Re: When does a Scrivener project get too big?

My largest project at this point still only takes 0.13GB of space (not very big, I don't think). When I open it I do actually have to wait for the initial backup. Not long, but enough that I notice it. It is currently my only project where I've even noticed it takes a moment. Are you seeing any slow...

Preset Styles versus Compile

My System: Win 10 64-bit, Scrivener 1.9.15.0. I'm using the Novel format template (if that's relevant). My problem: One character in my novel uses a device to gesture/write what he wants to say. My writing group agrees it should be different than the "regular" dialogue, but no one likes t...

Re: unable to verify your activation for more then tIwo months

ETA: Found my license and entered it and I'm all set! I'm not sure if this is the same issue. I was just prompted to update for a critical fix. Now, when I (try to) open Scrivener (v1, to be clear), I get this: Scriv1 upgrade - won't start.PNG I've restarted my PC. I checked my pinned applications ...

Same comment in many places?

I'm editing a manuscript and I have an issue I need to resolve, which is repeated throughout the manuscript. I'm currently making a new comment for each instance I come across. My questions: Is there a reason I should not make a new comment (which says the exact same thing)? Or, alternatively, is th...

Thank you for sharing this! I'm going to give the beta a try. (With backups from v1, of course.

Compiler question: multiple fonts?

I have some sections in my current project, where I use an alternate font to indicate dreams or journal entries. Currently, when I compile, I have to go into the ODT file (my preferred editor outside of Scrivener is Open Office) and find all the sections which should be in the alternate font, and fi...

Re: Scrivener V3 for Windows release date

As sad as I was that the last release date didn't happen, as an ex-techy married to a lifetime-techy, I get the challenges the developers at L&L are facing. Kudos to the entire team for all the hard work AND their dedication to putting out a product they can be proud of. I'm guessing (from my ow...

Re: Change Font Colors for Index Card/Corkboard?

I'm chiming in late because I have changed the text color (I thought) to white, so I could have a darker background (easier on the eyes). I'm trying to change it again and can't figure out how I did it the first time. Argh! Perhaps the text color auto-changes between black and white? *shrugs* Am I r...

Re: What is this menu -- and how do I get it to stop popping up?

You’ve activated "script mode". I’m a Mac user and don’t use script mode, but something tells me the shortcut on Windows might be Ctrl-8. Just knowing what it was enabled me to search the manual for more help. And YES, this fixed it! Thank you so much! Also, the shortcut according to my m...

What is this menu -- and how do I get it to stop popping up?

Hello all, I honestly have no idea what to call this annoying little menu which keeps popping up in my editor: [img] What%20is%20this..PNG [/img] Maybe this is related (?) to the font repeatedly reverting to Arial (not my default, I don't think!) whenever I hit "Enter" for a new paragraph....

Re: New writing font for monospace lovers...

Hah! Cat-vacuuming is quite an old term now -- I think I first came across on the old Usenet group misc.writing in the 90s but it's probably a lot older than that. You know, I recently went hunting for the source of this term. I first heard it as "vacuuming the cat", but that search only ...

Re: "Series Bible" in a different project than the novels in a series?

I'm chiming in a little late, but I wanted to thank those who shared their methodology before me. I am (right now) working on moving over my series bible to its own Scrivener project. One of my reasons matches with those who use Ever/OneNote - two separate windows to move between. I have 2 24" ...

Re: Making a timeline

Jenny,

I would like to be able to do this as well. It's one reason I still use draw.io, despite it being a bit of overkill for my needs (and a huge memory hog!).

Default "project" on open?

Greetings, I'm new-ish to Scapple and I cannot find a way to do what I want to do. When I open Scapple, it opens an empty Scapple document. But I'd like it to open one of my three current Scapple docs. (I'd also like to put those three docs on my taskbar for a quick open option, but I can't figure t...
