Re: Help! I can't drag and drop text

Well, Ahab has the solution. What you have to do is simply hold the button on your mouse down until the cursor changes from an arrow to whatever else it becomes and then you can drag and drop. The problem is evidently a lag in the mouse's understanding of what you want. It's a simple fix and so far ...

Re: Help! I can't drag and drop text

Thanks, Mark - I did know that, and tried six ways to Sunday to get it to work. I finally quit Scrivener and then reopened it in another user account, where it seemed to work perfectly. So I quit again, went back to the original user account, reopened Scrivener and voila - solved. Probably a speck o...

Re: Help! I can't drag and drop text

Somehow I have solved the problem. Don't ask me how. Scriv is now workable again. Whew.

Help! I can't drag and drop text

Hello Keith/all -- I have risen from the depths, not having been on here for some years due to various upheavals. Now I've upgraded my Scrivener, bought Scapple, and embarked on a new project (thank you, Jason, for the excellent refresher tutorial!). BUT Here's my (I hope) simple problem: I can no l...

Re: Hi folks, I'm back....

How lovely to see(?) you all!! I've spent the entire morning opening a new user account on my iMac for this project, and now I can't load up Scrivener there because my name and serial number are apparently invalid. My guess is this is because I shared Scriv with my kids when they were home, but neit...

Hi folks, I'm back....

I doubt anyone remembers me from the dinosaur years I used to frequent this forum. Vic-K, Jaysen? Anyhow, much water under the bridge and family tragedy I won't go into in public, but I've dusted off Scrivener and hope to start a new project, a memoir for a client. Can't go into too much detail here...

Look carefully at that tiger's deflated little body. That is a RUG he is feeding. Ignorant ape. :roll:

Re: What state should a first draft be in?

I quote Hemingway (aside from the fact that he shot himself--probably because someone got hold of one of his first drafts--this is what I remember best of the man): "First drafts are sh*t." He didn't use the asterisk. I wholly agree with him. Not even my office bunny gets to see my first d...

Re: Don't ever give up writing

Well...Ange, after reading one of the emails, got up, and as she walked away, said, "Jesus, that woman can write!" I agreed with her, and told her it's because you write from your heart. Tell her the chocolates are in the mail, Vic. :wink: And thanks for my morning picker-upper beverage.

Don't ever give up writing

It's not worth the agony of trying to get back into it. A Canadian writer I once studied remarked in an interview that she would begin a new book "when the pain of writing became less than the pain of not writing." How many times in my life have I gone through that particular stage? I had ...

Not HERE, Vic! This is a respectable thread and it's still early a.m. here. Keith, take this below for us, will you, love?

Re: Writing a novel with Scrivener - David Hewson's new ebook

Thanks, Dave. :-) I'm scrabbling back, slowly, with Keith and now David's unwitting help. I'll take this below when my fingers & grey matter loosen up a bit. And when Vic gets my martini down off the top shelf and dusts it off.

Re: Writing a novel with Scrivener - David Hewson's new ebook

I am loving this book - er-- ebook. Thank you, David! I'm 57% of the way through. GRIN. I''m pretty familiar with the original Scriv, but I haven't had much opportunity to explore Scriv 2.0, so this is a welcome introduction. But what I've found even more helpful is the built-in scalpel factor - as ...

Re: Ugh

Well done! That's great progress, Kevin.
What's the story on the house?
I too have been AWOL for a bit, and was drawn back by your post. :)
