    "Great product - BUT"

    January 22, 2006  |   By adamsh


    This review was originally posted on
    really, this is a great little application, it could be the best word processor on the mac platform, but because of one problem i find myself not wanting to use it. what's with the import and export text formats? why can't we just open an RTF or DOC documents, and then save them in the same format again by just choosing save? this problem just makes mellel almost unusable on my end.

    i work for a major news paper, and we would have bought copies for many many computers if only we could use it for our workflow, but since we also have to export the text and import it everytime, we will stick to nisus for now... hopefully this problem will be solved soon.
