Re: Ulysses 2.0.2 available as a MacUpdate Promo

I was an early Ulysses user (and enthusiast), but, after finding Scrivener, gradually let go of U. Now I've dropped it entirely; neither the old one I bought nor the new one I tried works for me nearly as well as Scr. Same here. Is there something in "semantisch" which does not translate ...

Re: Imitation is the sincerest form...

I can't imagine this thing to work as well as the original. Or am I underestimating these Add-ins?

And even if this thing somehow manages to stack up to the user experience of Scrivener ... there's still Scrivener 2 around the corner, right? ;)

Re: Simple Feature: Disable Backspace

Why not either:

- Get an old USB keyboard, remove the backspace key with brute force, declare it your "inspiration keyboard". The other one from now on will be called your "editor keyboard".

Or:

- Just ignore the frakking key and keep typing. :D

Re: What do you claim to have read, and why?

As a writer I'm getting asked "Have you read (insert current bestseller)?" regulary. I prefered to answer truthfully, which is mostly "no", because in bookstores I head straight to the shelves with SF, Fantasy and Horror - not to those stacks at the entrance. Then I get asked thi...

Re: Ulysses reborn

I have been using Ulysses for a long time, just when it was released, but in the end I'm one of these weird guys who prefer to see italics instead of defining them (yes, I know, a sensitive topic). There's only one thing in Ulysses that I miss in Scrivener: The document/notes browser windows in the ...

Re: fighting the shopping frenzy

And then of course, there was the iPod Touch I convinced myself I needed to be able to be cool while controlling my presentations ... I've just made a present of that to my wife, as I don't need it at this moment as I have no teaching, but it's given me the excuse to buy a new one at the first oppo...

Re: fighting the shopping frenzy

make a deal with yourself that that's your last Mac for 4 years. That's exactly what I've been doing for the last couple of years. The good thing is that Macs - in general - are capable of delivering that. I used my iBook G4 1,0 for 4.5 years, and my iMac CoreDuo is already 3.5 years old. I found i...

Re: Fantastic piece of work Keith - have you checked this out

I see that screenwriters are the ones asking for more structural markers. Maybe, this depends on the fact that movies are usually more structured than novels, and the story must have a strong inner balance between all the elements. You're right - from the POV of the artist. But in screenwriting you...

Re: Books you haven't read but feel you should

It is such a relief to hear someone say that who is actually a fan of the genre. You're not alone. Around 10 years ago I finally decided to read LotR. What can I say ... I kept mixing up "Sauron" and "Saruman" all the time, and in the end, well, wasn't that thrilled. I could cle...

Re: What screencast tips would you like?

I agree with Matt - my first thoughts were "Importing" (because especially switchers will do this) and "Keywords" (because even after more than 2 years I can't get my head around them). Furthermore: - Basic interface features (Edit Scrivenings / fullscreen mode / corkboard) - Way...

Why not buy either a Mac mini, Mac Pro or Macbook in conjunction with a matte external display?

Re: Scrivener for Games Design

Just wondering if anyone else is abusing Scrivener for the making of game design docs Yes, here. :) I've written a full Game Design document for a Nintendo DS title and lot of story documents for games in Scrivener.
