Show Skim annotations within Scrivener

It would be great if Scrivener could have the same ability as the new version of DevonThinkPro to show Skim annotations from within the program. In DTP, you edit a PDF stored in DTP externally in Skim but when you save it back into DTP the annotations are visible in the DTP viewer (makes use of Appl...

Problem with Skim notes from Scrivener

This is probably a Skim problem rather than Scrivener, but I've only experienced it when using Scrivener and post it here in case others have had the same problem and might know how to solve it. I have lots of PDF files saved within Scrivener databases. As recommended elsewhere on this Forum, I use ...

A very small suggestion

Just been using the keyword feature for the first time in earnest. It strikes me it would be more logical when you used the "Search" button on the keyword HUD for the resulting search to be limited to keywords, rather than defaulting to "All" as now. I know it's only one click-dr...

The little thing I'd like in Scrivener ...

... would be for the notes/references/keyword icons in the bar in the bottom right-hand corner to change slightly to indicate when there is some content for the document in question. Just finished a big research-heavy project, up against a silly deadline, and because you can only see one of these pa...

FWIW - I find (somewhat to my surprise) that I'm making very little use of new features in Leopard: - spotlight might be improved but I more often than not search on file names and have got addicted to LaunchBar in the meantime - the Coverflow view looks fun but I work with spreadsheets, word docs, ...

Exporting tables from Scrivener into Pages - help!

Has anyone figured out how to export Scrivener (1.11b3) documents containing tables in a way that they can be imported into Pages'08? I realise this is probably more of a Pages problem than a Scrivener one but thought someone here might have solved the same problem. Exporting either RTF or RTFD for ...

Just speaking with the local Apple Centre ( a reseller) - they put Leopard on one of the display machines (i.e. upgraded it from tiger) and it screwed up the hard drive good and proper - not yet back out of the sick bay. Their advice was go with Leopard by all means if it's a home machine, but for b...

Notes folder

Sorry to be an idiot, but - A couple of weeks ago I found out how to make dated/timed annotations in the text that linked to a note in the Notes Folder but I've subsequently forgotten how I did this. I seem to remember there was a keyboard shortcut that did this? I can't find anything in the Help fi...

Highlighter mode

I wish there was an option to use the Highlighter in a mode that more closely parallels the use of a highlighter in the real world. That is, I want to select a highlighter tool that highlights any text I drag it over in one simple action. That way your eyes don't leave the text you're reading. As it...

two other arguments for floating windows

sorry, meant to add these points to the previous post: - if the two windows were normal OSX windows, you could switch between them using the standard OSX shortcut (Cmnd-`) instead of having to use an instantly forgettable, four-finger-contorting combination - as well as putting the two editing windo...

Floating windows

Why do the two editing windows have to be locked together? I've got two screens and at present one is wasted when I used Scriv - it would be much better to be able to drag one of the editing windows onto the second screen. It would also be much easier to see which window was selected if they were no...
