Re: Keep imported word file as .doc or .docx

I agree. I tried to do this using "File:Import:Research Files as Aliases..." but it would not let me choose a Word file at all.

Re: Activation issue attempting to use both Version 2 and Version 3

This worked for me.

I don't know about custom settings, but all my recent documents are still there, unchanged.

Re: Great new version

I can only agree with the previous posters. I have not started moving old files over to v3. I am working through the tutorial first. I am very impressed with the attention to detail in the interface. You have obviously thought very carefully about how people use the program and worked very hard to m...

Activation every time

Has anyone else run into this: I have both Scriv 2 and Scriv 3 on my Mac (and I need to use both for the time being). - When I first opened Scriv 3, the eSellerate engine asked me to activate, and that worked. - I then opened Scriv 2 and eSellerate asked me to activate. That worked. Now: - If I have...

Re: Forum software changes (I don't know where to put this)

Well, I feel dumb.

You know what the problem is: I did not notice the links because they are an almost invisible dark brown on darker brown, and somehow I did not mouse over them.

Thanks

Forum software changes (I don't know where to put this)

Argghh.! You have taken away the "New Posts" link from the top of the forum pages. I cannot function without it. The "Unread Posts" in the hamburger menu is not the same thing! There will always be hundreds of posts I have not read. What I want to see every morning is what is new...

Re: Can one make a link in the Binder to another item in the binder?

I believe that what Biff is asking for is what DevonThink calls "replicants", which is one document that appears in multiple places. If you change one you change all, since it is the same content. (That sounds like an alias to me, but DT calls them replicants.)

Re: Comments and/or Footnotes at Bottom of Page

Just another note. I see that the two previous posters are both on Windows. I am on Mac.

I hope the compile settings offer the same possibilities in the Windows version of Scriv (but I can't check).

Re: Comments and/or Footnotes at Bottom of Page

I don't know if this helps what you want to do, but I have a manuscript where I want some notes to appear at the bottom of their page and others as endnotes. Essentially I want substantive footnotes to appear on the page where the reader can see them, while simple references will appear as endnote, ...

Re: Draft Board or Scrapbook

How about putting the removed text into a comment? Then it would appear in the inspector pane when you were viewing the main text, with a visual indicator for each chunk removed.

Re: Thank you so much!

I can only send my congratulations, too. One less excuse for not writing. :)

And I agree, the small size of the Scrivener app is amazing. I am used to watching the little circle fill up very slowly, and this just zipped around.

My best to Keith and the whole team.

Re: Working with a large number of image files in Scrivener

I faced exactly the same problem. I have four large Scriv files (from 1.7 to 3.8 GB each) of a combination of jpg and pdf copies of historical documents, either jpegs taken with a digital camera or PDFs produced by a microfilm scanner. Originally I had my manuscript and my reference materials all in...
