Saved Searches

I wish you had a way to save search/replace settings, sort of like BB Edit does. There are several common things I search and replace because I dictate rather than type quite frequently. Saved search/replace settings would be nice when I go back to correct my dictated text. For example, my wife's na...

Two-Finger Scrubbing in Media Files

I am starting to use Scrivener to transcript some interviews. I am, of course, doing this in split pane view with my media file open in one pane and the document I am typing in the other. It's going quite well and I am impressed with how it works. I wish Scrivener supported two-finger gestures on a ...

Re: Understanding Scriptwriting Mode and Transcripts

Understanding Scriptwriting Mode and Transcripts

I am interested in this because I have several interviews of relatives, many of whom have passed away, ...
