Re: leading or line height

OK I can change the leading manually,

but c/f paragraph style,
is this in Styles > Paragraph Styles > Body?

It doesn't do much to the leading though.

leading or line height

Hi & good day,

In Mellel I cannot find where to adjust the leading or line height of my document. There is "Attributes, Styles" for my font but nothing more? Is this not possible - as it seemed from the other threads on this subject?

>You have to construct it yourself by inputting alit plus the ligature.

Could you point towards an explanation how to do this please?

Would be great!

Simple feature request: Font default

Good day,

My simple feature request would be to allow Mellel a certain font/ font-size default from start-up.

It's weary to always start with "Times New Roman" size 12 and then to manually change to another font.

Please!

Thank you,

Re: Arabic connecting letters not connecting_2

>3. The two files you mention are zip files. Zip is a format for packing data to make it easier to send on the net. If you double-click a zip file, it will unpack. These look to be a font and a keyboard layout both of which you probably already have installed on your computer. So, yes, go ahead and ...

Times New Roman, 12 pt with Arabic-QWERTY. ... test with another common font, say Lucida Grande, and see what happens. Janet Well, right on! It functions with Lucida, which is enough for me, but I feel I may want to read more - especially how to have both Arabic and Latin letters on one page, do yo...

Arabic connecting letters not connecting_2

Good day, Although this topic has been up here before, I still don't find a valid answer. When writing f ex mim - wau, the letters will connect nicely, but when I try to insert a shaddah or other nunuation, the root letters (such as mim - wau or any others ) are disconnected. Am I missing something ...
