Hello! Nice to be back, and to see that you're both still posting here! When I hopped back on, I noticed that I've been a member here since 2007! Nine years of your shenanigans. Looking forward to more!

Quitter + Scrivener

Having returned to Scrivener, at long last, after a couple of years using Ulysses, I encountered only one small hiccup: the Don't Open A Project on Two Machines issue. Given that I work on two computers, one at home and one in my office, and given that I sometimes walk away from one or the other mac...

OmniPresence For Synching Scrivener?

I was setting up OmniPresence from The Omni Group — it's their proprietary cloud syncing method for their apps — when I noticed two sentences in their documentation: We designed OmniPresence to sync any document type that supports OS X Versions... and 1. OmniPresence is designed to sync all kinds of...

Re: This poor lost soul needs Scrivener

I think there's a lot of good advice above re: how to learn Scrivener, but I don't think it's solving the problem here. ...we have recently been discussing how we can make Scrivener more accessible to new users. ...it is also about working out how to pitch our help materials. One problem we have cur...

Re: This poor lost soul needs Scrivener

A Quick Start Guide! Surely a good idea. We have one of those: chapter 6 in the user manual. It’s just a general introduction to corkboards, outlines and the editor, through a series of step-by-step examples. I think a Quick Start Guide should be Binder and Editor only. You can write in chunks, thi...

Re: Scrivener Lite; i.e. Textwrangler:BBEdit

There's this Steve Martin routine where he tells us, "You can be a millionaire... and never pay taxes." The next thing he says is, "First, get a million, dollars. Then..." It's become shorthand in my family for any suggestion where the hardest part is simply assumed. So, yeah, fi...

Re: Scrivener Lite; i.e. Textwrangler:BBEdit

Scrivener's generous trial period alone — especially with the "only count the days you use it" policy — obviates the need for a free Scrivener Lite. However, I do think there is an opportunity for another desktop Scrivener product. I wonder if there's room for a (sorry for the name) Scrive...

Re: Code name start with a Capital ?

Yes, absolutely capitalize. It's a proper noun, and not capitalizing — especially if the code name is a common word — could be confusing: It seemed that every place Bob had been over the last three days — the pub, the brothel; really, just those two places, as Bob's marriage of late had been, well, ...

Re: The Blog?

To be clear, the complaint about Scrivener's support forum is, "They didn't critique my novel in a timely fashion"? SC P.S. Not having a go at the old crew in any way, and not suggesting that the OC makes exclusivity claims. Despite my frequent and lengthy absences from this forum, I consi...

Re: Typewriter Scroll Line setting not working

If you are in page view (and therefore can't use typewriter mode), you can still have that look. Preferences > Editor > Wrap To Editor Mode and tick the "use fixed width" box. Then make the width of your editor such that it looks like Page View mode. (You can change the color of the backgr...
