Another link to the NYT article from Daring Fireball. http://daringfireball.net/

Came here to see if it'd been seen yet, and, apparently it has. But congrats anyway. Glad I bought in when I did! :)

Thank you very much. I am glad to hear it was a, well, mythunderstanding ... :lol: What you might have been hearing about was that Leopard has changed the way default Finder views work (icon vs. list vs. browser). Under Tiger, each folder would tend to "stick" with whatever view you'd las...

The two sliders are there for both the computer and the display, but there are two drop-down choices at the top of the screen that I'm pretty sure are laptop-specific, which allow you to set up energy saver options for battery and ac adapter separately. Yes, those are laptop-specific. No point in e...

Thanks, Amber. Actually, one thing I've been curious about is whether you can leave a .scriv project ON your iDisk and access it there, so you can just open and work on your document from any computer that's got your iDisk mounted on it. :) I just haven't had a chance to try it out, though. Sadly it...

Just curious, when you say "mac mail account," you don't mean you have a .mac account, do you? (yourname@mac.com) If so, I'd imagine there's any number of ways you could copy your project files to your iDisk, both leaving them there for backup, or retrieving them from the iDisk to any Mac ...

Aaaah, bummer. Yeah, it's not worth a lot of hassle ... I haven't coded in over fifteen years and on nothing like modern GUI operating systems, so it's hard to tell what's easy and what's difficult anymore. :)

Enjoy your time off and keep up the great work :)

Typewriter indicator on toolbar icon ...? (and Cmd-Enter)

Just got thru the tutorial for 1.1, and everything looks great. One thought I had, though, as I was testing out the Typewriter mode ... Perhaps there could be some kind of indication on the toolbar icon when Typewriter mode is turned on or off? I know, it's not like it's going to destroy data or any...

Aaah, okay, I suspected it (that particular framework) had something to do with authentication. Thanks for the reply.

And again, great work! Looking forward to having some free time to actually write something now. ;)

EWSMac.framework ...?

Totally stupid and non-vital question (afaik), but I just gotta ask ... When I updated by copying Scrivener 1.1 over Scrivener 1.0 and then launched it, immediately a folder called "EWSMac.framework" appeared in my Trash folder. Is this just part of the upgrade process? :) BTW, I haven't h...

My only aesthetic complaint so far is the Dock. It is a little visually intense in the bottom position. Icons don't stand out as well, and those blue glowing dots are not as obvious as they could be. I think the Dock looks *really* nice on the sides of the screen, however. Apparently there's an unp...

Heh heh, Gruber is THE MAN. I was reading a bunch of Leopard reviews that afternoon but I'm pretty sure it was his article that got me to check for APE on my system in the first place ....

As has been mentioned on another thread, the source of many problems when "upgrading" (as opposed to a clean install, or archive and install) is older versions of Unsanity's APE haxie framework, or other low-level system tweakers that play around with OSX's internal organs, so to speak. A...

Thanks, guys ... that's great to know.

I went thru the tutorial, which was mighty useful ... I'll have to start putting together a skeleton of a story idea and see how it starts to come together as a project. :)

Writing for comics?

Hey guys! The non-linear text editor I'd bought a few years ago has completely stalled in development, with nothing approaching a Universal version, so I was looking around for a new editor and was surprised at the amoung of innovative writing software being written nowadays. I'm evaluating a few bu...
