Re: How to add text to a form like document

When you get V3 for Windows, this will be simple to achieve, using the new concept of styles. Essentially, you'd have one style for Questions, and one for Answers. You'd set the Questions style to be followed automatically by the Answer style. Both styles will also be accessible through shortcuts, a...

Re: iCloud Sync

You could take it as a vote of confidence that I forked out the £80 for this year's Dropbox just for the Scrivener integration.... :D

Re: iCloud Sync

I completely accept that if you have more than 2Gb in your Scrivener folder and this is the only reason that you use Dropbox you might lose out, but that strikes me as unlikely. Not impossible but unlikely. More likely than you imagine, I suspect— if there are more people like me who had more than ...

Re: Sort on a custom metadata field

Which version of Scrivener do you have? You can do this in Version 3, as long as your date field is a proper 'date' type. All you need to do is to add your date field ('Birthday') to the Outline view ( View > Outliner Options > Birthday , or click on the chevron in the right of the header bar) then ...

Re: Completely confused about "Project Notes" aka "Notes"

But I still need the other kind of bookmarks. If I've read this correctly: you understand that you can now make a 'bookmark' which points to any particular document/group in the binder (ie Document Bookmarks, as Katherine describes), but you also want to 'bookmark' a specific location within a docu...

Re: Character sketch templates

Project templates (e.g. UK Stage Play) are only standard blank projects with some configurations already made for you—there's nothing magic about any of them and you can transform any template into any other just by changing a few settings. For your case, that means that you can simply open your no...

Re: Can't find files

Of course - it would be daft not to... I assumed the OP would be doing that anyway, but if not, then you’re right to point it out. Thanks.

Re: Mac. OS. Scriptwriting & WordCount

Hi... Yes, I think there's a couple of things you're missing, so perhaps a bit of background will help. First of all: 'Scriptwriting Mode' is basically a way of turning on a few helpful features for a particular document you're editing to make it easy for you to apply the special scriptwriting forma...

Re: Can't find files

Okay... I've managed to find it. However, where is the best place to move the back up file to so that it automatically saves and syncs to Dropbox. Why not use your iCloud account for backups -- if you point Scrivener to put the backups in the iCloud Drive folder, then they will also be available ac...

Re: DEVONthink 3 (beta)

I’ve been using DT3 for a couple of weeks, and so far have found it to be a very useful upgrade. The new UI has some nice tricks which were missing or had to be faked in DT2 — the multi-purpose inspector panel has excellent new features, for an example. The addition of Smart Rules looks useful, too ...

Re: Has anyone gotten styles to transfer to Word yet?

Can't test this as I'm not on Windows at the moment, but one way to do this on the Mac is.... (assuming that the Beta has caught up with this). Bring up the Style Panel, then in the Editor highlight one example of the style you want to convert. In the Style Panel, click on the Gear symbol at the bot...

Re: New to writing software

You can share your work (eg as Word documents or ebook or plain text etc) in several ways, depending on what your exact requirements are. You can use Scrivener on any device you own on the one licence, but you'll need a separate licence for each platform (eg one licence for Macs, one for Windows, on...

Re: Looking for a panel with formatting

I've given you some information about why the problem may not as simple as you seem to think it is and I've suggested practical ways to work around it in the meantime. Do you have any other suggestions for ways in which users can help you?
