Re: to pay for mac and IOS?

Hello, I've just discoverd that Scriverner is available for my Iphone! Good news! I've paid for Scrivener on Mac: do I have to pay another 20€ to get Scriverner on my Iphone? I think that is quite "rude"... Thanks! SC Hi. In my experience, this is how developers do things as a rule. There...

Re: Overwhelming praise

What I wondered at the time is whether I ought to be using the “Apps” folder, and it turned out that a dialogue in the Scrivener iOS app advised me to do that. I was kind of surprised that I had to do all of this manually. That’s odd, it shouldn’t have done that. When I set up sync for the first ti...

Re: Security and encryption

Dropbox encrypts all data, but it holds the encryption keys, so it is not zero-knowledge. it is arguably better than icloud, though, which has no encryption. and, as mentioned above, there is two factor authentication. it's also a good idea to use a lengthy, unique, randomly generated password. For...

Re: Overwhelming praise

As an academic (historian), I have to agree that this is going to mean great things for my writing and research on the iPad Pro. I cannot thank you enough for making this so well -- I didn't expect to see a 1.0 version looking so polished, either. In my case, I followed the directions kindly posted ...

Re: How to find Scrivener directly in the App Store, and for sure

I gotta say, though, Scrivener should clearly be first in the results for the search. The situation is as irritating as that little meeting of tiny minded people that's happening on the shores of one of our Great Lakes, in a little town who's name starts with a 'c', starring a guy who's head is eit...

Re: playing friendly with the ipad

Wow, it certainly has been a while! It’s always nice to hear how things went, years later. :) As an MMD user, the iOS version doesn’t supply much for that particular way of working, but given the premise of the format you really don’t need much to begin with, and since it is so easy to go back and ...

Re: playing friendly with the ipad

I'm barely recommending it. :) I'd only recommend it if you don't mind digging into things beyond their documentation. The stuff in the Scrivener manual is mostly targeted at people that already know it and are looking to integrate with Scrivener; the system itself is already documented in other pl...

Re: Scrivener for iOS - What Would You Want? [PLEASE READ FIRST]

I am thrilled to see that you are considering developing this. I am also a historian, and I love using Scrivener, except that I don't want to have to fire up the MBP to do it! 1. If you put in support for footnotes and italics in the text, that would be perfect. Nothing fancy would be fine. How you ...

Re: playing friendly with the ipad

thank you very much. i think i see now what you are saying. i have no problem using a minimal amount of mmd (no different than i would with lots of other software that relies on the same kind of markup), but i am not terribly interested in diving deeply into it. i am working on my dissertation, and ...

Re: playing friendly with the ipad

Thanks for the help. 1. Understood. 2. I am unclear about this. 3. I am unclear about this as well. You seem to be recommending MMD as a solution to the problem of having only plain text available in iPad. Yet, the MMD section of the manual is kind of confusing for me, so practically speaking, how s...
