Which Files Do I Need To Sync?

I'm a bit of a computer geek and have about four computers on which I may work on a writing project. I also have a Synology NAS server and use SynologyDrive (works similar to OneDrive or iCloud, but personally owned/more private) to sync the writing folders between computers. However, there's one co...

Separators? (Horizontal Lines?)

Very new Scrivener user here (first project). When writing in LibreOffice I use horizontal lines freely to signal changes in scene or POV. However, I haven't found the corresponding command to do so in Scrivener. Also, I might like to split these chapters up into subchapters to help organize and rea...

Re: How To Install Scrivener for Single User?

I think I found the answer on this site: https://www.addictivetips.com/windows-tips/install-an-app-for-a-single-user-on-windows-10/ Rather than installing the program in the C:/Program Files directory, which is accessible to all users, I created a subfolder in my C:/Users/username/AppData/Local fold...

Re: First Time Author Seeking Recommendations for Editor

Well, while I didn't get a reply here I found someone to give my manuscript a professional critique... Imogen Howson . While a little expensive, she looks to have the background which I need and she seems enthusiastic about my project. She has my manuscript now and I'm expecting to hear back from he...

How To Install Scrivener for Single User?

I installed the trial version of Scrivener on my home computer last week, and I'm considering purchasing a license for the Windows version. The license terms permit the software to be installed on a computer at work, but only for the use of the purchaser (which is fair). I have access to a computer ...

First Time Author Seeking Recommendations for Editor

Last night I finished the final chapter in the first draft of my novel manuscript, Guardian Angel . I only started working on the characters and situations in, oh, about mid-1983! I'd like to find a professional editor to help polish it. Ideally, I'd like to find someone based in the UK (I'm US base...

Re: Laser Printer Recommendation?

Now that I'm back at home, I can add some numbers to my earlier rather gushing comment. I just printed out a 208 page full-color PDF file; it was the guidebook for a video cooking course I'm taking (shameless plug for The Great Courses). Anyhow, the 208 page file printed out in under 12 minutes, dou...

Re: Scrivener or Manuskript?—Help me decide.

Thanks for replying, Katherine. How is Scrivener at importing from and exporting to LibreOffice (.odt) and, possibly, WordPerfect (.wpd)? I wouldn't use Microsoft Word on an ongoing basis even if they paid me.

Re: Laser Printer Recommendation?

I know that this is an old, old OP. At the risk of being accused of thread necromancy (in my defense, someone just posted to it before me), I have to say that I am delighted with the performance of the Xerox WorkCentre 6515 DN which I purchased two years ago: ⋅ It's a commercial-grade prin...

Recommendations for a book scanner?

I have some bound issues of Railway Age magazine from the 1950s which I'd like to scan. They're printed on a non-standard oversize (9" by 12") page format and have 26 weekly issues in each volume...over 1000 pages; very hard to open flat. I've had some success with using the book scanner a...

Scrivener or Manuskript?—Help me decide.

I'm working on a novel (24 chapters so far; starting Act III) and I recently received a recommendation for Scrivener. I don't object to the pricing; if I go with the competition I'll probably make a similar donation to support continued development. What's coloring my decision is the fact that I gen...
