Okay, some specifics: Export settings: http://www.semigreenpenny.com/img/forums/06236817-export_settings.png All elements of the draft were included, including groups. This was done by clicking "Include All". I manually de-selected the groups later, but the produced RTF still had a fault. ...

Yes, definitely use "Backup to..." ("Save Copy As..." in most other programs) before making any big structural changes and doing a lot of splitting and merging. There is no undo for most of that, and merging can be destructive to Snapshots. You retain the primary document's Snaps...

Fair enough! I had a feeling that Apple's HTML exporter was pretty weak. I never cared for the actual HTML it produces, either. I am a little suprised that nobody has written a flexible HTML engine that Cocoa devs could use. It seems to be something a lot of writing/note taking apps do, and remain c...

Saving : high : Footnote and Annotation observations

The way footnotes and annotations export seems a bit fickle. Originally I tried it in Mellel, but I do not think it is specific to Mellel, as Pages and Neooffice do the same thing. They show the footnote like this: [1] And then at the very bottom of the document (as if it were an endnote): [1] This ...

Saving : minor : Produced RTF does not import into Mellel

I tried to export the tutorial to an RTF and import it into Mellel with no success. Mellel gave an error: "Unexpected non-hex character". It imported the Word format document just fine, but did not seem to handle the footnote/annotation bit the way you would expect (I opened another thread...

HTML exporter

I know you have this in here as a nice extra, and not really a fully featured web page maker, but I do believe there is some middle ground that could make it a bit more useful. Let me know if this is something you are interested in expanding a bit, and I'll write down some ideas. HTML export is some...

Full expansion of notes in Inspector

Pretty minor: This is relevant only to the Inspector HUD which appears in Full Screen mode. In the standard Inspector, the notes field can be expanded all the way so that it takes up the entire sidebar. In Full screen, at least three lines of keywords are always visible at the bottom.

Basically, we've got two different "notes" philosophies between us. I am of the camp that uses notes rather heavily, and as a direct editing aid. Scanning through a document that has been annotated and is ready for rewritting, I can easily see all of my original concerns, and the areas the...

Vickie, something you can try. Think of Snapshots as your analog to saving. When you open up a part of your draft for editing, and you know you are going to be making some big changes, or just want to make sure you can always revert back to the way things were, simply press Cmd-5 and then start edit...

That makes a lot more sense, having the 'X' appear in the split header and leaving the split functions stationary at the top. I still think the foot is more relevant to splitting (and that makes me want to say the head is more relevant to spitting ), but honestly that is a pretty minor thing. I doub...

But damn good beers compared to the domestic yellow water we get served, here. :)

Oh, and yes -- around $30 is best for sure. Somebody put it eloquently, anything under $35 can sneak beneath the Spousal Radar. Anything near and over $40: Questions and accusations begin!

Thanks, but I am still not getting my idea across: basically, I want to associate comments with specific items in the text, be it sections, paragraphs, or words. The idea behind Scrivener's annotations is that the placement of the annotation becomes the marker. In your mock-up you have a word selec...

I think either the header or foot is a natural place to put these buttons. And between those two, I actually think the footer would be more appropriate as the header is all about navigation and document selection (true, renaming too, but that is gravy). While the footer is all about the document and...

Perhaps it is a gamma setting thing? I have mine set to the old Mac default 1.8, if you have yours set to 2.2, the default might be more obvious.
