Mellel 3.2.7

Send Article to a Friend

Smoothing out the rough spots, RedleX has released Mellel 3.2.7 with several fixes to improve stability and performance. The word processor gets a fix for a crash that occurred with the Spotlight plug-in when trying to index template files, adds support for small caps in formatted citations and bibliographies, fixes a problem with non-functioning smart quotes in OS X 10.9 Mavericks using the Hebrew keyboard layout, avoids a crash when Mellel scanned documents containing empty citations, and fixes a problem with Bookends 12.0.6 that prevented live bibliographies from functioning correctly. As of this writing, the Mac App Store version remains at version 3.2.6. ($39 new from RedleX and the Mac App Store, free update, 97.7 MB, release notes)
