Mellel 2.5 adds cross referencing prowess

Mellel 2.5

RedleX has released Mellel 2.5, a significant update to the leading word processor for Mac OS X. The new release adds robust cross referencing capabilities, allowing users to refer from one point in the text to another (e.g., "see page 15"). Mellel's reference entry dialogue allows, accordingly, to create reference formats, composed of different elements such as reference to the page number, position in the text (above, next page, below, etc.), page range, and so on. Users can also save and re-use such formats again and again, making the necessary modifications as they go along.

The program also allows users to view bookmarks, images, headings, footnotes, figures, etc. in context and as they appear in the text. An image preview, for example, helps users identify images in the document with ease; Bookmarks appear with their surrounding text.

References are updated "live," so users can see changes reflected immediately, and do not have to manually update or print the document. Mellel offers a tool to track down references to non-existing targets. Mellel 2.5 is free to all registered users of Mellel who've purchased Mellel after May 2006. Users who've purchased Mellel earlier can purchase an upgrade for $20. The price for a single user license is $50, and the educational license is $35.

    "the leading word processor for Mac OS X"

    Err, I think you just posted a press release again, or does "leading" now mean "having sold the least units"?
