Re: Swedish Localisation v. 4

Are there any plans to add Swedish again? If you choose "Support" from the Help menu, you can contact Mellel directly and ask them. Then post the answer here. I notice that Danish, Finnish, Norwegian - all with less number of native speakers - are supported The number of native speakers is not nece...

Re: Swedish Localisation v. 4

I am using Mellel v. 4 and it is in English despite my system language being Swedish. Is this an error or is it just not (yet) available? According to the Mellel Guide (p. 202 f.), there are 17 localizations currently available for Mellel's User Interface. Swedish is not among them: 1. Chinese (Sim...

Re: auto titles numbering

the screenshots are in my Dropbox. I'm sorry ClioBrNl, I can only see the first screenshot. Dropbox tells me that "Screen Shot 2017-11-22 at 14…" doesn't exist. You need to tell Dropbox to *share* those links, like you seem to have done with the first one, so that everyone can view them. Now obviou...

Re: auto titles numbering

I made some screenshots but I do not know how to upload them here. You can not upload screenshots here. Use one of the many free file sharing web services for this purpose. MediaFire, for example, gives you 10 GB free space. I use it when I share files with members of this forum. https://www.mediaf...

Re: auto titles numbering

Hello ClioBrNl, Your posts are not quite clear. In the first post it seems you want to have Acknowledgements, list of abbreviations, introduction, conclusion and appendices WITHOUT any numbers, but Mellel stubbornly adds numbers to them, although you don't want it. Is that correct? Then in another p...

Re: Auto-titles in text boxes

Actually a lot of features are lacking for text boxes: auto-titles, bookmarks, comments, references, cross-references, figures, tables,... That's a pity because (as mentioned previously), it makes text boxes almost useless for academic documents. I've never tried to put anything else than text insi...

How do I make Document Styles global?

I have a global Style Set with a paragraph style in it called "Body." Now I select some paragraphs in a document and use the Paragraph styles palette to assign the style to the selection. The style is ticked in the palette, as expected. So far, so good. If I then open the current Style Set (Styles >...

Re: Auto-titles in text boxes

I'm so disappointed and stunned over this obviously missing feature. Before I read Fedtegrevinde's post, I was not aware that this problem exists. So, thank you Fedtegrevinde for bringing this up. I have not been able to figure out how to do this in Mellel. Therefore I would like to strongly suppor...

Re: Auto-titles in text boxes

To be sure I understand you correctly, you want to use text boxes as captions for floating (?) images, because Image Caption in the Auto-Title pane can be difficult or even impossible to place right under the image. Is that correct? Are you trying to do something like this? View screenshot. https://...

Re: Getting rid of residual citation markers

Here is something else you should try. Export the document as rtf and open it in another application. This will work as laundry and remove all traces of the inauspicious blue color. I just tried this in LibreOffice and Nisus Writer Pro. The blue color went away. All the formatting was retained, incl...

Re: Getting rid of residual citation markers

Hi Joseph, My previous suggestion was based on marker colors, but now, after I inserted real temporary citations from Bookends, I get the same result as you. Paste Character Attributes is indeed grayed out. "Browse All Versions" doesn't show up as an option for me under "Revert," so I wasn't able to...

Re: Getting rid of residual citation markers

I can't see any obvious way to remove these traces of the previous citations so that I can start over. Any advice on this topic would be much appreciated. Did you try to revert to an older version via File > Revert To > Browse All Versions…? You could also just select the highlighted text and paste...

Re: Shortcut for Small Caps

For Antidote, I use Mellel and I don't want to use Nisus (it isn't properly update[d], and the user interface is a shame for retina screens). Thanks Gustave, I didn't know that. I don't have Retina. [the] More we request Antidote integration, [the] more the developers of Mellel would make it a real...
