Re: Finding Papyrus Italic

Very disappointing! The only way I can see of getting a Papyrus Italic Font is to create one from Papyrus through not inexpensive software like Font Creator. The trial version wouldn't allow me to save a created font . . . obviously. So now I'm looking for a new font to use to write my novel. Can an...

Re: Finding Papyrus Italic

Hi,

Papyrus is, but not its Italic or Bold versions at least not in Snow Leopard. They would show up anyway wouldn't they wherever they were on the computer when I tried to highlight text and turn it into Italic . . . which I can't.

Finding Papyrus Italic

I'm just moved to Mac and set up my beloved novel in progress on Scrivener to find that my favourite font, Papyrus, so easy on the eye, doesn't come with an Italic or Bold version in the Mac fonts which is more than disappointing. Can anyway tell me where to get those fonts or e-mail them to me if y...

Re: Problems with layout and Corkboard

Thanks for your e-mails. I do not understand your command listed at the bottom. Perhaps you could clarify it. I do understand what you say about content; every scene in a chapter folder does have content, a full synopsis linked to it. But, if I click on the corkboard it is bare. Only when I go to th...

Problems with layout and Corkboard

I'm new to Scrivener and have just set up my draft novel similarly to the middle picture at the top of the home page i.e. with chapter folders filled with individual scenes. Now I want to provide a synopsis of each scene to see the story more clearly in the outliner or more likely the corkboard. But...

Re: Accidental Deletion

Wow Keith,

You've thought of everything!! Much safer than Word from the sound of things. I'll be glad to leave it behind. And your support is hard to beat. You got back to me in ten minutes:-)

Cheers

Accidental Deletion

I've just recently bought Scrivener and absolutely love what I see (it'll be even better when Keith brings out 2.0 with the facility for margin notes). I've loaded the latest draft of my current book to continue working on it. Elsewhere in the forum someone broached the subject of accidentally delet...

System Requirements for Scrivener

Hi, I'm a sad Windows user but would like to buy a cheap(!) second-hand Mac, probably Mac Mini, so I can use Scrivener and my budget is tight ... well none existent really!! Can people tell me what minimum RAM and processor they've used with Scrivener satisfactorily, I mean with it working at proper...

Cliches

StoryMill appears to have a cliche highlighter along with a word frequency counter. I would find these very useful in Scrivener to avoid cliches and repetition of words. Would that be a big job?
