Re: Updated advice on equations and equation numbering

Having now written a lengthy document using equations, I have two amendments to what I wrote earlier: 1. To get the equation number to be on the same line as the equation pasted in from, e.g., MathType, it may be necessary to adjust the character style for equation number so as to move the baseline ...

Character Style and TOCs

Is it only me? Over the years, I've had trouble generating correct TOCs because some of the headings come out bold when I want them not to be. If no one else has had these problems, then I am resigned to my dullard's shame. However, the interface seems confusing. Whether dealing with a selection of ...

Re: Formatting Autotitle Elements

Hi, I had in mind auto titles, not tags. Your note, however, caused me to disentangle setting each element's Numbering Unit (e.g., arabic or Latin) and setting "style" paragraph or character style. This morning, I experimented again and had better luck setting the styles of elements separately. Perh...

Formatting Autotitle Elements

I have a hard time formatting auto titles and must be doing something wrong, probably very elementary. I thought that the idea was to select a given element of an autotitle definition and double-click the relevant paragraph format in the paragraph palette. However, I frequently am unable to get this...

Re: Updated advice on equations and equation numbering

Let me add some important items. 1. Equation and Equation Number on Same Line . The auto-title approach (Method 2 in my previous post) allows for the equation number to be on the same line as the equation. When defining the auto-title for Equation Number, set a tab close to the right margin where yo...

Re: Updated advice on equations and equation numbering

Responding to my own question, I have tried two methods for entering equations. Both seem acceptable. The first may be more feasible with the new beta's treatment of tables. The latter is what Ori suggested months ago (using autotitles). Method 1. Insert a table with two columns, one row. Adjust the...

List orders

It is possible to put lists of, e.g., character styles or paragraph styles in whatever order one wants. That seems to work only on one's current device. Is there a file that can be synchronized across devices, perhaps in Library/Application Support? If so, I don't see it.

Re: how to remove auto-title attribute?

I see no problem here with Mellel. 1. Copy the header in question (or, if numbered, just the text part) 2. Paste Special as Plain Text as a new line. 3. Delete the previous header. You can do as you wish with the string of text, as usual. If you copied and pasted special an entire numbered auto titl...

Web for Custom Stuff?

Is it possible to store custom styles, autotitles, etc. in the cloud, ideally in Dropbox? If so, where do I specify the location?

Sonny Software made it possible to do this with Bookends, which is very convenient. One sets the location of custom folders in its Preference file.

Updated advice on equations and equation numbering

It has been some time since these matters were discussed on the Forum. What are the most effective methods people have found for using equations in Mellel, preferably to include automated equation numbering? In the past, I have used MathType and have entered numbers manually (without automation). I ...

Table Styles?

Unless I have missed it, Mellel does not have personalized Table Styles. It would be convenient if one could define table styles and insert them. As a crude substitute, I have created a separate file with tables having 2, 3, and 4 columns, with the cells all in the desired text format and with my pr...
