Re: Save error on V3 for Windows keeps popping up

This is not the forum to post this in and cross-posting is deprecated. Try whitelisting Scrivener in your antivirus program.

Re: Failed at saving

Start by whitelisting Scrivener in your Antivirus program. There have been dozens of posts on this.

Re: WORDS ARE KING to writers - THEY ARE OUR #1 PRIORITY!

People think English spelling is random. Actually it's morphemic—which Webster seems not to have understood!—representing not just sound but also meaning. The trouble is the that point at which the morphemes were distinct phonemically is back in the Dark and Middle Ages. "Knight" and "...

Re: Shortcut for Bullet Points or Lists

Just as a suggestion, as you are a Windows user, you’ll get more help with your questions if you post in the Windows forums rather than the Mac forums. There are people who use both platforms and someone who knows thw Windows system will—I don’t know enough—probably chip in here though.

Re: Congratulations Team L&L!

Gor reasons that don't matter, I have just bought an upgrade licence for my collaborator in China. So I needed to look up her v.1 licence … which I bought in Nov 2013. She's been using the v. 3 beta since mid-2018, and now I've paid the princely sum of £23.97 (including 20% VAT!). So 8 years for the...

Re: iCloud Sync

Hi, I'm using Scrivener for Mac between my iMac and a MacBook Pro, and syncing works well with pCloud. I don't have scrivener iOS version so I can't do tests. HTH. You need to be more cautious with iCloud than with Dropbox as iCloud can be slow in sync'ing files in my experience, and it doesn't giv...

Re: Editing the same project on Mac, Windows, and iOS

I’m a Mac-user. I have been working with my Windows-using collaborator, with her using the v. 3 betas since the first half of 2018 without any problem, other than the occasional "pilot error" of one of us shutting down the computer a bit too quickly. Apart from my Mac version, I have been ...

Re: Adding "lines" to the notes area?

Yes, that's probably a screenshot from the Mac version. I don't know why it hasn't been implemented in Windows 3 (Was it there in Windows 1.9?) but it wouldn't surprise me at all to learn that the necessary code is provided by the Apple development environment and not by Qt.

Re: Scrivener 3 Creating Multiple Backups

Also remember that when you first open a v. 1 project in v. 3, it automatically makes a backup in v. 1 format before converting it to v.3 format.

Re: Scrivener 3 Latex to PDF

Just a suggestion, the Multimarkdown and LaTeX forum would be a better place for this thread, so perhaps a moderator will move it.

You should look for any answers to that question there too.

Re: Can I add a line feed after the header?

@MajorMajor I had the same question you did. Got around it by setting a "Replacement" in the Compile section that replaces <$blank> with a single space (e.g., " " - sans the double-quote marks). Then, in my header, I added a new line below the text and entered: <$name> <$date> <...

Re: Syncing Between Mac and Ios using Sync.com?

I’ve been using Sync.com for years to collaborate with a friend, even though the Sync people claim it is not suitable for complex projects like Scrivener projects. However the answer is that only Dropbox provide the necessary API to allow Scrivener on iOS/iPadOS to access the project directly and sy...

Re: Export one chapter

Without closing your main project, open a new blank project—preferably saved in Dropbox where you can share it with her/him—and then drag the appropriate chapter into the new project. When s/he's read it and added comments whatever, snapshot the chapter in your main project and use "merge proje...
