Default Document Settings Overriding Styles

I have been enjoying making good use of Scrivener. There is much that I have enjoyed, and much that I have not yet explored however, there is something that continues to happen that is starting to really get on my nerves. I am not sure where to look to fix the issue - assuming it is fixable and is o...

Thanks, I did not know this. If a moderator wants to move this post to that more appropriate section, it is allright by me.

Linking Information

I did not see a Forum for sharing information that I find useful to my writing process with Scrivener or I would have shared this, there. I recently discovered a new app called Hook. What Hook does, is allow any file or document I am working on, to create a non destructive link to that document or f...

Re: Gratitude and a small suggestion

I am thrilled at the way I can option select Binder text to review the flow of my ideas, see if I am repeating myself, etc. I'm not sure what this means. Option > Select seems to just follow what the cursor drags across, meaning it won't allow selecting a paragraph by clicking on it. Maybe you are ...

Stop Project Template Window from Launching

I am getting the hang of using Scrivener now. More and more I am assigning Scrivener documents to project specific tasks such as working on a certain draft, or working on a different draft. I am even testing keeping my stop notes and links to apps that I am using for completing difficult long term t...

Re: Gratitude and a small suggestion

When you say you wish you could customize color in the Binder for each project, do you mean only background color? That does persist from Project to Project. However, Yes, just a simple choice of Binder background color is all I am referencing here. Changing the Binder background color in Scrivener...

Gratitude and a small suggestion

I want to express my gratitude for Scrivener. It took me quite a while to embrace Scrivener. Not because of Scrivener but because of my challenges with organizational structure. I am still not 100% using all of Scriveners tools. I will get there (at my own pace) but for now, I am thrilled at the way...

Re: A Little Laggy

As I tend to save often as part of my writing habit - and only when I am not writing, I will probably extend this to 30 minutes or more. No, don’t. If you do that it means that Scrivener will inly save when you have been inactive for 30 minutes! The time tells Scrivener how long inactivity from it ...

Re: A Little Laggy

What is your autosave interval? You can find it in the Scrivener -> Preferences -> General -> Saving pane. The default interval is very short, and can cause exactly the behavior you're seeing: Scrivener thinks you've paused and tries to save. Katherine Yes, I would say so, It is set to auto save af...

Re: A Little Laggy

Do you have very many or very few subdocuments in the binder? I have more than a few subfolders now - actually, I meant dragging files onto other files to create a folder like structure. I have been assembling this document using separate sections and then placing the sections according to an outli...

A Little Laggy

I am now fully engaged with Scrivener on a writing project. Checking the quick search bar, I am at approx. 40,000 words. I have six or so graphics placed here or there to help me clarify my points. I mention all this in case it helps with understanding the problem. Scrivener has become a little lagg...

Re: How To Get An Outline in Scrivener into Scapple - And Back.

Actually, it's pretty easy to go from Scapple to Scrivener—there's a couple of different ways to get that done. But the other direction—no. My preferred tools for this sort of thing are a white board and iThoughts. And I know of nothing that does a round trip the way I'd like it done. Curio is doin...

Re: How To Get An Outline in Scrivener into Scapple - And Back.

I had assumed that Scapple was created as an adjunct app that would enhance my Scrivener writing experience. Surely there is some easier way to link and sync Scrivener with Scapple? Scapple is free form , like a blackboard, and it has no import apart from drag and drop of text. It’s not an adjunct ...

Re: How To Get An Outline in Scrivener into Scapple - And Back.

I don't think it CAN be done! I'm glad Scapple only cost $15 because I'm having trouble finding a place for it in my workflow. The free (open source) version of xMind and the Open Source product FreePlane are much more useful to me. The problem with Scapple is that it is neither fish nor fowl. It a...

How To Get An Outline in Scrivener into Scapple - And Back.

Can anyone please tell me how to get an outline in Scrivener into Scapple? And conversely, how to get a Scapple outline into Scrivener? I have created an outline of sorts with all my section titles from my Scrivener document. Some are single tabbed to show they are a subset of what is above them. Wh...
