One month later, and still no answer… Maybe that's because your question is ambiguous. What kind of abbreviations are you talking about? And for what purpose?

If you have a text expanding feature in mind, then the answer is no.

Apple's text replacement feature in System Preferences –> Keyboard –> Text does not work in Mellel. Many Mellel users use Typinator for this kind of job. Typinator is a great European system-wide text expanding utility, but it does not fully support Mellel: you lose markers, text boxes and footnotes. Also, if you insert a formatted Mellel table into Typinator, you'll lose the formatting when you insert the table back into Mellel.

My sincere apologization, I was writing a thesis, I meant to do list of abbreviations. I just wandered if there is something on Mellel. I am sorry for inconvenience.
