Re: Getting images into Scapple

For those that use LaunchBar, there is a super handy command to Copy File Contents (⌥⌘C), and an even more handy command to Copy and Paste File Contents (⇧⌥⌘C), which dumps the pixels of the selected file directly into Scapple (or whatever program is in the foreground).

Re: Will iOS Scriv Work in iPad OS?

And are they building an RTF engine from scratch that is capable of handling the breadth of formatting the PC and Mac versions of Scrivener makes use of?

Re: Scrivener Manual shows errors for pictures

Have a look through the Read Me provided at the very top of the binder—in particular the subsection named “Restoring Missing Images”. :) They are not included because not everyone will be interested in compiling it, and they would add 40mb to the download.

Re: Preserve italics markdown-style when syncing to plain text

I go through phases like that as well, and one of the nice things about Scrivener is that it takes a piecemeal approach to Markdown. You can go all in and use nothing but syntax, even avoiding features like footnotes and heading generation if you want. But I’d say that’s probably a rarer way of usin...

Re: Preserve italics markdown-style when syncing to plain text

Well you can’t disable RTF (and once you start looking into what these tools can actually add to the workflow, you might not want to), but absolutely—it has had integration since version 1.0, before Markdown became common. 3.0 really upped the stakes in my opinion. It has extensive designs for worki...

Re: Preserve italics markdown-style when syncing to plain text

It may not be your cup of tea, but Scrivener is in fact Markdown-friendly, in that it can be used to compose in Markdown and compile to several types of output. The options are broadened if you install Pandoc, which will give you access to high quality DOCX conversion. Refer to Chapter 21 of the use...

Re: justification in Compile

One possibility is that the oddly centred text is inadvertantly styled, and that style is being adjusted to centre alignment by the Manuscript (Times) Format. Check the Format Bar in these sections, and make sure all body text is set to “No Style”, to allow the compiler to set the text according to ...

Re: *Current* Compatibility between Mac and Windows

Just to be clear, collaboration is a back and forth thing with Scrivener anyway, you won’t both be opening the project at the same time and working on it together like Google Docs or something. So the two extra steps you’d be taking to receive an update and then send one would be the whole of the di...

Re: Can't get Outliner to remember columns

Did you try the checklist I sent a link to? I think that should fix the problem, especially if it is only one project that is acting this way.

Re: *Current* Compatibility between Mac and Windows

If your serial number begins with "SCRIV" then you should be able to unlock it. The only folks that won't be able to use 2.9 are those that bought Scrivener after June 26. If you're in that group, you'll need to use the export feature.

Re: T.O.C. behaving weird on insert

This particular feature you are using makes use of tab stops to align the page numbers to the right, and to draw the dashed line between them and the title. It looks to me as though you have some titles that are short enough that the tab inserted between the title and the page number falls before th...

Re: *Current* Compatibility between Mac and Windows

I know in the past it was recommended that Mac users use Scrivener 2.9 to work with a Windows computer, but that no longer seems possible for new users. That should still be a viable way of working. What troubles did you run into when attempting to use 2.9? (Granted, next year with 10.15 that will ...

Re: A Quick Question on Writing History

There isn’t a way to do that in the front end, but the file that stores this information can certainly be safely deleted. With the project(s) closed, go into the package, and under the Files subfolder, trash the “writing.history” file. Clean slate!
