Project's time saving in iOS Scrivener

I've been using Ulysses for few months because I often make quick edits in my draft on the go while sitting on a bus or walking, and I might open and edit the app really often. Ulysses saves the project into iCloud in few seconds and it's really handy. But Scrivener takes more time to sync the proje...

Re: iPad 2018 or iPad Pro 10.5" ?

And now with the 2018 iPad down to $230 on sale, and a much recommended Logitech or other bluetooth keyboard for under $30, and a good cheap case and/or stand you can have an excellent Scrivening set up for under $300. That’s pretty amazing! I took a look at the new iPad Pros at my local big box st...

Re: Two devices open at the same time

@DavidWebb, you're absolutely right in that the On My iPhone project never gets synced anywhere. So as long as you only delete from On My iPhone (and the projects WILL have different names, as stated above, so they will be tough to confuse) you should be good. Thank you so much for this and the hel...

Re: Two devices open at the same time

Silverdragon, have you tested this? What happens if you happen to sync the iPhone after having moved the project to On my iPhone but before deleting it from the iPhone? I haven't tested this yet, but I don't really see any problems there, because the duplicate is a duplicate and it's in On my iPhon...

Re: Two devices open at the same time

Should be fine. But even if you mess up and accidentally change something on your iPhone, Scriv is paranoid and all "conflicting" files will be saved in a new folder with a big yellow triangle on it. Then comes the annoying checking of the files to see which you want. There is a way to av...

Two devices open at the same time

Perhaps this topic is covered in somewhere else or maybe in tutorials, so please forgive me if this is nothing new. But I couldn't find any clear answers. When I'm writing with my iPad, I need to read and check notes from Research folders. But it's not convenient to go look at them in iPad because t...

Re: iOS has no distraction-free composition mode?

Well, that's strange, because it works perfectly with me. I can check the settings for you in the evening and send some screenshots, because I don't have buttons or bars when I write with my external keyboard. You have to set the settings in the iOS Keyboard settings, not in Scrivener. But I'll sen...

Re: iOS has no distraction-free composition mode?

I'm not sure if I understood that correctly, but you can get all those bars away from your settings when using external keyboard. I tweaked the iPad's keyboard settings and I managed to get all those bars away. I have nothing but the page view (and of course the basic buttons on the top), no format...

Re: iOS has no distraction-free composition mode?

My biggest irk: as I type on the iPad, the buttons on the bottom of the Scrivener writing area change to reflect whatever context they detect. I find this VERY distracting. Strangely and frustratingly, when I click the “hide” down arrows on these bars, they reclaim their space as soon as I start ty...

May I ask why you can't write the second draft with iOS?

Re: How do you keep your ongoing work safe?

I'm writing only in iOS environment. I'm using Dropbox and I also save my projects regularly in iCloud (Apple's File App) everytime when I'm making big changes or write something new. Everyday after day's work I also send my project as a .zip file to my email. With these three easy methods I'm prett...

Re: Indents and zooming in Scrivener vs. Ulysseus

You are aware that Scrivener is not a WYSIWYG editor either, right? That's the whole point of the Compile process -- to divorce what you see on-screen from what gets output. Yes, sorry. I used too loosely the word. But at least it's WYSIWYG for me when I make indents, paragraphs, aligns etc. and I ...

Re: Indents and zooming in Scrivener vs. Ulysseus

Thanks, guys! Now I understand that the Markdown wasn't for me at all. I thought I understood the basics through Tutorials, but now it's obvious that I was sooo lost. Call me an old fashioned fart, but I'm gonna stick with the clear world of WYSIWYG. I understand that Ulysses is great for people who...

Re: Indents and zooming in Scrivener vs. Ulysseus

Thanks for the reply! I did insert indents in the same way like I insert them in all word processors, through the editor and the software inserts the first line indents for me automatically. I don't use Tab or spaces or anything like that, I don't insert indents manually. In Scrivener iOS I insert t...
