Re: Mighty Mouse

The Mighty Mouse is great. I couldn't live without it anymore... The only problem with the MM is that the trackball will need periodic cleaning, which is somewhat of a pain. It might be a good time to get a 23" Cinema Display -- the prices have dropped a lot -- but then again, I'll bet that Ap...

Well, yes, the option to have two monitors running will be nice too, of course. :) Thanks to all for the suggestions so far. I second the recommendation for the icekey -- it will make enough noise, Keith! And get the Griffin iCurve2 laptop stand so that the laptop display will be at height similar ...

I've just looked at this, and it turns out that when you drag a file out of DevonThink, it doesn't actually exist yet (probably because everything is kept in a custom database) - it gets created upon the drop. This is very difficult for Scrivener, as Scrivener expects the file to exist already. Hey...

I just checked on their forums, and discovered that this is a bug involving RTF files (not other types of files) which ...

dragging files to Scrivener

I'm new to Scrivener, and it looks very promising. However, I already have a lot of notes in DEVONThink Pro. While I could probably import all of those directly into Scrivener, what I'd like to be able to do would be to be able to drag selected notes directly to the "Research" folder in Sc...
