Append date AND TIME to saved project name?

Is there a way to do this automatically? I see that backups can be saved with date appended to name, but this doesn't seem to apply to regular saves and doesn't seem to append time with date. Am I missing something?

Thanks, Randall Lee Reetz

missing projects after upgrade

After latest upgrade (several days ago), projects are missing, dropbox sync not working… scared out of my mind.

Re: Bookmarks / Matching Text ???

My questions about "Matching Text" in list form: 1. What is it? What problem was it designed to solve? 2. How does it work under the hood (algorithm, procedure, method)? 3. How do I set it up? 4. What does it spit out? 5. How do I work with the results? 6. What are its known limitations? 7...

Re: Bookmarks / Matching Text ???

Did I read manual? Yes. Doesn't do a very good job of explaining. I read, twice, talked to a scrivener course teacher, attempted to use on docs in my project… and THEN posted my questions here.

Bookmarks / Matching Text ???

Wow, what is this, how does it work under the hood (algorithm, procedure, method), how do I set it up, what does it spit out, how do I work with the results, what are its known limitations, what doesn't it do, etc.? Is there a way to automate the construction of an index from the Matching Text funct...

Re: Search, Sort, and Navigate to Documents by Date Last Modified

OK, that works. Not exactly easy and intuitive to set up. This is such a valuable and common every min of every day need while writing that there should be a baked in means of viewing the binder by last modified or created. For anyone interested, here is the recipe for bringing up a navigatable chro...

Spinning beach ball cursor

Am frequently experiencing scrivener freezing up with spinning beach ball cursor? Nothing unusual about my project. Not large.

Table not supported?

Scrivener crashed this evening when trying to insert and edit a table. On second try, table wouldn't allow me to click into a cell to add text. Tried using arrow keys but that caused scrivener to crash. This is not confidence building.

Re: Edit-History Navigation

Here are two ways that I think get you what you want using current functionality: 1) If the relevant binder hierarchy is exploded out (i.e. no collapsed folders), then selecting everything there will make the Outline view (duly sorted) do what you want. Each item (doc or folder) will be flat-listed...

Search, Sort, and Navigate to Documents by Date Last Modified

In my crusade to find a simple and fast way to navigate directly to the places in my projects that I last created and modified, I have found that I can initiate a "mdate:>YYYY-MM-DD" search in the search field above the binder/collections column of the scrivener window. I can then save tha...

Edit-History Navigation

I’d like to be able to see a list (with date) of the docs I’ve last edited, and when clicking on an item in this list, be taken to that doc, and the cursor inserted at the last location of the last edit. This is sort of possible in the outline view by adding the “last modified” column and sorting by...
