Re: LinkedIn Group

Hi, All. I'm the guy who started the LinkedIn group. I was dragged into LinkedIn a couple years ago when several of my higher-paying clients starting using it. I'd never been particularly interested in social networking sites, but I must admit I've found LinkedIn useful for keeping in touch with col...

Price increase

A whole five dollars? No, you're nowhere near being a greedy capitalist yet. :lol:

I shouldn't say it, of course, but I'd pay considerably more for a product this good.

Re: Scrivener as (non-writing) project/file manager?

I know this isn't the intended purpose of Scrivener, but has anyone used it as a replacement for project/file managers like Yojimbo, EagleFiler, and the like? I am using it in conjunction with EagleFiler, having abandoned DTP (which has become too bloated for my taste). EagleFiler handles archiving...

"... so it tells me she knows zip about the technology." No argument there, ajea! Unfortunately, she really thinks she's on the bleeding edge of techno-cool, and since she signs the checks there's not much I can do to help her see the light. That's a problem with being a freelance-- it's u...

PS

PS my last: Keith, I should mention that one of the developers told me there was an occasional problem when exporting to Word's "nonstandard" version of RTF, so when I imported the files to Word things were corrupted. The developer-- a very helpful guy, actually-- told me this occasionally...

Oops- I guess I wasn't clear: I am EXTREMELY pleased with your current support of Word! No worries, mate!! The only reason I even mentioned it was that I've got two other excellent apps that started out Word-savvy but the developers eventually paid more attention to Mellel and Nisus and Word compati...

Nice job! And a request.

Congrats on the official release, Keith! After being a late-term beta-tester I just purchased version 1 and am looking forward to using it for my next article. One comment: at least 90% of the pubs I've written for over the last ten years insist that manuscripts be submitted in MS Word format. No ex...
