Re: Final Draft

I was just, really, interested at the price difference and the reason for it. Scrivener is brilliant - so what makes FD worth 6 times as much?? I suspected it might be a matter of "industry standard" pricing but was just curious and this is probably the best place to ask people who would ...

Re: Questions about 2.0

I haven't checked the PDF linking thing, but with regards to your question about page mode, page mode is only an aesthetic feature which lays out your current document in paginated form on screen as opposed to the classic 'word processor' form. It has no effect on the final output of documents.

Re: Abandoned Scrivener 2 and returning to 1.5x

If you are experiencing a bug/crash it seems reasonable to do a search on the 'Bugs' forum to see if this is something that others have also experienced. If you go to the 'Bugs' forum, look at the top entry - it's even a sticky. I'm not having a go at you, please don't take it that way. It's just th...

Re: Hoist shortcut

You can create your own shortcut key to hoist/unhoist the binder. Just go to System Preferences, and in the 'Keyboard' section create a custom keypress for Scrivener. It's not quite what you are suggesting but it saves you having to navigate the menus :)

Re: Re-drafting anxieties

Hello all. This is the first time I have talked to/asked other writers for advice. So I really enjoy it when I write short stories, but lose patience when I have written the first draft :| . After that it feel like...almost like the excitement is over because I have written it and I know what happe...

Re: Amazon Kindle

My favourite Kindle experience was a few years back, when I was commuting home by train. The device was fairly new at this time, and it just so happened that the train was packed with librarians going to a national library convention downtown. That was a bit more... limelight than I ordinarily appr...

Re: Final Draft

Scrivener is, in some people's opinions, underpriced, although this has been raised before. The price of any given piece of software is set by the people who own it. FinalDraft is specifically geared towards scriptwriting and has become something of an industry standard. The people who wrote it deci...

Re: MacFamilyTree on sale at MacUpdate

Well, for what it's worth, I bought it ;-) Not sure I have a use for it right now, but I can see it as being a pretty useful tool to have in the back pocket when the need arises! One very useful feature in it is the automatic 'what was going on in the world' feature it provides for each individual y...

Re: Abandoned Scrivener 2 and returning to 1.5x

Hard to say whether you are alone in the strictest sense, but from my observations, personal use and forum browsing I'd say you were in a huge minority. The crashing on exit problem was fixed, by the way - have you downloaded the latest version? If you have a specific problem with importing a large ...

Re: MacFamilyTree on sale at MacUpdate

I have used MacFamilyTree in the past, as one of my relatives got the genealogy bug a while back and has been putting our (huge!) family tree into it. My impression was that it was pretty good at the time, and it seems to have some very powerful tools for tracking complex relationships.

Re: Two copies of document launch

Are the updated versions you post in response to threads like this mirrored into the main download Keith, or do you save them up and only update it every so often? The obsessive Scrivener compulsive in me urges me to search for, and obtain the various incremental updates but I have a feeling it's pr...
