Re: Scrivener won't start since the update

I just uploaded the update today. I was able to open Scrivener once, but after doing some writing, I could not export nor backup my work. Every time I tried I would get a long, narrow pop-up window repeating the same error message, something about errors. I can't be more specific because I closed S...

I'm getting a different set of issues with this update... Opened the program and it automatically told me to update, so I did. Now when I click on my project file, I get an error that says, "The file is not a Scrivener project file. Please, select a valid Scrivener project file." I've bee...

Re: 1.03 Can't import web page

Hi StaceyUK.

Before doing File --> Import --> Web Page, select the "Research" folder in the Binder. Once "Research" is selected, and highlighted, you should get a dialog box after File --> Import --> Web Page.

Re: Misspelled Dictionary Word English (United States)

While I regret that you are experiencing the trouble I am, on some level it is nice to know that I am not alone (meaning, it's not just me or my machine). I understand exactly what you mean. :) Using a space before, and after, a word when I enter it on the substitution list limits the changes to th...

Re: Misspelled Dictionary Word English (United States)

Hey again, this is probably just a matter of semantics but I'm only asking again to be sure. Did you mean "personal word list" or "substitution" list? If I'm not mistaken, they serve different functions is why I'm wanting to be clear. If I understand things correctly, the person...

Re: Misspelled Dictionary Word English (United States)

Hi Syclone. Soverywrite, I'm not sure what text expanders are either but I think by substitutions MM is referring to the "Enable additional substitutions" check box at the bottom left of your screen shot (I had to scroll the picture down to see it). If those words you are seeing pop up som...

Re: Misspelled Dictionary Word English (United States)

Hi Mimetic Mouton. Certainly with the "Correct spelling errors" turned off, Scrivener wouldn't be adjusting your words. But, that is exactly what it is doing. I just checked my settings again. "Check spelling as you type" and "Check spelling errors as you type" are both...

Misspelled Dictionary Word English (United States)

I'm using Scrivener for Windows, version 1.0.3 The word "not" is misspelled in the English (United States) dictionary. Auto-correct changes "not" to "nto." I can undo the change by hitting CTRL + z, but that interrupts the flow of my writing. Not huge, but annoying. Is ...

Re: Ok, I give up, what do Keywords actually do?

Pigfender, thank you for posting that information. I've been using Keywords, but now I know that I have not been utilizing them to their full potential.

Again, thanks for sharing how you use Keywords!

Re: Research Folder - Questions

I just tried using the NaNoWriMo Scrivener trial, version 0.0.46. I'm using Firefox. I was able to drag and drop an image from a web page into the Research file. No problems, the image is now in my Research folder. I did a drag and drop for a web page, but very little came through. Just unformatted ...

When Switching From the NaNo to the Regular Version

Hello. I've been using the NaNoWriMo version of Scrivener, and I love the program. I am looking forward to December 5th to purchase the regular Windows version of Scrivener. I want to be certain that I don't lose any of my writing, or research, when I make the switch. I've been reading the Scrivener...
