Liquid Text and Scrivener workflow

Hi, I'm curious if anyone has worked out a workflow or even just a usage scenario between Liquid Text and Scrivener? Liquid Text seems fantastic if you're writing a dissertation, article (especially a review article) or book. (And you also have a big iPad Pro and Apple pencil). However, it's not for...

Re: delete portions of the trash folder

So I might just remove the first paragraph since that’s all rather confusing anyway and leave the “delete selected text in the editor” as an undocumented side-effect. I’m sure most people just intuitively overtype or press Delete on the keyboard rather than look for menu commands to remove selected...

Re: delete portions of the trash folder

Thank you for your help, AmberV. Let me deal with the flash first. I had no idea there was such an option, but I did find it in the Accessibility/Audio page. So deselection solved that issue. This is page 690: When binder items located within the Trash folder are selected, the Delete function will p...

delete portions of the trash folder

P. 690 of the Scrivener 3 User Manual indicates that you can select and delete a portion of the Trash folder. However, when I attempt to do this, the screen flashes, and nothing is deleted. Is there a way to partially purge the Trash folder, and if so, directions would be greatly appreciated. On the...

Re: Document headings do not appear in Scrivenings mode – is this changable?

The four videos on compiling on https://www.literatureandlatte.com/learn-and-support are quite helpful and handy. They’re worth more than 1,000 words each.

HTH.


Many thanks, HTH, for your clear explanation and the heads-up about the shortcut. It worked perfectly!

Date format for binder

Is it possible to change the S3 Date Format in the Binder? Currently I use "⌥⇧⌘D" which gives me the Mac's long form (date + time). I'd like it to have a short form "Sat Mar 24 2018" for a running work journal. My guess is that the binder date comes from the Mac rather than S3. H...

Re: file naming conventions

I would guess it doesn’t really matter if the space is here or there in the name. You can use spaces in the middle of the file name, so why not the beginning? To the system it is just another character, like “d” is. As for whether it is safe throughout all of the various systems that might encounte...

Re: file naming conventions

I don't use leading spaces to control sorting of items in the Finder . . . I've seen all sorts of wonderful systems in blog posts and articles over the years, and I've tried to implement many of them, but I found that none of them really worked that well because they hadn't been set up by me . . If...

file naming conventions

My apologies if this is a dumb question. Do any of you have experience using leading white spaces in the names of your top level folders? I've used leading white spaces for some of my Mac and synced Dropbox folders, including Scrivener folders over the years, and disaster has never followed. However...

Re: Scrivener as a project tool for non-writing projects: version 2 is good enough, version 3 is overkill

I’ve been working on a bit of a project template designed as both (a) a starting point for those wanting to create a kind of a “commonplace book” project and (b) as part of its stock setup, a tutorial on how to take advantage of various Scrivener features toward that goal. So the tutorial itself wi...

Re: Inspector panel control strip

Thank you, Jerome. Indeed that works--101 results for "inspector tabs!" I had to laugh.

Maybe the name of that little bit of real estate should be changed to its nickname in the next revision of the manual. In addition to an option to placing the inspector tab in the middle.

Inspector panel control strip

Hi, In Scrivener 2.7 the "Inspector panel control strip" was moved to the top of the inspector. I'm a bit puzzled by this move because it's remote from the middle or end of the document where typewriter scrolling or coming to the end of the visible page would seem to recommend that the mid...

Re: Insert document at the top of its folder?

Thanks, AmberV--I'm so glad to have this question answered. It's a minor itch that's nagged me for years.

I'm already doing what you describe, except for the Ctrl-Cmd-UpArrow shortcut. I'll add that to the process.

Insert document at the top of its folder?

Hi, I'm think there's an answer to this, but I haven't been able to track it down. Imagine I have a folder, and I want to add a document at the top of the folder. However, if I click on the folder, and use any of the myriad ways to add a document, Scriv adds the document outside the folder at the sa...
