Re: Better Footnote Integration

Actually, the anchor doesn't have to be the word. As the OP is on Mac, turn on "Project > Text Preferences… > Use Footnote Marker" and choose whatever character suits; the default is *, which is what I'm happy with. Then you can just select the marker, pick it up and move it anywhere else...

Re: Better Footnote Integration

Over the last decade the aspect ratio of computer screens has changed—they gained width and lost height. As computers to many people are more than just working machines this developement is understandable. The present screen aspect ratio is much better for watching movies. The one company that did n...

Re: Why do you design for Mac & port to Windows?

How would it be to put things into perspective? How would it be to recognize that the software industry in general seems to lack of white boards, permanent markers, and this $99 Visual Paradigm? L&L started as a one man company and is still very small. Can you name any other very small company t...

Special characters in Compile file names

When you compile and the filename contains an "ß" or umlauts, the file will get exported twice. One has "??" instead of the "ß" and the umlauts loose their röck döts and get some extra "??" instead. The second version has all characters correct. This goes for ...

Re: Import workable footnotes into Scrivener

Thanks for your replies. The RTF footnote problem I asked about actually is just a little aside problem I stumbled over when I tried importing different kinds of files into Scrivener . I did not know that there could be true and faux footnotes in RTF files. Or to be more precise: That there could be...

Re: Two series of footnotes

Scrivener has two seperate streams of footnotes: Inspector footnotes and inline footnotes. These allow you to easily keep your footnotes and the orginal author's footnotes distinct. While inspector footnotes are displayed in the inspector pane at the right, inline footnotes are, the name tells it a...

Import workable footnotes into Scrivener

I fear I do know the answer to my question already but there is some tiny bit of hope left that even as a long time Scrivener user I might just have overlooked something: Is there any way of importing a text with footnotes into Scrivener and keep the footnotes workable? What I mean is: When you impo...

Re: Mavericks?

I seem to be the only one here who is most excited about tags. And not only because the Mac Pro (or Pro-ish) is way out of my range of both electrical and financial power. OpenMeta tags were a great invention but always risky: They might just vanish with the next OS X update because OpenMeta was nev...

Re: My Scrivener anniversary

Dear Scriverina, I fooled you when I started this morning typing along as if it was just any day and not our day. Of course I did not forget our anniversary. How could I? Then again, this year's 9th of May indeed is different—no flowers for you. Instead I got this, see? This is a letter of confirmat...

Re: "Composition Mode…"

You mean they dropped the white "paper" on black background mode for the Lion full screen mode in the new version of Pages ? I would prefer to call the distraction free mode the eye friendly mode and because of that it is great for writing apps. Besides in Scrivener I do also use it in DEV...

Re: "Composition Mode…"

"Composition Mode" in my opinion works well for Scrivener , but it would be significantly better if all programs that have similar viewing modes formerly known as full screen used the same new term for it, say, Paper View Mode. And since it was Apple who got the nomenclature into a muddle,...

Re: How do I clear formatting (use styles)?

Try Edit/Paste and Match Style. This is the Mac OS X standard plain text pasting and has a keyboard shortcut linked to it too. It is just the strength of the Convert to command not to flatten any italics etc. as applying of a style would do. You might create a style a. k. a. preset—if you haven't do...
