Re: Macbook Air and large Scrivener files

I'm going to try to re-activate this thread with another question. I'm still thinking about this. I hope some of you more experienced folks will be kind enough to help me think it through. My question: Is the screen on the 11 inch mba big enough for software such as Curio, Aeon Timeline and Flowing ...

Re: Scrivener for iOS - What Do You Want? [PLEASE READ FIRST]

My wish list for an iPad Scrivener is simple: 1. Sync through Dropbox so that I don't even know it's happening. 2. The binder. Ie, be able to replicate a project from the computer to the iPad. 3. The three views: index cards, outline, document. 4. Full-screen view. 5. Allow annotations, highlights &...

Re: Macbook Air and large Scrivener files

This information is very helpful and I think you a lot. I think I'm too indecisive to do anything right now. I keep circling: I like the one I have ... an iPad-sized computer would be great ... why would I want to spend a thousand dollars on a cross grade ... the 13" macbook pro is actually che...

Re: Macbook Air and large Scrivener files

Thanks for the info. I've been thinking about this a lot -- thinking about buying a computer is actually more fun that buying one, at least for me; cheaper, too. I like the two computers I have. I know this will sound childish, is childish, but my Macbook, even after all these years, is still cute. ...

Re: Macbook Air and large Scrivener files

Thank you Ioa. Do you think that a quad core would be superior to a duo core when it comes to handling Scrivener and DevonThink Pro Office files? I do break my huge projects up into lots of small files, which sounds like it would push my laptop harder. Also, would an ssd drive speed opening and clos...

Macbook Air and large Scrivener files

Does anyone run large Scrivener projects on a Macbook Air? By large I mean projects that are 2 or 3 gb in size. Also, does anyone run huge Devon Think Pro Office files on one of these machines? Both my laptop and desktop will officially become obsolete when Mountain Lion is released. I don't plan to...

Re: Best way to sync multiple projects on many machines

I've been using Dropbox for years and never had any problems. I can't say that about many things.

Re: Keeping track of research documents...yeah, again.

I don't know if this will be useful, but Aperture allows you to batch change dates quite easily. Since you've used an liked iPhoto, it might be what you need.

Re: Lion: First Impressions

I guess this is First Impressions, Redux. I sat up last night after I posted here and organized Launchpad. It took hours, but it's now a fitting replacement for Overflow on both computers. I also sort of rearranged the furniture and dusted off the knicks knacks in Lion so that it now feels more like...

Re: Lion: First Impressions

I just got around to installing Lion last night. I have older computers so I'm missing the full zing of being able to swipe my way through things. My Macbook will do a little bit of it, but not much. My Mac Pro doesn't have bluetooth and I'm not excited enough by Lion to change that. I am underwhelm...

Re: help!

i've been mulling over what everyone has written, trying to decide what fits me and what doesn't. i most certainly do have a bee in my bonnet in the sense that this book (and the other two as well) are something i'm aching to express. as to finding research that refutes my premise, that hasn't happe...

help!

I need help. Or at least commiseration. I’ve been trying to write a nonfiction book for what seems like forever. I began with one book, then, as I processed through the research, I decided I had two books, after a lot more work, I broke it into three, which is where it seems to be resting.] I’m tryi...

Re: Two FileMaker Half-price Offers

Sheets looks like a useful, inexpensive, flat file database. it would be all I'd ever need for running a writing business. I like it better than bento because bento, while it's improving, is still not so much a database as an organizer. The major weakness in bento is its lack of search options. For ...
