Re: More about plagiarism

Plagiarism is part of the reality of the world unfortunately. In this digital age it is nigh impossible to create and release anything that cannot be plagiarised, whether it's music (my main creative thing), writing, software, websites .. you name it. My view is that if you are good enough to create...

Re: New computer, a Mac of course

Well, the new Nvidia 330M graphics card is said to be significantly more powerful than the 320M, so go for that if you can. For counting from 1 to ten million in the fastest time, the Intel i7 CPU in the 17" is going to be better than the Intel Core 2 Duo offered in the 15" (which roughly ...

Re: backing up

zip error: Input file read failure (was zipping dissertation.scriv/Files/Docs/1747.jpg). Help? This message seems pretty explicit. Two things spring to mind. 1) Make sure you are trying with the latest version of Scriv (redownload the image, as Keith did fix some backup related issues recently) 2) ...

I found the faceless pics a while ago, but now I hear there are faces in there somewhere I too am on the hunt :)

Additional custom icons

For anyone who might be interested, I've done a bunch of Roman Numeral icons and a 'To Do' icon without a check in it. The post with them in is buried in another thread, so here is the link to it:

Re: Text size in outliner view

In the main preferences, there is an option to set the Outliner font to whatever you want.

Scrivener -> Preferences -> Appearance section :)

Re: I don't like it. :(

If anyone likes creating folder icons, they might make some us happy by creating several sets: * A Roman numeral set through perhaps XX. That'd handle book parts. I can't say I really like creating icons but I can see a use for the Roman numerals in particular, so here is a set from I - XX :) I've ...

Re: using annotations to manage revisions of scholarly book

I think you should have used the phrase 'Scholarly Tome', apart from that ... marvellous :)

I do something similar with my highlight colours when overhauling (or marking something to be overhauled later) my draft.

Newlines in filenames

I noticed you can use Alt-ENTER to insert newlines into filenames in the binder, apparently without issue. Is this deliberate? I got a little confused as I stumbled across it and ended up creating a two-line filename instead of renaming a file. I wanted to rename a file called 'xxxx' to 'xxxx yyyy' ...

Will this list include the delightful classic about Sir Francis Drake circumcising the world with a giant clipper? :oops:

Is 'Michael' a girl's name?

If it is, then ignore this post! If it isn't, then I think there is something in the word lists used by the name generator that suggests it is. I just generated 20 female names and one of them had the first name 'Michael'. I have all the include checkboxes unchecked in the options box :) Screen shot...

Re: Just curious...

It could be just 1. You. Had you discounted the possibility that all the rest of us are forged identities, all figments of Kevin's overactive imagination? I mean, I know he claims he's called Keith but I'm not so sure. My opinon should be taken with a large grain of salt as I might not exist! Conspi...

Re: DevonThink Pro and Personal on MacUpdate for 50% off

Duly bought. Again, it's something that I've heard enough good things about to warrant it being in the 'useful tools' category for when I need it. Thanks for the heads-up :) Also bought Adobe Photoshop CS5 today. I think I need to hide my wallet for a while 'somewhere safe' so I don't know where it ...
