Unfortunately, AFAIK, the IBook only does video mirroring and can't display a different image on the external screen, which limits you. Most iBooks are capable of this and you can enable it easily: Did it on three different iBooks without any problem...

Old post, I know, but I'm just rereading Terry Brooks' Sometimes the Magic Works and am liking it as much as I did the first time around. I wasn't aware of this thread - but that's exactly what I would have suggested. Very nice book. Furthermore I found "Zen in the Art of Writing" by Ray ...

I'll be using Scrivener for my own capitalist activities. Does that make you feel better? Guess not. ;)

hydrogen, you might want to try out Montage (if you haven't already).

Scrivener can be used to some extent for screenplays, but obviously wasn't built for this from scratch. I guess for some people it works for screenplays, for others not so much.

Depends on the novel. Some stories requiere much planning in advance, others fall perfectly into place. Or not. ;) Myself, I like to know where I'm headed, but tend to improvise on the way. But I don't tend to change the direction. My outline consists of notes that describe the general mood, the att...

Re: Issues

On barely-related note: do you ever wonder if, perhaps, we're all a little insane on this forum? Dost thou thinkest that, say, a Shakespeare or a Dostoevsky worried or cared about the sorts of niggling issues we seem to care about so much here in this forum? I've been thinking about this, too, but ...

Re: Subject? Not really.

Yeah, but remember the Scrivvy screen/stageplay modes are for drafting only - and not meant to replace a full-featured formatting program. Then again, perhaps you're using montage just for drafting? No, I use Montage for everything concerning screenplays. It's still an early release and sometimes a...

Subject? Not really.

I've been trying all writing tools for the Mac in the recent years. Now it's Scrivener's turn. So far I like it, especially the interesting full screen mode. :) Like many others I've been an avid Ulysses user, but ... well, you know the drill. Folders. Italics. Stuff like that. But I might get very ...
