Re: Scapple now has competitors: CmapTools & Mindomo.com (in 'Concept Map' mode)

I don't know if you would call it a "bug" but I have documents some very surprising ways that your (IMHO) extremely useful feature of "stacking" works in Scapple Windows, at least, here: http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=35688 So when time/energy a...

Re: Writing Keyboards

But the idea that we'll all be typing on glass in the near future is ludicrous. You have to have some tactile feedback to tell that your fingers are still on the home row, and that you tapped the right key. Only a physical keyboard can provide that. The proliferation of tablet keyboard cases is evi...

Re: Getting new Notes to Stack properly

Personally I really like stacks and find this functionality extremely useful, but with the initial default settingss that I get after 1st installing Scapple, (i.e. Center align??) I found this intensely confusing, because at first blush you don't get stacks EVER, except occasionally when the next r...

Re: Getting new Notes to Stack properly

Lunk, my only expectation was that Scapple would work as per the user guide. Currently Win version does not. Thanks again for describing how Mac version works.

Re: Getting new Notes to Stack properly

Hi Lunk, Thanks for your reply and for the info on how it works on a Mac. Based on the User Guide's description of Stack functionality: - I expect Scapple to automagically grow or shrink a list of Stacked notes, when notes are added or removed from the Stack. - When a Stacked Note is selected, if I ...

Re: Getting new Notes to Stack properly

Fwiw, in contradiction to the instructions, Control/Enter and Enter seem to have exactly the same effect. This is how it works for me as well in Windows Scapple. Pressing Control/Enter while a Stack is selected does not create a new Stacked note, it only creates a new note under but not part of the...

Re: Swype keyboard compatibility

Keith -

Thanks!

That fixed how the the formatting palette displays.

Going from portrait to landscape to portrait is still flaky, but frankly I don't plan on doing that often. And closing/reopening editor mode fixes it.

Swype keyboard compatibility

I just started using iOSScriv on my iPhone 5s, and am pleasantly surprised at how usable the small screen is. A big factor in the 5s usability is the Swype keyboard, which has really made my typing more effective. I don't think I would be able to use the 5s for long writing otherwise. But I have not...

I'd just like to second the OP.

IOS Scriv is amazing.

Re: iPad air, mini or pro?

The positioning of the navigation keys in relation to the right hand shift key is just too awkward for my hands and even after just a short typing session it causes a lot of discomfort when I have to reach for the shift with my right little finger. I also keep hitting the up arrow key or the forwar...

Re: I love Scrivener - but I'm too scared to use it

Maybe someday the devs will make Scrivener for Windows files the same as on Mac, i.e. tell the OS to treat them as a single file instead of a folder (like Outlook email files or MSOffice files). To add to MaryANason's post on this point, while I hesitate to speak on behalf of L&L Scrivener's de...

Re: The Legal Issues of Being Forced into using Dropbox

I want cloud capabilities beyond dropbox, because I don't like dropbox . Well, that's it in a nut shell. Don't hold your breath too long waiting for L&L to implement other cloud services. "Currently, there are no plans to add support for syncing with other cloud solutions such as iCloud or...

Re: The Legal Issues of Being Forced into using Dropbox

Your logic in this thread is similar to someone buying a car and then complaining about only being allowed to drive on roads. You should be allowed to drive where ever you want to go, and not only on roads built by someone else than the car company. LOL! I was going to make a similar point and then...

Re: What's in 1.9.5?

Thank you both for that information - very helpful. I did see the link to download the previous version again. I am a bit nervous about doing that in case I cause more difficulties - can you please tell me whether that will be like a 'clean install' (is that the right term?!) and wipe my settings e...
