Good to know that. Thanks!

Re: WIndows 3 Release: My Thoughts

...As for now, L&L I appreciate your work very much and I sympathize completely with your wanting to release nothing less than the best. Here's hoping you do much better than I. I wanted to ask: Once scr for Win 3 is out of beta and released to the masses -- will ver. 1.9.x continue to be suppo...

Re: Using Scrivener with a Chromebook

...One thing I really miss on the CBook: no back-lighted keys :( Unfortunately, though I'm almost convinced my new little chromebook will walk on water, it doesn't have the back-lighted keys. But then, coming to this from the low-end price ranges in Windows laptops, I've not experienced the luxury ...

Using Scrivener with a Chromebook

I found the idea for this on a writing forum. It works perfectly for me. I have Scrivener for Windows installed on my main computer, an aging Acer Aspire laptop. I want to do most of my writing and other professional stuff on a new (and fantastic!) ASUS C200 Chromebook I purchased two weeks ago for ...

Re: Multiple copies and confusion?

Ah, excellent suggestions. I remember reading about backing up files in ZIP format, but it never occurred to me how useful that could be in preventing me from working on the wrong copy. Thanks.

Re: Multiple copies and confusion?

I don't think there is, but you can just use File->Open and navigate to the one you want to work on. If you don't know where your copies are, you can search for that name + .scriv, and find the project folders wherever they live on your computer. Thanks for the reply. I am so new to Scrivener yet t...

Multiple copies and confusion?

Is there a quick, easy way to see the path information of the current project on which I'm working? Let me clarify my problem: I'm relatively new to using Scrivener, and relatively paranoid about losing information. So I set up an auto-backup feature and save to Dropbox. Then I manually save the pro...

Re: What does "N/A" in corkboard view mean?

That'll be a 'status' stamp. Right click on the card, or document in the binder, etc. One of the options there is 'Status' where you apply the kind of watermark stamp you are seeing to any document. Change to 'No status' and you are good to go! Have a read through sectio 10.1 in the manual on Meta-...

What does "N/A" in corkboard view mean?

OK, I tried to search the forums for "N/A," and I get the message it's too short to find results. I have never really looked at my Scrivener for Windows projects in the corkboard review until this morning. I discovered that each of the cards displayed in corkboard has a sort of translucent...

Driving a stake through the heart of Courier font ...

I tried using the forum "search" features on this, but honestly didn't see anything that was helpful. In a nutshell -- I would like all, and I mean ALL, of the documents and other elements I create in a project to be in Times New Roman 12 point. I do not want to have to go through each pro...

Ah, yes. Of course, I see that now. Got it. Thanks again.

Learning fun new terminology here! Good for the old brain.

Thanks, Amber, that was helpful.

Next question -- where do I put the NaNoWriMoNovel.ini file?

Where Are Templates Located in Windows?

Hi, I've tried a few of the betas, and just purchased the 1.xx version of Windows Scrivener. Very excited! How and where do I put the unzipped files from the NaNoWriMo free templates? The only instructions I've found a pretty vague -- sort of like, put stuff anywhere you'd like. Maybe not that vague...

Re: A few stupid questions

Thanks, Jenny, for tipping me off to the dropbox discussions on the Mac side of the world. And I really did appreciate Keith's post about how to safely use dropbox -- which I assume works for either Mac or Windows Scrivener.
