Registration Key/Serial Number

I don't know how to find/retrieve my Scrivener registration key/serial number. I have been a Scrivener user of the Windows version since the early beta days long before release. I have also kept everything L+L has sent me. I have followed the instructions and had eSellerate send my order history. Th...

Re: Scratchpad text has vanished.

I still think that scratchpad should somehow be included in backups, ...

Having said that, what do you think should happen? How would an automatic backup of the scratchpad work?

Re: Old hacks.

Not tempted in the slightest. When I typed on my first tty, created my first digital text file, and made corrections by simply hitting the backspace key, I was hooked. No White-Out and negligible time lost when I made a typing mistake. The electric typewriter I used in college is still in the garage...

Re: What about the iPhone?

I'm not saying to directly copy it, since that might provoke copyright infringement I'm not a lawyer, so take this comment with a truckload of salt. As I understand it, given the Windows vs. Apple suit many years ago, "look and feel" cannot be copyrighted. So as long as the graphic repres...

Re: Using Scrivener for three levels of detail.

If you are always , and I really mean ALWAYS , going to be that highly structured, then I would recommend that, indeed, you do all your outlining in the binder (where, as you noticed, you get to use Scrivenings). Then add the next level of the hierarchy and write the associated prose. Then to produc...

Amazing! Mom said "Learn something new every day" and I just learned something! I didn't know SciTE allows 'Copy as RTF'! Fantastic! Thanks, Jura!

Re: syntax highlighting

I'm a software engineer myself, Leo. I'm curious as to why you want this. You want to produce colored syntax examples in a user manual, perhaps? I honestly can't see the use case. And it is a lot of work for a very niche user base.

Re: A Scrivener only no distractions laptop

Thanks, garpu. After using it for a while, I'm not altogether happy with Puppy. It takes longer than I would like to boot, so I may give Tiny Core a try. And this thread is making me curious about having a flash-based Linux that runs Scrivener with a backing store on the cloud. Or perhaps I'll go do...

Re: A Scrivener only no distractions laptop

As to X Windows vs. frame buffer, I wonder if Scrivener will run without X. I have no idea. I think QT has a non-X widget set, but I don't know the details. Interesting to consider. I've used an FB-based Linux before (Gentoo without X, in my case). It wasn't bad. Switching terminals with the functio...

Re: A Scrivener only no distractions laptop

You might want to look at Puppy Linux: http://puppylinux.org . I've just started doing so for something unrelated to Scrivener, so I can at least say that it seems to work just fine. I installed it on a flash drive. One of Puppy's strengths is its ability to run well in constrained hardware environm...

Re: Replacements for Apple Code, Please!

Let me say what my questions were meant to imply. Jaysen began to touch on it. Scrivener is not a WYSIWYG word processor. Scrivener is not a WYSIWYG word processor. Say it with me three times, "Scrivener is not a WYSIWYG word processor." It doesn't matter how much I'm willing to pay for in...

Re: Replacements for Apple Code, Please!

Interesting, and thought provoking for this (Windows) user. It brings up these rather academic questions in my mind: How much more should users be willing to pay for the next major release if L&L writes their own list management software? How much more should users be willing to pay for the next...

Re: Contents list in Kindle file

Hmmm... If I were going to do this, I would make the titles into folders and name them with the name I wanted which, in your case, is "Fire", "Water", etc. Then I would check the Title checkbox on the compile of these folders and set Title Settings with the Chapter prefix and suf...

Re: Font display problems in Windows

Two questions:

    What are the names of the fonts that display poorly?
    How was the text entered? Was it typed by hand? Was it imported?
