Re: Scrivener + MacBook Air = ♥

Well if you download some podcasts that may affect the battery. And I'm sure their battery test includes a "download the entire discography from the Beatles on the iTunes Store"…

Re: Scrivener + MacBook Air = ♥

I think everyone here uses their Mac 90 % of the time to write, browse on the web, listen to music and do some simple tasks (photo management…). The problem is what you need for 10% of the time. If you need a lot of hard drive space, then a MacBook Air might be a problem. And an external hard drive ...

Re: Scrivener + MacBook Air = ♥

Until you go and say "do a mistake"--I always think of it as "make a mistake" ;) But I understand. Oops! Though knowing philosophers, they'd spend thirty pages explaining what "not" means... :D You're right on that one. To stay a bit on topic, the more I think about th...

Re: Scrivener + MacBook Air = ♥

Though most native speakers of English can't speak their own language right a lot of the time, it seems. But I'm a cranky curmudgeon when it comes to my own language. Yes, it's complicated and makes no sense. Yes, there's no logic to it. Yes, you should still speak it correctly anyway. Grumble grum...

Re: Scrivener + MacBook Air = ♥

Out of curiosity, what does it mean? We never got that far in my French classes (the teachers would often deny that there was any negation aside from ne ... pas , and I was like "But I've seen ne ... jamais ! (One of my history textbooks even had a famous quote in French: " Ne jamais plus...

Re: Scrivener + MacBook Air = ♥

"You cannot not consider this" has a precise meaning to me. This is a structure ("cannot not" = "on ne peut pas ne pas") you often use in French, especially in philosophy studies…

More generally, French language ignores logic…

Re: Unable to create a non-fiction, misc, or poetry

I think templates are not yet finished. At least that is the case for the Mac preview. Keith said that the 2.0 Mac release on the 1st of November will include templates. These templates should be similar on Mac and Windows, so it might not be a bug.

Re: Scrivener + MacBook Air = ♥

I leave my home at 8 in the morning and I often come back after the public library closes, at 9 in the evening. I like writing there, it is a very beautiful place. So with my day work and my time at the library, I use my computer 5 to 9 hours of real use a day depending on what I have to do every da...

It is very tempting, but still a bit expensive for a Scrivener device while I already have a laptop…

Re: Scrivener + MacBook Air = ♥

A 9 hours gauge is very good. So let's say you don't set your brightness down, only at half, you turn off WiFi, BlueTooth, you only use Scrivener and iTunes with headphones. What would that be, 7 hours?

Re: Scrivener + MacBook Air = ♥

My only concern would come from the battery, which is not long enough. 5 hours for the 11" version mean that you have to carry your power cord with you if you want to work the entire day, and this thing is heavy.

Re: Scrivener 2 Preview (unabashed praise thread)

I am a long time Scrivener user (1.1), and I was very excited to be able to download the Mac preview yesterday. I kept hitting refresh on the forum and Twitter. And finally, it was available! Twenty minutes later (it wasn't on Amazon S3 yet…), I installed it, created a test project and played with i...
