Re: Trash, Rename, Split & Compile

1. In an attempt to trash a project I right clicked on it in File, but no option for that. So, how? What do you mean with "in File"? You can right-click on a (closed!) project in the Finder and there is a content menu item to trash the project. Or you could just drag it onto the Trash ico...

Re: iCloud Sync

Hi, I'm using Scrivener for Mac between my iMac and a MacBook Pro, and syncing works well with pCloud. I don't have scrivener iOS version so I can't do tests. HTH. You mention pCloud—which actually exists—and not iCloud. Was that a typo or are you indeed using pCloud? If so, could you give us more ...

Re: Is Scrivener Backup still restricted to DropBox?

True, Dropbox is still the only cloud service that can handle syncing Scrivener projects. On the other hand you can back up (at best zipped) to any folder—which could be a cloud folder too. Then only the file size might cause a problem. It totally makes sense to backup to any cloud service but Dropb...

Re: window snaps down whenever I hit the spacebar

Is typewriter mode enabled? If so disable and see if that changes anything.

Re: Issue copy and pasting code/rich text

Can you pinpoint when something is going wrong—is it while copying or while pasting? When it is the former it is not a Scrivener issue but an Atom issue. Which I suspect because Atom is a cross-platform app that most certainly uses non-macOS native techniques.

Re: Reformatting your standard headline styles

Are you asking about the headers in the editor or in the compiled manuscript? As for the bullet list: You can set a keyboard shortcut for every menu item of any (proper, modern) program in the macOS keyboard settings. Normally you would type the name of the menu item but in case of bullets I'd recom...

Re: Scrivener wont' back up, received a strange message

Re-installing Scrivener shouldn't touch any project file if you are not saving them in Scrivener's support folder. And aren't you backing up your Mac regularly with, say, Time Machine ? Then you will always be able to restore both the actual projects and the backup files. In which format do you save...

Re: Compilation - Selection of Files

I can‘t believe I forgot to mention the probably most simple solution: As Compile only affects the Drafts folder—just move your old books out of it! Into a sub-folder of the Research folder or a new one on the same level as Research and Drafts, call it “Archive”, “Previous Books” or whatever you like.

You could add them to a Collection (called "George", if you like).

Re: Compilation - Selection of Files

The general idea most certainly was to have one project for one text (book, in your case). That would make compiling much easier when you want to exclude or include only certain parts. And not only that, it would help getting the project so big it might become sluggish to handle (depending on the ha...

It is possible, independent from full screen or not. You can find the setting here (click on Choose Texture):

Re: Scrivener for Mac 3.2.2 not moving folders correctly in binder

Files are fine. They obey all commands. But the folders misbehave. If I select “go left” they will go left until they are even with the one above them. Then they drop to the bottom of the list. If they are at the bottom and I select “go up,” they scoot up to the top of the list. If they are at the ...

Re: default font is not working with scrivening mode

I'd like to add to Brookter's comprehensive explanation that scrivening titles have their own font settings (Preferences/Appearance/Scrivenings/Fonts). Which of course isn't a bug either.
