Scrivener iOS: Pinch Zoom

DMJ / 1 JUL 2016

Has it been a long day? Have you started squinting at the text in Scrivener’s editor on your iPad or iPhone? The good news is that you don’t require an optometrist. You’re only a simple iOS gesture from salvation. Most text based apps currently have you picking through a complicated menu path with your poor vision to increase text scale, but with Scrivener you can simply pinch to zoom anywhere within your editor in order to make your text larger or smaller.

Scrivener for iPad: The Draft Navigator

KB / 30 JUN 2016

One of Scrivener’s many nifty features on the Mac and Windows is the ability to view the pieces of your manuscript either in isolation or in context. You write your text in chunks as large or small as you like, and then you can view and edit them together as though they were a single document. The feature that allows this we call “Scrivenings mode”.

Scrivener for iOS: Swipe to Expand Your Outlines

KB / 29 JUN 2016

Scrivener’s binder is essentially an outline: one of the key features of Scrivener is that you can use any structure you want when working out how your writing pieces together. Scenes inside chapters inside parts; character sketches inside a notes folder; photographs inside a pictures folder; research notes nested away for the future—however you want to structure your work, Scrivener gives you the freedom to do so.

KB / 28 JUN 2016

In my first post about our iOS version, I thought I’d get some important nuts and bolts out of the way: syncing. Scrivener for iOS syncs with the Mac and Windows versions using Dropbox. Here’s how it works:

Scrivener for iOS: It's Time to Talk

KB / 27 JUN 2016

This month is something of an anniversary for us: it was ten years ago that we launched the Literature & Latte website and forums, after a few months of beta-testing on a temporary Proboard forum. I say “we” - back then it was just me. I was beavering away on Scrivener for Mac, wondering if anyone else would find the writing tool I'd always wanted useful. I never for a moment expected so many would.

A Quick iOS Update

KB / 11 MAR 2015

We have a lot of people asking after the iOS version given that I haven't posted much about it on here recently (although I have been giving incremental updates over on the forums). The lack of updates isn't intended as a slight against our very valued users; it's just because we've had our heads buried in code and haven't been coming up much for air.

The Vapour Trail of Scrivener for iOS

KB / 5 AUG 2014

We’re over halfway through 2014, so I wanted to give our users a quick update on the progress of the iOS version of Scrivener. We receive emails and forum posts daily asking how it is coming along, and because of how long it seems to have been in development, we've even had users assume that it has been abandoned (we've even been accused of lying about it being developed at all, but I promise that’s not the case, even if we have continually underestimated the time involved).
