Dropbox - unofficial public service announcement!

I collect jokes that I find amusing and keep them in a project named 'Funny' which I sync between iMac and iphone. Once a week, for about an hour of an evening almost every week I go to the pub with friends and, in between conversations, test whether they share my humour by getting out my phone and ...

Sync via Dropbox - selected projects

Via Dropbox, I sync 9 projects between my iMac and iphone. This morning it took about 20 minutes, using 4G (I have an unlimited data plan), to complete a sync of approximately 4500 items. I understand that the sync has to check each project for any changes before downloading . As I had only changed ...

Re: Sync to Dropbox issue

I don't know why I'm using it either! I have got into a muddle. As I understand, all I need do is keep/save the project file in Dropbox>Apps>Scrivener - and back-up to another folder on my iMac. I think where I've gone wrong is in the sync with external folder settings. I have selected 'check extern...

Sync to Dropbox issue

A recent glitch in my iMac has caused me to re-customise most of my apps. As I understand, to sync a project to Dropbox, all that's needed is to choose the Scrivener folder in the parent Apps folder in Dropbox - which is what I've been using successfully before the glitch. Now when I choose that Scr...

Project Replace: any suggestions for how to clean up a mess ?

Frequently I ignore my advice to myself to not persevere when over-tired. Which is why I now find myself with a mess. When I reformat text to my specification that I've copied and pasted into a file it gets bunched up into a single paragraph. Having asked on this forum how to insert a line break aft...

Re: Two 'Research' folders

Yes, I've tried deleting the other but to no avail

Having originated from two different projects surely they would both have been 'official'?

Two 'Research' folders

Sort keywords

Using the keyword window, when adding a keyword as a sibling and add a child keyword, is it possible to limit the sort to the child keywords inside a sibling keyword? And if so then how please? Or is the sort on the entire list regardless?

Sort on a custom metadata field

I have a date field. It would be very useful to be able to sort dates.
Currently the only way I can think of to sort entries by date is cumbersome. Prefix each entry with the date and sort on title.

Re: Undo?

Another problem I'm having is when I import from MS Word or Pages, I can not change the formatting within. Like, there is paragraph I imported as double spaced. I want to make it single spaced now. Nope, can't be done. What am I missing, please, if you know? When importing or copy/paste text from e...

Text tidy line break

Is there a way for S to insert a line break after each full stop?

Only when cooy/paste text that comprising a massive block of paragraphs etc that needs to be split into bite size chunks it is a fiddle to read through and manually add line breaks at the end of each sentence.

Re: Kerning in PDF

I use Mellel for writing lengthy reports, with Scrivener as as complementary database for research. Mellel has a feature in its find and replace whereby you can find one or more whitespaces and replace them with blank. Perhaps equally tedious to read through text copied and pasted from a pdf to manu...
