Re: Syncing Scrivener on iOS takes a long time

That they improved anything at all is speculation, based on the anecdotes above. The last we heard from them was that they were passing the feedback along, that their recursive folder sweep method was too slow.

Re: Include Status and or Label in compile, to markdown

Yes, that is something you can easily do. If you check out the List of All Placeholders cheatsheet in the Help menu, you’ll find that every kind of metadata Scrivener supports has an associated text-based placeholder tag that can be inserted into just about any Compile field available (and indeed in...

Re: compliling a numeric-alpha outline....

Oh okay! With MultiMarkdown you can add a metadata key to the Metadata tab in compile overview called, “Base Header Level”. Use that to set what a single “#” heading should mean—so if with your post you want the top level to be “h3”, then you would type the number “3” into the field below the metada...

Re: Section layout works on all documents except one?

There are two things I would check for: ⋅  In the compile overview screen, double-check that when you click on the Section Layout preview tile, the item in question is highlighted in yellow in the Contents list on the right. ⋅  If it is definitey set up right, then check the text...

Re: Formatting problem with indents during compile

One approach would be to use a style for these entries, perhaps called “Bibliography Entry”, so that they can be identified as such, and have their unique formatting preserved if the compiler tries to reformat them. Note when you create a style you can set it up to continue using that same style whe...

Re: compliling a numeric-alpha outline....

Thanks, I got the message and the attachment. I don't quite understand how it is meant to be used though. You said this was going to be used with WordPress, but the project is set up to compile to "Print".

Re: Context menu additions to Corkboard

I haven’t checked in the current stable version, but in the v3 beta these things are already present. Perhaps make sure you are not right-clicking into text, as opposed to the card itself when editing is toggled off.

Would ImageMagick work for what you want to do? Should be able to install that with Homebrew.

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

The example I provided above is probably the lowest impact one you could use: an inline annotation—it’s in the insert button on iOS; insert menu on Mac. The feature is designed for comments and notes-to-self in your text; they won’t compile by default. Others would include comments/footnotes (of bot...

Re: Notes in iOS Scrivener?

Yeah, part of the awkwardness of Project Notes being in their own self-contained bubble, rather than being a full part of the project that you could export, edit in the main viewers, sync with iOS, etc., is what instigated looking into a change for how they worked. If you want to read more about the...

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

It was indeed iOS 12 instigated, but that was only part of the problem. The other part is if the file in question has no other “special” elements within it then iOS will drop to the more efficient native RTF file saver that the device itself provides, rather than Scrivener’s custom saving routine. T...

Re: Name of next section being appended to footnote in Kindle format

I have a couple of questions: ⋅  You mention this happens when viewed on a Kindle device, is that a statement declaring that this is what you’ve tested, or that you’ve tested five or six different viewers and only on a physical Kindle device (or simulator) does the problem appear? ⋅&n...

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

Second update: and it’s been found! This will be fixed in the next iOS update (no ETA yet, Mojave Dark Mode project is a chaotic element).

Thanks to everyone that helped contribute data.

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

To update: we’ve been doing further in-house testing and the results are still inconclusive. Some of us see the problem repeatedly, others never do. iOS version doesn’t seem to be the main driver, which is what I was kind of hoping for—that would have made things perhaps easier to narrow down. At an...

Re: Session Target never resetting

I am setting the session reset so that it happens ten minutes from right now . And then I will continue to write in that project, and in ten minutes it will reset. Then I set it again another ten minutes ahead. It isn’t “every day”, it is whenever the time you set passes, so if the time is set to ha...
