Amber, are you saying that dragging the URL FROM the address bar in e.g. Safari TO the binder should automatically import an archive of that page? Because it doesn't. I have to (1) Hit Add Web Page (2) Drag the URL from the address bar (3) Clean up the duplicated http:// which Scr already pre-popula...

In book and high-end magazine publishing, writers write. The production department formats. Yup. Been on both sides of the fence, in both areas, and I can sum it up even more brutally: Amateurs format. Professionals write. Mind you, there's a fine old market in persuading people who want to be writ...

Un-making Scrivener Link

I think the Subject says it all. I make a Scrivener link & then I change my mind. How do I remove the link? Any ideas?

Scratch pad...????

There's a little window in the latest blog entry which seems to show a nifty-looking Scratch Pad. I don't have a nifty-looking Scratch Pad. I want one. How do I get one? Or I'll hold my breath 'til I go blue.

I think a couple of users would say that I can be cratchety too. :) My own tendency seems to be to say a little too quickly, "No, that doesn't fit in Scrivener," and then I think about it some more and put it in the next beta anyway As opposed to saying a little too quickly, "No, tha...

Sb4 - copy-and-paste to Entourage - underlines go haywire

I think the Subject: line says it all. Copy a whole chunk of text complete with underlines, italics etc. Paste into Entourage. The underlines are offset from the text they're meant to be underlining. NOTE this problem doesn't arise if you copy-and-paste into Word, Mellel, VoodooPad, DevonThink, Yoji...

Hello Michael and thank you for your post. From your post, I take it you are the British journalist, author of Big Babies et al? Whether that is you or not, good to have you on board. :) Um... er... (SHUFFLES FEET, COUGHS MODESTLY) that's me, yes. And you'll be the British genius, author of Scriven...

Cmd-Ctrl-A, Find Annotations... is what you are looking for. You can even isolate by annotation type if you use some sort of formalised label or tag method. As for hiding annotations, have a look at the FAQ, there are a few ways you can get around the inability to hide them in the text stream. Wow....

I have come even later to this thread, having missed out on much of the development of Scrivener, damn it. Too much work on hand. But I'm just starting on a new book & thinking about doing the drafting in Scrivener; it's looking good so far (though I wish there were a way to Search For Next Anno...
