Re: Password Security

Well...the disappointment for me with the IOS version lack of an application passcode (a la DropBox, for example) is that back in April 2013 when I suggested the same for the Mac version AmberV commented, "iPad programs are substantially different than standard computer software in that by defa...

Re: Password Security

Unfortunately, the lack of password security for the app (a la Dropbox or Evernote) is a major failure in the app. I'm sorry it cost me $20.00 to find out that it's unsuitable for my use. On Macs, the use of 'User profiles' is generally adequate to secure the Scrivener app and files (not perfect, bu...

Password Security

Is there no password protection for Scrivener beyond the iPad passlock? Projects on the Scrivener IOS should be secured with a passcode IMHO.

Re: Where is the Zen in this forum?

AmberV said: "'When do we get the Scrivener for IOS?' the monk asked. The master thwacked him over the head with a stick, 'You already have it', The monk was enlightened."

So there you have it...the sound of one hand clapping :-)

Re: Where is the Zen in this forum?

Annshu, respectfully... Lots of answers in all the forums, but maybe Zen is not the issue. Maybe the real Zen In this Scrivener forum Is questions unasked Perhaps another forum, grasshopper, has answers more suited to the questions not yet asked, although they, too, may lack the Zen :-) The only ete...

Re: Tabs Missing From Ruler

Well, to answer my own question...

I found that by toggling the page layout view icon I could get the tabs to reappear for all views. Curious, but...whatever works.

Tabs Missing From Ruler

Just opened an existing project and noticed that while all of my text is properly formatted with tabs that had been set, the tabs themselves are not showing on the ruler in composition mode. The ruler is showing no formatting information although indents and tabs have been set and are being applied....

Re: Project Shared Between Mac and PC

Thanks, Rob...I have a project working on both Mac and PC now, but I shortcut your suggestions a bit. I just copied the old project file on the Mac to a flash drive for archival backup and created a new blank project with a new name...then I selected and dragged the files from the old project on the...

Re: Project Shared Between Mac and PC

Again, updating issues between Mac and PC via Dropbox. Changes made on the Mac, properly saved and then properly project closed suddenly not being reflected on Win 8 PC and NOTHING works to correct the issue including 'Save As' on project to different name on Mac and then open on PC. Clearing Dropbo...

Re: Poetry template

The easiest 'template' is a blank page. Just set it up with your preferred text settings (font, size, line spacing) and go to it. There's also a poetry template in the Scrivener folder, but as you'll see, it's a blank page with author info as 'front matter'.

Re: Help with putting a template up online

It's easier than that if you have Dropbox. Just right click on the link to the .scriv file and 'copy link'. Paste the link in the browser and it will take you to a Dropbox page which provides the option to either download the file or copy it to your own Dropbox. Select copy to your Dropbox and you'l...

Re: Project Shared Between Mac and PC

Thanks, MM, but... Not only does clearing the Mac Dropbox cache not help, I also cleared the PC Dropbox cache to no avail. The fact that there is no cached version of the file in the Dropbox folder on either machine now and problem persisting, suggests to me again a Windows registry issue. I don't k...

Re: Project Shared Between Mac and PC

Well, nothing works, including duplicating the entire project inside the binder...it shows up in the docs file on the PC, but not in the PC's binder, so, suspecting a Windows registry issue, I took the cowardly way out and Exported the Duplicated Project Files and Imported them into a New Blank Proj...

Re: Project Shared Between Mac and PC

I last tried duplicating the file in the binder on the Mac which is the file that isn't showing up on the PC, and while I see the update occur on the PC, opening the updated file still fails to show the updated binder files. I went into the PC's project doc folder and verified that the project has t...
