    Hello,

    I'm new to Ulysses and getting used to the semantic text editing. I like it, but my workflow is not yet optimal. I was wondering what wordprocessor you guys use for the layout of the final document. I don't think I can export a PDF with a table of content, so I guess a wordprocessor is still needed.

    Pages was my wordprocessor, but it won't accept footnotes. What can you recommend?

    Thanks,
    regards
    Maurice

    Pages does footnotes just fine.

    Look at the Pages User Guide, page 52.

    You're right Mavado, Apple Pages does not accept footnotes from other applications like Ulysses. I use Nisus Writer Pro which seems to have the best features all-around. I can see comments from people using Microsoft Word and Apple Pages. It reads footnotes from Ulysses perfectly fine. And it has its own set of powerful features.

    Agreed on the footnotes. Now, if Nisus writer pro would 'get' my heading styles, it would be perfect!

    Mellel accepts the footnotes, too. Via rtf. I don't really use this option often so cannot comment on the ease of this workflow vs that of Nisus (which I do not use at all), but you can try it out.

    Well, I was on my way buying Nisus, when I decided to give Openoffice.org a go. Well, what do you know, it handles footnotes just fine, can make a nice table of contents and, best of all, it's free. For now, my workflow is Ulysses -> concept RTF -> Openoffice.org -> final PDF -> storage in Papers

    Thanks for the responses.
