Re: Screenplay page count field/column in outliner.

I guess FD just lays out the text on a 'pretend page'? Also, Scrivener knows which elements we have the text in, so 'action characters divided by column width' plus 'dialogue characters divided by column width' plus ....etc, etc. While writing early drafts of drama, it's OK to have guesstimates, but...

Re: Ability to Sync for Collaborative Writing Projects

ADDENDUM: Took a look at GitHUB. Based on the twenty minutes I spent running through their tutorial, I think this is exactly what we need. It should allow us to both work simultaneously and commit and pull changes from the master branch whenever we want to merge our changes together. Does that make...

Re: Github markdown preview?

Hi folks, I've not been able to find examples of this, but figure some folks must be doing it. I want to use Scrivener and Github for my project, and would ideally like to figure out a nice way to take advantage of GitHub's built-in markdown previewing for my collaborators to be able to look at ver...

Re: How do I make erasing text n o t reducing my daily target word count?

Thanks for your thougts, brookter. That's about what I managed to figure out as well after trying a few things with the negatives switch flicked to 'on' The philosophy, whatever it is, seems weird in relation to reality, though. Anyone who has done some longer writing knows that after a while you ar...

How do I make erasing text n o t reducing my daily target word count?

This didn't use to be the case, but the UI for Project Stats/Targets is now somewhat confusing (Stats have tabs, Targets have "buttons" that you have to understand are buttons) so maybe I have done this to myself: If I cut a piece of text from my manuscript, the word count under daily targ...

Re: Collaborating With Scrivener

Not a total redesign to be a tool that has a different focus, just an acceptance that edit conflicts are not just a mistake to be avoided that can be handled as a clumsy error, but rather a regular thing that happens and should have some tools for it. That literally would be enough for me to use it...

Re: Element formats not saved

Many thanks for the reply, and - as always - also many thanks for a fantastic software.

(Now my only lingering wish is to be able to invite cowriters and editor in my document so they can edit or comment. After all, writing - especially tv or radio drama - is a truly collaborative activity! :-) )

Element formats not saved

Many thanks for a great app. Been using it for several commercial projects and now I'm commissioned to write what in the olden days would be a 'radio play' but today is a fictional podcast. :-) As usual, Scrivener is my tool of choice, not the least because of the iOS app so I can write on my iPad o...

Re: Scrivener for iPad

I write all first drafts of feature scripts and fiction in Scrivener for all the obvious reasons, then switch to Final Draft and Pages respectively for polish. Until the last two weeks. Using a case that has a handy backstand and the Apple Mini Bluetooth keyboard, my 'day pack' is so greatly reduced...
