Figured out my problem

Well, I am not insane; I had to Turn On the Scriptwriting mode under the Format menu, and everything appeared and worked great. Once the checkmark appears next to "Script Mode - Screenplay" it was the awesome Scrivener I know... and hope to get my brother to love. But I did go through ever...

What part of Script am I not getting?

I have the Script template, up. I have a Title Page & I have Scene, but what is the point of a template? If it is just to show me what it is supposed to look like, how is that different from a .jpg I can find online? Is there a shortcut I am missing? Please forgive me for being dense, I am tryin...

I just Kindled myself.

As of 11:38 AM, June 21st (the Solstice!) I hit the button and got published. :lol: See my book, Cat 911, here. http://www.amazon.com/Cat-911-Fixing-their-ebook/dp/B002E19MUW/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1245603819&sr=8-10 Now, granted, it's not quite the process I dreamed of; call fr...

Re: Shapewriter for iPod Touch

Well, it never hurts to learn Morse code. However, just wanted to let you know Shapewriter doesn't have anything to do with handwriting. It works by letting you touch the first letter of the word you are after, and then "trace" the typing by moving the finger from one letter to another, un...

Re: Is your computer data safe?

As the unavoidable consequence of upgrading and switching computer systems over the years, multiple copies of basic text is my archive of choice. Paper might outlast me, but I'm sure to put it in a "safe place" and never see it again. I've had flash drives punk out on me, so I only conside...

Re: Cheap, Writing-only Laptops

This is fascinating, since I got along with a fountain pen and a legal pad for quite some time. If there was a way for the words to wind up in a text file without my money or intervention, I believe I would draft that way still. I've often toyed with similar ideas, going so far as to check out some ...

Re: Write or die functionality?

I'm sure it's fun as an exercise, but the last thing I need or want is nagging. In my experience, wishing for external nudging, especially the extreme kind, is just another form of avoidance. In something like this, it would be avoiding thinking about why we are not doing something we should find pl...

Re: Anyone care to review?

Creepy story, John.

Evocative details.

Loaded into my iPod touch with no glitches, and I thought that photo looked great. Only thing was your link back to the blog was missing the second "s" in Wordpress.

Thanks for the shivers!

Re: long time lurker, 1st time poster

How thrilling! I hope your experience is similar to mine; as time goes on, you will find even more cool things to love about Scrivener. One of my funniest experiences was how I raved and raved about Scrivener to my long-suffering husband, who was happy for me, but did not "get it." Until h...

Re: Praise, and how I use Scrivener

Thank you for sharing your challenges, and best wishes for a continuing recovery. A trilogy is such an incredible commitment. My husband struggles with CFS. It's a chronic condition which often affects his concentration. He too finds Scrivener to be an incredible aid to his research and organization...

Re: Help - setting up an author website

Jot makes an excellent point about putting a structure into your website from the beginning. I had a client who needed a professional site for his training and teaching work, and another as a client contact site, and we linked the two with Wordpress on both. He found Wordpress easy to navigate and a...
