Re: Faster start for new page

I tested my own question. It will not save the record when data is only entered into the Synopsis.

Re: Faster start for new page

The simplest solution would be to keep a "quick notes" document for when you only have a few lines. Alternatively, you could put your few lines in the Synopsis, directly from the file creation screen. Katherine Thanks for the ideas. If I’m typing into the synopsis, would Scrivener save th...

Faster start for new page

While in the iOS version in a Project, when I click the + to create a new page, I am shown a page that asks for a Title and Synopsis. If I just click Open in the upper right I can go straight to a new page. The first line of text that I enter on this page will show as the title in the Binder. Is the...

Import file automation?

Im playing with Automator and Alfred app. Anyone know of easy way to automate importing? I tend to download a bunch of PDF's and then upload them later to Scrivener. It would be great to automate that. Any suggestions?

Freeze when deleting sheet

Each time I delete a sheet, regardless of the content, I get the spinning beach ball. Ive already emptied the trash but still get the same result.

I think L&L answered that syncing stops if the screen locks or you swap to another app.



Eek, that's frightening.

Re: iOS Mindmapping integration?

I invested in Mindnode. I can make edits on my Mac and it syncs perfectly through iCloud to my iPhone. It syncs superbly. So when I need a Mindmap, I just use Mindnode.

Re: What will you do with Scrivener for IOS that you couldn't do before?

Given the nature of the research I'm doing, I can't give up a Mac. I need to make notes in PDF's and be able to search through all their text for keywords. A few months ago I purchased a 13 inch Macbook Pro from eBay and it really does the job well. For me, the advantage of iOS is that if I don't ha...

Re: DropBox Sync suggestion

Are you clicking one of the buttons shown in a red circle when you finish editing on your iPhone/iPad? This sends the file back up to DropBox and it will then appear on your Mac.

Re: Dropbox Sync Not Working

Your file seems zipped. You don't need to zip the file, it should end in .scriv only. Are you maybe uploading a backup file in error?

Re: DropBox Sync suggestion

Okay, but why would you do that? If you're sitting in front of the iOS version, why would you bring up the Mac version to make a change? And if you do -- say you want features that the iOS version doesn't have -- then why wouldn't you let the iOS version sleep? Yes, I understand that synchronizatio...

No one is talking about "magic". I appreciate your hard work, it's a suggestion from one programmer to another. :D There may be a valid reason not to do it.

Re: DropBox Sync suggestion

It has to do with the current state of Scrivener on iOS. Here's what happens: 1. You are on the main iOS screen of Scrivener where the files are listed (your file is technically closed at this point). Don't close Scrivener or let the device sleep. 2. Go to Mac, make a change on Mac, sync and close t...

Re: Security and encryption

People think that because Dropbox claims encryption that a file is private on the cloud. That is not the case with Dropbox. Once a file is uploaded to their server, they hold the encryption keys, so they can easily look at your files. It's kind of bold statement on their part. Is it encrypted, yes. ...
