Re: Export corkboard as Mindmap, or format it as index cards in a PDF?

Hi, One possible way of capturing the corkboard is to take a screenshot. I paste into IrfanView (a free and powerful photo/image program). Then select the area I actually want and crop it. The next step is using IrfanView to Print, choosing PDF. Another alternative, depending upon the way you work a...

Re: How to cross-reference text and notes?

Hi, I have a similar problem of having large numbers of pdfs to refer to for a rather difficult novel. Searching for a possible solution, I found a program, Qiqqa, which allows you to store pdf files in separate libraries. You can highlight the parts that are important for your book. I think you can...

Re: Who overthinks?

I have only written one novel - a humourous one - and it started because I just got an idea about the main character. It was a strange experience and the only way I could describe it is that I followed the fellow and wrote what he went through, what he did and what he said. I had no idea where the s...

Feature Request: Could the Notes have backs?

Could the Notes have backs? This will allow the front "Synopsis" to be smaller for mapping and linking, whilst carrying more information/detail/draft on the back. I realise this appears to duplicate to an extent the "Synopsis Cards" in Scrivener but the latter only takes graphics...

Re: Two dashes not converting to an em-dash, three periods not converting to ellipsis

Hi,
You haven't mentioned whether you have set these up the way you want them using the menu Tools - Options - Corrections.

If not, that will hopefully solve your problem.

If you have set this up, then I can't help because this works for me and I haven't faced this problem.

Cheers.

Auto-competion list - panel not dockable

For forgetful people like me, to check that what I want to write is actually on the list requires opening the list box. However, I find it cannot be kept open for quick reference such as this because it becomes the active window. It has be closed before you can continue writing. Would it help to hav...

Re: Collapsing large notes?

I was hit with the same problem. I scribble notes of various lengths but this renders Scapple unusable because the notes are far too large to have the clarity of an overview. My suggestion is that there can perhaps be a small "header" that is visible as a note on the board (nice if we can ...

Re: Feature suggestion: tabbed documents

@MimeticMouton: Thanks for pointing this out. It is a useful interim measure.

I note that the new Beta you spoke of is out already and it mentions the file linking addition - which is great in itself, of course.

Cheers - and keep up the great work!

Re: Feature suggestion: tabbed documents

I also think tabbed documents would be useful - especially if links can be made so that an item on one tab will link to another tab or an item on that other tab. This will enable such things as - separate threads for sub-plots etc. to be linked appropriately to a main thread - linking aspects of (sa...
