Re: Um, registered version ate my book??

To Scrivener: Which parts are true of what Fluff is saying? "if you think that is bad, just wait until Scrivener decides to substitute zeros (0) for (o): apostrophes (') for full stops/periods (.); £ for($); erase previous chapter, when ever you begin a new one. Renumbers pages using random num...

Re: Beta 2.2.0.5 Crashes Cannot import word docx

Hello Keith, I kind of gave up on importing docx on the beta. I just convert to rtf. RTF import is done in 2 seconds instead of docx freezing for 10 min. I will continue using beta. Could I get the full trial oeriod with the beta? Thanks George

Re: MovieMaker Magazine articles (written in Scrivener)

Hello Penny, Great design work and writing in your MM mag articles that you wrote in Scriv. May I ask for your workflow as to how you inserted those images into your article? I am total newbie to Scriv. Thanks George

Re: Scriv doesn't show images imported in RTF saved from Word

Amber, 1) Table of Contents - I don't understand the sequence to follow to do TOC. When do I run TOC? How do I do the TOC in Scrivener before compiling to word? 2) How do I get the beta to co-exist with regular Scriv? I thought I locked the beta to the dock yesterday. When I restarted Macbook Pro th...

Re: Help! How to write basic captions for tables and figures?

Keith, That is great news you will finish the tutorial. I admit to not really understanding the tags concept. I really need to learn tags so I can make my compiled file more flexible and updated. Thanks George

Re: Scriv doesn't show images imported in RTF saved from Word

Amber, Could you provide links on how to show Table of Contents in Mac Word 2011 file, import to Scriv, then compile from Scriv to Mac Word 2011? I read that questions marks will appear in place of page numbers which have to be corrected by running print in Word. Thanks George

Re: Scriv doesn't show images imported in RTF saved from Word

Amber, Thanks for your reply. My Mac Word 2011 file includes 4 jpeg images of spreadsheet tables which I then saved as RTF. Then imported RTF to Scriv. The 4 jpeg spreadsheet images now show in Scriv. To test if jpeg images would show, I compiled original to pdf. jpeg images show. How do I get the p...

Scriv doesn't show images imported in RTF saved from Word

My word file was saved as RTF with screenshot image inserted of a small spreadsheet. But when rtf file imported, Scrivener doesn't show the image. I had to insert the image directly to Scriv file. One of L&L videos says images in RTF are retained when imported to Scriv. Using Snow Leopard on Mac...
