Import Web pages by dragging to Scrivener in the dock

When reading about all the other nice features added for web page import (keeping references to the original when converting to text, etc), it occurred to me... ...it would be really nice if dragging a web-page from the icon in Safari's location bar to Scrivener's dock icon would automatically invok...

There is a 1.0.1 release of Scribbles out that improved the lag somewhat on my G4. It's still laggy, but not as bad. The oddest thing about it is that the animation is still smooth...the way things draw stays silky...there is just 100ms or so of latency between moving the pen and seeing a result. P...

Scrivener is fantastic. However, see this post: http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2882 for a pretty good rundown on why you won't see Scrivener outside OSX any time soon. I don't think it's that bad a limitation, to be honest. I've been getting further and further removed from ...

Weird about the lag... My MBP is of a high spec (2.16 GHz with 3GB RAM) but shows a definite lag in Scribbles. Yet Photoshop CS is as fast as you could hope... Best, Keith You're correct, it's definitely specific to Scribbles. I didn't notice it before, but when I took Scribbles to full-screen mode...

Very nice, Keith. My manuscript thanks you (and my old manuscripts are much more responsive on import now, before I split them up).

Thanks!

Re: No eraser

It's great fun and I'll consider buying it in the end, but it has one enormous disadvantage for me and that is no eraser, including treating the eraser tip of the pen as just a nib. But I'm so ham-fisted, I need an eraser. The interface is brilliant, though. Actually, that's the one place I think w...

Hi Mirko, In this case, I can honestly say 'it's not a bug, it's a feature!'. Traditional fixed width Courier font doesn't have an italic typeface, so it's been traditional for as long as I remember (and probably much longer) to underline text in your manuscript that you want the printer to set as i...

Oh, I adore Hoefler Text. Hoefler text regular face is a relatively standard serif font - upstanding and at least on par with Garamond Pro - but it's when you, fingers trembling, hit Cmd-i, that Hoefler text really shines. It's got the best, hands down the best italic face there is. I get all shiver...

Actually, whilst designing the logo I patented the word "Coffee" as a noun, so you owe me wads of cash, Sean. I'm now going to register the word "Literature" and start suing Penguin, Oxford Classics and every English language university. ;) Well that's okay by me. Nobody has eve...

Perhaps this is old ... or actually used somewhere ... but I've found a picture of Lord Programmer with a ... Scrivener head?! In the midst of the Scrivener package. :shock: Heh - nice find. In the Contents/Resource folder. I wonder if it's just for people who dig through the package file or if the...
