Re: Small DropBox Tip

Hi, OK, mister script guy :) I know you're stating this like it's an easy thing but... what do you mean save this as a script and just run it? (Windows i'm talking about) I don't have a windoze box here to try it on, but what you need to do is copy and past the above code into notepad and save it as...

Re: Small DropBox Tip

Hi All Turns out the script was far easier than I though it would be: dropbox stop scrivener dropbox start This works perfectly on Linux, and I don't see why it wouldn't on Windoze, I'm afraid you Mac guys are on your own thoug I know next to nothing about your OS LOL <sorry> Anyway, to use the abov...

Re: Small DropBox Tip

Hi All Just had a thought (I'm a Linux guy, so not sure about the mac/windoze), but it should be possible to to write a script to pause DropBox syncronisation, start Scrivener, then resume syncronisation after you quit Scrivener. So insteaed of starting Scrivener normally, run the script instead and...

Re: First Draft in 30 Days

Hi, Has anybody put together a template for this (that they wouldn't mind sharing)? After reading through the articles, it seems it would be quite easy to adapt to a Scrivener template, but I'm only a third of the way through the tutorial, so what the hell would I know LOL I'll probably give the rou...

Re: Small DropBox Tip

Aha!

I was under the impression the tip was to stop the local copy from being synchronised with a remote copy while you were using it. I have only ever used DropBox to recover a file once (in years of heavy use), so it didn't even cross my mind that was what the tip was for. Thanks ;^>

Re: Small DropBox Tip

Hi, Perhaps I'm missing something, but as far as I'm aware DropBox only synchronises only when there is something to synchronise. Therefore if you have a file/files open locally, and nowhere else, DropBox is effectively on pause anyway, the only difference is you don't need to un-pause it when you f...

Re: GNU/Linux version ?

Hi

I too would love a Linux version of this tool. Reading the original thread got me quite excited until Antony talked the author out of doing it cross-platform Doh!

Anyway, will keep an eye out on the off chance.

Re: Split Wine / Native?

Hi,

As this board doesn't have a +1 button, I'll just have to post a message saying:

+1

I Think as the project continues to grow it will get more and more confusing here without a split.
