Re: Alternatives to Scrivener for iPad

Mobile Ulysses (iPhone and iPad) just won a 2016 Apple Design Award. For me, the iPad is my primarily writing (and working) device and Ulysses is a joy. It is wonderful using the split screen function on the iPad Pro with the Apple Smart Keyboard.

Re: Ulysses III

Thank goodness for Ulysses. I've been using it since its reincarnation as Ulysses III and find it the ideal solution for my multi-valent and "weird" writing. It has an elegant interface, uses Markdown and.txt files, and is nimble and nomadic. I have seamless syncing with my iPad, upon whic...

Re: Ulysses III

Marcus, thank you so much for posting. After getting an iPad two years ago, it quickly became my main working tool. I write, teach, research, draw and record with it. (Just bought the 128GB version!) Daedalus exemplifies what I love about the iPad working experience, as Daedalus is so nimble, elegan...

Re: favorite todo list programs?

I use Autofocus--I forget which iteration--maybe the second one? The version that has "above the line" and "below the line." I have a very simple, custom implementation of my Autofocus list on OmniFocus, which is just a terrific app. In OmniFocus, I also keep custom lists--someda...

Re: Help syncing files to Dropbox

Thanks again. I'll mosey over to Other Software.

I do have the plain text options checked. That's about the only thing I did understand!

Re: Help syncing files to Dropbox

Thanks, Mimetic! It worked! Egads you are smart about this stuff. I thought because the dropdown menu in the Sync dialogue had the Synced Documents collection that I HAD to use that and I also thought that if I checked "contents of the Draft folder" and "all other documents in the pro...

Help syncing files to Dropbox

I've looked at the Sync video and tried to follow the instructions and can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. I have a Scrivener project, an art project, which has many folders and many files. I don't want to sync the entire project; I just want to sync a few current files to Dropbox so that I can a...

Re: What else is on your Mac?

PS: ADD? I can hardly believe it, given your super organization! Thanks! Organization is the only way I can cope with being slow, absent minded and easily distracted. If my workplace (studio, computer, files, etc) is organized and I have some hope of finding things when I need them, then I have som...

Re: What else is on your Mac?

Hee. I have 262 items in my Apps folder. I am differently abled a/k/a dyslexic/ADD and strive to keep my workplaces, physical and virtual, neat and well-organized to help me focus and work more effectively and so a lot of my favorites are utility-type apps. My favorites/most used (besides Scrivener)...

Re: Activation?

I support the activation process. (Of course, it worked for me. :D ) As an artist, I want to make sure that Keith is compensated for his work. This activation scheme is much less obtrusive than the Adobe ones, for example, and I think it's important for a "niche" application like Scrivener...

Re: Scrivener 1.52 now available

I'm thrilled to have the WriteRoom sync. This is going to make Scrivener more appealing for my ongoing projects. Being able to make reading notes, e.g., on my iPhone and sync them in one go is a much better workflow for me than emailing to myself and just making more emails to manage. And being able...

Re: Freedom from internet addiction

Yeah, another weak-willed procrastinator here. A/k/a differently-abled multi-valent dilettante ADD-er always "researching".

I think I'm going to give Freedom a try. Of course, I'll still have my iPhone . . .

Re: Mori?

I was an early adopter of Yojimbo as an information "dump" and used Mori for many months as a digital journal (not just notes, but images, etc--anything related to my ongoing studio projects). I've now replaced both of these with Together, which has smart folders and the robust tagging I n...

Re: Together vs DevonThink 2.0

Faulkner, my Together library is bigger than yours (hee!)--1.5 GB.

There's a cause for your performance issues. I'll leave it at that.
