Re: How to disable the divider lines in Scrivenings mode ?

Thank you, this is brilliant. I like the new divider lines, but I have one or two projects where the new subtler dividers will be more appropriate.

I wouldn't have thought to ask for this feature but I will definitely use it.

DevonThink Pro and Personal on MacUpdate for 50% off

Since DevonThink is discussed here now and then, I thought it might be of interest to some people that both the pro and personal versions are half off through MacUpdate right now ( http://www.mupromo.com ). A search of these forums would probably return various relevant threads about the program and...

Re: Scrivener 2.0... It's here.

I can't recall ever before being this excited about the release of a software program. Scrivener is a pleasure to work with and I have already been pleasantly surprised, several times, at the cleverness and utility of new 2.0 features. I was happy to pay for the upgrade (how much more I would have b...

Re: Software for General Archive

You could try VoodooPad, which is personal wiki software. I use it for collecting tidbits of information on assorted topics. I make heavy use of backlinks and other useful features and it suits my purposes very well. http://flyingmeat.com/voodoopad/ The other thing I can think of that's vaguely in t...

Re: Scrivener 2.0 - Coming Soon (No, Really)

Oooh, shiny. I love the look of comments and footnotes in the inspector. Multiple project notes will also be quite handy and all in all it looks very polished and fun to use.

Re: I want to write that great tale - but when?

As I get older I feel like the biggest limiting factor in my life is time. So many interests and goals and obligations and only a finite amount of time. I know nothing about your life or work situation. I will say that for me, adjusting income expectations (as mentioned already) is the most realisti...

You can't argue with a contract ;-)

Congratulations!

Do you mind if I ask about the book itself?

Re: BC Dates for Historical Authors?

I would love the ability to define a custom calendar. Besides, there aren't any other timeline apps that support it (unless I've missed one), so I think it would be a huge draw. Any idea when it will be implemented? I have a couple of timelines, each with thousands of entries, currently in Excel. I ...

Re: Journaling

I have used both MacJournal and Journler but I use Scrivener for this now, and quite happily. Journler is a good program. I'd call it more of a personal information manager than a straight journal. If you want your journal to include website clippings, audio, and video; or if you want to make use of...

Re: Best s/w for starting Uni.

If you read a lot of papers in PDF format I recommend Skim for its powerful annotation features and general superiority to the alternatives: http://skim-app.sourceforge.net/ When I was a law student I used Circus Ponies Notebook ( http://www.circusponies.com/ ) for all my notetaking and revision.
