Please don't get me wrong. I wasn't being critical of you plugging the book, or suggesting it was something you were doing deliberately. I found your posts on the creative/editor subject relevant and interesting, and was curious about the further detail in your book. In that way, I meant that you ar...

Good luck with it all Tim! And congratulations on all you've been through so far.

You're getting pretty good at selling the book yourself... the many posts about it in numerous topics is making me think I need to think better too.

Any word of an Australian release?

There would also be the problem of how to represent such meta-data on the corkboard (the outliner would not be a problem as it could have user-definable columns, I suppose). I agree with your later comments that you wouldn't want to cram too much information onto the corkboards etc. at once. Rather...

Just another thought, which may or not be useful, if the more technical solutions above don't work: If you are concerned about using auto-replace because you might replace something important, could you select a one-stroke character that you definitely won't use anywhere else? Maybe use a ~, or #, o...

I hadn't even noticed them! I'm a bit like that still with half of the features, and I have been using for a month or so now. It is one of those programs where little time-savers and features seem to popup all the time. If you haven't done so already, I would suggest extensively reading the tutoria...

Re: Tint recent texts and remembering text when opening exte

1) Skim has this great feature where the pages you viewed last are tinted blue, darker for more recently viewing. You can immediately tell what you were viewing last and the trail you marked as you jumped through a document. It would be fantastic is Scriv. could do something similar: when selecting...

Two Bengals, slowly tearing this rental townhouse apart.

No, they're not that bad. Just very loud and playful.

Extended Meta-Data (Label/Status)

Hi Keith, I think I remember these topics being mentioned previously in some degree, but hopefully not repeating someone's request exactly as they asked for it. Obviously, with the next release so close, this is probably more of a 2.0 change, but I thought I would get the suggestion in early. I real...

It's a very nasty solution, but I got around a similar problem with a protected PDF (it would not let me print the PDF, and my brother wanted a hard copy) by using the screen-capture tool Grab-It. I had to grab each page individually, save them as TIFFs, convert them to PDFs, and then use PDFmerge t...

I have spent days now on the widows and orphans bug and it's driving me crazy. What's worse is that I never intended to have a "widows and orphans" feature in the first place. Argh! Best, Keith Can you make it hidden? Or is it put there by Apple? I don't think you will get too many compla...

To avoid the project statistics crash, try turning off "No widows/orphans" in File > Page Setup > Settings... > Scrivener > Text Options. Let me know if turning off that option fixes the crash for you. I know where the crash is happening but have no idea why. In fact, I have a sneaky susp...

Hi Keith, As with mcbend above, I also experienced a crash with the project statistics. In case it matters, this is the first time I have downloaded a beta, so the scrivener project I am using was converted directly from the previous release version to match this beta. Before the crash, I converted ...
