Clarify-it.com - Tinderbox 6 Exporting OPML to Scrivener
OPML is an open standard for transferring outline-type data between applications.  Scrivener can import OPML, allowing Tinderbox data to be exported to Scrivener. Format limitations: OPML is a plain text format. Text formatting, i.e. bold, underline, font face/colour, highlighting can't transfer via OPML, nor may Tinderbox links between notes.

This tutorial was made using Tinderbox v6.0.2 and Scrivener v2.3. The built-in templates referred to here are those shipping in Tinderbox v6.

Free: Notes App In The Mac’s Menubar | Mac360
Scribblet is a Menubar app which lets you type notes, not scribble notes.

The claim to fame with Scribblet is a memorable, though not quite accurate, name– and ease of use. Because it lives in the Menubar it’s available in any app with nothing more than a click.

Scribblet lets you use a keyboard shortcut, too, so it’s useful for Mac power users who disdain point and click. Notes can be organized within Scribblet’s drop down menu, too.

Why Your NAS is Slow - ChronoSync Tech Notes
The basic reason that you might not achieve optimal performance is that your Mac and your NAS do not speak the same language when it comes to storing files. Mac OS historically has had "special needs" when it comes to storing and managing files. This dates all the way back to the original Macintosh in 1984. While other filesystems would store little more than a filename and timestamp for each file, the Macintosh has always wanted to store much more. Information such as custom icon, color label, the character set used to name the file — even the location that the file appeared in a Finder window — were all stored with each file. This extra metadata was something other filesystems had no need to store and thus made no effort to accommodate. This always put Macintosh file storage at odds with the rest of the world.

CSV Touch
CSV Touch is a simple application for reading CSV files from a local cache on your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad. The first line in the CSV file should contain the column titles, and using that every row in the file is then treated as an item; you can sort the items, live search in them, and customize which columns should be visible and sortable.

You can also have live links inside your files which when clicked will open Safari, create a mail, or start a phone call; see Linking for more details about how to use this. Similarly, if you reference pictures stored on the web, you can see these inside CSV Touch.

Why Microsoft Word must Die - Charlie's Diary Oct 2013
Lots of possibly useful remarks re integration of work flow across different apps -- eg 225:

Fascinating rant against Word, thank you Charlie ...

I just felt impelled to jump in and comment on the few mentions of importing Word files into Adobe InDesign. There is some confusion. InDesign can easily handle and manage and often fix wonky styling in Word files *on import* via a basic familiarity with its Word Import Options dialog box. You can strip out all styling info, strip it out but keep local formatting (like bolds and itals), map Word styles to InDesign ones or even have the Word styles overwrite ID ones (for insane people). You can manage embedded art, page and section breaks, even tracked changes, all from the dialog box.

This summer I authored a whole title on lynda.com on this topic (Using Word and InDesign Together) and spent many weeks deep in the bowels of Word 2011/Mac and Word 2013/PC (whose interface is so pale it resembles the White Walkers) to work out all the final fussy bits I wasn't sure of. Along the way I discovered some useful style-related features of Word that few users are aware of, like the ability to show a color-coded number map of which styles (para and char) are used where in a doc, or being able to easily highlight all "direct formatting" (local overrides) of the same type throughout a doc at once and so easily fixed at once. -- see comment for url

CMAP: "Why do you use Microsoft Word?" - Charlie's Diary Nov 2013
Lots of interesting info re word processing apps, Markdown, cloud based collaboration, version control options etc -- eg comment 61 by Charlie -- 61:

If you're on a mac, one of the hidden gems in OSX (versions since 10.4, anyway) is a terminal utility called textutil. Textutil is basically a command line (scriptable) file conversion tool for word processing documents. And the formats it supports are: txt, rtf, rtfd, html, doc, docx, odt, wordml, and webarchive.

RTFD is an Apple embrace-and-extend of Microsoft's RTF: it's RTF in a directory (folder) with added image files. HTML in this case means conformant HTML 5, and it does a vastly better job of generating HTML from Word .doc files than Word itself does. ODT is OpenDoc, i.e. the format used by LibreOffice/OpenOffice, doc and docx are the Microsoft formats, and webarchive is Apple's container for HTML plus image files in a folder in a zip archive (as used by Safari/WebKit).

Tinderbox: note reviewer - Clarify-it.com
The idea here is that you have made a series of text notes and imported then into Tinderbox. Each note added has been tagged with one or more 'tags' in a Set-type user attribute. You now want a quick way to review the notes based on a given tag.
