Re: Scrivener Mind Map facility (not importing)

On one hand I agree with you. For instance in the current Microsoft Word, I merely use a set of features no different to the functions I was using in Word 95. i.e. everything just adds to the size of the program, at least from my range of needs. But, in the case of adding a MindMapping view, I think...

Scrivener Mind Map facility (not importing)

Searching this forum, I see that I, and many others, have asked Keith for a MindMap importing feature - and Keith's no answer explained that importing was problematic because of irregularities in the standard files. Then what if we omit importing - but rather, in addition to the VIEW mode, CORKBOARD...

Oh, I see see. That's great! Any chance of more video tutorials that explain these nuanced features? :lol:

visual indicator-link between binder and corkboard/

If wish there was a visual link between the binder and the corkboard (in its various view options), so that if we click a portion in the corkboard, this correlates to a similar visual indicator in the binder. e.g. now, when we click on a card in the corkboard, that card becomes rimmed with a blur ri...

Re: Scrivener 2.0 - Coming Soon (No, Really)

It's 31st October. Go ahead, Keith, make my day. Gosh, Scrivener users are a remarkably patient lot. I seem to be the only one willing to tar the forum on the last day of October with an impatient post, whereas other seem to just chafe in silence. I think everyone likes Keith too much to pummel him ...

Re: The status of the next update and 2.0

If Scrivener 2.0 is likely to be released on October 2010, shouldn't the beta's be ready for us to play with around about now? Or are we merely getting beta's in October 2010?

Re: Wrap Long Binder Item Titles

I mean that the left-hand column is the binder. The right-hand column contains the synopsis. The middle column contains the title and synopsis. I would hope that the content of this middle column can wrap. Right now, the title cannot wrap, although the synopsis can. I was hoping the title can wrap. ...

Re: Wrap Long Binder Item Titles

Oh, I misunderstood it then when you said version 2 would have wrappable headers. Keith, if you can't provide wrapping in the left-column binder, can you at least provide wrapping in the middle-column when in outline mode. I'll give you an example, and I'll use the global warming line of reasoning. ...

Re: Wrap Long Binder Item Titles

I second the suggestion to allow binder-titles in the left column to wrap. The way I (would like to) use Scrivener is to use the Binder titles as a summary of the FLOW OF ARGUMENT -- as opposed to just a title that indicates the content within. This is difficult if the binder titles do not flow. At ...

Re: The status of the next update and 2.0

Hi Keith When are version 2 public Beta's likely to be available? Regarding risks in using Beta's, is it mostly that the program could crash -- or is there a risk of data files being irreparably corrupted? If the former, that's fine, but if the latter, I might stay away from the Beta for my professi...

Re: The status of the next update and 2.0

Hi Keith, no problem about paying for the 2.0 upgrade (assuming there's a discount for existing users). Just one request: This Spring, I'm taking a sabbatical to focus on writing the book that'll define my lifetime achievement. Any chance of Scrivener 2.0 coming out before then so I can use it to wr...

If you didn't like my implementation idea, then you should keep searching for a better way of implementing the end-goal. No, I shouldn't - not if I think the end-goal isn't something I particularly want to implement or see as especially important. Please see the "BEFORE POSTING" sticky at...

if you have the folder closed, there will be nothing to highlight. Moreover, I think having two highlights in the binder - one to show selection and the other to show the location of the document in Edit Scrivenings - would be visually confusing and possibly even against the HIG. I don't think two ...
