Re: iCloud Sync

For another half-turn of the dragon's tail, it looks to me like Scrivener V3 projects inside DevonThink databases work fine. I even made a DevonThink template out of an empty Scrivener project, so I don't even have to leave DevonThink to start a new Scrivener file/project/Polynesian moai. Of course,...

Re: When I write fast, suddenly the text is all gone

If you manage to hit Command-A, all your text will be selected and then replaced on the next keystroke. You may even have a keyboard problem, or you may be hitting a key rollover limitation. Few keyboards have "n-key" rollover. Many have just two key rollover. My Apple wired keyboard seems...

Re: iCloud Sync

Keith, you have a most wonderful philosophy of customer support. My only regret is popping off and consuming so much of your time! Dropbox works great, and I guess I need to man up and install it on my systems. I have shied away because I can't get away from iCloud and didn't want to install a secon...

Re: iCloud Sync

This is truly a mystery to me. A package, such as a Scrivener project, is just a directory. Finder will show you its contents with the Show Package Contents option in the action menu, and at a shell prompt/terminal window, you can just "cd" into it like any other directory. I think the rea...

Re: OPML import question

How are you creating your OPML? I have an Applescript[1] that takes references in Bookends and converts them to OPML, and it uses standard XML character encoding for line feed that correctly import in Scrivener: 
 ( &#nnnn; is the character encoding format and 10 is the decimal codepoin...

OPML import question

I would like to preserve hard line endings in imported OPML. However, 0xa characters are getting stripped out and the the text reflowed. I’m importing to the synopsis cards. Is there a way to include a hard line ending in an import? Maybe a character other than 0xa? Word wrapping is welcome. I want ...

Re: Great new version

I'd like to get in on this. It's always been pretty obvious Literature and Latte is a company with genuine interest in writers of all stripes right down to unpublished hacks like me. That captivated me from first learning about Scrivener. I've been to four book store events in the last couple of yea...

Update error - not a big issue at this time

When I go to the Scrivener menu and choose "check for updates" I get a dialog box that says, "Update Error! An error occurrred in retrieving update information. Please try again later." There is a "Cancel Update" button. I realize there probably aren't any updates yet, ...

Re: Anything to share about Scrivener 3.0?

Ha ha, I wondered how long it would take for someone to complain about the icon. Every single time any app changes its icon, someone dislikes it! It took us a long, loooong time to find an icon we really liked. I disagree that it is Aqua or a throwback, because we were careful to use flat colours. ...

I'm going through the new tutorial now, and this morning I outlined a new idea for a short story. I'll dive in later this afternoo...

Monday. I can do this. Deep breaths, three days, just 26,000 seconds to go. 25,985 seconds. Weak.... Must continue... If anyone finds this, know that I would have departed this Earth with style, if only I had made it to Monday. And style sheets. 25,970 seconds. Fate can't be denied. It's harsh but a...

Re: Clarification of iCloud concerns

I have some notes in Devonthink, and have discovered a Scrivener project can be stored inside a Devonthink database. Stored only or viewed also? Stored, viewed, any usage in my experience. Anything you put in Devonthink is stored in a regular filesystem folder. You can select something and choose &...

Re: Anything to share about Scrivener 3.0?

Well Devonthink's UI makes Scrivener 2 UI look cutting edge. The Devonthink metadata panel looks just like a Finder inspector from OS 10.5 or so. It allows tagging but the tag entry window 1) is tiny and 2) doesn't resize to content. Just a nice clean custom metadata panel would really help. I can ...

Re: Anything to share about Scrivener 3.0?

Scrivener, Devonthink and Tinderbox I tried Tinderbox, even bought a license. I was a Brain fan, but had trouble losing nodes. I think that problem has been resolved, but I found Devonthink to be handier. I live my work life on a command line. I don't like being tied to graphical interfaces. For br...
