Re: Other ways to arrange the corkboard

I had the same question. Cmd-click in the Binder so that you just select your folders--not their sub-documents.

Re: Ability to search for documents by creation date and/or modification date.

I sometimes want to do that kind of thing too. On the Mac, I type an asterisk into the search bar, which returns a flat list of everything in my project. Then I look at these results in outline view, and sort the outline by date modified or date.

Re: Freeze on exiting Composition Mode

Keith,

That does seem to have fixed it. Thank you!

I am thrilled! :D

Freeze on exiting Composition Mode

I am running Leopard on an old PPC Powerbook G4. When working in my current project, Scrivener recently started to hang up when I exit Composition Mode. (This happened after the latest update to 2.3, but not immediately after.) I get the spinning beachball and the app becomes unresponsive, but it ne...

Re: Session target changes dynamically?

Sorry, I couldn't manage to post the video here. It's at the following link: http://cl.ly/073e0t0l070K2s083P05 I noticed while I was taking the video that the session target doesn't update while the target window is open, but if I close the target window and re-open it, that's when the change occurs...

Re: Session target changes dynamically?

Sorry for being unclear--yes, the session target does change over the course of a writing session. Definitely, I can see that the session target should be recalculated at the beginning of each session. That makes perfect sense. But what I'm saying is that it changes on a more or less continuous basi...

Session target changes dynamically?

I use and love the options to automatically calculate session targets from the draft deadline and to reset at midnight for getting a daily session target. I notice, however, that as my words add up within any given session, the session target decreases, as if it's constantly being recalculated based...

Re: Organizing pdfs AND word files?

Martin--My understanding is that yes, the Classify (Auto-Classify?) function uses the group structure, but the See Also function doesn't. (That's what I understand Bill to be saying, a bit further down in the second post you linked to.) Clearly, of course, I could be totally wrong. I often find the ...

Re: Selective blank titles

I am creating that effect in my current project by putting the lead-in section directly in the containing folder (actually, I let all the parts be files/documents, not folders). So: D)Titled Chapter (contains untitled introductory text) -->D)Titled section -->D)Titled Section I am using the MMD to L...

Re: Organizing pdfs AND word files?

I'm enjoying this thread and thought I would chip in with how I'm using DT for my "book project" (what a pleasant, grown-up way to think about the stupid dissertation). I have one large database for my research material. It has about ten million words. Many or most of those are probably fr...

Re: Devonthink and Scrivener collaboration for academic workflow

Yes, I really like the idea of a shadow structure in DT. I'm going to test that out. If I'm working on chapter 5 of my dissertation, I can see that it would be really handy to have a place in DT that was not only for chapter 5 stuff (I do have a chapter 5 tag) but also chapter 5, section 1Aic. I cur...

Re: Devonthink and Scrivener collaboration for academic workflow

Thanks for sharing your workflow! I also use both DT and Scrivener and I think the tip for exporting the Scrivener folder structure to DT might be really helpful for me. I'm just wondering--I understand you to be saying that you drag Scrivener documents directly to DT? I would love to do this but it...

Re: Activiating or De-Activating sections

nitram, if I understand you correctly, I do work in a similar way, in terms of having research notes and extra bits of text in the Binder in addition to what I think is going to be the "real" draft. But, when I want to view the "real" draft alone, I just manually select those doc...
