Compiling

Can someone please help. My book is done and the compile has been perfect for the Mobi format. However between the cover picture and the first chapter I have a page called 'Contents', which I understand is the automatically generated table of contents. Now the first chapter of the book is called &qu...

Re: BETA 1.1.0 will be released in next few days

Looking good son. Can feel the familiar electric pulses in the upper spine now. Can't wait for a test drive.

Re: Scrivener keeps shutting down

This may seem like a daft question but you have installed the Microsoft Basic Runtime files? I had similiar problems until I installed these and now the program never hangs or crashes. I am running W7 Home Premium on a five year old Dell XPS420 and have Scrivener also on a XP based Dell Latitude D41...

Re: Considering buying, but lack of "Mac" features (for windows)

I agree. The price of this software is fair, considering what you'd pay for the bloat of Word and it's a lot less useful to writers. I was happy to pay what I paid for it and would have paid more without question. I always find people who moan about features not being present are generally more into...

Re: thanks for making scriv work so well on netbook!

It's funny you saying this because I have been thinking exactly what you have posted here since first trying out the beta. I have my Dell quad core PC in the sitting room with 24 inch IIyama monitor running Scrivener and then a 12 ins dell laptop which I bought on ebay a year ago for £112. Strangely...

Re: Odd Undo behavior?

To be honest this is about the only feature of the software I hate, which for a program costing about £25 isn't bad. I learnt my lesson early on and if UNDO works at all you are lucky. Now I tend to make full use of the snapshot button and just as I did in MS Word am constantly hitting the save butt...

Re: Scrivener 1.0 for Windows Now Available

Congratulations on getting version 1.0 out in time for Christmas. All right, I admit it, the doubts were creeping in. But as promised I bought it today and it feels great to have the full product in my grubby little hands at last, and at a price that is almost laughable compared to the big boys prod...

Re: Moving a project from PC to PC?

Hello, If I could just drop my 2 cents worth in, I have started using the free version of DROPBOX, recommended elsewhere on these forums. Dropbox is basically an online storage facility and the free version will let you store 2gb of files. Enough for a lifetime of writing, especially when you consid...

Re: Exporting or Printing Outliner Info

Thankyou very much for the superfast response. Will be trying the compile method now. I really don't need to be able to edit it. I just want a hard copy of Overview basically to write notes all over it by hand when I am not at the PC. Then on days off, insert all my changes back into the main text m...

Exporting or Printing Outliner Info

Hi All, Brilliant program. I am totally smitten and will definitely be buying as soon as it hits the online streets in the UK. One small problem though. I would like to be able to print my outline view only to be able to take this text with me to work where I can browse on it during downtimes or jus...
