Re: Caution - iTunes Update and what it means?

I've always used the UI *Add* method rather than drag and drop. Have you tried it? Yes, I have tried this, and I cannot make it work. The “add” button merely descends into the folder to try to let you select one of its individual files. It will not let you select the full folder required for a work...

Re: Caution - iTunes Update and what it means?

+1 to what Katherine said. I prefer not to use third party or cloud services.

Re: Caution - iTunes Update and what it means?

There is however a new tab for file transfer called "File Sharing" that lists the apps that use this functionality and it looks pretty much the same. So Scrivener file transfer using iTunes remains intact. So managing files remains, managing apps is gone along with iTunesU and ringtones. ...

Re: Saving/Loading Compile Presets

I made sure to get the correct one this time (v1.8 for Windows, Jan 2015). I imagine that will make my attempts to make sense of it a little less frustrating! :oops: Remember that the manual is automatically installed along with Scrivener, you don't need to worry about downloading it as a separate ...

Re: Saving/Loading Compile Presets

A collection may be a good way to go too, but IMHO only for very simple binder structures. It has the disadvantage of compiling everything as a flat list and not letting you take advantage of all the multi level formatting settings. :!: Thanks. I was just starting to read up on collections, but fro...

I don't see "Compile Group" as an option in the program. Is this a Mac-only feature?

Saving/Loading Compile Presets

I have a Scrivener file that contains a number of components (front matter, chapters, scenes, etc.). What I want is to set up different sets of include settings depending on the content and type of output document that I'm trying to build. (For example: settings for PDF vs. EPUB, publishing sets of ...

Re: I absolutely HATE Scrivern's Compile "feature"!

------ It does so because when I re-open the Compile window, my settings haven't been saved even though I've tried "Save Preset" the Compile tool reverts to Custom rather than uses my named settings file. In a way that doesn't matter because my settings changes didn't get into my named Se...
