Scrivener on Tiger now and forever

Dear Keith, Is there hope that Scrivener will continue working on Tiger still for some years? I ask this, because I'm a user of a very old PowerBook G3/400 'Pismo', that I would love to use for scrivening still for long. Why I don't buy a new notebook? The Pismo is the last Apple notebook using the ...

If the rumors are worth anything, some say Apple is working on a serious small notebook. I would love if it was true, since I've been waiting for something like this for years. Only, I hope it would have a better quality than the smaller Sony Vaio. Just yesterday I played with one of them, and was ...

Re: Two Macs

Werebear, Now I have a desktop mac for Scrivener, and my old iBook, just old enough to not be upgradeable to OS X I write mainly with a PowerBook G3/400 'Pismo' with 512MB of RAM, that is running Tiger 10.4.9 just fine. This model is from year 2000. Maybe your iBook can be upgraded, even if Apple do...

Greg, Thank you very much! I've been waiting for a new version of Power Structure for years, and this may be the response to my long wait. Working with your template is a bit different than working in PS, and obviously there aren't some of the features of PS (like parallel index cards and climax gra...

I must admit that the Target feature is most useful to participants to events like NaNoWriMo or the Scottish BBC equivalent, where you are asked to meet a word count target every day. Writers of reviews, like me, already have the character count at the bottom of the window, and it should be enough. ...

Keith,

I add my vote for this. In italy, too, we are asked for character count, rather than words.

Magazines always ask you a maximum length for a review, so this feature is useful to warn you when you have already reched the limit. Unfortunately, Scrivener does allow you to set targets in words. In Italy they ask you for a certain number of characters, so it is a shame Keith has not yet implemen...

Usually, my starting ideas are sketched up in restaurants, or on any piece of paper I can find when suddenly waking up at night. I have some preferred places where to write, like very quiet rustic restaurants on the nearby mountains, or a particularly scenografic 'osteria' on the promontory. I feel ...

Funny how the writing experience is different to different people. I find Full Screen mode extremely inspiring. That dark environment _is_ like my Linus blanket. Dark protects me from anything else. As for settings, I find that Keith already prepared the right mixture of orange/amber in the Preferen...

An intimate corner

Keith, In addition to the nice things that others have told you on Scrivener, I would say that I find it sort of the "small room under the roof" that Kafka was looking for to write far from any distraction. Scrivener can create intimacy with your text. No longer the other chapters on the w...
