Since it looks like Office Mac 2011 still won't support RTL languages (!) I can imagine a lot of users of Logos Mac will be using Mellel for Hebrew documents. Would it be possible to add support in CopyBibleVerses for Mellel (including the "Copy and Paste" button and, as evidently is the case for Word, support for specifying styles for header, footer, ForEachVerse, etc.)? This would be helpful---at least to me, and, I imagine, a lot of other users getting increasingly frustrated with Word!

Thanks!

We'll consider adding the option in the future. In the meantime, it is possible to get your text into Mellel (or any other word processor) from Copy Bible Verses by clicking the "Copy" button and manually pasting into Mellel.

Thanks, David. I've already noted that, and am using it that way. I don't know what's involved in passing along the "style" to Mellel, but that's the particular feature I'd find especially helpful. (Or, equivalently, being able to specify CSS style attributes in the <p> element, if that would be interpreted correctly by Mellel.)

I echo this request. I love Pages, but the more I write academic papers, the more I turn back to Mellel. Also, if I never have to use Word again, I would be happy. (I am not a Microsoft hater, I just want a simple word processor interface.)

Also, if there was a way to import the library into a citation manager (i.e. Bookends), that would be nice. What I mean is that if there was a way to export all of the bibliographic information into, let's say, a BibTex format, than I would not have to jump back and forth trying to make sure my bibliography is correct. While I love Logos, it's library does not have every book available that I need for research.

I agree with Seth. I really need a way to easily import bibliographic information for my Logos books into Bookends without having to manually enter dozens of books. Can we see this in the future?
