select the first item on the corkboard by default. Yes, this would be sufficent. I noticed that in outline view, if you press the down-arrow, the first item gets selected out of nothing. So my workaround in the moment is: - I am in the binder. - ctrl-alt-cmd-E goes to the editor pane (in corkboard ...

Developping an outline using keyboard shortcuts

I have a question regarding the movements between the editor pane and the binder. Supposed I am in the early stage of deveolpment of a story. Let's say I use the command ctrl-alt-cmd-B to go to the binder, I move there around, shift documents in other places etc. and finally set the cursor to a fold...

I've experimented quite a lot with StoryView 2. It's an impressive piece of software with a loooot of clever functions that work all very well to create something... that's of no real use to a writer, at least IMHO and at least not if you write a novel. For a screenplay, maybe. If you're planning a ...

How do you use "Project Notes"?

(I'm not sure whether I post this in the right place or not. Feel free to move it.) I'm still in my honeymoon with Scrivener, discovering capabilities I didn't even imagine to search for. Yesterday, I discovered that you can switch between "Document Notes" (which stay with the current item...

Oh no! PLEASE no flashing icon !! :shock: I like the 3rd one in the lower row. The first gives the idea that there is an exchange, the second looks like Darth Vader, so you think "Hu??", but the third is good. Now that I found out how the Undo-function works... I lost a synopsis because I ...

Re: Meaning of ellipsis

In the outline window, the ellipsis is a non-destructive act that permits you to choose the display columns. Ellipsis in a menu means a non-destructive act where you will have a choice to choose or cancel. But in the Synopsis pane, the ellipsis clears the existing synopsis Yes, without warning you ...

Hello Andreas E. So will we find a short review of Scrivener on your "The best software for writers" web page? As soon as I've finished my switch from PC to Mac. To gather some practical experience before won't harm either. :wink: Viele Grüße von der nebligen (!) Atlantikküste Andreas E.

At the end of a long journey...

I am a German writer (although I'm living in France). I have published 14 books, mostly novels. My latest novel appeared two months ago and is currently among the top twenty of the bestseller list. This is what happened to me: I started using computers for writing in 1986, a PC with MS/DOS. I worked...

I was just thinking out loud and playing devil's advocate. I'm not really going to ditch two years of development to buy Vista and "Windows Programming for Dummies"... :) It was when I saw Vista for the first time that I decided to switch to the Mac. Where I found the most perfect writing...

I have used both WritePro Fiction and WritePro FictionMaster, but the German edition, that were FAR cheaper than the original versions are - around 30 Euros each. I have used only parts of the programs and I found them valuable lessons. But I'd say the most useful part of it is the first lesson of W...
