Set default project folder

I did a search but most of the hits concern backups. So, this post. I want to set Scrivener (1.9) to save to a particular place on Dropbox. In Options I can set the default location for the Scratchpad. I can set the default location for Backups. But not for the project itself! I'm sure I did this on...

Re: Changing computer

This is a variation on the question. My old laptop just died--the charger connection is broken, the battery ran out, and it's now just a doorstop. NP, it was old anyway. Got a new one. The Scrivener (Windows) install went fine and the license code took. But I'm wondering about that old one. There's ...

Re: Commitment & responsibility...

> "We don't comment on release dates." Yeah, I gotta agree with this advice, but I'd add that in the future you might earmark a few of the bigger threads and say "if you want to know why we don't comment on release dates, you can see what happens when we do and those dates are missed....

Re: Rename Project?

Got it. I do know not to go messing with the innards of the file system. Thank you for the prompt replies.

Re: Rename Project?

Sorry to be thick here, but let me re-state to make sure I have this. I can rename (from the command line or Explorer) the folder Story.scriv ... Klar The rest is managed from inside Scrivener. That means ... what, exactly? What renaming happens inside the program? Am I right to think that's the Pro...

Re: Rename Project?

Inside this is Hugo Vuerloz.scriv Inside that is project.scrivx It's an old story, as you can tell. My more recent works are things like Into ...

Re: Upper to lower case

Thanks, I was afraid of that. When speaking of King Henry, both words are capitalized. When speaking of any old king, then the word is in lower case. Where I made my mistake was when I referred to the King and I was referring specifically to Henry, I thought the word should be capitalized. It is, af...

Upper to lower case

I need to make a selective change of words from upper to lower case. That is, sometimes I need to have, say, "King" be capitalized, but other times not. So I do not want a global search and replace, I need only a find. Can anyone help me with this? (for the 895th time, Skip sighs for the l...
