Re: Creating PDF for Ingram Spark

From memory, there's a Quartz Filter that lets you print to this format. I'll check when I get home after work.

Otherwise, maybe an Adobe CC subscription will lower the barrier of entry for you.

FWIW, I bake my PDFs with PrinceXML which supports a very wide range of PDF profiles.

Re: Technical Book template

Not out of the box, but I helped a fellow writer develop one for his book. Was quite a process as his needs were very prescriptive. I'm a technical writer in my day job -- PM me if you need help :)

Look up David Sparks (MacSparky). All his early field guides were created in Scrivener

Re: "Series Bible" in a different project than the novels in a series?

I maintain my series bible -- well, it's more like a big world-building project -- in a separate location completely. However, when I write individual stories, I'll take a snapshot of pertinent information and pull it in the story's scrivener project as a read-only PDF. That way I can reference it b...

Re: ios 11 support of "files app"

Chris: the reason I don't use zip files is the same reason I don't use a binary file. There are no frameworks on macOS or iOS (I don't know about Windows) that allow you to read individual files from inside a zip file. So to work with zip files, I'd have to have Scrivener unzip the entire project p...

Re: Who maps their fictional world (geographically speaking) ?

Wow, do I ever. I love creating maps for my fantasy world and have used everything from Fractal Mapper to Photoshop/Illustrator to Inkscape/GIMP. Using Snapple has me intrigued, never thought of that. Today I mostly use Pixelmator and a cheap but awesome Wacom-clone I bought from China. Awesome way ...

Re: What's Your Workflow For Your Wordpress Blog?

Timely post! After my review of Ulysses, I've been a little unsettled with my own blogging practices. My blog readership is modest (500 reads per week according to Google) but growing as I invest more time into it. Currently I use Markdown and a static-site generator and while I automate most of the...

Re: Another app (Ulysses) moves to a subscription based model

I finally published my review of Ulysses on my blog. I've had some great responses but my goodness, once it hit social media there's a lot of bitterness directed toward Ulysses for the business model switch. I almost regret posting it! I was trying to review it on its merits and compare it to the w...

Re: Another app (Ulysses) moves to a subscription based model

Come again? Try to locate where on your file system Ulysses stores your files and you'll know what I mean. I found them buried in ~/Library in a confusing mass after I got creative with searching in Finder and grep on the Command Line. Compare that to the approach highlighted in the iA article I li...

Re: Another app (Ulysses) moves to a subscription based model

17 Aug. blog post from iA Writer regarding subscriptions: https://ia.net/writer/blog/ia-writer-5-from-raw-to-cooked-to-sushi/ Thanks schrugged. I enjoyed this article.
