Re: Using Scrivener with Dropbox

Ok, I understand now. I generally close projects when I am done with a computer, however I don't necessarily wait on the sync to finish. (or have network access when I am done with the computer) I'll just have to get into the habit of opening the laptop when I get somewhere with networking if I've w...

Re: Using Scrivener with Dropbox

Ok, So I'm slightly confused... The last thing I recall seeing was that one shouldn't store the .scriv bundle in the synced dropbox folder... Today I stumble across this blog post: http://www.literatureandlatte.com/blog/?p=713 which talks about setting up iOScriv to use the drop box folder. Am I rea...

Re: Backups not backing up

I don't know what I did, but it has started working... Now I have a different problem: I checked the box to append the date and time to the backups because I thought it would be easier, but I find it annoying and want it to go away.... I can't seem to do that... Now what should I do? (I've unchecked...

Re: Backups not backing up

Well, On the MacBook Air, I dumped the prefs off to the desktop and restarted the program. The only things I changed was to not reopen projects on launch, and to make backups on manual saves and adding time stamps as well. Only other thing changed from the defaults was the location of the file backu...

Backups not backing up

Greetings, After getting tired of sugarsync completely screwing up my projects, I have switched to using the backups that the program creates and working off of local copies. However, I have discovered that the copy of Scrivener that is installed on my MacBook Air is not creating backup copies of th...

Re: Part and Chapter Numbers

What part specifically are you having trouble with? The basic way I'd suggest doing this is to set up the "Part <$t>:" bit as the folder prefix (as explained above, using whatever variable is appropriate) and then to check the box to include the folder title as well, assuming that the bin...

Re: Part and Chapter Numbers

Keith, Not to dredge up an old topic, but I'm currently working on a piece that has multiple parts to it. Using these directions, I have the program compiling with the part numbers and chapter numbers appearing where they should, but I want a page that has the name of the part (in this case, Part on...

Re: Just discovered Editing Mode (ON MAC version)

I will admit that this is something that I've never quite figured out how to use... I'm current,y working on a rewrite of a story and this might be useful to learn somewhere a little further down the road for when I get into edits of the rewrite...

Re: Scriv on iPad, Redux?

Add me into the group that would pay for a version of Scrivener for the iPad. Having just picked one up to supplement my Air and IMac for school, I've noticed that there are times when I could have just pulled out the laptop and started working on something... I do currently use the simple note sync...

Re: Templates

Keith, Ah ha! I knew there had to be some way to do it, (and for some reason, holding the option key never entered into my mind) This will save me some time as I adjust the default templates for the way I use the program. I will also confirm that it does work as I just tried it and viola, no automat...

Templates

I thought I posted this, but it apparently got eaten by the internet by the time it made it to the server... Is there a way to open a template without having the program fill in the template tags on the title page? I've been working on cleaning up the templates to better suit my workflow as well as ...

Re: Another Split view suggestion

I've found that locking the editor, even with the selection in preferences is set so that "binder affects other editor" doesn't always preform the way that I *think* it should. Sometimes I have to select the other editor and then what I was trying to display there. Slightly annoying, but i...
