Two Help menus

Scriv 1.52 has two Help menus when running under Snow Leopard. It looks like you might be instantiating one yourself, in addition to the system provided one.

Re: The status of the next update and 2.0

I'm actually glad to hear that it will be a paid upgrade. Not that I like to spend money, not at all, but it gives some peace of mind that L&L isn't a charity and has a plan to stay in business. :)

Re: Stupid comment of the day (hello Mr Jobs)

I'm a reader, and a writer. But I'm also a shareholder and as such can't argue with Jobs' response. The future is clear. "The Emperor has no clothes!"

Thanks for the tip. I sure do miss Webstractor. I have been using Yojimbo as a substitute.

It's interesting, but the track record of the developer gives me pause. Scrial Consistency is also their product, and a wonderfully unique and useful "to do" application, but it has yet to appear in Universal Binary form and support emails go completely unanswered. It's just just me, a lit...

Pure voodoo. Get back to work and stop fiddling with "preventative" measures. When (and if) you have a problem, address it.

I recommend sacrificing a chicken before installing a software update. It's much more effective than the other voodoo described here and in the linked "references."

A good friend of mine has a Cube running Tiger. I have a Mini running Tiger. There is a big speed difference; I don't know how he can stand to work all day on the Cube. He says he's used to it, but it would drive me crazy. The larger hard disk on a Mini is a plus, too.

For me, the best part of VooDoo Pad is the "Pro" version -- if you're interested in information processing, but are scared by Tinderbox, the VP Pro is an inexpensive way to experiment with a system that provides several "hooks" into your collection of ideas and thoughts.

I'm still using Group Organizer, from the SOHO Notes folks, but I'm gritting my teeth and cursing every time I have to launch it. It's painful that the company didn't provide a suitable upgrade path for customers. I'm slowly weaning myself from Webstractor, too, which seems to have been abandoned. Y...

Repeated elements in web sites

When I add a website to Scrivener, I often find that the built-in display repeats some elements of the page. Here's a reproducible example: Visit <http://www.hackszine.com/blog/archive/2007/03/bluetooth_proximity_detection.html> and notice that there's one banner at at the top. Add this URL to Scriv...

Try TinyBooks. It's not very pretty, but it is very usable, fast, and comes with great support from the author.

I think you're crazy to raise the price by $5.

You should raise it by $25.

Those of you who are speculating about reasons for Scriv not to win an award should review the Design Awards judging criteria, and then see how Scriv compares to the two winners in the UE category in regards to the criteria. http://developer.apple.com/wwdc/ada/rules.html Don't get me wrong, I like S...
