Re: iphone wiki with search & replace?

Hi, thanks for the suggestion. I finally decided cross-platform was more important than search & replace. Onenote all the way! Works on iphone & android & mac & PC If I ever get a PC I can download an extension for Onenote called Onetastic that has Search & Replace, but at the mo...

iphone wiki with search & replace?

Hi all, because Scrivener doesn't work on the iphone, I'm wondering if I should break out my character notes etc in Scrivener into some other kind of free wiki and just use Scrivener for what it's best at: the actual novel writing. I'm writing a book and need some kind of personal wiki or notebook t...

Re: Find & Replace Style function?

Thanks. Better to know and just stop looking, and learn some patience, than to get frustrated trying to find something that isn't there.

Find & Replace Style function?

Hi all, for quick formatting of some slowly evolving character and location templates I've been working with, I'm wondering if there is a way to find & replace a style? I'd love to be able to select a specific font (Arial Bold 16) and replace with a heading style. Also, when I use 'Redefine Pres...

Re: Plot? I'm LOST in the cards?

Thanks for all the technical advice above: I'll have a play and if there's any problems get back to you all. Cheers! PS: Re backstory: Harry Potter, Wheel of Time, Game of Thrones? :wink: But yeah, I hear you on dialogue! These characters either die, and one stops writing for the day, or come alive ...

Re: Plot? I'm LOST in the cards?

What if a character or device or place changes name? Is there a way to search & replace through the Synopsis and/or Notes?

Plot? I'm LOST in the cards?

How do others organise their writing, synopsis, and notes? Can you search through EVERYTHING in a file? My problem is I'm not sure if I've got one book or 3, so I've got 3 major folders for books. Then I've got a subfolder for each chapter. Then I've got cards in each subfolder. On all these scatter...

Re: Synposis text larger?

Thanks for that, much better! But can I just ask what people use notes for? If I do a quick plot summery on my cards (synopsis), is it worth including more detailed unpacking in rough point form in Document Notes? Is that what Notes are for?

Synposis text larger?

Hi all, It seems fate is having its cruel way with me and I'm getting older. How do I make the Synopsis font larger? It's the eyes you see. :shock: Also, I accidentally clicked the auto-generate Synopsis from text button, and lost some plot detail. Am I meant to write plot summaries / chapter goals ...

Re: Doesn't copy hyperlinks from OO?

Hi, I guess I should have just said "system" security, as in they have to get into my computer in the first place to steal my (as yet) hypothetical, award winning children's book! :wink: :lol:

Thanks for your advice. Do you use any particular mac password software? Any shareware stuff?

Doesn't copy hyperlinks from OO?

Hi all, I'm thinking of using Scrivener as my passwords storing software (locked behind 128bit encryption in a Mac Image Disc... is that all I have to do to make it secure?) I need to get all my stuff in Writer (Open Office) across into Scrivener. But if I import it I lose a lot of the formatting. M...

How do I format the TEXT page defaults?

I just like to write in Arial, and would like each new text page to come up in that font. Is that possible? :D
