Re: Major Problem: Copying Text From Word With Changes Implemented

I'd really like a response on this one. Perhaps I'll create a YouTube video to show you exactly what happens.

Thanks.

Re: lock binder order to prevent accidental reordering

That would usually have been discovered when you and your proof reader read the final version, looking for typos, don’t you think? Probably, and I admit I'm being overly dramatic, but let's say it happens after that final version was created. You find a typo, and when you correct it you perform an ...

A Way to Add Book Metadata to the ePub?

Below is a note that I got from an ARC reader. Does Scrivener have any way to handle this, or do I need to edit the ePub directly? Thanks.

Re: lock binder order to prevent accidental reordering

To illustrate a cost/benefit analysis of this problem, imaging a first Amazon review like this: ★ One Star! Unreadable. This book started off fine, but all of a sudden, there was a scene that made no sense. It had many new characters, almost as if it was a totally different book. Maybe the author ha...

Re: Major Problem: Copying Text From Word With Changes Implemented

It does seem to be an issue only when italics were removed as part of the editing operations.

I have about fifteen errors in the published book as a result of this. Tomorrow I'll upload corrected versions.

PS. I hope this is only related to italics.

Major Problem: Copying Text From Word With Changes Implemented

Here is a problem that may have resulted in errors in a book that I just published. Here's what happens: 1. Compile to DOCX 2. Editor makes a change to the DOCX, removing italics from a word (e.g. voir dire to voir dire). 3. I accept the change 4. I copy the text from the DOCX to Scrivener 5. The it...

Re: Scapple lost its Quickview capacity?

Here are some images to emphasize how important this fix is. Scapple's integration with Scrivener is a great feature, and this bug is the difference between this:

Re: photo ebook

You may need to use Sigil to edit the compiled files. My free nonfiction book Drive, Ride, Repeat has a lot of images. I created the ePub with Scrivener and then edited it with Sigil. I was able to dig up my notes on how to handle the images, and here they are: PROBLEM: Fix photos in Sigil SOLUTION:...

Re: Scrivener Read-Only Mode

Here's a workaround that I use. I make a copy of the project, then give it a distinctive title, and change the colors of the status labels. Because it's a copy, I won't change the original and because of the distinctive colors and title, I'm less likely to make changes to the copy when I mean to mak...

Re: Edit note text without auto-resizing the note?

I'm guessing the answer is no.

Two workarounds:

1. Just resize the note after editing the text

2. Add spaces after the text

Thanks for the support.

Yeah, it's just fun to use. Here's a new way I'm using it, mapping out the relationships between the different characters:

Re: Does this timeline view exist?

If you're looking for a true timeline that syncs with Scrivener, Aeon Timeline is fantastic.

Re: Getting images into Scapple

It would help to know a little more about what you’re trying, and what result you get. The type of image you are loading in Preview may make a difference (use ⌘I in Preview and examine the first tab, if you’re unsure), and what sort of result you see in Scapple. Is the Edit ▸ Paste menu command ava...

Re: All Book Images Gone--Dropbox Symlink Problem?

I didn't mean to imply that Scrivener was at fault. I never thought that. I don't know why it found some of the images but not others (first screenshot), but that no longer matters (since things are working). >... unless there’s a really good reason to keep the files external rather than just keepin...
