Re: Magic Mouse - any good?

Twenty years of trackballs and you're thinking about a mouse? How curious. In my opinion, Apple has never made a good mouse. They have all been, in fact, dreadful for varying reasons. The Magic Mouse is no different. Yes, it has gestures; yes, it has touch-scrolling; but it is vanishingly small and ...

Re: Mac software for managing 10+ cross-referenced books?

Um, Joy? In essence you're requesting Scrivener to turn into FrameMaker. Please don't do that. Even if the work of resurrecting your old books is tedious, it's nothing compared to actually converting your old books to new books. Just run FrameMaker in a VM or whatever, produce the books, and make mo...

I'm not sure the two of you fully realize the utter incomprehensibility of this discussion.

Re: AMERICANS! Please help...

All this, and a big garden, makes it a bit easier living on writer/editor money for the past 30 years. That's what I suspected (sigh) but it doesn't sound as though this has been onerous. You've certainly made good energy-saving choices. So we're looking at the South side, yes? I was little worried...

Re: AMERICANS! Please help...

Well, I did build this house, all by myself with no adult supervision. And I used a s*tload of Tapcons to fasten cabinets and such to the concrete walls. If I could figure out how to post a picture without overly wrinkling my brow, I'd show yez. Ha! Wrinkle your brow and show us! Sounds neat. That ...

Okay. Thanks all! Okay, for the purposes of this draft at least, I'll make a virtue of the obscurity. ‘I’m serious, gents,’ says Easton. ‘There’s not going to be any kind of plea bargain on this one.

Re: Why do you design for Mac & port to Windows?

That's simply not true. Any piece of software can be mapped out in infinite detail to its most basic components in a language-independent fashion. If you have the budget of the Department of Defense. :lol: I don't think anything more need be said, here. Scrivener is a work of art, made for artists....

Re: Why do you design for Mac & port to Windows?

I imagine the original creator wasn't thinking about all that when he initially developed the software but it's probably time to do so now. I don't think so. This is immensely complex software, developed lovingly over the course of better than a decade with continuous criticism from writers, profes...

Re: Very difficult questions Re: Project workflow with Scrivener

The standard keyboard shortcut for showing/hiding the dock is Cmd-Opt-D. Are you using a macro utility perhaps that has remapped it? You can go into System Preferences/Keyboard/Shortcuts/Launchpad & Dock to see if the "official" shortcut is Cmd-Opt-D.

Re: Migrating Scrivener to a new machine

Migration Assistant should bring over everything. I'd just go ahead and do it, then check that everything's where it should be before you wipe the old machine.

Re: what's the new applejack

I'm running Yosemite on a late 2009 iMac with 4G of RAM. I've been running it since the earliest developer betas. I've upgraded the base system after golden master for the last 4 or 5 major updates with no special procedures. No problems. Text fine; video fine; web fine; sound fine; Photoshop et. al...

Well . . . he could be a fashion radical and start wearing sports coats again (complete with deep inner pockets).

Keyboard Maestro is hands down the best Mac macro utility. It is amazingly powerful.

OK, Jaysen, for once I'm going to request that you actually proofread what you write. Those of us who are enjoying this little bean-fest are agog at this sentence and wondering whether you actually mean it.
