Screenplay Format

This is NOT a replacement for using screenwriting software. It's good for a commercial, or PSA, or a quick few scenes. Anything that only needs to get printed, and will not get integrated into a full blown production or interface with Final Draft. Uses Courier Prime which is available free: http://q...

You can download it here: http://quoteunquoteapps.com/courierprime/ The template uses the File > Properties window for all the relevant details. If you have an agent, put their name and add...

Killer tip for Yojimbo users.

One tip that I found to be particularly awesome is that you can grab a link to a document in Yojimbo and link it ...

Big Group Hug and Why Nisus Writer is Fabulous

So I’m all warm and fuzzy today because the book my producing partner and I started writing over a year ago released this week. The book start to finish was organized and written in Nisus Writer Pro which turned out to be flawless. The application never once crashed in spite of major manic abuse of ...

More clipboard tools - smart cut, smart copy.

These macros take the selected text and cut or copy to the next available clipboard that's not the number 1 clipboard. If the clipboard doesn't exist, it creates a new one. This code has been updated from its original based on Philip's suggestions below. Smart Copy # Copy and save to next empty clip...

Cool clipboard macro for selecting text from a clipboard

I have been looking for a way to make the fabulous multiple clipboards more useful and I think I hit on something good. This macro lists the first 60 characters from each clipboard in a list and then allows you to click on multiple choices to paste them in your document. If you don't want to paste j...

Re: Any chance of a full screen sans tool bar in Lion.

Thanks for the speedy response. Good tip about hiding the toolbar. In playing around I discovered that I can assign custom buttons to my custom macros - oh my gosh, that is so hot - I just turned the tool bar into something totally usable.

Have a great day.

Any chance of a full screen sans tool bar in Lion.

Thanks for the speedy ramp up to make NWP fully Lionized.

Sadly the new full screen mode now includes the tools bar. Judging from other apps it looks like this is a Lion thing. Would it be difficult to make the tool bar go away in full screen?

Have a great day.

Folks! I'm trying to use this macro and each time applescripteditor tells me it has a syntax error (something about finding 'while' instead of something else). Can someone help? Thanks! Hey there.
