@kaa I'm about to integrate my iPad much more deeply into my workflow. It'll be interesting to see if I run into the same issues -- I fully expect this to be the case, only probably worse since I'm using the 6th generation basic iPad with the Logitech keyboard and no Pencil -- but I do have my eye on the smaller MacBooks, especially for when they get the new keyboard.
@kaa I find my 12.9” Pro (1st Gen) a nice complement to my laptop, rather than a replacement. The iPad and the pencil are a great replacement for marking up scripts and scores, taking rehearsal notes, sketching out ideas during design meetings, and easier to take out at the bar (the location of said meetings 🍺).
The laptop is way better for drafting, managing paperwork, sending out worknote emails (while referring to the rehearsal notes on the iPad), and programming arduino boards to make custom fixtures. 🤓
My use case is definitely not a common one though. :)
@jemostrom That wasn’t quite what I was getting at; for me each can do things that the other cannot do at all. The iPad is awesome during the “crunch time” of technical rehearsals. I’d never use a Mac in those cases; the alternative is a LittleLite, a legal pad, and pens.
Just as the alternative to the Mac for drafting is vellum, a straight edge, a scale rule, and pencils. 🤓
@Bruce for me it is not that I can't do it on one platform, I could but it would be more cumbersome/tiring/time consuming so I try to use the platform that works best. My current "project" is to continue to figure out what tools to use so that I have the same data available on all platform and choose which one to use depending on the task
@Bruce writing: plain text files but also Ulysses. Notes: Bear and DEVONthink. Files: combo of iCloud + my Synology + git. Mindmaps: iThoughts. Journal: DayOne. But since much of my work involves text files I can use different tools as long as I can sync files ... Git plays a big role there.
