Re: Old projects in Dropbox and new projects not being found by Spotlight

Please read the entirety of my 2 posts. I have macOS 10,14.3 The Dropbox location was my initial clue that something was wrong—none of my projects stored in Dropbox are being indexed. The real problem seems to be that the project Spotlight Metadata is being changed from so that project appears to b...

Re: Old projects in Dropbox and new projects not being found by Spotlight

What version of Mac OS do you have? Spotlight correctly indexes and locates all Scrivener projects on my system, both old and new, stored in Dropbox and not.

Re: Old projects in Dropbox and new projects not being found by Spotlight

I opened it from the Finder and within a 6 minutes the project's Content Type changed from com.literatureandlatte.scrivener3.scriv to com.apple.alias-file I checked the project setting ↑ using OrangeCard (App Store) This change prevents the pr...

Old projects in Dropbox and new projects not being found by Spotlight

All of my projects in Dropbox have Spotlight Metadata → Content Type set to: com.apple.alias-file , but they are not Aliases. Screenshot of Finder (3-5-19, 5-10-34 PM).png I just created a new Blank project from the Project Templates and saved it to my Documents folder. It has the same. com.apple.al...

Re: Two devices open at the same time

What about printing the relevant project parts to a PDF and then opening the PDF in split view e.g., Notability?

Keyword sorting in the projects keyword panel

From The Scrivener manual ↓ Below Figure 10.10: The Project Keywords panel shows all keywords in the project The manual says: Keywords are always sorted alphabetically in this window But that is not happening in my projects. In my projects they seem to be arranged based date and time added. Is that ...

Re: Text Replace/With problem

Bobembry, I'd still be interested to know why you singled out the nsservicescache file and so on. Are these also sync-related? My problem is related to Services shortcuts being spontaneously reset to some "default" configuration. This configuration is connected to Preference/pbs.plist whi...

Re: Text Replace/With problem

Thanks AmberV. I will try your suggestion and remove the sync for now to see if it goes away. I realise this isn't a Scriv-specific question, but thought it worth seeing if anyone was having similar probs. I did post on the Apple forum, and aside from some advice about deleting this or that folder ...

Re: crash at startup on El Capitan 10.11 Beta (15A263e)

Fantastic news! And thank you for investigating and finding the root cause. And that makes perfect sense - I wish I'd thought of it. Given that it's a system preferences file for the current user account, no doubt some of Scrivener's window set-up was accessing it by virtue of certain AppKit framew...

Next and Previous documents in QuickReference windows

When working in a QuickReference window it would be very handy to be able to Go To Next ⌥⌘↓ and Previous documents ⌥⌘↑

Thanks
