Instant keyword search with keywords HUD

Hi, Keith, Ioa, Over the weekend I was first to intensively use keywords and the keywords HUD, and there was an action that came to be natural (and thus desirable), but as far as I can tell, not possible in Scrivener. I felt like wanting to use the HUD for instant keyword search as well: as I would ...

Re: Ideas wanted for a talk I'm giving

Definitely speak on keywords and (custom) metadata.

Re: Version Number

Hi, I just wanted to report, that this is a non-issue, as you have suggested. I don't know what the reason behind the strange experienced behaviour was (I doubt it was the cache), but with a new download* this weekend the version and revision number are fine. *) So, now after evaluating Scrivener an...

Re: Finder Date Modified changed when no modification is made

You can make so many different changes in Scrivener. Probably (this is just a guess, as I don't know anything of the codebase) it would be quite probable to introduce a bug if you wanted what you described in your last paragraph. I mean, for this the programmer has to first asses the whole program w...

Re: Live-ish preview for MMD with Scrivener

Actually, I wanted to use Automator only to build the Service package. I've included a hand-crafted bash script rather than your workflow into Automator... I'm good enough at command line tinkering. It's just that I've got neither Keyboard Maestro nor Marked.app, so for the second I still used mmd, ...

Re: Internal format

For instance, Ioa (AmberV) does indeed use MMD for everything, but he still highlights passages to indicate parts that will need work later, and he even uses italics and bold to draw attention to text for his own attention, knowing that all of that rich text formatting will be stripped from the com...

Re: Live-ish preview for MMD with Scrivener

I didn't manage to build a Service with Automator.app in 10.5 (Leopard).

Are services supported by Automator only from Snow Leopard onwards?

Re: Internal format

Hi, thanks for your reply. I'm pretty new, so probably I'll have some more stupid questions. Also, I hope my post did not seem to rough or impolite. I find it hard to express myself with the same finesse as you professional and semi-professional authors; especially in my third tongue, English. The r...

Internal format

Hello, Keith, I wanted to ask something: is the rtf format used internally within the file (folder) intrisic to the OSX editor you are utilizing in Scrivener, or would it be theoreticaly possible to specify a different internal format (such as html5 or *tex)? Or even, if technically only rtf is poss...

Re: Small Caps

Well, yes and no. There are basically three (rather than two) ways of achieving small caps over the word processor / text engine lanscape in computing. 1) specific font feature/style -- this is mostly supported by expensive professional fonts. 2) faking small caps on the display side by smaller font...

Small Caps

Hi, Keith, I don't know whether this should qualify as a bug reported or a wish articulated. I've noticed, that when formatting text as small caps (I used it for names), after compiling the document as Word (.doc), the text is not exported as encoded as Upper+Lowercase letters with the markup of &qu...

Version Number

Hi, I don't know whether this is a "bug" in the wiring of the website (linking to the wrong .dmg) or whether this is a "bug" in the software, stating a phony version number (maybe a constant holding the current version number was not adjusted before compile), or whether this is n...

Re: folders vs. file groups

Thanks for the clarification, Keith, that's good support! I can put my mind to rest now ;-) I'll check again: concerning the target, I might have been mistaken. I didn't find the "Documents > Convert > to File / to Folder" feature myself, though I was looking for one :-) -- at some point t...

folders vs. file groups

Hi, I'm new to Scrivener, actually I'm still in the trial phase, but I like it, and it seems very likely that I'll choose to continue it and buy it. I was wondering what the difference were between folders and file groups in the binder? After all, you can add text to the folder item as well, and you...
