Re: Document Links

You're welcome! I'm glad we seem to be able to communicate. The nice thing about Scrivener is that there's almost always another way to do whatever you're trying to do. :D

Re: Document Links

Ah... I just dragged a document from the binder into another document's Document Bookmarks list in the inspector. No opt, no cmd, just plain drag, The bookmark was created just fine, without changing which document is displayed in the editor. Is this not working for you? Am I misunderstanding your q...

Re: What is colour of iOS inline annotations?

UPDATE: sometimes searching for a particular colour works, and sometimes it doesn't. Success or failure doesn't depend on whether the annotation was made in iOS Scriv or in Mac Scriv, whether the colour was pulled from the same palette or a different palette (with the exact same colour). It's to all...

Re: Can we have "Check spelling as you type" Main Toolbar Action Button, please?

Offering hope from the Dark... er, Mac side here: In Mac Scriv 2, I remember this operating as the Windows users describe, but in Mac Scrivener 3.0.3, this is a menu item--specifically, Edit > Check Spelling and Grammar > Check Spelling While Typing . The Preferences item only controls whether this ...

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

It’s the same deal we got on the Mac side. Yes, I got years of value from my initial $45 USD. NO, I don’t mind paying $25 USD for a major upgrade. L&L have had the same upgrade policy for years, and I’ve always known about it.

No outrage here.

Re: Organizing Information by Date Into a Timeline

... easy way to do it in Scrivener... hmmm... You might want to try adding a date custom metadata field to your project, and fill it in for your research documents. Then you could display your research folder in Outliner mode, and sort on your custom date field. That will display your research docum...

Re: Synchronizing Scrivener 3 with dropbox

On the Mac, you don't "set a sync folder." ⋅ If you haven't already, install the Dropbox app onto your Mac and let it put all the files in your Dropbox into your Dropbox folder on your Mac. ⋅  Quit Scrivener ⋅ MOVE YOUR PROJECT to the folder inside your Mac Dr...

Re: Mac to Windows port possible?

On your Mac (assuming you still have it :( ) you'll need to open each of your projects and File > Export > As Scrivener 2 Project... Then you should be able to open them with Windows Scrivener.

Hope this helps!

Re: Downloading on iOS without being charged a 2nd time

You can only download the latest iOS Scrivener version from the app store and it will work with Mac Scrivener Version 2.8 or more recent.

Hope this helps.

Re: Overwrite text color in main editor (like in composition mode)

The problem with rolling your own colours in an RTF editor is: what do they look like outside of this unnatural (in the sense of it not looking anything like paper, which is all RTF was designed for) background? If one is working purely within a self-contained environment, where all formatting in t...

Re: Overwrite text color in main editor (like in composition mode)

Which is why I roll my own colours. The Solarized palette is versatile, if not the latest thing in UI design. Indeed, I've given up on dark mode in iOS for that reason (I can't see my text/highlight/annotation colours) and I don't use a dark theme in Composition mode, when I use it at all.

I always stay an OS version behind :(

But seriously, have fun coding it! My own hope is that OS-level support will enable colour (as in inline annotations and the like) in dark mode.
