Re: Project Templates (new assistant)

I'd suggest a "Business" category.
Reports, White Papers, Business Plans, Performance reviews -- all things that can be improved with Scrivener.

Re: Duplicate w/o text?

KB wrote:Nope, it's a minor bug - I've just fixed this for 1.2, so that it forces a save if necessary before duplicating - until then, just make sure you hit cmd-S before duplicating a file you have just created/edited.


That explains why it went away, too.

Many Thanks!

Looks like it's a corrupt file. Thanks Marcus.

Re: Duplicate w/o text?

I'm not seeing this behaviour in the 1.12 beta Another symptom: When I duplicate the one-line document, its icon has lines on it showing that it contains text. If I drag it in the binder, it updates as a blank icon. Does 1.12b do that? The 1.12 beta has been rock-stable for me so far - might be wor...

Duplicate w/o text?

Is this a bug or a feature? I created a document in v1.11, and typed a single line in the main window (not in Synopsis), to be used as a section heading. I clicked on the icon in the binder and changed the label. Then I duplicated using Cmd-D, and the copy had no text in its main window . It's repea...

Re: Corkboard 2.0

No, no and no. Sorry, but it's not gonna happen. Not this side of 2015, anyway. ...take Scrivener for what it is... Outlandish additions like this make my head ache... So: no. And no again. Did I say "no"? I meant to say "no". ...and all of the above intended in the best possibl...

Re: Corkboard 2.0

I'm a tad curious as to why folk are so keen to have all this built into Scrivener. There seem to be a number of good apps out there that can do the same thing, so I fail to see why this really needs adding to Scriv. Having another app do the same thing is not the same as having a fluid index card ...

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.
