Re: Corrupt .rtf file

The Update came through a few hours ago and not only did it fix my Start Button/Task Bar issue but it also unlocked the corrupted 391.rtf file so that I have now been able to recover all of it and revert back to my original version of the project. That's strange, but at least you where able to reco...

Re: page numbering

This isn't something you would see inside of Scrivener, but rather it is something handled by the Compile function when your ready to get export your file out Scrivener, either by pressing the Compile button or going to File>Compile... In the Compile menu, tab over to All Option and then go to Page ...

Re: Corrupt .rtf file

I would check if you have any previous backups before this issue started. That seems like the safest way to go about it. If you still want to try and repair the file, Word has a Open and Repair function. It might do what you are looking for. With Word opened go to File>Open then you pick Open and Re...

Re: Mark Twain on perseverance (sort of)

Yeah, I can't remember which one, but in one of his Autobiographies (it might have been Chapters from My Autobiography ) he wrote that he attempted suicide, but couldn't go through it. I can't find the quote now, but if from what I recall it ended with something along the lines of "though I hav...

Re: Best conservation strategies? Parks, arks, boycotts, protest

I think I totally missed the point of your post, though those are things I've done. Boycott is my favorite. Talk with your wallets. Maybe taking some sort of legal action. Don't want this forest mowed down for a new parking lot? Take it up with you local representatives and try to make it some sort ...

Re: Best conservation strategies? Parks, arks, boycotts, protest

I stopped buying BP gas after their oil lines busted. It was more of there mismanagement of the situation, both during and afterward than the actual "leak" was truly upsetting. I don't have any hard numbers but I'm sure they spent more money saying what they were going to do to fix it than...

Re: Yosemite

You can actually do that. It's not in an obvious place. You have to go into the general Keyboard System Preferences pane, under the "Shortcuts" tab. There will be a Mission Control section. Also, if you want a little more control over virtual desktops, TotalSpaces is pretty cool. Much bet...

Re: Yosemite

I still have yet to find any cases where I want Full Screen mode, ever. The thing that kills the Full Screen mode for me is that the standard Control + Number of the Screen doesn't work. Sure you can just swipe or some other ways to get around to it, but that doesn't work for me. Now that I say tha...

Re: Yosemite

Well, I'm still trying to get over the "natural scrolling" they switched every Mac too a couple of OSs ago. Granted it was an easy fix to get it back to normal. I'm more upset that they infer that my scrolling preference is "unnatural." If you are using a trackpad or a touchscre...

Re: Yosemite

They keep talking about taking lessons they learned from iPhone and iPad and moving them over to Mac OS. I've always thought the idea was to go the other way around, to get the handhelds up to the level of other desktops OSs (within reason, of course), not dumb desktop OSs down to handheld levels. I...

Re: Scrivener in Spanish

For user interfaces, we should be heading to a future that is purely icon based and which can be used independently of a written language. People can use iOS without reading a manual or an extensive language-based interface. All software across all platforms should head the same way so that any tra...

NSA specs?


It seems to be a problem with a Mobo, I found a solution on the Asus forums. When I say it doesn't shutdown fully, I mean it goes into some hybrid hibernate mode.

Re: Windows 8

I just built a machine and I have the EFI bios, I haven't ran into those problems. Other than I can't seem to shut down fully, no matter what I put the settings too, if I hit a button on the keyboard the computer restarts if in a powered down state (which is no fun with kids or cats around). I don't...
