Documents > Convert > Text to Default Formatting, pasted text background color

Copying and pasting from a web page THEN doing Documents > Convert > Text to Default Formatting, the background color of the text does not match my Scrivener > Preferences > Appearance, Main Editor, Colors setting. I think this should be an option checkbox in the "Text to Default Formatting&quo...

Re: Sync to External Folder on iOS (older)

AndrOpen Office on Chromebook is doing the job for me with Dropbox and RTFs created in Scrivener (on my Mac) via the Sync with Shared Folder option.

Re: Sync to Chromebook Using Sync to External Folder - Advice?

I use AndrOpen Office on Chromebook with Dropbox to access RTFs created by Scrivener on my Mac via the Sync to External Folder action. It is 100% functional and, rather than using plain text, the RTFs retain my markup between Scrivener (on the Mac) and AndrOpen Office (on the Chromebook).

Re: External Folder in Dropbox and Scrivener --

For those looking for a Chromebook solution, here are a couple of notes. 1) Running Scrivener on a Chromebook has been addressed elsewhere. 2) Running Scrivener on a Mac but doing some editing on Chromebook *IS* a viable solution. 3) You'll want to use Scrivener's File -> Sync -> with External Folde...

"Arrange by label." Tooltip does not change when Custom Title (for Label) changed

The tooltip for "Arrange by label." (bottom-right corner of screen) still says "label." after the Custom Title for Label has been changed. (It *does* change in the drop-down menus. It's only the tooltip that is not updated.) To replicate the problem: 1) Create a new project 2) At...

Re: New Project default directory in Preferences

I think this issue is resolved. No Scrivener changes required. (This user just needed an education on Mac OS X. :oops: )

Re: New Project default directory in Preferences

I found another "standard Mac OS" solution -- so this is NOT needed in Scrivener. Here are the steps to add something to your Favorites list in Finder. 1) Launch Finder. 2) Therein, navigate to the directory of interest. (~/Dropbox/Private/Writing/Scrivener in the second attachment below. ...

Re: New Project default directory in Preferences

Thanks, Keith, but that's not quite what I was asking/wanting. What I want is for a user-specified directory to show in the list of shortcuts on the left-hand side in the "Save As" dialog. While I put *most* projects beneath one pathname, I subdivide that into several categories, e.g., Sho...

New Project default directory in Preferences

I'd like to be able to tell Scrivener (FYI: I'm using version 3.0) my preferred "default" directory for New Projects. I can manually walk the New Project dialog to ~/Dropbox/Private/Writing/Scrivener/ (which I created manually in Mac's file browser) for the new project but I'd like Scriven...

Scrivener Stickers

I'd be pleased to have a small sticker on the outside of my notebook to help advertise Scrivener. Something about 2x3". See the attachment for a general idea but please forgive my poor graphic-editing skills that prevent me from adding curved text inside the ellipse at the top with, for example...

Compile Setting: Add Seperators to Formatting

I'd like to see Separators added to the Formatting settings so that, depending on an items level, they can have different separators. This would lessen the apparent association of "scene" to file and permit fragments of a scene to be saved in different files. The separator for such sub-sce...
