.For my movie to succeed, it is not necessary that his movie fail. I totally agree. Which is why I've really tried to give constructive advice. To quote from my favorite scene in Say Anything... Nice! Although in a forum about Hollywood screenwriting, you may want to go with: "I don't want to ...

You think you're getting the last word? Feh.

I have a strong competitive sense that's telling me to say "It doesn't matter what your script looks like, as long as it's creative -- feel free to submit a handwritten script in Farsi. With drawings." Because, y'know, more for me, right? I recall some CG movie coming out at the same time...

I've just come back to this thread (after being locked away finishing a draft...) and I just want to clarify the point I made about Final Draft which sort of hijacked the thread in my absence. Apart from the relatively very few people who make a living -- or any money at all -- as screenwriters, wha...

Hmm, but if you are appending it to a particular document, wouldn't you be better off using the clipping service? I tend to clip stuff to the scratchpad, dicker about with it, jot notes, then send it off to whatever doc. I'm currently thinking about. Sometimes I'll be making a sort of recension of ...

Sticky "append to" in Scratchpad and Edit>Appen

I don't know about others, but I tend to clip to a given location more often than to multiple ones. That's to say, I'll have focus on a document called, say, "Sworn-brotherhood and Edward II" and I'll be gathering stuff on the Scratchpad and appending it to that document. Currently, I have...

Annotations | Round trip Scr. -> Word -> Scr. fails

Here's the desired scenario : I work in Scrivener. When the time comes I export to an RTF file and my editor annotates it in Word. (Yes, yes, I know. Publishers. What can I tell you?) He sends the Word file back, I bring it into Scrivener and carry on. Here's the reality : My Scr. annotations go ove...

Clipping via Services - small tweak?

I find I am using the Append Selection service a lot. Very handy, and better (I think) than creating a whole swathe of new clippings all called Clipping [9 Feb 2007, 13:08] or whatever. Append Selection already looks like it puts a <return> between clippings, so it's already brighter than a lot of a...

Enhanced breasts aren't deep down inside. And spaces surrounding em dashes are wrong. And I like Force Save. It sounds sort of, you know, brutal .

I didn't understand any of the follow-up posts.

Actually I didn't understand the initial post.

Why? When is a version of Scrivener going to be released which solves my incomprehension problems? THIS IS YOUR FAULT, BLOUNT. So FIX IT.

I suspect the reason DevonAgent works while Safari & DevonThink don't (all three are WebKit, after all) is that, when you drag a search result from Agent into Scrivener, what you are actually doing is dragging a PATH to DevonAgent's own temporary WebArchive (stored in /tmp/DevonAgent), rather th...
