Re: move doc to different project?

Today I decided to combine two fairly long projects (10-ish documents each) into one, to make a sort of book thing. Here's what I did: First, duplicate the first project, edit the copy, move all its documents down into a new folder for part 1 or whatever it is. Then, in the second project, compile t...

Learn from iOS ...

I use the iOS version more than the Mac version, because I lug my iPad around and not my laptop or iMac. Scrivener iOS is a very nice writing environment. A thing I really like about it is that when it opens, it shows me two key views of all my work: the projects in alphabetical order, and the proje...

Re: Outliner/Synopsis in Binder?

I had this issue again today, composing on the iPad. I have these nice little synopses in my index cards, reminding me what to write about. I wanted to see all my cards (which are all at top level below the Draft folder), with synopses. As far as I can find, if you have a draft folder with only docu...

Scrivener iOS hangs "finishing up" Dropbox.

Duplicated my starting project. Scrivener asks to update Dropbox. I'll allow it. Does 19 files or some such. Hangs saying "finishing up". Does not respond to cancel button. Killed Scrivener. Restarted. It wants to sync, as it should. Allow it. Hangs again. Finally an error message: Could n...

Change iOS file suffix?

I compile my web articles as plain text, because if I turn on the Markdown toggles, Scrivener/iOS comments out all my YAML headers. That's not as helpful as it might be, but life is tough. I renamed the top folder to index, so that the output saved file after compile will be named index ... but I ne...

need tip for marking published projects please

i have various projects in Scrivener/ Dropbox. articles in progress, books in process or waiting, published articles, and so on.

They all just show up in Scrivener's list. Looking for ideas for something like labeling that shows up at the project list level.

Thanks!

Re: ios auto quit

i guess you folks must not use the auto quit. its point is that when you walk away from one machine, like to head out in the AM, when you open Scrivener on your laptop [or ipad], the one left behind has saved and exited, so you don't have any conflicts. it's a lifesaver for those of use who use mult...

Re: ios auto quit

same as in Scrivener 3, after a user-settable delay, save, update dropbox, exit.
just now, i imagine there's an issue if it isn't foreground, but perhaps even now it's possible.
anyway i want it :)
thanks,

Re: Is there a way to copy the content of the synopsis and the document notes into their document

As a computer scientist (no, really, I am :D ) I would argue that nothing + something = something, something + nothing = something, and nothing + nothing = nothing. And, of course, something + something else =, well, something + something else. So Scrivener is a bit too up tight about all this. And ...

Re: Is there a way to copy the content of the synopsis and the document notes into their document

Whenever I have a few documents selected, the feature, now called Documents > Autofill > Append Synopses to Main Text, appears to be greyed out. Please advise how one can use this feature. Thanks! Update: It seems to work, sometimes. Sometimes says Append, sometimes says Send, sometimes is greyed ou...

Re: Scrivener to Leanpub: the search for guidance.

FYI: Deep in the Leanpub help, I found this article: http://natedickson.com/2018/08/automation-for-authors/ which uses Scrivener Export and a Python script to make the book.txt file.

Still interested in ideas, thanks!

Re: Scrivener to Leanpub: the search for guidance.

OK, I'm slow. There's probably no real problem just compiling the whole draft to a single file, is there? Do all the organization in Scrivener, don't break it out into files, just put in the headers and let 'er rip.
