Re: The status of the next update and 2.0

As one of the people who said you were mad for not just going the 2.0 route to start with, I wholeheartedly support this decision.

And I didn't realise you'd now gone completely full time, so congratulations! :)

Re: Warning before major deletion

To no-one's surprise, I read documentation too. Oh, for a life.

Re: Setting up Scrivener on a second machine using same license

Hugh is correct (I also use Dropbox, it's great), but to clarify a little: all you need to do is install Scriv on your new machine, then copy your existing .scriv documents across to that machine. That's it. (Unless you also want to copy any custom templates you've made. I don't know where they live...

Re: Notes, observations and suggestions

Matt: excellent.

And much as it may sound like I'm a moaning bastard, let me reiterate that I'm using the 0.1 alpha right now for a live, working project, and I'm already very impressed :)

Re: Problem with importing OpenType fonts into word processors

Amusingly enough, I met a designer at a trade show a year or so ago and he still used it on occasion by saving a copy back from CS3 to 8 just to collect things. Gak! Heh. Given that at least one national newspaper here in the UK still used Quark 3.1 until a couple of years ago, I can't say I'm too ...

Re: Problem with importing OpenType fonts into word processors

Dave, care to tell us what that app was? In my 'former life' I was a graphic designer, and also worked at a prepress bureau for a few years. I may well have used it :)

(And I second the recommendation of FontExplorer X - it's an excellent app, and you can't beat the price.)

Re: Notes, observations and suggestions

Two more "behavioural" observations from use: [1] When you create a new event, it should be automatically selected (or, at least, there should be a prefs option to make it so). At the moment this is a big pain because you can't select the colour label or duration during creation, so every ...

Re: Notes, observations and suggestions

The easy solution is to have the size fixed, and just have it as another of those display options to go into preferences - width of the events, spacing between characters, etc. Is it particularly important that you can change this individually for each character, or do you just want to fit more on ...

Re: New screenshot and some questions

Curses, the forum ate my reply... See above post regarding how the tags work. What I forgot to mention is that if the tags bar fills up so they cannot all be displayed, it automatically reverts to a pull-down menu instead. OK, sounds like a good solution. The filter is still necessary to allow you t...

Re: Notes, observations and suggestions

1. You should be able to drag characters already to reorder them Hmmm, you're right. I was on my PPC iMac at the time - I'll try again tomorrow on that machine. It's entirely possible it could be 'pilot error'... ;) There is probably no reason i cannot have the characters go to exactly where you dr...

Re: New screenshot and some questions

Oh, and I'd still like to see the selected event 'pop out' rather than be highlighted—or perhaps, as Phil suggests, just make the event line thicker. Either way, the visibility/contrast isn't enough at the moment.

Re: New screenshot and some questions

Bravo! Looking good :) [1] I like the header bar confined to the central pane, as it is. It makes it clear that the controls apply to the main timeline, so there's no confusion over whether they're associated with the inspector. If there are too many tags to fit in the bar, a flyout double chevron t...
