Re: Folder has become file

Oh dear - apologies.
What I think I am seeing is lines of text from folders below (not the PDFs obviously) separated by a black line. I haven't used Scrivener for a while - I presume this is an updated feature as I don't remember it in my earlier version.

Re: Folder has become file

PS Scrolling down I've found there is text within this double page spread-like folder but it won't let me delete it.

Re: Folder has become file

Folder has become file

Hi - when dragging a document, it landed actually in my Research folder by mistake. Now, although I've deleted all the text from it, the Research icon is still showing as a file rather than a folder. How can I change it back to a folder? Convert > still shows it as a folder, incidentally. I'm nervou...

Re: Looking for perfect task manager?

Hi there In the end for this particular project, I have mainly been using an old fashioned spreadsheet called pencil and paper! But I have found Things to be very useful as extended tasks software. It has a good project section and reminders and also syncs with my iphone. Not the perfect solution bu...

Re: Looking for perfect task manager?

I'd use a spreadsheet to track overall progress: Item description, file identifier, location in manuscript Rights holder identified? Rights holder contacted? Permission received/denied/offered pending fee? Fee paid? Manuscript updated with appropriate credit? Item removed if permission not received...

Re: Looking for perfect task manager?

Well, I tracked my progress securing all the permissions for my first book in one big MS Word doc and I didn't have an assistant. I guess times change... Btw are you sure you can't do what you want with Things? It sounds almost as though you are searching for the One True Perfect Piece of Software ...

Re: Looking for perfect task manager?

Many thanks for the various suggestions, and especially to you Rebecca, for your thoughtful reply. The first group of suggestions are really too basic for me, just To Do/Done lists without the option to put in any follow-up work needed, I'm afraid. Rebecca, I will look at Entourage though I try and ...

Looking for perfect task manager?

I've wasted hours today looking for a software programme that I just don't think exists - unless any of you know better. I'm working on a non-fiction book in Scrivener but now I've got to the stage of having to chase up illustrations. So what I want is some project management software that will allo...

Searching labels and/or status

Hi
Is there anyway I can do a search on my Research labels and/or status? I have created titles saying 'Used' and 'Not yet used' and I'd like a simple way to find out which are which. Is this possible?
Thanks!

Re: HELP!!!!! Scrivener has wiped out a month's work

The good news is that I have found my work - but I'm still not quite sure how. There was obviously some glitch in the transfer to v.1.5. It wasn't being saved in the Tutorial folder but its own so that wasn't the problem. But Scrivener does need to do something about that opening message on v. 1.5. ...
