Re: ScrivNote for iPhone - feedback requested!

Just got an iPhone (love it) and wished right off for a Scrivener-capture app. At bare minimum, the hipster PDA, with a simple list of card titles. The iPhone SDK offers a list interface with drag/drop built in, so it should be straightforward. Horizontal mode is also a good idea. It would be even b...

Isn't this story a quote from the script from the 2007 movie Pathfinder, written by Laeta Kalogridis, based on the 1987 screenplay by Nils Gaup?

Paste from Final Draft with Formatting?

I appreciate your efforts to make screenwriting in Scrivener easier. Would you please consider supporting pasting with format from Final Draft? Scrivener supports copy/paste with formatting within its own screenplay pages. However, when I copy from Final Draft and paste into a Scrivener screenplay p...

Screenplay Autofill request 2008

Would you consider improving Scrivener's Autofill feature so it works exactly like Final Draft? I know -- Scrivener is not a dedicated screenplay program. So we have to use Final Draft (or something like it) in addition to Scrivener. Which makes it pretty important to us that typing a scene in Scriv...

Re: Screenwriter Desire

Now how close - and how desirable for screenwriters, are these functions?) IMHO, the most desirable functions for professional screenwriting that Scrivener lacks are (in order of importance): (1) Page break indicator with page length control. It's vital to know the length of your scenes and sequenc...

Re: Binder sync on Cmd-[

FWIW, I created a QuicKey macro that adds a "Reveal In Binder" keystroke whenever I use CMD-[ or CMD-] for Back or Forward. Works great -- syncs the Binder as I navigate.

Re: line numbering please!

Actually, after reading this post, I have looked into this... It would be quite nice to have line numbering for poets, I guess. ...if I did look at this, should the line numbers count every line (even blank lines) or only lines with actual text on them? If you work that out, would it be possible to...

Re: Default Font weirdness

Thanks for the response. Courier Final Draft is active, installed and working.

I used Edit Scrivenings and Convert Formatting to set them back to Courier Final Draft. If it happens again, I'll try to provide more clues. Hopefully, it was a one-time mistake on my part.

Re: Default Font weirdness

Yesterday, I had dozens of documents displayed in Courier Final Draft.

Today, they are all in Times. All of them. Even the ones in the Trash.

Is there a pilot error that could easily cause this?

Is there an easy way to revert it?

Thanks.

Default Font weirdness

Scriv 1.11 on Tiger. I have default font set for Courier Final Draft(Surprising, no?) in notes, Screenplay, index cards. Worked on it yesterday, everything was fine. Today, I open the file and all my documents are displayed in Times. I go to Prefs, and my default fonts are still set correctly. I res...

Re: Binder sync on Cmd-[

The FAQ doesn't really answer the core design issue. When you use Document>Split, the editor shows the new split document, and the binder syncs to it. Based on that behavior, when you back out to the previous document using CMD-[, the binder should sync to the previous document. Note that I'm not ar...

Binder sync on Cmd-[

Is this the way it's supposed to work? If I click a document A in the binder, then split the document using selection for title, Scrivener creates the new document (B), sets its title and highlights it in the binder. If I press CMD-[ to back out to the original document, it shows the document, but t...

Re: Note trick

I wish that Scivener would append a link to the bottom of the note, pointing to the document the note references. That way, whenever you open the note, you can see what document it refers to. It would also speed up note-taking, because you just CMD-L, type your note, click the link, and you're back ...
