Re: About note cards

You can keep the Inspector pane open and still use notecards as in this layout: https://www.michaelobryan.com/wp-content/uploads/2017-08-10_23-55-07.jpg Or you can use the Outliner mode when making changes. The Synopsis in the Outliner will be the same one you see on your notecards. https://www.mich...

Re: quick keys not working for audio control using external keyboard

You may need to access the keyboard software and either make changes there or investigate the keyboard-shortcuts for each command.

Re: Scrivener crashes and will not restart

I experienced "freezing" and stalls after installing the most recent Windows 10 update and am still having performance problems with the software suddenly sucking RAM at two and three times previous rates. Navigating the Microsoft Technical Support website is maddening. What may be happeni...

Re: Extreme tab distance

Could it be that you are seeing it set to indent the first sentence of each paragraph and if you wish to set the tab positions you will need to right-mouse-click and then select "Add Left Tab." You can also set the indent styles this way as well. https://www.michaelobryan.com/wp-content/up...

Re: How do I set font and format defaults?

As I have used it, the ability to "Covert to Default Text Style" allows you to convert text in your documents to the default choice you made when setting Scrivener's options. In Windows you will need to select Documents from the file menu to access the command. Documents >>Convert>>Formatt...

Re: HUGE Kudos to the Scrivener Team!

The Windows Team has my sincere gratitude and I cannot wait to use some of the features I have seen my iOS brothers and sisters taking advantage of since I was introduced to the most powerful writing program in the history of mankind! (Just think of how early citizens of Rome or Greece must have suf...

Great Enhancement...

Or we could do a Windows update and then gradually get around to one for Apple-ies.

Re: Academic papers...

There are also ways to access EndNote and indicate the need for a citation and include citations.

Check the manual for instructions. (You can find it in the Help menu in the software.)

Re: Create a document template?

Biff:

Search internet and/or Google+ for "Scrivener Templates" and you can see some in action.

Writing Tools - QuoteDictionary.com?

A minor bug in Windows 1.9.6 in Writing Tools. The option to "Look up in QuotesDictionary.com" opens a window in dictionary.com instead.

Is there a way I can change these tools myself to use the sites I prefer or is that something that requires an update/coding/etc.?

Re: I love Scrivener - but I'm too scared to use it

I have even uninstalled Scrivener on all my devices and tried to re-install it on my Mac so I can use the original version without the complications from the iOS version. No deal! The Mac remembers all the settings I made to the original to accommodate Dropbox (ick) and the iPad. I want to complete...

Re: I love Scrivener - but I'm too scared to use it

I have been using the Windows version for three or four years now and since I started with Scrivener I save all of my writing projects to sub-folders within my main Dropbox folder and I have never had a single issue. I have never, ever "lost" any files and the only instances of "corru...

Re: Layout Mgr. & Index Card View Changes
