Help! Scrivener project corruption: every page is blank

Hello, My husband uses Scrivener on his iPad Pro. He's using Scrivener 2 on his laptop. He never opens his projects on the laptop, therefore, there's no extra back up there. He doesn't use Time Machine either, so that option is out. He also tried Dropbox old versions function, and it didn't work. He...

Re: Cannot import from Word to Mac at all

<snip> I get your point, but this is happening with seven different documents, more than 40 pages long each; four of them that I had already imported successfully. Isolating the problem will be a long road. Oh, believe me, I totally appreciate that. But can you not find a way to give Keith a link t...

Re: Cannot import from Word to Mac at all

I had a problem the other way, making a Compile Format for .docx, which kept failing in the sense that setting it to open automatically in Word gave "file is corrupt" alert, though when the compiled file was opened from the desktop Word said "Do you want to open it anyway?" When...

Re: Cannot import from Word to Mac at all

I'm having a possibly-related problem importing a word document (as .docx or as RTF) that contains numerous comments. The file is a novel manuscript that my editor has annotated extensively—novel runs to 113,000 words, but editor has inserted 524 comments (per Word 16). If I save as RTF without com...

Re: Cannot import from Word to Mac at all

Hello, I have been unable to import large word documents (40 pages and up), full of images, tables, and comments. I'm editing a large book, and I usually export and import the documents back to and from Word, in order to edit on Scrivener (my author only uses Word). I had previously imported succesf...

Re: Styles and Revision Mode

Well, it looks like a bug. I'll wait patiently for a solution on a future update, I guess. Thank you for your wonderful work. Scrivener truly is a remarkable tool.

Styles and Revision Mode

Hello, First of all, contratulations on Scrivener 3. I'm simply delighted. I absolutely love it. Now, I use revision mode a lot, since I use Scrivener for my job as an academic editor. So I have to manage big books, with lots and lots of quotes, learning resources, examples, additional reading, etc....

Spelling mistakes on Spanish menus

Hello,
I use Scrivener in Spanish. Today I noticed that a few menu items are in English. I've made some screenshots to show you. I Hope it helps.

Touch bar customization

I'm getting used to the new Mac Book Pro's touch bar. I was just writing on composition mode, which I love, and I needed to highlight a few words to check back later. I usually double clic on the words to display a contextual menu, so I can choose the highlighting function without abandoning composi...

Re: Adding more than one Dropbox folder to Scrivener for iPad

I don't know if I got it: I would have to share a subfolder from my Dropbox Scrivener folder. Then the other co-writer would have to open this folder and move it, from within Scrivener, to his own Scrivener folder. A couple of years ago, I moved all my shared folders into a new location within my Dr...

Re: IOs Ipad not possible to buy in Argentina

You can buy Scrivener from anywhere in the World, by creating a separated apple ID account set in the USA (or other country where Scrivener is available). You don't even need an US credit card. You can create such an account with an iTunes gift card, that you can even buy on line through Apple.com (...

Re: iThoughts and Scapple

Since we don't know if there's going to exist a version of Scapple for iOS, maybe you should take a look to a little app called Grafio 3. Its shape recognition feature makes it quite attractive and easy to use. You just draw a circle or a rectangle, and it automatically transforms it into a perfect ...

How to export formating presets

Hello, I'm working on a manuscript that I have to edit in two different computers (at home, and at work). Right now my work consists, basically, in applying presets (paragraph styles). But when I open the document on a different computer, all my presets are gone, because they only exist on the compu...
