Re: Convert italics and bold to BBCode during Compile?

Thank you, AmberV. I may dig into that and play with it. I am using Pandoc on my system for one other use case, although its inner workings are a mystery to me.

GR, thanks for the suggestion. Fortunately, it was only a few changes, so it took me about 5 minutes doing a search and replace.

Re: Convert italics and bold to BBCode during Compile?

Thank you for the reply. I taught myself Styles last night, and created a style to apply the italics. I also just created a Keyboard Maestro macro to intercept my Cmd-I keystroke (in Scrivener only), and enter my Style shortcut keystroke. A bit quicker for me. Regarding Markdown, I actually use it a...

Re: Convert italics and bold to BBCode during Compile?

I just stumbled upon the discovery that, at least for italics, this is a built-in option. In the Compile settings for TXT files, under Markup put your BBCode in the boxes for "Enclosing markers for unstyled italics" as shown in the attached image.

Convert italics and bold to BBCode during Compile?

I need to share a piece of a Scrivener document on a phpBB forum. I'm compiling from Scrivener into plain text, and am wondering if it is possible to surround all instances of bold and italicized words with the BBCode for bold and italics. So, for example, a bolded phrase would end up as <b>This is ...

Re: Windows + iOS Sync not working

I can confirm that the "make small change" fix works on the Mac, too. I had moved a project out of my sync folder, and then later moved it back in. Thereafter, I was getting errors trying to open the project on iOS (telling me it was created with an earlier version of Scrivener, which it w...

Re: Scrivener for Apple Watch

You could always use the Drafts app to dictate into your watch, and then (after opening the text on your iPhone) have a Drafts action to send your text into the Scrivener scratch pad. I've done this before, but can't remember if you can customize the location of the scratch pad files, or if I set up...

Re: External folder sync on two Macs

Thanks, AmberV, that got me to the place I needed. My Dropbox path on my second computer (iMac with a smaller main SSD drive) was located in a custom location on a second larger internal drive, so I had to make the symlink within the Dropbox folder itself (because the path from root to Dropbox didn'...

Re: External folder sync on two Macs

If that is the problem you are running in to, try using a symbolic link to fake the other user name on the second computer. Let me know if you need instructions. I’ve used that technique extensively in the past, when I had a work computer with a different user name. Sorry to bring this thread back ...

Re: Writing on an iPhone 6 Plus

I recently got an iPhone 6 Plus and I would really, really like to use it to write while at work (on lunch, of course) but none of the apps I have work as well as Textilus. I haven't tried it extensively enough to know if it will suit your needs, but after a long search a month or two ago, I did do...

Re: Instead of mobile apps, just allow editing RTF

I use the "sync to external folder" feature, and it is pretty seamless to then edit in Textilus on the iPad. Textilus uses RTF files. Edits in either place propogate back and forth. (My structure is already in place, so my edits are just to scene contents).

Re: Change default block quote format

Thanks very much for pointing me in the right direction. Setting a new preset solved my issue. I see I have much to learn about the app :D .

Change default block quote format

For legal briefs, I'd like to have my block quotes single spaced, with an equal left and right indent, and with the font size matching the font size of the main body of my document. I presume that I can do this upon compiling, but is there a way to also have them appear this way in the text editing ...

Re: Editing docs on iPhone synced via Dropbox ?

Hopefully it isn't bad form to revive this thread from the dead, but I was searching for an app that did the same. After dropping some money on a couple iPhone apps that appeared to support RTF files, I finally found one that did, Cool Writer: http://www.coolrabbits.com/Cool-Writer/ I haven't tried ...

Sorry to bring this post back from the dead, but for those having trouble selecting this template file from the import screen (it was greyed out and not selectable for me), deleting the ".txt" extension from a normal Finder window isn't enough (at least for me it wasn't). You have to go in...
