Re: Keeping track of research documents...yeah, again.

There's a reason not to make date-changing easy. For scientists, changing the creation date of one's research notes is known as fraud. You wouldn't want a program to let you do it accidentally. Although I share your concern for date manipulations in the digital age, I seriously doubt software devel...

Take a look at Bento. It's a mini-database application that, among other things, talks to iPhoto and supports meta-data for iPhoto contents.


Off to take a look I go! Thanks!

Re: Keeping track of research documents...yeah, again.

Ok - been playing with A Better Finder Attributes 5. It does what its supposed to do just fine. But I do not think I will be able to properly incorporate it into a smooth workflow with eg. Yep or iDocuments for date changing etc.

Checked out Yojimbo, but it falls through on several issues...

Re: Keeping track of research documents...yeah, again.

Thanks! Abetterfinder looks interesting, I will check it out.

Date changes are discussed in dt forums, but it appears to have landed om using a script for this. I will check this out though.

Keeping track of research documents...yeah, again.

In my work writing non-fiction, mostly biographies, I photograph thousands of historical documents as source material. This includes letters, diaries, reports, articles etc, even book chapters. Up until recently I have simply used iPhoto for storing, dating and tagging this material. Its worked very...

Re: Post your Scrivener screenshots here!

I must agree with Thelgord - I was perfectly aware that I was not pushing Scrivener to its limits, but these screenshots have really slapped me in the face with regards to how much more efficient I could be using the software. CONSEQUENTLY, I've readjusted everything and ended up on a neat left bind...

I've had the same experience - discovered scratchpad by accident and these days I use it almost every day. And the 2.0 improvement sounds good too!

Re: WriteRoom Update & SimpleText.ws (iPhone)

Yes, for now change back to writeroom.ws in WriteRoom for the iPhone. As Amber says, 1.54 addresses this, which will be out in the next couple of weeks. 1.54 allows you to choose between simpletext.ws (the default), writeroom.ws, or set up your own server if you are running your own service. It app...

Re: Scribbler™ for iPhone -- Early Look

Excellent, Jot. And let me tell you, you don't want to talk to a phone support person BEFORE the latte has arrived. So this is prolly all for the best for all of us.:)

Resizing the Inspector...

Hi folks - I just have a very quick question (and yes, I was unable to find this adressed specifically in other posts...): Is it true that there is a max width on the inspector? It seems that this is unrelated to screen width and set to somewhere close to 5-600 pixles... Have I missed a setting some...
