Re: How to delete references in Bookends

Then I would recommend Columbia University and the University of California (Melvyl?) filters for books. These two seem to provide abstracts and/or tables of content more frequently than others. For journal articles this might be difficult – it usually works fine if you find them via Web of Science,...

Re: How to delete references in Bookends

When I want to look for references on the internet with BE, which is the source, among the many offered by BE, which gives the references as well as their abstracts? This is very difficult to answer, because we don’t know what kind of references you are dealing with. Maybe we can help you if we kno...

Re: footnotes: missing space number and text

Or you use a space instead of a tab / an indent in between the footnote number and the footnote text.

Re: Please fix a very minor but irritating bug

Another strange, minor but also somewhat irritating bug occurs when I scroll through the document. There is not only the usual vertical movement but also a very small, one or two pixel only, horizontal shift that immediately snaps back. It is only barely noticeable – but this is exactly what makes i...

Re: Mellel Stable?

I guess I would switch. I seem to remember that time, and I might have had a document or two that was a bit tricky, but since then I have updated all my Mellel documents to the new format without problems. In any case, I am sure that you will have a backup of all of your documents – and you can just...

Thread answer e-mail notification does not work

Does the thread subscription work for anyone here on the forum? That is, do you get e-mail notifications if anyone answers to a topic which you have subscribed to / in which you posted?

Re: Update producing multiple apps

However, I don't know what posting a sticky means or how to do it. Oh, this is only something that only the forum moderators (i.e. the Redlers) can do. Making it a sticky means to take a forum thread and pin it to the top of the list, so that people who come here looking for a solution will quickly...

Re: Update producing multiple apps

Currently it seems as if the only/best solution is to not use the automatic update function and instead download the most recent version manually. The problem is that the existing Mellel application, which is in fact a bundle (i.e. a folder that is presented as a file), cannot be overwritten directl...

Re: Table of Contents - Out of Control

More seriously I found that whenever I made a ToC - certain of the titles would randomly be distributed across pages - sometimes with what looked like page breaks between each line. In other words a ToC with, say, 40 lines would be split over 40 pages with one line on each. But there were no page b...

Re: Feature request: Page style break after this page

Sorry for causing confusion! No there isn’t.

(I put the “different” in there because I also thought about other word processors who offer a “different header for first page” solution.)

Re: Feature request: Page style break after this page

I was a bit confused first too, but now I think that sounds like a really nice feature. Much more flexible than the no/different header on first page solution that we currently have! I heartily second this request :)

Re: Citation appearance and character styles

Have you tried pasting as plain text, i.e. using the keyboard shortcut command-alt-V (or was it command-alt-shift-V ?)

Re: Citation appearance and character styles

5.) Scan the document again >> the style of the citation changes to style A, while the style of the paragraph remains unchanged (i.e. style B). sorry for a potentially unhelpful question but: does this also happen if you first unscan and then rescan? And yes, you should probably update at least to ...

Re: Comparing 2 Mellel files

If comparing plain text is good enough for you, then I would recommend copy-pasting the contents of your documents into two text files and let TextWrangler compare them. TextWrangler is freeware and has extremely powerful find&replace and comparison functions.
