript and TrueTy...

Re: Quotation marks (English)

A procedure for managing this task using Mellel's Find Set feature is in the Mellel Guide, at the end of the Advanced Typography section, "Replacing Straight Quotes." (p. 207 of the current version of the Guide)

Re: Bibliography is inserted before endnotes?

This might or might not help in your situation, but page breaks and page RANGE breaks (also known as page style breaks) are two different things. You need a page break whenever you want to force the text to continue on a fresh page, but you ordinarily need a page RANGE break only when you want to ch...

Re: Bibliography is inserted before endnotes?

Boris’s old workaround should still work as well. Elaborating: Using Insert > Note > Edit note attributes, you can set endnotes to print at each section break (or at each page range break). Then if you write your document so that there’s just one section break (or just one page range break), at the ...

Re: best method for sharing templates/style sets

Style sets are stored as files with the suffix .sset in Library/Application Support/Mellel 5/Style Sets Custom templates are stored as files with the suffix .mtem in Library/Application Support/Mellel 5/Templates/My Templates So you should be able to make style sets and templates available on other ...

Re: Exporting from Scrivener to Mellel

I haven’t tried anything fancy along these lines myself, but I suspect the best way to handle it would be RTF export and import, since Scrivener handles text as RTF internally. I assume the math you speak of consists of mathematical formulas turned out by MathType or some similar palette based equat...

Re: Grammar in Mellel

My understanding is that the spelling and grammar options chosen in System Preferences don't apply in Mellel since Mellel doesn't use Apple's text rendering system and provides its own spell checking internally. There's no built in grammar checking in Mellel at this time, but Mellel recently added s...

Re: Numeral Alignment to Period in Lists

Looks like you need what Mellel calls a reverse tab, placed on the ruler just to the right of where you want your periods to be. The reverse tab icon is the next to last one in the tab well at the left hand end of the toolbar. Drag that icon onto the ruler where you want the reverse tab to be, once ...

Re: Some lines are hidden

This bug has been reported and the Redlers are working on it. It can happen on small files as well as large ones, and selecting the affected paragraphs by dragging over them seems to bring back any missing text. The text isn't gone, it just fails to display properly.

Re: Mellel 5 and docx

Footnote export is working fine for many of us, and you don't describe any special features of your documents that might be responsible for the problem. You should report this to support and send the Redlers an affected document so they can look for bugs.
