Re: Suggested spellings no longer function under Mojave

Hi Keith. I made a quick document using the default novel template and pasting in the text from Great Expectations. I tried to upload a file but the forum wont allow it (file size too big)*, so here's a gif illustrating the problem: SpellingTest.gif If I right click on a misspelt word on an individu...

Re: Suggested spellings no longer function under Mojave

Don’t know if this will help KB or anyone else, but this symptom was also discussed at Apple Support Communities as having occurred in Apple Pages. The last poster (March 30) says that it was corrected for them in Pages version 8, build 6194. I know Pages is in a black box, but maybe the similar wo...

Re: External backup for Scrivener iOS files?

If you want to unzip natively on iOS you can make a Shortcut to do it. It takes about five minutes with Apples free Shortcuts app. Once downloaded from the App Store, you create a new Shortcut, drag in the 'Extract Archive' and 'Save File' actions, and turn on the 'Ask Where To Save' button.

Re: Big dumb question

Pete, one last thing, then you can go write. :D Since you’re using an external keyboard, there’s keyboard shortcuts. See the iOS knowledgebase for the list. Also, hold down Command for onscreen list. I discovered this one by accident, much to my delight. And see the knowledgebase article on fonts, ...

Re: Big dumb question

Thanks for the tips, Jim. Handy stuff. I’m going to go through the tutorial this Sunday and have some fun.

After that, I’m going to stop procrastinating and actually get some writing done...

Re: Big dumb question

I’ve just discovered that Scrivener for iOS has its own ‘Back Up To...’ equivalent using the project share menu (via the Edit button or a Long Press). This way I can save archives into iCloud with both the desktop and iOS versions (opening them on iOS using an extractor I made with the Shortcuts app...

Re: Big dumb question

Yes. It's also possible to include the date in the filename for automatic backups. The setting is in the Scrivener -> Preferences -> Backups pane. Brilliant. Thanks, Katherine. Yes. The Back Up To... is kind of the inversion of File->Save As. You end up with a copy, but your Scrivener window stays ...

Re: Big dumb question

On the desktop/laptop side of things, be sure to take advantage of File->Back Up->Back Up To... It has the option to add the current date and time to the filename automatically, in a format that sorts properly. That’s a nice feature. If I use ‘Back Up To...’ to save a backup to a different location...

He has indeed, Jim. I have only been playing around with it for about half an hour and it's already my favourite iOS writing app (also, Airdrop in conjunction with the Files app works great for me).

Good stuff.

Re: Big dumb question

There are other methods, as referenced in these posts. Thanks Jim. I guess I just need to try a few things out and see how it goes. I don't mind a few steps. Just chiming in to say Airdrop works fine (once I convince my devices to actually see each other again :lol: ) . That's good to know Sarsen. ...

Re: Big dumb question

Sounds like the best option for your preferences would be to use iTunes file transfer. Thanks Kinsey. Much appreciated. I was hoping for something a little less clunky than an iTunes transfer (like being able to airdrop, or being able to copy files back and fourth from my iCloud), but thanks for de...

Big dumb question

I have Scrivener on the Mac and I’m considering the iOS version. However, I’d rather not use Dropbox, or sync in general, I prefer to copy across files and delete the oldest version of the file manually. Is it possible to email, airdrop, handoff, or otherwise ‘fling’ a file back and forth between my...

Re: Spell & Grammar checker

I’ve found that the contextual menu bug (missing spelling suggestions) only happens while working on longer documents.

For example, in Scrivener I’ll see this bug in scrivenings mode, but not in document mode; in Apple Pages, only on multi-page documents.

I think it’s a Mojave bug.

Re: Folders for Project Bookmarks

That is a stunningly elegant, flexible solution. Even better than the one I was after. Up until now I hadn't really grasped the utility of the Quick Reference panel. Now I do.

Thank you, Amber.
