Re: Drafts

You can take named snapshots of all the documents in the draft and call them first draft. Then use the compare function while editing.

... and removed from the manual? In the manual for v. 3 the quoted text does not appear on the pages mentioned (p122 and p313) or anywhere else that I can see.

Re: scapple development

I can see the utility of a Scapple Binder. In lieu of such, I've found it useful to keep related scapples together in the Finder and open them all in tabs, whereby the tab field works as a "binder".

Weird behaviour when opening PDF on iPad

Three times I've brought this up without getting any answer or explanation. So, I'll try once more with illustrations. 1. I open a PDF in the Files App. 2. I make some annotation. (fig. 1 shows what the PDF looks like in Files App on my iPad). 3. I open the annotated PDF in Scrivener iOS (fig. 2 sho...

Re: How to connect background shapes (that have notes in them)

Select the relevant background shapes (click in one of the shapes outside the notes, and then Cmd-Click the second one). Then use the commands under Notes, or the corresponding key combinations you find there.

Re: Inserting a photo in comments

If you have one image that refers to, illustrates or inspires a certain scene, you can also put it in the Synopsis, where you can choose between showing a text or an image.

Scrivener iOS doesn't work with iOS Files app. (But MacOS do. Weird!)

I have posted this before as a technical question. But perhaps it is more of a bug, why I post it again in this forum. If I open a PDF in the Files App and make some notes on it with the Pencil and then copy the document to Scrivener or import it from inside a project, the scribbled notes do not tur...

Re: Feature Requests / Suggestions

Just a small tweak I'd find helpful. In Scrivener, if I've copied a link in Safari and then go back to Scrivener to insert the link in a text, I press Cmd-L, and the saved link is magically inserted in the text-box or whatever it is called. I just press Enter, and the link is in place. In Scapple I'...

Annotate PDF in iOS Files App

If I open a PDF in the Files App and make some notes on it with the Pencil and then copy the document to Scrivener or import it from inside a project, the scribbled notes do not turn up in Scrivener iOS. But they are there when i open the same PDF (after having synced with DB) on my Mac. Seems a bit...

Re: Quick and dirty PDF annotation works on Mac, not iOS. Why?

Sorry to bump my own query. But, as it's soon been posted for a month, without any reaction, and the problem persists, I'm curious as to what causes it. As I said: Definitely not a deal-breaker, but somewhat of an annoyance. And Weird ... Especially the fact that the same PDF, once in Scrivener and ...

I share everyone's hopes for a Scapple on iOS app. But, as for reading Scapple files on my iPad, i go the PDF route – Export to PDF (Shift-Cmd-E).
