Re: ScrivNote for iPhone - feedback requested!

<Dull background history> I spent a lot of the early 2000s writing large amounts of text on a Handspring Visor (with keyboard) and then a Palm Tungsten (with a smaller keyboard). They were fine for getting first drafts down, but rubbish for editing. When I got my iBook in 2004 I was only taking odd ...

Re: Aeon Timeline Version 0.1 (Beta)

Matt,

Brief apologies - I have just submitted comments using the blog form before reviewing posts here. I now find that you are already addressing everything I mentioned.

:?

The app's looking very promising.

Re: Writeroom for iPhone

I've just found this application myself. The writing environment looks better than the built-in notes application - just a bit more serious (if that makes sense). The real fun(tionality) of this app though is the quirky wireless link which gives a method of viewing the text on the iPhone in Safari, ...

Re: Images difficulty

Well, I think I may only be a little way ahead of you on this learning curve. I started at Latex from scratch because I wanted to get away from formatting large documents in Word-like ways. Mark-up as a concept hasn't been a problem (I used something similar to Latex on main-frames back in the eight...

Re: Images difficulty

Having gone through a good chunk of this learning curve over the last few months, I am clear that MMD is a very powerful tool - and I am currently using it with Scrivener to produce a 100+ page software manual. However, I do recall that it took a long time to work out exactly what was going on with ...

Re: Parts of images

Once again, the Grab service is one way of doing this: 1. Split the Scrivener window into two panes. 2. Open your image in the top pane and a standard text document in the bottom one: make sure the bottom pane has the focus and that the insertion point is where you want to paste the image fragment. ...

Re: More newbie questions

Re [3]: Have you thought of using Grab for this? I'd suggest: 1. Open images in Preview. 2. Switch to Scrivener and put the insertion point in a document. 3. Select Services>Grab>Selection then select the part of the image you want to use. Scrivener will paste it directly into your document at the i...

Scrivener services

One of the benefits of Google docs finally working with Safari is that you could write your notes on any computer (Mac or PC), then, when you are ready, use the Scrivener clipping service within Safari to get your notes quickly and easily into a Scrivener project.

Verse drama

Thanks Keith,

I think I understand the reason behind the restriction. However, you have given me an idea for tackling the problem. I can probably get away with only two or three extra styles to cover the occasional gaps I need.

Best wishes

Setting tabs for script formats

Writing normal plays with the script settings is great. However, I seem to be coming unstuck when it comes to verse drama, where I need to tab in several stops from the margin if one character picks up the second half of a line. e.g. BOB I have the first part of the line. JIM And I've the rest as we...

Beta breakthrough

Just installed the 1.11 beta 2. At last, I can print again! Project statistics work (although I haven't touched the w/o option - don't dare to). Nothing untoward on the console. And I *really* enjoy colouring in the binder icons with the label colours. :D Thanks Keith. MrGruff 2 GHz MacBook, 2GB RAM...

Automatic backups

Manalive! It works. I've felt guilty for never doing anything with the endearing automator robotman and suddenly here's something useful he can do. Thanks Dan.
