Re: Accented characters don't work on Wine (Linux)

I just solved this on my system, so I thought I'd post the solution here. Ibus was installed on my computer using Kubuntu 19.10, but I still ran into the problem where Scrivener would produce the same character every time I tried typing an accent. I.e., if I first typed é, every accented character t...

Re: Working with large *.scriv folders

Ah, thanks!

@ Literature & Latte - are any optimisations or changes that will speed up loading times when working with larger *.scriv folders planned?

Thank you for your reply!

What do you mean when you say a 'mix' works? I'd like to try out your approach on my Windows PC.

Many thanks in advance!

Working with large *.scriv folders

I have a Scrivener project folder which I have been using for the past ten years or so as a repository for notes concerning the various sources that I work on as a scholar. This has always worked well. By allowing me to organise, edit and look up information in one and the same interface, Scrivener ...

Re: Cannot save edits to a text that has comments

You are welcome! This appears to be a permissions issue. EDIT #1 - odd: I was able to edit a text that had a comment by running the programme as an administrator, but was able to do this only once. No further edits held - they were gone when I restarted Scrivener. EDIT #2 - I am no longer sure this ...

[LH3134] Cannot save edits to a text that has comments

I think I've discovered a very substantial bug in the new beta: If you add comments to a text you can no longer edit it . To replicate, * Create a new project; * Add two identical texts to either 'draft' or 'research' (use e.g. lorem ipsum); * Add a comment to one of the two texts (shift-F4); * Save...

Re: Bidirectional linking of passages within a text

Thank you for your reply. This feature would aid the research process that underlies the writing of a document for publication, such as an article intended for a journal. That is to say, it is not intended for the ultimate output that is sent to the editor. I know how to use HTML when editing a web ...

Re: Bidirectional linking of passages within a text

I am afraid that using Scrivenings mode whenever you need to compare two or more passages doesn't entirely solve the problem. Using links like the one I describe allows you to write a single, internally coherent text, such as a summary of a book, and add an extra layer which facilitates the process ...

Bidirectional linking of passages within a text

Would it be possible to add to Scrivener the ability to create links between two or more passages within the same text? I am a literary historian, and often work on complexly interrelated texts. A feature like the one I describe above would make it much easier to keep track of connections and/or par...
