Re: Scrivener 2.0 wonderful, but a little slow

I am on Leopard (10.5.8). No script formatting. Just "Blank" as template. To make sure I wasn't imagining things I opened both Scriveners, created new and empty projects, typed into both the very same text, and yes: One was "un-smooth" (Scrivener 2.0), the other very responsive (...

Re: Scrivener 2.0 wonderful, but a little slow

The first thing to do is to go through your preference panes in System Preferences and turn them all off. If that fixes it, turn them all back on again, one by one, checking each time. I did this. Did not change anything. Also try disabling all your startup login items in your user account in the s...

Re: Scrivener 2.0 wonderful, but a little slow

If that doesn't help, try creating a new user account on your machine and test to see if the problem occurs there.


This did the trick. So, yes, it seems to be a problem of my computer. What do I do? Thanks for your help.

I turned off all other apps - to no avail.

Re: Scrivener 2.0 wonderful, but a little slow

Have you tried restarting Scrivener? Yes. Several times. Is your project located on your hard drive or on some external storage? On hard drive. Is anything getting reported on the Console as you type (~/Applications/Utilities/Console.app)? As far as I can tell - no. What are the specifics? Are you ...

Scrivener 2.0 wonderful, but a little slow

Wonderful work Keith. Just fantastic. Gladly paid the 20 odd Euros. There is one thing though that I feel you should know. When I type there is a slight lag between hitting the key and the screen reaction. I write on a MacBook with 2.2 GHz and 2 GB ram. I never had this problem with Scrivener 1.5. B...

Re: PlainText Released for the iOS

"Notebooks" by Alfons Schmidt works with iDisk (as well as DropBox). Its latest version has a full screen view for undistracted writing. As elegant as PlainText is (and as much as I love all the other apps by Jesse Grosjean) I do prefer Notebooks, even though I find its UI not very beautif...

Re: iPad as a writing/research tool

I am just now writing a magazine article on an iPad. Why I prefer it to my MacBook? Certainly not because of its virtual keyboard. But as I have always been a slow writer the keyboard issue is not decisive for me. No, the big, very big advantage of the iPad is its portability. I need to move around ...

Re: iPad as a writing/research tool

I found Notebooks for iPad by Alfons Schmid to be the app that works best for my writing. It imports almost any file, syncs over the cloud and by wifi to my Macbook, and has an iPhone equivalent. The developer's philosophy seems to be to offer/add on as many features as possible. To my taste, with i...

Re: iPad as a writing/research tool

I don' t think anybody could honestly argue that the iPad keyboard in any way holds up to a regular hardware keyboard. But it is by far not as bad as I expected it to be. Before buying an iPad I spent a half hour typing away on one in an Apple Store. I was about to buy a regular netbook but the expe...

Re: iPad as a writing/research tool

For me the iPad is a dream come true. I bought it a few days ago in Chicago and have hardly touched my MacBook ever since. I use the iPad almost exclusively as a writing tool. I have always been a "writer on the go" and hated being nailed to a desk or a room - so this is perfect for me. I ...

pogoplug: interesting backup/sync solution

This seems an interesting alternative to DropBox, MobileMe etc.:

http://pogoplug.com/index.html

Myself, I've signed up a while ago with Apple's MobileMe. Has a lot of shortcomings though. Maybe pogoplug is a better solution.

I'd be interested to know if anybody has tried this thing out.

My study. I love it. I feel it says everything about me, also unflattering things.
