I remain a stumbling novice on my MacBook Pro, which I bought just for Scrivener.
Background: After finally working through Scrivener video tutorials, etc., it appeared that research (and completed chapters) for my novel were really far too advanced, comprehensive (18 page bibliography, 100s of pages of topic specific articles, outline topics, & the completed chapters) to use because it would take forever to do the keyword associations, etc., which are obviously one of the great Scrivener blessings.
Hence, I abandoned hope of all the great opportunities on Scrivener. However, I have a huge amount of dialogue written longhand which needs to be associated with chapters yet to be written.
Today, as I began to organize in Word new folders for these, it seemed that this could be a point where Scrivener could actually begin to benefit my work. When I clicked my Scrivener icon, up popped the notice of the Lion upgrade.
I don’t use Lion, usually Firefox, or sometimes Safari. I’ve read some of the posts about challenges folks here have had since they upgraded.
I would really appreciate any advice to this wooden head about whether or not, at this point in my work, it’s a good idea to install Lion. I just absolutely cannot endure yet another steep learning curve, or even an almost flat one. LOL (For crying out loud, now even my 10 y/o is helping me on the Mac!)
You all have been such a patient help in the past.
As usual, it seems my query is far longer than anyone else’s.
Much thanks in advance.
