Page ranges: dash missing after latest update (Mellel)

Post by scrollsgeek » Fri Apr 12, 2019 11:16 am

After I updated to 13.2.1, all of my Mellel footnotes with page ranges as one of the fields no longer have dashes. For example, a chapter from an edited book running from pages 51–72 now appears as 5172 in the Mellel document. The same footnotes with page ranges appeared with dashes in the previous version of Bookends, and I did not alter the style format.

The dashes still appear in the references and citations in Bookends in the formatted reference pane and in the "Example citation" in the Formats Manager.

Thanks in advance

There was a silent update that fixed this for Mellel in-text citations (e.g. (1–5) ). So download 13.2.1 again. But I don't see a problem in footnote. Please send me a simple Mellel document that has this issue and your library. I'll check it out here.

Thanks for the files. It's fixed. I'll make a silent update this evening, please download 13.2.1 again tomorrow.

Just to confirm, the page range fix worked for me. Thanks for the update.
