Re: Request: Put on Menu Bar

If you use a launch app, such as Alfred (http://www.alfredapp.com), you can get to scapple even quicker than mousing up to the menu bar....
For example for me it is control-space-sc-enter

Re: Lion: First Impressions

Its the future folks. Anyway, that aside, I don't see what gestures help out here. It is just as easy---easier I would say, since you don't have to reposition your hand after the gesture---to use a mouse wheel. My main computer is a macbook pro, which spends most of its life as my desktop machine, ...

Re: Lion: First Impressions

Launchpad is all kinds of wrong in my opinion. I just don't see the point of it on a desktop operating system. Bear in mind that if/when the file system goes, this will be the only way to open your applications and start working. Two words: desktop touchscreens. The technology exists already, I've ...

Re: Bookends vs Sente (it's not redundant)

I have used endnote, papers and sente. Can't comment on bookends sorry. With Sente 6 I have stopped using the others, even for reading PDFs. The killer feature for me is the synchronization. I can open up Sente on my iPad, make annotations, and when I get back to either my work computer or my home c...

Re: Making an old MacBook snappy with a SSD

[quote="bargonzo" One question--Ioa--I believe at some point you suggested a symlink method for pointing the app on one drive to all the data and files on the harddrive (the spinner). Was that you? I'm a bit in need of direction on that process. Strategic and technical. What's the best app...

Re: Automator to deal with PDF Articles

I don't know of an Automator solution, but both Papers and Sente will rename academic PDFs and organize them. They also locate the citation data, and you can search academic databases from within them and download the PDFs directly.As a long term fan of Papers, I have recently switched back to Sente...

Re: Fast way to send mail

Re: The Growth of E-readers

Anyone can scan and OCR a book and upload it up to the torrent sites. Yes, if they've got a scanner, are prepared to sit over it for a few hours scanning and OCRing page by page. Most people don't have scanners, or if they do, they're very slow, and last time I used OCR it was pretty flakey. Upload...
