Comments on Tutorial

Don Here are some comments, mostly about typos, some about clarity. I've also noted in bold instances in which I think Mellel should be changed . The tutorial is quite useful and well written. A noble effort! 22 The "start" versus "indent" distinction is indeed unclear. There should be a single pict...

Limitations of Import/Export

I find that I still can't explain to a colleague what dangers lurk or don't lurk in moving to Mellel. Compatibility with Word seems remarkably good (going through the rtf stage); I'm impressed. However, I'm not clear as to its limitations and am reticent to make statements on the matter to colleague...

Re: Paradigms

All things considered, I would put by far the biggest weight on having a simple-but-excellent mode, based probably on a richer set of custom templates and some tweaking of the interface for consistency. Sorry for touching upon this last point in an off-topicish manner -- can you elaborate a little ...

Paradigms

The discussion on highlighting raised basic questions about what attributes are desirable as Mellel goes forward. One paradigm is for a superb but seemingly light word processor, something like a modern-day version of Word 5.1, for those who remember it. "Modern-day" would include the very nice outl...

Well, I seem to have found a "solution," but it's a hack. The problem is that the equation number wants to be on a lower line because, if it's inserted to the right of the equation with autottile, it starts a new paragraph (unless there is a way to avoid that). To get the number to appear where it s...

Equation numbers on the right?

How do I automatically label equations on the right? As below:

E=MC^2 Eq. (1)

I can make an autotitle for equations, and I have been able to get it to work on the left, but in my denseness I have not been able to do it as above.
