importing a .mobi file

Is it possible to import a .mobi file into Scrivener so I can work on it? It was originally produced on Scrivener but I have lost the original scrivener file.

Re: Linux 1.6.1.1 Beta Released

Hi, I have just downloaded the tar file but can't unpack it. I am using Arch and when I run makepkg, I am told the PKGBUILD does not exist. Is there one for Arch?

(SOLVED) Creating a hyperlink for a pic to a web page

Hi, I want to create a hyperlink from a pic of one of my books on Amazon to its web page on Amazon.

I don't want the book's web addr...

Re: News on Linux Scrivener after 31st March?

I am using the linux version for my new book, Fun with an MGA. It is my 39th book and the first using this version. Previous books were written using the Mac version of Scriviner and I am a true believer in this wonderful writing aid. Keep up the good work and thanks a million. By the way, I am usin...

Re: Manuscript in Binder veiw

Thanks AmberV. Yes, I did have the indentations corrects but for some reason the final chapter didn't fall within the manuscript. All looked OK on the Binder, but it was obviously outside the contents of the manuscript. Clicking the disclosure triangle proved that. All I did to fix things was simply...

Manuscript in Binder veiw

If I click on Manuscript in the Binder view (left hand panel) on the right in the main window I see the text of the entire manuscript displayed. However, if I scroll down the text by using my mouse, I only get so far and not all the way to the last few documents in the manuscript. The documents all ...

Re: Changing the level of a text document

Thanks Keith, that's terrific. That's exactly the information I seek. Beautiful. What I was doing was this: click on 'manuscript' in the binder, then go to 'view mode' and click the right hand side icon. This brings up a map of the manuscript with all the documents. I then highlighted the one I want...

Re: Changing the level of a text document

Hi Keith, strangely, drag and drop didn't work. That's what floored me. I am talking here about moving a document from level 1 to level 2 in importance. Level 1 is for chapters and gets the chapter heading while level two does not: they are sub sections within the chapter. So drag and drop didn't wo...

Part and Chapter Numbers

I want to use Part and Chapter numbers in a book I am writing but can't seem to do this. So for instance I need to have Part One, Chapter One, Two, Three, Part Two, Chapter One, Two, Three, etc. At present all I can achieve is Part One, Chapter Two, etc. They run sequentially instead of the Chapters...

Scriviner icon not appearing in my menu

I run Mint LXDE and Scriviner loaded up well first time. Only thing I have noticed is that the Scriviner icon is missing from my menu. I have Scriviner saved in Applications/Office. The icon is missing but the title is there.
