Re: How could I make Scrivener automatically make back ups at a special period?

If you use the software in ways that it was not designed for and not optimized for OK, didn't know I was using it like that, what ways are these? If making backups takes such a long time, how large are your projects? Are you backing up to a local drive, or to slower media like a USB stick? 250 MB, ...

Re: How could I make Scrivener automatically make back ups at a special period?

No no, actually it does not imply that, I would think. I leave the projects open all the time because, among other things, when I have ideas I immediately must / want to write them down. And making back ups takes quite a long time, so when I want to close Scrivener / the projects I want them to be c...

Yes, the same method like in the normal view, but it does not work with the search results here.

Re: How could one automatically split a document / folder in certain places?

Yes, that is true of course. Suppose I want to add a paragraph in the middle of a document and I want the paragraph to be in a single document. What is the best / fastest method to achieve that? I first would add the new pargraph to the place I want to have it between the two text parts, then just s...

Re: How could one automatically split a document / folder in certain places?

Thank you! You can automatically split text as you import it with the Import and Split command. See page 98 of the manual. So I could copy the text to e.g. an Open Office Document, add "#" to each place I want Scrivener do the splitting and import it to Scrivener automatically doing the sp...

How could one automatically split a document / folder in certain places?

How could one automatically split a document / folder in certain places in a single step (not one by one)? E.g. I want to split a doc Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consetetur sadipscing elitr, sed diam nonumy eirmod tempor invidunt ut labore et dolore magna aliquyam erat, sed diam voluptua. At vero eo...

Re: I cannot open anymore a folder containing 367 elements in the binder

Hello Jim, Actually I do not really know if it is a crash. But as Scrivener does not work, I do not have access to that folder and Scrivener just closes, I assume it is. Thank you for the link. Yes, but I assume before the bug will be fixed (in a new version), if at all, it will take a very long tim...

Re: How can one open more than one project with a single click or two?

Ah, sorry, indeed, "Exit" closes all instances / projects, never had used it beofore, never would have thought it would do that. And yes, after all of the projects start again. Great.

Many thanks!
