Re: Microsoft Word, XML and i4i

I think the whole confusion stems from the fact that patent issue is about something that MS calls "Custom XML", which isn't really XML. Precisely: "Custom XML." XML has its own built-in set of commands, then you customize from there. <hagfish></hagfish> (Excuse all the nautical...

Re: Microsoft Word, XML and i4i

I have an imperfect understanding of this, but it's the most thorough explanation I've yet seen. HTML is "HyperText Markup Language." You can write in HTML and a browser will display what you've written because everyone has agreed on exactly what commands are recognized in HTML. <head> <br...

Re: The status of the next update and 2.0

That's as may be, but not all of us have publishing deals with filmmakers lining up at the door yet. We don't have to actually [i]encourage[/i] him to raise the price. ;)

(What's going on with the BBCode?)

I love Scrivener, I'll happily pay the upgrade price, and Keith is great... but please stop encouraging him to raise the price. :eek:

Re: word count visible in the binder

Don't forget to click on the icon to the left of "Manuscript" and select "Lock in Place". That will prevent selections in the binder from replacing the outliner when you need to delve into the research section. And don't forget the arrow icon at the bottom of the outline's edito...

Re: word count visible in the binder

I think I see.
- Binder off.
- Layout > Split Horizontally.
- Select the manuscript, set it to outline view.

It could never replace the binder, not without the research and other folders visible. But that's ok: it works really well for what I'm trying to do just now.

Thanks!

Re: word count visible in the binder

That's almost exactly what I was looking to do. How'd you get it to do that?

Re: word count visible in the binder

Nope, didn't know I could do that with the outliner. After I saw your image, though, I started playing with it.

Found "Total Word Count" (thanks Keith) and sure enough it's what I was looking for. I had no idea that was there.

word count visible in the binder

I'm working on my manuscript, playing with the organization of chapters and their corresponding sub-sections. It's mostly because the word counts in each one are somewhat unbalanced. It's far easier to organize and pare the sections in Scrivener than it would be otherwise, but I was wondering how it...

Re: Bee Docs' Timeline + Scrivener integration...?

I've been checking out Aeon since posting this. There's some good potential there. But in the first few hours I found that: - Zoom doesn't zoom. - Events with a specified duration aren't discernable from those that sit as a point. - Events entered into the timeline don't necessarily display. - Took ...

Aeon Timeline's Eventual Pricetag

Reading the homepage I see that Aeon Timeline is to remain free until it hits v1.0, at which point old versions will stop working. I haven't been able to find what the envisioned price range is likely to be.

Any hints to where it will eventually fall?
