Re: The Great Big Scrivener Survey

"Wrong" and "justified" are never words that mean very much : -) Please let's try not to transform this discussion into some kind of philosophical discourse ( Quid est veritas? ). Saying that something is wrong is just common language for saying that in your opinion something sh...

Re: The Great Big Scrivener Survey

A product like Scrivener, however, is only made possible by winning and retaining a large number of customers, and that is bound to bring a large variety of working contexts and learning styles. I'm not in the position to judge whether what is said in the first part of the sentence is true or not. ...

Re: The Great Big Scrivener Survey

Many folks just install and start using, turn to social media/forums/YouTube if they're confused, and consult documentation (including the tutorial) dead last. But perhaps they should do it the other way around, and first of all take a close look at the excellent Tutorial. I know of course that man...

Re: "The Scrivener Difference!" - BOOK

The manual may be somewhat awe-inspiring, but it's a truly monumental piece of work, and a great help if used as it should be used (which especially means: if you're ready to invest some time in it). And there is a growing number of other books on Scrivener, yes, but it looks like they're all beginn...

Re: The Great Big Scrivener Survey

Filling in the survey took me more than 15 minutes, yes, but it was a real pleasure! This very thorough survey reminds me of another thorough one , held two years ago by Joe Kissell, the publisher of the excellent Take Control Books. In that case, 85,3% of the respondents turned out to be 51 or olde...

Re: Scrivener doesn't seem to be able to handle large tables very well, anything I can do?

I'm using the Mac version; but yes, in my modest opinion table handling is one of the weakest features of this most excellent application. But I have no doubts this will be addressed in a future version.

Re: Would like some advice/opinions on a use of comments/footnotes

I can confirm Katherine's words: a single document of similar length would inevitably have serious performance issues. I'm working on a book that presently counts some 500.000 words in the main text, and some 100.000 in the notes. It is (of course, I would say) divided into many folders, each of whi...

Re: Can't export file without footnotes

Very simple: in "Compile" activate the option "Remove footnotes", and you won't see any footnotes.

Scrivener on a small iPhone

I have been a daily user of Scrivener since the times of Scrivener Gold; I couldn't imagine my life without Scrivener anymore. I also have an iPhone, but I didn't purchase the iOS version as yet. The reason is that in my opinion a compact iPhone like mine (7, with a 4.7" screen) is simply too s...

Problem with F-keys as shortcuts

I am using some of the F-keys as shortcuts for font faces: for instance, F3 for "Italic", and F4 for "Bold". These shortcuts figure of course under System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts: (Scrivener) Bold – F4, Italic – F3. But in the pull down menu, these shor...

Re: Scrivener 3.1 is going to be incredible!

Among the countless improvements of an already excellent application this new version brings us, is the fact that keyboard shortcuts are now shown in the styles panel. Would it be an idea to show them also in the format bar?
