Search for character names and places

I've been using Scrivener since 07 and I can't believe I've never asked or suggested this. I try to use custom metadata to keep track of my characters as they pop up through the MS. But often I miss some. Before I had this many books, I used to take the time to have my computer read my book to me an...

Re: Crashing after installing OS and Scriv

Thanks, Keith. In ten years I'd never had that happen, and I'm afraid I panicked, :roll: I trashed the DMG file and the scrivener file, restarted and reinstalled the file I downloaded yesterday. Same problem. Then I trashed it and redownloaded it and this time it worked. Sorry for the inconvenience....

Crashing after installing OS and Scriv

Hi, I just got my macbook pro back from Apple. I've reinstalled OS and updated, Scrivener and updated and everytime I do anything, open a file from dropbox, try to open preferences, click a file in the binder, it crashes. Help. I'm going to have to go back to IOS to finish my manuscript. THanks Martie

exporting and opening formatting presets

Hi, I saw in the tutorial where I could export my presets then use Open in...scrivener to open them in my IOS vs of Scrivener. I'm having trouble making this work. I have exported it from my current file into dropbox. I've tried putting just in dropbox and also in APPS/Scrivener. But when I open dro...

Re: Binder smaller size

Appreciate the feedback and explanation, Amber. I can see the challenges you mention and also why it works with the large Ipad - and I'd be happy with any reduction in width however it's accomplished. I also know you guys will do whatever you can to make improvements so I'll just keep enjoying the n...

Re: Some bluetooth keyboards allow for shortcuts in scivener, some do not

I ended up with a Logitech K380 with 3 bluetooth connections for my iMac, Air and iPad. After returning the Zagg slim book and the apple smart keyboard, this little inexpensive 10 inch is PERFECT. In case anyone's looking for a good fit. :P

Binder smaller size

I'm absolutely loving my IOS version and have found it so useful with my new IpadPro 9.7. Syncing is perfect. THE ONLY THING i kinda dislike is the fact that I can't skinny-up the width of my binder ( i looked for this option and read the tutorial but didn't see it) and reduce the size of the fonts ...

Keyboard for IOS version

I'm curious if I will be limited if I purchase the Apple keyboard vs an after market like the Zagg. You've got an extensive list of shortcuts. Will the shortcuts for bold italic underline and strikethrough also work? I've seen where this is not supported on the Apple keyboard and I definitely want t...

Re: Add Snapshot hangs Scrivener

An update on my previous post. I was finally able to do a clean install of Lion on my Air instead of the upgrade and now Scrivener and snapshots work perfectly. I suspected it wasn't Scrivener's fault all along.

Re: Scapple Beta - New Users Please Read

Double YYaaYY! Keith.
I can't tell you how long I've been looking for a BS tool (short for you know what) that isn't connected to one central item and freeform to boot. This is awesome. Can I pay now? Just kidding (not).

You rock.

Re: Add Snapshot hangs Scrivener

Amber, remove the missing Scrivener folder from the problem. Sorry, I looked in the wrong library file. Forgot Lion's was hidden. I can't find a snapshot I've taken since upgrading the MacAir to Lion about six months ago just before my job got crazy. (MacbookPro came preinstalled with Lion) I can op...

Re: Add Snapshot hangs Scrivener

No, I bought it from the Scrivener site via Esellerate. I've been running Scriv since 2007. Haven't had any problems prior to this. Given workshops using the snapshots too - last year before 2.3.1. I'll go back in tomorrow and see when I last took snapshot with Scriv on the Air. See if it was before...
