Mellel 4.1

RedleX has issued Mellel 4.1 with a number of new features, including native DOCX file format import, character tracking, auto-kerning for most TrueType fonts, and minimum word spacing. The word processor receives enhancements to its outline capabilities, including alternating colors for outline items, no double indent for wrapping items, and an option to truncate items instead of wrapping the lines.

The release also draws story points on their own line with a default font and a background with lines along the sides, ensures the Auto-title palette reflects the selection in the outline pane, fixes a bug that caused strikethroughs to be drawn at the bottom of the letters instead of the middle in macOS 10.13 High Sierra, and resolves an issue that would cause bibliography scanning to override character attributes. ($59 new from RedleX and the Mac App Store, $29 upgrade, free update, 89.1 MB, release notes, 10.6+)
