Hi Writer

On the Compile Page, click on the funnel symbol to filter the documents to be included. "Documents in Collection" is one of the options and offers a list of your collections.

Re: Scrivener should become subscription

To respond to Keith's hypothetical question about a trade offs in a "cut down" version of Scrivener and specifically the example that research material might be excluded in the interests of synch via iCloud. I use Scrivener mainly for research (Economics and Art History) and keeping resear...

Re: Paper position in composition mode

Hi Micha

I have a slider for paper position in Composition mode. Do you have the latest version? I am running Scrivener 3.1.5 under MacOS 10.15.3.

Re: using labels for academic writing??

Hi aleca72 Scrivener is a brilliant research platform. To give an art history example, I am writing a "popularising" ebook on Hawksmoor's London churches. I use labels mainly to denote each church and associated research materials eg other nearby historic buildings, sources, photographs, l...

Re: dragging images doesn't work

Hi Piero

Have you tried updating Mojave to 10.14.6? I have that and image dragging into Scapple works OK.

Re: EndNote footnotes in Scrivener not showing up in Word

Danica I think that Endnote, like other reference managers, inserts temporary citation markers in scrivener. Then you compile your draft to rtf format and run that file through another routine in Endnote, that inserts the final citation format and adds a bibliography. The new file thus created shoul...

Re: Text jumps too far when using arrow keys to navigate document / how to adjust?

Hi

I tried the experiment and observed the same behaviour. The cursor of course does move just to the next line. But to respond to Ioa, the same behaviour does happen in TextEdit.

Re: Test Scrivener's New .docx Converters

Hi Keith Herewith a zip file with 3 documents: "Recent Work" is a short document created using Word for Mac 2011, with a few footnotes and embedded (by copy/paste) spreadsheet and chart. This imports perfectly with the new converters. "RP paper extract" is a few pages from a coll...

Re: Test Scrivener's New .docx Converters

Further to this, after experimenting with two more .docx files. Embedded graphics objects - mostly tables and graphs pasted from Excel into Word- are not imported using the new converter, but are imported using the Aspose converter. This applies to all three files. Footnotes are imported using the n...

Re: Test Scrivener's New .docx Converters

Footnotes and live links to email addresses seem to be lost if a .docx file is imported using the new converters, but they are retained when using the Aspose converters. However, footnotes written in Scrivener and exported using the new converters seem to be fine. (Using Scrivener 3.1.3 on macOS 10....

Re: Will iOS Scriv Work in iPad OS?

I am not so sure that Apple has planned out an "IOS+" future for us all. Regarding Catalyst, this comes from a recent interview in Art Technica with the Catalyst team at Apple: "As for Mac users who might be concerned that their full-featured apps might become watered-down as develope...
