Personally I've never felt at home in Nisus. I'm still hoping that Pages 3 lives up to the rumors about it being more word-processing oriented than the layout emphasis of Pages 2; also, 2 is extremely slow in handling large docs. In many ways, a beautiful piece of software, though. I think it's bein...

Like you I'm sure, while watching Deadwood I kept catching various and many stray bits of cultural DNA - Shakespeare and many others - and especially, as you say, from Dickens: the proliferation of characters is rather breathtaking (I'm re-reading Copperfield aloud to my girfriend every night, so th...

Lordeth Lightening, this is as true as wine I think. I'm always disappointed when I finally find the word for which I've been hunting. :wink:

What cocksucker says we can't use 'zounds' right now? or even, 'God's wounds!' They have a real nice cadence to them. Yeah, right Crux! I just tried to get the local crackdealer off my front steps by saying, "Zounds! Won't don't ye git off me bloody steps!" He went into some sort of fit -...

Happy New Year to you and all in turn! I personally think it's high time that much of the puritanical reaction to sexual swear words went the same way as our grandparent's objections to religious ones. Actually, I'm against the modern rage against taboo - what's the fun in the thing if it's not forb...

if you can, try to catch David Attenborough's Planet Earth series. E, thanks for the heads up on this. I loved his series on birds. He's truly a pleasure to listen to. btw, during Christmas I spent time with the first season of Deadwood; it's fantastic, dark, beautiful - and hits many true notes I ...

lgoodman, there are many finer aspects of play formatting that could be argued over ad infinitum. The important thing to note is that Scrivener isn't a "formatting program" like FD and Montage, but a program for developing ideas and drafting scripts. Given that purpose, it works fanatistic...

Eiron, I have the first season of Deadwood in my bag ready for Vermont and Christmas week - your posts about it have me extremely curious. On Scarlett J., ummm talent? Really? I thinkest thou art being overly polite. She - including her botox and otherwise "enhanced" looks - annoys me to n...

Yes indeed :D Now that I've grown accustomed to cocoa interfaces, anything else feels rather retro, if ya know what I mean. :wink:

Re: MMS6

Thanks LL for the info - I'll keep my eye on that website. Can you tell me, though, whether it's native OS X? Or would you have to shoot me after telling me - not that I'd mind :wink:

LL, like Gerry, I'd love to hear more about this version - specifically if it's OS X native. Are they still looking for beta tester? how close to release? Cheers!!

Re: KNOWN BUGS (please help me track them!)

Notes pane sometimes becomes too big There is a bug whereby the notes text view in the inspector can become too big so that the top of it overlaps the meta-data panel above it. This happens either when inspector is resized or made visible, and it seems to have something to do with the main window b...

Inspector Weirdness

ummmmm...my "General" folder is obscured by the Synopsis folder, as if it's slid up behind it??? Even part of my "notes" folder, too. Anyone else having this problem? Anyone even understand what I'm saying? :wink:

While you were merely nursing your bitters, those silly dwarves were no doubt negotiating a treaty for perpetual intergalactic peace. So who looks silly now? eh? :wink:
