Re: help for tracking and compiling theme in chronological journal

almost all of the text I want to enter is handwritten in individual journals, notebooks, or stapled sheets of looseleaf that are currently scattered in a number of boxes, bags, and other assorted containers. Other text is found in emails and what was salvaged from a failed journaling application ex...

I want to be able to track a couple of themes or topics while I enter notes from several years of travel and personal journals in a Scrivener project.

Re: Heirarchical Index Card View in Binder

That's sort of what I'm talking about, but, what I'd want is this displayed in the binder , so I could edit the documents in question in the editor while selecting them in the binder and creating Scrivenings. I know this is not exactly what you want, but if you click in the toolbar on this icon htt...

Re: Help to put in a "bookmark"??

Use whatever method you prefer to deselect the comment and try again. Thanks, this worked. I deselected the comment by clicking outside the comment in the Comment Pane. Is there another way to deselect the comment? I tried clicking on another Inpsector tab, but the comment was still selected when I...

Re: Help to put in a "bookmark"??

I use inspector comments for this. A simple, dated "start here" works. Set up a Scrivening in the editor that contains the document in question. Put your insertion point anywhere inside the editor. Now show the comments pane in the inspector. Click on the "start here" comment in...

Re: New writing font for monospace lovers...

The ONLY fonts I've found that work to this very narrow specification are the Courier Prime family. Other fonts that conform to the Screenwriting requirement of 12-point 10-pitch mono are: Courier Final Draft (from Final Draft) Courier MM Screenwriter (from Movie Magic Screenwriter) Courier Screenp...

Re: Adding TinderBox for Keeping Track of Things? Not really! Something else?

I use Scrivener occasionally for keeping track of things: not quite "project management" but simply to have documents (PDF, MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and emails) at hand for writing occasional reports, such as an annual chairman's letter to shareholders or for following the construction...

Re: in life, you want to know what is helpful, and what is more helpful than other things

Both are necessary. Here are best practices: • Read the overview, then read the features. • Download the app and try it for the free trial period. • Explore the User Guide, which is an interactive Scrivener Project. • Really try to write something with Scrivener, so you get a sense of how it fits to...

Do I need to start a complete "Alternative Novel" in the Binder? Any guidance or suggestions greatly appreciated. Starting a second version in the Binder probably will work best. You start a new folder called something like "Alt Plot," and put duplicates of all your chapters int...

Re: Scrivener used by Rian Johnson to write Star Wars: The Last Jedi

My point was not about the quality of the movie.

I was happy for L&L that the writer/director of the biggest movie this year gave a shout-out to Scrivener in a room full of professional Screenwriters.

Scrivener used by Rian Johnson to write Star Wars: The Last Jedi

I was at a WGA screening of Star Wars: The Last Jedi today (Dec.17) and writer/director Rian Johnson did a Q & A afterwards. One question was about how as a writer Rian had chosen to make a particular controversial plot decision. They asked if he developed the idea, or if it was a directive from...
