Scrivener Easter Eggs?

Keith,

Are there any Scrivener Easter eggs? Being a Mac user since 1984 I miss the Apple Easter eggs, and those by others.

Keith, Congratulations on your new residence! I wish you and your family the best in your new move and acquisition. I respectfully suggest the DELL 2407WFP as a monitor selection. It provides a great deal for the money, and I have been impressed with Dell’s customer service. It also goes on sale f...

Tinderbox is wonderful, but needs more refinements to its mechanics, some of its GUI, and lacks any included beginners manual of substance—all this can easily be overcome and overlooked (in the case of the GUI) when time is spent delving into Tinderbox. However, the biggest Tinderbox constraint i...

My guess on the Mac Addict => Mac|Life thing is that they are trying to broaden their appeal to new Mac users. Mac|Life is now "domesticated." The best Mac magazines, since the demise and shift of MacWeek, are the European Mac magazines. I've decided against renewing my Mac|Life subscript...

Mac|Life July 2007 Review

The July 2007 issue of Mac|Life has a positive review of Scrivener 1.01 on page 60. I might just keep my subscription because of the review, but I am still miffed about the name change from Mac Addict to Mac|Life.

Midnight Inbox has won me over. Very elegant with two hardworking people behind it making a go of it.

As crazy as it sounds, I still prefer 'Bruce (high quality)' in OS 9 to any of the voices in OS X... including a few 'professional' ones. I'm hoping that will improve in Leopard but the truth is that I'm not holding my breath. Clea, You do not have to hold your breath...take an actual listen to Leo...

The Inevitable Strikes Again

We all knew this request would appear...it is only logical that Scrivener be made for the Windows platform. My only chagrin is that I have seen many a fine Apple application go by the wayside when the developer chose to make a Windows version. The success of Scrivener is obvious, and who am I to sel...

It is like the Apple keyboards of yore. My friend always swears by them. They are noisy so you do not want to be purchasing one if your spouse or significant other likes their sanity, at night, while you are pounding away at the keyboard (do not ask me why). A couple of keys do eventually go bad thr...

In addition, a personal predilection. It's so darned ugly . I mean ug-lee! T, When you get to know about Tinderbox, you will learn it is not at all about the looks. I do agree with you, visually it is a letdown from the opening screen, but it is so powerful that you quickly forget about its looks.
