More Modular Inspector

Not a pressing suggestion, but thought I'd post it anyway: It would be nice if the Inspector were more modular. I'd like to be able to choose the top and bottom inspector tools instead of the already-arranged five groups that are available. For instance, I'd like to have Synopsis at the top, but ins...

Re: Question about using "Import and Split..." for importing screenplays

MimeticMouton, makes sense. Highland can also export a script as .txt, but I think I'll have to do the trick Brookter and you recommended to get the scenes into Scrivener the way I want.

Re: Question about using "Import and Split..." for importing screenplays

Me again. I realized I can turn off Script mode and then apply a simple Style to the imported documents in scrivenings mode. The only issue is that when a Fountain document is imported into Scrivener there are no blank paragraphs between elements. So, when I apply the Style, the paragraphs aren't se...

Re: Question about using "Import and Split..." for importing screenplays

Brookter, thanks. I hadn't noticed that when I select a Fountain file, Scrivener gives me the option of splitting into scenes. That's useful. However, I like to write in Fountain, but without the automatic formatting. I find it's simpler that way. I wish I could import the Fountain screenplay but ha...

Question about using "Import and Split..." for importing screenplays

Hi. I'm wondering if it's possible to import a screenplay and automatically split the screenplay into multiple documents in the binder, so that each scene is its own document. In order to split the screenplay fully, Scrivener needs to split using the separators "INT." and "EXT." ...

Quick way to hide documents in Scrivenings mode?

Hi. I haven't used Scrivener in a while, I have version 3.1.4. I have a a few questions: When I have a folder selected in the Binder and I'm viewing its documents in Scrivenings mode, is there a way to temporarily hide some of those documents? For instance, if I'm writing a screenplay and have one d...

Re: Quick suggestion: Hoist Binder in contextual menu in Binder

I think it could go under "Ungroup."

But creating a keyboard shortcut does work as an alternative solution.

Quick suggestion: Hoist Binder in contextual menu in Binder

Hi. Just a quick suggestion:

It'd be nice if Hoist Binder were a menu option when right-clicking on a folder in the Binder. It seems to me that's the natural place for it.

Updated Links for Writers section of website?

Just a suggestion for Literature and Latte to update the Links for Writers section. I know, for instance, that there are a number of new interesting Mac screenwriting apps: Fade In and Highland. I'm also guessing there have been some changes to more general writing apps as well. I love Scrivener, bu...

Re: How to stop two dashes from being turned into an em dash?

nontroppo, that worked! Thank you. I haven't used Scrivener for a number of months so I forgot about those settings.

Re: How to stop two dashes from being turned into an em dash?

I should add, in the Keyboard>Text preferences I unchecked "Use smart quote and dashes" but that didn't make a difference.

How to stop two dashes from being turned into an em dash?

Hi. This is as much a general Mac question as a Scrivener question. Somewhere, on my Mac, I have a setting which changes two dashes into an em dash. So when I type two dashes, then hit space, the two dashes are replaced by an em dash. This happens in most applications, including Scrivener. However, ...

Quick question: how do I move location of Scratch Pad files?

Hi. Today I moved all my Scrivener documents to my Dropbox folder. I had been using Dropbox for some Scrivener documents but today I decided to put all of them there. However, I wasn't sure how to move my Scratch Pad files. Right now they are in Documents>Scrivener Projects. I must have chosen that ...

Re: Excluding a document from compiling in binder

Actually, I just realized I can pretty much already do what I want: I created a Label called "Do Not Compile" with a red color. Then I assigned that Label to some of my documents; I also had "Use Color Label in iCons" turned on so those documents were tinted red in the binder. Th...
