Re: Kindle classifies a novel as a document rather than book

I'm pretty sure it's just that Amazon classifies books as 'ebooks bought from us'. Every ebook I have ever added to kindle on iOS manually shows up as a document rather than a book - that's just what I've noticed, so it may be wrong (in which case I'm sure someone will jump in to correct me), but it...

Re: Typing Woes

In the interests of ruling things out/narrowing down the issue, I don't think it's dictation/text expansion software, since I'm not running either (and the MBA was new out of the box two weeks ago, so I don't have any installed and forgotten about - unless they come pre-installed and automatically a...

Re: Problems importing .docx files

Really? I thought Scrivener's claim to fame was being an awesome piece of writing software that allowed for a very flexible writing environment encompassing a huge array of features. O:) Regardless, as it says on the website, you also need to install kindlegen (http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?...

Re: Typing Woes

I'm hardly a Mac expert, but I think it's a Mac issue rather than a Scriv one; certainly I've noticed this behaviour on my MBA - it's popped up in my chat client and various other places. It's irritating, but I usually find pausing typing for a moment and reclicking in the text box fixes the issue -...

Question re: image compression

Not a huge issue (or an issue at all really), just looking for a bit of clarification. So, in the Export Options of the preferences panel is the option "JPEG Images compression" which has a handy little slider bar next to it labelled "min" and "max". Just wondering if m...

Re: Scrivener Temporarily Withdrawn from Sale on the App Store

Just a quick note: the twice in the past I have requested a refund from Apple for apps (admittedly for iOS ones), they were provided when a reasonable explanation was offered. The one sticking point I found was that they refunded as credit to my Mac store account rather then money back onto the card...

Re: Visual Overview for Character / Theme / Subplot

Think that you were pretty clear first time round, temporalranger. Thank you :) I just clarified because ahab seemed to be reading the offhand brainstorming as the reasoning, so I thought maybe it was less clear than I thought... and now I'm going to bed, because it's after midnight and I have an 8...

Re: Visual Overview for Character / Theme / Subplot

Or you could just go to the inspector, and in the window just below the index card that says General you can change the name of the first item to POV and assign each POV a label color, then save Labels for slightly more exotic plot tracking. Label colors can be set to show on the index cards when t...

Re: Visual Overview for Character / Theme / Subplot

This isn't something I'm personally invested in or bothered with either way, but... it seems to me that what's being asked for could be included by a "Show Label Colour In > Scrivenings" option? perhaps as the paper background - not sure how it would work with custom backgrounds, perhaps e...

You... you mean there's not some overly complicated twelve-step program that takes half an hour to do it for me, while leaving behind a bunch of detritus and dead files I then need to clean up? DDDD:

Re: KISS: Keep It Simple, ______

I'll admit to having been rather stumped about what to do to install Scrivener on Mac last Thursday - because it was, of course, the first thing I dled and attempted to install on Mac and the whole "just drag it to your applications folder and it's done" thing is so counter to the whole Wi...

Re: I need drawings in my book :)

Sigh. The lack of sci-fi menus on my Mac Scriv (so far....? ;D) is still enough to make me pout every time I look at them. I mean. The little hieroglyphics that apparently indicate keyboard shortcuts yet have no correspondingly marked keys (apart from the little four corner celtic knotty thing) can ...

Re: Options: close button = minimize (Win)

I think you are rather over-stating the case here. While it is true that this behaviour exists in some Windows programs, it is definitely not the norm you are attempting to portray it as - and it is definitely not the norm for programs that deal with documents. I've only ever seen this behaviour for...

Re: Appstore vs Direct Purchase + Moving from WinScriv

Thanks for the help guys. :) I've decided for the moment to compile to .doc then transfer over to Word on my PC for final layout stuff, since I don't think I do it often enough for the computer change to become an issue. I'm keeping an eye on Nisus, but it's pretty pricey (not comparative to similar...
