Re: Novel Format Word Count

It is good to check your Compile settings as well, particularly on the right side where the contents list is shown. There are some compile settings that can produce unexpected results—for example if you use the dropdown at the top of the list and set it to “Current Selection”, and then in the Statis...

Re: Sync to folder just ,messed up my project.

Okay, the additional ingredient of Dropbox in the other thread might be misleading in the sense that this kind of problem between two projects can be produced using any means to transfer the files from one computer to another. In the case of Dropbox it is using the Internet and a bunch of automatic ...

Re: A pencil tool for Scapple 2.0 please!!!!

Well that escalated quickly. From a somewhat simple request for a scribble tool, to porting the software to a completely different operating system on a fundamentally different kind of hardware and adding support for stylus input (naturally). The gravity of what one requests is sometimes not obvious...

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

Although it is relatively simple to manage one’s projects using file management (whether in iTunes or with a third-party tool), I don’t think that this will have much of an impact on the problem that is being described here. The problem is that the iOS file writer that saves the edited document to t...

Re: Export, but no Table of Contents?

You’re welcome!

Now if I could only figure out how to stop the first three words of each section from being in all caps, I’d be 100% happy.


That’ll be in the “New Pages” tab, for the Section Layout that prints scene text (probably “Section Text”): Number of opening words to make uppercase.

Re: Scrivener compiles an older version of the story = the oldest snapshot

And to clarify my earlier point: what I was referring to would not have anything to do with how you save the entire project (or which one you are loading, etc.). Try this experiment (on a copy of the interactive tutorial from the help menu, so as to not risk messing anything important up): ⋅&nb...

Re: Trouble with section with indents

Okay, I think I understand better now—the interview needs to be contained within the confines of scenes (isn’t another kind of scene), and so should allow scenes to follow their normal rules for separation without interfering with them. Hmm, that could be a little trickier, at least if you do use Se...

Re: Import files + associated metadata?

As files on the disk, no it will not attempt to discover metadata stored in different file formats and turn that into Scrivener metadata. If this is what you mean, I would recommend importing in topical batches, so that you can more easily bulk apply appropriate metadata in Scrivener. But if you’re ...

Re: Feature request - resampling images

There isn’t a way of editing graphics inside of Scapple, or to open images from within the board and edit them using a graphics editing tool. Your best approach will probably be to use the File ▸ Export ▸ Images... menu command, where you can then bulk resize them down to something more compressed a...

Re: Scrivener compiles an older version of the story = the oldest snapshot

It’s not possible to have the compiler use snapshots for what it exports, so my guess would be that there is something different going on—perhaps you migrated to a new folder at some point for working on the revision, and left the first revision in the actual Draft (with a capital ‘D’) folder, which...

Re: Trouble with section with indents

I’m not sure what you have tried just yet, but the way I would approach something like this is to have a separate Section Type for these transcribed interviews, and then build a new Layout for them that doesn’t follow the same rules a layout would do for scenes. ⋅  An overall indent can be...

Re: Mac Preferences keyboard shortcuts vs Scrivener keyboard shortcuts

I blame Christopher Robin for a great many things! To answer in order: to be ornery and confuse both computers and humans alike, from a fancy of the imagination, and yes, that is how the vowels read to them, but all run together like a single extended triphthong. And lastly, mainly family, but now t...

Re: Export, but no Table of Contents?

If you go into the Table of Contents compile option pane on the right-hand side of the compile overview screen, you’ll find a checkbox to disable the readable ToC: Generate HTML table of contents . This will not make the book entirely impossible to navigate around within however. Those readers that ...

Re: Sync to folder just ,messed up my project.

This sounds a lot like this case . Are you trying to use this feature to sync two different projects together? If so the internal numbering will nearly always be different and so you end up with the wrong content being jammed into binder items. It probably would be best to step back to your last bac...

Re: Text Align Shortcut Does Not Work

Are you perhaps running into a scenario demonstrated in the following illustration, where the width of the note is sized to perfectly fit the text content, and thus all alignment options appear ineffectual? http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum_images/18267525-scap-alignment_in_narrow_notes.png
