Re: The Most Dangerous Writing App

A similar product is Vitamin R http://www.publicspace.net/Vitamin-R/
I agree that it always helps to get a nudge to stay focused.

Re: V3 Binder: Can't edit the text when select it and the font color will turn white

I tried changing the settings in Preferences, Appearance, Binder, Options trying different combinations of "Show current editor document indicator" and "Base selection color on background color". I tried restarting S3 with the different settings, but the Binder text still stays w...

Note that this is happening straight out of the box, with no changes to any settings. I tried a...

Re: Keyboards for Ipad Mini 2?

A full-size keyboard is the best. Here is a nice flat Logitech bluetooth keyboard with a case that converts to a stand. It has keys for mac ios and there is a separate Windows version. I've been using it for years. Hard-shell case is the important part. Just carry it along with the ipad when you nee...

Re: Trying to Scapple the movie No Country for Old Men

Here is a sample outline of NCFOM from LitCharts. You can get the PDF for free. http://www.litcharts.com/lit/no-country-for-old-men/chapter-1 I guess you could copy each text box then connect them using the color number reference boxes for plot lines. It would takes some work, but it would be intere...

Re: Problem Creating New Document

I was using Dropbox. I switched the save location to my documents folder and the problem stopped. Thanks for the suggestion. But now I can't share it between my laptop and iMac. Can I save it on iCloud or something else, or will the same problem crop up? Thanks again for your help.

Re: Problem Creating New Document

Command-N does the same thing. It opens a document that is copied from an existing document. My project is 40 meg. Is that too big?

Problem Creating New Document

When I click on the plus sign in the bottom left corner to "Create New Document" it doesn't open a blank document. It opens an existing document, apparently at random. If I clear it out and rename it, I lose the document that it copied. This happens all the time. I searched the forums and ...

Scapple on IOS

OK, so I love Scapple. I said it. It is flawless in it's rudimentary basics. BUT, it is SO rudimentary that I really don't understand how it cannot easily translate to Apple IOS. I get how Scrivener is hard to duplicate on IOS, but Scapple, really? I'm not a programmer, but the Scapple program is so...

Re: Least likely use of Scrivener: playlist free mp3 organizer

Late to this post, but I use music in a similar way. And no, using tools for unintended purposes doesn't sound weird at all. That's how innovation works. For a novel, I have certain songs in my head, for certain scenes and for "themes" of individual characters. These help set the mood for ...

Re: The Blog?

I agree with the "healthy social media" concept.
No blogs for over one year = unhealthy.
I thought you guys were writers. We should be begging you to shut up.

Why I Gave Up Scrivener

I finally gave up. I have Scrivener, Scapple, and even Scrivener For Dummies. I tried and tried and tried to achieve cross-platform syncing. But I gave up for one reason: iPad. Without iPad support, I can't use Scrivener. So after a great search, I discovered an alternative. I found that Ulysses III...

Scapple is the best thing I didn't know I needed.

I have OmniGraffle, MindNode and some others. Too complicated. I hesitated on Scapple because it wasn't pretty. Too plain. Why do they bother? I used the trial version, then I finally pulled the trigger as the SummerFest sale was drawing to a close. That's when I started really using it. Every day. ...

Re: Corkboard Strings

Maybe we are over-thinking this. Can the strings just be a visual reference without being traced in the metadata? Just a picture, a photo. Just a line that connects card A to card B. If you look at the corkboards in shows like Homeland and Dexter, they are purely visual references. They don't tie in...
