The word processor for scholars, writers, and long document writing.

Overview

Mellel is the leading word processor for OS X and has been widely considered the industry standard for long form documents since its inception. Mellel focuses on writers and scholars for technical writing and multilingual word processing. It offers special tools to help you write and organize long documents easily. If you need multilingual support or are writing bi-directional text, Mellel is just the thing for you: Arabic, Persian, Hebrew, and Syriac never looked better on a Mac. Even if you don't need all the bells and whistles, Mellel is still the right choice for you: clean, stable, and easy to use.

I was checking on other applications and just had to see how my favorite word processing program was being treated in the ratings and comments, and rate and comment myself. Let me say this: As a professional researcher and writer, if Mellel were ever to disappear, I would be devastated. I've been using it for over ten years now and can honestly say that, for serious writers (especially those who need to use non-Latin characters a lot), there is no better program. Combined with Bookends and it's exquisite. Even with massive manuscripts, it's very fast. It never hangs, or pauses, or moves slowly through a document. One can have a two- or four-page viewing. One can easily use (and label!) various colors of highlighters. Then there is the outline pane, with autotitles, that helps me move quickly through the documents and keep my conception of it clear. Tracking changes and posting comments is also super-easy. Then there is the great index feature. Why do people even bother with other programs. I truly adore this program! I can't say enough good about it!

Hurray! After more than a month of waiting Mellel 5 has finally arrived here on MacUpdate! Still, it's such a wonderful word processor that is surely worth waiting for. I just wonder why some applications take so long to show on MacUpdate. Would anyone from MacUpdate please tell us the reason. Thanks.

Today (Jul 6, 2020) "Mellel 5.0" saw the light of day. It'll hopefully be released here soon. It's a great leap forward especially if you are dealing with ePUB and can also export its documents with great ease and precision to Microsoft Words Open XML Format. I upgraded with closed eyes because I've been using Mellel for many years on end and it has always kept its promises on developing new features continuously. This is a masterpiece in software engineering especially for those you like me who write in RIGHT-TO-LEFT languages and need those special features to handle texts correctly. Highly recommended.

Mellel and the Mellel/Bookends combination are first rate for writers, especially for those with complex documents. The 5.0 version is a landmark for Mellel because it now exports accurately to Word and ePub.

For me meanwhile the best word processor. Fast - not very big - reliable - and updated if any error occurs. A big thanks to the developers: thank you so much for this grat program.

Mellel has always been my favorite wordprocessor and Mellel 4.2 has notably enhanced its “table” features. Its developer is dedicated to make it better and better. He listens to his customers’ suggestions and carries them out without fail. What is so great in this process is that he doesn’t charge extra fees for all his hard work. All these significant changes occure in abosolute silence and unlike some other developers the version number doesn’t jump from 4 to 5 in a matter of a month or two to oblige customers to cough up more for the new version and all features that were missing before. This what I like about this developer and his work. His support is second to none and his application runs smoothly on all Macs. What do we need more?
