Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9½ - SPECIAL APOCALYPSE EDITION

Got my thermometer, my horse and my pen. Put me down for a chapter again. (BTW, where do I get my mug from last time?)

Re: How to Remove Hyper-Link Underlines in Scrivener 3.0?

To do this, you would Select All in the editor (Cmd-A) and then use Edit > Remove Link. This will remove all links from the selected text. (Note that in the current version, this command will not be available if there are any comments in the selected text - this will be fixed in the next update.) A...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9

I just finished my first novel and I think I'm ready for this challenge at last. Please add me to the list and give me a task brimming with action, romance, agony and recipes.

Re: Use meta-data to add date?

Is there a separate tag for the project modification date?

Use meta-data to add date?

I want to add today's date automatically to the Front Matter of a screenplay each time I compile it. I can create a Custom Meta-Data 'Date' field and print it using <$Custom:Date>, but I'd like to make the process automatic. Today's date is in the General Meta-Data and I've tried <$Modified> and <$C...

Re: Define Keyboard Shortcuts

I've just worked out the solution, and it was my misunderstanding about how to create keyboard shortcuts. In the System Prefs/Keyboard/Keyboard Shortcuts/ Applications/Scrivener I had labelled the shortcut Shift-Cmd-U "Format Convert To Uppercase". Now I have changed it to simply "To ...

Re: Define Keyboard Shortcuts

How are you accomplishing this case toggles? I would have assumed you were using some formatting presets in Scrivener, but that wouldn't apply to all applications. I'm using System Preferences/Keyboard/Shortcuts/App Shortcuts/All Applications. I am using the shortcut Shift-Cmd-U because this is the...

Define Keyboard Shortcuts

A shortcut I often need in scriptwriting is "Convert to Uppercase". In my System Preferences there is a Keyboard Shortcut for All Applications: "tOGGLE cASE" = Shift-Command-U. It works in Scrivener, except it also converts the font from Courier (Prime Regular 12pt) to Helvetica ...

<$Draft> metadata for Scriptwriting

When writing a screenplay it is usual to go through many drafts, often with input from multiple contributors. It would be useful if the draft number (e.g. Draft 4.02) could be part of the project metadata so that on the Title Page <$Draft> would update with each Compile. Maybe it is possible now. I'...

Re: Convert shortcuts

I guess I've found a partial answer to my own question. The DEVONTechnologies WordService app (http://www.devontechnologies.com/download/products.html) puts an All Caps option in the Services Menu. Command-Shift-U. Neat. Worth including in the Scrivener Manual.

Convert shortcuts

In film scriptwriting, the first time a character or prop is mentioned the convention is to write it in UPPERCASE. But often, in the heat of writing, you forget and have to go back and make these changes retrospectively. It would save a lot of mouse work of there were keyboard shortcuts for Convert ...

Re: about the ipad app 'indexcard'

The reason I love Scrivener is that it's an application for writers made by people who can write. Also, in the File > Sync > with Index Card panel, be sure to click on the purple question mark, as that explains the process thoroughly. I never click on those question marks because 90% of the time the...
