Re: 'Climate Change Trans Counselling'

This was hilarious! On so many fronts. Students and Teachers and teachers of students who teach teachers. . . "My students are my real teachers " :lol: . . . "It's 2045 and we're still here and what you young people are doing, it's amazing!" :lol: "There should be a lipstic...

Why France’s New Tech ‘Repairability Index’ Is a Big Deal

Excerpt: Liberté, égalité, reparabilité. Our electronic devices take a serious environmental toll, and one of the best ways to mitigate that is to use them for as long as possible before replacing them. But it’s hard to know how long a new gadget will last if you’re unsure how easy it will be to fix...

Re: Buying Scrivener on Mac - any difference between buying on website or in AppStore?

How about something like this? https://kbcovers.com/dvorak-keyboard-cover/ Or, just a set of keyboard stickers? I realise you may have excellent reasons for avoiding thses solutions, but if so, I'm curious as to what they might be. (I knew a writer who wrote in Cyrillic on a Mac with the use of a k...

In every screenplay project, I embed a Scrivener document as part of building the project.


Are there any real world examples of how people use it?

Re: Milanote

I’ve looked a Curio for years. I really like it, conceptually, but I just can’t ser how it would be of any use to me. I don’t work like that at all. I know what you mean, all the bells and whistles look great but how to make it useful that is the problem. I have to see some real world examples. Tha...

Re: Milanote

Looks like a web-based version of Curio: https://zengobi.com/curio/ I've used Curio a little bit. It doesn't seem to fit the way I work, but some writers love it the way some writers love Scrivener. (And there's some overlap between the two groups.) Katherine Curio looks more interesting especially...

Milanote

I recently got an email from Mailchimp (one of their "how to grow your business" type of emails) in which Milanote was mentioned as one of the tools used by one of their example businesses. I looked it over, it looked interesting but I could not figure out what I would use it for (yet) but...

Re: Scrivener vs Word Anvil

He wasn't suggesting you should eat anything. Nor was he waving red flags. Exactly. I have no problem having a genuine conversation based on personally held perspectives in order to understand the ways and reasons why a particular person finds value in something else. And that's because the values ...

Re: WhatsApp Replacement

In the end you will use an app that others are using otherwise who will you communicate with? Exactly. The average person will not be assessing (or probably give two hoots about) the detailed security angles. They'll be using 'wisdom of the crowds' / Sheeple effects, and ending up wherever their cl...

Re: Is Scrivener for PC worth it?

In other words SirPixel does not wish to engage in silly scraps, or to defend himself from unwarranted attacks or snide remarks, but is quite happy to have and continue a discussion. That is my interpretation of what I read. And I am not prepared to defend it :D In other words, signed up for the so...

Re: Scrivener vs World Anvil

I looked World Anvil over, not something I would be even remotely interested in. But Scrivener is the product I was looking for when I somehow stumbled on it a few years ago. It was love at first sight. :wink: After a cursory look at the site, I quickly decided I'd need a deep dive just to get a va...

Re: Buying Scrivener on Mac - any difference between buying on website or in AppStore?

Getting my head around how the Mac works (after thirty years on Windows) is challenging, but the little box performs very well. The detail about the possible drawbacks and restrictions, as well as benefits, of the Mac App Store were enlightening. I had no idea any of that happened. It may be time I...
