Re: Word wrap around images + TOC and Appendix questions

If you need to do layout, you need a layout app, like Affinity Publisher. Scrivener can compile to many formats, but it’s not a wysiwyg editor and not a layout tool. It can create a ToC but it’s not a dynamic ToC, you make it when you are done writing. Scrivener is a writing software, not a desktop ...

Re: WORDS ARE KING to writers - THEY ARE OUR #1 PRIORITY!

I am creating a whole universe with several THOUSAND non-standard words: - - - This rings true for EVERY writer out there - fiction or non-fiction.

AND when you finish writing! Make a habit of syncing every time you open the app and before leaving it. Always back out to the project screen and sync before leaving the app.

Re: Project not appearing on iPad.

Just a hunch but all evidence points to iPad Dropbox not syncing at the same intervals as on your real computers ... On computers, the Dropbox app handles syncing in the background, while you are using the computer, irrespective of what you are doing. On an iPad, Scrivener itself handles the syncin...

We bothered to try to help you so I think you owe us an explanation. Plus, it might help others doing the same.

Re: Project not appearing on iPad.

And you are using Finder to check things..?

Re: Anything Not in Manuscript Shows Up Blank

A project is the whole .scriv folder. If you move or copy a project, you need to handle the whole folder as a unit.
Backups are the same. If they are zipped you need to unpack the zip-file and then handle the whole .scriv folder that results.

Re: Is Scrivener Backup still restricted to DropBox?

Dropbox is the only cloud service the iOS version can use. If you only sync between Macs or PCs you can use any cloud service that syncs the same way,
