Wow :shock:

That's impressively hard core.


Why so? My developer friends say that Python is an exquisitely lovely and easy language to write meaningful code in.

OSX is going FAR beyond anything Windows has done in this regard.

Re: You OK, Jaysen?

n my opinion, the culture of fear is out of control. It's not a culture of fear. That's simply the by-product of a culture of laziness and convenience, of a culture whose educational roots are attacked and eroded through intent and neglect, while the people are offered the pablum of entertainment a...

Re: Moving by paragraphs doesn't work

Food for thought: the beta release notes are quite clear that there are large chunks of functionality that are not yet present. It is simple to query if the functionality you are looking for is one of those missing chunks. When they get to the point they say the beta is feature complete and they are...

As a note, please never, ever, ever joke about killing yourself.

At the very least, you avoid causing pain for people who have loved ones who have done so.

Y'all, this would be just one of the many reasons they say not to use the beta versions for stuff you care about.

Re: Add Scrivener link conversion to "Convert lists and tables to Multimarkdown" compile option

Now, you needed lists/tables converted but not links, and this is a specific use-case… I do however think Links are very important for other workflows, especially cross-linking within the document which is much harder to manage post-compile. Personally I would always want my links converted, I can’...

Re: Set up dependencies between documents

I don't think this is the sort of thing that would really fit what Scrivener does, since Scrivener is essentially a sequence of documents with no logic dictated inside Scrivener itself. It would also be quite limited, since it would depend on chronological ordering, which isn't how everything is wr...

Re: Set up dependencies between documents

I was hoping for some sort of constraint system that worked real-time in the Binder before compilation, but I'll have to give these ideas a look later. Thanks for the brainstorming.

Re: Set up dependencies between documents

Would Scrivener warn me if the dates (or other metadata field I used) were in the wrong order, though?

Set up dependencies between documents

I would like a simple mechanism to track dependencies between documents. I can already use metadata to set up groups of documents that express a particular theme or character arc, but what I don't have is an easy way to configure set-ups/pay-off or other "this before that" scenarios and ha...
