Re: RFTD format for ScratchPad

Ah, that's too bad.

The only reason I do use the RTFD format is to enable the pasting of graphics from time to time. Using RTF format is ok most of the time.

What a bugger, with these cross-platform compatibility :)

RFTD format for ScratchPad

On the Mac, .rftd is a format that's available for ScratchPad notes. However, Scrivener for Windows does not recognize this format. It seems that RFTD is not a format fully supported natively in Windows. However, can there be a workaround of sorts where Scrivener Windows accesses the .rtf file withi...

Re: Is there documentation on the differences between the Scrivener 3 Windows and Mac versions?

Perhaps "workflow" differences might be too broad a term. I really meant in terms of its UI and how things are organized. To be honest, in all these years of dabbling with Scrivener (which is at a very basic level), I'm still using it to jot down ideas, connect notes and thoughts, and mind...

Re: Is there documentation on the differences between the Scrivener 3 Windows and Mac versions?

I second having this documentation whether fully fleshed out or informal and incomplete :) I have Scrivener on all 3 platforms (Mac, Windows, iO S) though I mostly use it on the Mac and iOS. I only bought the Windows/Mac bundle back in 2017 when my computer at work became a PC. I don’t use Scrivener...

I've not tested it extensively, but so far it seems to work ok.


Wow! I'm going to have to try this! Thanks for posting!

Re: iOS 14 and Scrivener

I took the risk and updated both my iPhone and iPad Pro. I can't say I have extensively used Scrivener iOS under iOS 14, but so far it seems to work. I haven't encountered glitches yet. When/If I do, I'll write back.

Re: iOS 14 and Scrivener

I ask because it's been a long time since Scrivener iOS has been updated.

iOS 14 and Scrivener

iOS 14 is slated to be released today. Any idea if it’ll break current Srivener iOS functionality?

Scratch Pad on Scrivener for iOS

Any possibility of adding the Scratch Pad feature for Scrivener on iOS? Someone recommended using Drafts to access the Scratch Pad folder (I have it in the cloud). A good workaround, perhaps, but it also seems a little silly to have a text editor for what is already a text editor (admittedly, beefed...

Re: Scratch Pad on iOS or alternative workaround?

Hmmm....as I think about it, it seems silly to have to get ANOTHER text editor just to use the Scratch Pad feature. It's like getting a text editor for my already text editor.

Scrivener on iOS itself should suffice. I'll see if I can submit this as a feature request for the next minor update.

Scratch Pad on iOS or alternative workaround?

Doesn't look like Scratch Pad is available on Scrivener iOS even though I am syncing the notes through Dropbox. What's an alternative method or I am just not seeing the functionality on Scrivener iOS?

Re: [JH] Bug: Scrivener issues "Scrivener is Not Responding."

I've had this bug since the first time I downloaded the beta version of Scrivener 3 which I think was 2 months ago (?). The latest version also has that bug. The way I recover from this is to have Wnidows close the program and usually reopening Scrivener solves that problem for that instance. It see...

Re: Import Word document

That would be helpful. I'm not sure how to add a bookmark. Edit: I think I just figured out how to use the bookmark feature. There's another problem though. I use Scrivener on both Mac and Windows. The Mac version is version 3, the Windows is the beta for version 3. Bookmarks made on Mac do not work...

Re: Import Word document

Alas, this is a problem because I have certain research materials in Word format which I do not want Scrivener to convert. I just want to use a folder in my Scrivener document to keep all my materials together.
