Mellel 6.0

Mellel the company has issued version 6.0 of Mellel the word processor, a major upgrade that brings welcome new features and improvements. The release introduces a split view feature for editing two parts of your document at once (great for translating, writing commentary, or comparing texts); adds support for Dark mode; enhances Mellel’s find-and-replace with the capability to convert text into an Auto-title, Citation, Note (footnote or endnote) or Hyperlink; improves indexing with the option to import and export index records; adds support for exporting an outline to a Mellel document; and enables you to expand and collapse Outline items using arrow keys.

The update also unifies menu labels and adds dividers for numbering types in pop-up menus, fixes a bug that caused only one index record to be deleted when attempting to delete multiple index records, resolves an issue that cut off the format menu of the insert date sheet, ensures image and text boxes are shown in the track changes bubble, and requires a minimum of macOS 10.13 High Sierra. Mellel 6 is now priced at $69.99, and owners of any previous version can upgrade for $44.99. Mellel is also available for the iPad for $19.99. ($69.99 new, $44.99 upgrade, 94 MB, release notes, macOS 10.13+)

  1. I just checked, and it seems I bought Mellel for $19 in 2003. At least 6 updates since then have cost a multiple of that, but I like supporting small software shops (and Mellel is as small as they come). Even though the original intention was to use something smaller than Word (or OpenOffice), it now feels like being back to using just a tiny portion of what the program does. But what the heck - here’s to the next 20 years!

  2. I love Mellel. It is so well organized and internally consistent. Helps me stay organized in my writing somehow. It’s on sale now via Winterfest.
