Re: Scrivener/Scapple for Windows Activation under Wine

Wine 4.0.2 comes with Mono, which does not allow the license activation to work. Mono apparently has problems with TLS 1.2, which is required for the license activation component to connect to the server. The following steps have resolved the problem for some users: 1. Open the terminal window (Ctr...

Can I load Scrivener onto another computer?

200404 I bid Windows farewell & replaced '7 with Linux Mint. Y'don't have a current Scrivener version for Linux, I've asked already. May I load Scrivener onto another (Win7) computer and use my existing key to continue using the program? Haven't found a Linux program that I like nearly as well a...

Maybe an update will fix it...) Clicked Help > Check for Update... Scrivener closed. Reopen. The file opens at the initial docum...

Re: Each Chapter, First Paragraph Only, No Indent

I know the Windows version hasn't got all the features of the Mac version, but still it might be worth a try to look for this (which is how it looks on a Mac): In Compile, in the Formatting pane, there is a tick box "Override text and notes formatting". If you tick that you can set up all...

Re: Each Chapter, First Paragraph Only, No Indent

170406 I found another post suggesting that if one were to check the checkbox in the Meta-Data sector of the Inspector panel the outcome that I desired, no indent on first chapter-paragraph, could be achieved. Yup. Made such changes as were needed, checked the 'Compile As-Is' checkbox, saved compile...

Re: Each Chapter, First Paragraph Only, No Indent

You've altered your documents, but the formatting applied by the compiler is overwriting what you're doing. I'm a fan of putting in my own tabs, so in the compiler settings, Formatting page, I selected documents of Level 2+ (so, at least beneath the chapter level) and in there I adjusted the ruler ...

Kindlegen and KF8 file format

This question is based upon a discussion I've been having with a software guy who is writing a simple program intended to create e-Books using Kindlegen. His interest is creating a file that will have color images and he suspects that KF8 format is what he will want to use. His question to me: Does ...

Re: Chapter 2 Compiled with 'Chapter 3' title in ToC

Is there anything in the ebook itself, in the text, between the end of chapter 1 and the title chapter 3? Nope. And just to make certain, I'll check again before I fire this into the ether... Nope, at the end of chapter 1 is some white space to the bottom of the scene; After a half-page of white sp...

"And now," he said beginning the sentence with 'and', "I gotta do something about the tiny text size on Binder, menus, and etc." I don't recall how I changed that before. The Inspector is no prob, CTL+ mouse wheelage, it's the rest of the text that is sized for teenage eyes. How ...
