Re: Possible Corrupted File--How do I resolve?

Also examine the project folder in Windows Explorer. Make sure that it has not been set to read-only.

Re: AMERICANS! Please help...

Here in the Puget Sound region of Washington state, the Honeycrisp variety is fairly popular as the go-to "eating" apple. Nobody eats Red Delicious because they may be red, but they're not delicious -- they're bland and mealy.

*This topic has been resolved* Changing opinion is adult behavior, and taking responsibility for ones actions (or writing) and apologizing if one later thinks some previous actions were bad is also adult behavior.

Re: (PISSED) New Scrivener 3 Prices/Discounts of Old and New Users -- Seriously???

Okay, so now that that is straight, thank you for clarifying. The link and info provided is helpful. It confirms the issue I thought this was. So it is "straightforward". So what? I ABSOLUTELY expect to receive the major overhaul equally, if not free, for the time I've invested and suppor...

Re: Can I change to a different template once I've assigned one?

A template is just a starting point for your new project -- once you've created that project, it has no further association to the template you based it off of. You can move folder and documents around, change settings, and generally do whatever you need to. My advice would be to create a new sample...

Re: Link Broken between Scrivener Documents and Program

If the containing folder was read-only and that setting inherited down to all of the files in the project, it makes complete sense. When you open a Scrivener project, several files get updated even if you change no content.

Re: Why the Update

Us Windows users have been waiting since Thanksgiving last year for the new version. Why are you devoting resourced to updating the old Windows version 1? My co-writer uses a Mac, I use Windows, Since last year we have not been able to use Scrivener. Now from my point of view I see programmers work...

Re: Compile Problems

The Drafts folder can be renamed, but there is still only a single folder that will contain your documents that can be compiled. Under what top-level folder in your project are the two documents that show up in search during compile? That's probably your re-named Drafts folder -- try creating additi...

Re: Why I don't trust Dropbox and what the Scrivener developer can do about it.

How robust is iCloud for Windows? Given the...stability...of past Apple software for Windows (not to mention life span; Apple is the only major company to kill Windows software faster than Microsoft these days), I would not want to trust Scrivener docs being synced cross-platform on iCloud. That's w...

Let me help clarify; I'm an IT professional that works with OneDrive every day. First, what OneDrive was 2 years ago and what it is now is very different. OneDrive (consumer) was the replacement for Windows Live Sync, which was a lovely tool. OneDrive for Business comes out of the acquisition of Gro...
