Re: Saving a web page as a pdf to Scrivener in iOS 13

sidderke - I’ve sorted the pinching now, thanks very much. I find that, depending on the complexity of the webpage, taking the screenshot and then copying to Scrivener (which I’ve now added via a shortcut) can produce a cleaner document, although the file name is lost. Anyway, thanks to you and Ambe...

Re: Saving a web page as a pdf to Scrivener in iOS 13

AmberV - after a bit of stumbling around I’ve now made my first ever iOS shortcut and it seems to work.

Thanks again.

AmberV

Thanks very much. I’ve never used Shortcuts, so I’ll take a look. is Scrivener definitely there among the Open In options?

In the meantime, does anyone from the Scrivener team have any ideas on why the Copy to Scrivener has been lost from the default options in iOS 13?

Re: Saving a web page as a pdf to Scrivener in iOS 13

sidderke - thanks very much for the suggestion. I couldn’t reproduce your handy little sequence, though, which might be my clumsiness or misunderstanding. Once I bring up the print dialogue box no amount of pinching the page image seems to do anything. So I’m not sure whether I’m doing it wrong or w...

Saving a web page as a pdf to Scrivener in iOS 13

Hello iOS 12 provided an easy way for me to convert web pages to pdf in Safari and get them into Scrivener for iOS: tap the square share icon with the vertical arrow, choose ‘create pdf’, then tap it again and the menu would offer me an option to ‘copy to Scrivener’. Very neat and convenient. IOS 13...

Re: Problem with importing websites after update Mac OS Mojave 10.14.4

I've just come across this problem myself and am now regretting having updated to Mac OS 10.14.4. Keith, do you have any estimate for when the next Scrivener update will be? If it's beyond the end of April, I'll give up on web archives for my current project and start importing them as pdfs. Thanks ...

Re: can't view more than one project window

brookter and rdale - thank you very much, that's exactly what was happening . I hadn't noticed the tabs for my various projects at the top of the pane.

can't view more than one project window

Unless I'm missing something obvious, Scrivener seems to have lost the option of having more than one project open and visible onscreen at the same time. It used to be that when I had more than one project open they would sit behind one another like browser windows. That way, I could position them s...

Re: can't set text background colour in 2.0

Eddy, MimeticMouton, KB - thanks, I'm not sure whether it was changing the colour palette mode (I had tried this last night) double-checking the focus, making sure I single-clicked or a combination of the lot, but it's working as I expected now.

Thanks for all your help.

can't set text background colour in 2.0

I'm trying to set the background colour to green as I had it in Scrivener 1. In Preferences>Appearance> I've tried selecting a colour under Customisable Colours>Editor>Text Background but no matter which colour I choose nothing changes. Once I've succeeded in setting it I'd also like to have it as t...
