Re: Different Greens

I find it particularly entertaining that this poster's perceived disappointment in a product is caused by a color choice. Oh well. *shrug* I trust by now he has chosen a product that says "green is green", and "not green" but "something else entirely green", or somethin...

Re: Scrivener 3 Beta expiration -- Will I still be able to use beta if already downloaded?

Strange. When the Betas I use expire, I get a notice of a new Beta. I click on a button, a download happens, and I hit install or update or whatever it says. Wham, bam thank you, ma'm and Bob's yer unkle I have a new Beta. Can't beat that.

Re: Proper naming

I'm certain there will be others more experienced who have comments, but here's what I have done in similar circumstances: If Autumn is working the bar, or working anything else, or any time she's "Autumn", I would use her name-Autumn-as such. It's Sam's alternate, for whatever reason, and...

Re: Needing Advice

Not trying to convince you to install and work your present product into the Beta from 1.9x, but... You could install the Beta version into a NEW directory, e.g. Scrivener3. If you do that, be sure to keep it updated in F12 / General / Startup / Automatically check for updates. Drag a couple of Fold...

Re: Why the Android Version of Scrivener is Arguably the Most Important Version (and Why it's Number 1 on My Wish List)

sad emails from readers wishing I would start writing I wish you would start writing again, too. That wish is number one on my list as well. Unfortunately, with no Android version of Scrivener for you to use, I am forced to wait for your potboiler to appear. Oh well. * shrug * I guess I'll go buy a...

Re: Chapters and scenes numbering

It's a matter of changing a mere number(s) and re-positioning the Folder. No biggie.

Re: Copied book to another USB and text won't show anymore.

I've dragged and dropped many hundreds, possibly thousands, of ProjectName.scriv folders (both 1.9x versions and Beta versions) to USB devices. In fact, that's the method I use to do my backups. The only times I had drag and drop failures was when I didn't eject the USB device properly, and the file...

Re: Chapters and scenes numbering

Okay, well, imagine 45 or 50 or 60 Folders. Each Folder is a chapter in a novel. The chapters may be written in order. They may not. I may write the midpoint first, and I might write the ending after, so I have a hint where I'm going. Several very long chapter Folders could be split into one or two ...

Re: Chapters and scenes numbering

what purpose does the number serve? Well, I had a response, but my dog ate my login and I lost it before I could submit it. The Binder Folders are my chapter numbers, as explained. I don't use chapter descriptions in my output table of contents. It's numbers only. But I'm not asking about that. Sup...

Re: Chapters and scenes numbering

I'm wondering about "something like this" as well, not so much for scenes, but for chapter Folders in the Binder. Currently I write by chapter numbers displayed by a manual text entry in the Binder for each chapter Folder, e.g. 1. He lives 2. He dies 3. He arises as a zombie overlord, 34. ...
