Re: meeting notes

I can imagine using split screen to keep an overview outline or corkboard of meeting subjects in one screen while writing notes on the specific topic at hand in the other. Synopses could be used for summing up a decision, or describing the next action. Labels could identify topics needing followup. ...

Re: Note Blizzard

Well, I gotta say... I tried out Tinderbox. I even bought it. I surrender. You can do amazing stuff with that thing. But it must be one of the most geeky applications I have ever used. I seem to remember (Vermonter may correct me on this) that in another forum it was voted by general acclamation Mo...

Re: Note Blizzard

SlipBox has two main strong points: First, it encourages me to write proper notes and not just dump stuff that I never look at again. Second, the associative searches (SlipBox suggests slips - notes - that are related to the slip currently being displayed) means that it is much more likely that I w...

Re: Note Blizzard

It seem so me that Tinderbox is basically a program for structuring data; and applications like Evernote, Journler and all those are basically for storing everything . And I want something in between. Yeah. I know, I probably can't have it. I guess I still don't understand exactly what you're looki...

Re: Note Blizzard

I love Tinderbox and use it frequently for specific projects (as opposed to making it a home for all my notes). Hugh is right that it is frustrating at times, because it has so much power, but for most of us, I think, that power will remain untapped, because we don't have the skill, inclination or t...

Re: Note Blizzard

It's possible that I've misunderstood you, but it sounds to me as if you've defined the specification for Tinderbox -- or at least what Tinderbox could or should be if its learning curve wasn't exponential. That was my reaction, too, Hugh. Including your comment about learning curve, unfortunately....

I am very intrigued by this comment, but I'm unsure exactly what you mean. Would you elaborate a little? Thank you.

Re: Scrivener + MacBook Air = ♥

I have not named my MacBook, but the various Windows machines I've owned over the years have garnered various colorful and not-to-be-repeated-in-public appellations.

Re: Scrivener + MacBook Air = ♥

As a sort of hypothetical question, do you think it would be feasible to make a MBA 11" one's only computer, if 90% of the work you did was writing, researching and web-related work? If so, how would one handle storage of digital photos and archives? External hard drive?

Re: Whatever happened to the link to Stooryist on the links page

I don't see what the developers of Storyist have done that is wrong. I'm not saying they didn't take a few ideas from Scrivener (integrated cork board and outliner), but they've focused their application on novel writing and screenplays and have added plenty of features that set them apart from Scri...

Re: Does this happen in America (or elsewhere)?

In the food preparation industry, cut injuries are quite prevalent, as you can imagine. This requires the injured to wear non flesh coloured (dark blue) BandAids, so loss of same, will (should), be noticed by wearer, and a search for offending protective barrier can be started, and hopefully, it wi...

Re: Does this happen in America (or elsewhere)?

I can honestly say I've never experienced this problem. And I lived for 12 years in the five-college town of Burlington, Vermont, where there seemed to be a pizza joint on every block! I did one time find a Band Aid in my pizza -- needless to say I didn't order from that place again. Maybe that's wh...
