What software is available that allows Hebrew and English and multiple sections? i.e. the main section and then a footnote/pirush (section #2) on that, and then a 3rd section which footnotes items in section #2 providing further עיון. This is very common in seforim, but I don't know what software is used.

thanks in advance Nov 2022 Update - Mellel.com has a great feature of allowing multiple note "streams" which can keep track of different notes (e.g. notes on the main section vs. notes on the עיון section. Q- However it's mac only - anyone know of windows s/w with this feature?

Also with help @magicker72 I found a perfect add in to Adobe Indesign id-extras.com/products/footwork which is exactly what was looking for (they even show a sefer as an example) - though very expensive add in $385

    Check with Art Scroll as to the software that it uses for the gemarrah. Commented Aug 22, 2019 at 23:19

    @Sabbahillel I had always made up that it was custom, but of course I don’t know. Maybe there are some details in the zlotowitz biography

    When I did my mock Artscroll some time back I used Apple’s Pages app.

    I repeat, Mellel is exactly what you are looking for. I am also in commercial printing and work in multiple languages including Hebrew. If you want to spend more money, you should consider InDesign Middle Eastern version. You can do anything with it, but it’s probably way more than you need and is a lot more money than Mellel.

    Thanks, I contacted the author and he referenced me to id-extras.com/products/footwork which is exactly what was looking for (they even show a sefer as an example) - though very expensive add in $385
