Re: Scrivener users, where do you backup your files?

I keep only certain live Scriv projects in my Dbox folder — the ones I want access to on ios Scriv. I have Scriv set to automatically make a zipped backup when I close a project. These are stored on my Mac’s hard drive. I use an external hard drive to back up my mac. (Okay, actually there are two: o...

Re: New search bar behavior is confusing and inconvenient, help?

If the Project Search field (over the Binder area) is already open and has an existing search term in it : 1) If the search field still has focus (you didn’t do anything since typing the search word), type cmd-A to select what is there and then type your new search, OR click the ‘x’ not in the searc...

Re: Exporting Footnotes to Word - Word won't keep lines together

A) At a quick guess, your footnotes are breaking because you are using carriage returns in them in Scriv. When you type footnotes in Word, you need to use a shift-return to make a single paragraph with a visual linebreak. So, you need to do the equivalent in your Scriv footnotes in order to prepare ...

This looks like the odds-on candidate for what altered the total that you saw reported in Project Statistics (in addition to the sections you deleted).

Re: Sticky project note / Post-it / reminder /etc

OMG I assumed that was just a legacy carryover I was carrying forward. Surprised Apple is still distributing that little app. Fun. Can't quite imagine cluttering up my screen that way anymore, but hey for a dedicated use, maybe. Launched the app just now after probably decades -- to find a disturbin...

Re: Syncing Between Mac and Ios using Sync.com?

Scrivener on iOS has a Dropbox sync functionality built into it and it does not offer other options. I don't know about sync.com, but some sync services screw up scrivener projects, because they handle package files poorly (Scriv projects are not single files as they appear to be on macs, but packag...

Anywhere you put <$wc> in your manuscript it will be replaced with the word count on compile.

Re: Compiling script notes while writing a screenplay.

Ah, I see that what I was saying there is probably not applicable to your desired output file format. So, I've got nothing.

Re: Compiling script notes while writing a screenplay.

I have not done what you wish to do, but here are some thoughts that seem relevant... You can create a customized copy of the script compile format of your choice and there are two areas of the compile settings which would seem of interest: 1) For a given section type, you can specify that (in addit...

Re: 'Determiners'

A confusion has slipped into this exchange and put the two of you at cross purposes. I believe Mr. X agrees that ‘yours’ is a pronoun. What he was saying is not a pronoun is ‘your’. Thanks, Von, for your extensive post. My central point stands: X distinguished between the cases of ‘your’ and ‘yours...

Re: Sync to Dropbox freezes at the same file every time

Here are two pieces of advice which might sort something out for you: 1) If you are using the Sync to External Folder function like the original poster did, stop. That is not what that function is for. To get Dropbox to sync a Scriv project to the cloud, all you need to do is put the Scrivener proje...
