Re: Splashtop Remote. Scrivener on the IPad!

Sorry about the x2 posts, but I thought of another difference between Citrix and Splashtop. Citrix accesses my office computer from anywhere. If I understand it correctly, Splashtop is limited to my home network. I may be wrong about that, but if I'm right, that's an important difference. Citrix mig...

Re: Splashtop Remote. Scrivener on the IPad!

I tried this, and it works well, so far as connecting to my desktop is concerned. After using it, I have a question: I use Citrix with my work computers. In fact, that's the reason I have an iPad. Citrix, combined with the iPad, simplifies a lot of things on my job. Now I'm wondering if I could use ...

Re: bibliography manager for ipad

thanks for the replies. i looked at sente, and if i was at the beginning of this process, i'd certainly download the trial and probably buy it. however, given that i'm NOT at the beginning of this process, i think i'm going to wait and see what the bookends version for ipad looks like. if it's a flo...

bibliography manager for ipad

does anyone know of a bibliography manager for ipad? i'm looking for something that (ideally) will interface with bookends, which is my reference manager on my macs.

i could probably use filemaker for this, but i'd prefer something that i didn't have to take the time to create, if it's there.

Re: Looking for writing project tracking app

you're right: i was thinking of omnifocus to track tasks. that's how i use it.

i think i understand what you mean now. an app like the one you're describing would be very nice to have. are you thinking about creating one?

Re: Looking for writing project tracking app

I know I'm missing something here, but I keep thinking you could do this with a spreadsheet or filemaker. Also, as I said earlier, Omnifocus can be set up for any type of goal you want, and it syncs into iCal which will nag at you, if you want that. If you're looking for a way to reward and motivate...

Re: Looking for writing project tracking app

I use Omnifocus for planning and set reminders in iCal to nag me about my plans. I'm so serious about this that I re-do the whole plan if I miss a deadline (doesn't take all that long; these are simple plans.) I do this for any project I'm working on, not just writing projects. Bento will do the sam...

Re: Mellel

I bought Mellel back when I first switched to Macs because it came bundled with Bookends at a reduced price. I didn't like it at first and spent a lot of time looking for a replacement word processor to use for long documents that wouldn't roll over and make me crazy the way Word does. Long story sh...

Re: Note Blizzard

dtp is one of the two or three softwares that i use almost constantly. when it comes to vacuuming up info and then spitting it back out when you need it, it's the best. btw, i sent your cucumber video to several of my friends (all female) they said ... well ... it's not repeatable here. let's just s...

Re: Note Blizzard

just a quick follow up. i tried simple note. it's great! i'll be using it for my notes on my iphone from now on. the sync with scrivener is the best! i've said it before, and i'll say it again: 2.0 (now 2.01) is a work of art. thanks for the idea about simple note and for this grrrrrreattttt softwar...

Re: Note Blizzard

ahem ... for those of us who have never/will never/don't want to learn how to write a line of code, i STILL recommend the "sorter's inbox" (had to look in the services menu to get its name) that comes gratis with devonthink. i have the pro office version of dt, and i'm not sure if the othe...

thanks

scrivener 2 is a work of art.

thank you for the hard work, thought and passion that must have gone into it.

i noticed that you fixed the problem with converting large projects. that's typical of the support scrivener has always had.

again, thank you for creating this remarkable tool for writers.
