Re: Question: How to use annotation

Purpleplume, in step 3, don't hit the annotation button. Instead, do like this: Step 3. Place your insertion point at the space immediately following the yellow highlight and paste your weblink in. Step 4.Select the weblink you just pasted in and THEN hit the annotation button. That should solve it....

Re: Question: How to use annotation

Also, when you compile the draft, its probably a good idea to go to the "Text options"-pane and tick the "Export annotations as RTF comments". I forget if this is default or not. Anyway - it ensures that your annotations end up in Word as comments in the margin.

Re: Support for bibliographic software?

This thread has been very useful, I've picked up quite a few tips that I've implemented in my writing routine immediately. So thanks! But with regards to getting references from eg. EndNote - let me ask - why don't any of you simply arrange things so that you can see both your text in Scrivener and ...

Re: Split Screen Editing

I get it. Its interesting how many issues people here have with the way the Mac OS handles text. So many of the problems boil down to just this. I suggest you get a t-shirt saying something along the lines of "Don't blame me, blame the OS." Anyway - thanks for explaining - always enjoyable...

Re: Split Screen Editing

I guess the issue is that when you drag and drop within the same document, it moves the text without duplicating it. So, when you're moving a piece of text from one part of a split screen to another part, i.e. changing text views, in the same document, it shouldn't be duplicated. But thats because I...

Re: Split Screen Editing

Yep - you're missing something. :)

I tried this just now, and it appears very counter-intuitive to me that pulling a text-piece from one pane to another duplicates instead of simply moving the text.

But is this a big issue? Not to me...

Re: Software for organising historical documents

Mark: I downloaded Together last night - its a great app! In fact, it would probably solve all of my issues in a simple manner. All the other organizer-apps appear to be too full of features I will never use, but Together seems so simple and straightforward... I will try Together for a while and see...

Re: Software for organising historical documents

Thanks for the tip - downloaded Scribe, and it looks interesting, but it doesn't seem to be tuned well enough towards my need for organising photos of documents. But I will test it with some documents and see how it feels. But since my need is primarily a way to organise photos of documents, scribe ...

Software for organising historical documents

Hi folks, I write non-fiction stories, and I'm currently working on my second biography. Naturally, a huge part of that work is research, and in particular collecting archive material, usually in the form of letters. For my current biography-project I've collected about 3000 letters to, from and abo...
