Re: Confusing Opt-tab behavior

I wasn't aware of the Opt-Tab new (?) feature and now that I know I find it quite useful considering that for a long time I have been using a combination of TextExpander/System services and special KeyBindings for getting this behavior. In case Opt-Tab is not supposed to do something else, I'd say p...

Re: Scrivener and Ongoing Projects

Thanks for following up KB. What I'm saying is that nothing gets out or in Scrivener when using the Sync with Folder using a Collection (containing two entries in Scrivener). I'm 7 days away from running out of the trial and while I'm finding Scrivener a good tool for me so far, I need to figure out...

Re: Scapple Beta (Download Here)

KB,

You've mentioned a couple of times already the next beta and I've been drooling over the improvements you've mentioned... so when do you plan to allow us to play with it? Will it include the buy button already ;-)?

Do you mean when using Notes > New Connected Note > On Left/Right etc?


Exactly.

Re: Scapple Beta (Download Here)

First of all I'll have to say that I'm really excited and impressed by the app (and I've already said that in other places too [1] :D). After playing with it for a bit I think I've run into a scenario where I think Scapple could do something a bit better: auto-positioning new notes when these are cr...

Re: Scrivener and Ongoing Projects

I hate having to "bump up" this question, but I was really hoping to get an answer and figure out if/how Scrivener could help in this scenario before my trial is over.

Re: Scrivener and Ongoing Projects

My apologies for reviving this thread, but I've been trying the Sync with folder feature and I'm probably doing something wrong as I don't seem to get the results I want. I'll start by referring to the confusing parts: 1. In the Sync with External Folder dialog I've set the target directory 2. In th...

Assigning shortcuts to Apply Formatting Presets

Hi all, Is there an easy way to assign shortcuts to the various Apply Formatting Presets options? After writing the first drafts I usually like to apply my styles before asking for the copy to be reviewed. I'd feel much more productive if I'd be able to have shortcuts to applying formatting presets ...

Scrivener and Ongoing Projects

Hi all, I was wondering if there's a recommended or a well known approach to deal with the scenario of an ongoing updatable writing project. Basically I'd like to use Scrivener for writing and maintaining the documentation of a project. This documentation would be exposed to others in a different fo...

Customizing Text Styles

Hi, I'm very new to Scrivener (actually I'm still in trial mode) and I'm trying to figure out how to use the Main Text Styles. Each time I edit one of them in terms of fonts this setting resets all other styles. Basically I couldn't find any way to make the Headings and Body use different fonts. Is ...
