Re: Quitter + Scrivener

No problem, Sean. Thanks anyways.
A search through Google didn't bring any reasonable solution, either.

Re: Quitter + Scrivener

Hi.
Thanks for the pointer to Quitter.
I am looking for a Windows 10 tool that does the same trick with ScrivWin.

Any suggestions?

Thanks, Franz

Re: What happened to Circus Ponies?

Vivian.

Just curious: Why don't you continue to use CP till the end of your project? If I am not mistaken the software does not stop working right now.

So, tell us, globus999. Who is it written for?
And what "manual" do you refer to?

Re: StorySkeleton - create Scrivener projects on iPhone!

Hi David. Thanks for the quick response. (Perhaps a setting to switch between the two default behaviors.) Yes. That would be fine. You can currently customize the Card Types/Plot Points list to contain any points that are relevant for the projects you work on, although one thing I intend to add even...

Re: StorySkeleton - create Scrivener projects on iPhone!

Fine tool, David. Two things you might consider: 1. When I tap in the header of an index card, I usually want to edit the header. However, StorySkeleton opens the "Select Card Type" dialog, where I have to tap "quicktype" to be able to edit the header. For me, that's one tap too ...

Re: FormalAddress

Hi Dave. You needn't apologize. As a friend of mine just mentioned, "No competitors usually means no market for the product." So, finding one after all this time gives me hope. Fine, you see it this way. I think there is more than plenty of room on the market for both products. Having used...

Re: FormalAddress

Steve. There is an excellent tool for Windows called CopyContact that parses address information and imports it into Outlook, Lotus Notes, Excel or MS Dynamics CRM. It is written by an Austrian company but also supports American, British and Australian address formats. I have used it for more than a...

Re: Take Control of Scrivener 2 - New e-Book Now Available

Hi Keith. There seems to be something wrong with Esellerate: I tried twice to buy the ebook and pay via Paypal. After confirming the Paypal transaction I was back in Esellerate on the Order Confirmation page - which was empty. On the first attempt I didn't realize that and closed the page. Wondering...

Re: Welcome aboard Jennifer!

Welcome aboard, Jennifer.

Please don't beat me for asking: Does your name mean, you're female?

Just asking because there once was a pretty girl (ok, "pretty" was just my imagination) named Amber who turned out to be a guy from Portland :-)

Yes, and I jumped right at it :-)))

But seriously: I see your point about YAO but that option would be a welcome to me. Maybe in Scrivener 2.5.

Bye, Franz
