can't undelete deleted notes

I have a problem I don't want to reproduce :-( I selected two notes, right-clicked and chose "merge", then (I think) hit enter. I now had a note on top of those two that just said "New note" -- so I hit delete to get rid of it, and all three notes vanished and could not be restor...

Re: Importing from opml/mindmap

Greg, since you use markdown, have you seen this freeplane addon to export mindmaps to markdown directly? https://github.com/py/mm2markdown

Re: Importing from opml/mindmap

OK. Here is a crude but broadly effective workaround, tested at least on my mac (Windows machine not on the road with me) To get Freeplane maps to work in Scrivener you need two things -- a groovy script within Freeplane, and a text editor. Here's the groovy script leaves=c.find{ it.isLeaf()==true} ...

Re: Importing from opml/mindmap

Thanks, Jennifer. That may be the answer I am hoping for. I might combine it with the answer above -- since I have already got a script which identifies all of the "leaf" nodes in Freeplane and copies their text into a note, which doesn't work -- so that it put on some markup the Scrivener...

Re: Importing from opml/mindmap

you can address the real issue by going into Tools > Options and in the Import/Export tab, choosing to import the OPML notes into "Main Text (with Synopsis)". On Mac this is under Scrivener > Preferences. I'm sorry, but this simply does not work on Windows. I have converted all the leaf n...

Re: Importing from opml/mindmap

Sorry. On closer examination the problem is that the text comes in as *titles* not synopses, and it is these that don't wrap on Windows. I can't get my head round the distinction between "title" and "synopsis" easily because it's just one layer of management more than I need, if ...

Importing from opml/mindmap

I have a problem which is acute on Windows and irritating n the Mac version of Scrivener. I make notes for long magazine articles in a mindmap because this allows the right balance between flexibility and structure. When I import the results into Scrivener, via OPML, all of the text fields end up as...

Re: how to get opml notes to import?

Further investigation shows this was a problem with Freeplane. I had been converting my map so that the leaf nodes had their text copied into notes, using a script, since there were nots of them. Turned out that the obvious command to do this has been deprecated in the API and no longer works - the ...

how to get opml notes to import?

I have been trying for an hour to import a mindmap from freeplane 1.3.6 to Scrivener 1.61. I want the headings to appear as headings, and the notes to appear as text under those headings. I just can't figure out how to do this. I have tried (I think) every single option in in the mm/opml dialogue an...

"Find previous" finds next

This is really simple to reproduce. I have a set of three linked notes. I press Ctrl-F, type in something common and press the "find next" button - with repeated presses the cursor jumps forward through the occurrences of the target and then wraps round to the first one. So now I click on ...

working with a tablet; synching

It appears from David Hewson's book that there are all sorts of clever ways to keep a scrivener project synched with an external repository in the Mac version. In particular, it seems that if you keep your project on dropbox or something similar, the individual rtf/text files can be edited on a tabl...

Re: Collaboration?

comments work very well in the latest (4.whatever) versions of Libre Office. There doesn't seem to be anything complicated about them now -- insert where you like, using insert->comment, or ctrl-alt-c and then they will show up for your collaborator. It's not as good as the live, real-time collabora...

cursor movement enhancement request

I love Scrivener for some forms of writing, and have already produced a radio script and a long magazine article with the Windows beta versions. I have also pre-ordered the full version. But there is one missing feature which keeps me from using it for almost everything: the limited text editing fac...

Move and delete by sentence?

Are there any keystrokes or even mouse clicks which will let us use sentences as their unit of selection? Very often I want to delete to the beginning of a sentence that needs restarting, or delete to the end of one that has gone wrong. I have set up controls to do this in openoffice, and an very re...
