Re: Ulysses reborn

Congrats to them. I bought my first Mac because of Ulysses and will definitely play with 2.0, even though I'm a convicted Scrivener by now with one book under my belt.

Re: System Requirements for Scrivener

I used Scrivener on that exact Mac Mini and on a 12" iBook with very similar specs, and it was just fine. It's not a resource hog.

Re: Table of Content

Sort of. You can make a TOC without page numbers by exporting without body text and then pasting that at the beginning of your full export. My editor found this to be good enough. But if you want page numbers, you'll need to use your word processor, page layout program, or LaTeX. (Unless I'm wrong a...

Re: Collaborating with Scrivener

In my opinion, there is no good way to do this. Eventually, in the future (i.e. three years from now), when storing stuff on your own hard drive is seen as the equivalent of storing a big bundle of cash under your mattress (maybe not the best analogy), this will be trivial. Today, I'd figure out whi...

Re: Drag and drop?

Highlight the text you want to drag. Hover the mouse pointer over it. Hold down the mouse button and drag the text to its new location.

Did you try this? What went wrong?

Re: New macbook, which one to buy?

The low-end Macbook is a real bargain--great hardware, low price, just happens to look like last year's model. The aluminum model looks great, but for a writer, it doesn't really offer any killer features. However, when it came time to spring for a new laptop, I went with a different option: a marke...

Re: Google Docs transfer = spacing madness

Have you tried doing as Save As to Word or RTF from Google Docs and then dragging the resulting file into Scrivener? I don't know if it would work any better than cut and paste, but it's worth a shot.

Re: Scrivener Wiki

This would be a good place for a list of books written in Scrivener. I am too modest to start it myself. :)

Re: Working off of network drives (MobileMe; DropBox...)

Thanks for this, Amber. I stored a couple of small projects on Dropbox without any trouble, but I won't do it again.

Re: Syncing !

Have you tried Dropbox, J75? It works beautifully with Scrivener. Many people here use it just to sync backups, but I've used it with live Scrivener package files (though, admittedly, never my most important project) and never had a problem.

Re: Dust Jackets

Good question, PJS. Personally, I'm much looking forward to jettisoning most of my library and going digital, but the day is not yet at hand.

Re: Keyboard

We've had at least one huge keyboard thread with everyone offering their favorites. Here it is. As for your requirements, though, the only keyboard I know of that puts all of those keys in the same place as on the MBP is the Apple wireless keyboard, which is almost exactly the same as the MBP keyboa...

Re: Evernote's New Sync Feature & Scrivener

Dropbox. It's free, works great, and will definitely handle your dissertation fine. It's not right for large-scale backups, but a single big project, no problem.
