Re: The ability to password protect individual projects

Edit: FileVault 2 (released with Mavericks) changed the encryption behaviour from home folder to disk-level, so anyone with permission to unlock the disk can see your home folder, and admins can change the permissions to allow read/write access (which seems like a step backwards in security to me.....

Yeah I'd not kept up on the changes to FileVault. It used to encrypt a user's home folder. Hmph.

Re: Keyboard shortcuts for jumping to next sentence/selecting sentence

Scrivener just uses the standard macOS bindings here, and sadly Apple doesn't provide a next/previous sentence binding. I doubt we have a shortcut available that would work for it, either. This is actually super easy. Just add a keyboard shortcut in System Preferences for Select Sentence (e.g. ⇧⌘A)...

Re: The ability to password protect individual projects

You guys are all overthinking this. I'm pretty sure recent version of macOS have FileVault enabled by default, which means that your home folder (and all files therein) is encrypted with your login password. The idea of encrypted individual files or folders on an already encrypted volume is a bit po...

Saving Emails in Scrivener

Most of my feedback on drafts comes in the form of emails, so I used to select the email text then using the Clippings system service to save to Scrivener. But just recently I found that you can save emails to Scrivener! To do this you need the .eml plain file, which you get by dragging an email out...

Rename this subforum "Scrivener Tips"?

Given the number of people asking for technical support in this subforum instead of in technical support, maybe renaming this one to "Scrivener Tips" or similar would alleviate this. An idea?

Re: Scrivener 3.1 is going to be incredible!

The biggest obstacle for scriptwriting in Scrivener for me now is the lack of support for collaboration Personally, I think the desire for Google Docs style collaboration is a red herring. My suggestion would be to keep your locus of collaboration on the PDF, e.g. you and your collaborator discuss ...

Re: Remember to Empty the Trash!

The OP was specifically referring to the Project Search. Um, yes which prompted my question about Quick Search, which as the name implies is a type of search. Regardless of whether "search" in your previous reply tacitly implied strictly a Project Search, do you see that the OP's issue of...

Scrivener 3.1 is going to be incredible!

I've been using the Scrivener 3.0.9 beta for the past few days and I've been blown away by how many additions and improvements have been added to a free update. I'm amazed and humbled by Keith's dedication to making truly first-class software. The changelog is extensive, so I thought I'd dig through...

Re: Remember to Empty the Trash!

Your responses are contradictory:

Note that you can exclude Trash documents from searches, for exactly this reason.


The Quick Search, as the name implies, has no options.


Unless you're planning to be correct all the time, maybe drop the snark? (And even then it's probably a good idea!)

Re: Remember to Empty the Trash!

Note that you can exclude Trash documents from searches, for exactly this reason. To see the search options, click the arrow at the left edge of the search box. These options do not appear to affect the Quick Search results. Is this a bug? If not, how do you exclude Trash from the Quick Search resu...

Re: Spellcheck oddity with the text: "straight and narrow"

This seems reminiscent of the 'i' → 'A' autocorrect problem on iOS, which was supposedly due to machine learning: https://daringfireball.net/linked/2017/11/07/ios-11-i

I'm gonna guess they've implemented machine learning for the spelling/grammar in Mojave too.
