What’s New

Version 5.0.7

• Added a "document name" screen when creating a new document.
• Added a "cancel" button in document rename screen.
• Major overhaul of drag & drop. Local (within document) drags are considered "move", more accurate drop location detection, whole-word drags are treated "smartly" by adding spaces before and after if needed and enabled dragging from documents containing floating images.
• Fixed an issue that caused Mellel to get stuck on a blank screen when restoring state to an open document after a restart or some other even that would cause the app to terminate.
• Better handling of failure when opening documents (showing an error message, closing the document if not opened).
• Better handling of failure to close documents, including closing documents that were not opened successfully.
• Fixed an issue that caused Mellel to fail to update a document preview immediately after closing it.
• Improved handling of documents dragged on Mellel windows, opening the document in the dragged upon window if possible and not always opening a new window.
• Fixed an issue that caused table resize handles not to be drawn and erased properly when switching in and out of tables.
• Fixed an issue that caused renaming dismiss transition to zoom icon out to the wrong item in the document browser.
• Scrolling (behind the scenes) to revel the document before doing the close transition to better orient the user when closing the document.
• Showing insertion point immediately after opening a document to allow typing right away.
• Much improved better performance and memory consumption with iCloud on.
• Better appearance of document during opening when document takes a long time to open.
• (Docx import) Fixed issues that caused Mellel to fail to import some unusually formatted docx documents exported by applications like iA writer and perhaps others.
• (Docx import) Fixed an issue that caused Mellel to fail to import docx documents containing tables with sparse grids.
• (Docx import) Properly reading reverse tab in some docx documents.
• (Docx import) Fixed an issue that caused Mellel to fail to open docx documents produced by "Marked 2".
• Fixed a few memory leaks.

Extemely limited!

Mellel doesn’t even have autocorrect! How useless is that? I’ve tried it several times and fail to see any advantages over other note-taking apps such as Apple Notes, for example. Or Microsoft Word or Apple Pages (these are excellent). Many others are way more capable than this overly-simplified one.

Terrific complement to Mellel for Mac

I use the Mac version for documents with many 'chapters' and sub-heading with a table of contents. I love it. And Mellel for IPad means that I can take my Documents with me and work on them away from home. There are two things I would like to see for this app. 1. To be able to organize several documents into one notebook or file. 2. To be able to use the system emojis in a document as well as change font colors within a document.

Limited Power

This is the companion iOS app to Mellel word processor, which is a unique and fine piece of software.

Mellel on iOS is very good for writing and editing, especially long form writing. It is also so buggy that currently it’s use is limited. Prime example is iCloud Drive—you never know if the app is going to read the drive’s contents, and it usually does not, and fixing that is pretty much rolling the dice via reboots.

Since this currently does one thing that I don’t need right now, I’ve stopped using it. Whenever the iCloud integration works, I’ll start using it again.
