Re: Location of Table of Contents

That solved my problem by manually creating a TOC chapter and using the Edit | Copy Special (or something like that) to create the linked entries. The only problem is that you have to manually delete the page number references for an eBook. It would be nice if there was an option to just include the...

Re: Support for Dual Monitors

Thanks for the suggestion but unfortunately my desktop is Windows based and my only Mac is an MBA. .

Re: Is it Possible to Automate Compiler for Different Scenarios

Thanks rDale,

I'll give that a try. I wasn't sure if other people had this question or not, but thought it would be nice if you could setup the fore and back matter to be linked to a single switch for the desired destination.

Is it Possible to Automate Compiler for Different Scenarios

If you publish a story to different publishers is there a way to configure the Compiler to make all the necessary changes? If you have a set of front matter and back matter for multiple publishers, is there a way to configure the compiler to select the appropriate set of front matter and back matter...

Re: Buying ProWritingAid? Read this first.

I have PWA but actually find it easier to use with Grammarly. I just open a blank document in Word then copy and paste the chapter from Scrivener to Word. After checking it with Grammarly, I copy and paste it back into Scrivener. The only issue I've seen is to delete the Scrivener document before pa...

Re: Dropbox & backup location

What I've found in use is that the lock file that Scrivener opens in DropBox takes a minute or so to update when you close Scrivener. If you save/close Scrivener then check DropBox to be sure it is up to date then close your laptop, the lock file is not immediately removed. This causes Scrivener to ...

Support for Dual Monitors

It would be nice if Scrivener would support dual monitors such that you could have multiple document windows open at the same time. I realize that you can have multiple windows open but that just chops up your working window into a number of little windows.

Re: Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

I use DropBox and Scrivener on both PC Windows 10 Pro and MacBook Air running the latest version (14.15.2?) and have experienced no problems with either DropBox or Scrivener. I move back and forth between operating systems seamlessly. My desktop is Win10 and I use interchangeably my MBA and Lenovo L...

Re: Buying ProWritingAid? Read this first.

I've got ProWritingAid myself and find it cumbersome to work with when compared against Grammarly. I'd suggest that more people write to Grammarly and suggest that they support Scrivener. The squeaky wheel always gets the grease.

Re: Dropbox & backup location

I normally store my document files in DropBox. My question is this: If I use a MacBook and a Windows 10 Pro PC, can I work on the same project without doing anything special? I write a lot when I'm away from my desktop and use DropBox to access my files. With DropBox and Word, the switch is seamless...

Is it possible to share a common file between projects?

If I have a common file for back matter, such as the author's bio, can I have a common file that I share between projects? If I only have one file, it would be easier to keep up to date.

Location of Table of Contents

Compiling for an ebook, the TOC shows up immediately after the Cover picture and above the Title and Copyright. Is there a way to move the TOC to be inserted after the Front Matter? I can't seem to find anything about the auto generated TOC in the manual or the two books I've bought.
