Re: Scrivener keeps trying to convert my PDFs int RTF for some reason?

OK, that sample one imported without difficulty. :) So it must be that it can't handle PDFs that have taken advantage of the newer features that let you add annotation and mark-up to the text? If so, is there a way I can have it just store a link, and open it using an external application, rather th...

Re: Scrivener keeps trying to convert my PDFs int RTF for some reason?

DavidR -- Nope, I don't do drag-and-drop uploads with anything, because it's too easy to slip and drop something in the wrong place :). I'm too much of a klutz to like that UI feature 8) I'm going to the folder, then right-clicking on it in the binder, and choosing "Add --> Files..." It gi...

[Solved] Scrivener keeps trying to convert my PDFs int RTF for some reason?

Hi! I'm having a really hard time importing PDFs into the Research folder. For some reason, the default seems to be to convert PDFs into RTF -- but since these are academic journal articles heavily noted and marked up in Okular, converting to RTF results in gobbltygook. But I've been unable to find ...

Bought it years ago... Do I have to re-purchase?

Hi! I purchased Scrivener for Windows years ago. Haven't used it in a long time, partly because I've been using Linux. However, I'd like to try running Scrivener under Wine (program that allows you to run Windows software on Linux). However, I can't find an activation code stored anywhere, or anythi...

I seem to have crashed it...

...which surprises me, since it's been very stable for me throughout the beta. I wasn't doing anything fancy. * I was editing a document. * I Updated the label on the document (via the right-hand sidebar pulldown) * I updated the status on the document (also via the right-hand sidebar) * I opened th...

Hiding char count (while still showing word count)?

Hey, sorry if this has been covered, I was unable to find it in a search. Is there a way to turn off the character count that shows up on the bottom toolbar, while still showing the word count? I find the character count really distracting; my brain keeps wanting to interpret as word count, think &q...

Re: NaNo Scrivener code question

Oh, shoot, it didn't even occur to me the code would vanish :( Now the entire site has changed, and the page it was on is gone, too. Any hope for those of us who didn't expect it to get pulled out from underneath us (and thus don't have the OLD code anymore either)? I finished last year, and I'd bee...

Dragging and dropping binder files

Is it just me, or does 035 make it a lot more difficult to drag and drop things into folders in the binder? I used to be able to drag and drop things easily without even thinking about it; but now, I can't figure out how to put something into a folder that doesn't already have something in it yet. D...

Re: Do you need source your own blogpost in a novel?

I've been trying to think of reasons that you'd feel this necessary. There are cases where "self-plagiarism" becomes an issue. One could run into difficulties for failing to cite their own previously published work when submitting to peer-reviewed academic publications, for example. For t...

Re: Daily Word Count History FEATURE REQUEST

Mr B, I think he's talking about dumping his grubby old raincoat. :? Fluff Arf. But I meant, why would anyone want a -- probably shameful and humiliating -- record of one's daily output? (For example, today's, for me, so far, is -2,746ww. That's okay; means I took some crap out. But yesterday's 44 ...
