Re: OT: Better Readability of PDF (like the Scrivener Manual)

I found Skim some years ago and now use it for reading all PDF files. Its features include: magnification, notes, anchored noted, easy and fast navigation, various kinds of highlighting, zoom, and much more.

It's free.

Re: Mac App Store Top Grossing & Top Paid rankings

Thanks for the link to the septic's companion. One of the first phrases I found was this: bunk off: v skip (as in school); play truant: I think I’m just going to bunk off and ride my bike today. bunk off. A different meaning quickly came to mind as I waited for the real definition to appear on the s...

"We are, as you can imagine, chuffed to be a featured program ... " Your being "chuffed" sent me in search of a definition (though the context made clear what you meant). In the search I found this cool little website devoted to British slang: http://www.effingpot.com/slang.shtml...

Re: Scrivener 2.rs

I'll hopefully be submitting to the Mac App Store today, but 2.0.3 will be available to users long before it gets on the MAS, because it will most likely take weeks to get accepted. … And of course, if you buy from us direct, we don't lose a third of our income to Apple. :) You've probably answered...

Re: Love it!!! Love it!!! A couple of requests

I And if I do find that mythical 3x5 printer, being able to make adjustments to print the cards on that form factor would be awesome. I have an HP2100M laser printer that easily prints 3x5 index cards. I use them for all kinds of things. AppleWorks 6 is what I use for adding text to the cards, it a...

A short review you may want to read

Hello Keith, I've long been a supporter of Scrivener and in a recent exchange of emails I turned another writer onto your great program. She's a terrific young writer from India, Mridu Khullar, whose writing is highly regarded by a lot of people. A recent Mac convert, she downloaded the Scrivener de...

Re: Cork-board

I like the pins...and I'd like an option that would make them even LARGER!

Re: Bean as word processor with Scrivener

My writing is done in Mellel & Scrivener, too (3k words in Scriv yesterday. Yay, for our team!). I learned about Bean when it came bundled as the editor in the new version of CopyPaste Pro. CP is another great app. I use it so often every day, I don't know what I'd do without it. Bean also has a...

How do you use Scrivener?

I'm glad it's proving useful, and nice to hear that it is being used in so many different ways. All the best, Keith Keith's statement, above (from another thread), made me wonder about the uses others might have found for Scrivener. I manage my own investments and have a few files loaded with stock...

Re: Are there T-Shirts???

That looks like a standard "American" sized mug. The coffee over here is generally very watered down, so they serve it in greater quantities. That would work. It's the same size as the mug I now use. I drink 5 to 10 cups of coffee a day, so if it was much stronger I'd be wired tighter tha...

karen, is your new mug a bit larger than those we usually see being used. It looks pretty big in your screenshot. I'm addicted to coffee so, in this case, bigger would be better. 8)
