Re: Dust Jackets

They are one of life's great mysteries dust jackets. What are they for? I do keep them on the hard back books I have, but they look pretty shabby. I suppose you could say that if you remove the dust jackets then the book covers will start to look shabby themselves, but as you have to keep the dust j...

Re: AppleScript: what do you want to see in the Scrivener Suite?

Thanks druid and gr for putting me back in the way of thinking about Endnote :)

In the past when I've checked it out I've always dismissed it for what I was doing but it might be very suitable for my new project(s).

I'm going to check it out again and I'll also be looking at Bookends and Sente.

Re: AppleScript: what do you want to see in the Scrivener Suite?

Hi Derick I think that is very likely the route I will be taking. I can get DEVONthink to compile an output to RTF then import for example. The plan for this project which I've now started (while all around me wiser people are munching mince pies) is to keep a total bibliographic database, probably ...

Re: The DevonThink 2.0 Public Beta...

II don't see anything it does that EagleFiler doesn't (aside from the much-vaunted classification AI stuff, which has STILL never been useful for me) Well for me it is the much-vaunted classification AI stuff that makes it great :) If that is not of interest then DEVONthink is not for you.

Re: Scrivener - on USB!

Those look excellent.

I've always like the Scrivener logo, it's very clever imho.

(Reading this back now, what seemed kind of funny to me now seems kind of rude. Sorry, patrick. I'm actually enjoying my own experience with DTP 2 at the moment! :) ) That is no problem Sean :) Internet forums can often make that which is intended as humour go, er, funny.

Re: The DevonThink 2.0 Public Beta...

DEVONthink 2.0 is being received with much adulation from the users:

Incredible 2.0

I'm finding it to be quite excellent myself :)

Re: Could this replace Scrivener!?

Looks to me like it will replace Scrivener, Microsoft Word, Pages and all the other writing applications.

Re: How to be successful

There is only one way to really enjoy life. And that is to make an inner transformation from the life dominated by your ego-self to a life dominated by your true self. In metaphorical terms you have to be born again. Jesus was born by a virgin, Buddha was born from the left side of his mother at th...

Re: How to be successful

More of this mash up of theologies from Bob. The notion of true self is totally alien to Buddhism and absolutely contrary to the teachings of the Shakyamuni Buddha (the Shakyamuni Buddha being the historical Buddha that we tend to know of in the West who was an identifyable man in Northern India at ...

Re: AppleScript: what do you want to see in the Scrivener Suite?

It is still slated for a distant future release, though! I do find Scrivener to be most excellent indeed. It is great that the programmer is so helpful and responsive on these forums. I know that I would find the endless requests for this and that to get quite trying :) However this thread brings m...

Re: How to be successful

There are several things you could do. One is to realize that when people are telling mean things about you it's seldom because they are evil. More often then not, they are very unhappy people, who have low self confidence. Ah, those unhappy people with low self confidence, poor things! Another thi...

Re: How to be successful

Let's say that you hear that a wicked person has been spreading lies about you. And suppose that you are a very sensitive person, who cares deeply about what others think about you. The news makes you devastated. You enjoyment factor sinks below zero. What can you do right now that will increase yo...

Re: Italics in styles, adding new text, and forum search...

I think the preferences are a bit cluttered already and it is generally standard for a new document to go to the bottom, so no plans on changing this one - sorry. As an aside, I wonder if having an Advanced button in the preferences would be useful? With this a much simpler set of prefs could be di...

Re: Line Numbers?

I use a compressed datestamp which makes this easy. A while ago I had a similar idea for my footnotes system. The project I will soon be starting will be exported to Pages and so the built in Scrivener footnotes and annotations will not be supported for export. The plan is probably to use this form...
