Re: New Project Backed Up My Entire Desktop Instead of What it was Supposed To Do.

...and put the shortcut on my desktop... Are you positively absolutely 100% sure you put the *shortcut* on the desktop and not the actual *scrivx* file? Asking because, as rdale pointed out, what you've described is *exactly* what would happen if you moved a scrivx file to your desktop (or any othe...

Re: New Project Backed Up My Entire Desktop Instead of What it was Supposed To Do.

I opened up an old project, and selected Create New Project from the dropdown menu. Then I gave the new project a name in the popup, and told it to save my project to my Document folder. Initially, Scrivener did what it was told. I also created a shortcut to the .scrivx file, and put the shortcut on...

New Project Backed Up My Entire Desktop Instead of What it was Supposed To Do.

Twice in the last month I have created a new project. Both times, Scrivener mysteriously changed the name of my project from what I had picked to a project named Desktop, then backed up everything I have on my desktop into the .bak file, making one super-massive file. Also, the various parts of the ...

Can't Export Properly Anymore

All of a sudden Scrivener won't export files properly. I tried to export a large project, but only a few of the files were in it. I tested a subfolder with about 14 files, but it would only export about 3 of them. I tried exporting as plain text, rtf, and PDF, and both System code and UTF-8, and sti...

Project Notes Repeating Themselves

I have a Scrivener project that's broken up into book chapters, and I've been using the Project Notes panel on the lower right to keep track of the various to-dos I need for each chapter. Lately, a bug has crept in. Every time I write a new note in a single project window, the exact same note ends u...

Re: Footnotes vanish - become empty!

Correction: For Project Notes Box I actually mean the Document Notes Box in the lower right-hand corner.

Document notes vanished after reopening project

My project notes have completely vanished. I opened the project up and they were gone. I was able to recover them from an older version of my work, but this is one bug that needs to be fixed since I use the project notes box a lot. I'm using the Windows version of the software. One more thing. When ...
