Re: Mellel won't work at all after latest update

I haven't had this 3.2 problem YET but another user I'll refer to here as O, who doesn't have forum posting privileges, has asked me to report that he is having exactly the problems reported by Joel Naber and by Passopp. Everything seems fine on O's own computer running 10.6.x but the problems appea...

Character attributes in cross-references

I'm experimenting with auto-titles for the first time in a paper I'm working on, and it's proving a bit frustrating. I have cross-references to auto-titles both in the body of the paper and in the footnotes. The problem is that the character settings for these two sorts of objects are different—the ...

Re: More on Mellel 3 and Spotlight

My apologies for lack of faith! Re-indexing the directories containing Mellel documents seems to have fixed the problem. Of course, I'm still curious about why the issue arose in the first place. And that is not just idle curiosity. The issue has cropped up twice for me in the past month and a bit, ...

Re: More on Mellel 3 and Spotlight

The only Mellel mdimporter that shows up is the one at the path: /Applications/Mellel.app/Contents/Library/Spotlight/SpotlightPlugin.mdimporter I can do a re-index of course, at least of the Document directory where all my Mellel documents are (to save time), but I do wonder whether it's going to he...

Re: More on Mellel 3 and Spotlight

I hate to have to raise this one again, but it seems that after the 10.7.5 mess and the Spotlight reindexing, I find myself with the same Spotlight content issue for Mellel documents that I reported earlier. Spotlight only finds content in Mellel 3.0.2 documents if those documents have been saved su...

Re: computer treats mellel as new install

Whatever the problem was, the 10.7.5 patch seems to have made it go away :) After Spotlight had finished re-indexing, Mellel files opened as expected without the new application dialog box. I've no idea what was going on before, or how the 10.7.5 problem might have been implicated, but I suppose I s...

computer treats mellel as new install

I'm not sure how to report this but I'll start with this forum. I'm one of those unfortunates who upgraded to 10.7.5 (on a late 2011 Macbook pro) and then tried a Time Machine backup, thereby killing off Spotlight. In the course of trying to fix the problem—before I gave up and decided to wait for A...

Re: 3.0 Wish List

I'd like to add another cry for a split screen feature. Working on reasonably long documents there's hardly a day that I don't find my work slowed down by its absence.

Re: More on Mellel 3 and Spotlight

I don't mean to make this posting into a dialogue, but can I just ask whether fixing the ML issue you refer to will also fix the problem I described using Lion. I probably should have mentioned that I'm running 3.0.1 in Lion, not ML.

More on Mellel 3 and Spotlight

The Spotlight content fix in 3.0.1 works fine for files created or modified by Mellel 3, but I've just noticed that Spotlight still fails to find content in Mellel files created with earlier versions of Mellel and not subsequently modified. The only way I've found to handle this problem is to open t...

Re: Lion, Mellel and Spotlight

This morning out of the blue Spotlight in Lion stopped finding Mellel content. Before I found this thread on the forum I reindexed Spotlight, to no avail. Am I right in concluding that what was Mellel.mdimporter in 2.x is SpotlightPlugin.mdimporter in 3.0? In any case, it didn't show up when I ran: ...

Select All Footnotes

Is there some way to select all footnotes (in a stream) in Mellel 3? The problem I'm having is spell checking. If I want to change the spell check language from my default, the main text is no problem. But I can't figure out how to change the language in footnotes except one footnote at a time.
