Re: Will the iOS version work via "Desktop sync"?

O.K., thanks. I suspected it would be an obstacle.

I'll buy a battery for emergencies--I can use it for other purposes as well....

Thanks,

Will the iOS version work via "Desktop sync"?

Sometimes I forget to keep my laptop recharged--I work at coffee shops so this can be very frustrating as there are few electric plugs available in the coffee shops where I live. So I'm looking at several options (battery recharger, learning better habits) including buying Scrivener for iOS. My thin...

Re: Automatic Shutdown?

Oh, wait. Just found it!

It's under Preferences-->General-->Automatic Quit

Delay is user configurable--like they read my mind!

What other cool features are hiding in there? :)

Automatic Shutdown?

For some reason I am endlessly forgetting to close my documents (I usually just shut down the whole program) on my desktop iMac and hen find myself at a coffee shop on my MacBook and there's the warning about the document already being open, can't edit, do you want to make a copy. Ugh. I'm hesitant ...

Re: Where is my text?

O.K., I see what you are saying now. Thanks. I need to ponder what to do....

Meanwhile, just to dot the i's here, one more question:

If if the "Open Recent" drop down is a MacOS thing, why doesn't it warn of conflicts since it knows about them? Something seems wrong. :)

Re: Where is my text?

I'm not sure I completely follow what your e-mail is getting at--my base concern is this:

When I open a file from within Scrivener I am not warned of a conflict. When I the open same file from within the Finder I am warned of a conflict.

Why doesn't Scrivener warn me about the conflict?

Re: Where is my text?

Thanks, AmberV. Your point of going back to the back-up is good one--except that it is quite likely that the user may have clue that he has opened an older file. say you heavily edited chapters 1 through 7, but you open it up and start working on chapter 8. It could be a very long time before you lo...

Re: Where is my text?

Another follow up. Before I was opening the file from the "Open Recent" drop down box. Just now I tried opening the same file via the Finder. I was presented with a dialog box warning me that there were two versions of there file, one dated last night from my iMac and the other from my lap...

Where is my text?

Hello, I'm just getting rolling with Scrivener. I'm working on a new project and I seem to have lost some text. I have a laptop and an iMac, I use the iCloud feature where the desktops are mirrored (and my Scrivener folder is on the desktop, so it, too, is mirrored). I've been using it this way sinc...

Re: How to migrate from WordPress to Scrivener?

There is a way to keep the Medium posts as drafts and then to export them--I forget the details now but it it fairly straightforward as I remember. This workflow does give you proper titles for each document, although the word "Draft" and the date are there, too.

Re: Feature Request - Dark / Night Mode

I wonder if just an easier way of switching between themes might be a good option for this, perhaps having a "Themes" submenu in the "Scrivener" menu... Hmm. All the best, Keith Well, since you mentioned it...I wasn't going to post anything about this because you just released t...

Problem upgrading to v3

I'm having a bit of difficulty upgrading to v3. I opened v3 and saw that it wanted me to enter my old serial number etc. So then I opened v2 and--here's the first bit of weirdness--it acted like it was still a trial. There was some sort of dialog box asking me to try to automatically check for the a...
