Re: Multi-user cross platform use by collaborators

As many people on here know, I’ve been using Scrivener collaborating with a friend in China for a number of years. Rather than type out thoughts once again, can I point you to this post: http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=28339 That was written when the Windows version o...

Re: An online save folder (eg: Drive/Dropbox)

Do NOT use Google Drive to as the Sync-service for your live projects though. Drive is known to corrupt Scrivener projects.

Re: Beta 11 on linux under wine?

For testing purposes, I have installed both all betas up to and including beta 11 using Crossover—a UI development of WINE—on my Mac without any problem. But you’d do best to have a look in the Linux sub forum in the Beta forum https://www.literatureandlatte.com/web/forum/viewforum.php?f=33 and see ...

Re: Writing History weirdness

Similar? (in 3.1.1 (9852) on Mac) Last night the session word count started going all over the place in the search window and in Session Target. The project target number seems correct in both places, and the session number is correct in Writing History. This started happening sometime after I push...

Re: Beta 11: Missing Linguistic Focus Choice on the Edit > Writing Tools Menu

If I remember rightly, Linguistic Focus is only there on the Mac version as it is provided by MacOS. On Windows it will be "Dialogue Focus".

Read the blog entry introducing it:

For the rest, I can't comment.

Re: Beta 11 - Session target doesn't work

As this refers to the current Beta, it would get a quicker response from the developers if posted in the Beta forum.

Re: "Draft" folder, Writing History and new project templates

The "Draft" folder can be renamed at will, though not deleted, and it serves the same function whatever it is called. It has been renamed in some of the templates, so, for instance, in the Novel templates, I believe it is labelled "Manuscript". I have always started from the &quo...

Re: Compile for Word

Try compiling to RTF and open that in Word, to let Word do the conversion to .doc/.docx. That leaves out the third party conversion engine.

Does that help?

Re: 英国硕士挂科最终拿到diploma怎么办

Just for reference, this post is advice for Chinese students planning to come to the UK to study for a postgraduate degree; it doesn't seem to be advertising any website, nor proposing ways to get round the academic requirements. I thought it worth while to make that clear. On the other hand, I woul...

Re: What is this menu -- and how do I get it to stop popping up?

Glad you've got it sorted. As I said, I'm a Mac user and have never used Script mode, but also I was using my iPad at the time and so couldn't even do a quick check on the Mac version. Anyway, just post any questions you have and I'm sure someone more Windows savvy than me will come in to help. :) M...

Re: What is this menu -- and how do I get it to stop popping up?

You’ve activated "script mode". I’m a Mac user and don’t use script mode, but something tells me the shortcut on Windows might be Ctrl-8.

Re: Scrivener 3 Project

If you mean that on the Mac, what the user sees is a single "package" file, 'project.scriv', that they can open by double-clicking, then I doubt if that will ever come to the Windows version, as package files are specific to MacOS (and iOS). I think Windows users will always see 'project.s...

Re: ebook formatting headaches

Have you tried applying "Preserve Formatting" to your quotes? I’m on a Mac v. 3 and am not sure where you find it in the Windows menus. Otherwise, if you’re not going to need to publish in the immediate future, then version 3 will give you styles, which will make it easier. I realise that ...
