Re: Recommendations for a book scanner?

I have some bound issues of Railway Age magazine from the 1950s which I'd like to scan. They're printed on a non-standard oversize (9" by 12") page format and have 26 weekly issues in each volume...over 1000 pages; very hard to open flat. I've had some success with using the book scanner ...

The OP is on a Mac, though. Then again, I'm not sure why this thread is in Using Scrivener ... Sorry if I put it in the wrong thread. But since I saw threads about what kind of music people listened to while using Scrivener, or what fonts they used I thought to ask about this topic in "Using S...

Re: What are the best tools for annotating and then extracting notes from PDFs for academic writing

When I first came across MarginNote and LiquidText I allowed myself to be seduced by the look of them, paid my money, and then hardly used them. There is one big problem with both of them (for my working method) and that is getting information out of them and into another program. Other software is...

Re: What are the best tools for annotating and then extracting notes from PDFs for academic writing

I use Papers 3 to both collect, read and annotate scientific articles. I then export the reference and annotations to a .txt file using an Apple script provided by the developer, import that as notes in Scapple if I need to play around with the structure, or import and split into Scrivener so each ...

Re: Importing MarginNotes 3 mindmaps

Hello. Just started to use MarginNotes 3 to annotate and generate mindmaps from my pdfs...is there a way to import them to Scrivener 3 so my outliner is ready to go? Thanks! I am also looking into MarginNotes 3. But learning curve looks daunting - poor documentation. Did you find a good source for ...

Re: THE FATE OF EMPIRES and SEARCH FOR SURVIVAL

One observation: it seems to me that no matter what other people say, what you reply with ends up sounding like you're more interested in the argument rather than the subject of the argument. Many people find this wearying. Where you addressing anyone in particular or just making a general observat...

Re: THE FATE OF EMPIRES and SEARCH FOR SURVIVAL

Then why do historians says "History repeats itself?" They don't. This is a general misconception. History researchers don't say this. About Glubb's writings, it suffers from two major errors: - The "civilizations" listed are subjectively chosen and do not cover all such "c...

Re: Music for writing

But in meantime I recently I stumbled across Didula , he is one of Russia's most popular musicians who I never heard of before. He is a guitar virtuoso who blends his training in Slavic music with Spanish Flamenco and techno style music leading to an interesting fusion. It tends to be melodic and u...

Re: THE FATE OF EMPIRES and SEARCH FOR SURVIVAL

It's probably also worth pointing out that no reputable historian says 'history repeats itself'. That sounds like a loaded statement.Who defines who the reputable historians are? Rather than say history repeats itself we could say: "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it...
