Re: What fonts do you use?

Libertine (of Wikipedia fame) was linked to above, but if you like those kinds of flared hybrid fonts you might like Biolinium, also from the Libertine project, or Optima, free with every Mac. They are low-key and very clean, but have that subtle quasi-serif feel to them. I like these kinds of font...

Re: What fonts do you use?

Regarding serif vs sans serif debate for online use. This series of comments on an Adobe forum covers both sides but the conclusions is that now with higher resolution screens the choice is up to the author. https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2287559 A relavant point made on that thread: "Almost a...

Re: What fonts do you use?

For titles and headings a sans serif font like Albertus, Friz-Quadrata or Alberta extra light. These are actually flared fonts and not strictly san serif.

For body text I currently use Baskerville, Palatino and Latin Modern Roman.

Re: How to use Scrivener to compile research

But really, if you export to .rtf and then import to Word at the end, all goes well. I do suggest you have a style called "heading one" for instance that is green, and one called "heading two" that is blue, and "block-quote" that is red, or whatever styles you use in w...

Re: Zotero integration please!!!

Well, the bookends manual is > 400pages so reading it for a quick solution may not always be, um, quick! :P ;-) The Bookends forum is fairly efficient (but low traffic), and Jon often replies within a day. It was the 58 page tutorial, considerably smaller. It works but it doesn't have the Citation ...

Re: Zotero integration please!!!

Installed Bookends. Created a test page with dummy text to place footnotes in. Command Y worked in both programs. I was able to compile it with Scrivener (wrong font came out but that is different problem), and Bookends scanned it quickely but there is absolutely no difference between the original ...

Re: Zotero integration please!!!

I would prefer to be writing than tracking down software bugs. :evil: Honestly: don't use Zotero. You get what you pay for, and Zotero is free/open source[1]. I do use Zotero to maintain a shared reference list with one collaborator, but it is painful to use compared to Bookends. Bookends was relea...

Re: Zotero integration please!!!

Indeed commercial tools like Scrivener comes with ample warnings about what it can and cannot do. So all software comes with limitations. But it is the case that when something doesn't work right in Bookends or Scrivener, I bug Jon or Keith, and they will fix it or tell me of an alternative route t...

Re: Zotero integration please!!!

I'm going to sidestep the whole "you get what you pay for" claim about open-source software and just point out that there are plenty of reasons besides price why someone might go with open source and be very happy with that choice (Pandoc, anyone?). On the other hand, it's also true that ...
