Re: project size limit?

Amber had some great suggestions. I had to modify my backup procedure a bit. I only backup when I start and close a project. I used to have it back up with each manual save, but that was very slow for a file that is almost 600 megabytes. I also only keep the last 10 copies.

Re: Using Scrivener with iCloud

You really do have to be careful with sync technology. I've never had a problem, but I've heard of some issues with multi-file systems like Scrivener and Sente. Sente won't even let you save into DropBox (they do offer their own free sync though, it's pretty neat). The key is to not have your file o...

Table and HTML colors

Am I doing something wrong? I created a table. I go into Fomat>Table>Table I select Border or Cell Background. I select the color I want to change. A color option window appears. I click on the last icon on the top that looks like a spider's web. I enter my HTML color and hit enter. The color change...

Re: Copying and pasting images

That was the problem, many thanks. I have no idea how that happened. I have also removed my complaint from the post above, it's not warranted. Thanks again!

Re: Copying and pasting images

Ok, I see the ODD Scrivener behavior now. If the area I have copied has a graphic, I must go manually into the Menu and select Paste.

Copying and pasting images

I've created a page with text and added images. I added the images by dragging the PNG file into Scrivener into the area I want it to appear. I select all of the text and image, go to a new page, and paste. The text will paste but there is no image. What am I doing wrong? thanks in advance!

Is there a tutorial on how to do what you suggested Amber? I looked under help but got confused. Thanks.

Re: Add word document but retain functions

Thanks Amber. And the object on the form is just a simple check box, nothing fancy, but it removes it once imported. I need to retain the document as is since it's an official form.

Add word document but retain functions

Hi, I love Scrivener and have been using it for about a year to organize my dissertation. I occasionally add a Word document which is a form that needs to be filled out, but when I drag it into a Scrivener folder, Scrivener does some converting and I lose the functionality of the form. Is there a be...

Drag object out of binder to Desktop

Not sure if this is already possible. I add many different types of docs into my binder, PDF, GIF, PNG, etc. Sometimes, I need to get a file out, but I can't seem to just drag it back out to the desktop. I see an option to export and to open in external viewer, but a quick drag and drop to desktop o...

Add documents to Customize Toolbar area

Is there anyway to add some specific documents to the Toolbar area? I'm cleaning up a huge mess between three unique projects and need to go back and forth between documents (projects). I'd like to just click the icon in the menu and have it open up. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Re: Automate Scrivener

I don't mind if it has to be opened. If there was a way I could right click a file and have it go to an open Scrivener file would be fine. Almost like a script or workflow.

Automate Scrivener

Are there any third party tools that work with Scrivener to automate some tasks? For example, I'd like to quickly add a PDF document into a Scivener project with ease, and not opening and dragging the file around. Would love to hear what others are doing. Thanks.
