Re: New to Scriv: How can I copy files and research material to a different project?

Can you not simply open both projects (in Scrivener Mac) and drag&drop the materials between projects?

Re: Upgrade to Catalina makes Scrivener believe I haven't purchased Scrivener

The first thing I'd try is upgrade to Scrivener 3.1.5. Specifically since the release notes for 3.1.4 include this note:
Updated for macOS 10.15 Catalina compatibility. All users who intend to upgrade their OS are strongly encouraged to apply this upgrade.

Re: Which is better with Scrivener: MacBook Air or 27-inch iMac?

That appears to be a matter of personal preferences. I do happen to have a 27" iMac but prefer writing on my 12" MacBook. It gives me more flexibility to write in places where I don't normally sit (and may unconsciously associate with "work"). Running Scrivener in full screen mod...

Re: Scrivener on a small iPhone

I have Scrivener on an iPhone SE which has a 4 inch display (as in: four point zero inches).

Like @NoHope said, I wouldn't want to write any long texts on it, but it's perfectly usable when you have that flash of insight that you want to add to your WiP.

Re: Mis-capitalization after "i.e."

I'm not the previous poster, but I, too, still see this happening (Scrivener 3.1.3, MacOS 10.14.6). The system language is German, but Scrivener's is English, if that matters. It does not happen in TextEdit. It doesn't happen in Scrivener's "Notes" panel as I just noticed. It does happen i...

Re: Fallen at the first hurdle... licence key issue

Glad to hear you figured it out yourself.

For context, here's the reason for your problems: L&L had to switch the license provider recently since the old one shut down, https://www.literatureandlatte.com/blog ... ith-paddle

Re: 32bit vs 64bit

Ubuntu seems to backtrack from that announcement somewhat, though: https://blog.ubuntu.com/2019/06/24/stat ... -20-04-lts

They specifically mention WINE as one of the reasons.

Re: New comer's cross-platform question

Scrivener 2.9 for Mac should accept your Scrivener 3 license just fine.

Re: Help/User Forums fail

Same here. Works when you attach "index.php" to the URL.

I got the impression they updated the forum software last week. That's probably related.

Minor (re)drawing bug, changing background colour

I have a rather wide Scapple board. It's so wide, it doesn't fit the screen in fullscreen mode. When I change the background colour, then scroll sideways to get the rest of the board into view, it initially appears with the old background colour. It switches to the correct colour as soon as I change...

Re: How do I open an existing project?

There's a friendly button "Open an Existing File..." (right next to "Open Recent") which opens the familiar Mac file selection box. Or use "Open ..." from the File menu, like in any other Mac app.

If you're not seeing those, then something is seriously wrong, though.

Re: ToC off by one, but only for a few sections

Thanks for the explanation, Keith. Your solution makes much more sense, too. I didn't like that I had to insert page breaks in the text just to get the print version right. What would I have done for the ebook version, where those page breaks would have been awkward? Controlling this in compile is t...
