Re: Split Windows

I realise that Scrivener is culturally a tool for writing fiction; but the User Manual is about 900 pages of non-fiction; with No Index as far as I could see. Makes reference when needed a bit awkward; or am I as usual missing something obvious. The Contents list at the beginning of the Manual is p...

Re: Which new iPad Pro?

Well, in the end I bought the 12.9. Of course, although I tried a 10.5 in an Apple Store, I had no long-term experience of the smaller model. But even so, I'm really glad I went for the 12.9. I've teamed it with a Brydge keyboard, and the typing experience is pleasant. I write on it with an Apple Pe...

Re: How do I fix this?

All I'm doing is interpreting for you the message you've received above. As far as I can remember - I don't have Scrivener available to me on the machine on which I'm writing this - anything other than text, and images embedded in text and also, possibly, PDF's embedded in text, should not be stored...

Re: How do I fix this?

Here's a suggestion: why don't you put (empty) folders at your dividing-line "breakpoints" that are entitled, say, "XXXXXXXXX"? Hopefully such a title will be visible enough for your purposes. (The problem you're encountering is that the Draft folder is, as the message implies, o...

Re: words per manuscript page

rdale, when I say "buyers", I'm referring to the individuals who commission me to write their life stories. That's my gig. They're buying my services to write their autobiography for them. They tend to understand page volume more easily than word-count. Word-count means nothing to them as...

Re: File>Recent Projects

As far as I know, this sometimes happens on a system upgrade, possibly on point-upgrades in between the major ones. It's happened to me, first on a system upgrade a few years back (Yosemite? Mavericks? I don't remember), and not just for Scrivener. Now I always reset the system preference after a ma...

Re: registration details

Hi, I just had the same problem. Carefully copy and pasted registration name and number, scrolling through to check no spaces were introduced. Cannot register and risk losing my work as this is the last trial session. Just to say - it's very unlikely indeed that you'll lose your work. In days gone ...

Re: Adding TinderBox for Keeping Track of Things? Not really! Something else?

Incidentally, one or two people in this and other forums seem to have the idea that Tinderbox can be a document-manager and store, like DevonThink, Eaglefiler or Keep it. It really isn't (in my opinion, although I concede that like many such applications it can be used for a purpose for which it has...

Re: Adding TinderBox for Keeping Track of Things? Not really! Something else?

Keep It?

(Keep It, or its predecessors, have frequently been considered as lighter-weight alternatives to DevonThink and Eaglefiler.)
