Scrivener limits

I have a project with 7100 items organized in folders. There are the usual text documents, but also a pdf and a Pages document. Some Folders have their own text. The Trash contains many items. I have found the following issues: Collections don’t show all items Drop down menus don’t show all Collecti...

Re: Find documents that do not have keywords?

This works like a dream!

I am wondering, can keywords be batch-applied to the search list? So, if I want "haiku" applied to a non-contiguous list of items in the search list, can I choose Add Keyword (under the gear menu in the Inspector in the Keyword section) and tag them all?

Thanks,

J

Re: Drop-Caps

Scrivener meets you where you are when you are in the process of writing. Scrivener does a phenomenal job of getting words out onto the page and arranged for sense. Layout is not writing.

Not in a collection

Is there a way to create a collection of items not in a collection? This is a search that can be done on MacOS, can Scrivener do it?

Thanks,

Re: Page Numbering/Front Matter/Compile

Re: Pronouns I'm always reminded that "he" and "man" are related and that "man" has alternated over time to refer to males or all the people. Given that, "he" can be used without sexism or misgendering, or whatever the proper term is to avoid, um, misgendering...

Re: How do I create a multi-level bulleted list?

I used the instructions above to make this:

A. Top
B. Mid

How would I insert a blank line between A & B?

Re: Scrivener's manual - skim the fat

It's just my two cents, but I find the idea of a design philosophy in the manual and a style that is personal and sometimes wordy, better than a "just the facts" approach. The Help menu give the facts, the manuals an inviting read that gives me the facts. I'd much rather my students wrote ...

Re: Compile questions

Using no format may make for more versatile output, but absolutely you can format text as you like by hand. As KB says, you needn't use all of Scrivener's features. I find it useful to treat Scrivener this way. It makes it more like a word processor. Do as you will.

Re: What is your experience with Scrivener?

I love Scrivener. I may bitch, but that's on me, and I shouldn't I use it for everything that needs writing and it gets everything I want done. It accommodates my unruly mind and lets me get it in order. Better, it lets me catch those bits that fly by that happen when something else needs to be done...

Re: Titles and bolding

My error was in not clicking on the middle pane in Compile when editing a format. That's where the settings were hiding.

Re: Titles and bolding

Watching the tutorial again and using the Modern settings, I get almost exactly what I want overall and the titles are not in the body, but in the title field.

Titles and bolding

After searching and trying to figure out this myself and asking for help, I'm going try again. I have text in the Editor. The text is formatted as I like. The title for the text is in the title field of the Editor. Everything works fine in the Compile format I use, except the title for the text will...
