Re: Scrivener Beta 3 now public

I have worked with S3 for several weeks and had no difficulties at all. The interface is familiar yet simple, and while the number of commands seem to have grown, finding what you need is easy, thanks to the Help menu and its Search command. Try it for something like Hide Invisibles. My current proj...

Re: Scrivener for iOS - When?

A long time earlier in this two-year thread, discussion arose about the use of the virtual keyboard in iOS or an external bluetooth keyboard. I just wanted to add that during beta testing I constantly used my Logitech Ultrathin keyboard and never had a bit of trouble. Unless the battery was running ...

Cute splash page, but I can't get any of the screencasts to work.
They just cycle back to the splash page. Oh well.....

Re: On Line Version??

I used to push for an online version of Scriv when Chromebooks first came out. I still use one for surfing and note-taking, but finally I decided to go for a low-cost Windows laptop and install the basic software I need: Chrome, Scrivener, 1Pass, Dropbox, Skype etc. Chrome also provides access to on...

Re: Scrivener Lite; i.e. Textwrangler:BBEdit

I've used Scrivener for a long time, on over a hundred projects, and I've never found the program to be all that complex. But that's because I use only about half of its features. I type, arrange, clip, split the screen, search for key phrases, and occasionally run the dreaded Compile. Recently I le...

Re: Struggling Beginner - how to delete & undo

Raff,

A little confusion here. You are filing under a Mac topic but indicate you're a Windows user.

On a Mac, use Cmd-Z to undo editing changes. There must be a Windows equivalent.

Just looked it up: Control-Z?

Good luck,

D.

Re: Yosemite

I got an e-mail from agilebits.com, urging me to upgrade to version 5. They did not explain that 5 runs only in Yosemite. By the time I realized their error, I was stuck with inoperative versions of 4/5. So I had to upgrade to Yosemite. I had wanted to wait for version 3 or 4, The installation proce...

Re: Notes+ for iPhone

Like I said, an ideal note taker would convert speech to text. Since iOS has that built it, hopefully it is coming. I'd like that for those ideas that come to me in the night. Dropvox: you speak, it records and saves to a file on Dropbox. Review voice notes when ready. http://www.irradiatedsoftware...

Re: Scrivener "Reader"

If you export a Scriv draft as a doc or docx file, You may then import (drag) it as a Google Docs file And then share. Editors make revisions or comments, Writers read, et voila, we have zee Scrivener Reader. I would be a lot more interested in Google integration Even though they will steal all my i...

Re: I'm Really Disappointed

Sorry, Druid, I'm not the one having any problems with Scrivener ( I was one of the windows beta testers. Since then, I'm totally addicted to it) philsanderson is the user having problems :wink: Eeep. Well, I hope that Phil finds my note helpful. As they say, no good deed goes unpunished. :shock:

Re: I'm Really Disappointed

Marta, You are getting excellent advice from RDG, so I won't adding anything more there. As you get more used to Scrivener, you might prefer not to use the Binder to contain so much information. The units there should just be chapter titles, though sometimes they might contain sub-document "bit...
