A one-off issue with read-only

I'm on MacOS 10.13.3, and I'm using Scrivener 3.0.1 on my MacBook. The drive is 500G SSD. And, I am a single user; my setup includes DropBox, which was setup precisely as described by L&L and which util today worked flawlessly on both my Mac and on my iPhone. On the iOS side, I am running 11.2.6...

Multiple windows

Yep, you heard it right: multiple windows. As in more than one window on the same document at the same time. I have so much research material in my Scrivener document that split screens, while very useful, aren't enough. But another window open on the second monitor? A dream come true. It's a featur...

Re: OSX System Compatibility with PB G4

As I feared, and thanks.

I should probably have not updated my work into a version of Scrivener that won't run on 10.5; I see there's no 'save as' that saves down to earlier versions of Scrivener.

OSX System Compatibility with PB G4

I'm using Scrivener 2.8 under OS X 10.12.0. I am also using Scrivener for iOS on an iPhone 6 Plus. I use DropBox to 'share' the files between platforms. This works brilliantly. As it happens, I have a PowerBook G4 that I love to use for typing and so would like to put Scrivener on the G4 PowerBook. ...

Re: Scribe?

The crashing issue easily resolved by deleting the app from the phone then syncing and letting iTunes re-install the app; no re-download needed.

(if there is a way to edit posts after submitted I don't see it).

Re: Scribe?

K: Answering your question, I used the 'Copy' function in Dropbox to move the project file into Apps/Scrivener/. I did this because I was not able to locate the file in the Dropbox directory using Scrivener, although the file was indeed in the Dropbox folder. Once I moved it Scrivener iOS found it b...

Scribe?

Everyone, In the course of setting up Dropbox I see that Scrivener on iOS won't recognize scrivx files generated by Scrivener for MacOS and saved to the Dropbox linked folder on the desktop. I'm missing something, but what? (I don't know what I expected but Scrivener on iOS is an elegant work of art...

Re: Outline mode- go deeper than document name?

The idea of making each graf a doc as a workaround for outlining doesn't seem very useful; I played with it but it's far too clunky to be taken seriously. On the other hand if there's a good way in Scrivener to pull pieces from several documents into a single document I've not found it. Example: Lot...

Re: Outline mode- go deeper than document name?

Thanks! Now I'm imagining my Binder to be about 6 miles long!

Guess I will experiment a bit…deadline looming, though.

Outline mode- go deeper than document name?

I've been using Scrivener for many years to write my weekly newspaper column, simply making a new document each week. Might as well used TextEdit, I know, but I wanted to get some experience with Scrivener. I am in no way stressing the program or even dipping my toe into the abilities I know are the...

highlight current line is 'stuck'

Thinking I wanted to be fancy, I clicked the preferences/compose/editing box labeled "Highlight Current Line". I also assigned a custom color, bottom of the same prefs page, "customizable colors". Then I found the color annoying, so I unchecked the box, and changed the color. Nei...

Convert an underlined phrase to a quoted phrase?

Can I automate adding quotation marks around a phrase? I was thinking in the manner that a phrase can be converted from sentence to title case, for example? I have many of these, suitable for citations: Landscape Plants for the Gulf and South Atlantic Coasts (that's supposed to be underline, not sur...

new window?

Is it possible to have two windows open at once? What I mean is this: I use Scrivener to write a weekly column. My Binder contains about 400 columns organized by date. This works well for me except when I want to search for something I might have written, in which case the window becomes unusable fo...

A better way to use Scrivener?

I came to Scrivener through Pages. I tried all of the similar programs out there but selected Scrivener for the wrong reason! As it turns out, it was a fortuitous choice, but I wonder if I am wasting the power of the app? I have severe current projects as examples: pfd.jpg 1. A weekly column for the...
