A font like Wingdings or the like could work as well.

Re: Dropbox and other backup strategies.

How can you be really sure everything is really encrypted in a service like Dropbox? :shock: When I read these websites, I always imagine a bunch of system administrators amusing themselves by browsing the files of their clients. "Oh, look, he is trying to get another job." "Her love...

Re: Multiple Document Note Pages

One can even (via context menu) assign another icon to the "notes" document to make it visible as such in the binder.

Re: Using Scrivener for total work filing system

Why not simply start with a "kitchen sink project" as default entry point for everything that does not fit with an existing project? Nothing easier than, should one part of the binder tree grow large enough to justify its own project, to create one and drag it over there.

Re: Can I Live In Scrivener?

Instead of "living in one file" , you might like to consider "living in web of connected files" by using a master file that links into sub projects but is a kind of default landing place for any ideas, collections of random stuff and so on. I wrote about something I used to use f...

Re: Scapple + Scrivener: A suggestion

Maybe I'm misunderstanding your request, but if you have the Scapple document in your Scrivener Research folder, can you not just open it in Scapple (ie Open in External Editor) so that you now have both Scrivener and Scapple running, and arrange your windows in such a way that you can see the Scap...

Re: Scapple + Scrivener: A suggestion

Is this a question of OS X version? I'm using Snow Leopard (and have to stay there). Is the behaviour different among Lions?

I have to export somewhere to – and I don't dare to export into the Scrivener file package!! :shock:

Scapple + Scrivener: A suggestion

No, I don't want an "embedding" of Scapple maps into Scrivener's freeform boards. I wouldn't even know what to do with such a functionality. I would like something else, something simpler: That, when I have a scapple file in the research folder, somehow a graphic of it would be displayed i...

Re: Why nine year-olds, Dropbox and "All My Files" don't mix

9-year-old destroys father's company and harms the careers of millions of writers – experts predict severe shortage of novels in coming years!

would have been a nightmarish news headline, indeed. Glad the Guardians of Data prevented it from happening! :D

Re: Titles in Scrivenings - how?

Thanks! Found it indeed! :D

(BTW, the help file is not up to date in this point. I looked it up and became even more confused.)

Titles in Scrivenings - how?

I must have become blind … I worked for a long time with the "Separate scrivenings with single-line breaks". Now I have a situation where the standard behavior (line separator plus title) would be more useful – but I find myself lost in trying to resurrect these damned titles! It used to b...

Start-up behaviour

When Scapple starts up, it creates a new, empty document I have to close every time I rather call up one of the recent used documents. Could this be a preferences setting whether or not Scapple should create an empty document on start up? (Like in Scrivener.) Or maybe Scapple could, if my first acti...

Re: wish list for Scapple

A lot of such things can be done in a program like Curio . Which I possess. And which I don't really use exactly because its possibilities are distracting me from actual thinking every time. I always end up fiddling with lines and shapes and layers and backgrounds and attributes etc. etc. etc. inste...
