Re: How to export a synopsis

I'm having the same problem. I'm following these steps: Open File ▸ Compile... Select the “Outline Document” compile Format in the left sidebar. Click the Assign Section Layouts... button below the preview column in the middle. Likely you want to select all of the section types in your project in th...

Re: Is Dropbox enough?

I remember in version one there were some issues with saving whole project files via dropbox and using them on two different computers. Has that been sorted out in version 2.0? Thanks!

Re: Working off of network drives (MobileMe; DropBox...)

FYI I've been using Dropbox and Scrivener flawlessly since Dropbox came out - opening projects on different computers without incident. The only issue I had was I once opened Scrivener before Dropbox updated and I had a previous version onscreen. But it fixed itself. Just thought I'd share.

Re: Scrivener for Screenwriting

It appears that I did write the outline with "Scene Heading" as the default and when I write within the document/outline beat/scene it starts with Scene Heading. However, when I try and use Edit Scrivening it defaults to General Text. Not sure how to remedy. The command key plus Y and then...

Re: Scrivener for Screenwriting

Helps a LOT! Thank you! It's now VERY close to what I need (minus the necessary running page count), but I'm finding one niggling issue. When I arrow down to the next scene it automatically goes to "General Text" which is annoying. Generally if you're starting a new scene it should start o...

Scrivener for Screenwriting

I've been hunting around for an answer in the forums tonight, but haven't gotten a completely clear one yet. I love Scrivener. Been using it for a couple of years for outlining my screenplays, but I'd love to be able to write a draft in Scrivener instead of keeping it open and writing in Final Draft...

Screenwriting Needs

I love that you guys are the "First Draft" for Final Draft, but for the screenwriting aspect of Scrivener to work for me (the outlining part is fantastic) I would need to see my running page count at the bottom of the page (it's imperative to the trade - I'm always asked to cut or add page...

Re: Thesaurus/Dictionary

Yup, my settings were set to open the full dictionary, never knew about the pop-up until this post thread, so it's all good. Thanks for the tip!

Re: Thesaurus/Dictionary

Maybe my settings are off but when I do the right-click I get the full dictionary, not the pop-up.

Re: Thesaurus/Dictionary

I know but it's on a long list of options and the full dictionary is so bulky it takes a lot of time to load, even on my brand spanking new iMac. The Control-Command D option is much faster and I'd love for a button on the interface because I'm not really a shortcut or macro guy. I like the mouse. B...

Re: Thesaurus/Dictionary

I was just about to echo the request for a built-in Thesaurus/Dictionary when I read one of the replies here with a tip to press "Control-Command D" to open a mini-OS X Dictionary/Thesaurus. And now that I know I can do this, I'd like to request a button on the Scrivener interface that wil...

Re: Creating New Scene in Full Screen Mode?

Perfect. Thanks. I also figured out that you can do CMD-K to split scenes while in Full Screen.

Creating New Scene in Full Screen Mode?

Is it possible to add a new scene, on-the-fly, in Full Screen Mode? Is there a shortcut key to do this? Or do I have to just write and separate/split at the end of my writing session?
