run Scrivener from usb stick

Hi, on campus, I work a lot with the university provided iMacs. Unfortunately, they won't let me install my apps on them, so I tried to run scrivener from a usb stick. It asks me to register the software or else, but apart from this it worked, although it was a little bit slow. I hope the evaluation...

bzzzzzzzzzzt - a bug? A minor issue with footnotes: When I import footnotes from word, they appear in scrivener, but with added spaces at the beginning of each footnote. This can become annoying after re-pasting the text into word, because you'd have to delete all these spaces in word. Nevertheless:...

import word footnotes

Importing a word document currently results in a scrivener text without footnotes - or they are at the end of the text, without any relation to their original place. Whenever I write a paper, I (have to) make the final layout in word, often changing footnotes, even correcting errors in the last minu...

Hi bitjungle, maybe your project could benefit from this idea: As you have already scanned your documents, you could download a trial copy of DevonThink Pro Office, import all the picture files and convert them tho searchable pdfs. Even if you'd decide not to buy DTPO, you would still end up with al...

full screen without full-screen-mode

I like scrivener's full screen mode. Sometimes, however, this combination is more convenient: - Isolator as a black backdrop (unlike the backdrop app, it did not crash so far) - if you still hate the menu bar try MenuShade to shade out the menu bar - checking "Hide Others" (command-alt-h) ...

You can then see which you like best by comparing them side by side, and move the documents back again if the first version worked best. thanks for the suggestion, but in a long document with multiple texts, I don't think I could find back to the originlal order anyway. Probably it would be more ef...

Add life update for "Edit scrivenings"

selecting multiple notes and editing them with the "edit scrivenings"-feature already useful, but if you change the edited text snippet's order while you are writing in this mode, you have to select all the snippets again (an press the edit scr. button) in order to see the changes you've m...

I'm still having to go through the text, and apply my semantic-based "Styles" to the book titles, transliterated words, etc. for book-titles in scrivener, have you tried the bookends-method described in the first post of this thread ? As for the "Styles"-problem, I think you can...

addition: you can find the paragraph style for the footnotes (after the import, in Mellel) by inspecting the paragraph descriptions in the replace formats menu. The default footnote format, that scrivener exports, has a one-line-spacing, the rest has two lines line-spacing. When you replace characte...

talazem, I just tried this and it worked: Although Mellel did not display the paragraph style as a "footnote"-style, by assigning a particular paragraph style in the "replace styles" dialogue (the one with the smaller font) with my default footnote style, the text got changed, al...

another solution in DT is to browse yor database before writing and replicate everything of interest into a folder for the sub-chapter (keyboard shortcut).this way, it is possible to digest material without obstructing creativity too much - actually, a mess can be helpful to some extent
