Re: Timelines ??

I use Dia: http://live.gnome.org/Dia use the UML stick figures to name each character and then yse the line tool to connect them to a location. give each character a different colour and off you go. Personally I use the class stereotype icon for locations and change it to a control, boundary or enti...

The code on the winners page got updated last year when the initial one expired in May. It sounds like you're using that original, expired code. [/quote]
Nah, I was using the generic NANOWRIMO - I didn't win last year

Re: NaNo code problem (code isn't working)

I get a message telling me the code has expired - I'm trying to pre-order the normal scriv, not the educational version.

Re: Keyword colours pants!

There are excellent random number generators out there. They have been around since the 50s I should think. With, err, due respect, I never said otherwise; all I said was that hopefully the problem could be fixed by changing the seed. If not, then sure, change the generator, but if you can achieve ...

Re: Keyword colours pants!

Or, it's just the fabled Really Random Isn't Random Enough argument. In a truly random system you might very well get 2,000 blue chips in a row. It would be odd, but random doesn't mean variety. So sometimes a little forced lack of randomness can make a human feel as though the result is more rando...

Re: 026 - Open in External Editor not working

Ok, I'm home now & have checked this. I can't replicate your issue.
It works fine for me on a fully patched Vista Home premium machine. Fresh 026 Scriv installed to default directory (as Admin), so you could be right about your install issue.

Re: 026 - Open in External Editor not working

I haven't tried this in earlier versions so I don't know if it's a new problem. But right-clicking on a PDF, image, or audio file in the Research folder and selecting Open in External Editor, or selecting it and clicking Control-F5, does not work on my computer. That bug was supposed to be fixed a ...

Re: LEE'S UPDATE - BETA 026

Yes, the tutorial needs a good overhaul in other respects as well, as you may have noticed, since it was created many betas ago and Scrivener has grown a lot since then. We'll be sure the header/footer is working as well. ;) Yeah, I know there are lots of problems with it, but most of them are cove...

Re: LEE'S UPDATE - BETA 026

Header and footer in the editor will need to be turned back on for each editor split in all projects prior to 025 It might be worth re-creating the tutorial as it assumes you're in header view - obviously it was created ages ago, but on creating it with a fresh install*, the header bar was off maki...

Re: How do I set the Alternate/External Editor(s)?

The bug of it not working at all seems to have been fixed in the latest beta - I don't think you can set external editors though, it just uses the windows default.

Re: Alternate\External editor bug

I think alternate editor only works if you are using split editors. Alternate being the scrivener editor window not highlighted in blue. I've played about using split screens, extra Scrviner windows etc. I can't get it to do anything either with alternate or external editors - I don't think I'm doi...
