Re: Wonderdraft: Fantasy map creation tool

Well, it says it needs (bare minimum) an Intel HD Graphics 5000. The NVIDIA is recommended though. But now that I look at my old MB Air (2013 model), I've got a IHD Graphics 4000, so it might not run on mine either. :cry: I'm not in the market for a new computer (though I actually do want the latest...

Re: Wonderdraft: Fantasy map creation tool

Wow, that looks amazing. I tried randomly generating continents and islands using a photoshop technique, adapted to Pixelmator (which is a very nice tool, btw), but I ended up generating something that was just kind of "meh". It looks pretty easy (relative to from-scratch PS/Pixelmator tec...

Re: Window Q2

It's interesting, Beta 17 expires in 3 days, and they haven't posted another one yet, so maybe they are making the Q2 deadline. I've never seen them post an update about the next beta before it was made available to download, and they rarely post them until the last day or second to last day of the...

Re: Missing "Body" paragraph format preset

Scrivener's design is that you only style the text that differs from the main body, so when you export, you can override the (typically) vast majority of text formatting, while still preserving block quotes (as a style applied to just that text) and other similar styles. This allows an author to sto...

Re: How to add text to a form like document

However. In Scrivener, styles apply to paragraphs. Not to sentences, not to words. To paragraphs. You can change the font, size, color, et cetera of a single character, no issues, but you change the style and it will apply it to the entire paragraph. A minor correction: There are two types of style...

Re: Moving an existing project from Scrivener 3 to 2 and back to 3

The biggest concerns, if you've used these features much so far, would be: 1. Compile settings. If you've customized compile settings, and they're in the "My Formats" section of the compile listing, then you might want to edit the format and put them in the "Scrivener Formats" se...

Re: Why have all my project files suddenly disappeared?

Never store any of your documents inside the installation folder for any software; those folders can be completely wiped out when you update to a new version or an un-install (sometimes that's necessary if you're having issues). I suggest you put all of your documents in the Documents folder, and ma...

Re: Problem with Compiling

FYI, there's a section of the manual (and probably the tutorial project template) that has a list of binder icons that explain what each means. The folder with a text page overlay means you've written "on" the folder. You can see those from your screenshot, and the difference when you put ...

Re: Problem with Compiling

If I'm seeing things correctly, your folders don't "contain" text documents. If they did, then you'd see that little "disclosure triangle" like the one to the left of "Kaylee gets mad...", and when you clicked on it, the document would appear indented below it. Instead,...

Re: Does the iOS app use .scriv files? Can they be in iCloud?

Using the iCloud Desktop & Documents feature while you have Scrivener projects in them is a known way to corrupt your project. The issue as I understand it is that the iCloud feature expects you to interact with each off-loaded file individually, at which time, you wait for that file to be downl...

Re: Missing ‘arrange by label’ in corkboard

Mac version 3 was ready before Windows version 3, which is still in the open beta testing. Version 1 is the current Windows release (they'll be jumping release number from 1 to 3 when the beta is done).

Re: remove quotation marks on a page or entire project

Edit->Search->Project Replace will do the trick. If you have "smart" quotes, then copying and pasting the left quote, replacing it with nothing, and then repeating with the right quote mark is what you'd have to do.

Re: Two questions from a beginner.

My suggestion is now is the wrong time to begin exploring the beta, especially if you're not familiar with Scrivener 1. Beta 17 has a June 20 expiration--really not enough time to get familiar with it before it stops working. In all 16 cases after the release of Beta 1, they've managed to release a...

Re: How do I create a new scene from the corkboard?

Are you using the Beta? The toolbar doesn't look the same as mine. But you should be able to use the green + sign in the toolbar to create a new document as well. Also, if you go to the Scrivener preferences, you should be able to alter what it does in corkboard mode when you double-click on the cor...
