Re: Opening projects and files from within Scrivener

Thank you for the explanation. I thought maybe there was something else I was missing! A followup question--when I open files now it takes so long for them to open that I'm wondering if the file is opening or not. I haven't timed it. I just know how long it generally takes and that it's taking much ...

Thanks so much!

Moving the files you suggested to the desktop worked!

Now, how do I reset all my preferences?

Again--thanks so much!

Opening projects and files from within Scrivener

Recently I've begun having problems with Scrivener 3. I deleted it and downloaded a fresh copy and that didn't change anything. For a long time I've been having issues with Scrivener sometimes freezing so that I have to close and reboot the app. Since I have always been able to do that, I haven't wo...

Re: Using my scriv. App on husband’s iPad

Thanks so much! Once I figured out how to log out it was a piece of cake!

Now I hope I can get it to sync with Dropbox!

Using my scriv. App on husband’s iPad

My MacBook is in for repairs, I’ll on deadline, and I’m using the scriv app on my iphone to keep writing. My husband offered his iPad but the App Store isn’t letting me download is unless I buy it again. We’re in the same household and I thought I could put a copy on any device we own. Does the devi...

Switching to UK Spellings and Usage

In the past I was able to choose UK spellings and usage in Scrivener, but I can't figure out how to do it now. Even instructions I found by googling didn't seem to work any more. I'm changed my Mac's system preferences to UK and also my MS Word, but Scrivener is still showing American spellings. Hel...

Re: Compilation for mobi & epub problems

Thanks. I thought I'd already done that in one of my 12 attempts, but maybe not. Will certainly try again.

Also, "Cover" isn't showing up on my ToC. Not sure how to fix that.

Compilation for mobi & epub problems

I have been struggling with this for days, and with a Tuesday release date, I'm really up against the wall. Even though I've successfully created books this way before, this time, nothing is working. Is it the upgrade? No idea. Copying the settings for earlier books doesn't work. The ToC shows up li...

Re: UPDATE: "Untitled Document"

I hope it's not too late to tag along with this line of questioning... I have struggled for two days trying to get rid of 'untitled document' and/or fix my compilation issues the only way I could get them to work in the past, and have finally found that there IS no way to get rid of it-- Except, as ...

Creating Labels

I recently watched a video on creating mobi and epub from Scrivener, and saw a tool I'd like to incorporate into my own efforts--color-coding for each site/story. So that I can use red [for example] on the 'Other Books by the Author' that links to and is sold as a Kindle book, and blue for Nook, etc...

Re: Adding pages of screenplay to nonfiction book

I'd like it to fill the whole page, just as if it's a page of a script tucked in the book.

These imported smaller. Is there a way to add script pages without their size reducing?

Thanks.
