Re: Scrivener vs Word Anvil

He wasn't suggesting you should eat anything. Nor was he waving red flags. Exactly. I have no problem having a genuine conversation based on personally held perspectives in order to understand the ways and reasons why a particular person finds value in something else. And that's because the values w...

Re: Is Scrivener for PC worth it?

I thought you promised not to debate/respond? Oh no he didn't! He actually said: And to anyone reading this, please note that my response to this thread is not an invitation to debate. I have my reasons for doing and not doing whatever I please, just as any of you. So if anyone has an issue with my...

Re: Evernote replacements

@silverdragon I will just add that Joplin doesn’t impose order on you. You don’t need to make notebooks at all. You can keep all your stuff in the default Inbox if you want, and you don’t need any tags. Two of the current complaints about Joplin are: 1. All search is global. They is no ”search by no...

Re: Evernote replacements

Arriving late to the discussion... I had a paid account with Evernote for years and left about six months ago. I switched to Joplin which is free, open source, and developing at a lively rate. It has apps for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android. It also has a web clipper that (for my needs at leas...

Re: Scrivener for Windows

Re: Scrivener for Windows

I cannot usually be bothered to reply to these threads: primarily because I have been happily using the free beta for two years now on a literally daily basis and I cannot see what the fuss is about. The beat version is there to use and will continue to be there to use until it is finally released a...

Re: Help me recover?

If your backup is a zip file then you will need to unzip it before Scrivener can use it. On Windows, when you unzip it you will find a folder. Inside that you will find a file ending .scrivx and two folders (Files and Settings). You need to double click on the file ending .scrivx to start the project.

Re: Using Scrivener with Google Drive

I may be answering a different question to the one that you are asking here, and if so my apologies. If you install the Dropbox desktop app (which you should) then Dropbox stores a local copy on every computer or tablet you use, and then syncs these to a copy that it stores on its servers. So you wi...

Beta 12: composition mode discrepancy [Bug?]

I have been using composition mode a lot recently and I have noticed a disturbing bug (or I have failed to find a setting!). If I open a document and then open composition mode I can see the text and it has reasonable margins on both left and right. It works just as I would expect. If I click on a f...

Beta 12: convert to default formatting

I have my set my default formatting to include a Line & Paragraph Spacing of 17.5pt which makes the text nicely readable. I have set this to be a universal default format (ie not specific to a particular document). I have just noticed that when I attempted to convert some writing in a new projec...

Re: Time to give us an update for Scrivener 3 launch window ?

Just to agree with @JJSlote and @TwoLane. I have been using the beta for a couple of years now, and I don't feel any need to justify either its existence, its current state, or my use of it. For me (doing what I do, which may not be what you do) it just works - and has done for the last eighteen mon...

Re: [RC12] Help > Scrivener Manual hangs the program

Just for information, and in case the information helps, I have Sumatra PDF as my default pdf reader. On Windows 10 I had no trouble opening the manual or the list of placeholders. They opened and closed without affecting Scrivener at all.

Re: Anyone using Scrivener 3 for a 'live' project?

I have also been using the beta version exclusively for all my work- in my case since July 25 2018. I have been writing my daily website in it, as well as writing academic papers and the outline for a book. I have only ever had one problem, and I cannot honestly remember what it was. It was in Septe...

Re: No desktop & no laptop

Yes there is Katherine. The first bullet point says ”Edit on your Mac or Windows machine, and wait for the changes to be synced by the Dropbox desktop client. ”. The point here is not that these instructions won’t work for Fizz, rather they contain more information than s/he needs. If you only have ...
