Re: to pay for mac and IOS?

With the whole world moving to a subscription based payment system, I am greatfull that Lit and Lat is selling Scrivener at an affordable price. I bought the iOS version as well and would have payed more. Scrivener iOS is a fully functioning app and not a viewer. Expecting it for "free" fe...

Cool, real life story beats. I only want the Apple watch to transcribe the story from my mind into Scrivener.

Re: Future of Scrivener?

I am looking forward to seeing Scrivener on iOS. But, its inclusion in the platform is not suddenly going to make me a better writer. I would love to see a mature product with the syncing kinks worked out and I am sure that L&L will put out a solid product. I have been playing with the new Ulyss...

Re: Quicksilver or Launchbar? Or Alfred??

I liked the new changes to Launchbar. I can read it now. However, I'm sticking to Alfred because the new Launch bar doesn't really offer me anything more. Although, I have always liked Launchbar's ability for instant send (Alferd has it to,but you have to remember a different keyboard shortcut) and ...

Re: Best Features About This Software?

That said, my "holy reorganization Batman!" moment came when I started to understand how powerful splitting docs into smaller segments really is. Talk about making my non-linear ramblings easier to manage... Have to emphasize Jaysen's comments. There is something powerful about the abilit...

Re: I must be an idiot

I think Scrivener can be overwhelming for people because there are so many ways to organize it. But, I what I found revolutionary with Scrivener is that it truly is a non-linear Thought processor(I can write whatever part that I want to write and I am not tied to a particular structure). Write the h...

Re: Tree - a horizontal outliner

I've used Tree and I find it interesting. I think it is better for highly structured documents with a timeline- novel, plays etc... , where it is good to have structure and content visible. How are you using it differently than a regular outliner ? What types of documents are you outlining ? How doe...

Re: Circus Ponies for iPad offer

The new CP notebook for iOS does not add any new features, but it is compatible with the new xml format for CP. This means it is a whole lot faster (and more useful) than its predecessor. Outlining is still a bit clunky but its speed is a definite improvement.

Re: sync with dropbox and index card

I think an iPad app would be neat. But, to be honest when I write in Scrivener, I want space and lots of it. Multiple screens - even better. I prefer writing something more complex on my iMac vs my Mac Book Air because of the extra screen real-estate(I am over 40 now, so this may have a role to play...

Re: Farewell to Evernote

I seem to recall that Hugh persuaded me to buy Curio 7, but alas, I never took time to work with it much. So I upgraded to version 8 and see that it's just as complex as ever, but it has evolved into more of a note-taking and planning tool instead of presentations. Will try to persevere, this time....

Re: Testing alternatives to Dropbox

Has anyone tried BitTorrent Sync for Scrivener files. I have been using it for regular files and it is fast. But, I have not have the courage to try a .scriv file yet.

Re: Using Scrivener My Way

I think Scrivener is a lot more "complete" tool for idea processing. Word pretends it is a never ending typewriter with some afterthoughts that it is hosted on a computer. Scrivener on the other hand is written to get the ideas out first. But, I like to use more than one tool - Scapple/iTh...

Re: Voice Recognition Software

Nuance just-released Dragon Dictate 4. Every time there is a new release of Dragon Dictate I was hold my breath in anticipation. Mostly I wonder if this program will continue running and not have any serious hangups. It seems with each incarnation I expect less. This version of Dragon Dictate is exc...
