Migrate spelling dictionary

Where is the user dictionary located and how can it be migrated? I am referring to the result of selecting an allegedly mis-spelled work and saying to "Learn spelling."

Re: Page break before auto-title

I edited the Auto-title stream (pencil) and, in my style for Chapter title (H1), I selected "Page break" in the menu for "Insert Before", which is one of title-flow attributes close to the top of the auto-title editing window. Did you do something different? Mine is working fine in Mellel 5. I just ...

Re: Keystroke for citation insertion Bookends-Mellel

Try the other forum so more smart people see it. I suspect that you have the same problem I have had from time to time, and have again today after updating to Mellel 5 and the most recent Bookends. It involves a failure of proper communication at the level of Apple Events. But perhaps it's something...

Finding broken references

How do I search to find all instances of where some reference has broken, as appears in text with # signs.

Re: Bibliography not generating

One possibility. Bookends has a preference setting for Word Processor (top left of Preferences window). If that's not set to Mellel, then might be the culprit. If you've previously been using Word, for example, then Bookends might be set for Word. You say that this is your first time. Do you mean to...

Re: weird file open bug with version 4.2.9r1

This may be a red herring, but today I was unable to open old Mellel files by double-clicking or--with Mellel open--by using File/Open. Nothing else seemed odd. However, I restarted the computer and all was well. I am using Mojave 10.4.6.

Re: Order of items in Table of Contents

Regrettably, that's not the problem. I had the "List as separate section in TOC" enabled. This causes all figures in the main text to appear together (rather than intermingled with text sections), but all appendix figures appear together later. The problem, I believe, is that my auto-title set-up fo...

Order of items in Table of Contents

My table of contents is coming out in the order dictated, apparently, by my auto-title setup. The TOC generated automatically looks odd-- with the appendix figures and tables being listed at the end. Is there place to specify that, instead, all figures should come out together, and that all tables s...

Re: Accepting Changes Incrementally

Being able to accept changes in a selected passage would be very helpful. Re-reading and checking a marked-up passage can be very difficult because of the combination of strikeouts, additions, and difficult-to-see changes (e.g., deletion of spaces). Here is a work-around. It's probably been obvious ...

Re: ALLCAPS character attribute does not export to .rtf

I just checked with a new manuscript and export to .docx works really well if you -- export from Mellel to pdf -- uses the Adobe pdf to Word service, which--except for a trial period--requires a small yearly fee Examples: 1. Front matter is numbered correctly as i, ii, .... 2. Main text is numbered ...
