Lost images

Hello, I have just finished the first draft of my textbook (330 images!). I had to export it to Word to number them. However, for several weeks I kept on finding lost images - certain documents had maybe half of the images replaced with grey rectangular smudges. I could not recover them without rebu...

Ordering images in an academic book

Hello! I have spent the last year writing an academic textbook in Scrivener - and now it is almost finished. However, I have just been using basic commands to cut/paste/split etc - marvellous to organize thoughts etc., I couldn't have done it otherwise. Now I need to finish it off. Firstly I need to...

Re: Save and Rebuild Search Indexes

Hello again. After a good night's sleep - problem solved. I created a blank document and copied the major headings into it, one by one, checking I could search after each step. I could. I found that the search became extremely slow for items with many large images. Before my rebuild I could type in ...

Save and Rebuild Search Indexes

Hello, I have a fairly large project, with lots of images, that I am working on regularly. For some time now if I used the search/magnifier box Scrivener hung up, but I was not too worried and carried on working without it. With 1.8 I tried it again, and it still hung up - so I started with a dummy ...

Dragon dictation

I have happily used Dragon 12 and 12.5 with Scrivener (including 1.7.2.0 and now 1.7.3.0) for some time - what a great combination! Nuance have recently issued Dragon 13, which is a significant jump from 12.5, and I was very happy to buy it. However, it will no longer find Scrivener in order to type...

Re: Importing images

Hello MM, thanks for your reply: it is reassuring that the problem is being looked at. I would like to note in passing that the strategy you are suggesting does not seem to be a good idea - at least for me - for the following reasons: 1: I have checked various documents from various people (I am oft...

Re: Importing images

Hello! Will someone be looking at this? It appears (to me) to be a clear bug - at least in the latest version. In addition, can anyone suggest any kind of work-around? As I mentioned, I am writing a textbook and if I put in all my source documents I must have at least 500 diagrams - too many to cut ...

Re: Importing images

Hello, Thanks for looking at this! I tested the issue by trying to load various academic papers in Word, both from other people/countries and of my own over many years, and I have the same problem. Many of these have been sent to publishers for printing in books or journals with no difficulty. It se...

Re: Importing images

Hello,
Here is part of a paper with some figures in it. When I try and load it Scrivener gets stuck for a long time.
If I try and load the whole paper things are much worse.
I am using version 1.2.5.0 on Windows 7.
Many thanks,
Chris Gold

Importing images

Hello, I am importing some Word documents, in the process of writing a textbook. If I convert to .rtf the images are fine, but on importing to the Research folder 90%+ of them are lost - becoming large grey smudges, and the same is true with .doc files. The large smudges are treated as images, but t...

Help in merging several input documents

Hello! I am writing a textbook, based on half a dozen different but overlapping reviews I wrote previously. I would like to highlight each topic in each review and then bring them together: I would then select the best fragment for each topic and use the merged topics as the basis for the text. (Man...

Re: USER POLL-WHICH 3 FEATURES DO YOU WANT SECOND AFTER RELEASE?

Hello - I am one of the academic writers you mentioned concerning BibTex - although as a Windows user I use Endnote. So that would be good. My other priority (my 'first') would be a freeform corkboard for laying out the order of text. If I have a variety of 'topics' (one for each card) each one may ...

Dear MM, Thank you so much for replying! I am working my way through your examples. As a computer scientist, after reading your message I went back and tried to think in first principles. This is what I came up with: Story Structures Previous examples: In the ‘Noises Off’ example I need to track fro...

Endnote

As I am eagerly awaiting Scrivener for Windows (I couldn't start my life over again on a Mac, even if it looks as if my life will be saved by SforW - deep gratitude guys) and I have a fair part of my academic life in Endnote - I would be very grateful for any suggestions as to how to marry the two. ...

...all those sardines...

If you ever saw "Noises Off" you will remember the hilarity generated when the plate of sardines was not on the table on the stage as required in the third act... When I am writing long-ish stories I am always getting lost about the key Annie mentioned to Fred who put it in the cookie jar ...
