Re: Zotero integration please!!!

I've found a workaround that fits the bill for me. It does require some post-processing, so it isn't as nice as something like Bookends integration, but it does the job. (This is a Mac workflow.) I use the Zotpick applescript to insert Better BibTex citations into Scrivener, then I use PanDoc to pro...

Re: Zotero Plugin

Thanks for the heads up, @mijalce ! This new Zotero plugin is really fantastic, it requires a little work to install but really makes me happy. Dovepwsmith's Scrivener for academic writing with Zotero tutorial can walk you through getting started. The author recommends using pandoc (which actually w...

Re: TEXTVIEW/Markdown-Option and MORE TARGETS

Thanks Hugh-- that's what I figured, but I was hoping some polite clamoring might speed things along. ;) Also, as to the 'fake plain text' mode, I didn't notice AmberV's post from 2011 (which is a sticky on this forum!): http://literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=14412&start=0 ...

Re: Best MacBook for scrivener?

I use a 2012 13" MacBook Air and I'm quite happy. About a year ago, I migrated from Linux Mint on a 17" behemoth Sony VAIO when I realized that DEVONthink was the best data management solution for my dissertation, and it only runs on OS X. I bought my machine refurbished from the Apple sto...

Re: TEXTVIEW/Markdown-Option and MORE TARGETS

Scrivener is a rich text application... and it's moving even further in that direction with true styles in the future... Keith, any ideas about when this style feature set might be on the horizon? I think it's a great idea that would really help with my usage scenario. (Of course, I realize there's...

Re: TEXTVIEW/Markdown-Option and MORE TARGETS

Would it not be possible to have a sort of a fake plain-text mode? Like a "view entire binder in default font" kind of thing? Perhaps you could style the editor and text as whatever your preferred version of plain-text is (a nice monospace font, for example?), and then compile the documen...

Re: Viewing Skim annotations within Scrivener

Edited original post for clarity. Is anyone else interested in this feature?

It might be a really way to get support for PDF annotation within Scrivener, which could be helpful for scholars and novelists alike.

Keep up the great software! :)

Viewing Skim annotations within Scrivener

How about adding support in Scrivener for viewing Skim annotations? That would make it really easy to mark up PDFs (for free!), drag the PDFs into the binder, and then see the annotations in the editor pane. This would make it even more useful as a research and writing tool! Scrivener is written in ...

Re: Annotations on my pdf's in Scrivener

How about adding support in Scrivener for viewing Skim annotations? No need to add annotation tools when another tool does the job elegantly... Use case: I have a large library of Skim-annotated PDFs. These are organized in DevonTHINK. Now that the time comes to write, I'd love to leverage Scrivener...

Linking Behavior

I would like to be able to drag PDFs into a Scapple board and choose to link to them, rather than convert them to an image. Is there a way to accomplish this? (How about holding down Ctrl-Cmd like in the finder?) I have this problem whether I try to drag the document in from the finder, or if I drag...

Although I suppose that might break the functioning of other command key combinations, which doesn't seem particularly helpful.

Re: Scaling selection

But a true scalable interface that allows “infinite” zooming so that one can use zoom as hierarchy is a whole lot more difficult to implement than the direction that we took (and this was never meant to be a hugely complicated thing for you or us, Scrivener is our bread and butter, this is just mea...

Re: Scaling selection

Would it not be just as convenient to drag the cluster off to the side, or maybe start a new board and link to the current one in a note within it ? Well, I guess that for my workstyle, no, it wouldn't be more convenient, because scaling is another way of showing data subordination/change of focus,...
