Re: How to insert my signature?

You could actually create a vector graphic signature and use an .eps file, I think. If it works suitably, it might give you a cleaner look. Absolutely; mine is an EPS. But the OP only has an iPad and no computer, So creating a vector signature would depend on what apps she’s got, etc. :) Mark I’m g...

Re: General Projects versus Individual Projects

The way you are working sounds like a good way to go for now. As Katherine says, no worries about it on the software side. Somewhere down the line you will start to feel the need for some separation and then you can do that. It is easy to move stuff you want to hive off into another project via drag...

Re: typing so that cursor stays fixed and characters print to the right

These solutions wouldn't have text flowing to the right, though. It would flow to the left, behind the cursor. For a language that writes right to left, setting the paragraph alignment oppositely would do just as the OP asked. For left-to-right languages like English, you are right — but what it wo...

Re: typing so that cursor stays fixed and characters print to the right

Just setting the paragraph alignment to the opposite of the default for the writing order of your language should do the trick (as already mentioned above). This is rather a nice idea. A life hack for writers.

Re: Wrote my entire novel in Scrivenings....

I chose to write the entire thing in Scrivenings mode. Not only that but I have folders for each chapter and then the Scrivenings sheet on that folder. If I am understanding correctly, one of the things you have discovered is that you typed some of your text directly into the body text area of your...

Re: Sharing a project between two different users of Scrivener

Can you just upload a project to .pages on a Mac and collaborate there. Then save the revised collaboration back to Scrivener? You certainly could not upload the Scrivener project file and expect to be able to open it and work on it in some other software. You might, however, in various ways, contr...

Re: can’t remove line break between documents

Accolades for your perseverance. L&L should update their provided compile formats so that none relies on the Document Separator default. The term should appear in each, even if only to infirm the default. This would be the swiftest and most direct way to prevent anyone else having your same trou...

Re: Scrivener shuts down on me (impossible to open)

HEEEELP, I can not open the Scrivener application anymore. Each time it tells me that another copy of the project is open on the computer. No matter what I do (save a copy or continue) when I try to open the file Scrivener shuts down on me. What can I do; I have like 500 pages that I can not access...

Re: Can't Enter a Carriage Return

When you hit carriage return a new paragraph is begun and is given the same styling as the previous paragraph — because this is usually what you would want to have happen. But in this case it means you are carrying forward some paragraph styling you got accidentally in the first place and do not wan...

Re: Dear L&L DropBox and IOS

Dropbox is not user friendly. This makes no sense to me. You must be going at this DB thing in the wrong way. Dropbox runs in the background on your computer. You literally never need to interact with the software directly. It watches a designated folder on your harddrive and syncs whatever you put...

Re: How to set paragraph indent relative to font size

Still, Mark, the concept of an em has an obvious extension to the Chinese typeface — it just turns out to be the character width of every character. Presumably this is actually what you would get in CSS if you use em units to scale things over a Chinese base font. The OP was hoping for a way to set ...

Re: How to set paragraph indent relative to font size

This is not directly pertinent, but the question made me wonder why paragraph indent settings aren’t specifiable in ems — which would be font and font-size relative. Off-hand this would seem like it would be typographically desirable. Now I am going to have pull up InDesign to see if ems-indenting i...

Re: is there a way to expand collapse only the first level documents or folders in the Binder (Research)?

Yup. From the manual: “ Collapse All to Current Level ⌃⌘0 Working in a similar fashion to Collapse All, this command will collapse the entire outline below the currently selected item's level. Thus if you if have an outline that has six levels of depth, and select a folder on level 3, running this c...
