Re: nvALT replacement?

This is such a great idea. I used Ulysses even before Scriv, and while I like a lot of things in it, it never really worked well for me for bigger projects. Meanwhile I have been looking for a good notes app for what feels a very long time, and never occurred to me that Ulysses could do the trick. ...

Re: nvALT replacement?

It requires rtf import/export conversion but I’ve been happily using Ulysses as a NVAlt replacement for the past three years. I’m not fond of its organizational structure for actual writing - Scrivener is much better imho - but it works great for a notes repository. I have 1.1 million words and sear...

Re: What does iOS 13 mean for Scrivener iOS and iCloud Sync?

Well I stand by my earlier post - that much is certain.

At this (early) point, the early adopters on MacRumors are saying Scrivener doesn’t run on the Catalina developer beta so there will no doubt be more pressing things going on, too.

The enhancements to the Files app and the debundling of iTunes will make it easier for people who don’t want to sync with Dropbox to manage files manually. :lol:

Re: Viewing Skim highlights & notes?

DT's support for Skim is probably because they both predate native PDF annotation on Mac OS X (Leopard maybe? I forget....). DT now supports both native and Skim annotations but there's no way in DT itself to tell which are which, short of opening the PDF in Skim and seeing if they are still there. ...

Re: DEVONthink 3 (beta)

I had never used DT 2, in part because of the antiquated UI but also because of the attitude of the support staff to anyone who dared to mention any issues with it. But I've been using the DT 3 beta for a few weeks and quite like it, esp. in combination with DTTG. Unfortunately their attitude to use...

Re: How to organize / what are the best tools for tagging text?

I’d look at this thread - viewtopic.php?t=50366

Re: beginner to MMD and LaTeX: looking for advice for incorporating into existing Scrivener 3/Papers 3 academic workflow

Are you in a field where you require LaTeX ? If not, I’d avoid it if you don’t want to invest the time. If so, then you’re best off really learning it, Ideally through an institutional class or the like, Here are the materials that accompany the classes at my institution - hopefully something simila...
