Re: Paste images & clickable http://<text here>

Alan, I'm sure you'll get more info on this, but in the meantime -- you can easily make clickable links.

Past your URL into a note, then select the URL and and choose Make Link from the right-click context menu.

Re: Tinderbox reads Scrivener files

Yes, it does -- ooh the excitement! I've just downloaded TinderBox and the "import from Scrivener" works exactly as advertised. I'll be using it to update books, and repurpose content. Amazing, I never thought to ask for such a feature, and it's exactly what I need. Mark me a happy little ...

Re: Attn: Journler users

Excellent! Many thanks for the heads up. I'm thrilled. I've tried replacing Journler over the years, but there hasn't been anything at all which comes close to matching it. I have and use all the usual suspects for various purposes -- DevonThink Pro Office, Yojimbo, Evernote, EagleFiler et al, but N...

Re: Cool words DB–Scrivener or another app for this task?

Introverts, by contrast, have an engine that is racing slightly, even at idle, and you only need to let in the clutch to pull away. The problem is that introverts "overheat" more quickly -- too much accelerator and they use up all their fuel and then blow up. They then have to lie down in...

Re: 11 ebooks available! Thanks Scrivener!

Congratulations, Juh! Great work. :-)

I was reading the manual, and wondered whether Scrivener could export to KIndle format, and you answered my question.

Wishing you all success,

Angela

Re: Scrivener to WordPress/Blogger/etc... + tags & categories

Um... I use MarsEdit -- http://www.red-sweater.com/marsedit/ to post to my many blogs. Most are on WordPress, but I have a couple on TypePad. MarsEdit is simple, functional, no fuss. I've been using it for several years, and am very happy. No dramas, ever. :-) I do collect ideas in Scrivener for blo...

Re: Twig: Mini Tinderbox

Just a little update, after my first post three weeks ago. I bought Twig at the intro price a few days ago; it's worth it to me because I use it constantly. In fact, my primary Twig file has become my favorite "junk drawer" -- I toss ideas into it, as they occur to me. I create new Twig fi...

Twig: Mini Tinderbox

I installed Twig -- http://www.eastgate.com/Twig/ yesterday, and am trying to work out how to integrate it into my workflow. It's a mini version of Tinderbox, and should be useful to writers. Over the years, I've never used Tinderbox to its fullest, so I'm hoping that Twig might be the solution for ...

Re: iPhone/iPod Touch

Happy days... yes, I remember the Palm keyboards too, great memories. I bought two of them; a rigid one which had its own leather case, and then a couple of years later a cute foldable one. (Must be more than a decade ago now. I sold them both on eBay when I finished with them.) There were several e...

Re: MacSpeech and similar transcription software

I use both Dictate (on my Macs) and Dragon (on my PC), but I only use them under extreme duress, when I must get stuff out the door within hours. I prefer to write with a keyboard, or even longhand, when I'm starting something new. As Hugh said, dictating is a skill. I find that later I can see quit...

Ulysses 2.0.2 available as a MacUpdate Promo

Just spotted the Ulysses 2.0.2 word processor as a 44 per cent off promotion.

I haven't tried it for a while, so I'm off to download and have a look.

(Always a sucker for word processor software. :-))

Re: Bento 3.0 and new upgrade policy

I bought v3 yesterday.

I didn't really need it for iPhoto integration, but the QuickView when you add files is excellent.

Re: How to bring order to chaos

For the initial stages of long projects, I prefer index cards too. You can carry them around, shuffle them, and stick them onto a corkboard to see what you have.

For Curio lovers like me, watch for the upcoming 6.1 version which promises... ta da! Index cards! Can't wait.

Re: Yojimbo with an Inbox

I have folders set up, including folders for Today, Important, etc. Of all the PIM apps, Yojimbo seems to have the best search function, so I can find what I w...

Re: Yojimbo 2.0 a contender?

I updated to Yojimbo 2, simply because I have so much material in it already, and it's FAST for finding stuff I need constantly. Re EverNote, I only ever use it to get hand-drawn mind maps into Curio (I snap them with the iSight camera). I like the program, but every time I use it it annoys me, not ...
