Re: Still having substitution problems!!

Well, this was a handy post for me. I just encountered this problem today, where Scrivener stopped substituting em dashes, where it had been doing so previously. Other auto format functions seemed to disappear, like auto spell corrections. I did what was suggested here and it worked to bring it back...

Re: Tea Time

Thanks for the update, Alexandria. Glad youre enjoying Ashland and sorry I didn't make it down there last year. Maybe you can introduce me to the joys of mate when I do. I've yet to try it. And please keep posting recommendations here. Of course you and other scriveners can order Tao teas online. A...

Re: Tea Time

Oh well, they don't know what they are missing. Yup. Here we are, meeting and writing about stuff, on a server which is run by a company based in Cornwall, England. Weren't it the englishmen who first brought tea en masse to Europe? Hmm, the 'they' I referred to are the others on the forum who are ...

Re: Tea Time

Oh, this used to be quite the topic of conversation back in the day on this forum. I'm glad to see that tea drinkers are still making their presence known, and I'm sad to see that the heading is still 'And Now for That Latte' and not "And Now for that Mate." Oh well, they don't know what t...

I would never subject anyone on this forum to a sample of my handwriting. Shivers. :shock: People have run screaming. Really!

Re: New computer, a Mac of course

Great, thanks Wock. As I said earlier, portability is everything. So I'm going with the 15". Everything I use requires USB or Firewire only. I'm not saying I won't run into issues down the road, but I don't want to get a 17" 'just in case.' As for screen size, I may wish I had a larger scr...

Re: New computer, a Mac of course

Thanks for the posts! Very good things to think about. Yes, great dilemma to have! It will be the first time in a long while I can consider a high-end machine. :D The only remaining nag is the external card option on the 17". I sure wish they didn't discontinue that feature on the 15". I'm...

Re: More about plagiarism

Plagiarism is part of the reality of the world unfortunately. In this digital age it is nigh impossible to create and release anything that cannot be plagiarised, whether it's music (my main creative thing), writing, software, websites .. you name it. My particular favourite is when someone plagiar...

What brand of monitor do you have? Just curious. Thnx!

It could be just 1. You. Had you discounted the possibility that all the rest of us are forged identities, all figments of Kevin's overactive imagination? I mean, I know he claims he's called Keith but I'm not so sure. My opinon should be taken with a large grain of salt as I might not exist! Are y...

Re: New computer, a Mac of course

do you really need the windows install to be portable? Well, my computer needs to be portable. So, since I can only afford one computer, it will all need to be portable. :) I need the windows install in order to work with my video files. Believe me, I've researched this well, and I've been dealing ...

Re: New computer, a Mac of course

The points to look at are 1. Explicit express card for specialized HW (this would be pro level video/audio interfaces). 2. Need for esata connectivity to array. There really isn't that much else you would do with an express card that is AV specific. Yeah, as of now, neither is relevant. The camera ...

Re: New computer, a Mac of course

If it's down to the weight alone, I have a suggestion: get small scale for food, and then find something that weighs the difference between your current computer and a 17" macbook pro. Carry that in your computer bag (next to your Macbook) for a week to get a feel for the extra strain of carry...

Re: New computer, a Mac of course

Great! That's every helpful, thanks so much. I need to do a bit of research on external connectivity, since I'm getting that is the real issue. My current camera isn't an issue, but have to consider what could come down the road with my work with video.

Thanks again for the responses!
