Re: Syncing with Adobe Creative Cloud

Have you looked into Resilio Sync Home/Individual version? It's P2P, so there's no outside server. You specify a shared sync folder, and it automagically keeps it synced between your devices. It doesn't sync from within Scrivener, but as you make changes on one device, it syncs with the other device...

Re: Hero's Journey Template

That's very cool of you. A couple of notes about the template: • You're missing a beat at the beginning. I guess it would be beat zero - The Ordinary World. Hero's Journeys generally show us the world in which the Hero is living, before the call to adventure comes. • Just a note for those who want t...

Re: Paste as separate notes

Occasionally I have a block of text containing multiple paragraphs, it would be convenient to paste each paragraph into a separate note — stacked. Blank lines would have to be removed before the paste. You could do this with Keyboard Maestro. It would take some work, so you'll probably have to ask ...

Re: Songwriting

I've got this working on a Mac with an iPhone. It takes a little prep, but once you have it set up, it works like a charm. You'll need: * A Mac * An iPhone or iPad * RecUp for iOS * Yoink for Mac * Dropbox account (can be free version) * Keyboard Maestro for Mac (can also be done with Hazel or Apple...

Re: About creating a script format

I suspect this won't work, because Scrivener is using Apple Text Frameworks. It sees each element as a separate paragraph, which is customary in screenplay format. If you're not using it already, you might look into Keyboard Maestro for the shortcuts. You can use it to trigger complex actions using ...

Re: Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

Has anyone had any success trying to sync with a different method, like iCloud? It doesn't work the same way as Dropbox, but I've had success using Resilio Sync . It creates synced folders on multiple Macs, iphones and ipads and keeps them sync'ed without a central server using P2P technology. It w...

Re: Scrivener project launcher

I'm on a Mac. I use an enhanced spotlight search app called HoudahSpot. It lets you save searches into templates in a menu. I also use Keyboard Maestro for automation, so I can have a list of all my Scrivener projects at the touch of a button.

Re: Shorten screenplay feature

FWIW, margin cheating is a poor solution for shortening a screenplay. If any buyer is seriously interested in your script, one of the first things they do is send the script to a script typing service/department and have it reformatted to their approved specifications. That will tell them the true p...

Re: Scrivener changes elements in Scriptwriting mode

I'm on a Mac, so what follows are just suggestions until someone from L&L replies: Check the Script Format Settings in the document with problems. Make sure the "tab on empty line" for Action and Dialogue is set to Character instead of General Text. Also check the General Text format s...

Maybe it's a difference in Windows. I suggest contacting L&L tech support.

Re: Importing Screenplay and Splitting By Scene

First, make sure you are exporting from WriterDuet to FDX format. If your file doesn't end with an .fdx extension, Scrivener won't know it's a screenplay. When you select your FDX file in the Import and Split dialog box, the "Final Draft separator element" will appear. It's set to "Sc...
