Re: Compiling for Beta Readers

Thanks. I was considering making an e-book for the digital civilians and giving the pros the .docx files they live by. Maybe I'll try printing out an e-book for the luddites, and see how it looks.

Re: Compiling for Beta Readers

Thanks, Mark. I've tried double-sided in the past, and readers found it irritating unless it was presented as bound galleys, which isn't cost-effective here. Two-across ten-point would slim things down nicely, I think, and be easy enough to produce after export to Apple Pages. The Pros will all read...

Compiling for Beta Readers

Having reached the FInis point on the WIP, I need to send out reading copies so my friends can tell me where I suck and why. The usual suspects are all pros, and so get .docx manuscripts via email. But this time there are some civilians in the mix, some of them decidedly un-digital. Any thoughts on ...

Re: Update iOS version.. some news?

I doubt an iOS update will be available until after iOS 12 debuts next week. After that, there'll pretty much have to be a new Scrivener iOS to work with the new code and features. Search the forum; there's a number of previous posts about it.

And, a show of hands for Keith labeling Dark Mode in the menu as Scriven-noir?

I mean, we've got Text Tidying, don't we?

Re: Scrivener for journalists

Like Mark, I've been using Scrivener for 12 years: magazine columns, book reviews, cover blurbs, feature articles, a couple of books, not to mention editing a complex magazine at every stage from acquisitions (and rejections) to final transmittal to the production department. Over time I tweaked the...

Re: I Will be Switching to Mac in August

OTOH, the Mac comes with sufficient software preinstalled that most folks won't need anything else. I long ago dropped Word for Pages and Excel for numbers, and various note-taking apps for not-great-but-good-enough Apple Notes. The only non-built-in apps I use these days are Scrivener, SuperDuper, ...

Re: I Will be Switching to Mac in August

I switched in 2000. The hardest thing for me was continually searching for the difficult way to do things, instead of understanding there was almost always an easier, simple, Mac way--mostly dragging stuff around and dropping it. I never did learn the Mac replacement for Control-Alt-Delete. Though i...
