Re: Faster Internal Linking (drag and drop link not page/right click to copy link)

The square bracket linking method combined with ctrl-esc to auto-complete the title of documents is really useful. FYI, here is what appears to be a minor issue: 1. I tried the method, typed '[[' then started entering a document title and completed it using ctrl-esc. Worked as expected. I complete t...

Re: Kindle MOBI and Advanced Typesetting

I agree that this probably has nothing to do with Scrivener. To get enhanced typesetting on my books, I use Calibre and the KFX plugin from J. Howell. The plugin takes an epub book and generates a KFX format file using Kindle Previewer. The resulting KFX file has enhanced typesetting, including page...

Re: Working from my new MacBook Pro M1 with Big Sur

I got my M1 Mac mini (16GB Ram 1TB SSD) on Nov 25. Scrivener 3.2.1 works perfectly. Quick benchmark. Compiled a project which includes 20 or so images and is about 70,000 words. Compare performance to my 2018 Mac mini (core-i7, 64GB ram, 512GB SSD). Compile to epub: 2018 Mac mini, intel core-i7: 8.3...

Re: iOS 14 - Heads-up: No way to access non-Apple fonts in Scrivener

I have iThoughts and save all its files in Dropbox. iThoughts on my 2018 iPad Pro 12.9 With iOS 14.01 works without issue. These issues are obviously very complex. Only suggestions I have you have probably already thought of: 1. Reboot the iPad from power off. 2. Uninstall/reinstall Scrivener. 3. Cu...

Re: iOS 14 - Heads-up: No way to access non-Apple fonts in Scrivener

I know this isn't a Dropbox forum, but . . . You comment that ios14 Files app doesn't allow access to cloud services other than iCloud. If I open the files app on my 2018 iPad Pro 12.9 running iOS 14.01, my Dropbox folder is still there and I can access files in it. I have also used Dropbox, from Sc...

Re: iOS 14 and Scrivener

I have a 2018 12.9" iPad Pro. I updated to iOS 14 and have run Scrivener on three different projects, syncing them via Dropbox. I have only done a bit of writing and navigating around the projects, mostly proofing.

I have seen no issues with Scrivener and iOS 14.

Re: Auto-complete

I assume you are talking about the project menu setting for "auto-complete list". If so, then I believe, from experience, that the way it works is is simply matches the start of the word you are typing with entries in the list and presents them for auto-completion. For example, I have an a...

Re: Trying to compile and replace my manuscript empty lines with no empty lines

Use Edit->Text Tidying->Remove Empty Lines Between Paragraphs to do this.

This menu item also includes other useful editing things, like removing double spaces and such.

Re: Scrivener 3 improving the auto-completion feature

I use Project Settings/Auto-Complete List for this. This requires manual entries for what you want completed so is not automated like you desire. However, there is some advantage to that as manual entries can be more specific and targeted than any automated process. I find too many of these type of ...

Re: Footnotes

Okay, no one else seems to want to comment, so I will :) Another weird formatting problem with footnotes: If the footnote marker is in an indented block of text, like a block quote, then the footnote is also indented on the footnote page in the compiled epub. This sure looks like a formatting error ...

Footnotes

I have been finalizing a book which has a number of footnotes and noticed a couple of odd things. First, some of my footnotes contain URLs which I want to be active links. However, then I first entered these (I was using "footnote" not "inline footnote") some of the URLs were not...

Keep with next and ePub compile

In my compile configuration, I have a "scene" type that prints the title of the section and then the text. It does not do a section break before or after the scene type. When compiling to ePub I often see section titles orphaned at the bottom of an ePub page break. To try to fix this, I ed...

Re: Problem with keyword and custom metadata searches.

Amber, I think that the "save and rebuild search indexes" fixed this. It is now working as I expect. I had previously closed the project, closed Scrivener, and reopened, which I thought did the same thing, but still had the problem. Could have been fooled by looking at a saved collection r...
