Re: beta 19 - save project location

I could be wrong here, because I always save projects in the same place, but I think that Scrivener remembers where you save a project and then uses that location as the default until you change it. And then remembers the new location as the default until you change it again. If you choose "Sav...

Re: iOS image to Windows

It is most likely a version of the problem Apple introduced with their new file format. See here: https://www.theverge.com/2017/9/19/1633 ... age-format

I have had it with getting photos into Wordpress.

Re: Argument for abandoning Mac and PC development

I have one problem with this argument: it seems to have been proposed from within the Apple ecosystem, where it might make perfect sense. I use iPad Scrivener a lot: almost every day in fact. I do not need a laptop, because I have an iPad and a magic keyboard for when I need it. However, I DO also u...

Re: Is there an easy way in Scrivener to convert a story

You currently have a "short story". This consists of words arranged in paragraphs. It may also include headings which, if it became a "novel", would become the titles of chapters. Scrivener allows you to make a selection and then split the document in two at that point. What was ...

Re: Scrivener 3 for iOS & Scrivener for Windows version questions

I think you are somehow confused. The iPad version of Scrivener has been available for a long time. It has no new version on the way, or at least nothing has been announced about a new version. The iPad app does not cost $44, and therefore the screenshot that you show seems to be referring to the Ma...

Re: Scrivener 3 for Windows launch date?

Vaporware? That is quite simply a very silly thing to assert. I have been using the beta version since sometime last year. I literally use it every day for two web projects. It works perfectly for me. I don’t need complex compiling, and I believe some areas there and elsewhere are still being worked...

Re: Anyone tried CloudMounter? (or similar?)

FWIW I think that you / we do not need to fear that the Dropbox client itself is suddenly going to greatly increase the amount of resources that it uses on your computer. The main new features on offer are "smart sync" which enables you to store some files and folders ONLY on the Dropbox s...

Re: Considering iOS for Scriv. How do YOU use it?

I have Scrivener on my iPad Air 2 and Windows 10 (beta 3). I use it in more or less the same way as @Silverdragon appears to. I use it Scrivener to keep two websites going, and on one of them I post daily. I write much of this into my iPad. I also write academic papers and stories. These get´mainly ...

Re: iCloud Sync

Dropbox keeps getting worse . More memory usage in the desktop app. Higher prices for less storage. Scrivener is still the sole reason I’m tied to Dropbox. It’s a bummer. In my experience Dropbox does not ”keep getting worse”. In nobody’s experience is Dropbox offering ”higher prices for less stora...

Re: What does iOS 13 mean for Scrivener iOS and iCloud Sync?

If you think this discussion is irrelevant or useless then why are you posting replies? I’d think you’d just not participate.

Re: Can Scrivener 2 on Windows open a Scrivener 3 file from MacOS?

There is no Scrivener 2 for Windows. There is 1.9.something and there is the beta 3 (which IS numbered as 2.9.something). The beta version should do what you want and it is almost ready for prime time. I have been using the Windows beta version and the iOS app for almost a year now with no problems ...

Re: New to writing software

It all depends who the "others" are, which is difficult to discern from your post. If they are editors who will directly collaborate / overrule you then Scrivener may not be the best choice ofsoftware for you. StarDog2 is completely correct about this. On the other hand, if they are peers ...

Re: Several minor bugs in Beta 16

Here is another small bug that I think I have found. Alternatively something has changed since I last did this.
