Re: Trouble with Scrivener on iPhone

I've had the same issue, but switching the iPhone from Automatic to Dark Mode at all times, and Scrivener from System Default to Dark fixes the problem. I tend to use Scrivener on the Dark setting no matter what, but it seems if it doesn't match the iPhone's current mode, then it screws up for me.

Editor problem on iPhone

The editor has suddenly developed a quirk on iPhone when editing a document. When I press return to start a new paragraph, the next line drops below the onscreen keyboard so that I can’t see what I’m typing. I have to the drag the page up slightly every time to be able to see it. Same thing happens ...

I've recently started using http://brain.fm which is excellent for mood music.

Any good resources for 1970s fashion?

I'm writing a book set in New York in the nineteen seventies. I guess other than movies from the period, I'm trying to get a more detailed feel for the fashion of that time. Unless I'm looking in the wrong places, Google doesn't seem to be turning up a great deal. Does anyone know of any good books/...

3 act and 5 act structure - excellent article!

Came across this excellent article about the myth of the 3 act structure, and how the 5 act structure is better. It's written in the style of the HULK, but don't let that put you off! :D Apologies if it's been posted before. Just thought I'd share it, if it hasn't. I think you'll all find it quite i...

Re: When bad characters do bad things

Yes, I've encountered people like this. They usually tend to be pretty close minded people anyway, so I just ignore them. Using their rationale, I assume they think most thriller writers are probably closet serial killers.

Mood music (to get you in the mood)

Anyone listen to music when writing? Maybe you put on a particular piece to get you in the right frame of mind. If so, what do you listen to? As an example, at the minute I'm listening to Rubycon by Tangerine Dream. It's pretty long, about 40 minutes in length, and has a weird, creepy, sci-fi vibe t...

Upgraded to 2.0 on my iMac, but...

I've upgraded to the rather marvellous 2.0 on my iMac. I've since also bought a Macbook Air, and would like to use Scrivener on there as well. Do I have to buy another licence, or can I use the same licence number that I use on my iMac? I'm not trying to be a cheapskate. I genuinely would have no pr...

Re: Scroll bar in fullscreen mode

It's okay, I'm not too bothered about seeing the overall project target when in fullscreen mode. That's something I can look at later to get an idea of progress. With fullscreen, I tend to think to myself, "Right! 1000 words!" and hammer away until I reach the target.

Re: Scroll bar in fullscreen mode

Actually, I've found one way of keeping the word count visible, and that's just to leave the mouse pointer at the bottom of the screen. I don't mind all the other stuff being there, as the bar at the bottom doesn't distract my eye.

Re: Scroll bar in fullscreen mode

Excellent! Thanks for the help on turning the scroll bar off. I find the Projects Target box a bit obtrusive though. Shame there isn't a way to just have the word count displayed somewhere fairly small, so you can you see it at all times without having to interrupt the writing flow to hover over the...

Scroll bar in fullscreen mode

This might seem an odd thing to ask, but is it possible to turn off the scroll bar when in fullscreen mode? I find it distracting. It would also be nice if there's a way to have the word count displayed. My ideal full screen text editor is one that's Windows only... it's called Q10. It just seems to...

I got an 11 inch Air delivered today. Good God, it's marvellous. Scrivener looks and works like an absolute dream on it.

Re: I realise the answer to this will probably be a "No", but...

Personally, I find the 900 series of eee PC's keyboards a touch on the small side which is why I went for the 1000. They're a little bit pricey for what you get, as you can pay not much more and get a laptop with a better spec, although nowhere near as portable. Basically, the keyboard, nice long ba...
