Re: HELP! NaNo version lost 3k words!

Nuthin'. And I've done my share of hunting through event logs, I'm a developer.

Phooey.

Well, at least I got my words back, I'd have MISSED them!

Note to self, DAILY backups. Without fail. Not every three days, EVERY day.

Re: HELP! NaNo version lost 3k words!

OMG. I closed it, and opened again, and they reappeared.

Now, I need to go change my pants.

HELP! NaNo version lost 3k words!

After a reboot, I opened Scrivener, it gave a message about an .rtf file (too quick to record the text of the message), and my first text file is EMPTY!

Is there any way to recover?

I'm afraid to close and reopen the project, or do ANYTHING, at this point :(

Re: Dog & Television

I'm having that problem AND the opposite problem with "Show Spelling", it's also working like a cat at "give the cat a pill" time. When I'm in "write" mode, I don't want to stop to fix typos, I just want to write. I turn off "check spelling as you type", the r...

Re: Why is Scrivener so slow?

I'm definitely noticing that it's slower and using more resources than earlier releases were. I'm seeing the cpu occasionally pegged, and memory usage spiking up to 80% or so, with only Firefox and Scrivener running. Granted, this is only a little netbook and not a high-powered machine, but I was ge...

Re: distracting word-count status bar

Oh, LilianEve, you are a genius and a lifesaver! Thank you! I'm hoping that fix doesn't impact anything useful on my win7 machine, but it sure fixed that horribly irritating pulsing green bar. I'd changed my target to "some number less than my current word count" to avoid that distracting ...

Re: New? info on lag issue

I upgraded to the 1.3 beta, and I'm still getting the lag occasionally. My project is up to about 18k words, the file I'm in is less than 1k words, and it occasionally, for no apparent reason, just stops responding for a few seconds. And the title bar says it's "not responding". And then i...

Re: Word Count Off in Editor

I'm getting: Scrivener - 11,000 OpenOffice and MS Word (the compiled for rtf version) - 10,990 NaNo Validator (copied and pasted from OpenOffice) - 10,992 If I had to guess, I'd say the difference between Scrivener and OpenOffice is the ten occurrences of "***", which I'm using for transit...

Re: 2nd NOV - LEE'S DAILY UPDATE

Haha I rather spend my money supporting people like you and the entire Scrivener project than put them in the pockets of some massive corporation bent on world domination. Of course, assuming you people aren't aiming for world domination. If you are... sign me up? :P Seconding this! This is my sixt...

crash in fullscreen mode[NOTED]

My first actual crash! :D I had this year's NaNo open, with a few files in Research and some index cards, but no text in that one. I also had a project with a 50k-ish word manuscript, broken into 25 files, nothing else in the project, since it's an older work. I had the Draft selected, and then the ...

Re: [Bug-testing] Does doing this make your Scrivener lag?

On a more curious note, does anyone experience this slowdown in normal usage over a longer period of time, like making 10-20 document files over the course of an hour? If this causes lag, then there could be a more concerning problem, since so far, our tests have involved speed and stress and not e...

Re: Multiple Problems With Large Files [BUG LOGGED]

In case it helps... I pasted in a 50k-ish word manuscript to split it into sections for revising in December, and doing the splitting into separate text files was... slow, to be kind, for the first 20k words, but once I got the main text file down under 30,000 words, it went MUCH faster for me. Stil...

Re: New line in corkboard view

Weird, that doesn't work for me. The new lines are visible when I'm editing that card, but ONLY when I'm editing that card, not in the inspector, either. It's not a crisis, I put the stuff that I felt needed line breaks in the notes for that scene instead of on the card. And it's not until my ending...

Re: Lagging when I type? [BUG LOGGED]

My lagging problem has not been resolved by the updated scrivener.exe. I type close to 80 wpm (even on this tiny keyboard, LOL), and I do need it to keep up. At this point, I've saved the NaNoWriMo template to a new .scriv and have that open, and I'm just entering synopses into scenes, and it's free...

footnote doesn't print as footnote [BUG LOGGED]

This is with the compile for .pdf and .rtf options... When I select and format text as a footnote, and then change the compile option to include footnotes as footnotes, the text is included inline, and not as a footnote, in the compiled version. When the compile option is to include footnotes as end...
