Great to hear! I'll just busy myself enjoying all the other new features until then :D

Re: Scrivener 2.0 - Coming Soon (No, Really)

I've been using (and loving) Scrivener for several years now, and was always disappointed to have to abandon it once the project became collaborative (with the requisite move to some standard file format). So I am positively giddy to see the new Compare feature! (Yes... of all the fancy new features...

Re: Good software to manage your readings for a PhD

Another program to look into is Mendeley. It's still a little shaky but it has some nice PDF annotation features. Plus it's free and cross-platform.

Re: Scrivener for iPad

For those of you who do end up getting an iPad and would like to see your Scrivener files on it, you may want to look into VNC clients. VNC clients basically give you remote access to your Mac or PC - you can see your desktop and interact with it right from your iPhone. There are already a number of...

Re: Scrivener With PK Wiki

I've devised a system of shortcuts in Scrivener to add very subtle, grey Markdown syntax in addition to the usual rich text, so you get the best of both worlds, e.g. real italics and semantic emphasis, like _this_. Jebni, can I ask how you created these shortcuts in Scrivener? My workflow is actual...

Re: Coffee and Writing

I gave up caffeine and loved the clearheadedness, but missed the ritual. My discovery of tea lattes saved me from running back to my morning coffee. I still have the occasional cappuccino on unproductive days. I find it works much better if I haven't had caffeine in a while! A tip: jump at any chanc...

Re: Export to LaTeX directly (including structure)

I would just like to second this feature request, and add: it would be great if this was paired with a feature to import tex files as well. Again, only parsing through the chapter/section/subsection-type tags to create the structure and leaving everything else as plain text. This would be fantastic ...

Re: Which pure text editor ?

It sounds like a workflow that mixes Scrivener and LaTeX is not particularly useful. So what do folks generally do for technical writing? Skip Scrivener all together and go to LaTeX? <snip> However, in my view TeXShop is missing some key features for working with long, multi-sectioned documents, an...
