Re: "The file can not be opened it doesn't exists! " Error message!

I have this same error, but I have not had the data loss. I store the file that has shown the error on my Mac only. Closing and re-opening the file usually makes things return to normal.

Maybe this helps track the issue.

Re: Working with large *.scriv folders

I mean a mix of larger files with smaller ones.

Re: Working with large *.scriv folders

I'm on the Mac and see the same. I have 5300 files in one project. Splitting the files down doesn't work--that's where I started. A mix works, though.

Re: moving keywords between large documents

To clarify, I have a project with 1000+ document with keywords. I want to copy the keywords for those documents from one project to another project with the same documents, but without keywords, so I don't have to go file by file and add them. I have tested this and find no way to copy keywords from...

Re: Styles do not apply

I have been able to select all similar style and make the changed I wanted. I thank you all for your help. Solutions have been found! I would like to point out KB has always indicated no one need use all of Scrivener's tools. So if I wanted to style everything by hand, flying in the face of the new ...

moving keywords between large documents

Say I had document A and document B both of which were viewed in Scrivenings mode. Say also that I had copies of document A and document B, but the difference is they have keywords. If I wanted to copy the keywords to the first set of documents from the second, could I copy and paste them? Would tha...

Re: Styles do not apply

The reason is that "Styles do not apply" and the issue is definitively one of size after my latest efforts. Section types & layouts are not the issue, nor styles, just that my file is too damn big.

I broke it in to 100 doc chunks and everything works as expected.

Re: Styles do not apply

Somehow, my response didn't post, so: You all have added to my understanding. I can't get Scrivener to consistently apply styles via the Select Similar Styles option likely because my file is large, 1000pp. altogether. Whenever it doesn't work, I have to edit the documents in the project by hand. I'...

A feature request (bc I don't know where else to put this)

It would be useful if, in the Binder or in the compiler, if a set of selected documents could be saved as a preference. Example: Given documents A-Z in the Binder, I could save the selection A, Q, S. Could then re-use the selection without having to manually do it. I think this used to be a feature ...

Re: Styles do not apply

I have solved the issue. It is one of size. 5117 documents is too large. Breaking them up into groups of 100 allows Scrivener to do as I ask. Making 140 actions is better than 10,234.

Thanks for your efforts.

Re: Styles do not apply

So, what you need to do, is to highlight one of these 'unstyled' headings and choose Select Similar Formatting — this will pick up the ones that aren't already styled — and then apply the correct style to them in the normal way. You'll have to do it for each heading, but it's a fairly quick process....

Re: Styles do not apply

The titles are in the body of the document. I am trying to select all the titles by selecting their styles and changing them and also the same for the body. What is Select Similar Styles (in the Styles panel) for, if not exactly what I am trying to do? I find the new Sections and Layouts bewildering...

Re: Styles do not apply

I am am assembling the text I wish to change as a screening which includes all documents. I am using the styles panel to select all similar styles, first for the titles, then for the body text. I want the body text to have these styles I have defined. When I apply a new style of mine to the selected...

Re: Styles do not apply

Part of the issue: When the focus is on the Binder, the document in the Editor shows no style for the selected doc. So I don't always see that there is a style. I still have unsettled docs which should be, however.
