Re: Crash at startup in 10.11 beta 3

Thanks for the workaround. Awestruck that you knew how to find it.

Re: Organizing 200+ articles in a single project?

I'm a journalist too. Your requirements might be different, but for me, it is more elegant to use built-to-purpose software. That means Devonthink to squirrel away research and a dedicated writing tool for production. It would be certainly possible to use Scrivener to do everything, but it would be ...

Re: printed page layout view

Aha, yes, it was the custom page view I meant.
So, I spent a couple fruitless hours looking for the option, thinking you had hidden it somewhere, and it didn't exist! Least I'm not going mad.
Will it make a return?

printed page layout view

Have I missed something?

In Scrivener 2.5, there appears to be no "Printed Page Layout" setting under View-Page View. Has it moved somewhere, or been deleted?

Re: Scapple Beta - New Users Please Read

Very late to the Scapple party. I considered falling to my knees, sobbing with joy, when I saw what this was about. Tried mindmapping, detested it, but have long wanted a digital napkin that I could throw things at and then roughly formalise if necessary. And then make practical use of it. And here ...

Re: Best keyboard / case combo for writing on iPad while commuti

I think this will do the trick.

Pricey, but if it is as good in use as it is in looks, a nice complement to the iPad.

Re: Revision on the iPad

Have you tried Daedalus Touch? It seems to me to have the best balance of simplicity and function, although discovering the function is not always blindingly obvious. You can also ask it to number files imported from Dropbox, or leave them as they are.

Re: iPad HD Remarks

I'm going to spring for a new iPad, my first, and I'll get a 3G version. The reason: when I'm travelling overseas, it's too expensive to use my iPhone on global roaming charges, but I'm a restless roamer of new cities and I love the maps and information capabilities of the iPhone/iPad. And wifi acce...

I knew as soon as I pressed "submit" that I was probably going off half-cocked.

Mouse and card stacks

The corkboard is designed to be used with a mouse, but there's no way to drill down through stacks of cards with the mouse. While I'm moving cards around with the mouse, I'd also like a way to a) temporarily fan out a card stack to see what's in it, maybe by pressing a mouse button over a toggle poi...

Re: Large-Scale Info Managers and Scriv

I recently had a go at freeing myself from a long - seven years? - reliance on Devonthink and tried managing everything in the file system. I'm a journalist, always with at least 5-10 projects in my "Shipping" folder, plus a constant inflow of new possibilities and a comet trail of loose e...

Re: Post your Scrivener screenshots here!

Yr Lordship, Thanks for the tips. I have Cousine and Liberation Mono on my system. I picked them up on my monospace font search, but my eye prefers Inconsolata. There's a thesis in why people are attuned to certain fonts. There's another thesis in why some people don't care about fonts at all. My wi...

Re: favorite todo list programs?

I've always preferred being off the map. Serendipity is my favourite form of discovery.

Ioa, your biographer won't thank you for that script. Writing legibly on that scale must be closer to painting portrait minatures than the slap-dash process I call writing.

Re: Lion: First Impressions

Like all my attempts at purity and virtue, it won't last long. You might try wearing a white smock while writing. Might improve your success rate. The dirt is within. Besides, what's the point of working from home if you can't wear working clothes be-scunged with four days of farm grime, as I am now?
