Re: Tracking Changes, as per Word

The short answer is: you can't. Scrivener has no such function, and the chances of it ever having such a function are as near to zero as makes no odds. Though some people use it far beyond the initial stages, Scrivener is still first and foremost a drafting tool, designed to aid you in getting that ...

Re: Poll: What is your favorite website creation tool?

Amber: I only recently took the plunge myself. Coda 1.0 was, well, a 1.0 and I did the same; tried it out, wasn't bowled over (by the concept, yes, but not the result) and went back to my old methods. But I follow Panic news anyway, and when they announced 1.5, with a whole raft of fixes and improve...

Re: Product names in a book

No disclaimer or anything like it is required. However, as Matt says, don't even worry about it for now. Your publisher's legal dept will go over it, if necessary, before publication. So the first thing you must do is write the book and get it accepted somewhere :)

Re: Manuscript printing

Oh! I think I forgot to mention that I bought one. I'd settled on either the Brother HL-2030, or an HP... I can't remember the code. The HP equivalent, anyway. And while I was still debating which one to get, we visited the local Staples looking for something else completely, and what should greet u...

Re: Looking for blogging software

I'll second the recommendation of MarsEdit, though of course it's not actually what you were asking for - that is, it's a desktop app that allows you to write and post blog entries, not an actual blog system like Wordpress (which is what I use, but someone else set it up for me...).

Re: New poll: What's your favorite word processor?

Re InDesign, to be honest I haven't liked it since it launched, and I admit it's partly just because I was a hardcore Quark user for many years. Also, I never liked Illustrator to start with, so when ID came along with basically the same structure and UI, I was less than impressed. But I've ranted a...

Re: Poll: What is your favorite website creation tool?

I'm not quite as hardcore as Amber, but I am an old-school hand-coder. My first site was written in SimpleText, then I moved on to BBEdit, then - with the move to OSX - to TextEdit and SubEthaEdit. I now use Coda, because it combines the three apps I already used - SubEthaEdit, Transmit and Safari -...

Re: New poll: What's your favorite word processor?

Word, Pages and InDesign, but of those "favourite" only really applies to Pages. I use Word and InDesign because I have to, not because I like them ;)

I didn't think it was rude at all. The very first point in Keith's "BEFORE POSTING" sticky thread in this section asks people to use the search before asking a question.

Re: GTD

Jaysen, I think you've misunderstood; "GTD Fast" is the name of the course, and means simply that it's a primer, a quicker way to learn the principles of GTD than reading the book. It doesn't relate to the decisions being talked about :)

Re: Brian K Vaughan. Y:The Last Man

YTLM is indeed an excellent book (and its success was a big motivator for me when I was launching my own ongoing series). Nobody writes cliffhangers quite like Vaughan - which is no doubt why he was snapped up to write LOST a while ago :)

I knew that, but I didn't know how low-level stuff like text codes were, so I wasn't going to assume they were the same just in case OSX did something funky :)

Re: On Scrivener, Storymill and the value of Timelines

Cogs is already so last year, thanks to the updated OSX System Prefs icon. Lots of clocks would just be busy and ugly. (Sorry guys, but someone has to say it ;) ) Look at your dock, and what do you see? For the most part, clear, simple, iconic images. There's a lot of detail in some of them (Preview...

Re: Autohide menubar - LSUIPresentationMode

Sure, but it takes up, what, 20 pixels? And as it's always in the same place, always looks the same, etc etc., I wouldn't really call it a distraction. That's what full-screen mode is for, after all :)
