Re: Best practices for version control (revisions)

...If you think you might want to go back to before you started a major revision, I'd suggest also using File->Back Up->Back Up To... and creating a copy of your project, .zip compressed, with "before1stRevision" as part of the backup file's name. That way, you just have to archive the ac...

Best practices for version control (revisions)

My content editor has suggested several major revisions on the book manuscript. What are the best practices when using Scrivener to track versions (revisions to a document)? I've toyed with the use of the Format > Revision Mode > First Revision & etc., which is handy for small changes. But how w...

Re: Functionality Priority Roadmap!!!

Take a look at ProWritingAid. It does everything you want with a minimum of fuss and bother. It does not work within the Scrivener shell. It is a separate app, but it reads Scrivener files directly. So the workflow looks like this: ⋅  Write something in Scrivener ⋅  Save your wor...

Re: which proofread software works with Scrivener (Mac)?

Ginger is a Windows-only application; it is unavailable for the Mac. You may also want to consider ProWritingAid. I use it and Grammarly. ProWritingAid is much easier to use with Scrivener, and the results are about the same regarding accuracy for grammar, spelling, readability. The beauty of ProWri...

Re: iCloud Sync

Stop the Dropbox crap. Start supporting iCloud sync. Scrivener probably isn't for you. Live with it. Dropbox valuation is still in flux, and I haven't kept up with the latest so my numbers may be somewhat out of date. But at the end of July it was still valued at $9.4B, significantly higher than it...

Re: eSellerate upgrade process for v2 to v3 is broken

I had the same problem earlier this morning. I contacted tech support. They advised me to give the upgrade another go, as some parts of the website had not yet come on line when they rolled out version 3.

I waited a couple of hours and the upgrade process went smoothly.

Switching keyboards

Can anyone clue me in how how to change keyboards while I'm editing in Scrivener iOS? From time to time I need to use a Greek or Hebrew keyboard in my work. When I'm using the iPad's built-in keyboard, switching from one to the next is fairly simple. But I use an external Bluetooth keyboard (BrydgeA...

Session Targets Not Updating (MacOS & iOS)

I'm frustrated by the fact that the Session Targets (word count) don't operate as I expect in either the MacOS or the iOS versions. In the iOS app, when I open a Project and begin to work, I go through the routine of "Start New Session" when working in a document. But of late, the word cou...

Re: Organizing notes across projects?

I'm a big fan of Evernote.

Like Scrivener, it's platform agnostic. It is always available, on any device. It's extremely easy to data into (and back out of).

Re: Font questions

You can change the Default font in the midst of a project, but I believe it only applies to text entered from the moment you change the setting, going forward. Changing the Default font is not retroactively applied to already entered text; SiOS does not use "styles" in the same sense that,...

Thank you for saying as much. I am often astounded at the naïveté of users who have no concept of what is required to bring an app to life.

Re: Changing DEFAULT style?

However, when I start a new document, it starts in default style, not body. Is there some way to override the default style, as I have done with the others? This is a great question. I have the same issue with SiOS. I've saved my preferred styles to a file on Dropbox and opened it with Scrivener (f...

Re: My Current Markdown Writing "Process"

Reading your post I was wondering why you aren't working with Ulysses, given your platform and stated preferences. Is the cork board that important to you? That's exactly what I was going to suggest. Ulysses would be perfect for the OP's need. He would, however, sacrifice Scrivener's platform agnos...

Re: Anyway to annotate PDFs within the IOS app

As the subject suggests once I've imported a PDF into the app is there a way for me to annotate it within Scrivener? Thanks, @Memphispee - the only thing I've found is the ability to add Notes to the document Inspector. That works pretty well, but I've not found a way to highlight text or drop comm...
