Re: Searching labels

The answer is to make a Smart Collection — which is just a matter of saving your search and giving it a name, like “To Do”. After that, just tap on that smart collection and voila! Labels and smart collections make a great team. Does it count as granting your wish if the granting predates the wishin...

Re: So... how does Novel-in-a-Day work?

I don’t know if this is helpful but I can report how I have learned what I’ve learned about the process. The stuff you have posted on your site about plotting taught me a great deal about how you think about genre and use scapple while plotting out an idea. Between that and actually looking at how t...

Re: ** KEEP ON TOP option (please add now)

In Scriv on the Mac, this is a (switchable) feature of the Scrivener’s scratchpad window. Given there is basic feature parity, you might check if this is likewise so of the scratchpad in Win Scriv.

Re: How to make separate folders for back-up and sync in Dropbox?

Part of the story is this: I am thinking those files with 'Backup' in the title are safety copies of older Scriv projects. For example, when you open in Scriv 3.x a project created with Scriv 2.x, it will first create a safety duplicate ("Backup") of the project before converting the proje...

Re: Formatting and 'pages'

You might also want to seriously consider breaking that splitting your text into useful chunks. Keeping the whole thing in one long doc (if that is indeed what you were indicating) sort of defeats many of the happy wonders of Scrivener. You can split your doc at its natural joints and still see them...

Re: Writing a Cookbook using Scrivener

Suppose each document contains either a photo followed by a recipe (or vice versa), or just a photo or just a recipe — and formatting the recipe text portions to your own specification. Now suppose you compile so a page break is inserted before each document. Now you have at least the basic framewor...

Re: Syncing with Adobe Creative Cloud

I work between an iMac, iPhone, and PC. Dropbox works between all three, and I want to know if Creative Cloud functions just as easily. Many cloud sync services do not work well with “packages” and can corrupt Scriv projects. This is the fundamental reason Dropbox is the sync solution L&L uses ...

Re: Hidden placeholders associated with elements

Not my area, but is what you are describing something beyond working in Scriptwriting mode set to (one of the) Comic Book script formats?

Re: Controlling where new documents are added

If you click on a doc in the Binder to select it, your new doc — you could just hit return at that point to create the new doc — will be created right below it. (If you click on a folder in the binder, your new doc will be added to the end of the list of docs in that folder.)

Re: Trouble selecting text using trackpad

You might test it in Apple’s TextEdit app which has the same underlying text engine as Scrivener. That would help narrow down the location of the issue.

Re: Can't delete page break I never put in - it moves to other documents

It would be interesting to see what the editor show at that point in the script, and what the script element types are registering as right in there — dialogue and then...? Anything to see there? Is this specific to this script/project or does it happen whenever you are using this scriptwriting form...

Re: How can I reset the page for no indentations?

P.S. Changing the Scriv preference for default paragraph format will not alter the format of existing paragraphs.Also, if you just want to change the default format of paragraphs for that oarticular project, you can do this too, under Project > Project Settings : Formatting.

Re: How can I reset the page for no indentations?

This depends on where the paragraph indentations are coming from — you might be speaking of paragraph indentation you are seeing in the Editor area, or you might mean paragraph indentations that are appearing when you Compile to output. If the former, one way to proceed would be to change the defaul...
