Re: Causality Story Sequencer?

Hi, I found this program when looking at their site for another app they sell, but Hollywood Camera Work's app Causality ( https://www.hollywoodcamerawork.com/causality.html ) is a visual story outliner. It has no integration with Scrivener whatsoever at this point, but you can write a script or bo...

How can I convert my footnotes as well as documents to default formatting?


If they are in the Inspector, highlight them all and then the right-click menu has that option.

Re: scapple development

Seeing as how we’re all using the word ‘binder’ here, what about organising your Scapple files in a Scrivener project? :) If that’s the whole point of the project, you can select the Research folder and use the View ▸ Outline ▸ Hoist Binder command to ignore Draft and Trash. Now you have a clean wo...

Re: Opening/Editing Files In Bbedit

... I can't find any good statistics on this, but I don't think anyone can seriously argue that most writers are using Markdown or similar. To your average person, text with asterisks dotted through it is far more unwieldy than simple formatting. I feel pretty confident in saying that the majority ...

Aeon on IOS

Aeon have just announced a new iOS version. It syncs with the Desktop via iCloud and (better news) Dropbox. I use Aeon both for the structuring of my history of medicine projects (obvious uses there) and for project management of them. I think the iOS version is going to be extremely useful for both...

Good thoughts about iThoughts

I've used iThoughts for quite a while; my Scapple lieutenant (it reads Scapple files) for iPad.

It suddenly got even better this week as it now has a very nice outline feature.

Re: Coping and Pasting Binder folders/scenes/items

Wow. Not one single bit of help. One word. NEVER BUY SCRIVENER. IT'S A WASTE OF VALUABLE TIME AND MONEY. Au Contraire - I couldn't make my living if it wasn't for Scrivener, and for many others it makes life easier, but as you seem to have deleted your query after just a few hours, none of us can n...

Re: Turning 400,000 words of notes into a non-fiction book.

I'm really surprised that nobody seems to have suggested that you seek out some editorial help. [Full disclosure: I am a freelance editor, so I may be biased as to the benefits. :wink: ] Sometimes a fresh pair of eyes can do a world of good when you hit a point with a project that you're overwhelme...

Re: Turning 400,000 words of notes into a non-fiction book.

A few years ago I finally hit on the winning combination of analogue A3 sheets and Scapple daily; a larger and very organic overview in Tinderbox; and - informed by all of these - what Abbott calls writing (and linking) `mini-analyses' in Scrivener. (Abbott's *Digital Paper* is intended for graduat...

Re: Turning 400,000 words of notes into a non-fiction book.

I fall into the "write it from scratch" group. What you have been doing so far is *research.* Research is a different task, requiring a different mental approach. It is not at all surprising for the research to total many more words than the book's target length. I also agree with the &qu...

Re: for Scapple users

I get the impression that .... I don’t. To me he/she sounds more like a rather young users, thinking there is a ”best way” to do things in life. A belief most of us more elderly users have long since let go of. Life just IS. Absolutely: I've just bought a new car, which way should I drive? Should I...

Re: Scapple and other platforms (iOS, Windows etc)

Ha! I finally found the forum for this topic :D I am foaming at the mouth for Scapple on iOS. Ditto on all previous requests. Just saying :wink: I found a really nice work-around: Scrivener on my MBA with Scapple on my iPad Pro via a Duet link. Sadly my MBA is now dying, but it was fun while it las...

Re: Bibliographic workflow within scrivener...

Here's how I look at it. Writing is a project based task. Eventually every Scrivener document will be done or abandoned. Anything which should have a lifespan beyond a particular project shouldn't be in a project document. Reference management is part of the infrastructure. (I regularly cite source...

Re: Mechanical, Dongle-free Bluetooth Keyboard?

When you write "mechanical", Dr D, do you mean "really mechanical" (i.e. butterfly switches etc), or just "not on glass"? The reason I ask is that I have paired my iPad pro with a Brydge. The Brydge is mechanical in the way that many keyboards are now mechanical, so pe...
