Re: Missing templates and compiling issue

If you have an older version the updating from within the program may no longer work. (And IIRC there was one version around 1.6 that just broke the online update). You should be able to download the installer for the latest version (or the previous one if you prefer) from this website instead. If y...

Re: Templates Folders and Scrivener Links consistently breaking

If you don't mind sending a zipped copy of the problem project to windows.support AT literatureandlatte DOT com, we can take a look at how the template folder is being saved in the .scrivx and what's going on with that, if it's not just down to the Dropbox syncing. Thanks, I've just done this. I st...

Re: Templates Folders and Scrivener Links consistently breaking

For instance, is it stored in Dropbox or GoogleDrive or any sort of sync folder that might be affecting the contents of the project? Aha! I keep all my projects in Dropbox, and I'd noticed that the template folder designation wasn't sticking. Maybe that explains it. It's a minor enough inconvenienc...

Re: Are Windows Files usable in Linux?

Just make sure you're using the right version -- 1.7.x if you're using the 1.8 Windows version, 1.9 if you've updated the Windows one. The project files aren't compatible otherwise. Apart from that wrinkle, there's no problem bouncing back and forth between the two.

Re: Help! Accidentally deleted most of project!

:( It's good that you have recent backups. By default Scrivener only makes a backup when you close the program. The autosave feature just updates the current version of the file, so unless you're using File History in Windows 8.1 or 10 and it just happened to make a copy at the right moment, I think...

Re: NaNoWriMo

I'm in -- hence my anxiety about getting a Linux version compatible with 1.9 for Windows. :) I have a setting, some characters, and about half a plot so far. As usual, there's probably far too much story to fit into 50K.

Where's the emoticon for eagerly pricked ears when I need it? That does sound hopeful.

Re: Deactivate/reactivate for new Windows PC

There's a 'Deactivate Scrivener' item about half way down the Help menu, but I think that's mostly for if you're prepping a machine for resale -- your license allows you to have it installed basically on any number of machines you own, within reason. (I think there may be a limit on the number of ac...

Re: 1.9 and Linux?

Thanks for the link. So there will be a new beta ... sometime? I think I may just stick with the old Windows version for now -- there doesn't seem to be any upside in updating, as I don't care about Mac interoperability.

Re: Kindlegen for Scrivener in Windows 10

Compile to .epub and use Calibre to convert? I have no idea if that would work if you want the .mobi to send to Amazon, but it's what I do for personal reading purposes.

1.9 and Linux?

I see that Scrivener 1.9 for Windows is out. This presents me with a dilemma -- I use a Linux machine for occasional writing away from home, and projects from 1.9 won't be compatible with older versions, which presumably includes the Linux beta. I guess there's always Wine, but it would be nice to h...

Re: Can I save my Corkboard to a Word Doc?

I'm on a Mac, so I can't check, but if you go to Compile, one of the "Format as" options is "Synopses and Titles", which you can then presumably compile to a .doc/.docx. Mr X Yes, it does work on Windows. The option seems to be called 'Synopsis Outline'. OK, that's less involved...

Re: Can I save my Corkboard to a Word Doc?

Not directly, but you can export it to a .mm (mindmap) file and open that in mindmap software like FreeMind or Freeplane to export it to a Word or OpenOffice document. I've been playing with that a bit, and it seems that the synopsis text doesn't make it to the word file with FreeMind or Freeplane. ...

Re: Nano Trial Questions

I can't speak to questions 1 and 3, but I have some experience with 2. I run Scrivener on a 10-inch (1024x600) netbook without any trouble -- not as my main writing computer, but it's great for writing sessions at the library and it fits in my handbag. It helps to hide the Inspector to make more roo...
