Can you filter documents by date?

I've not been able to find a way to filter documents by date and wondered if one exists? I wanted to filter the documents in a large Scrivener file by Created or Modified date. My immediate reason for wanting to do this was so that I could review what I wrote yesterday – which could be in documents ...

Format changes in multiple documents in scrivenings

Is it possible to remove highlightings that are scattered throughout multiple documents (non-contiguous in binder, if that makes any difference) when viewed in scrivenings? I tried selecting all text and then "None" under the highlight drop-down menu but it just beeps and nothing happens. ...

Re: Transcription in Scrivener

Another feature that some people might find useful that is missing in Scrivener is being able to insert time-stamps in the transcription so as to be able to go easily back from the transcription to the recording. Although it's not its primary function, TAMS (free) has a built-in transcription/coding...

Mendeley

Does anyone here have any experience of using Mendeley (http://www.mendeley.com/) with Scrivener? I was a a bit surprised to find no hits on the LL forum for it given the publicity it's had recently. It looks like an interesting (and free) way to manage bibliographic records and article PDFs etc. bu...

Here's a video of what looks like a genuinely usable e-reader (unfortunately imaginary):

Smart links working inconsistently

I'm having trouble with the smart links feature, i.e. the feature that turns URLs into active links. If I type a URL directly into Scrivener, character-by-character, it dutifully goes blue and turns into a link But if I past the same characters (e.g. having copied the URL from a browser) the URL doe...

Web archive link always goes to L&L

There seems to be a bug with the link that is captured in the status bar at the bottom of the window when you import a web page as an archive. The link displays the source URL correctly but when you click on it always links out to http://www.literatureandlatte.com/. This is doubly a problem because ...

Re: annotation format--what did I do?

This morning I added a couple of annotations to a piece of text in the Research folder imported from a blog (originally a web archive, then converted to text using the menu item). The annotations were red when I created them but at some point during the edit they changed to grey without me doing any...

Re: espresso machines

Thanks for sharing. That's a useful site for info on Nespresso machines, though you weren't joking about the music, were you! (just had to peek) I suppose I'm a bit suspicious about being tied into a proprietary system (though as a Mac user that's a bit of a joke) and also a bit suspicious of Nestle...

espresso machines

Been thinking about getting an espresso machine recently. Can anyone recommend an affordable machine (i.e. not much more than around £150) available in the UK?

PS: I assume this is on topic given the forum title, despite lack of Scrivener reference!

Re: ScrivNote for iPhone - feedback requested!

What I do when I want to type notes on the iPhone is use OmniFocus, which syncs automatically back to the Mac version. I use the task name for the note title and put the text in the note field for the task. Although I do have an OF project for article ideas, I find it best just to leave the note in ...

Re: Problem with Skim notes from Scrivener

I found the problem via the Skim site. Skim stores its notes in something called extended attributes, rather than in the PDF file itself. Unfortunately these EAs get lost when files are copied in many circumstances. The Skim site says EAs are preserved when copying using drag&drop in the Finder,...

Re: Show Skim annotations within Scrivener

But the neat thing about DTP 2.o is that it shows the Skim annotations within the DTP viewer (i.e. no need to open in external viewer) and without you having to do a "Save As" in Skim, i.e. it views the files natively.
