Bombarded with alternatives

Hi. Love Scrivener. Long time user. Big promoter of it. Happy. However, I'm being bombarded with writing alternatives and, I have to say, some of them are looking appealing. I know these alternatives are sucking me in with swish cloud based functionality, advanced tagging, and cool promises, however...

Re: Scrivener App folder renamed to .scrivx?!

Thanks that worked! *phew*

I'll set everything back up in Dropbox now and sync it with iOS, then it should be good.

Thank you so much :D

Re: Scrivener App folder renamed to .scrivx?!

So just to be clear, Scrivener has overwritten a folder to become an executable. If I view the content of that file I see all my work. I don't know how to convert my scriv executable back to a Folder again. Help!

Scrivener App folder renamed to .scrivx?!

Hi there. (Note this might sound like an iOS issue, but it's not). Whilst going through some of my old scriv files, something has happened to my iOS Scrivener App folder (which has all my working files in). It's now called Scrivener app.scrivx and I can't open it.

Re: Find & Replace for multiple words

I figured it out... I was using: Project Replace: which didn't find anything. But by doing Apple+F it called up a different search and replace box and worked. Makes me wonder why there are two Find & Replace features, and what Project Replace does exactly - because despite saying it finds text i...

Find & Replace for multiple words

Hi there. Sorry, but this feels like a dumb question, but I've searched and searched and can't find the answer. Find and Replace is great and works perfectly, but if I want to replace more than one word I get no results! Eg: I want to replace: 'said Ethan' with 'Ethan said' What am I doing wrong? Th...

Merging .scriv files?

Hi. Is it possible to merge to separate scrivener files? (.scriv) note: not to merge/split pages within a scriv, but to join separate files? If so, how is the best way to achieve this? Context: I have a large file with lots of images which was slowing down my computer, so in an attempt to speed thin...

Re: Force images to scale full size?

Ok I think I'm a little closer to figuring this out. If I take a screenshot of a page, and import the image, everything is good. However, if an imported image is at 180dpi (not my choice, that is how it was supplied) this image is resized to 200pixels wide when it should be 550 pixels Screen Shot 20...

Re: Force images to scale full size?

Sorry, I think I didn't explain well enough... My images are of the correct size, and imported into Scrivener fine. The problem is dragging them from Scrivener into my page: the image defaults to 256 pixels - so I have to manually up-scale them to their correct size. There is no quality loss. Is the...

Force images to scale full size?

Hi there.

All my images I'm dragging into my editor are around 256pixels wide, when I want them to be full size (640pixels). I realise I can scale each one individually, but can I change the default setting from 256 to 640 for all my images somehow? I have a lot of images!

Thanks - Mark

Compile Select All / Deselect All shortcut?

Hi there. I was wondering if there is a shortcut I don't know about to select deselect all files in my compile window. I know how to Cmd+click them, but I have a lot of files and select lots or a few just for printing or setting my Project Target counts, is painful without a select shortcut. What do...

Can't open my file!

Hi there. I am not able to open my story on my PC. Here's my setup: Windows 8.1, Mac OSX 10.9.5, and Dropbox. I've just been typing away on my story on the Mac, saved everything Dropbox (watched it finish), then switched to my PC, sync'd Dropbox (watched it all download), and tried to open the same ...
