Re: Milanote

I love Curio and use it for every single project I do, from writing scripts to planning a birthday party.

In every screenplay project, I embed a Scrivener document as part of building the project.

Re: Omnioutliner: Not sure what I did.

Have you tried Dynalist? I've been using OmniOutliner for many years, but have recently started doing more and more work in Dynalist. It also exposrts to OPML that works well in Scrivener.

Re: suggestion: conditional folder/document icons

You can create a workaround with Keyboard Maestro. Make a macro that pops up a palette containing the status metadata, and on your selection, have the macro both set the status and set the icon. You might be able to do it using AppleScript to make it faster, but you can have KM pull down menus if it...

Re: Single script page view

To turn the page white, adjust the Composition Mode prefs under Appearance: https://i.postimg.cc/PJ808f84/2020-12-03-14-41-11-486.png To see page breaks, you have to be in Page View, which is not avaialble in Composition Mode. FWIW, Page View isn't really accurate for screenplays. It's a rough appro...

Re: Save The Cat! "The Board" Corkboard image

I got it downloaded and imported just fine, and I downloaded the background as well. I set the corkboard preferences to use the new image. For some reason, the corkboard background works fine on the topmost level of the binder, but when I click the "Outline" folder, it shows the corkboard ...

Re: Does the "Hero's Journey" Writing Approach Apply to Military Techno-Thriller / Historical Novels?

One of the things that distinguishes Tom Clancy's writing is that he takes an enormous geopolitical story and manages to put it on the shoulders of one hero. Whether it's Jack Ryan or John Clark, Clancy centers the story around them, even during chapters spent following other characters. The value o...

Re: Plotting a novel in Scriv

Try using the corkboard and Arrange By Label. it's similar to Dabble's approach. You need to define your plotlines as labels. Then assign the appropriate label to each document. Arrange By Label will put cards for each label on its own track. The Arrange By Label icon is in the lower right corner of...

Re: Is Scrivener NICER on Mac?

Yes, Scrivener is much better experience on the Mac. I also use both platforms when work requires it, but do my perosnal work on a Mac.

Also, if you use other apps in conjunction with Scrivener, the experience is quite smooth on a Mac.

Re: Screenplay Formatting - Auto Completing Mini-sluglines

Yes, you can. You need to add your new elements in the Script settings area, go to the Auto-Complete tab and activate Auto-Complete for that Element. 2020-09-21_16-39-33.642.png One caveat: if you're writing a production script, making the mini-slugs a separate element from Scene Headings will not i...

Re: Screenwriting Elements change on their own

For anyone interested in the workflow I posted here, Final Draft 11 now supports Scivener's clipboard. You can now copy pages of screenplay-formatted text in Scrivener and paste them into Final Draft with their formatting intact. I'm going to set aside WriterSolo and use Final Draft with Scrivener f...

Re: Way to see WYSIWYG when writing in script mode?

UPDATE: Final Draft 11 (11.1.3 Build 83 here) now supports pasting from Scrivener's Script Mode and retaining screenplay format. That means you can round-trip between Scrivener and Final Draft by copy/pasting. On the Scrivener side, you need to use Edit>Paste Text as Screenplay. (I've set up a Keybo...

Re: Regex help

Thanks very much for your reply.

Some clarification:

I'm searching for documents in the binder which contain both

Code: Select all

"LUKE/n"

and

"HAN/n"


NOT

Code: Select all

"LUKE AND HAN/n"



How would I properly form a regex search for that in Scrivener?
