Re: Welcome to the Windows Member of the L&L Team

Great stuff you guys! I teach courses on scientific writing and in "The Zen of..." sub-forum I recently wrote the following: "The resulting reduction in cognitive burden is staggering - merely pointing my students in Scrivener's direction will probably help them more as writers than e...

Re: How to beat depression

Yes I have enjoyed your contributions too Nom. The only major thing I disagree with is the position your statements endorse, that the only perspective on depression is one that views it as a disease. In saying that I speak as a scientist myself, as someone for whom depression is almost unimaginable ...

Re: How to beat depression

This article from the journal "Molecular Psychiatry" provides a alternative perspective on depression: http://www.nature.com/mp/journal/v14/n8/pdf/mp200944a.pdf which I try to explain in simpler language in an article I wrote about some related research done at the institute I work at: &qu...

Re: Minglish (mangling English for professionals)

I agree totally that it's a confusing term - and maybe that accounts for its popularity with the companies that use it.

Re: Minglish (mangling English for professionals)

You might already know this, but I think pre-ordering usually refers to situations where the company does not yet have stock to supply, usually because the item is a new model still in production. Perhaps they can't even give the customer a guarantee when or even if it ever will become available. In...

Re: organizing a course

Thanks, David, I dont know any programming at all, so its even more beyond me. But now that I understand whats needed - in the general sense - I can ask the computing guys at work for help. Ive played around with the compile as web archive method in Scriv, and while it does it require using an inter...

Re: Template for non-fiction

Templates may come into play at every level of text organisation. Template-based approaches have been suggested for everything from the paragraph (e.g. the "compare and contrast" pattern, one of the "text structures" taught in many US schools) right up to the text as a whole (e.g...

Re: organizing a course

Ive tried the scripts and they would help but... Ive noticed that the html that is copied via those scripts does not capture the names of any of the images that are embedded in the Scrivener file. For me thats a critical problem, since I promote visual outlining approaches heavily in my course, and ...

Re: organizing a course

Thanks for this idea!! Yet another use for Scriv! But I have some questions Im hoping some people may have answers for. I run courses/workshops on how to write scientific papers, in which the participants work through online readings and exercises. The course is quite extensive, and Im always remode...

Re: Link vs. embed research files?

Yes there is a work-around for this, not exactly what you probably want, but it may be of use. I use it for inserting links to files that Scrivener currently doesnt import. Just create a Finder alias to a file of interest, then rename it with an extension that Scrivener likes (eg .jpg), transfer the...

Re: Does a thesis count?

Congrats Sarah, your advisors were pretty tough editors I'm sure, so that is another parallel with the commercial publishing game. I teach scientific writing (papers/theses/grants) at a research institute, and am very eager to hear how you used Scrivener for your thesis, if you can find time after y...
