Re: Indenting in the binder

Yes, these expectations come from omnioutliner, I think. I appreciate that they are different applications, and the presence of a Binder changes the story significantly. Nevertheless, as user, I am not thinking about these things... I am just doing what I'm doing. In omnioutliner you press return to...

Indenting in the binder

When I start a new document in the binder, I would often like to indent or "outdent" it before writing anything at all. Thus, I would like to press CMND & N and then CMND & CTRL & Right to "outdent" it, and then go ahead and start writing. But Scrivener wants me to st...

Re: Wishes for 1.2... not for 2.0...

Also... is OPML import for this release, or the 2.0 release?

Re: Scrivener and Procrastinantion

Not scrivener, but you could try Freedom. It disables your internet etc for a time of your specification. There's no way (that I know of) to reenable these before the time expires, short of rebooting.

Maybe that'll do most of what you are looking for?

Re: Features of Scrivener 2

I'm wondering when there'll be OPML import. I gather that it has already been implemented somewhere, but not I think in any released version (I have 1.12 beta). Will this be part of the next little upgrade or part of the paid upgrade? I'd like to think the former (not because I don't want to pay for...

Re: Kind of 'hoist' command for the binder

For what its worth, I'd like to see something like a hoist command too. When working with a complex document, the binder becomes overcrowded and it becomes difficult to focus on the bits you are working on. Perhaps another way of achieving this would be to allow the use of colours in the binder, so ...

Re: Navigating between documents in full screen mode

Brilliant.
I'll admit... I hated your first idea: too cumbersome.
But I love your second idea, and I've made it my own.
Thanks very much for it.

Navigating between documents in full screen mode

This is probably a case of me missing the obvious, but I can't find any way to move from one document to the next or previous one in full screen mode, without exiting full screen mode, going to the binder, picking the document I want and going back into full screen mode. I know (of course) about the...

Re: Complete beginner needs referencing help

Well, I hope someone with some genuine knowledge comes along and supplements this response with a decent answer, but in the meantime, to get you going... I use bibliography software called Bookends. In that you get together your bibliography file. You can (I think) import your existing Endnote data....

Re: Voice recording

Alright...I've found a handy lightweight recorder. It's called REC and you can find it (if you so wish, of course) on the Apple.com audio downloads page. Free. It saves in aif or wav.
Seems ok.

Re: Voice recording

Alas, that appears to be a "Pro" only feature of Quicktime. It's greyed out, and the word "pro" is beside it.
Thanks anyway,

Re: Voice recording

A related question.... (not really part of a wish list, but following on from the previous post)... What application allows for simple voice recording? I know that I could use Audacity, or Garageband, or Omnioutliner. But is there a simple recording application. There is one in the Gnome Desktop Env...

Voice recording

I don't know if this has been considered, but would it be handy to have a voice recording option in Scrivener such as is found in Omnioutliner Pro? It can happen (at least it does to me) that one gets tired of typing, but would like to input an idea or comment. In Omnioutliner, you can record a voic...

The description "edit scrivenings"

Right... this isn't really a technical matter, but it might be a bug (a small one). It is this: the term "edit scrivenings" leads one, unconsciously, to seek the option on the "edit" menu. I don't imagine that I'm the only one who makes this mistake repeatedly. It is, of course, ...
