Thanks for the reply, I figured as much, but thought it was worth asking. Something for Scrivener 4 . :wink:

Re: "You should write on paper" advice

So, I sometimes "write" on my iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil in GoodNotes4 - the App converts my writing to text that I can paste into Scrivener. It's a different take ... I sometimes like toiling with the written text, but can't stand the thought of re-typing (or even dictating) as a seco...

Re: Please add a Hotkey to reapply the last used command (MS Word: F4)

I have always wondered if there was a macOS equivalent key anywhere (and F2 toggle edit modes too). I was a long time Windows users that finally saw the light five years ago and switched to the Mac - lever looked back, but have missed those two keys in other Mac apps.

Re: Writing in two columns

Is there a way in Scrivener to write my book text with a side-bar summary column like this example picture from a printed page? I tried a two-column table, but that actual turned out badly.

Stupid Feature Idea - can you add typewriter sounds to the Typewriter feature?

I'm sure there is a small number of typewriter fans that would like to see this (and they probably own the iPad HanxWriter app). Would have to make the typing sound configurable ON/OFF. Normal key stroke sound, backspace sound, carriage return sound, bell at the right margin sound and a graphic just...

Confused about Sort order ...

I dragged a number of entries into a Scrivener 3 Mac Binder from another project's Scrivener 3 Binder and the order they were displayed in was seemingly random in the Outliner view vs the Binder view (see screen clip of Glossary pages A-Z). I ended up using the Outliner column sort to get them to di...

Re: Scrivener + Scapple ... writing and mapping on the same application

I think the best answer is still to use Bookmarks—which does just about everything you could want from this kind of integration, that is feasible ... then you double-click the bookmark instead of single clicking it. :) Easy---and it works just as well for Excel spreadsheets too, or whatever else yo...

I think the best answer is still to use Bookmarks—which does just about everything you could want from this kind of integration, that is feasible.

Re: Creating an Index for a scrivener document

I appreciate the problem isn't easy to solve, but since Scrivener's competitors have already resolved the issue, I'd think it would be high on the To Do list—higher than changing the look of the UI. I really like Scrivener (there, I said it) but I was a bit surprised that it did not do indexing of ...

Re: Creating an Index for a scrivener document

I need to create an index to place at the end of the book. I searched but did not find any information on how to do this? Anyone else figure it out? Thanks in advance I had the same issue and finally settled on this page, see image attachment, for my book index page (since I am only publishing as a...

Re: Short introduction!

Hi all! ... Have tested this software before, like 2 years ago.Today, I finally purchased it for using it full-time for my projects. I have used other softwares, but they haven't as good reviews as Scrivener. Sounds like a great project Cooper! I am fairly new to Scrivener in the past year, but am ...

Re: creating custom shapes

Not that I can tell - you can have images, but those images do not provide a way to put text on top of them. Also, if you like things all nicely aligned, there is no "Align-Top" or "Align-Left" kind of feature. Scapple is designed to be a light-fast-brainstorming tool ... here is...

Re: Scrivener + Scapple ... writing and mapping on the same application

... use a true mind-mapping program. What do you recommend (for the MacOS) - I don't really like MindNode. BTW - For me Scapple is great except the interoperability of the export levels to Scrivener. Personally, I would have made the corkboard in Scrivener do what Scapple does - a natural extension...

Re: Scrivener + Scapple ... writing and mapping on the same application

Well that’s the problem right there: there no hierarchy in Scapple. BINGO! ... isn’t the kind of thing software can easily figure out ... overlap them and straddle notes between them). I'm okay with 80/20 Rule - get the easy level 1,2,3 and any double connected can be dropped. Meanwhile you might h...
