Re: Papers 3 Citations Not Working After Update?

No undue distress. Happy to run betas and provide feedback, knowing risks. Someone earlier in this thread asked openly about ditching Papers, and I gave my opinion on that. That’s it.

Re: Papers 3 Citations Not Working After Update?

What Silverdragon said. This is also L&L's policy. Apple continues to fix bugs right up to (and after!) the Mac OS release date. Trying to work around bugs that Apple will ultimately fix is a poor use of limited developer time. Katherine But...I have been running Catalina public betas since the...

Re: Papers 3 Citations Not Working After Update?

A-ha! Thanks, that did it, d'oh. :) Okay, so when I tried this, I got the same result as writersblock. Mojave told me that Papers wanted to control Scrivener; I clicked "Allow", but nothing happened - no citation was added, even when I tried again. Here's how to fix it: 1. Go to System Pr...

Re: iCloud Sync

Apologies if this question has been asked already in this very long thread. I am just starting to use iCloud for my general document syncing— because it turns out that Google Backup and Sync was slowing all my computer activity pretty dramatically, and I figured a built in sync solution would be si...

Re: Do you prefer Scrivener for iOS or Ulysses?

I’ve posted this before but I can’t find it offhand. Basically I use Ulysses for notes because of its sync and search (1.2 million words are no problem) and Scrivener for writing because Ulysses organizational features aren’t up to multiple rounds of revision. But i’m really getting sick of dealing...

Re: Do you prefer Scrivener for iOS or Ulysses?

Hello everyone, I have both, and am using the free trial of Ulysses to test it out. The biggest bonus of Ulysses over Scrivener I have found is the sync – I really don’t like the Dropbox syncing in the Srivener app, and it makes me feel like I can never trust it. Scrivener feels like a coffee stain...

Re: Latest Catalina beta doing something visually weird to Scrivener

BTW, heard that Catalina goes live in less than two weeks. If you are not on it, don't upgrade yet. Def not ready for prime time. If you use iCloud Drive (not for Scriv, for other apps), don't even get close to Catalina. Still such a mess. I thought the latest build fixed the issues, but it did so o...

Re: Latest Catalina beta doing something visually weird to Scrivener

Considering the severity of the problem, and that you seem to be the only one reporting it thus far, I’d eliminate whether or not it is just a mundane broken UI plist file, the likes of which can happen on any system. Run through this checklist and see if that fixes it. You might also want to reset...

Re: Latest Catalina beta doing something visually weird to Scrivener

I haven't lost any data (that I am aware of) but wasted so much time on the iCloud issues of Catalina betas that is not even funny. I have two types of issues on two different machines (MB12 and MBP13), as you can see from the screenshots. I got this empty sector on the right side and either I can't...

Latest Catalina beta doing something visually weird to Scrivener

Hard to describe, but if you have the problem you'll know what I am talking about. Both the upper and rightmost part of the Scrivener window have some blank sectors that should not be there. Is it only me or it's a known issue? I should also say that I was traveling and haven't used Scrivener much i...

Dragging emails does not generate proper links in Catalina

I know, It's Catalina. And it's not even a Scrivener issue because it happens with other apps too. So, it's a Catalina issue (at least that's how it looks to me, having seen this incorrect behavior on two MacOS machines and with other apps too). I thought it wouldn't hurt reporting anyway. The link ...

I am seeing the same thing too on an iPad 9.5" using Apple's Keyboard. Only first letter after the apostrophe is capitalized in my case. If you delete the upper case letter and retype then you get lower case

Re: Scrivener not working on macOS 10.15 Catalina beta.

Keep us updated with the use of the Betas. Does it get better? Are there any problems? While I haven't read all this thread, its title speaks loud and clear. I have been running Catalina since the release of its first public beta (we are now at release no.3) and had zero problems with Scrivener on ...

Re: nvALT replacement?

It requires rtf import/export conversion but I’ve been happily using Ulysses as a NVAlt replacement for the past three years. I’m not fond of its organizational structure for actual writing - Scrivener is much better imho - but it works great for a notes repository. I have 1.1 million words and sea...
