Thanks for the response! Actually, I realized tonight that via brain freeze I was editing documents in the wrong folder and it wasn't in the compile list. :oops:

Re: problem compiling to PDF?`

this is also occurring when I tested it to see if it would compile latest changes to a Word Doc file. No luck. I do use Dropbox for project storage (but not PDF or other compiled outputs). Thanks for any suggestions. (I've made no changes to Scrivener's configuration settings, which is why this is s...

problem compiling to PDF?`

Tonight I'm seeing a "not responding" message prior to the pop-up, "compile complete." When opening the compiled PDF, changes I've made are not appearing. Anyone else experienced this?? :cry:

If I can get 250% I'll be happy. :D

Updating to 1.9 when you use Dropbox and two computers

I successfully updated my desktop upstairs and I would like to do so on my laptop downstairs. Will the update process on the laptop recognize that the .scriv files have already been updated/upgraded on Dropbox? Anything else to worry about when using Scrivener in this fashion? Have I missed a thread...

Re: Cover Image Won't Display

I am having similar problems with a new project ready for a first draft compile to ebook. I have a folder in the project called Cover and it has one text document. The image I want to display as the cover is visible in both the folder and the document. My structure has been one folder for each draft...

Zoom settings (Windows)

Any plans to implement 250%? Going from 200 to 300 is quite a jump.
Did some searches to see if this had been discussed but didn't see a specific comment.
Thanks!

Re: a "storyboard" feature?

You can do something similar, if you don't mind being in Outliner view and going vertical instead of horizontal. Create custom meta-data fields for Hal, Clunk, Fisher, etc... Color code them if you like. You have to associate any given entry with a file or folder in the binder, but I can't see that...

In this blog post , scroll down to “A timeline”, and you’ll find an extension explanation for why devices like this don’t work well with Scrivener’s fundamental design. Excellent suggestion and an informative "read." Thank you! (And next time, I'll remember the beer!..... "Provide so...

a "storyboard" feature?

I have looked around but can't determine if Scrivener will let me do this in a straightforward fashion. I have attached the ywriter example as a reference.
Thanks!!

Re: "Active" folder/file in Binder background color

Yeah, this is just the Windows selection and inactive state. We'd like to address this in the future to provide a custom colour for the selection bar if possible, but that isn't something we've been able to do yet with the tools we've got to work with. Meanwhile, changing the binder background to s...

"Active" folder/file in Binder background color

Just want to confirm this... is there any way to alter the background color of the active file or folder in the binder so that it isn't just dull gray? or is that Windows setting? Thanks!

Re: Some keywords wishes

I am using keywords for characters and locations. I dragndrop them to the keywords panel in the inspector for each scene in which they appear. I have about 25 characters and group them in sub groups according to the sub plot. Also about 10 locations. That sounds like a very interesting use. The key...
