Re: Tinderbox reads Scrivener files

It's very useful and I imagine there'll presently be some degree of round-tripping possible. Lovely.

Re: Yet another request to generate markdown

I may have whined about this elsewhere but Marked previews -- brilliantly -- the ENTIRE Scriv. project. No way I can see to make it simply preview the document which has focus in Scrivener. Damn.

Re: Advantages of Lion

I've been using Lion since that's what my new-ish (mid 2011) Air requires. It's fine apart from the very ill-thought-out replacement of "Save as...." with the clumsy "Duplicate" followed by "Save", another facet of the damn-fool Autosave function which Keith mentioned. ...

Re: FinalDraft 9 is coming

Word is not until early 2013 at the soonest. Given Final Draft's history... *shrugs*. Word is also that it will mainly focus on collaborative features. Maybe even using this new-fangle Intrawebs which I hear the got it on computers now, for Pete sake. Who collaborates anywise? Me, the guy says "...

Re: Vellum for Mac (previously "TheBoard") - feedback wanted

Just noticed Vellum yesterday. ("Vellum" sounds a bit formal, calligraphic, maybe antique and illuminated, to me. My immediate thoughts are "Scribblit" which echoes Scrivener and Lit&Latte & the "scribble" points more to its informality. "StorySurge" s...

Quick reference - add a shortcut?

Very often, I can see, in the binder, a document I want to Quick Reference. Currently my options are: (1) Click on it and it appears in an editor and then I hit <space> and it appears as a quick reference page... and then I need to make it got AWAY from the editor in which it's appeared. (2) As (1) ...

Re: Screenplay Lost Formatting

I've had this happen, too. Everything in General Text (I wish one could edit THAT format) but the spacing and margins fine. Alternatively, the document loses track of the fact it's in scriptwriting format; hitting cmd-8 restores it as it should be. I don't remember this kind of thing before 2.0; may...
