Re: Search -> find document -> but where exactly is that document?

1. COMMAND OPTION R will reveal the document in the binder. 2. View > Editor Layout > Show Header View will also show name of the current document. If you hover over the name, a panel will appear showing the full path of the document. 3. If the header view above is enabled, you can right click the ...

Search -> find document -> but where exactly is that document?

When I search for something, and I find the document I'm looking for, I'm having trouble figuring out where that document is - as in, which folder or subfolder? Presumably there's an easy way to do this?

Not Saving documents ?

For some reason, when I create a new project -> transfer some documents to the new project, the new project will not save the documents properly. When I try to quit that project, it won't let me; so then I force quit eventually, and when I open it back up those documents are "recovered". A...

Re: 7 Scriveners at once....how do you manage?

Many thanks everyone; some great ideas. I'm going to explore what works best for my work style. I like the TotalSpaces2 concept. Cheers!

7 Scriveners at once....how do you manage?

Greetings, I am currently working on 7 different ongoing projects; and I have a scrivener going for each one; combining them is out of the question, as they are all expanding and I want to keep them separate. And yet, it's a mess having so many different ones, usually open at once. I assume I'm not ...

Changing font in notes/footnotes, etc.

Greetings, I cannot figure out something that I'm sure is quite simple: how on earth do you globally change the font for notes and footnotes in the inspector?

Re: Scrivener & Backing up via an NAS

Thanks everyone for the help. I'm just going to use Time Machine to Back Up my Macbook; and a few things that are truly irreplaceable I'm going to back up on various cloud services (icloud/drop box, etc.). The thing is, while I'm doing a reorg of my computer/digital stuff, I also wanted to rip all m...

Re: Scrivener & Backing up via an NAS

Can this issue be avoided by using Time Machine -> NAS (Western Digital for example)? Or would it present the same risk of overwriting with corrupted files? I recommend that all Mac users have a Time Machine volume. In my experience, it's much easier to go back to earlier versions with Time Machine...

Re: Scrivener & Backing up via an NAS

To other posters;please don't discourage the "better than nothing" solution of cloud syncing services. Not everyone is willing to go to the effort of the ideal setup. If we can get more people to occasionally plug in a usb3 hard drive for use with Time Machine + sending automatic backups ...

Re: Scrivener & Backing up via an NAS

Thanks guys. One thing I don't really understand, though, and sorry if I'm being a bit dense: if I am saving/backing up/archiving Scrivener files in, say, iCloud - or, on an external disk - and the Scrivener software doesn't reside in either backup place, are the files still the same? Are the projec...

Scrivener & Backing up via an NAS

Greetings, so I spilled a cup of coffee on my macbook Air - luckily it's working, so far haha. However, it was a bit of a wake-up call that I really need to back up my computer, and especially my Scrivener files. So, I'm looking into NAS devices to back up all of my key content; and I'm wondering ho...

Re: Using Tables

Same thing in Text Edit. It must be something wrong with my (?) OS X ??? I did find a workaround that works sometimes and sometimes not - I pull up the color palette; highlight the cells, and use the color wheel (the others won't effect any change), I pull the toggle on the right of the wheel all th...

Re: Using Tables

New Project -> Format -> Table A Table is inserted into blank page with three columns and two rows. Click on the table and those^ parameters are reflected in the little palette, including the cell border color (now black). I then add 5 columns - but they are gray. So I place the cursor in one of the...

Re: Using Tables

Thanks Amberv.

That's kind of what I thought - but neither of those work. Maybe it's a bug?
