That won’t work if you’ve changed the setting for the return key to use standard behavior....

Re: Spell check not working

I'm having the same issue with 3.0.4 and mojave 10.14.6 - restarting Scrivener fixes it, but only temporarily.

Corrections stop working

I've noticed (currently on Scrivener 3.1.4 and Mojave 10,14.6) that correction of spelling, smart quotes, etc. periodically stops working. Restarting Scrivener gets it going again, but this is not an ideal workaround.

search box for Preferences

Could we get a search box in Scrivener's Preferences? System Preferences has one and it's a big help. Scrivener has so many options it becomes burdensome to try to remember or find them (40+ separate panels by my count), not including Project Settings which are in a separate UI element....

Re: Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

note that I have only moved one project back, in contrast to the 15+ projects I used to have linked


you can probably move more - in the end I only had one project that crashes the whole sync - but unfortunately it’s an important one....

Dropbox for iOS doesn’t inspire confidence

My macbook is in the shop so i’ve been writing on my ipad only the last few days. A few observations: - in the files app, occasionally files on dropbox would simply not open without a restart - setting a folder as a favorite works fine with every provider I tried except dropbox, which fails to persi...

Re: Do you prefer Scrivener for iOS or Ulysses?

I’ve posted this before but I can’t find it offhand. Basically I use Ulysses for notes because of its sync and search (1.2 million words are no problem) and Scrivener for writing because Ulysses organizational features aren’t up to multiple rounds of revision. But i’m really getting sick of dealing ...

Re: Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

Well I followed the procedure that AmberV described above: Since there are mixed results being reported, what I’d suggest for anyone experience persistent crashing is to fully reset the sync environment: ⋅  In Scrivener’s project screen, tap Edit and then the gear button. ⋅  Sele...

Re: Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

11 projects, only 2 larger than 10 MB, should not tax the memory, storage or CPU of an iPhone 11 Pro Max with 30+ GB free disk space. I have been an enthusiastic defender of Lit & Lat's decision to require Dropbox to this point, but it's clear something is seriously broken now. I've had way more...

Re: Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

I had had no problems on my iphone or ipad until tonight - just got a new iphone 11 pro max to replace my 7 plus after the microphone stopped working... now Scrivener crashes every time it tries to sync on the new phone :(

Re: All Book Images Gone--Dropbox Symlink Problem?

yeah unless there’s a really good reason to keep the files external rather than just keeping them in the project, this seems like it’s adding unnecessary fragility

Re: Keep project on iPad with separate backup?

Or if you have an old laptop around, use iTunes to sync the files, which requires no internet access.
