Re: Draft Board or Scrapbook

How about putting the removed text into a comment? Then it would appear in the inspector pane when you were viewing the main text, with a visual indicator for each chunk removed.

Re: Thank you so much!

I can only send my congratulations, too. One less excuse for not writing. :)

And I agree, the small size of the Scrivener app is amazing. I am used to watching the little circle fill up very slowly, and this just zipped around.

My best to Keith and the whole team.

Re: Working with a large number of image files in Scrivener

I faced exactly the same problem. I have four large Scriv files (from 1.7 to 3.8 GB each) of a combination of jpg and pdf copies of historical documents, either jpegs taken with a digital camera or PDFs produced by a microfilm scanner. Originally I had my manuscript and my reference materials all in...

Re: Time Line component

Well, actually, I write history and I have used both Scapple and the custom meta-data in Scriv to track date-based information. In Scapple I have set up a grid with subjects across the top and months along the side to keep items of research (newspaper articles, archival records) in proper chronologi...

Re: Export Research Folder To Curio

I had a similar problem. I had the draft of my book in the same Scrivener project with an ever-increasing amount of reference materials, both jpegs and PDFs. I ended up moving the draft to another project, but keeping the reference material in Scrivener. That solved any slowdown problems. It also me...

Re: Scapple Beta - New Users Please Read

With you on this 100%, Keith. It is interesting that virtually all of the almost unanimously positive reviews and reactions to Scrivener remark on the amazing number of things that you can do with the program's various built-in features, but also that the features are well-integrated into the whole....

Yay! Many congratulations.

See the attached jpg for my first Scapple test. I started with a Yay! item and a Boo! item. Guess what, so far nothing in the Boo! column.
