Re: Quick and dirty PDF annotation works on Mac, not iOS. Why?

Sorry to bump my own query. But, as it's soon been posted for a month, without any reaction, and the problem persists, I'm curious as to what causes it. As I said: Definitely not a deal-breaker, but somewhat of an annoyance. And Weird ... Especially the fact that the same PDF, once in Scrivener and ...

I share everyone's hopes for a Scapple on iOS app. But, as for reading Scapple files on my iPad, i go the PDF route – Export to PDF (Shift-Cmd-E).

Re: Desperately Disappointed Mac User

As a daily user of Scrivener on a nine years old MacBook I can guarantee you that you won't have any problem using Scrivener on a five year old one. Updates to the last available operating system are for free.

Re: Adding TinderBox for Keeping Track of Things? Not really! Something else?

An additional comment. Dragging a mail into the editor is useful if you want it as a reference. If you first save it and then drag it into the research file, you'll have the full text of the mail available in Scrivener and you can open it in a split screen or, as a bookmark, in the Inspector. And, u...

Re: Adding TinderBox for Keeping Track of Things? Not really! Something else?

You should be able to drag the email into Scrivener (in the editor), and a link should be automagically formed. Yes and no. Marcoiac, you are right. If I drag the mail into the editor , I get a link. I've been trying to drag the mail into the binder. That doesn't work. I only get the enclosed error...

Re: First Manuscript (105k) COMPLETE!

Congrats! Agree with everything you write about Scrivener as a toolbox for writers. But it was YOU who used the tools and YOU that finished that draft. Kudos!

Re: Adding TinderBox for Keeping Track of Things? Not really! Something else?

Yes, I meant along the lines of the latter: to be able to be link to emails that open in the mail program when you click on them. You can drag the email from Mail app into a Scrivener document and you have a link that, when clicked, will open up that email. Am I missing something here? Sounds good,...

Re: Adding TinderBox for Keeping Track of Things? Not really! Something else?

The problem is thatScrivener cannot import emails directly. Depends on what you mean by directly. I export the mails as PDF:s and import them in Scrivener. That is useful if you need just the information in the mail, less useful if you want to be hooked up to your mail app, and answer/forward the m...

Re: Additional feature for Linguistic Focus

This is because Linguistic Focus is actually a rather simple tool that just calls on some nice new APIs that Apple introduced into macOS a couple of years ago. These APIs allow me to ask Apple's frameworks to search for all nouns, pronouns, synonyms and so on in a piece of text. The actual searchin...

Quick and dirty PDF annotation works on Mac, not iOS. Why?

More thorough annotation of PDF:s I make with PDF Expert on my iPad Pro. If I send a (flattened) copy from PDF Expert to Scrivener, I can read any notes I've made with Apple Pencil in Scrivener iOS and (after syncing) also on my Mac. If I open a PDF in the Files App and make some notes on it with th...

Re: Dropbox sync error: ”The file xxx doesn't exist ...”

Now the problem reoccured. I suppose I can solve it by once more following Devin's good advice, but thought that it would be interesting to hear if someone has any inkling as to what might be the root cause of the problem. To widen the circle of potential posters, I changed the language som that the...

Re: preview text file from outliner?

Thank you, Helen, for inspiring me to explore this. I wrote: To close it, press Cmd-W. Very similar to how Quick Look works. Now I realise that also Esc closes the window. Very Quick Look-like, indeed. If I could also find a key combination that exposes the Synopsis without using the trackpad I'd be...
