Re: PC vs. iOS scriv: how's the usability on iOS?

thanks for your posts. I'm writing fiction with minimal research which will be done on the PC and phone. A lot of writing on the road: on the train, at coffee shops, etc. All I need is a good keyboard and a nice screen and an app that gets out of the way. So the iOS scriv, iPad, good keyboard combo ...

PC vs. iOS scriv: how's the usability on iOS?

Hi, I've been using Scriv on Linux for years. Just bought the iOS version and was wondering how usable it is vs. the PC version. I don't have an iPad yet, but am either going to buy an older Lenovo and run the Linux version, or go the iPad with a bluetooth keyboard route. Has anyone made the switch ...

I tried a totally different cover from another book and it worked!!?? Does anyone have a solution to this?...

Re: Crowd funding for Linux releases?

...I can do all that with Gedit and a couple of plugins. I prefer plain text docs... Hi Chris, I love Scriv. But I often stare at the Gedit window, imagining the side pane on the left filled with 70 or so txt docs, each a scene of a novel, all in one folder, and wonder if it would work. There's an ...

Re: Linux 1.9.01 Beta Released

Thank you for Scrivener for Linux. I'm very sad to hear it won't be updated, but I plan to continue using the Linux version anyway. Old laptop + linux + scrivener = happy writer.

mobi compile: how do I create a page with no title?

Hi, I've got a novel that compiles fine, chapter titles and text looks good. But I can't get the front matter pages: copyright and dedication, to display *without* titles showing up in the Contents section of the book. I get this: Contents Copyright Dedication Chapter 1 Chapter 2... I want this: (Co...

Re: save .scriv files to usb stick, open in different computers

Good idea about backing up to zip. Just did some more testing. The older 1.6.xx version of Scrivener for Linux I was using added some "\" backslashes in some of the directory names and Linux wouldn't copy them over. Bad filename. The new 1.7.2.x version does not add the backslashes when cr...

Re: save .scriv files to usb stick, open in different computers

thanks Garpu. I originally copied the entire folder straight in, but got a few error messages. But when I zipped the folder, then moved it over it worked fine.

save .scriv files to usb stick, open in different computers

Hi,

Is it ok to copy the .scriv folders to a usb stick, then use work on those files with two different computers: (linux mint) home desktop and road (linux mint) laptop?

I'm just checking because I don't want to bork my files. :) Didn't know if this was SOP or not.

thanks for any advice.
