Re: iphone wiki with search & replace?

you might try TrunkNotes http://www.appsonthemove.com and have it sync with Dropbox. It is quite a capable iOS Wiki and will let you with a proper Texteditor when on your Mac or PC since it uses standard markdown with some special markups, including but not limited to search and replace. A proper OS...

Re: Mac software for handwriting recognition?

As I said I am not familiar with OCRing handwritten text so I cannot comment on this particular issue. But it is my understanding that OCRing printed text works precisely like that, i.e. language-aware, in Acrobat (the full version) and ABBYY. I haven't done any systematic tests to verify this becau...

Re: Mac software for handwriting recognition?

Multi-lingual OCR, basically? I wouldn't think that language would be necessary or useful for OCR, as this is just the recognition of characters and the translation of them from pictures into symbols. How those characters are strung together into words and in what language should be completely irre...

Re: Image editor for an Adobe phobe?

Keep in mind that non-destructive editing is of particular importance for photos, it also reduces the space requirements if you play with different versions. Graphic Converter and Pixelmator do not have this, Aperture and Lightroom and some others do.

Re: Image editor for an Adobe phobe?

Aperture used to compete head to head with Lightroom and the like, I believe at the time of the introduction around 450€. The price was reduced several times, the most recent cut being when it was moved to the App Store. Although I also have Lightroom I happen to prefer Aperture. It has solid non-de...

Re: Image editor for an Adobe phobe?

I second the recommendation for Aperture, Graphic Converter and Acorn, all of which I have been using for years. I do have licenses for Lightzone, Lightroom, Pixelmator and many other but these days I am using Aperture most often. It costs 63 Euros in the App Store and has quite decent picture editi...

Re: Timeline Software for Windows

What about cobbling something together yourself? The SIMILE timeline http://www.simile-widgets.org/timeline/ is pretty impressive, platform independent and maybe it does what you want out of the box already? Play around with it, it is not a static image but interactive which is easy to miss.

Re: Timeline Software for Windows

I'm looking for such a software for ages now and have not found one yet. Perhaps we could try to gather all people interested in such and convince either some open source programmers or a software firm to produce what we want/need? Would it not also make sense to think about switching to the Mac? H...

Re: Dropbox and Your Copyright

I did not say it was your misconception but nevertheless a common one. The sentence I singled out, taken in isolation, is often misused to offload the responsibility for creating a service that stores unencrypted information in the cloud to US legislation which is wrong, at least in its current stat...

Re: Dropbox and Your Copyright

Another point is that they need to have access to the files to cover themselves under US law. I strongly believe that this is a common misconception but nevertheless a misconception. *If* a service provider has access to the contents of the files they are obliged to make them available to the autho...

Re: bibliography manager for ipad

Both Papers and Sente have fully fledged iPad apps but I have no personal experience with either and do not know if importing requires the equivalent program on the Mac as well or if you could export a common format from Bookends and import that into Sente or Papers on the iPad. That said, I am eyei...

Re: Papers 2 available

I admit being addicted to Reference Managers, holding licenses for almost all of them :oops: . Sente is not very good at advertising their product but it is almost infinitely configurable. They also have a synching solution up that has worked flawlessly for the last months and I am eyeing it careful...

Papers 2 available

For the academics amongst us there is Papers version 2 out now. It is one of the top reference managment programs on the Mac and finally supports manuscript formatting. So if you are on the lookout for an alternative to Endnote and the like have a look at http://www.mekentosj.com/papers/

Re: Launchbar and an urgent request.

Martin

at the risk of stating the obvious: You did configure the hotkey for instant send (double fn or the like) in the Launchbar prefs under the "shortcuts" tab?
