Re: Scrivener Preferences Can Be Saved and Loaded, But Project Settings Can't?

I wonder if some of the disconnect is that we're all focusing on templates, which help copy custom metadata fields to *new* projects, but is the OP trying to add them to existing projects? I think it's clear that yes, that's what he's trying to do. If the number of projects and/or fields involved i...

Re: Convert project to document bookmarks and back?

Do I really need to express once again that I am thankful for scrivener? OK, I am thankful for scrivener. If I wasn't I wouldn't have chosen it as my writing environment.

Re: Convert project to document bookmarks and back?

I have suggested a simple change to scrivener that would make it far easier to switch "bookmarks" from project to document and from document to project. Simple context menu item on mouse click on bookmark. That and to show both project and document bookmark lists in the same inspector scro...

Re: Scrivener Preferences Can Be Saved and Loaded, But Project Settings Can't?

Randall, This is not a solution. What am I dragging the list items into? Obviously, one would want to copy and past or drag and drop or in some other way import document settings from one project into another project Please read the instructions again, particularly the section in bold below: You ca...

Katherine, lunk, I'm afraid that just because you don't see the need for tagging specific words or sentences, it doesn't mean it's not a genuine requirement by some. It doesn't go all the way that the original requester has suggested (like being sortable, for instance), but one thing I'd like to se...

Re: "Bookmarks" should be renamed "Resources"

Thanks to all who have braved the strange Scrivener bulldog league to argue for obvious and rational improvements to Scrivener.

Re: Corrupted Project Won't Open Warning

If it is true that the document "binder.scrivproj" is only present in older formats of scrivener project packages… what has replaced that document in more recent formats of scrivener project packages?

Re: Corrupted Project Won't Open Warning

Like the text says: files of an older format should have a binder.scrivproj file, not your new project. That is not what the text in the dialog says. Not at all. It makes no claim that "binder.scrivproj" is a document that is only present in older versions of scrivener projects. Randall L...

Re: Corrupted Project Won't Open Warning

When that option is enabled, iCloud will store older files -- which in this case would be most of the project -- on its server, downloading them to the local machine only as needed. Since Scrivener expects all files to be immediately available, this option is almost guaranteed to cause problems. Re...

Re: Convert project to document bookmarks and back?

If scrivener displayed both project and document bookmarks in labeled lists (project bookmarks on top, document bookmarks below), one could simply drag and drop bookmarks into the appropriate list. Its screwy that one has to see one or the other type of bookmark list and not both at once. But baring...

Re: Zoom (command> and command<) not working in cork-board view.

Back to the original issue, that of easily and intuitively zooming a view… does scrivener support touch pad gestures? On a Mac, the fore finger and thumb pinch and un-pinch gestures have come to universally expect zoom control. Just tested: Cork board view doesn't support pinch multitouch zoom, but ...
