Re: Maint for Leopard? (making sure I've got this right...)

Coming to OSX from Slackware Linux (which is insanely locked down) and later Ubuntu Linux (which uses the sudo no root account combo), I've wondered the benefits of having a separate admin account given that you need to type your password to do any major damage (or can this be disabled?) Just curiou...

If you like Ulysses' Fullscreen mode, I think you'll love Megazoomer (at http://ianhenderson.org/megazoomer.html). Install the necessary components and you have the same feature in all your apps.


Wow. Thanks! Now I can have this feature in Scrivener as well. Cool.

Re: Ulysses 1.6

I like the fullscreen mode (which is different from the console mode - which is like Scrivener's full-screen mode). The application window zooms to fill your screen obscuring the dock and menubar.

Re: Script mode and Screenplay menu

In recent versions you do select a letter - in fact, you can choose the keyboard shortcut that gets applied yourself via the Script Settings panel. (The next update might also have a separate submenu within the Scriptwriting menu that allows you to use cmd-opt-1 - 0 to select elements without havin...

Re: Script mode and Screenplay menu

Actually, the keyboard shortcuts are pretty similar to the way Final Draft does it and, as you say, it becomes almost muscle memory after using it for awhile. Also, when hitting enter after an element you are automatically brought to another element and you can then tab to get an alternate (like in ...

Re: Firefox 3.0

I like both browsers but prefer Safari. I just wish it had adblocking similar to Firefox. I was shocked to see ads in Gmail b/c I'd gotten so used to not seeing them with the Customize Google extension in Firefox. I've tried Pith Helmet for Safari and it worked until very recently... I still spend m...

Re: Easy Task Manager

I feel crazy fro going back to OmniFocus but it the only one that feels right to me. Probably b/c I used Kinkless as my first "GTD" experience. I could never grasp iGTD as it always felt overwhelming. I do like Things quite a bit but for some reason I like OmniFocus more.

Re: ZigVersion and other ways of backing up parts of a project

Keith,
From what I've read on the dropbox forums. The 2GB beta account is yours to keep for free and there will be paid upgrades if you need more space.

Re: ZigVersion and other ways of backing up parts of a project

My webhost allows for setting up svn (and I'm sure most do). So, maybe KB's webhost may offer this as well. He'd then just need to set up the connection from his machine to the server. But, as I mentioned previously, I'm pretty clueless when it comes to SVN.

Re: ZigVersion and other ways of backing up parts of a project

Well, I actually know a couple of people using dropbox for coding (not sure if jaysen was referring to my suggestion as one of the non-readers). SVN is great as long as you don't have to maintain the actual server (in my opinion at least). Obviously, SVN has much more granular control but if you're...

Re: ZigVersion and other ways of backing up parts of a project

I can send you an invite to dropbox (or others on the forum possibly could as well). It handles revisions and you won't have to set up your own subversion server. Let me know.

Re: Getting organized

I really liked dejumble at first but the more I used it the more annoying it became. I like Things a lot more. The only good thing I can see in dejumble is the upcoming ability to have online access/sync with dejumble.com which would be good for me while at the day job.
