Scrivener Unexpectedly Quit

Hi, I just re-installed Scrivener a few weeks after getting a fresh install of Yosemite (10.10.3) on my Macbook Pro. However, I haven't been able to start the program. Every time I do, it immediately quits and I get the error message "Scrivener has quit unexpectedly." I don't see anything ...

Spell check weirdness

So, at some point yesterday, spell check stopped working in Scrivener. It won't underline anything as I type. All the options are enabled in preferences, and yet I can type anything and it won't get underlined. I'm not sure what happened with Scrivener. I tried quitting and restarting, logging out a...

Stop auto-capitalize after certain combinations?

I'm writing a dissertation and often have phrases that have an abbreviation followed by a word that should not be capitalized (for example, U.S. citizens). Scrivener currently autocorrects this. Is there a way to tell the program to ignore capitalization problems after certain words? I don't want to...

Re: Scrivener 2.0 - Coming Soon (No, Really)

I have 2.0, too! Woohoo! But when I click on the link to buy, it takes me to the esellerate page, but I can't go anywhere beyond selecting currency.

Scrivener becomes non-responsive then crashes

I was using Scrivener and closed a project. It started to the auto-backup and then crashed. I sent the Scrivener crash report and then opened up another project file. I then clicked on a folder I had created within that project called "Scraps" and Scrivener became non-responsive for a coup...

Backing up to .zip file?

When I close one of my Scrivener projects in the NaNoWriMo edition, it backs it up to a .zip file somewhere. Why is it doing this, and can I make it stop?

Scrivener 2 Preview (unabashed praise thread)

I think I'm in love. It's beautiful. And to think that it's "only" a preview edition. :D

Thanks so much, Literature and Latte team, for putting so many hours and so much work into this.

Re: Typographer's Quotes

Thanks! I also realized not long after posting that it's very easy to fix in Nisus Writer Pro, too, but this is just as easy and lets me fix it all before I export the draft.

Typographer's Quotes

Okay, so I know how to turn on Typographer's quotes but right now my draft has some typographer's quotes and some curly quotes, probably a product of cutting and pasting in and out of Nisus Writer and shifting around in Scrivener. I need them all to be curly quotes. Is there an easy way to do a find...

Scrivener in the Cloud

I hope the title of this post isn't misleading, but I was wondering what the best way to use Scrivener is if I want to have a project file that is shared between two computers, so that it is always the same no matter which computer I access it from (i.e. if I save it on one computer, go to the next,...

Drag and drop into folders in note card view

I'm sure somebody has asked about this before but my search didn't turn it up, so I thought I'd add a pony request for a future version. I'm working on my dissertation and I have a large number of (virtual) note cards that I'm currently sorting into folders. Right now, if I want to move a note card ...
