macOS Apps/Updates

Mellel has released Mellel 4.1, an update to its word processor. The upgrade offers a host of new export capabilities and features for both its Mac and iPad versions.

Mellel can now import Microsoft Word DOCX documents.  Users can now set letter-spacing easily. A Minimum Word Spacing feature gives a way to squeeze and maximize spacing. Users can now change the color of items in an outline, can truncate outline items so they don’t wrap and more.

You can now set the indent for continuing paragraphs within the Auto-title setup, allowing you to set auto-indent faster and with less clutter. With the new Story Feature, writers can create or draw story points on a line of their own. This makes the points more apparent when displayed, and unobtrusive when hidden. The Auto-title palette now shows the flow level of selected auto-titles in the text or in the outline with a checkmark. This helps writers keep a birds-eye view of their structure as they create.

Mellel 4.1 for the Mac costs $59 for a regular license; Mellel 4.1 for iPad costs $19.99. A demo version for the Mac is available for download.
