Conflicted copies

I run Scrivener on two Windows laptops, an active copy of my current project running in Dropbox, accessible from both laptops. (I also back up a zipped version of the same project every day and whenever I switch laptops). I try to always remember to close the project in one laptop before opening it ...

Keyboard Shortcut for "Empty Trash"

I fumbled while typing today and to my great surprise a box came up to ask "Are you sure you want to empty trash?" I closed the box before I thought to take a screenshot... I have never seen that before! I didn't know there was a keyboard shortcut for 'Empty Trash'! I have searched in vain...

Project Target That Goes Over Target!

In academic and journalistic writing there is often a strict limit on words. The trouble for the writer is often not in reaching the Project target from below (i.e. writing enough!), but in reducing words to reach the target from well above (i.e. writing too much!) :oops: And yet in Scrivener, once ...

Re: PDF problems

I came looking for an answer to this problem also. I have one pdf scan which is not opening fully across-ways, and yes, it is likely to be a 'landscape' scan. Looking forward to a fix for this also.

Re: Disappearing work

Jennifer (MM), thanks for your detailed suggestions! Sorry I have not been on here since. I forgot to subscribe to the thread. I actually uninstalled Scriv, and downloaded it again, and was tremendously relieved to see the pdfs could be read. I don't know what that was about... maybe something was l...

Re: Disappearing work

I have just opened my Scriv project after a few days of not working on it, also to find that none of the pdfs in my Research folder are reading. They just show blank! :cry: As this is the project for an academic paper to be presented overseas in 3 weeks time I am quite concerned. All the texts are O...

Re: Feedback Wanted: How do you structure your Scriv projects?

I haven't done a book or essay with parts *and* chapters yet. But I am writing one with chapters and appendices (which function like chapters). Each chapter is a folder (no writing in it, that's too confusing), and within that I add texts which function as parts of the chapter. These texts may end u...

Move footnotes?

How do I move linked footnotes (e.g. move the link to another word in the text?). I have tried to follow the Mac instructions but they don't work for Windows. I need to be able to move footnotes easily, as I change my mind all the time! :?

Ran 'Project Replace' on one word, and it wiped everything!

I recently pasted my 185,000 word project into Scrivener after trialling the program successfully with a couple of essays. My very first attempt at editing has been disastrous... I ran a Project Replace to correct the spelling on one word, and it wiped every file! Every wordcount was 0. I am thankfu...

Footnotes in the Wordcount?

I have a real problem with Scrivener, in that it is counting the inline footnotes into the wordcount of the project target (in the footer). I need a text-only wordcount visible for every subdocument. This is such a problem for me, I may have to abandon Scrivener and go back to Word. Please help.

Re: Word count and inspector footnotes?

I have Scrivener for Windows and am working on an essay in the Blank template now. I have a lot of inline footnotes, and I note that the Target bar in the footer of all the subdocuments is including the footnotes in the Word Count, even though I have checked the "Exclude Footnotes" box in ...

Re: Humanities Essay Template?

I also have a query re how to change the font for all the sub-docs (texts) in the Body... I tried changing it in the Title doc as the 'About' doc said to do, but that only changed the font for the Title doc. Is there a master doc which will change the font for the whole essay?
