Re: Big Sur is coming closer ...

I first got a MacBook Pro only a couple of years ago (new but older model) and had to update to Sierra to run Scriv 3. One thing that kind of surprises me about Mac users is how so many update the operating system annually. Can someone tell me why they bother? I have a desktop running Windows 7 now....

Re: Chapters with scenes on binder - not consistent

Since you don't have answers yet, let me try one. Look at your Binder carefully. If for the chapters that bring up all the scenes when you click on them, the scenes are slightly indented under the chapter but for the chapters that only bring up a blank page the scenes below are not indented, that's ...

Re: import and split

I doubt you're doing anything wrong. In your shoes, I'd try splitting that big file into say 4 smaller ones and see if they import. If it's just the size of the Word file, that should work. If there's something in the file that's causing trouble, you'll at least have a start on narrowing down where ...

Re: Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

I only opened one of those links. It's "Why Scrivener sucks for writing your novel" brought to you by the people trying to sell you something called Novelize, which I never heard of before. The anti-Scrivener screed has nothing to do with Scriv 3 for Windows not being released fast enough ...

Re: My file naming convention

I use colored Labels for POV, but change icons in the Binder when a particular scene/chapter is finished finished. Right now I'm using stars. I have used Status, but since it doesn't show in the Binder, only down at the bottom of the Inspector where I don't seem to look often, the Binder icons are m...

Re: Easier Tutorial??

The thing about the tutorial, at least for me, is that you shouldn't beat your head over anything that's irrelevant to you at the time. You hit a section on something you don't need or want to know? Skip it. When the day comes you do want to know that thing, you can go back and pick it up. The main ...

Re: Free trial stopped to work (after several hours)

Is there any chance what you downloaded was not the free trial but the beta version of Scrivener 3 that expired on August 15? If you did that, worked with it the day before it expired, and only just tried to open your project again, you'd get a message you might interpret as a free trial being over....

Projects in Tabs

In my Mac version, I could have two projects open as tabs in one window, not as separate windows. Admittedly I forget how I did this, but can it be done in the current Windows beta? If not, will it be possible eventually or is this something that can't be done in Windows?

Re: Back to Windows

Thanks for that. I saw somewhere in this forum advice that one needed to uninstall and then install so that's what I planned to do, but I just tried it your way, and it worked fine.

Back to Windows

As I posted in the Mac feedback threads, after several years of using Scrivener 3 on a MacBook Pro, I'm back to Windows because of my absolutely self-indulgent purchase of a 2020 LG Gram with 17" screen - which weighs less than 3 pounds. I really debated with myself whether to put the current v...

Back to the Other Side

Although I used Windows all my life and had no desire to do anything on a Mac, right after Scriv 3 for Mac was released, I got a used 15" MacBook Pro. I never loved the system, but I did love the retina screen. So much so that I started using the MBP more and more. It made the screen on my olde...

Re: Switching between Mac and PC

Download and install the latest beta version of Scrivener for Windows. It's compatible with the Mac version and it works well. A lot of people are using it exclusively now.

Re: Online Version (?)

Even though online software is a no-go for me, I took a look at Dabble out of curiosity. Which made me wonder - are there no laws about plagiarism or copyright violation for software? It sure looks like an imitation Scriv.

Re: Windows -> Mac -> Vellum

I use Vellum, but do it by Scrivener to Word then go through that document to make sure it conforms to what works best for a Vellum import. Since I never actually use Word for anything if I can help it, I've never worried about styles at all - just make sure I have chapter headings centered and bold...

Re: Malcolm Gladwell Technique

I write fiction, but it seems the same would apply. I'd keep a master copy of what you have, make a new copy as the Scriv project for one of the books you want to extract from the master, and start deleting anything extraneous to that from what will become the Scriv project for that one book. Once e...
