Re: Folders in collections

Auxbuss, just so I am clear: what you were dreaming of was some folder management for collections -- is that right? I ask because the term "collections of collections" suggests somewhat more than that, since 'collections' in Scriv is not just another name for folder, but a term for a kind ...

Re: NiaD 7: Lessons Learned

How about: A group of writers, most of whom have never met, decide to write a novel in 24 hours without knowing the plot or what each other is writing. Everything they write comes true... How about: Criminal mastermind uses a stable of unsuspecting writers to execute the perfect crime. Set to work ...

Re: When I use iOS my images revert to full size

I tried to resize my images to the size I want them in the document, but they are barely recognizable even when they are at the same resolution. When I move the full size file into the document and resize it to say... 115x75 it looks ok, but when i resize that same image first to 115x75 at 72dpi an...

Re: Scrivener 3 app hangs/stops responding during compiling

Do you mean 85,000 words in your project draft or do you really mean you have 85,000 words in a single doc in Scrivener?

Re: EndNote and Scrivener: How to "author (year)" instead of "(author, year)"?

The trick is just to remove the author name from the temporary citation. As shown in {Smith, 1945 #3557} , coffee has many health benefits. As Smith and Jones {, 1945 #3557} have shown, coffee has many evident health benefits. You should read up on "temporary citations" in the Endnote docu...

Re: How would you write a good amnesia opening?

Decadey, I would think about other techniques at your disposal for representing the character's lapses. Having the character ask (and have answered) questions is only one way. For example, in reality, when people are disoriented or lose track of what is going on, they often precisely DON'T ask quest...

Re: NiaD 7: Lessons Learned

But that would be both mean and against the rules. If I don’t insist on a new genre each time, I can’t call it quits when we’ve done them all. So sorry. I already have in the wings an extended theory of genre -- your own theory of genre but on steroids.* Code name: "genreRog+" or just 'gR...

Re: NiaD 7: Lessons Learned

Changing the subject slightly... How do people feel about having expositional elements in their chapter briefs? I’ve tended to write off story ideas that have required any material level of exposition, but maybe I’m too sensitive? I am not entirely clear on what you are considering here. How is wha...
