Re: Is Scrivener iOS still supported?

if you're writing screenplays you may want to try something else. I agree that Scrivener's script-typing features are sub-standard, but there's much more to Scrivener for screenwriters. The organizational tools are really powerful. If you want to break story or brainstorm on iOS, Scrivener is aweso...

Re: Dropbox introduces three-device limit on free accounts

it would be nice if Scrivener for iOS supported more cloud services, (OneDrive) Does Scrivener Mac/iOS sync over webDAV? It should. For much less than a cloud account, you can host a webDAV and have control over your syncing. Also look into Resilio Sync. It's a serverless cloud system that uses pee...

Re: MasterClass: who's tried it?

I heartily recommend the $180 All-Access Pass. The classes are all very interesting and well-produced; some are more superficial than others, but there's always some facinating insight. I've found that since I've been a pro screenwriter for a long while, the writing classes didn't surprise me much. ...

Re: fastest way to add a note

If you have an iOS device: Drafts 4, keeping the ScratchPad in Dropbox, and tweaking the url-scheme in Drafts 4 for sending to Dropbox to send the note to the ScratchPad On OSX, you can do the same with Notational Velocity. The trick is to use a fast-loader like Drafts or NV, and then output to Scr...

So, what are the alternatives to Twitter and Facebook?


Try Reddit. They have many active subreddits for many kinds of writing.

Re: When "cork" isn't cork

The Outline view is a view of the content as an outline. The Corkboard is a view of the content as Index Cards.

If L&L don't like the design aesthetic of cork, perhaps the function should be renamed to Index Cards.

Re: In screenwriting how do I add a paragraph to dialogue?

In screenwriting, it's customary to break up a monologue with either parentheticals or with Scene Description (Action). Most writers create paragraphs in a monologue by adding parentheticals for pauses (beat) or containing direction (thinks for a moment). If you use Action elements instead, you use ...

Re: Can we work in Manuscript / Paperback "mode" ?

Have you tried Page View? (Section 16 in the manual.) It's not a perfect answer, but it might make your writing experience more comfortable. From the manual: page view is for simulating the look and feel of writing on real pages, and is thus an aesthetic preference, not a print preview tool. In some...

Re: Screenplay Format - Best Choice - Separate Document for each scene or not

An inobvious but useful technique is to brainstorm the scene in separate beats, each in its own document, then merge them all into a single document when the scene is finished. This allows you to get a clear idea of the structure of the scene, and to focus on each beat individually. Scrivener is the...

Re: Changing scratch pad font

For the benefit of anyone else who wishes you could drop a text file into the Scratchpad and have it converted to a properly formatted RTF file, I've found a solution.
