To avoid distractions I sometimes write on a Brother AX-325 electric typewriter.

Just wondering if there are any plans for a version of Scrivener to work on this model?

It's quite simple to feed an old analogue (paper) index card into the system, but I was hoping for something a little more streamlined.

It's electric so I assume it has some sort of operating system (Linux? Maybe Mac OS 9? Or Window 3.1?)

Can anyone with tech "know-how" help me out with this? It looks something like this:

Oh look! You can see from that code dump that the typewriter version of Scrivener is written entirely in Apple's new open-source Musical Swift language. It has never been so easy to whistle up an app. Just put your lips together and blow.

:lol: If the likes of lunk, gr, nom, and Kingstonmike, couldn't put together a comedy scriptwriting team, to match that of SNL … I'll chew the hem of my manky welders' leather apron!
Thanks for the giggles/chuckles lads :lol: :wink:

If you are interested in knowing what the underlying Greek would be from the KJV (as reconstructed by F.H.A. Scrivener in 1894), this is a good resource.hulle6.com I found that the leather bound (black) edition to be most helpful for class work. The print quality, for the most part, is good with the exception that printing the verse numbers in bold so that they stand out from the rest of the text would have made searching easier. Of merit is the wide margins which leave ample room for commentary. With the student in mind, it is well worth the additional money to purchase the leather versions of your study guides--unless you enjoy suffering through the process of transferring notes from one book to another.
