This poll runs for two full weeks. You may select your next highest priority for 3 choices - assuming you have made your top priority choice in the previous poll titled:
USER POLL -WHAT FEATURE DO YOU WANT FIRST AFTER RELEASE?



You can change your vote at anytime during the next two weeks.

"Sync with Simplenote"

Is it possible to vote for Sync with Evernote?

I'm not familiar with Simplenote - so am unable to make a vote on this ...

Prior to using Scrivener I used Onenote primarily because I could use the auto-sync facility and move between PC and laptop with the assistance of a flashdrive, knowing my work would be synched correctly, and by default give me three copies in case of "you know what".

Would it be possible for something similar to be added to Scrivener?

Otherwise, of the choices given, I have no strong feelings in any direction.....

you can get this behavior by storing your Scrivener (and OneNote) folders on Dropbox (http://db.tt/HLZTgog)

What I would really like is help with academic work flow through integration with a referencing programme. I use Menderly (http://www.mendeley.com) which has a published API for this purpose but Bibtex would be just as useful.

Interesting. I will look into Menderly. I've used Bibtex before as part of a LaTex suite. Not sure about timings but Scrivener as a serious academic writing app most definitely needs to cater for this type of thing.

As a novel writer, what I really, really, passionately would like to be able to list frequently used phrases, to check for over-use.
For instance, it might say:
"at that moment" = 45 instances
and I could go "whoops!" and go to each in turn, and change some of them to something else.

I also wanted to be able to change the background screen colour when writing - thank-you for that!

Actually, any consideration for creating the capability to sync with Google Docs? Thanks.

Hello - I am one of the academic writers you mentioned concerning BibTex - although as a Windows user I use Endnote. So that would be good.
My other priority (my 'first') would be a freeform corkboard for laying out the order of text. If I have a variety of 'topics' (one for each card) each one may have a variety of 'dependencies' - a list of other topics that must be covered first (perhaps colour coded). I need to organize these in a valid order.
There are various algorithms for this: e.g. take a topic (card) with no dependencies and put it in the first row; cross out all dependency flags to _this_ topic in the remaining cards; take another topic with no dependencies and put it the second row; repeat until all cards are done.
(It is probably better to take _all_ topics with no dependencies each time, not just one: the result is like a solitaire game, with many rows of different length on the corkboard.)
This would fit with what my wall looks like when I get going. All I really need is to have a standard corkboard where I can have independent rows of differing lengths.
Thanks for listening! I am awestruck by what you have achieved in such a short time.

Aye, it's a solution, but I've no interest in using things like dropbox ....

I'd like the ability to chose a new font colour for editing.

I would like a "scene" label added in the drop down where "chapter" is, in the inspector. With a different color.

You can press 'Edit' at the bottom of the list and add it yourself.

Being as it is that I am always asking for a second helping at the dinner table, I would like to add a word of praise for all the hard work that has gone into this project and ask for:

I love the Name Generator. I only wish it had two more features: a way to enter my own new names, and a way to get first name and last name from the same nationality. As it is, now, I have to name my Aleuts with a Scandinavian first name and Aleut last name, or vice versa. Thanks!

Or, on a similar note, some kind of collaboration function that will let me work on a document at the same time that a co-writer is working on it?
