Re: Compile: what am I doing wrong

Ah, figured out that it's an option/preference... fixed that, so at least it opens with no preference for a project.

Re: Compile: what am I doing wrong

nope. one of the questions i've had is WHY does Scrivener open with the last project? it means you have to go through the backup process, which is very slow in Windows it seems, with every project that's open, even if you didn't choose to open it. so if something gets corrupted when you weren't look...

Re: Compile: what am I doing wrong

Note that it was fine before. I had moved the files to a folder from which to compile them, so I could see them before. Now all gone. Everything in the project.

Re: Compile: what am I doing wrong

Thank you! Not sure what else to say about project being blank. Binder is there, with all file names, no content in the files. Just true of one of the projects. Everything else seems to have come across ugly but intact. I am hoping I will be able to open my nearly dead Mac and reconvert to Scriv 2 f...

Re: Please help! My manuscript is empty!

I've got the same problem. I moved the whole folder. The last time I had this file open, a couple of days ago, it was fine. Now there is no content in any of the files. I can only hope that there is enough life left in the old Mac that I can try reconverting the files to Scriv 2 for Mac and moving i...

Re: Compile: what am I doing wrong

Well, now the whole project seems to be empty of content, which was not the case the other day. This is just great.

Re: Compile: what am I doing wrong

Thank you! I'll try it. One problem is that I'm not seeing an expanded compile options window, just a dialogue asking where I want to put it and in what file format.

Re: What I hope to see

Thanks. I'll try to get to it. It sounds confusing to me running different copies of everything at the same time. I can barely get used to what's on my drive now with all the version names. But maybe next week it won't sound so daunting. I would think the devs would look at this forum as well, since...

Compile: what am I doing wrong

Hi, Trying to compile for the first time in the Windows version. Windows 1.whatever, just bought it a week or so ago. Windows 10, new Surface pro 7. Anyway, not only did the BG colors completely switch to something hideous for no reason from what they opened in based on my actual preference settings...

Re: Questions about Scrivener

Yeah I had a default body style in Scriv3 for Mac that used Cochin, which doesn't exist for Windows unless you buy it and install... Everything came out looking horrible when I opened in Windows, but that's just part of the headache of getting a new machine. In the end I'm sure I'll be pleased.

Re: WIndows 3 Release: My Thoughts

I'd be okay with a different but just as cool version that does what I need in Windows in perhaps slightly different ways. And to say it needs to be on par with Word... Well IMO Scriv for Mac is better than Word, but then again you have to pay a lot more for Office. If you are paying $45 stop compla...

It's so cheap, I can't imagine caring whether I had to pay again.

Re: Scrivener Windows/Mac Compatibility

Thanks. I was dealing with a dying Mac and trying to decide what to do... did decide on a Surface and hope Win3 catches up soon!
