Re: When "cork" isn't cork

Perhaps you’re being a bit tongue in cheek at this point. :) Are you, a writer, saying words do not have enough power to create meaning and a sense of purpose without a corresponding photorealistic visual aid? What are you proposing it be called? We can’t use pins, boards or cards in our reference....

Re: When "cork" isn't cork

The basic sentiment from the developers seems to be that we’re moving away from the skeuomorphic - no need for real-world textures like wood or cork. OK, well fine... THEN DON”T CALL IT A CORKBOARD! Call it something else. But if you do continue to call it a corkboard, then put the freakin’ cork te...

Shortly after I bought my first Mac I remember standing in line to get my Leopard upgrade. Got a free t-shirt, too! Lol

Re: Have the Scrivener "Interface Controls" changed?

It's not really possible for people to guess what those 'certain keystrokes' you used to use are though. If you tell us which functions / features you want to use and we'll tell you what the keystrokes are. Regards. I use the default command keys. The ones that came with S2, I didn't change them, b...

Re: When "cork" isn't cork

So I just got the iOS version, and the fact that I’m resurrecting an old thread tells you that I, too, was looking for that old cork texture background. I read this thread, and it’s obvious that 1.5 years later this decision seems rather final. But I have a question... The basic sentiment from the d...

Forum software on iOS

Not sure where to post this - the forum software has issues in Chrome on iOS. Image attachments don’t work at all - can’t drag and drop, and the ‘add files’ button under Attachments is inop. Works fine in Safari.

Re: Colours in Binder

You can set the label colors on iOS. The default colors are *very* pastel!

A big jumbly mess - aka consolidation hell

So in preparation for today's writer's workshop (and a pending iOS app purchase) I am trying to find/consolidate all of my existing Scrivener projects. Holy crap... So first I have to find them and re-organize them. But I have also discovered some folders with only a binder.scrivproject file, no .sc...

Eleven Years!

So I recently ended up with an iPad. It isn't something I planned, but it was part of a live music setup. And then I have this writer's conference I am going to (starting this evening) so I started looking at iOS apps for note-taking, etc. I ended up narrowing things down to Ulysses and Scrivener. I...

Re: Convert .scrivproj to .scrivx ?

These are older projects, from back in the 1.x days. As you may recall, back then the thought of a Windows version was laughable, so the project format took full advantage of various Mac proprietary formats, such as RTFD and its method of storing data, like the names of items and how they are organ...

Convert .scrivproj to .scrivx ?

My first Scrivener license was on a Mac in 2010. I'm now on Windows. I managed to open most of my old projects, but several have only .scrivproj files, not .scriv or .scrivx - what's the easiest way to convert or import these projects into my new Windows version?
