Re: Moving from Windows to Mac...and back again?

I use OneDrive and experimented with this a while back. What I did was to "Free Up Space" (removing files, leaving meta-data) for a project folder, then reopened it in Scrivener. OneDrive downloaded the files as required, loaded without issue. As long as there is an Internet connection, i...

Re: Dictionary and spelling

I copied all of my custom dictionary into en-US.dic and saved it. After reopening S3, it appears to be working as expected. Is it really that simple? Or am I setting myself up for a gotcha down the road? Say, will en-US.dic be replaced when S3 is updated, and I'll need to merge the two again? That'...

Re: Moving from Windows to Mac...and back again?

Are your projects all marked as "Always keep on this device" in Windows Explorer (and have the corresponding green circle check mark icon under Status, showing that they have all been fully synced?) Remember that OneDrive can do a mode where it syncs the metadata but not the actual files,...

Re: Moving from Windows to Mac...and back again?

Hi! Somehow this hadn't occurred to me. So I just installed the trial version of Scriv 3 for Windows... but when I tried opening a previous project, the binder elements are there but all the text inside each chapter is missing. Another project seems to have opened intact, though. Are your projects ...

Re: Installing on top of previous installation leaves old registry values

Actually, this Control Panel move operates well when there isn’t an uninstalled present. It will in that case tell you the app looks already uninstalled, and ask if you want to remove it from the list. I’ve never had trouble with this; always worked and especially with Scrivener cleanup, but of cou...

Re: KindleGen Out vs Kindle Previewer 3 in

It is now April 2021 and Scrivener still can't generate a Kindle mobi file. Still demanding that I upload Kindlegen, which no longer exists. I use your program to write and to publish, but now it's broken when trying to create files for my biggest customer. Seriously? I have been happy with Scriven...

Re: Confirm Quit

Yeah, I'd recommend an approach of that nature. It would be very unusual to ask for confirmation on quit, especially in a program that auto-saves like Scrivener. Maybe a preference (off by default) that allows such a confirmation to be used by people who want it and don't want to remap their key bi...

Re: Linguistic Focus Options

I'm loving Scrivener so far, but I was very disappointed the Windows version did not have the different options for highlighting words such as adverbs like the Mac version does. Will you be implementing this for the Windows version? It would be a massive help to have such a tool! That facility is, ...

Re: Scrivener users, where do you backup your files?

iCloud sync is a problem because synchronicity fails for the various parts of a project. How do we know Backblaze doesn't have that problem? Backblaze isn't doing anything unique that other backup programs don't do. On Linux and MacOS, you don't generally have volume-level snapshots without using e...

Re: Scrivener users, where do you backup your files?

In that sense [snip a bunch of spurious stuff that isn't really the same thing at all so why the heck did you bring it all up like it was relevant?] A lot of them can't find their zip backups, but I don't say they're not backups because of it. I really thought better of you. That's not even middle ...

Re: Moving Files and Folders Between Projects in IOS Version

Does the latest version of Scrivener iOS allow this moving (or copying) of files and folders between projects? I haven't found a way. It seems odd not to be able to, if that is the case. No. Scrivener for iOS does not allow you to open multiple projects at the same time (in part due to limitations ...

Re: Scrivener users, where do you backup your files?

No, Bob, *it is not*. It is a sync service with versioning (snip) It is *not* a true point-in-time backup service, where you have a discrete set of files that were all backed up at the same time (or close to it, depending on whether your underlying file system has something like a snapshot capabili...

Re: Scrivener users, where do you backup your files?

Dropbox absolutely is a backup location, especially so for zip backups. Even if you delete a file on purpose, it's still there for 30+ days. More than once, after buying a new Mac, I've restored from Dropbox. I'm puzzled what else we'd want from a "backup". No, Bob, *it is not*. It is a s...

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...
