Re: Scrivener for iOS - When?

I've seen a review of Ulysses 2.5 on the iPad Pro on one of the Apple news sites. Reviewer found it so great to use he's cast aside his MacBook 12" in favour of doing all his mobile work on the Pro. I'm certain Scrivener for iOS will be even better on the Pro. Don't bother with Ulysses - unles...

Backup errors

I am suddenly having trouble with the backup feature in Scrivener 2 for Mac. I have been working on the same project for a number of months now. When I upgraded to Scrivener 2, the automatic backups worked fine. At first, I left preferences as they were but became quickly annoyed at the time it took...

Force Scrivener to use a particular dictionary?

I write a lot in Catalan and Spanish. There seems to be no way of forcing Scrivener to spell check using a particular dictionary for a project. What I mean is, obviously, I can do this manually (Spelling and grammar .....) but I'd like to be able to set one dictionary to be used with a project as th...

Re: Scrivener as Dedicated Research Database

I have a rough draft of a step-by-step guide to learning MultiMarkdown which I am about a week away from posting everywhere. It's something I've been wanting to do for a while, and had a bit of spare time. Ultimately, I want to create a complete guide that goes from very basic "my first MMD he...

Re: Problems Markdown>RTF in language with diacritical marks

This worked for me and I didn't have the black screen bug. Thanks. I did want to install MMD in the root Library, however, but couldn't work out the correct command to get Terminal to see it there, so I ended up placing MMD in the User/Library folder. Any chance of the RTF compile problem being corr...

Problems Markdown>RTF in language with diacritical marks

I'm writing web content in Catalan, which has accents or diacritical marks (that coincide with those in French), using markdown. Scrivener exports to html with no problems and saves me loads of time here. However, I also need to send the same content for revision in a Word-friendly format. The markd...

NaNoWriMo project file incompatible![ADDRESSED]

After losing my installation of Scrivener for Windows Beta 3 trying to uninstall Beta 1, I found, after reinstalling, that certain parts of the NaNoWriMo scriv file were missing. I decided to redownload the project file from the NaNoWriMo page you have (NaNoWriMoWinTemplate.zip) and cast out the pre...

Re: Could not open tutorial

Eventully managed to view tutorial. Don't think I changed anything, except the beta version, so maybe that's what was wrong.

Re: CURRENT BETA DOWNLOAD (RELEASE 1.3)

I've downloaded what is apparently Beta 3 yet when I start up Scrivener, it informs me that I'm about to use Scrivener Beta 1.0, running out 12th December. Any explanations?

Do I need to uninstall Beta 1.0? If so, how? I tried and Win 7 wiped out my whole Scrivener install.

Re: Import of Mac files makes folders.

. So: weird. At least there's a pretty good workaround (just copy everything from the old and put in a new). Not the zestiest, but hey, livable. I vaguely suspect there aren't many people who are going to be in this boat, but providing info on the workaround would be good for them. kdbertel, I too ...

Default font not respected[BUG LOGGED]

The default font set in options is apparently Verdana regular 12 yet any new text I create is automatically in Verdan regular 14.

Tried reestablishing verdana 12 and applying but the same thing happens again.

Cannot manually reposition files in Research

I have been trying to reposition manually a pdf file imported into the Research folder with no success. It will happily move to a folder in the Research section, to the trash, or as a sub-whatever of a text file. It will not sit where I want it, though; just below three text files and before the fir...
