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

    Check with Art Scroll as to the software that it uses for the gemarrah. 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

  • A lot of seforim use Davka Writer

    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.
