Re: ARM

Apparently re-compiling may not even be necessary:

ARM will be Easy

Just saw this.
Maybe there will be no need to worry about recompiling.

Re: apply default format to entire project

Sorry, I’m not really sure if we are on the same topic at this point, and I’m having a hard time understanding the context of your question in the framework of converting default formatting in text files. None of the outliner or outlining commands would be relevant to changing the font and such. Th...

Re: apply default format to entire project

I'd love to be able to do this: What is (the) Outliner View? View>Outliner Options=everything is greyed out except "Use Fixed Row Height" View>Outline>=everything is greyed out except "Show Subdocument Counts in Binder" I vaguely remember using Scrivenings in v.2.0 but I don't se...

Compile Help

1. I can't figure out how to change the section fonts in Compile. After choosing a new font, clicking "Save" does nothing; the new font is not selected. https://ibb.co/vwjcVqm https://ibb.co/vwjcVqm Format>Draft>PDF does not override the project font settings either. https://ibb.co/wrdhQfj...

Re: Virus Attack! or, Backing Up to the Cloud, Google Version

Google treats the *.wp file as a Wordperfect file and so you bypass the virus filters. And here I thought Google hired the finest. So I guess according to them, if I take a plain text file with “HA HA” typed into it, and .zip it, now becomes a potential virus. That indeed appears to be the case.

Re: Virus Attack! or, Backing Up to the Cloud, Google Version

I agree, I don't really understand the need for emailing the project. I would just zip it and save it in the cloud somewhere. You could even set up a free account somewhere just for the purpose of holding that zipped project. Mega, Box, Sync, and many others have free space available in the cloud. ...

Re: Virus Attack! or, Backing Up to the Cloud, Google Version

Maybe Google Mail (you are referring to Google Mail , aren't you?) has a problem with the .scriv package format. Why don't you mail an actual .zip file of your project to yourself? You haven't turned off automatic backup of your projects, have you? By default Scrivener backs up zipped projects to a...

Re: Virus Attack! or, Backing Up to the Cloud, Google Version

The project xxx.scriv is a folder, not a file. It just looks like a file in Finder, i.e it is a package, a folder looking like a file. So do what Suavito suggests - mail a zipped backup. This does not work. You can't send a *.zip file; it is caught by Google's anti-virus filters. I tried, As it tur...

Re: Virus Attack! or, Backing Up to the Cloud, Google Version

This worked; thought I'd share it with the group. I don't know if the *.tar compression is necessary. 1. Duplicate *.scriv file. 2. Use a 3rd party program to create a *.tar archive. 3. Change the extension of the file created from *.scriv.tar to *.wp 4. Send this file. 5. If you need to recover you...

Re: Virus Attack! or, Backing Up to the Cloud, Google Version

Tried creating a disk image file (*.dmg). Same result.
Tried creating a Unix compressed file (*.tar). Same result.
There must be some way to do this.

Virus Attack! or, Backing Up to the Cloud, Google Version

I finished the first draft of a translation. My Scrivener 3.0 project contains text, and only text (OK, maybe some *.rtf text snuck in). Pleased with my work and having suffered waaay too many external drive failures (not to mention internal drive failures) I attempted to email a copy of my work to ...

Re: Is it possible to reduce large Scrivener 3 files with images?

For print, photos need to be at least 300 dpi. For digital output, 72 dpi is acceptable. If you don't have a program to reduce resolution or file size, there are web alternatives (compress-or-die.com) and others which will take on the task. Why not keep 72 dpi photos in the Scrivener project and kee...

Just wondered if Keith and his team have plans for a native ARM version in view of leaks about Apple's forthcoming laptops.

Scrivener vs. Mac OS Text Engine

I would like to type the following, without any automatic intervention:

(a)
(b)
(c)

Unfortunately, Scrivener changes these lower case letters to capitals. Capitals won't work in my text.
How can I prevent Scrivener from substituting capitals?

Thank you.
