Re: Embedding file links into a document

File links need to begin with this: file:///. The 3 slashes allow Windows to identify what kind of resource this is, and then use the full path to locate it, and then open it based on the type of file it is, e.g., a Word .docx file or Acrobat .pdf. Not exactly intuitive, but there it is.

Re: Keyboard Shortcut for "Empty Trash"

My guess would be Alt+P (Project menu), then E or Alt+E (Empty Trash...).

DottoTech shout out to Scrivener

I'm not really familiar with commentator Steve Dotto and his DottoTech vlog. But on the Evernote forums, in response to Evernote's dopey (IMHO) brand refresh hoopla, someone posted a link to Dotto's equally dissatisfied thoughts on it. At about 6:50, he asks why Evernote couldn't instead have offere...

Re: [2.9.0.8 beta] PDF import bug

Probably best to report this in the beta testing forum, where they are collecting all such.

Re: Letter Tracking with a Word Starting with Uppercase F

Could you post a screenshot? I just tested it and I don't see a problem. But I'm still on 1.9.7; and my perceptions may not be sensitive enough for this. In any case, though, Scrivener is not a desktop publishing program, and AFAIK isn't meant to be. Its final product, after all, is still called &qu...

Re: Document Notes Missing in Beta?

It might be most effective to post this in the beta-test forum: http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=57&sid=51026fb1f2fd55084d2bfc5f7838d98f. Everyone there is on top of what's going on in the beta; not everyone here is.

Re: Suggestions to make Scrivener a bit more predictable

As noted, Scrivener 3 will offer both project-level and Scrivener-wide settings. Why would you want editor settings to be global? Well, if you almost always write novels, or non-fiction books, or screenplays, it is quite likely that you will always want the same settings. Even if you personally don...

Boy, now there is some blatant Mac prejudice! :lol:

Re: Is it normal to have this much trouble importing web pages?

The bad news: this kind of experience is, unfortunately, absolutely normal for the current version of Scrivener for Windows, and has been for quite awhile. (See another recent thread here .) I believe it has something to do with Internet standards evolving past the framework on which Scriv relies. T...

Re: All Work Lost (with Screenshot)

Thanks, Devin. Something was itching at the back of my mind about .docx files actually being composite, but I didn't really know. Always appreciate it when actual knowledge shows up! And a PS: For any and all good that MS Office's .???X files do for the world, one more tip of the hat to the late, la...

Re: All Work Lost (with Screenshot)

I'm with ChaosKirin on this one and I appreciate your frustration because I've had this happen multiple times. I've also posted in the forum and contacted customer support. I've set up the auto-save and done as many of the suggestions that I could to fix this problem. But the pure simple fact is th...

Re: Scrivener's stopped opening Writing Tools - e.g. thesaurus.com

OK. I know nothing about Chrome. Except that it's from Google, and when anything goes wrong, my motto is "Blame Google First." :D Hopefully, someone who has more knowledge may chime in here with something useful.

Re: Scrivener's stopped opening Writing Tools - e.g. thesaurus.com

What browser do you use? I wonder if it may perhaps have updated recently and in some way broken the way that Scrivener expects to be able to call up sites.
