Re: Sente users: Exporting notes to Scrivener (RTF and OPML)

I have recently created a video tutorial for the process of exporting notes from Sente to Scrivener. Here's a link on YouTube: http://youtu.be/E17pX31UgUo

Re: Any document on academic research writing

Here is a little idea of what my workflow looks Iike. I use Sente to search research databases, finding relevant literature which I then download into Sente (along with the reference metadata). I read the articles in Sente (on either the Mac or iPad although the text is crisper on the iPad), annotat...

Re: Best bibliography tool to use with Scrivener?

I am using Sente, and have been for about 2 years. I have tried Bookends off and on over that time. I personally prefer Sente because of its integration of reference management, search/browse databases, direct import of reference data, lookup of reference data from PDFs, annotation of PDFs, note tak...

RTF bookmark not created in one case

I have a strange situation. I compiled my manuscript to RTF, with bookmarks and a table of contents. One of the bookmarks that is in the TOC is not included in the document, and the text where the bookmark should be is marked as bulleted and indented. In other words, the TOC entry is there with the ...

Re: scrivener, multimarkdown, latex and sente

You could, of course, use find/replace on the Word document to replace the BibTex citation tags with Sente tags. Word supports some kind of regular expression style replacement syntax with backreferencing, so you could use find and replace. It is not 100% foolproof, because the BibTex citation tag f...

Re: scrivener, multimarkdown, latex and sente

If I use the Latex bibliography/citing format in Scrivener notes (\cite{Calkins:PsychologicalReview:1894}) and then decide to compile in word, would I still be able to scan successfully with Sente to generate a bibliography and proper reference/citing format? If I understand you correctly you want ...

Re: scrivener, multimarkdown, latex and sente

This thread might better belong in the "software by other folks" forum. I am not a LaTex user (habitually although I have used it to generate equations). The citation tags for in-text citations can be generated by Sente if you select that format in the Format menu for drag/drop, copy/paste...

Re: Footnote Question

I have been using Scrivener to write academic papers for a little over a year, including one large review article. I have used Sente in that time, and find it integrates very well. You can drag and drop or use a command-key sequence to put citation tags in the text, copy/paste, etc. I have a relativ...

Re: Bookends vs Sente (it's not redundant)

1. Write all in Scrivener, not worrying about refs 2. Export to Pages 3. Use Sente with Pages (I have done this for many years, works well for me) or 1. Write in Scrivener while using Sente in 'cite as you write' mode 2. Export to Pages 3. Scan document with Sente to format refs I use the second wo...

Re: Bookends vs Sente (it's not redundant)

I also thought Papers was aesthetically very pleasing, a quality I appreciate. I can't say too much as it's not released, but I have used a preview version of the new Sente user interface coming in the next version and I can say it represents a major modernization of the Sente UI. Much more intuitiv...

Re: Am I right in thinking that Scrivener is not for research

Glad you saw the light! :) Seriously, there are different products that work with the way people think differently, so for some Scrivener might be the right tool, whereas for others a word processor is better. It works for me. As a follow-up to the numbering of figures, etc. I altered how I handle t...

Re: Best word processor to export to for theses?

I'd like to do everything I can to avoid MS Word - it was nightmarish trying to use that for the final draft of my MS, and in my experience just doesn't handle large manuscripts with lots of figures well. I wanted to avoid Word also. But in the end it seemed to best handle the RTF output from Scriv...

Re: Bookends vs Sente (it's not redundant)

EndNote is very good at managing in-text citations and preparing a properly formatted reference list for my end document. In fact it is brilliant at this. But, despite it's claims to be a good reference manager, in my view it isn't. It is difficult to edit data and is "clunky" to use. Thi...
