Re: Inkbok Subscription Service

Yep... I made a few (very few) bucks from them... wish they had made it. I liked their site and their plan.

Re: Online backups: Blackblaze, Crashplan, Carbonite??

Another Crashplan user here... one thing that might be handy is that you can use Crashplan for free to back up to another machine (a machine you have somewhere else, or a friend or family member). Or you can pay to back up to their data center. I use their data center, but also use the "free&qu...

Re: Inkbok Subscription Service

This one seems promising to me... guess we'll see :-)

I put my book up there a while back... waiting on them to launch.

Sure agree with this, although I had some problems with the "highlight" color in the Binder... if you have a dark background in the Binder, I couldn't figure out a way to set the "selected" color to be light.

Re: Undo command unavailable for changes to binder

I understand the technical limitations, but have to put in my "sure wish we could do something about it" request... I've botched up a book that I had published with a glitchy mouse/drag-drop and suddenly moving one item in the binder had me mistakenly moving a chunk of my book around. When...

Re: Sold a book

And now I've sold a couple (via CreateSpace) of paperbacks. I will comment that I was able to compile these successfully with the Mac version of Scrivener. It did a great job with the left/right gutters, headers, all that. The Windows/Linux version doesn't seem to have all of this yet (or at least t...

Re: 1.82GB project opens but does not show, pls help.

Assuming you're on a Mac, I would try moving your preferences folder "elsewhere" to save a copy and then restart Scrivener "clean". Hold down "Option" and in the Finder open the "Go" menu and you should see "Library" - from there, got to Application ...

Re: Duplicate separator at page breaks

OK, finally found it... My separator is really "# # # <NEWLINE>" (that should be an option somehow, but regardless :-))... There is, in the Compile->Layout section, a "Empty Lines Across Page Breaks" selection. The empty line of my separator seems to count. Turn that off and we'r...

Duplicate separator at page breaks

OK, I have a weird one that I can't find... I have a custom separator (# # #) defined between text documents. Works fine. EXCEPT - if the break happens to fall in conjunction with a page break. In that case, it shows: # # # * * * I don't know where that "* * *" is coming from. Help? Thanks...

Re: Sold a book

Hey, and now I'm an International author too!!!

At this growth rate, in a month or so, I can retire (exponential growth works that way :-)).

Seriously, thanks Vic!

Sold a book

http://www.emptyworlds.com/sites/emptyworlds.com/files/open_gate_website_use_minature_0.jpg Well, I guess I am now a published author (self-published, anyhow). And I've actually sold a book... just one so far, but small steps, don't you know :-) I have to thank the Scrivener folks so much for a gre...

Re: Compiling with a cover?

Thanks for the instructions... for some reason the image that I had been using in my compile, although visible on the screen, wouldn't appear in the compile box any longer. The only thing I know of that I did was accidentally duplicate it and then remove one of the duplicates. Apparently I removed t...
