Re: How I write on iPad

On the Mac, with my Das Keyboard, I write about 65wpm in English. On the iPad, with the onscreen keyboard, I type about 40wpm. (On the Mac, I can type about 80wpm in Italian.) However, the tests were different, and I cannot have my preferred keyboard layout on the iPad. The English used for the iPad...

Re: Mac versus Windows

It's only me, who finds that the standard Mac command shell is more powerful that Window's shell?

Re: Mac versus Windows

My laptop Mac is still an Early 2008 MacBook Pro. During the whole month of October I used it exclusively, working in InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop. Slow, but it worked great. If I had replaced the internal drive with an SSD, it would have probably also worked fast. This computer has followed me ...

Keith, I can't wait to read your opinion after the launch of Apple's 15" iPhone 7++.

See what happens? I find being able to open other applications while writing hinders my productivity! :)

Re: Scrivener for iOS - When?

Have found using the iPad with a separate keyboard to be a chore, especially when having to touch the screen for editing, formatting, etc. Well, I'm not using the iPad+keyboard for refining/formatting my documents. I'm using it as a modern typewriter. A pure word-processor. So, all I need is choosi...

Re: Scrivener for iOS - When?

Isn't a MBA (or a rMBP) easier to use and carry around than an iPad with an external keyboard? What I like more about the iPad, is how versatile it is. It can be a book, a draft manuscript for corrections and annotations, a big screen wifi phone, a portable typewriter for typing onscreen when const...

Re: Scrivener for iOS - When?

Keith, I hope the title bar can be hidden as well. After WriteRoom went out, no iOS text editor has offered this feature, at least not in as smart a way as WriteRoom did. For example, Nebulous Notes has it, but the "binder" and title bar have their own color, different than the text backgr...

Re: Scrivener for iOS - When?

An external keyboard is an answer. Another one is that fewer lines mean less distraction. Like, in an old electric typewriter, or in the iAWriter's focus mode.

Re: Nisus comments

Jenny, there is a macro, in the Nisus web site, converting comments to inline notes. This might be what you are looking for.

Re: Word Wrap Scrivenings in Binder

Titles aren't supposed to be long synopsis are they? There isn't a single way of writing titles. Some of us may prefer writing something like "Chapter 1" or "Scene 2". Some other, for example myself while developing a draft, would put there something meaningful like: "Sofia...

Re: Word Wrap Scrivenings in Binder

A difference between Scrivener and Ulysses III is how they use the "binder". While Ulysses shows the first lines of the document (that might contain a title, if you want), Scrivener shows the document's title, reserving the Synopsis area of the Inspector to the document's synopsis. I would...

Re: SCRIVENER AS A WORD PROCESSOR

I always remember to save a copy in Word. Because, if don't do this, I'm sure my MS would vanish forever.
