Re: Ulysses III

Was there a point where you thought "uh oh, what have we done?!". Not feature-wise, or regarding the design, no. This was all rather clear, and we were confident that it was the right way to go. For us, for the app, the platform etc. But late last summer, when some things went horribly wr...

Re: Ulysses III

Hi folks, I don't want to advertise or such, just babble a bit… Ulysses was created in 2002. It was first sold in 2003. Ten years ago, there was no iPhone. There wasn't even Markdown. There was no Full Screen mode. No Auto-Save/Resume, Versions, Time Machine, iCloud. Lots of stuff. All of this found...

Re: Ulysses 2.0.2 available as a MacUpdate Promo

I don't want to troll, but rather add yet another layer (oh my) to the discussion: Portability. Working with plain text, be it Markdown, MultiMarkdown or whatever, you can copy, paste, send, recieve from and to anything and everybody without ever having to worry about losing any information. I can s...

Re: Ulysses 1.6

The comments about "arrogant" and so forth - I wonder if this is a German/English-speaking issue?


Maybe, though in my case I really doubt it. ;)

Thanks for the congrats and kind words and all. Really appreciated.
Have fun.

Re: Ulysses 1.6

Eek. I do think that may be me. I hope not, though, as I don't really think it describes my approach to Scrivener at all... I don't think that's you. It's all about the "demanders' attitude", and the way these demanders tend to hail to those who implement every line on everybody's wishlis...

... The letters and emails that address me as "Mr." (Herr) from Germany have increased significantly since I got my doctoral degree. ... But this is not true. If you were named "Sybille", you'd never ever get "Mr. Sybille Whatever"-mails. ... This is funny. You are in ...

Secondly, being male is being of higher value (at least in the academic world), which you can infer from the same post of mine. The letters and emails that address me as "Mr." (Herr) from Germany have increased significantly since I got my doctoral degree. This means that people in German...

... Or take me and my father, who have gender-nuetral names. People (mostly telemarketers and others of that ilk) often automatically assume I'm a woman. The fact that people assume that you are a woman tells a lot about the American society, something good I would say. I have quite a female name, ...

It is always a good idea to rethink habits and try to feel how the other one might feel. There is nothing embarrassing about it, on the contrary, it shows that someone grows up. Nah, it just shows that someone is insecure in their actions. I find it funny how you point to the Japanese language, sta...

Sorry, got long... No, just necessary. :) Another terrible habit is the following in German: Male: "Autor" Female: "Autorin" How do you combine this as neutral as possible, trying to please everyone who might be offended? "AutorIn" You can't in singular, because of the...

Hi. ;) For the record: I have a very strong opinion that language-based separation is all in your head. Talking about "the writer" is not biased unless you want it to be biased -- writer or reader, sender or recipient. Specifying a gender for a neutral term which just happens to have a mal...
