Re: Transforming text case in compile question

It would probably be easier to do any or all of the following than to try to transform the text to upper case: Increase the font size, change the color, add brackets around the text, add emoji or other special characters in front of or around the text, underline, change the font to something that lo...

Re: Version 3 for Mac: Can I display metadata values in the main editor or the composition window?

No. The substitution of those values happens at the time that you compile. You'll have to keep the inspector open to the custom metadata pane, or you'll need to split your editor and load the outline view with your custom metadata field added as a column. Note that to see your document's metadata, y...

Re: To Buy or Not To Buy Scrivener 3

The trial is fully functional, so I advise you test it out for 30 days of use*. You'll need to install the Dropbox software on your Mac to get access to the projects you're syncing with your iDevices. If I do buy Scrivener 3 and I start syncing between laptop, phone and IPAD, does anyone know if I w...

Re: Scrivener creating a .zip file everytime I quit the program

Perfect, I created an own folder for the backups which solved the issue! Thanks! To the new version - that's unfortunate that one has to pay to upgrade. I haven't seen that for any other program. I think you should only have to pay once for a program and get any updates for free. For "point re...

Re: Scrivener creating a .zip file everytime I quit the program

If your computer can run version 3 (Requires macOS 10.12 +), then you can upgrade for 50% off: https://store3.esellerate.net/store/checkout/CustomLayout.aspx?s=STR4913460776&pc=&page=enteremail.htm Be warned; the compile function has changed radically. It's much more flexible compared to how...

Re: [NB] Need update for Windows Beta 8 before Sept.30th please

I can't speak for the developers, but my guess is that the only reason we even had a "beta" (which I recall was considered more of an "Alpha" release) last December is because the Mac version 3 was ready, and Keith (the Mac developer and creator of Scrivener) wasn't about to dela...

Re: [NB] Need update for Windows Beta 8 before Sept.30th please

Given the very slow progress of this beta, it is very clear that, on the Windows side at least, it is just a hobbyist development project. That's patently untrue. Take it from someone who's been on these forums since before there was a Windows version. You're not looking at a corporation with hundr...

Re: How to share content between projects?

Thanks for replying. Are you saying that it is a good idea to have all the books in the same project? There are no hard-and-fast rules. I guess it comes down to how much revision history of your story bible do you need to keep up with? There are also risks if you're prone to using global search and...

Re: Scrivener suddenly has lost its registration

I have a similar issue - I'v got 2.8.1.2, running on 10.7.5 (thouhj I hopr to update). I bought a standard license - does this only cover version 3? If you bought it recently, then you should update to version 2.9, which I believe is only different in that it accepts the license codes they're selli...

Re: How to share content between projects?

You can't view the contents of one project from within another project window. You might be able to generate links that will open the other project and then display a particular document (not sure if that's a version 1 feature or not), but I doubt that's what you're after. A solution that people who...

Making <$hn> title prefix part of the title in LaTeX output

I'm using hierarchical numbering for all of my sections (title prefix = "<$hn> "), which works out for each document title in the main body of the document. But when I include the document title in the header, like this: \fancyhead[LE,LO]{\large <$title>} The number is omitted. How can I m...

Re: After syncing on dropbox, it *always* scrambles the order of folders and chapters - please Help :D

Your project should live in your Dropbox folder, not elsewhere. By moving it there on one computer, and archiving all other copies that are outside the Dropbox folder on all of your computers, you will get what you need without further intervention. Here's how they outline setting it up for the firs...

Re: Putting LaTeX header into binder

So I’m not sure how to approach that one The more I ponder this, the less I think a change to the manual is appropriate.

Are you sure you're looking at the binder, and not a collection (such as the one created when file changes are synced from iOS to desktop Scrivener)?

Re: Putting LaTeX header into binder

Sorry, Ioa. I should probably pause to read that chapter/section more carefully, as the interaction between Scrivener and Latex isn't quite as intuitive as the standard methods for writing in Scrivener. It would save me some confusion and frustration, even though it always feels like I'm sacrificing...
