Re: Curio 5

This is one area where, once you get comfortable with the tools, it makes things like Skim and Acrobat feel like dinosaurs. yes, but what about the longevity of the Curio data format? All this sounds nice for whatever you need to get over with quickly. But as soon as you need to archive your result...

Re: What is CCAttributionShareAlike.xmp all about?

Hmm, this is getting stranger every time I try it. After much testing, this is what I can up with after running this on three different Macs: A) Intel iMac running Leopard B) Intel MacBook running Tiger C) G4 Powerbook running Tiger Setting the pdf was carried out using Textmate and TeXShop, respect...

Re: What is CCAttributionShareAlike.xmp all about?

Ah, I see, thanks for the clarification.

Any idea why the same procedure might produce an identical loking pdf but without links on my second computer (running Tiger if that matters)?

What is CCAttributionShareAlike.xmp all about?

Dear all I am finally getting MMD to work. Thus far, I am playing around with the MMD sample file from fletcher's website. The only difficulty I am not able to work out is that upon typesetting the LaTeX file using Textmate this error message pops up. Latex Error: ./zzz.tex:70 Package xmpincl Error:...

Re: DevonThinking...

Alexandra,
before shelling out the money for Foxtrot, take a look at EasyFind.

It is Freeware and rather powerful. Not knowing exactly what you are after I can't say that it will be of help to you but certainly worth exploring the alternatives to a 100+ US $ purchase.

Hope this helps

Re: DevonThinking...

Problem of course: A lot of things fit in a lot of categories - and sometimes they are not where I am looking for them. Solution up to now: Spotlight and it's clever brother SpotInside (a Spotlight plus the ability to look within the files that meet the criteria). Devonthink features "Replican...

Re: DevonThinking...

Oh, one thing I forgot: There is no problem indexing german documents at all. The only thing to keep in mind is that the power of the "see also " feature drops somewhat if the most characteristic words that are used and weighted internally to classify the document are very different in all...

I'll give you a rough overview what I like using them for, perhaps that gives you some information what it is you want. Yojimbo - came bundled w...

Re: Tinderbox

Michael, you most certainly are anything but a fool. Considering how much I have learned from you, Amber and the generally enlightened ones, I am glad to have returned a favour. Actually, after writing the post above, it occured to me how much we have accepted that in our digital age the pace at whi...

Re: Tinderbox

Storage and cruft: yes yes yes to the entire 7Mb pdf for one quote... What I need is the actual quote, but then later on I need to know where it came from. Together will let you drag-and-drop a text section from any web page, and even if it's just a few lines, the URL is imported along with the tex...

programs with most surprising use

Hi all in analogy to the thread about programs you said goodbye to, I am curious about the programs that were of *unexpected* use to you. So, it is not so much about the programs that you grew used to simply because the purpose they were designed for suddenly started to make sense to you, but the pr...

Re: sync files between two computers

Prion-- It's a fat file. Rebecca Ok, so the external harddrive is using the FAT file system (it is not a file per se but it does not matter too much). This will give you time to check out if you like Chronosync until daylight saving hours are back. Nothing important just something to keep in mind f...

Re: sync files between two computers

Prion-- More questions. What is Mac HFS file system? Is that just where you re-format the drive, or is it something special? Every harddrive needs a so called filesystem, think of it as a certain kind of cupboard. They all serve the purpose of storing stuff for you but different models do that in s...
