Re: Have license, getting a new computer

You just need your license information from your purchase. If you've lost it, you can contact support and I'm sure they'll find it for you.

Re: Won't print chapter titles

Always refer to this blog post when chapter titles are not doing what I expect them to. It is very useful.

Re: Cannot open old project

It should be possible to open the project in V2, then also open V3 and drag the folders across from V2 and drop them into a new project in V3.

Re: Suggestion: Improved Grammar and Style Checker in both Win and Mac Versions

I think that anyone who's read my posts this year knows how much I want this. :mrgreen: There is a desktop version of PWA that will open native Scrivener files for editing, but doing that is still an interruption of the workflow. It's the best current solution for Scrivener users though. The PWA peo...

Re: Formatting the first letter of a new chapter

Kindle Create has a style which creates DropCaps, so that may be the easiest solution if you want to publish through Amazon.

Re: scrivener 3 for windows?

Version 3 is available as a free beta, updated monthly. It is in its 13th iteration of a pre-release version. It is becoming more and more stable every month. There is no need to 'wait' for it. If you are willing to put up with possible quirks and crashes, it is available now, for nothing. :mrgreen:...

Re: Writing aids?

Thanks. I'll see if I can write my own AI to do it. I hate spending money, particularly subscriptions (I'm from the 70's where you buy something and i'ts yours :) ) You can use PWA free online as long as you only check 500 word or so passages (copy-check-paste) There are other free solutions that l...

Re: Writing aids?

No. Scrivener doesn't do that. You need to use a third party app. Free or paid, your choice. (PWA, Grammarly, etc.) The other thing to do is to use Scrivener for its original purpose: plan, arrange and write the book. After the manuscript is finished, export it to Word and use all those built-in fea...

Re: Renewed respect for Scrivener after really trying to move to Ulysses

Thanks for the reply there, Keith. As I've mentioned before, I moved away from Scrivener for workflow reasons. I looked at Ulysses, but it didn't do exactly what I wanted, and the lack of the overview was one of the principal things that put me off. I am considering coming back to Scrivener for my n...

Re: Exporting to .mobi doesn't work anymore (3.2 + Big Sur)

I don't know if you're aware, but Amazon recently told us to use ePub, not Mobi for Kindle Create.

I realise you may have other reasons for wanting Mobi, but it's starting to look like Amazon are going to drop the requirement.

Re: Integrated Grammar/Style checker option

I'm sorry if this came across as a 'threat'. The fact is, as I said, I am already using another offering and am partway through my third novel in it. I loved Scrivener, back when I wrote previous novels with it, but the workflow is better in the new program, which I wasn't going to name since this i...

Integrated Grammar/Style checker option

Both Ulysses and Papyrus Author Pro already offer this. Ulysses uses an external site to run the checks, PAP uses its built in grammar/style checker. The PAP one is superior, but costs three times the Ulysses sub. I have Pro Writing Aid, but gave up using it because of the lack of integration with S...

Re: Sending a compiled book to a Kindle to edit

Last time I did this, iirc, I created the EPUB file, then change the file ending to PNG, then sent that using the SendToKindle desktop app and it opened up in Kindle as an ebook.
