Re: How do I revert to pre-v3 Scrivener?

To supplement what JimRac has said—you can read about exporting as a Scriv2 project in the Manual at section 3.4.4. [There’s no reason to walk away. You can work back and forth between the versions, or you can use Scriv2 for the collaboration. Your version 3 license entitles you to also run version ...

Re: Why I don't trust Dropbox and what the Scrivener developer can do about it.

Since Sync was brought up––as Tacitus said, Sync doesn’t recommend its service for live projects. I’ve asked Sync specifically about Scrivener and included Keith’s explanation from here: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=244405#p244405 On the other hand, xiamenese, a long-time...

Re: Why I don't trust Dropbox and what the Scrivener developer can do about it.

iCloud Drive has worked well with Scrivener for me (Mac to Mac). It's been several months now with zero problems. I don't use ' Optimize Mac Storage ' or ' Desktop & Documents Folders '. In addition to what's been posted, you can also monitor iCloud Drive's activity at Finder's Status Bar and in...

Re: Hide Previews of Content

Another tool you can use—add an Inline Annotation* to the document opening line. It can be as short as a single character in length. *Side note—because of iDevice limitations, iOS Scrivener itself is necessarily limited as compared to desktop versions. IA's versatility is especially appreciated ther...

Re: Hide Previews of Content

In either macOS or iOS, enter a carriage return in the opening synopsis field. Better?

Oh, this is great! Makes perfect sense and would totally be no problem. I'll definetely use this method in the future, thanks! You're welcome. But to clarify a bit since I said to read one section––you should read the rest as well for further advice/warnings. The "Alternate Method" sectio...

Re: Sorting Bookmarks in the Inspector

You can sort them manually by click, drag and drop. I don't think there's another way.

Re: Save Malfunction - Missing Text Files

SNIP Or is there a safer way to sync the project between two different windows systems? At the moment, I'm only working on it on my PC, so I'll keep it set up as I have now (live project - local; backups - dropbox), but for the future, what is the safest way? SNIP Just a comment on what's the safes...

Re: Macbook recommendations for Scrivener 3

If you intend to just order it online, before you do, head into an Apple store and try out the keyboards. They're significantly different. You can always use an external one if that's your use-case, but if you're planning on mostly using the machine's, you really should check first.

Re: How to Select folder plus contents during compile.

I know it’s not the shortcut you’re looking for but another way—start Compile, then select/deselect (check marks) the items you want to compile/omit. See section 23 of the manual:
