Re: Citing and Referencing Resources

The way this is usually done with Scrivener is to paste in the temporary citation codes from your bibliography software, and then after you compile your project, run your bibliography scanner/formatter on the compiled document.

Re: Remove Space Before Line Break

Scrivener can already handle this for you automatically, folks. :) In your Compile settings, go to the Transformation section and activate the "Remove trailing whitespace from documents" option. Now you can ignore it while writing and still be assured that trailing whitespace will be remov...

Re: Zotero Plugin

Thanks for the heads up, @mijalce ! This new Zotero plugin is really fantastic, it requires a little work to install but really makes me happy. Dovepwsmith's Scrivener for academic writing with Zotero tutorial can walk you through getting started. The author recommends using pandoc (which actually ...

Re: Directly use CiteProc for citation and bibliographies

Automated citation formatting is in fact quite complicated. It is not just a matter of dropping a code library into an application's codebase and hitting the Build button in Xcode, even when using a simple word processor—and Scrivener is not a simple word processor. Scrivener uses multiple internal ...

Re: Scrivener for iOS - When?

I'll add my voice to the chorus of folks who have been disappointed with Textilus/Scrivo. I'm an academic writer, and so I use a lot of footnotes. Textilus cannot handle long footnotes. Not only does it refuse to let you write footnotes more than a few lines long, but it will truncate any long footn...

Re: The Crashers for Copies (or Even Cash!) Thread

Thanks, Keith. Creating another admin user and then wiping out my entire .GlobalPreferences.plist as those instructions suggested seemed a bit overkill to me (.GlobalPreferences.plist also tracks favourite Finder tags, user defined text replacements, mouse behaviour preferences, etc., etc.). But I f...

Re: The Crashers for Copies (or Even Cash!) Thread

Hello, Scrivener crashed on me. The following is a short description of what I was doing when Scrivener crashed: 1) Toggling between page view and normal view (Option-Shift-Command-P). This has happened numerous times now, as you can probably tell by the number of crash reports I have submitted in t...

Re: The Crashers for Copies (or Even Cash!) Thread

Bleh. That's annoying. Oh well, thanks anyway, Keith. I guess I'll stick with the "So, don't do that!" workaround until Apple gets around to fixing this. (Aside: One would think that with coffers so full and self-professed fanatical devotion to perfection, Apple would hire more coders to f...

You can define a custom keyboard shortcut for any menu item in any application by going to the Shortcuts tab of the Keyboard panel in System Preferences. See http://support.apple.com/kb/PH13916?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US EDIT: Oh, wait. You are using Windows. Sorry, I don't know how to do tha...

Re: Suggestion for a Copernican Revolution for localizations

I don't know about Windows, but on the Mac localization already uses a very similar sort of system. The difficulty and expense involved in localizing an application consists in finding and hiring a skilled translator to do the job.

Compiling to HTML: no </div> at document end

When compiling to HTML using the option "Use centered column to restrict body width", a <div> tag is inserted at the beginning of the body content of the HTML document, but no closing </div> is inserted at the end: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://ww...

Re: BIG Opportunity for Scrivener!

As was mentioned earlier in the thread, you can insert placeholders for images, videos, and audio files into your text, and those files will be inserted when you compile. As for compiling to HTML5, if Scrivener's HTML4 output does not quite meet your needs you could always just download and install ...
