Re: is it possible to convert a short story format to a novel format?

Scrivener project templates are simply a standard new project with certain defaults already set up - there's nothing special about (well there is in some respects, but it's an advanced topic....) So you could simply change the settings to be the same as the p Novel project. Template. But the simples...

Re: Drag and drop

You mention drag and drop in the post title: it should work fine within the Editor (it's a standard MacOS feature, I think). Just make sure you do it in two distinct actions: select the text, then release the mouse, then click and hold on the selection and drag it. If you're too quick between the tw...

Re: Sub-sections Not Part of Chapter

JoRo is referring to Scrivenings -- that's the virtual document feature which means that you can see the text of multiple documents as though there were temporarily stitched together. When you click on a folder, you normally automatically see the subdocuments in Scrivenings view, but occasionally yo...

[Wishlet]: Shortcut for forward delete

I’m just starting to use the iOS version more often with an iPad Pro and Smartkeyboard, which as any fule kno is a perfectly acceptable thing except for Apple’s ridiculously stupidly asinenly pathetically shortsightedly bonkers decision BOTH not to have a forward delete key combination AND not to al...

Re: Folders in collections

You should be able to search by custom metadata now -- each type of metadata you create is automatically added to the list of search types (for Search in Project cmd-shift-f) after you create them. In the screenshot, you can see the ones I've added to this project after the first break: Novel and Re...

Re: Print to 4x6 index card layout from Corkboard

I don't have any 4x6 index cards to hand, so I can't test this, but... I think the following should work in theory. 1. cmd-shift-p (page setup). 2. Choose Page Attributes in the dropdown list, then change Paper Size to 4x6 and the orientation to Landscape. 3. Choose Scrivener in the dropdown list at...

Re: Need non-fiction book template for Scrivner Windows.

There's no difference between a Windows v3 project and a Mac V3 project, so you'll be able to use any template from the Mac on Windows, including the non-fiction ones. (Technically, you can also use the templates from previous versions, but they need to go through a one-off conversion process and th...

Re: Book for Windows Scrivner 3?

There probably will be a book available, but... Assuming you're a user who's completely new to Scrivener: personally I'd caution against buying one at the beginning. (Even if you're used to a previous version, I'd say the same thing: V3 comes with a specific tutorial on the differences between the v...

Re: keyboard shortcut for applying keywords

Glad it helped!

I don't think there's a shortcut for the application of a keyword from the panel. You can right click and choose 'Apply keywords to selected documents' of course, but that's using the mouse / touchpad.

I'd probably use Keyboard Maestro to build a macro to do it instead.

Re: Composition Mode Suggested Spelling Correction Text Unreadable

Which version of Scrivener and MacOS/OSX are you using?

I don't see this problem on V3.03 on High Sierra.

Re: keyboard shortcut for applying keywords

sk, This isn't a perfect solution to the workflow you describe, but it may be easier than the export import idea. (You'll no doubt already know some of these steps, but I've included them all for completeness.) 1. Import your entire transcript, then Go through the text until you want to split (opt-d...

Re: How do I set a font for document so it stays?

A bit of background may be helpful here... Scrivener uses the concept of a 'default' format for paragraphs -- it's what you get if you open a new project, create a new document and just start typing. If you don't do anything else you'll always get this 'default' paragraph format. The format includes...

Re: Viewing a folder with content does not show folder Total Progress

I can't think of one, I'm afraid. (I'd like the facility too...) The best I can do is when you're in the Chapter itself, press cmd-ctl-r (go to enclosing group) then cmd-0 (collapse all). This will give you a 'table of contents' type view of all the chapters with word counts etc. Not perfect but it'...
