There must be some way to do this. With Path Finder you can manually set the time and date for both modification and creation date.

Well, when using Gmail to store .scriv projects, you would want to zip them up first. I tried using Google Docs, and it is an okay way of doing things. What I did was export a range of RTF documents out of the Binder, and then uploaded them in bulk using the email function that lets you add document...

Oh, nothing mysterious. I've just been involved with the betas for a long time.

I'm assuming your mobile is a PC, because otherwise, why not just install Scrivener on the laptop? The licence allows for such a thing.

I posted some thoughts on what this could look like from the GUI side in this thread . All of this is really high speculation. Such a massive over-haul of the current system would would be something entertained a year or two from now. While there is no doubt that this would be an ideal way of convey...

Yes, it can still be searched for using the quick search toolbar. The HUD is just a central collection of keywords. Removing a keyword from the hub is can be useful if it is not something that would be of use to many documents.

For my purposes, I am quite content with the current system as it is. LaTeX works just fine for me, and I have yet to have need both RTF/DOC + footnotes, so the MMD → RTF is fine. The current MMD system distributed with Scrivener has two footnote streams (I mistakenly classed it as a type of a...

All I want is to do all my writing in scrivener and be able to choose h1-h6, strong/bold, emphasis/italic, bullets, footnotes etc. and then to be able to export to word or another program For simple h1-6, strong, emphasis, and so on -- MMD → XHTML is really the route you want to go. The HTML ...

So you are basically writing in RTF so that you can use footnotes. And then for another purpose, duplicating the Draft, converting it to MMD, and then exporting? Hmm, I guess in that case I would advise precision when using the RTF tools. Treat them like structural tools and you should not run into ...

Tim, I mentioned very briefly a concept which revolves around the tag+collection philosophy that you are bringing up, but did not explain it in detail. Scrivener does in fact have something quite similar to a smart folder, the primary difference is that it is not live. You cannot reveal its contents...

I am not positive about this, but I am pretty sure that the paperback counter is fairly close to a manuscript estimate, too. Yes it is not 100% accurate (and nothing put a page layout program could be), but it should give you a ballpark for your assignments. Eventually you will get an intuitive feel...

Right, there is a bit of a philosophy difference. With RTF, it doesn't matter what is bold or italic because it does not really mean anything. It just looks like as if means something. With MMD, everything actually means something. An emphasised punctuation mark and space does not mean anything, so ...

This one will exclude capitalised words, however it includes 'I'. I have to run off and do other things, so I cannot refine it further, but it should get you started:
