Re: Scriv freezes after I try to shrink an image from the web

The Escape key trick never worked for me. I will try the Control key variant. I personally use Photoshop to control the size of images but in the situation I described I copied and pasted a fairly large web document in which all photographs appeared "normal" in size, e.g., half a column wi...

Scriv freezes after I try to shrink an image from the web

After I copy a web page and paste it into Scrivener, with photographs in it, some of them become quite large. If I right-click on them to adjust their size, from time to time, Scrivener freezes and I just hear a beep every time I try to do anything. I can move the windows, go to other apps, etc., bu...

New iPad Pro won't sync some files

I have been using Scrivener with a recent iMac, a Mac laptop ca 2012, and the iPhone 7 Plus with few problems. I have 17 projects in my Dropbox Scrivener folder, which weighs in at about 3 GB. The one project that seems to be the culprit is the largest, 460 MB in size. I recently added the new iPad ...

Re: Dropbox sync tries to sync too many files, hangs

I have got some pretty big projects on the go and I regularly run into this problem, whether it tries to sync too many files or not. But everything always works on the second try.

Re: iPad air, mini or pro?

I have a drawer full of bluetooth keyboards. The best one so far, is the iClever Ultra Slim 3 Color backlight. It is a full-size keyboard , but foldable so it fits easily in a coat pocket or purse. https://www.amazon.com/Foldable-iClever-backlight-Bluetooth-Smartphone/dp/B018K5EJCQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF...

Re: Dropbox zips everything and Scrivener doesn't see zipped files

There are three "dropboxes", and I think there may be some assumptions/confusion regarding the difference. One is dropbox.com, the website; you can browse, upload, and download files and folder via that interface--this is NOT the way to set up syncing between the iOS version and a desktop...

Re: Feature Request: Allow sub folders & organizing on the Project List page

Absolutely love Scrivener for iOS. I've been toying with it all day. I'm sure you're overwhelmed with feedback and requests, but I'll humbly add this one to the list anyway: I have several dozen projects I'm tracking in the app, and it would be nice if the list of available Projects could be sorted...

Re: Dropbox zips everything and Scrivener doesn't see zipped files

When I move my Scrivener files from my Mac to Dropbox they get zipped for some reason and Scrivener doesn't see them. What am I doing wrong? Are you moving them in Finder? Dropbox is just another folder in Finder, or at least that is the way you should handle it. And moving files within Finder does...

Re: Dropbox zips everything and Scrivener doesn't see zipped files

I sure hope a copy and paste works from within Dropbox because I'm in the process of moving 21,000 files and it says it will take 7 1/2 hours. I can't believe there are 21,000 individual little files, but I have five backups for each project. The tutorial really needs to explain every step of this ...

Re: Dropbox zips everything and Scrivener doesn't see zipped files

It wouldn't let me drag the files from the Finder to Dropbox. Will try with a different computer. Thanks.

Yes, this is the main flaw in the tutorial so far.

Reorganizing binder with split screen?

I now have hundreds of files and dozens of folders in the binder. I wish I could split the binder and use the top part to pick a folder while the bottom part of the binder would allow me to scroll through the binder, find the files I want to move to a different folder in the upper part of the split ...
