Aye, this would definitely be a very welcome improvement.

how do i "attach" the format? You mark the "found expression" widget in the search window and then select the style that you want to apply (for example by double clicking the style in the character style palette or choosing the style variation in the character palette – depending on what you want t...

Well, I do not know how high the fee is, but there will certainly be one. If you want to save money, I would consider asking someone you know, if (s)he could buy Mellel for you using a credit card. If you give him/her the money & invite them for a coffee you also have a positive side effect, i.e. co...

I currently find myself in the same position as Taman. To finally publish my dissertation (yay!) I made a new style set and adapted it to the requirements of my publisher. However, the citations were not changed automatically along with the rest of the text. - UNSCAN citations - reformat citation (2...

And since this discussion was made before, but lost, I would love to hear a summary of what the response of the developers was. I'm guessing it was negative. Or preferably a more updated response. If my clouded memory provides me with correct information there was at least no negative response. I s...

Yes this has definitely been asked before (but may have been lost when the forums were renewed) – for whatever reason, I really really miss this feature. Somehow it is a drag to open Mellel and then seeing: only palettes. Of course, this should be an option, but it would make me feel more at home wh...

ACSII chars

Regarding non-ASCII characters in your path: that would happen if your username is (for example) elniño or loïc or if your Mellel documents or the Application resides in a folder containing non-standard characters like umlauts and accents. Some people give their harddrive a name which includes such ...

Two other things that you may try are: * Check your path names and look if there are any non-ASCII characters anywhere in the path to your documents or to your Library or to Mellel (which should reside in /Applications). * Did you try running Mellel from a new & clean user account? One more thing is...

You can reset palette positions in the Window menu: there is an entry called "Reset Palette Positions" – that should do the trick.

In addition: the Redlers are aware that dual monitor stuff in Mellel needs improvement so this might become a non-issue in the future.

Strange: when I search for mellel I get no hits, but when I search for bookends I get 44 hits. Perhaps you are searching for terms that are too common?

You could enter a ! at the beginning of the quote – but I guess that would tell Mellel to not display the citation in the text at all (it would be displayed only in the bibliography). I have never tried to enter a ! citation that includes something in backward slashes \ - usually this would force th...

Re: Trouble with citations

What I can't seem to determine is whether, with Mellel, I should enter citations as reference objects only the first time I cite a particular work (so that it gets added to the bibliography at the end) and then enter each subsequent citations of that work manually, or enter every citation in the do...
