[Fixed] Export as Zip crashes Scrivener iOS

Hi, I was happy to find out in the Scrivener User Manual section 12.1.2 that I can use AirDrop to share Scrivener projects between macOS and iOS (I do not want to use Dropbox). Following the first 3 steps from the manual, Scrivener for iOS crashes for me every time while it prepares the Zip archive:...

Re: View > Inspect > Comments & Footnotes Keyboard Shortcut

Thanks for your help Ioa. I looked again and found the culprit: 1Password has set the default global shortcut for locking a vault to Ctrl+Opt+Cmd+L and it somehow slipped my mind in the first round.

Re: Obscured line in footnote

The truncated footnote in inspector problem also appears in the Scrivener Tutorial with default settings in Scrivener 2.7 on OS X 10.11.1. The font used there is Optima Regular 10.

Re: Small letters in German Edition

I would guess this is desired behaviour and Scrivener "normalises" all words to lower case before the word count. This way for example the German article "das" appears only once in the list, no matter whether it was written "Das" (at the beginning of a sentence), "...

View > Inspect > Comments & Footnotes Keyboard Shortcut

The menu shows the keyboard shortcut Control + Option + Command + L in View > Inspect > Comments and Footnotes to display the Comments & Footnotes section in the Inspector. This keyboard shortcut does not have any effect for me however, and the desired section is not selected (clicking the menu ...

Since Scrivener 2.3.1 requires Snow Leopard, maybe you could give Menlo a second chance as the default font?

Re: 2.0.5.5 - Post Bugs Here

Keith, you are my hero. Half of my rather lengthy support email is already obsolete now :D Let's hope this 2.3 release arrives very soon ;) EDIT: I can confirm that the problems are fixed in the final 2.3 release. Thanks again.

Re: Use Inspector References for Markdown Links

Thanks for your very detailed answer Ioa. I did not know that one can not search or export the Reference pane. You convinced me to use your more powerful alternatives instead. When I looked for information on the Reference pane in the manual and tutorial I realized that it is not discussed very prom...

Use Inspector References for Markdown Links

I am test driving the Scrivener 2.2.05 Beta with MMD3 support and try to figure out a usable workflow for referencing websites. I am a big fan of the (Multi)Markdown reference link style with the following syntax: This is a link to the [Scrivener forum][ScrivForum]. [ScrivForum]: http://www.literatu...

I just checked: Menlo was introduced in 10.6 (Snow Leopard). I see your point.

Re: Default Preferences to Emulate Plain-Text

Thanks Ioa. May I suggest to change the Mac font from Monaco to Menlo? The two are very similar and Menlo provides additional italic/bold/bold-italic typefaces, while Monaco only has the regular typeface. As a result, Monaco breaks Cmd-b and Cmd-i because the font doesn't provide the needed typefaces.

Re: Link vs. Copy Files to Binder Research Folder

Thanks for pointing me to the older thread--I did not find it in my search. To be honest, I am a little bit frustrated at the moment, that links in the research folder are not allowed *by design*. In my opinion there are many possibilities to make *linked* vs. *embedded* resources easily distinguish...

Re: Link vs. Copy Files to Binder Research Folder

@MimeticMouton Thanks for the tip--I will try that as a first workaround. I'd still like to get some feedback. Is it only me who misses the possibility to link files in the binders research folder, or is it worth writing a feature request to Keith?

Link vs. Copy Files to Binder Research Folder

Dear Scrivener community, I am using Scrivener for some time now for my (non-fictional) university writings. Lately I was using some larger files for „research“, like video files of up to 1 GB I wanted to transcribe. The research folder in the binder was the logical place for me to put those files t...
