Re: Making Scrivener look more like Ulysses

Can't think of anything. Scrivener doesn't have an option to Hide Tab View, nor does it have a Sheets View. So you're not comparing like things. If you were, you would have the Library open in Ulysses instead of the Sheets, which is not possible. And, of course, basic UI elements are different visua...

Re: Ulysses ** Breaking News **

I use both Scrivener and Ulysses; Ulysses for short and long fiction works, Scrivener for long fiction with complicated plots/subplots/time arcs, etc. I like both programs (and both development teams), and aside from momentary disorientation when moving from the markdown environment to the WYSIWYG e...

That is what a feedback forum is for, and not just for cheerleaders to clap their flippers in delight matey... Mayb...

Re: Any hints on coming 3.0 features...

@Broadsides and GioGio80: Respectfully, the answer is simple. If you cannot abide the current state of the Windows product or the future development schedule, change writing software. If you don't feel that your complaints re Scrivener Windows are being heard, change writing software. If you feel sl...

Re: Tracking Submissions

Suggest you look at Submission Grinder, a free online submission tracking site. It was originally designed for folks tracking submission to sci-fy/fantasy markets, but continues to expand magazine markets, and you can always add/track submission to markets not yet in the Grinder database. Believe it...

Re: Help I want to cry

Matt and Martin gave you excellent advice. Definitely take a cruise through the interactive and watch the video. That will give you a good grounding in the basics. I've been using Scrivener for a good number of years; it really is quite compatible with a great variety of writing approaches. As M&...

Re: Scrivener links forever?

I may have missed this in menus or instructions, but: 1. Does the unlink command appear on any contextual menus related to link? I know that it is in the Edit menu and that I can likely create a shortcut key to handle, but it would be great if it was part of the contextual menu or the user could add...

Re: Really hating this program right now

I agree, because it represents print on paper, which often is my default destination, anyway. I've solved that problem. Bought blue carbon paper, fed that into my printer, refilled black ink cartridge with White Out. Being a professional writer, I just felt, you know, more professional when the out...

Re: Weird Scratchpad behavior -- freezing and "magic" typing

I tried it in Firefox, didn't experience any freezing, same with Safari and Google. So it may be another third party app or possible a Firefox extension. Re my previous post in this thread, behavior of bringing background color when highlighting/drag and drop, and with copy/paste, from web browser a...

Re: Weird Scratchpad behavior -- freezing and "magic" typing

I haven't experienced this behavior, but have noticed that when I highlight and drag copy from web pages, etc., into Scratch Pad, that it retains the background color (including dragging from this forum) and that subsequent typing in Scratch Pad continues to have the background color behind it. If s...

Re: My workaround for fullscreen issue. Improvements?

For anyone who uses the contextual menu to access Dictionary/Thesauruses, remember that you can still use that in a basic mode by changing the Preferences in Dictionary application to open a dictionary panel rather than the dictionary application. This keeps you in Scrivener full screen mode for wui...

Re: Marshall Plan for Novels

Thanks to Lord Lightning for posting the forms. I took a few moments and created interactive pdfs to make it easier to enter data and advance with tab to new field. For anybody interested. You can add them to your Scrivener file in a Templates folder (as described in the manual), which turns them in...
