Re: Lost Folder Contents

Glad it helped! I wouldn't read the manual at this point (it's for dipping into, rather than reading), but if you can spare an hour to skim through the interactive tutorial (on the Help menu), then I think you'll find it really useful. No need to study it in depth how, but even a cursory look throug...

Re: Lost Folder Contents

Trying the obvious first: what happens when you click on the folder and then hit cmd-1 ? Cmd-1 will toggle the editor between 'single document mode'(you only see what it's in the Folder document itself) and 'scrivenings mode' (you see the text from all the subdocuments as well). As most folders don'...

Re: How to change Heading background with new dark mode?

Have a look in Preferences > Appearance > Main Editor > Colours The two settings are in Editor (ie the background to the main text) and Fixed Width Background . To change the colours, just click on the rectangle over the Choose Texture button, and you'll get the standard Apple Colour Swatch control....

Re: Scrivener crashes

If you're on the standard download version, then there is a fix, which is available on the website; https://www.literatureandlatte.com/scrivener/download . Just download and resin tall. If you're using the AppStore version, then the answer is the same! (Apple have a fix in their queue but haven't re...

Re: Scrivener won't open

There is a known issue which has been fixed on the non-App store version, but Apple have not yet authorised the fix for the App Store. However, if you download the version available on this site (not the App Store) temporarily, it will recognise that you're authorised and allow you to use it tempora...

Re: Indents and zooming in Scrivener vs. Ulysseus

Ah, but I always use the external folder option, :oops: which eliminates Markdown XL. So a single return for me translates to a line break, not a paragraph break. As others have posted elsewhere, my fear and loathing of the unified iCloud library is vast. If I'm going to use a plain text format, I ...

Re: Seeking Advice - Apple or Windows PC

I’ve found the opposite: performance increases slightly with each version of MacOS., or at worst remains the same. I always reinstall from scratch though.

Re: Indents and zooming in Scrivener vs. Ulysseus

If you’re using the default Markdown XL, you don't need to leave a blank line betweeen paragraphs in Ulysses - it will export fine without them. It's only if you’re using the Markdown format that you need that. The output is entirely dependent on the export format you choose, of course, but a paragr...

Re: iOS Scrivener - additional keyboard shortcuts

Can I add a request for a shortcut for FORWARD DELETE, please? The lack of an Fn key on the Apple Smart Keyboard means there's no comfortable method of delete forward except right-arrow-backspace. There's an icon for it already, so hopefully it won't involve much additional work. The obvious shortcu...

Re: How to Compile in v.3

You need to read the Tutorial :)

Seriously, an hour skim reading that and paying attention to the ‘What’s new section’ and it will become very clear why things are set out the way they are, and why they’re called what they are. It will save you a lot of time.

Re: Option to show synopsis with titles in scrivenings?

The first point is not to worry that no-one seemed to respond to your first post! That's quite usual in the Wish List forum, and it doesn't mean that the developers are ignoring your request: it will have been noted — doesn't mean it will be implemented, of course, but they are all noted, as far as ...

Re: Seeking Advice - Apple or Windows PC

Keyboards are a personal thing, of course, but I’ve had the MacBook 12” since 2015 (so it’s the original version of the new style keyboard, which has been improved since), and I can honestly say that it’s been great to type on — I much prefer it to Apple’s standard desktop and magic keyboards, which...

Re: Lost my disk during work

The files in Backups are just zipped projects. They are meant to be unzipped and the project opened in the normal way, so you shouldn't need to (you're advised NOT to) got delving into the project page itself. If I were you, I'd unzip one of them in the Backups folder, then rename it immediately for...

Re: Adding scenes and chapters retrospectively

You can divide your manuscript up any way you like at any time. Assuming what you have at the moment is one long document in the binder. Go through it and whenever you want to create the new scene, then put your cursor at the first word on the new scene and use ‘Split Document’ (cmd-k). If you want,...
