Just downloaded the Beta version and will play with and break it in a few days.
What I would like is skins. Change the appearance of the interface.
No good reason, it would just entertain me. Each project has a changeable skin. A sci fi writer has a 1930s science fiction interface. A horror writer has one with Hammer horror and similar styles interface. You get the message.
Such an interface would amuse us as we sit in front of the screen avoiding Wikipedia, Google News and the other distractions we refuse ourselves.
“Skins” is a very non-OS X thing. In any case, you can already choose the background colour for the binder, the text view, the notes view, the index card, whether the index card has lines on it, the background colour of the outliner, the background image or colour of the corkboard… And then you can save your preferences and load up different preferences if you so wish. So, to all intents and purposes, Scrivener already has “skins” - at least as far as possible on OS X without hacking the interface to look like something completely non-Mac.
Could there be a way to save these preferences into a “skin file” that users can share? That way they could download the settings [aka skin file] and just load them without having to go and actually set each setting.
I guess I am asking if the settings preference file can be saved outside the SCR package and then shared with other users?
[Like Photoshop level settings and actions. You save the preference file wherever you wish and when you wish to load the settings you point to an outside pref file?]
