How to link to a bookmark or para

I use document links – with gratitude. Now exploring whether I could link to a specific paragraph, I came across this discussion post which also mentioned bookmarks. https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=55943&p=284957&hilit=internal+links#p284957 Having downloade...

Re: Save to Dropbox sometimes does, sometimes doesn't

Thanks, Katherine ... a couple of helpful suggestions. I'm just out to get Scrivener working, saving and syncing more reliably. For me, this is a Scrivener/Dropbox issue only and it is occasional and overcomable, but like any unreliability it is annoying. From my limited experience but quite wide us...

Re: Save to Dropbox sometimes does, sometimes doesn't

JimRac posted: Be sure to monitor the status of the DropBox app on your Mac. Perhaps it's pausing for some reason. On my PC, if my wifi is having issues, the DropBox app will pause, and the app does not always immediately come back online with return of wifi--sometimes it takes a while. So if you ar...

Re: Save to Dropbox sometimes does, sometimes doesn't

Thanks for responses. Dropbox is set up conventionally and everything saves to the one folder, nothing on the device, Mac or iOS. I have read the manual and the guides and I am not finding answers. As explained, when I "Save" and then "Sync" on the Mac, changes are (often) not re...

Save to Dropbox sometimes does, sometimes doesn't

I'm using 3.1.1 on a Macbook Pro and also the iOS apps. All set up to save and sync on Dropbox, which is very reliable on other apps. I have just lost 2 most recent chapters while investigating why they wouldn't sync to either of my iOS apps. However I tried to save, and to sync, on all devices, the...

Re: Scrivener + Scapple ... writing and mapping on the same application

I would like Scapple to work from within Scrivener. It's a logical way to progress.

Till then, I'll explore bookmarks.

Re: x-callback-URL

Thanks, AmberV, helpful clarity.

I would note that iOS can do folders now, so a callback from Mac to iOS or iOS to Mac could invoke the Scrivener app and folder (they would be synced) on either platform. I understand that a full callback scheme would present some challenges.

Re: x-callback-URL

I keep my callbacks in Day One. Day One didn't parse the '///' form but did see the '//' as a link. When I tried it with Apple Notes it was the other way round. With Agenda, either form worked. The Scrivener callbacks don't look like 'proper' URL callbacks, and they don't seem to work from another p...

Re: x-callback-URL

Thanks for that. The x-scrivener-item// protocol works. However, the link generated by (right-click) copy document link or Edit > Copy Special > Copy Document as External Link gives a linbk beginning with x-scrivener-item/// Like this: x-scrivener-item:///Users/iangreig/Dropbox%20(Personal)/Scrivene...

Re: Change assignment of keyboard shortcuts?

Thanks for that advice. I've got my Cmd-K shortcut for Link... working, but I need to assign a new shortcut for Split.

This goes through a drop-down, ie:

Split
at Selection

How do you do that, in setting a new keyboard preference?
'Split' doesn't work
'Split at Selection' doesn't work

Change assignment of keyboard shortcuts?

Is it possible to change a shortcut that is 'baked in'? Only being a very occasional script writer, I would like to use the cmd-8 'Script' shortcut for something else.

Re: Editor styles corrupted in 3.0.1 (966)

It was the scriptwriting toggle, very helpful, thank you so much.

Is there a way to re-assign a shortcut such as that cmd-8?

Re: Editor styles corrupted in 3.0.1 (966) Update

After a clean install of Scrivener (following removal with AppManager) I still can't shake these rogue styles – they are still there. Database corruption? The main difficulty is that I am getting an all-caps style. How do I set characters to caps/small caps/ulc? If I could access this as a character...
