Re: Are Snapshot Timestamps Gone in 3??

Perhaps I don't understand your question, then please bear with me, but when I make a Snapshot it is identified by both date and time, and title (if I've given it such).

Re: External backup for Scrivener iOS files?

I have an app called “FileApp” ... I can stash zipped copies of the project there. But I believe you might also be able to use Apple’s new Files app for that as well ... I believe the fundamental downside to this is that all of these methods are one-way backups. For keeping zipped copies of the pro...

Depends on the keyboard. On a Swedish keyboard you can type "<" without holding down Shift. Hitting the same key while holding down Shift renders ">".

Re: Are offsite backup services safe?

Does the discrepancy between the two exist because of the possibility of eternal hard drives crashing, and/or becoming damaged? Suppose so. And the fact that external hard drives, at least during backup, must exist in a certain proximity to the computer. If you don't have a habit of lugging your co...

Re: Where do I start?

Any suggestions on learning how to write a book. I bought Scrivener but I just don't have the knowledge of how to start writing. I tried the tutorial but I'm still baffled. One way to answer your question is: Start by writing "It was a dark and stormy night", try to imagine who is out in ...

Re: DropBox no longer works

Reflecting on your post, I realise that your problem with upgrading perhaps has less to do with the physical age of your computer, and more to do with the fact that an upgrade might force you to upgrade Adobe and Word, and ensnare you in their blood-sucking subscription programs (Perish the thought!...

Re: Are offsite backup services safe?

Slightly OT. I know that many are using Dropbox both for syncing AND for backup. I'd never do that. The live copy of the project works as a sort of backup, if something happens to my computer. Additional, historical backup I'd rather have saved somewhere else, in my case on iCloud. I know that the s...

Re: DropBox no longer works

I haven't tried it, but I know that it is possible to use iTunes for syncing. I suppose that will be more hands on and less automatic. There has been many discussions on why iCloud and many other cloud services (including Google Drive) doesn't work for syncing Scrivener projects. Has apparently to d...

Makes sense. And, as I said, if you want the text to remain, a quick Cmd-Z after dragging fixes it.

Swedish trash bug

In an update the Trash icon in the Binder had its contextual menu changed to include Empty Trash. This works fine as long as my UI language is English. If I change it to Swedish (my system default language), there is no contextual menu at all connected to the Trash icon. High Sierra 10.13.3 Scrivene...

Re: How to MOVE text to the Binder?

I am having the opposite problem in S3.0.1 whereby dragging text to the binder cuts the text from the original document, even if I hold the option key as I drag (and have 'Option-dragging creates duplicates' in preferences). Is there a way to force a copy when dragging and dropping text from a docu...

Re: Thinking outside the box...Is anyone using Scrivener as a Project Management Database?

I haven’t used Curio, but from what I’ve read about it, it looks as Scrivener can be used in a similar way. Just remember that all those other snippets of information, if they end up in the Research part of the Binder they can’t be included in compile. That’s definitely a limitation, but isn’t that ...

Re: Line numbers are actually paragraph numbers

That Line Numbers are actually Paragraph Numbers is quite obvious and make sense of all the reasons listed here. Perhaps the easiest way to avoid confusion would be to re-name the feature accordingly.

Re: OPML or Scapple and Scrivener 3

In Scapple, the situation is a little better, but when I drag and drop it puts the content in both places: document and synopsis. I'm trying to use MindNode or Scapple as an outlining tool not a writing tool, so my import needs to be treated as such, but instead it treats it as a rough draft. Neat ...
