Mellel has issued Mellel 4.2, a major update that introduces a revamped table feature with new attributes and options such as headers and footers, repeating headers, styles, alternating row colors, outer padding, and corner radius. Other table-related additions include formulas (sum, average, product, and standard deviation functions), a new selection mode for modifying a table “as object,” and column- and row-resizing user interface improvements.
The word processor built for long-form writing also makes contextual menus more consistent for text boxes; adds proper support for undo, drag and drop, and editing inline hyperlinks in the Page style editor for headers and footers; adds the DOCX file type to the document types list; and resolves many issues with cursor management in text boxes inside tables. ($49 new from Mellel and the Mac App Store, free update, 82.2 MB, release notes, macOS 10.6+)
