I don't think anyone's mentioned Journler yet. I've talked it up here before (sorry, too lazy to find link), and at the risk of sounding like a broken record, I'll huzzah it again. I use it to store/sort/find all sorts of miscellany. The (relatively) new Lexicon feature is really helpful too: type a...

A bit rambling, but a good review nonetheless.

And nothing but smiles in the comments section. :)

Sorry to dredge up this old thread, and I know this topic has been touched upon in another thread , but this seemed most appropriate here. In addition to impressing the productivity and fiction writing folks, Scrivener is (deservedly) garnering attention from the academic circles. I just came across...

Meanwhile, over at the Sente forums , several Sente users have been asking the developers for Scrivener integration. In response, the developers have said: Scrivener certainly looks like an interesting and useful application for writers. I wonder if people who find Scrivener compelling and who would...

I don't want to rekindle the fray about Scrivener's pricing that has already been debated in these forums (sorry, too lazy to find and link...) But I would note that Journler is not free. It's donationware for personal use. The developer has been very generous in not disabling the app in any way, bu...

You can tell Sidenote to open only with a key combination instead of by screen activation. I used Journler for a while, but it was very glitchy. I found that still be the case fairly recently. But Journler may work fine for others, so it's definitely worth a look. It had some neat features. Can you...

I agree with the previous posters on this one. I see no need for browsing capabilities from within Scrivener, and in fact, I would rather not see time/energy spent on its development. Scrivener is so good primarily because it's a writing tool. As such, integration in future versions with bibliograph...

And now Merlin has posted his review of Scrivener 1.0 on 43 Folders. Check it out here.

The long and short of it is that he loves the app. This kind of exposure, especially from a productivity guru, should help keep the wolves from Keith's door for quite some time.

I'm happy to have just purchased my very own copy!

And, Keith, I trust you'll be getting this out to sites like MacUpdate, Version Tracker, et al?

EDIT: I see that v.1.0 is already on MacUpdate; no results when I searched in VersionTracker though.

Also, Congratulations Keith!

Once I got past my residence requirements and the classes they included out of the way, I left the east coast and came out here to write my dissertation. Works great via email with my advisors! :) Good idea! Actually, my student visa expires in August, so finished or not I'm going to be headed stat...

Drat! And just when I was about to weigh in with my own thoughts about Oregon, land that I miss and to which I will return once the small matter of writing my dissertation is no longer hanging over me like an Oregon winter. Oregon, land of beautiful coastlines and chilly waters, of liberal thinkers ...
