Re: Is Scrivener for PC worth it?

Honest to Pete, am I the only one? I'm a writer. Even if my writing were a hobby, which it isn't, I spend money as necessary to enjoy my hobbies, and for something that brings in needed income, you bet I spend money to make it better or easier. I don't consider myself profligate either. Vellum, Trac...

Re: Scrivener for Windows

I gave up on the beta early on because installing and uninstalling every month was more than I wanted to do. Admittedly I'm not one of those wild for version 3 to start with. My Scrivener use is basic enough the new features don't make much difference. In fact I don't like the Inspector changes or t...

Re: Formatting the first letter of a new chapter

Well, if your book is complicated enough to need a 1,500-pound layout, it may not be the kind of thing Vellum excels at, which is fiction. Some people do use it for non-fiction, but I think happiness there is less certain. From memory the price runs about $200 or maybe as much as $250 if you want th...

Re: Formatting the first letter of a new chapter

If you can afford it, get it. It's wonderful and takes all the finagling out of getting your manuscript ready to publish.

Re: Setting up the writing area

I'm only posting because no one else has answered so far. I didn't go so far as to look at Kindle Create. If you just want not to see the Binder on the left and Inspector on the right, you can do that under the View menu. That leaves you with the menus and button bars at the top. If you want a reall...

Re: Toolbar Icons Titles

Put your mouse cursor over the icon, and the title pops up. Not exactly what you want, but lets you see what the icon does pretty easily.

Re: Is Scrivener NICER on Mac?

I have both and for my use don't see any difference. My guess is you have to use more advanced features than I do to notice the difference. I use Scriv for fiction. Also, I don't care about the ins and outs of Compile. All I need is to get my work out of Scriv when it's approaching finished - rtf, W...

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 ...
