Re: Saving and renaming a project

Instead of a Save As-command, just duplicate the project file in Finder. Simply find your project file in Finder, select it and press CMD-D or choose "Duplicate" from the File-meny in Finder. Then rename one of the files "myProject_old.scriv" and the other to whatever you want yo...

Re: Moravia, 200 lines a day

I read from a memory reported by the journalist Eugenio Scalfari, that Alberto Moravia used to work every day from 10:00 to 12:00 AM, with the goal (always achieved) of writing 200 lines in that time. This seems a lot to me. It is true that the late Moravia used to repeat himself a bit, but he was ...

Re: Very simple bibliography?

I am trying to work out the best way to create a very simple bibliography for an article (perhaps about twenty items that I do not expect to use in another article). I have looked at various forum posts on bibliographies, and downloaded Bookends. My current feeling is that, although the free versio...

Re: I am continually humbled and enormously grateful

Thank you. :) You've just cheered up a man despairing over the mayoral elections in London. :) For those of you on the west side of the Atlantic, who's only reason to look across the ocean to the UK is Scrivener, let me shed some light on Keith's mayoral despairs. Since a picture can say more than ...

Re: How is Scrivener useful for humanities scholarship?

Maybe I can learn to do the brackets, like Keith suggests. I could try that for my next chapter. But some notes are a paragraph long, and I'd hate to have all that text cluttering up the prose when the whole point is to get a sense of structure. You don't have to do brackets. If you use Scriveners ...

Re: Working with an editor's revisions to a book

...and alas, it was (probably) too good to be true. :|

I haven't heard anything from the editor about Scrivener, and have started receiving revised versions of the MS as Word files. Oh well. But perhaps I can convert him next time! :)

Re: Bee Docs' Timeline + Scrivener integration...?

Well, the thread was initially about integrating Bee Docs' Timeline with Scrivener (as the thread heading suggests...), to avoid making a new app in scrivener. But anyway, my "narrow userbase" comment wasn't meant to be negative, i just wanted to get back to the initial request for ideas &...

Re: Bee Docs' Timeline + Scrivener integration...?

I need timelines for biographical work. I've read through the thread here and it seems to me that the suggestions are very narrow in the user-base they'd attract. But hey, I have not before thought about an integration between my writing tool and a timeline app. After spending this morning (in -34°C...

Re: Working with an editor's revisions to a book

Well - I'll let you know how it goes. Its a small publisher, and my editor is a mac guy already, so I guess the conditions were right.

If he goes for it, it will be interesting to get feedback on my way of structuring my project and also to experience collaboration in scrivener.

Re: Working with an editor's revisions to a book

Lucky me! Maybe... I've just gotten my first draft of a biography off to my editor, and suddenly the terror struck me. I know its going to take a few rounds back and forth between me and my editor, with certain areas of the book undergoing fairly large swaps of sections. And loosing the nice way of ...

I might be misunderstanding Keith's answer, but it seems to me that other "multiproject" applications manage this by inserting the "printed" PDF to where the cursor is in the currently active project. Voodoopad is one such application. Anyway - its a feature I appreciate very muc...
