Re: A great program marred by critical flaws in core functionality.

I would add that Scrivener 1.9 can't do a simple entire document word count or search . I hope that's sarcastic... Nope, no sarcasm. That was true before I gave up on Scrivener early 2019. I revisited this issue after I posted it and see it can now be done in full screen mode. However, back in 2018...

Re: Sync with external file suddenly missing designated folder

The sync file was being saved as a "last resort" back up in the event of (unexpected) catastrophic failure (corrupt file) of some sort. ..something I experience with Scrivener some 4 plus years ago. ...I only recently started to use it again.

Re: Sync with external file suddenly missing designated folder

"Sync to external folder" means that Scrivener saves a copy of the project in a different folder than the one where you have your project and as simple txt-files. When you set it up Scrivener expects you to point to an empty folder. All you have to do is to set up an empty sub-folder in y...

Word Count between folders/scenes.

How do you makes a selected word count between scenes/folders? I see where you can make a word count within folder/scene and the total project manuscript count is given at the bottom. But, I see no way to make a selection outside of a folder/scene and find a word count.

Re: newest windows update doesn't work

I installed the 6/12 update and noticed the load time takes a very long time. Then, I also noticed there was another update ... to the 6/12 update ... dated 6/16.
