Re: Vanishing text

Hi. Thanks for your reply. My documents were synced with Dropbox on my PC. I synced Scrivener on the iPad before I left the house. I used Scrivener when I was out. I came home and synced Scrivener on my iPad to upload the edits. Then I closed Scrivener on the iPad and went back to my home Windows PC...

Vanishing text

I've recently installed Scrivener for iOS and today I decided to test it so I worked on two projects at a cafe and have just come back home and synced them to my Windows 8.1 desktop. One of the projects is fine - both the changes and the original unchanged documents in the Draft folder show up. In t...

Re: Scrivener won't install on Ubuntu 16.04

And I would also like to say thanks. Rather than coming straight here for an answer, I just wasted time searching on Google. Silly me. Applied the fix, Scrivener now works, I am very happy. Thank you Linux Scrivener peeps. :D

Re: Who's in for Nano 2015?

About Scrivener, can anyone share how they use it to outline a novel that's in parts? I have viewed some YouTube tutorials but don't really understand how to set it up and tie it in with my manuscript. The other question I have is how to import my research documents that are in Word, into the Scriv...

Re: Who's in for Nano 2015?

Woo hoo! I poked around on my hard drive and found a folder that was miscellaneous stuff I'd brought over from three computers ago, including a whole folder labeled 'story ideas never started.' :D Yay! But no prob -- I've got nine days to ponder that. Count me in! That is true and is totally the Na...

Re: Question about new format that harmonises Windows/Mac

Thanks, David. That's very helpful.

So far though when I've been trying the newly updated projects in Linux it seems to be actually working. But not something I want to rely on if there's a possibility of data loss.

*jealous* I've managed 20k a year the last couple. Better than nothing but I'd like to hit the 50k this year. I think I've reached 50k about 3 times - 6 times is really impressive!

Re: Who's in for Nano 2015?

This year my wife is pretty much demanding that I do it, in order to finish the novel I've been putzing about on since last year... Then she wants me to see about how to get it published and getting it out there... If this sounds like pussywhipping, it might be be, but I actually want to get it pub...

Re: Who's in for Nano 2015?

I already tried that one year, and the result wasn't pretty. And after about a week I couldn't even make myself open the file because it was such utter rambling crap. :( Oh yeah, I've been there. I pushed myself and wrote such drivel one year that I had problems going near the manuscript without na...

Question about new format that harmonises Windows/Mac

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this as my question straddles the Windows/Linux divide but here goes... I use Scrivener on Windows and on Linux and I've never had a problem transferring my projects between the two versions. Now I'm a bit worried that the recent Windows update might have ...

Re: Linux virgin - Setting up laptop for Scrivener/Writing only

I'm running Lubuntu on an old Acer Aspire One netbook (1.6Ghz, 1.5 gig RAM). I tried a few different distros before settling on Lubuntu. Love Lubuntu. It's lightweight, a clean desktop, easy to use, and copes with my tiny 8 gig SSD. One of the really good things about Linux is that you can easily tr...

Re: Who want a Linux release version?

I would also pay for a Linux version. At the moment I have a paid Windows version and the Linux beta and I move projects between them. I prefer writing on my little Linux netbook but I like the full sized Windows screen when it comes to organising things. So I tend to value the Linux version for the...
