Re: Scapple Beta - New Users Please Read

Grand is Scapple. It's proving really useful for rewriting, having mapped and linked the hundred-odd key points of a whole narrative into it. Healthier than the outliner for locating points that should/could change, and how changes fit into the grand scheme. In fact, great to get a visual overview o...

Re: Placeholder tags and chapter numbering

Well, I'd never changed the compile group selection. I've been switching on and off what I wanted in the full list. Now, not only is my chapter correctly numbered but the project target word-count shows the total for the MS too. This is all good. I'm not surprised it's already been thought through, ...

Placeholder tags and chapter numbering

I have a couple of questions regarding chapter numbering at compile time using Placeholder Tags. My binder looks like this: - Manuscript - Epigraph - Chapter 1 - Scene 1 - Scene 2 - Chapter 2 - Scene 1 - Scene 2 And so on. In compile I've been using <$n> to number the chapter level elements (which a...

Re: Hold Cmd+w to close (Chrome style)

Keyboard Maestro looks interesting, but it's a small system utility that's about the same price as Scrivener itself.*

I re-mapped Cmd+w to Scrivener's 'Send to Trash' in System Preferences. A cludge, but it saves on swearing.


(*Scrivener, I should say, is a bargain.)

Re: Hold Cmd+w to close (Chrome style)

Ah, Chrome's behaviour is a one-off, I realise. But it seems sensible to me. Anyway, I respect the design decision. Thank you for your speedy and considered response as ever. (As for .webarchive, there are murmurs elsewhere about a standard here. Maybe time will tell on this one.) Thanks again, Mark.

Hold Cmd+w to close (Chrome style)

A thousand years (okay, twelve is more likely) of Mac OS muscle-memory has me frequently using Cmd+w to put an item within Scrivener into the bin. I ought to be doing the (equally Mac-like) Cmd+Backspace as if I'm trashing a Finder Item. I know that. I just can't help repeatedly malfunctioning. So, ...

Re: Numbering in the outliner.

Ah, on the list. This is good.

You prompted me to do a 'Check for updates.' Looking forward to 2.2. And Hats doffed for all the graft. I've been helping Matt Tobin with Aeon Timeline and I understand there's a lot to it.

Numbering in the outliner.

I'm deep into a project and have one, little request that would make things so much easier now my project file has expanded. Can we have numbering in the outliner? Now, I wouldn't have requested this without searching, would I? It has been requested before and Keith said then, "This would be aw...

Ok. Thanks for the swift reply.

If I get a minute I'll see about an Apple bug report.

Scrivener's internal numbering

Hello, Happy Scrivener here. I was posting a little oddity in the Bug hunt, so I thought I'd mention a couple of non-buggy observations. This one is probably only annoying me, so feel free to note it and move on if you differ. I've been saving Omnigraffle documents in my Binder. (A non-natively supp...

Font size zooming and PDF (Split pane)

Hello, I'm living in Scrivener (and it's a good place to reside) and I've been using it long enough to spot a few oddities. Tried searching for this one, but couldn't spot any duplicates. I've found an odd behaviour where Cmd + or Cmd - will and won't increase and decrease the font size of a selecti...

Re: Comments & Footnotes inspector and floating panel

Answering my own question: The inspector panel will only upset the layout of two vertical panes if it is pulled-out wide enough to do so. Resetting it to being narrow means only the right-pane is resized when the inspector is opened. On closing the arrangement returns to the way it was before. It's ...

Comments & Footnotes inspector and floating panel

I've been using the comment tool for a lot of quick notes as I plough through the planning stages of my current project. All good: they're just what I need. Clicking on a comment in full-screen mode (which I don't often use) pops-up the Comments & Footnotes floating Quick Reference panel, but in...
