Re: Corkboard 2.0

I get the "no" part. That's a shame. FWIW, I wasn't suggesting it would be easy. I was saying that Amber was making it way too complicated as a concept. I was trying to remove layers of complexity. Please don't cast me as ungrateful. I appreciate all your hard work on Scrivener. I simply s...

Re: Corkboard 2.0

I think, if something like this were implemented, it would have to be another view entirely I think that would be fine, if that's what it takes to get KB to do it. It doesn't have to be a deep and complex problem. Just do it like ThreeByFive's "Free Form" mode: -cards added are listed chr...

Re: Corkboard 2.0

how would the position of the cards relate to the outline? If you could randomly place the index cards, their sequence would be unclear. I would be perfectly happy if there were a Corkboard view that had no relationship to the outline, except in which cards are displayed. Reordering the outline wou...

Re: Corkboard 2.0

Pretty sure coloured cards are already available. Can't remember the menu item without my mac, but I know all my cards are different colours at the moment. Sorry I wasn't more clear. In the old Three By Five, there was much more control and customization in coloring cards. I figured KB would unders...

Corkboard 2.0

Since you're entertaining the notion of timelines, fishbones and all other manner of extra hoopdedoodle for Scrivener, allow me to return your attention to your most excellent Corkboard. Long ago, you mentioned your interest in creating something akin to Final Draft's old program Three By Five, aka ...

Hopefully..

I hope when you implement AppleScript, you allow for this kind of functionality. Looping through all the index cards in a selection and performing an operation on each of them is exactly the kind of thing for which we could be writing our own Apple Scripts.

Append

As for appending the synopsis - click, cmd-A, cmd-C, click, cmd-V! :) Kind of a headache when I've brainstormed 30+ cards, and now I want to copy the synopsis text into the documents. This is exactly the kind of thing computers are great at. Highlight 30 cards, pull down a menu that says "Appe...

Split Index card

I'd like to be able to split an index card synopsis into separate cards just like document text can be split. It would be very helpful when I'm brainstorming in the corkboard.

Thanks for considering.

Synopsis

Yes, I knew the workarounds, but I find they interrupt the creative flow. I won't expect any changes, but feel free to surprise me. :wink:

Custom Binder Icons

I dimply recall this coming up previously, but I bumped my head on it today, so... Would love to make my own binder icons, pop them into a designated folder, and be able to assign them in the binder via a context menu. I'd settle for a single icon state, if it's too much work to give us access to th...

Auto Generate Synopsis

Would very much appreciate: -Deactivate "Auto-generate synopsis" button if document is blank, and synopsis contains text. This would eliminate accidental deletions of synopsis text. -Add function to append synopsis to document text (start or ending of document) Maybe option-click on the au...

page numbers

Sorry if my choice of words was imprecise. I'm asking for page numbers on the pages, as in a screenplay.

(But Insert Page Break is more important, IMHO.)

Exciting news

First of all, THANK YOU! Anything that makes the FD/Scrivener process smoother is greatly appreciated. PAGE VIEW looks very good. If we can't have (or even ask for) Character Names and Dialogue to be kept on the same page, would you be so kind as to add "Insert Page Break" so we can manual...

ironic deals with direct opposition to expectation. Yet here's a guy who EXPECTS to die in a plane crash, then gets on a plane for the first time and dies in a plane crash, just like he thought he would . It's not just wrong, it's elaborately wrong *Yes, I actually got dizzy thinking about it You m...
