Re: PDF Pen for iPad

Hi Mike

I cant find a split option in Preview, but maybe that's because I'm still using P. pardus rather than P. leo?

cheers

Re: Vellum for Mac (previously "TheBoard") - feedback wanted

Hi Mark Very informative looking at your three paragraph structures - I would also be leaning towards the Alt Structure 1 for my own writing. Interestingly all three end up, it seems to me, with an emphatic point located at the very end, which seems a typical pattern of narrative mode (which I don't...

Re: Vellum for Mac (previously "TheBoard") - feedback wanted

Hi Mark Similarly, I've found it much easier to teach paragraph structure (to Indian biology postgrads) using a visual mapping approach, eg see an old version of my course here: http://communication.ncbs.res.in/ScienceWriting2/Set_A/firstpage.html The visual approach gets around the problem of "...

Re: Scrivener for iOS - What Would You Want? [PLEASE READ FIRST]

The scrivener team always does such a great job with whatever project they take on, it's inevitable that any iOS product they deliver will overdeliver on my simple wish list.

Re: Vellum for Mac (previously "TheBoard") - feedback wanted

Hi Keith Vellum is a great name, and it's good to hear you will be doing some more development of the app. I used it yesterday to think up a flowline for a science paper I'm writing. It was very useful overall for the task, and particularly so now that I could drag in images of graphs etc that I had...

Re: NOOOOOOO! Why did I do that?!?!

Commiserations as well, I know that feeling of things going from bad to worse all too well. I have shifted to using both a HD backup (well cloning actually, once a week) and a cloud backup (instantaneous). I got myself a 30GB cloud account with SugarSync and have been very happy with its customisabi...

Re: Writers App Promotion-Codes

Many thanks!

I used:

EJWTJY7XKJYM

Looks like a very well thought out app. My only gripe is that the font is too small for my eyes.

Re: Play audio/video files for typing from dictation.

While waiting you might want to look at Express Scribe, free for both Windows and Mac. Allows variable playback, systemwide key mapping and a
Miniwindow. Almost like having the functionality in Scrivener.

For Researchers: Docear, SciPlore's successor

Personally I never got into SciPlore, open source software that added lots of researcher-friendly features to the mindmapping approach, but its soon-to-be released successor, Docear sounds interesting. According to its own literature, it will allow: 1. Finding new literature (searching and exploring...

Re: A developer's impressions on Scrivener

I'm definitely not a developer, but a life in science has caused me to have very lowered expectations of things turning out as hoped. So it was quite easy to cool my heels and NOT recommend (as yet) Scrivener to all and sundry at my research institute (where Im the "communication guy", and...

Re: Interview-Structure?

Ive been doing a few interview transcriptions of late, and yeah is it ever tedious!! When I put them online the interviewer's questions are in italics (and no mention of their name, except in the introduction) and the answers are in regular font (again with no name except at start). So the only form...

Re: Today's Scrivener newsletter & Tinderbox

For someone who wants to learn how to survive the shallow end of Tinderbox first, would Eastgate's related offering, Twig, serve as a good beginner's course?

Re: No 1

Stephen Donaldson and Tim Winton are two of my literary heroes. I will never be able to write like either of them, but if I can write even half as well I'll be happy. Yes Im a big fan of Tim Winton, too. And likewise I can barely aspire to write even a single sentence as compelling as his. Dirt Mus...

Yep, that's correct. Brilliant film-maker though Aronofsky, I loved The Wrestler.
