Re: Scrivener should become subscription

Please do not do so. I also have a Ulysses subscription. During the year, I got a new credit card. Late on a Sunday night, with no warning, Ulysses sent a renewal through, Since the credit card number was no longer valid, the renewal was declined. So they tried again. And again. And again. Until the...

How To Strike-Through Text

I see a reference on removing strike-through text in Scrivener, but how do you strike through text in the Editor in the first place? A google search is unhelpful (Shift+Command+X doesn't work, nor does Shift+Command+T); posts to the forum discuss removing such text but I haven't found a way to strik...

Re: Importing from InDesign into Scrivener--or would importing from the EPUB be better?

An ePub is basically html, which is easily converted into Markdown (use Pandoc).
So you could go, ePub=>Markdown and import that into Scrivener.
Why not try different options and see which one works the best?

Re: Pre-Compile: Assign Section Formatting

Indeed, LaTeX is a plain text format, so to express italics you have \textit{this is italic text} My question is, how do I write this in the Scrivener flavor of Markdown? --does Scrivener change this is italic text to *this is italic text* while compiling to Markdown? Or, can I just write *this is i...

Pre-Compile: Assign Section Formatting

1. Is there a way to assign formatting to text before compiling that is NOT the formatting seen in the editor? The problem is that editor formatting is inappropriate for different export formats. Screen Shot 2020-07-16 at 11.38.44 AM.png 2. What is the secret to using Markdown with compile? That is,...

Re: ARM

Apparently re-compiling may not even be necessary:

ARM will be Easy

Just saw this.
Maybe there will be no need to worry about recompiling.

Re: apply default format to entire project

Sorry, I’m not really sure if we are on the same topic at this point, and I’m having a hard time understanding the context of your question in the framework of converting default formatting in text files. None of the outliner or outlining commands would be relevant to changing the font and such. Th...

Re: apply default format to entire project

I'd love to be able to do this: What is (the) Outliner View? View>Outliner Options=everything is greyed out except "Use Fixed Row Height" View>Outline>=everything is greyed out except "Show Subdocument Counts in Binder" I vaguely remember using Scrivenings in v.2.0 but I don't se...

Compile Help

1. I can't figure out how to change the section fonts in Compile. After choosing a new font, clicking "Save" does nothing; the new font is not selected. https://ibb.co/vwjcVqm https://ibb.co/vwjcVqm Format>Draft>PDF does not override the project font settings either. https://ibb.co/wrdhQfj...

Re: Virus Attack! or, Backing Up to the Cloud, Google Version

Google treats the *.wp file as a Wordperfect file and so you bypass the virus filters. And here I thought Google hired the finest. So I guess according to them, if I take a plain text file with “HA HA” typed into it, and .zip it, now becomes a potential virus. That indeed appears to be the case.

Re: Virus Attack! or, Backing Up to the Cloud, Google Version

I agree, I don't really understand the need for emailing the project. I would just zip it and save it in the cloud somewhere. You could even set up a free account somewhere just for the purpose of holding that zipped project. Mega, Box, Sync, and many others have free space available in the cloud. ...

Re: Virus Attack! or, Backing Up to the Cloud, Google Version

Maybe Google Mail (you are referring to Google Mail , aren't you?) has a problem with the .scriv package format. Why don't you mail an actual .zip file of your project to yourself? You haven't turned off automatic backup of your projects, have you? By default Scrivener backs up zipped projects to a...

Re: Virus Attack! or, Backing Up to the Cloud, Google Version

The project xxx.scriv is a folder, not a file. It just looks like a file in Finder, i.e it is a package, a folder looking like a file. So do what Suavito suggests - mail a zipped backup. This does not work. You can't send a *.zip file; it is caught by Google's anti-virus filters. I tried, As it tur...
