Re: Non-Scrivener Specific AppleScript Question

Wow. Just took a look at this, and ... wow. I was expecting some challenges with this, but there were more than I imagined. A lot of the fonts have different naming conventions, which made for an interesting brain teaser this afternoon. Your script seems to be the best solution. The only thing I'd n...

Re: Non-Scrivener Specific AppleScript Question

@edmo 1. It's actually «class RTF », with a space between the 'F' and the right pointing double angle quotation. (Script Editor will want that space.) Option-\ for the left pointing double angle quotation and option-shift-\ for the right one. 2. I wasn't able to delve into this question deeply. I di...

Re: Need Software to Pull Highlighted text from pages

Yes, there is a Quicksilver action which will append or prepend selected text to a text file. As far as I know, this Quicksilver feature only works with text files. I think of clips as text which may contain formatting. OmniOutliner Pro can also collect snippets. Unsure if the regular version does t...

Re: Passwords, passwords, passwords

I love and use 1Password. Alas, it's Mac only, so I don't know that it solves your problem. I can't recommend RoboForm personally, as I haven't used it, but it is a password program for Windows.

Re: This can't be the case?

If you have Quicksilver (and if you don't, get it), you can select the word, press Cmd-Esc, tab over to the second panel, and begin typing in "Thesaurus" to look up the word in OS X's Thesaurus.

The courses are sold in various formats including MP3 audi...
