Re: Features in Writer Pro, Writer's Diet, Word Counter

The statistics popup already counts instances of words. I don't even find it that much of a paradigm shift to offer more detailed lists of verbs, adjectives and such.

Re: Features in Writer Pro, Writer's Diet, Word Counter

In OS X 10.7, Apple introduced a new class called NSLinguisticTagger. This can find all parts of speech in a document, making it really easy to highlight all nouns or verbs in some text. Oh. That's interesting, since that's exactly what it sounds (and looks) like. And it's probably all that makes s...

Re: Features in Writer Pro, Writer's Diet, Word Counter

It says here that they are licensing Syntax Control to other developers: http://ia.net/blog/writer-pro/ (at the end of point 2.) I would love that in Scrivener, personally. It's the one reason why I'm even considering buying Writer Pro, because I'm writing in English, and it's not my first language....

Re: Scrivener for iOS will be 7+ ?

The views, as users, are infinite, or say that there are as many views as there are users. I do not blame Scrivener. I only regret that progress requires us to follow him. This is pathetic, this is revolting. And if anyone ever finds this sense, it is a lucky one. I dont want IOS 7, IOS 6 is enough...

Re: Where has the iOS Wish List Gone?

You have no way to measure accurately the abandonment of a product, except perhaps metrics involving paid upgrades via your own online store. In my own little world, I know of at least a dozen license holders, and I know that two-thirds of them have abandoned Scrivener because their workflow includ...

Re: A question about targets

It sounds as though you have added the 5,001 target to the chapter folder containing the documents that have a 1,000 word target each. When you do that, scrivenings will add all of those targets together. In Scrivenings, I had been looking at the project folder instead of the folder containing the ...

A question about targets

I've been using the targets function recently, and it's helping me a lot to stay on course. There's one thing I can't get to work quite right, though. In the outliner view, I'm currently looking at a story containing five chapters, each with a target of 1.000 words. In the targets-popup, I entered 5...

Re: A more comfy fullscreen mode

Unbelievable. Now it looks like Ulysses 3's fullscreen mode, and it took almost all of two minutes.

Thanks a bunch. Once again :D

A more comfy fullscreen mode

Hi everyone. My wish list for Scrivener keeps shrinking (thanks to help I got from this forum), so the things that are left (aside from the iOS version, just to beat that unborn horse a little more) are relatively trivial. One of the things still on it, is the fullscreen mode. Scrivener's implementa...

Re: Everyone should install f.lux

This is one of those programms that you get used to so fast, you forget it's there. And then the day comes when you reboot your Mac, f.lux shuts off, and your corneas burst into flames.

Re: iOS Update

I'm not sure if we've come out firm on iOS 7 being a requirement yet, but the fact is anything prior to that version requires us to roll our entire editor from scratch Umm, if this hasn't been decided yet, does that mean the text engine isn't implemented yet? And if so, does that mean that Scrivene...

Re: Connections between notes almost invisible

Connections use the default text colour for the board. Oh, didn't know that. Thanks. And thanks for taking the time to write up that tip, I'm just too thick to get it to work. I'll fiddle around with the text and background colors til it looks ok (I just feel at home in the old Tinderbox color sche...

Connections between notes almost invisible

This is probably something super trivial. The screenshot should explain the problem: The connections are there, but barely visible.
I don't know which setting I changed the wrong way, but I can't seem to find it. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Question about importing synopsis into Scrivener

Perfect. I'm pleasantly surprised by Scapple. I already own Curio and Tinderbox, so I didn't think Scapple would add anything new, but it does: ease of use. Not that Curio or (at a basic level) Tinderbox are that complicated to use, but Scapple is so focused on getting your thoughts on paper that it...
