What's new in version 5.0.7
• Added a "document name" screen when creating a new document.
• Added a "cancel" button in document rename screen.
• Major overhaul of drag & drop. Local (within document) drags are considered "move", more accurate drop location detection, whole-word drags are treated "smartly" by adding spaces before and after if needed and enabled dragging from documents containing floating images.
• Fixed an issue that caused Mellel to get stuck on a blank screen when restoring state to an open document after a restart or some other even that would cause the app to terminate.
• Better handling of failure when opening documents (showing an error message, closing the document if not opened).
• Better handling of failure to close documents, including closing documents that were not opened successfully.
• Fixed an issue that caused Mellel to fail to update a document preview immediately after closing it.
• Improved handling of documents dragged on Mellel windows, opening the document in the dragged upon window if possible and not always opening a new window.
• Fixed an issue that caused table resize handles not to be drawn and erased properly when switching in and out of tables.
• Fixed an issue that caused renaming dismiss transition to zoom icon out to the wrong item in the document browser.
• Scrolling (behind the scenes) to revel the document before doing the close transition to better orient the user when closing the document.
• Showing insertion point immediately after opening a document to allow typing right away.
• Much improved better performance and memory consumption with iCloud on.
• Better appearance of document during opening when document takes a long time to open.
• (Docx import) Fixed issues that caused Mellel to fail to import some unusually formatted docx documents exported by applications like iA writer and perhaps others.
• (Docx import) Fixed an issue that caused Mellel to fail to import docx documents containing tables with sparse grids.
• (Docx import) Properly reading reverse tab in some docx documents.
• (Docx import) Fixed an issue that caused Mellel to fail to open docx documents produced by "Marked 2".
• Fixed a few memory leaks.
