There is no integration with reference management software (. Citavi, Reference Manager, Endnote). Because I keep my bibliography in a Circus Ponies Notebook file, I am used to copy-pasting references into the article manually. However, for some this might be a drawback.

If you have ever written a good sentence that you couldn 8767 t remember a few seconds later if you hadn 8767 t written it down, you will appreciate this feature. It let 8767 s you focus on writing, not on securing what you have written.

I have used Mellel since it first appeared. It is solid, and I particularly like it because it handles right-to-left text (Hebrew) superbly, as well as many other languages. If I have serious writing with footnotes, I use Mellel.
79. A simple rule - if you are presenting information in the form of a table or graph make sure you introduce the table or graph in your text. And then, following the insertion of the table/graph, make sure you discuss it. If there is nothing to discuss then you may want to question even inserting it.
