...and again (1068 words yesterday, not 16).

Re: Paste as separate notes

This solution does not work for me now. When I drag a text file to Scapple, it does ask "Would you like to split the imported text into multiple notes?", but puts everything in one note anyway.

Referring to a page number

I want to write something like "as seen on page X", where X is the page number where a certain text document starts. What should I use – a placeholder? But which one and where to put it?

Thanks.

Re: Getting images into Scapple

Workaround with "Preview copy" does not work for me, the only thing that works is making a screenshot with Shift+Option+Command+4 and then pasting it.

Re: How to add some text to Scrivener without Scrivener?

Great, it gives me some hope. Any ideas about cross-platform note taking service, that supports Dropbox synchronization? I was thinking about Simplenote, but unfortunately it stopped supporting Dropbox.

How to add some text to Scrivener without Scrivener?

I never liked the idea of writing on my phone, however sometimes there are some rough thoughts or even single words that are worth saving immediately. Obviously there is no Scrivener on my Android phone, but Dropbox is everywhere. I wonder if it would be possible to add some text to a Scrivener proj...

Re: Scrivener 3 won't open

Just for your information, I still cannot use the option "Reopen the projects" – Scrivener crashes every time.

How does a "normal synchronization" beetween iOS and Mac look like?

I have all sorts of unpredictable word counting behaviour, so just curious, what is supposed to be normal. Setup: - Scrivener for Mac, v. 3.1.1. Sessions are scheduled to reset automatically every midnight. - Scrivener for iPad, v. 1.1.5 So far, I've got the following scenarios: 1) In the morning I ...

Re: Bug report: Writing history miscount

It did it again: yesterday I ended the day with 1342 words, wrote it down to my writing goal on beeminder.com, closed Scrivener on iMac as usual, this morning started to write on the iPad, and when I moved back to the desktop, only 128 words from yesterday are left in the Writing History. Another th...

Re: Bug report: Writing history miscount

This is exactly what happened to me several times, and I reported it several times. Every now and then words disappear from Writing History.

Re: Scrivener 3 won't open

Well, thank you. I managed to open both projects NOT from backup, but just holding shift and opening them one after another, no crash this time.
Still, it's a weird behaviour.

Re: Scrivener 3 won't open

A crash during indexing usually indicates some form of media that is giving Scrivener difficulties---if a PDF crashes the routine that scours its text for searchable terms, for example, then you'll get stuck in a perpetual crash look trying to open the project. Removing the recently imported materi...

Scrivener 3 won't open

Until today everything was fine. Currently, when I try to open it, Scrivener starts to rebuild index and then crashes. I've already reinstalled it (didn't help), and contacted support, but the last time it took 10 days to get a reply, and this is kind of urgent. What else can I do? Many thanks in ad...

Re: iOS has no distraction-free composition mode?

This thread still contains no explanation as to why the iOS version has to be different from the Desktop version. It is just stated that it is, because it is a Rich Text app, as if that makes it self evident. Which would mean that it self evidently would be that way on the desktop app as well, sinc...
