Re: Save using iCloud when not using Scrivener iOS app?

Definitely have this option turned off as I don‘t want to use it in any case. Thanks for the additional hint though, appreciated!

Save using iCloud when not using Scrivener iOS app?

Hello, just a short question: Is it safe to use iCloud as save destination without the known and feared problems if I only use this to have access to my Scrivener projects on two Macs? Or is this not recommended at all, in any case? I'm not 100% sure if this is a specific problem when also using Scr...

Re: better/easier/more comfortable external folder synchronizations

Thanks a lot, Katherine, for the reply and explaination, appreciated. Sad to hear that the suggestion number 1 isn't planned as I would have expected especially people with a lot of projects would benefit of this, but I may be wrong. Although I don't really understand the difference when it comes to...

better/easier/more comfortable external folder synchronizations

I’d like to suggest an (in my eyes) nice update for a future update when it comes to external folder synchronization: I think a neat solution would be that – similar as to the backup folder – you only need to set a default folder synchronization path once in the global settings (at least if you like...

Re: difference between the two replacement setting windows

Thanks a lot for the thoroughly explanation, AmberV – really appreciated! I only have three replacement rules I universally use for every writing job – non-breaking space before "..." and "-" and correcting two space characters to one (which also could be fixed directly in the sc...

Re: difference between the two replacement setting windows

Thanks a lot for the graphics and sorry for being to dumb ... :) This exchange is so specific and technical, I'm afraid, that it gets lost in translation – which is my bad as I am not a native English speaker. I simply have my problems to understand that either of those rule sets is globally as - in...

Re: difference between the two replacement setting windows

Yeah, the two „Meine Formate" ("My Formats") compile profiles below are the global ones I can choose for other projects, too – I'm still not sure if these are the explaination, but you may very well be correct! Still failing to understand what is what though: When I opened other proje...

Re: difference between the two replacement setting windows

Thanks a lot for your answer, very appreciated. I am still a bit lost, as my replacement settings were - as far as I can see - only created within a special project, with a compile setting bound to this special one, and even those shown on the "main" compile window ("1.png" - unf...

Re: several sketches in one project - every sketch should automatically have its title included as headline when exporti

Hi JoRo, thanks a lot – the discrete numbering for every single document of a project, compiled all together as a "collection" in one bigger PDF/DOC, would have been helpful (in my case) for comedy sketch writing, when you compile a bigger document with ten sketches or so, but every discre...

difference between the two replacement setting windows

Just a very short question: What exactly is the difference between the replacement settings window in the main compile window ("1.png") and the dedicated sub point ("2.png")? As far as I remember I only set up all replacements for my projects in the "real" sub menu, but...

Thanks so much to you, too, Keith – this is really helpful, By now, Scrivener gets so helpful for me in a dimension I never expected it to be!

Re: several sketches in one project - every sketch should automatically have its title included as headline when exporti

Thanks a lot, both of you, for your hints – I'll try everything you've suggested out! Man, I love Scrivener so much … All those years, I've used it only its basic features (which already made things a lot comfortable for my writing), but now, as I am more and more discovering everything Scrivener is...

several sketches in one project - every sketch should automatically have its title included as headline when exporting

Hi everybody, as I am digging deeper and deeper into the possibilities of Scrivener, I am now facing a problem I can't find a solution for. Maybe somebody here can help me – I am trying to use Scrivener to write several comedy sketches (skits?) in one project and have them all titled correctly when ...

Re: mark exceptions for first line insert?

Thanks a lot to both of you – so appreciated! Both solutions would work I guess – didn't really think of simply choosing "don't change anything" in the export settings and keep every insert like set up in the editor. Checking "Preserve formatting" at the specific lines seems even...
