Re: Scrivener not working on macOS 10.15 Catalina beta.

Catalina is at version 10.15.7 … it came out of Beta a year ago! Are you not meaning BigSur MacOs 11 Beta? Definitely Catalina, not Big Sur, as my Mac does not support the latter. 10.15.7 is the latest official release right now? Then that must have slipped me. As a beta tester on more than one mac...

I am on the Catalina beta too but I have faced no issues with Scrivener.

Re: Scrivener 3, Scrivener for iPad, and changes at apple.

And did you know that for Germans the term "silicon" is a false friend? Because "Silikon" is a German word but it does not mean "silicon" but "silicone"? ("Silicon" is "Silizium", by the way.) That has lead to funny results more than once w...

Re: macOs "Operating aids" -> Text reading / Voice output

After I had read this thread a moment ago I switched voices in the system settings to see—or actually: hear—what happens. And guess what, every new voice I picked was used in Scrivener too, even when activated by the speech menu item. Then I wondered why you could chose a Siri voice and I couldn't. ...

Re: iOS 14 - Heads-up: No way to access non-Apple fonts in Scrivener

Font apps, such as Anyfont, are insisting that Apple changed their API, and that apps which want to access non-Apple-provided fonts must use a new interface. This problem is endemic to all apps that access alien fonts. I am using an, to put it pretentiously, in-house font I once added with *AnyFont...

Re: nvALT replacement?

I had been using Curiota as a note taking app for a while and I quite liked it. Like many others here I wanted an instant-write app, and Curiota allows that. (Well, almost: For whatever reason after hitting the shortcut key the cursor is in the "optional (!) name" field instead of the note...

Re: Virus Attack! or, Backing Up to the Cloud, Google Version

I'm using Tresorit too.

But whatever cloud service you pick—the automatic backup to zip feature of Scrivener and the options to chose when to backup and how many backups you want to keep keeps you from all the hassle once you have set it up.

Re: Virus Attack! or, Backing Up to the Cloud, Google Version

Maybe Google Mail (you are referring to Google Mail , aren't you?) has a problem with the .scriv package format. Why don't you mail an actual .zip file of your project to yourself? You haven't turned off automatic backup of your projects, have you? By default Scrivener backs up zipped projects to a ...

Re: Latest Catalina beta doing something visually weird to Scrivener

Are you sure it isn’t coming up underneath the edge of the window? This resizing bug means that the interior of the window doesn’t match the exterior, so to speak. I’ve run into situations where splits can get lost. Well, the Scrivener window does expand to the right when I click to show the Inspec...

Re: Latest Catalina beta doing something visually weird to Scrivener

Some additional visual weirdness: The editor panes look all okay, split view too, at least on a single monitor. But for "Show Collections" and "Show Invisibles" the word "Show" is displayed over the icons. Even if the toolbar is set to icon only. When you hide the inspe...

Re: Did Bookends stop talking to Scrivener?

I just checked it, and indeed I have allowed Bookends control over Scrivener in the Automation section too. Wether the Automation setting or the Application setting or both are necessary to make CMD-y work I can't tell. But full disk access is not.

Re: Did Bookends stop talking to Scrivener?

I do remember that at some point I faced CMD-y not working too but that was quite some time ago and I found a way to fix it. Since it is so long ago sadly I can't remember what I did to get it going again. But I noticed that you, Mark, mentioned in the linked thread that you allowed both apps full d...

Re: How to NOT store the Scrivener project in Dropbox, on iOS?

The files in the Dropbox folder are of course available offline as it is just a folder on your device that gets synched when you are online again and run Scrivener . When you follow the link provided above and read Keith’s (The Programmer’s) explanation why at the moment there is only a sync service...

Compiling Eats German Umlauts in Style Names

After Compile German umlauts in style names have lost their little dots— Ü becomes U , Ä A , and Ö O . Also ß is converted into an s . What's really nasty about this is that the German word for heading happens to contain an Umlaut— Überschrift . So if one sets up a Compile format to just create a ge...

Re: Is Scrivo Pro For Scriveners a licensed companion to Scrivener?

The Aeon Timeline folks sent out a call for iOS beta testers a few weeks ago. It sounded like Aeon Timeline for iOS will be released soonish.
