Re: License buying

As I understand it, you pay for the major updates e.g. moving from V1.x to 2.x but the minor upgrades (e.g. 1.2 to 1.3) are free. I also believe there’s upgrade pricing for existing users.

I think I read that V2 of the Windows version is likely sometime (late?) in 2013.

thanks.

I think the 'over target' progress bar would also work for normal targets as it also shows by how much you've exceeded your target, which should be very pleasing although perhaps you'd want a colour other than red to show it in that scenario.

Re: Change word target progress bar to red if over target?

Ok, thanks, I've got that working via the outline screen (although I can't pretend I fundamentally understand it) but to get it working, I still have to set separate targets for individual documents, correct? So, I can't get the progress bar to always appear and measure the project target, is that r...

Re: Change word target progress bar to red if over target?

Thanks for the feedback but I'm not sure that will get the effect I asked for. Maybe I'm being dense but I can't get the round target icon to appear when a folder containing documents is selected (that's a container, right?), and I don't know any other way to make the progress bar appear. I apprecia...

Change word target progress bar to red if over target?

The way I write is to do a brain dump at the start, then make pass after pass, cutting away the superfluous waffle. So, early on, I have too much text that I need to cut away. Would it be possible for a) the little target bar that appears on the right of the footer bar to be on all the time i.e. sho...

Re: Last letter goes missing when trying to look up words

Thanks for the thought but I created the project on the Mac and typed it all in fresh. There are other words that also show the problem, I've just been using that one as the example. I just tried typing 'Instantly' somewhere else in the doc and it also shows the same problem.

Re: Last letter goes missing when trying to look up words

Hhmm. I created a new user account as you asked, logged into that account, ran Scrivener and started a new project, I typed in a few words including 'instantly', double clicked it to select the word, right clicked and chose 'Look up' and it worked fine i.e. looked up the word 'instantly'. But, then ...

Re: Last letter goes missing when trying to look up words

Thanks for the advice but no joy. The file didn't exist in the first location but I found it in the second location and deleted it. I then ran Scrivener (and saw my preferences had gone) but when I tried to look up 'instantly' it still tried to look up 'instantl'. So, I quit and restored the file to...

Last letter goes missing when trying to look up words

When I double click on a word in Scrivener to select it, then right click and select 'Look up' it looks up the word but missing the last letter. So, for example, 'instantly' becomes 'instantl' as seen below. When I try the same thing in TextEdit, the whole word is used correctly so it appears to be ...

Re: Questions about pictures and compiling.

Hi Mark, No I hadn't thought about having the pictures in their own documents - great idea! Keith's suggestion of using 'Image Linked to File' seems to have fixed the saving problem and I'm sure your suggestion will allow me to print out a copy of the text only (not as convenient as having a tick bo...

Questions about pictures and compiling.

I'm writing an article with a number of illustrations in it. This is the first serious thing I've done in Scrivener since getting my Mac so I'm not fully familiar with it all yet (yes, I've done the tutorial) so I have a few questions. 1 - I know there are few serious formatting options but just wan...

Re: Collaborative Hand-drawn ideas repository?

I'm pretty sure that both Evernote and Microsoft's Onenote are able to 'read' hand drawn notes making them searchable. So, perhaps you could scribble your notes onto paper or a whiteboard as normal, take a snap with a digital camera then upload those pictures to Evernote where they'd be archived and...

Re: Here's an alternative set of icons

Yep, it's frustrating but I believe the intention is for the Windows version to have all the functions found on the Mac eventually (including the ability to change and add icons), it's just that it's been in development for much less time than the Mac version so the developer hasn't had time yet to ...
