A publishing contract is freaking me out...

...I think I made a very naive mistake. My (esteemed) London publisher sent me the publishing contract via ordinary mail (I don't live in the UK). I signed it. I sent it back. It was April. The book (a collection of edited texts) is due for publishing in March 2010. To this date (October) my publish...

Re: Two Help menus

Hi, that just happened to me on Tiger after an automatic update. I reopened Scrivener, and the second Help menu is now gone. If it helps, I'll keep the Console open next time I start Scrivener, but what should I be keeping an eye on? It's gibberish to me...

Re: Ghost notes nonfunctional

Hi, this happening to me as well, I'm using 1.51. It's either a new bug for my Scrivener copy or I just haven't noticed in the past months idly spent away from my writing projects. The annotations in ghost mode remain stubbornly faded. Is it something I can fix downloading a new dmg?
Thanks!

Re: UPDATED: Scrivener 1.5 beta 2 now available

Hi, the version notes say: "Script mode is now saved per-document rather than per-pane." I think this behaviour is not consistent: I have files A and B in normal mode. I create file C. I apply Script mode to file C. I then open file A or B: they are still in normal mode, as expected. Now, ...

Re: Summarising, organising and moving data

Hi, I'm in a similar position, that is: dealing with VLR (Very Large Research) material. Yes, the answer is: it's the struggle of writing. However, in the course of time I found it useful to stick to just one rule: keep system of folders and group files consistent. What this means for me is the foll...

Wishes for 1.2... not for 2.0...

Hi, I read with great interest the developments of Scrivener into its 2.0 transformation... I'm looking forward to it, but I wonder if any of the new features mentioned in this Wish List forum could still be released in 1.2. I'm thinking about a specific feature I need the most - I have an absolute ...

Re: (Not) Thinking About Dates

Hi, I've been trying to jot down some notes over the winter holidays, but I didn't go too far; I hope my notes below make enough sense and provide you with some ideas. I'm writing a biography, so my interest in this application was immediate. Building up a timeline for a biography is not very differ...

Re: Importing an outline into Scrivener

There's a plugin for OO Pro on Fletcher's website, that can be used with Scrivener's MultiMarkdown import. It's quite useful, even if you don't use MMD itself. Yes, true, but somehow it doesn't meet my (somewhat complex) requirements, which should be addressed via OPML (my understanding is OPML aim...

View > Expand to level "X"

I'd like to suggest a feature I use in OmniOutliner (although I'm aware that OmniGroup uses its own code for their outliner, so maybe this can never be applied to Scrivener). Omnigroup developed an applescript to expand all rows only up to a given level, which the user specifies in a dialog box. Not...

Option+click with split panes

I don't think this is currently possible, as it doesn't seem to work on my Mac: can you Option+click on a file in the Binder and display the file in the pane which is not marked as the active pane? Currently, Option+click in the Binder is equal to just clicking. For example, in my current configurat...

Re: Enhancements to Edit Scrivenings

I second the request to simplify the Edit Scrivenings Selection options. Something to make them more intuitive. And maybe the Edit Scrivenings command should be more visibile in the menu, i.e. I suggest it is given a more prominent position (for example at the very top of the menu), .... aaand maybe...

Re: Combining all chapters into single story

If what you want is getting a single file out of your 50, then choose all the files you need in the binder, then choose Documents > Merge. The operation IS NOT undo-able. Try on mock files first, or copies, and just choose a few of them to see the result. It might take a few seconds to complete. Ptz

Would it be wiser to finish my current project in the PC environment, and then undertake new projects on a Mac?
