Could you make Scapple editable within Scrivener?

I'd love to have active Scapple boards within my research folder. Doable?

Installing Scrivener on new Mac without migrating

I just bought a new MacBook Air. I don't want to migrate contents from my old MBP because of all the clutter. My Scrivener licence entitles me to install another copy on this new machine, but how do I go about it in practice? I didn't purchase my copy from the App Store so that option is not availab...

Re: iOS Update

2014? Argh. L&L sold me an iPad last year, and now is going to sell me a MacBook Air 11''. Oh well, better this way than not having Scrivener at all.

Re: Welcome to our new team member - our iOS developer

^ Of course. My plan is to do the writing on Scrivener, export in HTML, and then do the cosmetic stuff on UX Write before submission/sharing. Really can't wait.

Re: Welcome to our new team member - our iOS developer

Can't wait! Scrivener is so useful for academic writing (and let's be honest, the syncing workarounds are fiddly) that I need carry my MacBook around all the time. Come on folks, there are excellent word processors for iPad such as UX Write -- don't fall behind!

Re: Scapple Beta - New Users Please Read

Also, I have to disagree with nrx on directionality. Directionality is important because it is a standard way of symbolising logical connections: double-sided arrow = strict implication, one-sided = entailment, etc.

Different colours would be extremely helpful.

Re: Scapple Beta - New Users Please Read

Brilliant. And, of course, this software is crying out for an iPad version. Perhaps one supporting stylus/handwriting input. Just piling up the pressure :)

Re: Welcome to our new team member - our iOS developer

Fantastic. I've been an iPad sceptic so far (though a longtime Mac and iPhone user), but I think L&L just sold me an iPad 3. I think that will come out next month; don't make us wait too long for Scrivener for iOS!

Re: Marking up text as quotation?

Thanks for the clarification. Yet I really think that if we had a standard option then many people wouldn't bother tinkering with it -- same as with the footnotes. The text can always be formatted after compiling anyway.

Re: Marking up text as quotation?

Thanks for the prompt reply, Keith. I guess this is an item for the wish-list: wouldn't it be possible and perhaps even simpler to have something like the footnote markdown, with a default format (indent by a tab and a half, font smaller than main text by 1pt, say)?

Marking up text as quotation?

Apologies if this has already been addressed, but I couldn't find it anywhere. Is there a way of formatting part of the text as a quotation, in such a way that it would then appear with an indentation and maybe a slightly smaller font size in the compiled draft? This is almost as important as footno...

Viewing and magnifying PDFs in Scrivener

OK, I must be doing something wrong: when I open the PDF files that I store in the research folder, I can't zoom in or out. So some files are near-illegible because of the font size. How do I get around this? Thanks in advance!
