Can you explain why the 1/2 part of 9 1/2 :) A typical NiAD is held in October and October 2019's one was NiAD 9 , but desperate times call for desperate measures call for desperate (rational) numbers labelling desperate NiADs for desperate people runni...

Re: Outline complete; can I view it while writing the novel?

You can lock either editor view (so it’s content does not get changed out when you click around in the binder). If you have been using scriv’s outline function to outline, then your Binder is already a representation of your outline, so there is that too. I generally am setting in with a mix of bind...

Re: Removing inline annotations

Nice.

Maybe you can still craft whatever standoutishness you want with that by defining a Struck! character style which has enabled the color background and outline feature. If you are lucky, Silverdragon's great suggestion for removal at compile time via the strike-through attribute will still work.

Re: Removing inline annotations

Thanks, Xiamenese and GR. The purpose of applying the annotation (not a comment) in this way is to remove the text during the compile stage. So I very much would like to include the footnote, and to have the style based on an annotation. But it does not need to be based on annotation in order to re...

Re: Removing inline annotations

zsteir, The behavior you describe with your “annotation”-paragraph style is quite odd. It sounds to me like you have encountered a bug — that you then can’t unapply the style or overwrite it with another. Why don’t you make your own style from scratch (it is easy to set it to put that line around th...

Re: Feedback on opening paragraph please

Small point, I guess I would drop the paragraph break, since your following line adverts to a particular phrase used at the tail of the paragraph,* rather to the intuitive or salient “upshot” of that paragraph. So, you would have something like this: On the morning of Ascension Day, the Fool worried...

Re: Feedback on opening paragraph please

You don’t tell us why you feel unsatisfied. It certainly tells us a good deal about the sort of story we are about to hear, both in terms of fantasy conceit and setting, as well as the narrative manner. A) Remove ‘that’ from the last sentence of the first paragraph. It is unnecessary there — a merel...

Re: Specific template for 'Research' folder

It would be very helpful if we can make a template specific for the 'Research' folder. That way we can define a format we use to collect our notes and ideas, and keep using the writing template for the actual writing process. It would be interesting to know more particularly what you had in mind. B...

Re: Is there an undo typing feature on IOS?

There is an UNDO typing button on the standard keyboard on iOS. How much that will help you just depends on what you've been doing (esp in a complex app like Scriv). -gr This bears repeating: there is already an undo button on your iOS keyboard. The undo key appears to the right of the space bar on...

Re: Writing History, but for whole notes/documents

Sounds like you hit upon the right answer to your question at the end there! True. But this is not possible in the iOS version. Furthermore, if I have a tonne of documents nested under a bunch of parent files, then edited files will not line up in order because of the other unedited files under the...
