Login issue

Just upgraded to RC 12 and had a problem starting up. The startup image appeared on screen 2, while the box to check ok to the notice that it expires on Dec 31 2020 appeared under some windows on screen 1. I didn't figure it out for a few seconds and thought perhaps the program had crashed! Yikes. N...

Re: Extra syncs. Every time I open the project.

Solved. I probably should have done what Andrew Harvey suggested, but I'm lazy. Using Lunk and Katherine's advice, I turned off sync and restarted. Then re-enabled syncing only draft and restarted, Since there is no need to sync anything really, except a few articles to be published this month. This...

Re: Extra syncs. Every time I open the project.

Are you sure that the documents *really* haven't changed? On either side? For instance, if Pro Writing Aid automatically reviews the documents in that folder, and sets a flag to tell itself that it did so, Scrivener would probably see that flag as a "change" requiring a new sync. Katherin...

Re: Extra syncs. Every time I open the project.

Are you positive that it is a bug with Scrivener and not with Dropbox, the permissions on the Dropbox folder, or just that project? With Scrivener closed, move the project out of the Dropbox folder onto your local hard drive and make sure Dropbox syncs the removal everywhere. Open the project from ...

Extra syncs. Every time I open the project.

I save locally. I work alone. I use the sync function so edits I do with ProWriting aid get synced back to scrivener without allowing ProWriting aid to write directly to the Scrivener files. Every time I open scrivener for the last month or two, it has synced and "updated" a folder. The up...

Re: [LH4757] RC4 - Scrivener HTML clipboard not recognized in Chromium-based browsers. Plain text only.

Just for another point of view. I post into my content management system articles each month and have done so for many years. It never even occurred to me to paste and expect the results to be right! But I'm old. I export to text and then format everything and set all links in that system.

Background in compile to html

I'm trying to compile an article to html. Since I have it as I want it, I made a template for just do what is on the page.

I've set my background default as a tan color which is less jarring than white. The new html page comes out white. How to I set the background to be tan. I can't figure it out.

Re: Save Error

I I tried to look through back-up to see if I could restore it that way, but either I messed those up (as they're basically identical to what I opened today) or something else is going on, because it was missing there, too. . How do you backup? What do you call a backup? Here is a picture of my Scr...

Re: beta will expire 10 october?

It is always prudent, regardless of being in Beta or updating, to make a backup of your settings. Under options there is a save options to a file choice and you can then load options from a file.

Changes to Insert image linked to a file

I like some of the changes in RC 10 to the insert image linked to a file. I like being able to see the name and place and also jump immediately to the file. One change is irritating though. You lost the reset option and I have to enter the numbers by hand. I keep my images in a separate folder and l...

Re: Backup fails for sign out

When signing out, Scrivener presents the following screen: "Scrivener is set to back up on project close but the backup could not be created. This could be because the backup location is inaccessible or there is insufficient space. Automatic backup preferences can be adjusted in Options or Pro...

Re: Drag & drop between index cards in Corkboard

I drag and drop on the clipboard all the time. Not sure what you are having trouble with. By rearranging in a subgroup I assume he means that if a sub-folder has say, 8 sub-items, Viewing that subfolder in corkboard view enables you to drag the sub-items around. Are you saying that if you have 4 ite...

Re: Clarification on beta installation

Thank you for this clear and useful info. I'm wondering, what happens if the beta expires before I get a chance to update. Will I still be able to get into it to do an auto update? What exactly happens when the beta expires? tks I suggest saving your options file (File/Options/) then the manage but...
