Re: Usefulness of the iOS app?

Be sure to allow plenty of time for syncs to complete, notice immediately if anything seems off, and know what to do if that happens (restore from a recent zip backup). We've had some other users talk about Cirrus for the MacOS side to monitor iCloud sync status -- is there anything on the iOS side...

Re: Usefulness of the iOS app?

Hi Everyone, I have Scrivener on Mac and currently backup to Icloud. I'm fairly mobile and have been thinking about getting scrivener on iOS but I understand I can't use Icloud. I really don't want to use Dropbox because I already pay for cloud storage through iCloud. Am I stuck just using Scrivene...

Re: Usefulness of the iOS app?

Dropbox is free (currently) as long as you only log in on three machines, which is why I use it., One Mac, One PC laptop, One iPad. Actually, the iOS version of Scrivener doesn't even count against that limit. As long as you don't install the Dropbox client on your iOS device. If you do that, it wi...

Re: New search bar behavior is confusing and inconvenient, help?

Are you using Quick Search or Project Search? The manual chapter 11 covers the differences between the two, and you can access the manual from within Scrivener by pressing F1.

Re: Wind your watch

and the butt-clench flying a fixed wing through a downdraft at 500, oops now 200 feet. Many years back, I was on a United flight making our approach into O'Hare on a fairly turbulent day. I had the entertainment system tuned to the channel that let you listen to the radio channel the pilots were tu...

Re: Wind your watch

On the other hand, as a fire pilot, hydro line pilot, slinging diamond drills, gravity surveys with a bomb hanging off the bottom that needed to be at 100 feet, and on and on, I can suggest that if you don't know where you're going to go and what you're going to do when you have a problem (no matte...

Re: Wind your watch

Unless you're in a helicopter. It's funny you say this, because I just watched a demonstration last night of auto-rotation in a helicopter that was up at about 5,000 feet. For the first chunk of time, all the pilot did was keep calm and maintain their normal flight routine while talking through the...

Re: WORDS ARE KING to writers - THEY ARE OUR #1 PRIORITY!

FWIW, most writers are not Neal Stephenson, and even he IMO is sometimes a bit overly casual with the reader's attention. True, but that wasn't the point Lunk seemed to be trying to make. Taken to its logical conclusion, "What’s the point of using words that the reader doesn’t understand?"...

Re: Word wrap around images + TOC and Appendix questions

If you need to do layout, you need a layout app, like Affinity Publisher. Scrivener can compile to many formats, but it’s not a wysiwyg editor and not a layout tool. Using the Markdown capabilities, though, you can use the built-in support to compile to LaTeX, pandoc, or other programamtic layout s...

Re: Multiple cursors?

No, I'm not talking about selecting a whole bunch of text. I'm referring to the feature in other applications where you hold down the Alt key and drag down to create multiple blinking cursors so that you can add text to multiple lines all at once. Is this feature avaiable in scrivener? aka "co...

Re: Quick Search not accessible when removed from toolbar

Scrivener for Windows 3.0.0.0 64-bit Per section 11.5.4 of the manual, the Win+Ctrl+G shortcut is supposed to pop up a Quick Search window if you have removed it from your main toolbar.

Re: How do I fix the search bar?

Section 11 of the manual goes into the specific behaviors to expect from the various search tools within Scrivener. The area you are talking about in particular is the Quick Search, covered in section 11.5.
