I use Tinderbox mostly. Okay, it's on a project basis, but my work generally involves collecting information, gutting it, then, most importantly, mapping the connections. Very different from, for example, fiction writing. So the workflow is (1) Whatever I fancy clipping/dumping the stuff into in the...

Replies: 37

My feeling is that while iTunes has clearly externally-defined source-lists -- Library, ITMS, Playlists etc -- Scrivener doesn't. Which means I'm all for it if we can edit the titles. If we can't edit the titles, I'm against it. So I suppose, to me, the titles you choose are irrelevant because if I ...

What Michael means is that a Beta version of Scrivener 1.1 is already available for download Yes... I just noticed I was using a beta. I think I am becoming too laconic. My previous forum posts in the last 24 hours (not just to this one) go: "MMD?" "It already is." "Not in ...

It is very hard for anyone to help you with this because we really have no idea what's going on. All I can suggest is, first, make a fresh backup of your disk. Second, run a utility like Onyx and tell it to rebuild Spotlight database. Fourth, make sure Spotlight is indexing everywhere it could be fo...

.. I guess my question is whether people have experienced "freezing" problems like this, whether it is problematic to keep a lot of PDF files in the projects... I have had occasions when it has slowed down while loading a bi-i-i-g PDF (i.e. one where they'd not had the sense to streamline...

...I think Turabian usage is so esoteric that it will only be relevant to few... Pretty much the standard (a slight variant on Chicago) for, particularly, undergraduate stuff in the humanities. So not *that* irrelevant :? But, agreed, people get monstrously hung up on this stuff, which, after all, ...

The Question of First (Or Any) Drafts...

On another topic entirely... Personally, it's always how I've done things in first drafts anyway, as I've said before. Ah. Now we're opening a whole new can of ball game. First Drafts, eh? Well, do you know, I'm not so sure I even DO first drafts. I think what I do is sort of generally fanny about g...

Well I have come VERY late to all this, although I have been lurking. I've been trying to work out why, against everything I might have predicted, I like inline notes/comments, and *love* Ghost Mode. I think it's because I write in two schools. The first is the academic, where footnotes other than s...

A question mal posée . "Creative non-fiction" is the nearest thing to what I do. Hard to avoid category bloat, isn't it? It's like those things from Camden Council which say "What is your racial identity (this is what you feel yourself to be, not how others describe you)?" Very ...

Opening folders as Scrivenings: wonderful. Problem (bug? intentional?) is, reclicking on the SAME folder with the modifier down (or not, depending on your Prefs) doesn't then open that folder as outline/corkboard. You have to click another folder -- any other folder -- then go back to the one you're...
