Re: Endnote Library syncing problems

The way the CWYW update is working is by search and match -- it is odd that EN does not see that there is more than one match thiugh, as it would in the normal course of doing this kind of procedure put up a choose dialog. -- If Dropbox does right by Scrivener packages, I bet it does a good job with...

Re: [FEATURE REQUEST] Clocking Hours Within Scrivener

Oh really! Well that is fantastic news. So in the current version for windows right now, there is a feature like this? Not what I said. Such a feature exists in Scriv 3.0 on the Mac -- I do not know if this functionality has made it to the Win side yet -- but it will. How do I use it? To learn abou...

Re: [FEATURE REQUEST] Clocking Hours Within Scrivener

This functionality already exists ("Project Targets", "Project Sessions") and has been made even more sophisticated in Scrivener 3. So, it is in the Mac version and hence will be coming to winScriv when feature parity arrives (I think sights are still set on "by end of year&...

Re: Mac crashed: where to retrieve Scrivener data?

The drop box folder you set up on your macbook is just a folder on your mac and so the files you put there would be backed up along with everything else on your mac. You would probably do better to restore your project from your most recent backup of your MacBook.* gr * If you don't have an external...

Re: Global style (for every project) + "no style" defaults

It is also the case that one's compile format can be used to change how each style presents. That means that, in principle, one could on a style-by-style basis craft a wholly different look for styles in the editor from their look in compiled output. I can't imagine doing this but for a dedicated pu...

Re: Global style (for every project) + "no style" defaults

Here's what I figure: any way to style the "no style" text, so I can make a default that works for old documents too? 1) If what you are wanting to effect is the appearance of no-style paragraphs in the Editor pane(s), then you do this by setting the paragraph/character format preferences ...

Re: uh-oh...page break before--where did that go?

Scrivener 3 has opted for a more systemic way of handling page breaks. The old way, while easy to understand and okay for simple tasks, was, I guess, a bit ad hoc and unwieldy with larger, more complicated projects. What you were doing had an admittedly simple and happy solution: Page View simply em...

Re: Airdrop

On the encryption with Dropbox question: I think the answer is yes, but not for free. You would need to get a $ Dropbox account for that. --gr P.S. For the record, I have been using Scriv with Dropbox since Scriv for iOS came out with no problems. Even if you had some Dropbox incident in the past, i...

Re: Project doesn't open, Scrivener hangs, Text file not found in package: please help

Do you keep your project file stored where in a place that syncs it with a server, like icloud or google drive or dropbox by any chance?

Re: What prevents Split Document from working?

I guess another condition under which both menu items would be grey is when neither of the editor panes is the active pane (has focus).

Re: Importing monstrous Word 2016 document

Hey, Olddog, Fellow Scriv user here. Sounds like you are off to a good start! (And, yes, it was rather crazy to put the text of your entire book into a single Word doc!) If your endnotes are footnotes/endnotes in Word, then they are footnotes/endnotes in Scrivener -- each note lives in association w...
