Re: How could one copy a folder (with its content) to another project / another Scrivener window?

Open both projects and resize the desktop window for each so they are side by side. Click and drag the folder you want to copy from the source project binder to the destination project binder.

Re: Remove first text file title from table of contents (TOC)

Weird. On the very off chance, is there a custom separator (in the Compile settings) between folders and text files that somehow pulls the text file heading?

Re: Remove first text file title from table of contents (TOC)

When you click on each of the different levels in the Compile window, the Binder will highlight the folders/files that are assigned to that level. Are the first text files in each folder at a different level than the others?

Re: Not all Folders compiling as Chapters

lunk -

I can't find where any part of what you posted applies to the Windows version. Is that all supposed to be in the Compile window?

"Project -> Project settings - Section types" - This isn't a menu choice in the Windows version.

Re: Computer Crash. Backups gone.

Auto-save doesn't do a backup, it just saves the current work in progress. If your computer crashes while the project is open, it gets corrupted because of the way Windows manages things. To get actual backups, from the main toolbar go to Tools>Options>Backup and adjust the settings. Note that after...

Re: How do I add scene breaks within a document?

Your profile says you use a Mac, but this is the Windows forum. I only know Windows, so there may be tools in the Mac version that I don't know about. For Windows, I'd set up each Chapter as a Folder in the Binder. Then make each scene where you want a separator a separate Text file under each Folde...

Re: How do I title chapters in ToC?

Take a look at Chapter 23.8 and Appendix D in the manual. You assign the chapter titles using the 'Section Layout' button/pane in the 'Formatting' tab of the Compiler. Click on the Folder level hierarchy (usually Level 1+) to highlight it, then click on the "Section Layout' button to get to the...

Amazon Look Inside - Okay with Windows Scrivener MOBI?

Seeing the other thread regarding issues with the Amazon Look Inside feature made me go searching on the web. I came across a few posts that raises this question: For Windows 1.9.8.0 users who upload a MOBI file made by Scrivener, will this file perform properly in the Amazon Look Inside feature?

Re: Chapter headings but no content!!!

This usually happens because the Scrivener your_project_name.scrivx file has been moved or otherwise disassociated from the your_project_name.scriv folders which make up the entire Scrivener project. A .scrivx file is an XML file, so it would retain the Binder structure as you describe, but if it's ...

Re: Scrivener 3 Windows Release

If you don't want to use beta code, that's fine, but it doesn't really make sense to argue that we should release the software now while simultaneously refusing to use the code that we *have* released.

Re: Quick question

Could you also create a new project using File>New Project>Fiction>Novel (with parts) and then resize the desktop windows so you can drag and drop the chapters of each book under the Parts in the new project's Binder? I don't know about the chapter re-numbering, but there's likely a way. The one thi...
