Re: any news on Windows 3 version?

Ahm... excuse me for interrupting this oh so interesting sub-thread about different operating systems in different sectors of society, but... In what way is this related to the question in the opening post? Don’t you think you’re debate fits better in some other part of the forum? Although this kind...

Re: Learn from iOS ...

I use the Mac version more than the iOS version, and the Recent list is more than enough, because I have more than one Mac and don’t necessarily work on the same projects on my different Mac:s. And what I have synced with my iOS Scrivener is just the few projects I want to be able to access when out...

Yep, just remove the Sync with external folders settings and you’ll be fine

Re: Sync to Dropbox issue

Why are you using "sync with external folder"?
To sync via Dropbox you only Save the project in a Dropbox folder and then point Scriv on your iDevice to look into that folder for syncing.

Re: How do I change the font & font-size for all drafts?

A project can only have one Draft folder, which Scrivener accepts as The Draft. If all you imported is inside that Draft, use scrivenings view to show it all in the editor, Select All, and then there is a Convert to default format somewhere, possibly under the Edit menu.

Re: Opening projects created with Mac v. 2 with Win v.3

If I have Scrivener open, and I try to open the zip file, it says: "The file is not a Scrivener project file. Please, select a valid Scrivener project file." Scrivener can’t open zip files. You need to do what rdale says: double-click the zip file to unzip it. Then you can open the projec...

Re: Shortcut for Bold and Italic not working with Times New Roman

Do you have the Cheat Sheet installed? It looks up all the keyboard shortcuts in apps and display them when you long-press the command key. If Scrivener beeps, the shortcuts shouldn't exist, or could possibly be mapped to something else, which should be seen in the Cheat Sheet.

I do a similar thing, doing Option-space to open an Alfred search. I start most apps that way and use Alfred for a variety of other things as well

Re: Dissapointment in the Windows Team

Because I come to the forums from time to time looking for news on WinV3 and pop in infrequently except for this past month, when I finally had to register and speak my piece. I think this is one of the things that irritate some of the long term users who spend a lot of time trying to help newcomer...

Re: File/Options/Editing/Formatting could use a Style to set the default formatting for Main text style.

No, because a majority of text is supposed to have No style, only direct formatting (italics, bold, underline).

I think this is explained in the interactive tutorial.

Re: Missing a Normal Style

No, it wouldn’t, because styles are only meant for special cases of text, clearly deviating from the main text, and which you need to handle in a special way in Compile. There is not meant to be any connection between what the text looks like in the Editor, while you are writing, and the final outpu...

Re: Lost writing due to faulty syncing

I think the problem is that most people here have also experienced syncing that works without a five step process and a lingering sense of uncertainty, which is why this keeps coming up time and again. I think the problem is that a lot people expect their devices to understand what they are expecte...

Re: Commitment & responsibility...

I am, however, pointing out that anyone who even dreams of saying something with even a whiff of VALID criticism gets taken down by certain people in this forum, and may get a rude remark by someone representing the company itself. Yes, of course. What is ” valid criticism”? In what way are posts t...
