Really want to like the app but have a few issues with it

The idea of having Mellel on my iPad, portable…powerful I really like. There’s a few things I think it really needs to be a better mobile writing experience (and if they exist already please let me know). 1. Ability to set keyboard shortcuts for different auto-titles, and a custom font (like body with red text), bullet, and outlines. This constant task of having to tap insert and reselect the number slows me down incredibly. 2. The mac keyboard shortcuts do not work properly to navigate lines. The very important cmd+ left arrow, or cmd+ right arrow should navigate on the current line and they do not. They jump to the top of the document, but not even the actual top (which is the purpose of cmd+ up arrow/down arrow which work as expected). 3. Proper folder support in the Documents view - no idea why there are no folders, but I just have a bunch of documents in an unorganized group. Even if I have my documents in folders they just all show in place. 4. Ability to open Mellel files as a pdf on iPhone from iCloud, or a Mellel Viewer app for iPhone… I don’t always have my iPad or computer with me so this is really essential as well. 5. Click+shift to highlight a section of test does not work as well as click and drag to highlight text. (Apple magic keyboard). If these could be fixed it would make the writing experience so much better, thanks!

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.
