Re: Handling images in a Hebrew document

Everything you never wanted to know about Mellel images, part two Floating images Easy to use. Best for short/one-off documents. You have total freedom in placing floating images. Sometimes, for special effect I'll move an image to the edge of the page, outside the margin limits. Another trick is to...

Re: Handling images in a Hebrew document

OK, I have the time now, so here it goes: Everything you never wanted to know about Mellel images, part one Image resolution 72-150 dpi is fine for on-line documents 150-300 best for printing. You can use the sizing option [towards the upper left of the image window] to reduce/increase the image to ...

Re: Handling images in a Hebrew document

Guys, you've caught me on a very busy day, so I'll do this quickly and add more detail later. Mellel offers two different ways of handling images: floating and in-line. Floating is the default and the simplest -- you just drop the image wherever you like and it stays there BUT as Abe discovered, the...

Re: Handling images in a Hebrew document

Abe

If you are using floating images, it's a non-issue. You simply drag and drop them wherever you like, even on top of one another.

If you are using inline images, you have ti turn off the option "image causes wrap

[note the fact that it is or isn't a Hebrew document makes no difference]

Re: Numeral Alignment to Period in Lists

There is also a decimal tab which is great for lining up columns of numbers <tab> 11.001 <tab> 111.01 <tab> 1111.1 Getting it to work with Roman Numerals might be a bit of a challenge Janet ooooops: the system refuses to allow my multiple spaces for some reason -- the tab does wouk on Mellel

Re: Mixed Hebrew and English

When I first started with Mellel, I made a lot of mistakes, particularly where mixing RtL and LtR text was concerned. Eventually, I started all over with a special set of character/paragraph/section/page styles that suited my needs. There's always a learning curve . . . and a very good feeling once ...

Re: Mixed Hebrew and English

yes, AKMA, it can get a bit messy combining RtL and LtR numbers and punctuation. You need to learn to use Insert/Breaks/Direction Changing Space. Since this is a space and not simply a direction change command, some planning ahead may be required. To achieve your example, type the following [assumin...

Re: Apple Color Emojis

Interesting
The Mellel guide discusses emojis stating that you can enter those with unicode numbers.
No mention is made on the lack of display.

I'm running version 4.2.9r1 with MACOS 10.15.4

Maybe it's a version/operating system issue

Re: On-screen background colour

Sounds like a bug and/or conflict with system settings

Why don't you send a sample to support at redlers.com

Re: On-screen background colour

Also on 4.2.7 and I have no problem with the background color.

Does your problem occur with new files or with existing ones?
If you try to change the color what happens?
