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. OSX has a built-in shell script command called textutil that can convert one text file or a whole folder of them to RTF with a singl...

Re: Changing scratch pad font

Thank you.

I couldn't get this to work. With the Scratchpad active, and even with text highlighted, invoking the Zoom commands or Cmd-> results in Scrivener zooming one of the editors. Even if another app is frontmost and active.

What am I doing wrong?

Re: Changing scratch pad font

Is there a way to make it any larger? (Maybe changing a defaults file in the Terminal?) On a high-res screen, it's effectively illegible. I tried changing the Scratchpad setup to RTF, but when TXT files are dropped in its folder, they still come up in the tiny font. I wish it worked the way it says ...

Re: Changing scratch pad font

I'm having trouble with this. My Scratchpad is set to TXT so I can import from an iOS notepad. When I change the font in Preferences>Editing>Notes, the changes take in the Notes panel, but not in the Scratchpad. I've quit and relaunched, and deleted all Scratchpad items. The Scratchpad still shows t...

Yes! That was the bit I wasn't getting.

Thanks very much.

Re: Keyboard only Corkboard workflow?

I'm not quite sure what you want to do here. I'd like to select an index card in the Corkboard, use a keyboard shortcut to create a child card, and open the stack containing the child. I can do this with the mouse and keyboard. Can it be done with the keyboard alone? (This can be done easily in the...

Re: Keyboard only Corkboard workflow?

Thanks for the help.

How do you use Cmd-N to create a child card in the corkboard?
When I invoke Cmd-N, it creates a new sibling card, not a child card/card stack.

I know I can make a child document in the Binder, but I'm looking for a Corkboard solution using the keyboard.

Keyboard only Corkboard workflow?

I've searched Manual and Forums and haven't found an answer. Is there a way I can do these Corkboard functions using keyboard shortcuts? • Create a Child Document/index card • Drill down into a stack of cards (I know there's a keyboard shortcut for viewing enclosing) • Opening card in other editor T...

Re: help for tracking and compiling theme in chronological journal

almost all of the text I want to enter is handwritten in individual journals, notebooks, or stapled sheets of looseleaf that are currently scattered in a number of boxes, bags, and other assorted containers. Other text is found in emails and what was salvaged from a failed journaling application ex...

Re: help for tracking and compiling theme in chronological journal

I want to be able to track a couple of themes or topics while I enter notes from several years of travel and personal journals in a Scrivener project. The project with be organized chronologically, but I'll be entering information in whatever order I find the notes and journals. I'd like to be able...

Re: Heirarchical Index Card View in Binder

That's sort of what I'm talking about, but, what I'd want is this displayed in the binder , so I could edit the documents in question in the editor while selecting them in the binder and creating Scrivenings. I know this is not exactly what you want, but if you click in the toolbar on this icon htt...

Use whatever method you prefer to deselect the comment and try again. Thanks, this worked. I deselected the comment by clicking outside the comment in the Comment Pane.

Re: Help to put in a "bookmark"??

I use inspector comments for this. A simple, dated "start here" works. Set up a Scrivening in the editor that contains the document in question. Put your insertion point anywhere inside the editor. Now show the comments pane in the inspector. Click on the "start here" comment in...
