Re: 1st october:License engine broken again

Update from my previous post: There was another Windows update on October 4, so after I shut down the computer and then restarted it, I launched Scrivener again. It still said I was in Trial mode, so I clicked the button for entering a new license key and entered the license code I've been using all...

Re: 1st october:License engine broken again

I looked and my version is 1.9.14.0, but I think you had written 1.9.0.14, right? So, just to be sure, I downloaded the version for Windows directly from the website. When I look at Properties, it says 1.9.14.0, which is what I have. So, I have the correct version. However, when I tried to open Scri...

Re: Changing default template path

I think I found my answer here: http://scrivener.tenderapp.com/help/kb/windows/installing-on-additional-computers On my desktop (home) computer, the templates are here: C:\Users\ <username> \AppData\Local\Scrivener\Scrivener\ProjectTemplates So, before I go on a trip, I just need to copy that folder...

Re: Changing default template path

I've been using Scrivener for a couple of years, but never thought about where templates are stored until today. I prefer to do my writing on my desktop (tower) computer because I have two large monitors and a nice, comfy chair. (Go ahead, say it. You know you want to: "Oh, no, not the comfy ch...

Thank you! At least I know I didn't miss something obvious. I'm looking forward to L & L's response.

Title page top table border

Hi, I'm using Scrivener 1.9.7.0 for Windows. I've made a custom template for non-fiction and I nearly have everything set up the way I want it except for one thing: The top left of the title page. When I compile the article as .docx, the info at the top left is in a table, which is fine, but it has ...

Re: I literally WEPT when I discovered this feature was missing

Glad to hear it's one of the Mac features that will eventually be added to Windows! In my current book project, I have some scenes that are happening concurrent with others, and some plot points that rely on two different parties doing two different things and not realizing they will end up in the s...

Re: 1.0.3 Not all meta data is compiling

I still see this in 1.25.

When compiling, I check both metadata and synopsis, but when I compile, it's only printing the last keyword in the list.

Do you know if this is addressed in the 1.5 Beta? I'm just getting back into my novel and wasn't going to try a Beta, but if the fix is in there, I will.

Re: Ok, I give up, what do Keywords actually do?

After reading p. 188, under Formatting, I realized that I needed to check (tick) the boxes for synopsis and metadata.

I checked both metadata and synopsis, but when I compile, it's only printing the last keyword in the list.

Re: Ok, I give up, what do Keywords actually do?

Grrr. I'm going to answer my own question -- in a way. On p. 74 of the manual, it says, "When exporting or printing, keywords will be displayed on a single line, separated by commas." So, it *is* possible, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to get them to show up when I compile and pr...

Re: Ok, I give up, what do Keywords actually do?

I'm coming back to an old WIP after a long absence and I'm having a hard time remembering what's happening. I compiled a synopsis, which helps a bit, but it would really help if I could include the keywords as they occur. That is, in addition to my short synopsis for each scene, which I wrote at a h...

Re: Template Question

You're right -- I'm working on a novel I was working on during the Beta testing, so it would have been an old template.

And, yes, it would be more confusing to mention it if it no longer happens. Request withdrawn :)

Re: Ok, I give up, what do Keywords actually do?

Aha! It did, and now I see what I was doing wrong. When I double-clicked it before, my mouse pointer was touching the colored square. When I double-clicked, the color-choosing window opened! After seeing your message, I realized I must have been doing something wrong, so I moved my mouse pointer to ...

Re: Ok, I give up, what do Keywords actually do?

I've been using keywords to keep track of quite a few things (POV, timeline, notes to myself).

Having just read the suggestion to not use spaces, I checked and saw that I did. :(

Is there a way to edit keywords? I can't figure it out. I'm using v1.2.5.
