RedleX has released Mellel 3.4.4 with a feast of improvements and bug fixes for the word processor. The update adds Coptic, Thai, and Lao scripts to the secondary font script list, brings improved support for font substitution with Coptic text, fixes a bug that caused Mellel to crash when closing a window while in fullscreen mode, resolves an italics issue on bibliography scans when the final citation starts with italics, adds support for “)” bracketing for citations, and fixes a number of issues with setting up and adjusting the markers submenu, palette, and keyboard shortcuts when the focus is in the find/replace fields. RedleX also updated Mellel for iPad with added support for Command-B, Command-I, and Command-U shortcuts (when using a Bluetooth-enabled hardware keyboard) to toggle bold, italic, and underline, plus improved split screen behavior. ($39 new from RedleX and the Mac App Store, free update, 93.2 MB, release notes, 10.6+)
