Re: OK to update Scrivener version on legacy MacBook Pro with High Sierra?

I run the newest Scrivener on Sierra so you should be fine with HS. Just use the Check for Updates menu item.

Re: Smart Annotations (like in Pages)

Hi You won’t be able to see the smart annotations in Scrivener - you’ll need do a round of edits in Pages, then copy the edited text back. It adds a bit of manual work but it’s worth it to me. By the time I get to this kind of editing, my organisational structure is usually set, so I can do a docume...

Re: Scrivener as QDA software

I’ve posted on this in another thread earlier - basically you’re not going to get paragraph-level coding in Scrivener like you can in MaxQDA or NVivo etc.

Re: Scrivener & Mendeley

Since Elsevier bought Mendeley, I don't think one can expect them to integrate with anything beyond Word, unfortunately. The big journal publishers have little incentive to innovate. I think the best option is for Scrivener to integrate citeproc as described in this thread: https://www.literatureand...

Re: Changing color of all annotations in an existing project?

Is it still the case that there is no way to change the colour of all inline annotations in a project at once?

Re: I Just Had a Stroke of Genius

I'm not sure about Scrivener for Windows but you can already set a background image in Scrivener for Mac Composition Mode, under Project > Project Settings > Background Images . You can't adjust transparency as far as I can tell.

Re: bewildered with choices

A mess? That's a bit out of order. Tonnes of work went into organising them for Scrivener 3 Yes, I'll concede that was a bit flip. The situation is much improved from v 2, and the elegance of Scrivener for iOS is even better. Still there are aspects of the preferences which seem quite arbitrary. e....

Styles don’t appear in compiled RTF or DOCX

If I compile in Scrivener for Mac to DOCX, I can open the resulting file in Word or Pages and all of my styled headings, block quotes etc. will appear as styled text. If I compile in Scrivener for IOS to DOCX, when I open the resulting file in Word or Pages, all of my styled headings, block quotes e...

Re: Can;t, Won;t and Don;t not recognized as being misspelled by spell checker or with a red underline

Do other Windows apps catch these? What about wouldn;t ? Could it be that it thinks (rightly ) that can won and don are words?
