Re: Simplenote Syncing Gone in Version 3.0?

Do I understand correctly that after paying the $25 upgrade to Scrivener 3, I now have to pay full price to get the same version on my IPad? No, but if you currently use Scrivener 2 synced Simplenote on the iPad and you upgrade to Scrivener 3, you won't be able to sync with Simplenote anymore, so y...

Re: Simplenote Syncing Gone in Version 3.0?

.If you prefer, you can use the Sync with External Folder feature to share files with any iOS application you like. For me the wonderful thing about Simplenote was a distraction free writing app and syncing would automatically overwrite the scenes on my macbook. I don't know any other iOS apllicati...

Re: Simplenote Syncing Gone in Version 3.0?

I used SimpleNote all the time, which is why I'm not hesitant to 'upgrade' to Scrivener 3. Sure, I get a discount to get Scrivener 3 at 25$, but I also have to change from using SimpleNote to buying IOS Scrivener for 20$. Why is there a bundle for buying Scrivener for Windows and Mac, but not for Sc...

Re: Scrivener Freezing then Quitting?

Okay, I downloaded the new version and the issues have vanished, so that's all good now.

Thanks for your help!

Re: Scrivener Freezing then Quitting?

Scrivener won't start up anymore--the top menu appears, but when the cursor clicks on 'About Scrivener' the pop-up won't appear, nor will the files open. Should I download the new version from the website? Edit: the pop-up appears and shows that I have installed 2.6, but when I open my file from rec...

Re: Scrivener Freezing then Quitting?

I've checked for updates and it's now downloading 2.6.

I noticed that I hadn't flagged 'install updates automatically', but I flagged that now.

Re: Scrivener Freezing then Quitting?

Hi Amber,

I checked: I have Scrivener 2.3, so I might need to upgrade. Where can I find the upgrades? I bought Scrivener through Literature and Latte.

Re: Scrivener Freezing then Quitting?

I've upgraded to OS Yosemite on the MacBook. I can't recall any other upgrades that might interfere, and I've run bug sweeps through MacKeeper.

I sent the crash report through email to support.

Scrivener Freezing then Quitting?

I'm editing a document in Scrivener on my Macbook. I'll be erasing a word and typing in another word and the cursor freezes in place (with the colourful wheel turning in place of the cursor to show that it's 'thinking/processing'), then it quits. I've restarted my Macbook and opened and closed Scriv...

Re: Formatting preset

You’ll probably do better with the Documents/Convert/Convert Formatting to Default Text Style menu command, which of course uses your formatting preferences, and also has a number of options for selecting how much formatting that applies to the documents you have selected. Wouldn't that also wipe a...

Re: Formatting preset

I have a problem with turning out Word.doc compilations of my project, which are full of hidden formatting. Now I don't know how much formatting has been transferred into the original Scrivener document (the novel itself was written on many different machines), but I'm looking for a way to strip hid...

Re: Mobi compile fail

AmberV checked out my project and came upon an error that is too simple to be noticed by us mere mortals - turns out that the # mark in Amsterdam Assassin Series #1 was causing the trouble. By removing the # mark from the title, the file was converted to mobi without a problem.

Kudos to AmberV

Re: Mobi compile fail

To AmsterdamAssassin, it shows the problem being in 'body5.xhtml'. Since numbering starts at 0, that means the sixth major section (chapter, whatever). I checked, but the hyperlinks are in other sections and they don't cause problems in .epub. With the previous Kindlegen, I stuffed my contact URL h...

Re: Mobi compile fail

I have the same issue, after I put some links to MailChimp's 'sign up to mailing list' link in my Scrivener project. I thought this was the issue, so I tried a project without this link, and it converted to .mobi. So I took a work in progress, removed the mailchimp link, but again I got the same mes...
