Re: Clipboard feature?

I was all set to highly recommend IClip , but it turns out that it has been abandoned due to the (former) developer's schedule. I know that it works for Tiger and Leopard; I'm uncertain if it works on Snow Leopard. At the MacUpdate link above, there is a link to a site where iClip is still available...

Re: Splintering of our attention

The hardest part about setting up fences around my time seems to be enforcement. And it also seems to be the most important part. This can not be understated. The key that I have found to addressing this problem is open communication and consistency. Open can be as obvious as a sign posted in an en...

Re: Is there a word processor that handles files like scrivener?

There's a bunch of little apps like xPad. One you might find useful is myNotes. You might also look into VoodooPad Lite.

Re: Splintering of our attention

I do some work for a law firm. One of challenges of working on-site is that while I'm working on very-important-must-be-done Project A, I'm asked to do this, that, this other thing, Projects B through L, oh, and what kind of progress am I making on Project A? After endless attempts to manage, I fina...

Re: Poll: Product activation in the garden of good and evil

I wouldn't mind, except that I have to launch Scrivener twice for it to actually launch. That gets really tiring. Nice product, but I'd love to be able to launch and write, not launch, click the 'eSellerate failed...' button and then launch again.

Re: Love Scrivener, hate Word. Need a better workflow

I keep reading your work process and I'm having trouble picturing the workflow you're describing. The first thing I would probably do is to save the publisher .doc (document) as a .dot (template). I don't know that doing so is necessary. I remember having to work with styles across multiple document...

Re: OpenOffice

OpenOffice sucks rocks. (Word for Mac ain't that great either.) I think Microsoft funds development of OpenOffice just so that people will run from it screaming for Word to rescue them.

I've played with the other word processors, and I keep returning to Word for the heavy lifting.

Re: Task managers and other constricts...

I dumped OmniFocus in favor of TaskPaper. I don't know why, but OF just wasn't ... the GTD experience I was looking for. I am a big fan of TaskPaper, however, and recommend it highly. No fluff, just simple, easy project list management.

Re: 1Password question

I love using 1Password. I can create passwords like Rdz8kafv3iQB, unique for each login, without having to remember the password, and without having to type the password in while in public. Beautiful.

What's on one side of the equal sign has to equal what's on the other side of the equal sign.

Oops. Earlier in the conversation, when we were working with keeping the color, I was experimenting with Tex-Edit Plus as well TextEdit. In Tex-Edit Plus, the fonts are listed in the Font menu (and the "Show Fonts" option is there as well), and I was able to simply select the text and chan...
