Bravo!

Just dl'd the trial version of this SCAPPLE thing. After about five minutes it was clear that I would be buying it. I'm a list-maker, note-taker, and idea-doodler and Scapple looks an awful lot like a digital napkin to me. Many thanks!

Re: Noodling

On second and third thought I'll stick with the pencil-mode. I tried a simple shape-and-text program and it's more trouble than it's worth. Also, the pencil and paper are there at your side while you're dealing with the other features that S. offers for such doings. Sometimes the old ways are better.

Noodling

That's what I call it when I am trying to get the range on a new project. Might be an essay, a poem, an article, or something longer— just about anything. I'm used to using a piece of paper and a sharp pencil, but I have recently discovered (I'm a new convert) that S. is a great tool for this early ...

Looking for Website Software

I'm a new convert to the Church of St Scriv. I've noticed that this seems to be a pretty knowledgeable bunch about Mac software in general and thought I would pose this question. I used to maintain two or three websites, now mostly moribund. I'd like to revive them, but... They were originally creat...

Re: Name Generator

I always wondered where they got them, those names supposedly of the senders on all that spam. Now I know. There are always just two names, never three, and never any initials. Plus, there are always lots of "cross cultural" names like Rosarita Epstein and Lumumba McKee. Definitely a case ...

Re: My first post here

One thing I'd like to add... All writers are more or less peculiar about the writing act. Environment has always been important to me. A room, or a space, where the vibes were right, or at least could be made to be right. I have such a room in my home and it's where my most intense sessions take pla...

My first post here

Hello. I just bought my copy of Scrivener about a week ago. I learned about it by accident, looked it over, downloaded a trial copy, and bought it the next day. It seemed like a really comfortable and multi-faceted 'writer's environment' as opposed to a single-purpose program. I've always made heavy...
