Write to NTFS?

Ugh! Help! The Mac can see the remaining PC in the house, and vice versa. And, while I have finally managed to get the Mac to copy files from the PC and vice versa, I STILL can't get the Mac to write to the PC's NTFS partion. No rights. I've tried every MS admin trick to no avail. The volume is shar...

Re: File tagging?

Brett - don't know about Scrivener, so maybe someone with more knowledge could add to that. It's a good thought, and though my novel writing hasn't required the kind of need that yours has, it is interesting. On the Finder side, I searched the NoodleSoft forums (Hazel), and found several very inform...

Re: File tagging?

Brett - I thought about keywords, but that's too time consuming for my tastes. A quick file tag would be nice.

I saw Punakea, but really - $28? Ouch! Now, if it could do other things, like MailTags/Act-On combined, that'd be different.

Re: File tagging?

Yeah, agreed. Money is the issue at the moment, so it might have to stay the Time Machine drive, copying data to an old PC, and then a thumbnail drive and re-writeable DVDs stored in the safe. Clunky, but temporarily the best I can do. I'm somewhat reluctant to trust some data to an off-site company...

Re: File tagging?

Neat trick, Amber. Like you, I document everything. I have an entire CP Notebook dedicated to nothing but geek stuff. I think I could easily rebuild from square one down to the smallest detail if I had to. I'm a sheer novice at Hazel. I wanted an uninstaller and I liked that Hazel could monitor and ...

Re: File tagging?

Amber - which is perfectly fine with me. Hazel can do what it's supposed to. And, I can put it to more use that emptying trash, coloring old unused files, removing unused apps, and cleaning out my download and mail download folder. I've been thinking of a way to have Hazel rename bill pay PDFs based...

Re: File tagging?

Yes! Thanks, Hugh!

I really like how Mailtags has worked out and got to thinking that it'd be nice to have a way to tag other files within my document folder.

I'm also thinking of the possibilities of getting Hazel to work with file tags.

Re: Gmail, IMAP, and Apple Mail question

Thanks! I switchen POP off. Running on IMAP now. One day, I should go in a delete messages I don't care about. 7GB seems more than enough space if I'm also keeping things local. IMAP is easier with the iPhone now. Just have to make sure I REALLY REALLY want to delete the message from it first. I'm s...

Re: Gmail, IMAP, and Apple Mail question

I did notice that gmail let me select IMAP without disabling POP. Boy, was that interesting. I think I'm fine with IMAP now. Maybe. We'll see. It's weird to see that gmail doesn't hold all my emails like it used to with POP. That's both good and bad, I suppose. I don't really need ALL those emails. ...

Re: Gmail, IMAP, and Apple Mail question

Thanks, Jaysen. I do have folders that are local (created On My Mac). I also wasn't thrilled with IMAP and Gmail a few years ago and reverted back to POP. But, I'm so tired of deleting all the emails off my iPhone all the time that I thought I'd give IMAP another try. I don't create folders for stor...

Re: Mozy or iDisk or DropBox .... ?

As for security, I'd say don't store anything on any cloud service that you can't afford to lose either by going out of business or hackers. While either is probably unlikely, it's still something to consider. That said, I could also argue that email such as gmail is cloud based and there might be s...

Gmail, IMAP, and Apple Mail question

Okay, so I finally decided to move one of my gmail accounts from POP to IMAP (I know, I know... should have done it all along). My question is, what happens when I delete the old POP acct? Will it delete all my folders and old emails I've saved in the Apple Mail client? Apple Mail warns that it will...

Re: Snowflake method?

I love Randy's method. In fact, it's what got me through a major revision on one book, and I've used it in part on another. I think my plot lines are much improved for it. I used Scrivener with the second book. I used a combination of cork board and a folder inside the research folder to outline. I ...

Paper size wrong

For whatever odd reason, Scrivener insists on formating the paper size as 'other' and a weird size. I change it to US letter. Everything is fine. When I start scriv the next day, it's right back to that weird size. Is there someplace I can force it to stay US Letter in Novel format? ETA: this only h...
