Re: MS Courier

Rayz, Evernote's thing is more a form of deluxe, server-side OCR than live handwriting recognition; I'm assuming that it's the result of lots of parallel processing in the cloud, so I guess it'd be harder to pull off as you were writing on a device. On a related note, has anyone tried the Dragon dic...

Re: keystroke sound

I just bought one, simply because Amber uses it. Sigh.

Re: Actually in need of a pair of ears... or eyes. ...or four.

Categorise things a bit more rigorously in your folder structure? Search? And use keywords, which you can browse in a floating "heads-up display"?

Re: Scrivener Ap goes off

Did you install it properly? It sounds like you dragged the application from the Scrivener disk image into the Dock, and then ejected the disk image, which would make the Scrivener icon in the Dock unable to launch the application itself. If that's what you did, you should open the "Scrivener.d...

Re: Is it possible to import labels from another project?

Oh, I apologise for not making myself clearer in my earlier post -- by mentioning how inefficient it is to save a huge project as a template, I was implying that it probably wasn't a good idea to do so. :) You can trash the stripped down project. Did you also empty the trash in Scrivener's binder be...

Re: Is it possible to import labels from another project?

At what stage does Scrivener crash during this template saving manoeuvre? Is it by any chance just freezing for an inordinate time, rather than completely crashing? Note that "Save As Template" copies *the entire project* you're working on into another location, which involves a much bigge...

Re: Custom Text scale

Twinkerzzz, just curious: are you avoiding making any changes to the actual text size for the "obvious" reason that you print directly from Scrivener a lot? Because if you're not printing from Scrivener, I don't see why changing the font size would be a problem. Since the size of the font ...

Re: list of Styles in a submenu somewhere

As discussed further upthread, the Mac's native style system is much, much worse than Microsoft Word's. I don't think you can change the order of styles as they appear, or even rename them. To get to them, follow Greg's lead -- you have to go to "Other..." and then select the "Favorit...

Re: Request to Generate Advanced Indexing

Michael, I'm not sure what you mean by drawing a contrast between "writers" and writers. Keith just told you that he includes academics in his definitions of "writers of long texts". So if by "writers" you mean people like novelists, that's possibly a core target, but t...

Re: Losing Footnote Text in Multi-Markdown to LaTeX Export

From what I understand, xsltproc is a command line tool that ships with OS X, so what Amber means is that upgrading to Snow Leopard has made the copy of MultiMarkDown that lives inside Scrivener not work with footnotes. I had exactly the same problem, but after installing the latest version of the M...

Re: scrivener on an ultraportable (CULV)

(All this debate on the evils of Hackintoshing aside, I think Keith should feel free to delete this thread if he feels weird hosting a forum where people are talking about breaking Apple's EULA in order to use Scrivener on unsupported hardware. It does place him in a weird position as a paid up ADC ...

Re: Request to Generate Advanced Indexing

Michael, in case you aren't joking: Scrivener is a writing application, and not something to be used for the production of actual laid-out pages. Given that you need to export Scrivener projects in order to get them into "real" pages in the first place, I can't see how indexing within Scri...

Re: scrivener on an ultraportable (CULV)

Druid, I agree that these practices aren't um, totally legal, but while the Hackintosh netbook crowd do indeed break OS X's software EULA (and various aspects of software EULAs have been challenged in numerous countries, I understand), there is a clear understanding in the "Hackintosh"-cen...
