Re: Scrivener + MacBook Air = ♥

Before I got this 13" MBP that I have now (Early '11 with the Thunderbolt) I picked up the 11" Air. I used it for two days (not enough time to actually adjust, me thinks) and took it back. My neck was hurting, but now that I think about it, I hadn't been sleeping well either, and with me g...

Re: I'd like to suggest: More comprehensive progress tracking

That's an interesting idea that I thought about as well, and even came up with a solution that worked until I resized my Scrivener window: I made the inspector the same width as the targets window when I was running Scrivener as large as I could get it without going full screen and I just sat the ta...

Re: I'd like to suggest: More comprehensive progress tracking

I was thinking tonight after my session counter reset for the sixth day in a row (I have set a target for the word count and a deadline date.) I love the fact that it adjusts the session targets on it's own. One thing that i think may be useful (and it's been suggested in this thread, I think) is if...

Re: Screen Reader Support

Ok. I've got my wife running though the VoiceOver quick start on our Mac Mini, and as she was doing so, I was paying a little bit of attention to how to do things in VoiceOver. Since I had Scrivener in the foreground on my Mac, I enabled VoiceOver and navigated around a bit. Overall Scrivener seems ...

Binder in Full Screen mode?

Is there a way to access a different document using the binder without leaving full screen mode? For instance, If I need to know some obscure detail about a character that I've jotted down in a character sketch, I have to exit full screen mode to get to the character sketch, and then go back to writ...

Screen Reader Support

Does anyone know if VoiceOver (or JAWS or WindowEyes) works properly with Scrivener in either the Mac or Windows flavors? This is something that my wife and I have wondered for quite some time as I love the software and she hears me rave about it, but until recently, there wasn't a windows version. ...

Re: Working off of network drives (MobileMe, thumb drives...)

I have a similar workflow for working from my MacBook (My primary writing machine) and my Mac Mini. I actually do very little writing on the Mini, but the files sync both ways regardless. I use SugarSync rather than Dropbox. I have my writing folder set to sync on both computers, and as I write, I c...

Re: Working off of network drives (MobileMe; DropBox...)

Probably a fluke. Also I noticed that your second example was an older Scrivener project, so I don't know if there'd be any difference there--not in the process itself, since it's all still a bundle, but just as far as the binder files and so on, since they've changed for 2.0. I may test this out l...

Re: Working off of network drives (MobileMe; DropBox...)

(Sorry, edited the above because I submitted too soon.) Yeah, maybe it's worth checking the project file in Dropbox occasionally and seeing what it's doing. I don't know if that's something that would happen all the time or if it's only occurring when there's a glitch in the sync process. I'm leani...

Re: Working off of network drives (MobileMe; DropBox...)

Ok, That's what I did. My Mini was sitting idle at the time so it had to have been the forced shut down. The only thing I'm wondering about now is the (From $NAME) files. I'm going to have to do that manually in each project, methinks...

Re: Working off of network drives (MobileMe; DropBox...)

I got turned off of Dropbox after it completely destroyed a .scriv bundle. I started looking for a solution that would keep them intact... I found Sugarsync ( http://www.sugarsync.com ) that has been working for me for some time working with live files, but after reading this thread, I'm more than l...

Re: Using Scriv with Laptop + Macbook Air + Dropbox?

I used Dropbox until it completely destroyed a .scriv bundle. (This was back in the 1.x days...) Now I use Sugarsync and I have the local files on the laptop (Presently a 13" MacBook that is going to be turning into a MacBook Air some time in the near future) and the desktop (A Mac Mini). I've ...

Re: Linux user thread

If you have no intention to upgrade to 2.0, you'll want to treat the trial in the same way you would have you had no intention of using Scrivener. At the end of the trial, use Compile and File/Export/Files... to get everything out of the project(s). Then in your case, you'll want to just drag that ...

Re: Linux user thread

Is anyone else having issues moving between the different versions of Scrivener with projects? I can bring a file from MacScriv version 1.54 and 2.0 to LinScriv, but I can't go the other way. MacScriv 1.54 claims that "No valid Scrivener 1.x project could be found at the specified path". ...
