- New interface (in preparation for Phase II of the program  development)
- Create new Scrapbooks to keep different work  sets
- Drag & drop batch conversion to import your existing  notes
- Drag & drop file and folder icons to create links  automatically

Q. WHAT IS THE SCRIPTER'S SCRAPBOOK?


A personal reference library database organiser of  your all code snippets, 
tips, links and supporting files with webpage publishing  and Internet access. 
Find out more at _www.FlexibleLeartning.com/ssbk.htm_ 
(http://www.FlexibleLeartning.com/ssbk.htm) .
 
 
Q. WHO IS IT FOR?
 
All scripters and programmers, all levels from novice to professional, all  
scripting languages.
 
 
Q. CAN I USE IT ON DIFFERENT PLATFORMS?
 
Yes. Your Scrapbook file is totally cross-platform. It  automatically adjust 
itself if you move or copy it, or import your  backup data between, platforms 
and computers, and v4 now more easily  supports multiple Scrapbook files if 
you wish to organise things that  way.
 
 
Q. CAN I EASILY INCLUDE MY EXISTING NOTES?
 
Yes. This version specifically supports drag and drop file-to-record  
conversion as well as drag and drop file/folder hyperlinks.
 
 
Q. HOW MUCH IS IT?
 
Free.
 


 
Q. IS IT ACTIVELY SUPPORTED?
 
Absolutely it is. And there is a built-in  bug/comment/request link to a 
tick-box form under the HELP menu.
 


 
Q. HOW DO I GET IT or UPGRADE?
 
- ALL EXISTING USERS
Whatever version you use (plugin for Rev, or standalone for  Mac, OSX or PC), 
please use the UPDATE in the 'ABOUT' screen. It checks your  existing setup 
automatically, is substantially faster than the new user options  below and it 
manages your existing files for you.
 
 
- NEW USERS
If you do not yet have The Scripter's Scrapbook (shame on  you!), you can 
choose...
- A plugIn version for Revolution or MC IDE users,  and/or
- An independent standAlone version for Mac OS9, Mac OSX  and Windows
