About this Deal
Mellel comes equipped with a superb set of tools for the job, allowing you to control every little aspect of your footnotes, track changes, cross-reference, table of contents, citations, images, bibliography, sorting, styles, lists, and so on - while keeping things well in control via its winning outline pane.

Get on Top of Things: Keep Your Document in Order

Everyone who ever wrote a long document knows this: the longer the document gets, the harder it is to keep in order. The whole thing becomes a huge mess of headings, tables, captions, images, bookmarks, and what not.

In comes Mellel. Mellel's superb Outline tool allows you to keep things in order. It gives you a bird's eye view of your entire document, lists all the tables, images, bookmarks (all together or separately), allowing you to easily locate, jump to, move and change, collapse and expand the view, and so on. The longer your document gets, it's still easy to control it with Mellel.

Looks Matter

The way your documents look makes a difference. Mellel offers an unparalleled set of features allowing you to control how your document looks: Page, Section, Paragraph, and Character styles, Auto-titles, Lists, footnotes and endnotes: you can design all of those to the tiniest detail.

Best of all, you get to keep it: Mellel's powerful Style Sets assures that you'll be able to use any set of styles you've created with every document. Design once, use everywhere.

Design (and Re-Design) Your Headings

Ever wanted to design your headings? Well, with Mellel you really should.

Mellel's excellent Auto-title feature allows you to set a heading with multiple parts (numbering, title, numbering, tabs, and so on; apply different character styles to every part, determine how it will look in the Table of Contents, in the Outline, in Cross References, or in a repeating header (mention). And you can do that, and much more, with nine levels of heading and up to 99 caption headings (for images, tables, etc.).

What's it good for? Nothing, really... That is, until you need to get all 241 titles 1 point smaller, your numbering 1 point larger, while inserting a line break after the title. With Mellel, you can do that with a few mouse clicks and in 1 minute.
