I registered just to agree with this. Once Scrivener has MMD/LaTeX support (a feature I'd also love to see soon), and if Mendeley support were to be built in, my academic workflow would be ideal. I don't know the details about the Mendeley API, but I'm sure if you're able to implement it, Scrivener would become much more appealing to me and some of my colleagues.

An integration with Mendeley (www.mendeley.com) would be fantastic. Een a drag and drop function would be helpful, if plug-in is to work intensive. Many thanks. D.

Does the "free form cork board" means we can move each scene freely? If so, that'll be so cool! But I'm worried it will just make us confused, though, if we don't keep everything in order. It can be useful, granted, especially with the way we can rant the scenes like a mind map. But if too complicated it'll just be troublesome.

The freeform corkboard is in a way like another view option--you can flip between it and the regular corkboard. Moving cards (ie, documents) in the freeform corkboard doesn't affect their place in the binder (or, consequently, in the regular corkboard or outliner) unless you specifically click a button to commit the order. In that case, the documents in the binder will be reordered according to criteria you select to match your freeform arrangement as much as possible, e.g. listing the cards starting at the top left and moving over and down. You can arrange cards in the freeform corkboard and leave them without committing their order, switching back to the regular corkboard or other views which still display the true binder arrangement, and then back to freeform without losing your custom arrangement.

So your binder organization always stays intact, and everything in the interface works as usual, but you get the additional option of special view where you can arrange a container's documents non-linearly. I find this a great place for brainstorming fiction, when I'm not ready to order things in list form yet but like to cluster related ideas as elements develop into scenes or events move around as I figure out how they're related. Freeform corkboard on the Mac works for viewing static Collections, too, so it's easy to pull together documents from all over your binder to view and move around together (without affecting their placement in the hierarchy).

I'm curious how the two polls ended up influencing the prioritization of the features listed. I'm pretty sure I can pick out items 1 and 2, but then it gets a bit murky. Personally, the only two features that matter to me (being a Mac + Windows version user) are the ones that allow me to continue to access and create multiple Project notes and inspector comments. I really prefer the inspector comments to in-line, but I can't have them at all if I edit the same documents on both platforms. It's a rough life I lead, having to do without two features that I have access to 90% of the time, but they do say writers must suffer for their art. :roll:

So. The short version: how did the polls line up feature priority?
Often wrong, rarely in doubt.
Time for a change... I'm now rdale; same dog-avatar, same dog... channel?

Metadata (incl. date and number format fields, and metadata included in search and sort criteria)
Customizable icons (presumably this isn't just about how they look, but would include, say, getting a one-click link to a specific file, or a collection, displayed in a selectable view (corkboard, scrivenings etc).
Free-form corkboard.

Please, please, please add this to the Windows version ASAP. Pretty please.
