Re: Find & Replace in Corkboard View

You need to be doing a Project Find and Replace (not at the Mac at the moment so can’t remember the exact title, but it’s on the Edit > Find menu). This feature allows you to specify which part of the text you want to operate on - you want to choose the Synopsis option (the text on index cards is j...

Find & Replace in Corkboard View

I've just completed a first draft but I'm now reconsidering the name of my lead character. It's not the first time and I know I can use Find & Replace in scrivenings mode to change it across the whole manuscript. The issue is that I have also used the character's name in the corkboard (66 of the...

Re: Should I upgrade to MacOS Catalina?

I bought my current iMac new last year and immediately updated it to Catalina. Can't say I've had any issues.

Re: Word Count and Session Target at 0

Have you compiled the project at some point having selected specific documents? This happened to me recently and it turned out that I was working on documents that weren't in the compile settings.

I'm using a mac but I'm guessing it should be the same for windows.

Re: Auto Correction

Seems rather odd that yours isn't working then. I was hoping that there was just a box that had been unchecked.

Hopefully someone will be able to give you an answer.

Aah, of course, I thought that it was a project total rather than a compiled total. I'd completely forgotten that I'd PDFd a single chapter.

Thanks Katherine.

Project Totals Anomaly

Usually the box at the top shows the total number of words for the project & session, as per the example below. Screenshot 2020-06-30 at 22.28.53.png But on my latest project, it shows as: Screenshot 2020-06-30 at 22.29.54.png Yet the project contains 26,281 words so I'm a little confused.

Re: Scrivener Crashes

1) Try holding down the Shift key while you open Scrivener, as that will open it without loading any project. If it opens like that, then try loading the project you were the last working on; if it crashes then, there's something wrong in the project. If that's the case, zip it up and attach it to ...

Re: Scrivener Crashes

The first thing I'd try is, with Scrivener closed, go to ~/Your Username/Library/Preferences (hold down Opt and click on the "Go" menu in finder to get there) find com.literatureandlatte.scrivener3.plist and move it onto your desktop. Then open Scrivener, it'll create a new Preferences fi...

Re: Compiling for Kindle -Table of Contents

Scratch the above. It seems I borked it by putting 'CONTENTS' at the top of the ToC page.

Re: Compiling for Kindle -Table of Contents

Hi Marc, Are you using version 2 or 3? I'll assume 3 for now. Items get put in the ToC if the section layout they have assigned has a page break in, so if both folders and documents are bing inserted try assigning a different section type to documents and then assigning a different layout to that s...

I'm trying to compile for a Kindle ebook but I'm having issues regarding the table of contents, it 's including everything (folders & documents. I know I can just remove the folders but the issue is that it's including the front matter. Does anyone know how to exclude specific documents from the...
