Re: Is Scrivener for Windows Falling Off

It was like pulling teeth to see the current version of windows, which I never did locate. You couldn’t have looked too hard. From the top of the main L&L page, select Products > Scrivener, then page to the bottom, and you’ll find a big red “Buy Now” button for each of the 3 Scrivener versions,...

Re: Composition Mode (Center Screen Typing)

If you can reproduce it consistently in a sample project, then zip it and post it here for L&L to review.

Re: Using Scrivener with Dropbox

Even at this moment, I have the document open on my Mac and Scrivener open on my iPad, but not the document. I may have misunderstood, but it sounds like you have the same Scrivener project open simultaneously on both your Mac and your iPad. If that is the case, you should change that habit. Best p...

Re: Wake me when version 3.0 for Windows is released

Hi KFH, Here's what I got from your post: - The iOS version was too hard/"intricate" for you to use - You're frustrated that v3 for Windows hasn't been released yet Frankly, I was and am fine with Windows v1--the past couple of years using Scrivener have been most productive for me--but ha...

Re: Urgent: Scrivener on iOS crashes on Dropbox sync

I can’t sync mine either. I did a whole heap of work on the plane today and now it’s wasted :( I don’t quite know how to unlink Dropbox and relink but from what others are saying it doesn’t work anyhow. Instructions to unlink/link are here: http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=24...

Re: Any way to set a keyboard shortcut for swapping editors?

Hi Tom,

I asked the same question back in September. :D

You can't set a specific Scrivener keyboard shortcut, but you can use existing menu shortcuts.

See this post: http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=39232

HTH,
Jim

Re: Question about setting up 3.0 alongside 1.9

Yes. A reinstall of 1.9 will make it the default again.

Re: Latest release crashes on Dropbox sync

I am using latest version iOS Scriv on iOS 10, on iPad and iPhone.

Based on the experiences upthread, I unlinked and relinked Dropbox prior to syncing the latest version of iOS Scriv, and never had an issue.

Sharing this info as an an FYI for L&L,

Re: Difficulties with Scrivener 3 (Split From: Great new version)

Maybe it's that I don't get the new Compiler paradigm. But to get it I have to find it, and even with all these posts, I haven't found it yet. In the meantime if you haven't already, watch the videos and read the Tutorial for what's new. But the interactive tutorial is a very good guide. It even in...

Re: Latest release crashes on Dropbox sync

I hear talk of unlinking and relinking but have no idea how to do that. From the projects screen, tap Edit (upper right), then the gearbox (lower right). Choose Unlink DropBox. Scrivener will ask "Delete or keep files?" I chose to Delete, which caused all my projects to resync. "Keep...

Re: Multiple Outliner layouts and assignable custom meta-data

Have you tried using the Layout Manager in the current version?

At least in the Windows version, it can save Outliner settings, so it may give you a workaround for the time being.

Re: New Scrivener install on iPad, won’t sync with laptop

Colleen, Enjoy your travels. For when you return, here is a very basic summary of how things should be set up -- sort of a consolidation of what everyone else has said above. DropBox - You need a DropBox Account. On the PC - Your PC needs Scrivener installed, and the DropBox Windows app installed an...
