Re: sync with external folder option gets unchecked

If you want to get rid of the limitations of "sync with external folder", replace your Android device with an iPad or iPhone and buy iOS Scrivener. That would solve your problem. ;) Yeah, I had the same thought. @tsolignani: Basically, you've reached the limit of what Scriv is currently a...

Re: Sending a draft to readers...

Admittedly vast' is an understatement - a 900+ page manual is crazy. I use other mucho complex 'design/3d graphic' programs that don't have mega manuals like Scrivener. Not to be too much of a pedantic dweeb about it, but the Compile portion of the manual is a mere 150ish pages. :mrgreen: While Scr...

Re: Scrivinier Lost All Binder Structure ( In bacckup to)

Hi cless75, Since you didn't mention it, I'm assuming you are on Windows Scrivener 1.9.16. These symptoms (corrupted Binder) are usually due to an incomplete sync of your .scriv project file, although it's possible it was something else. You can probably recover your words. Use Windows Explorer to n...

Re: font type changed from "normal" to nothing.

I cannot find where to show the formatting marks tp see where a formatting byte may have inserted. See if Format> Options>Show Invisibles helps you find the problem. I would think you can select all the text in the document, and then reset the formatting as you like via the selectors on the Format ...

Re: [RC3] Composition mode performance issue

Yeah, composition mode runs fine on my touch-enabled Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga gen3, for any of the RC versions. My system specs are identical to Jestar's, except I'm running Win10 Pro. Documents with lots of comments take longer to load into the editor, but also run fine in composition mode. Best, Jim

Re: Music for writing

But is it just me that also likes to write to youtube coffee shop background noise? Believe it or not, some of my most productive 'in the zone' moments happened while writing in a crowded McDonalds. Somehow, within that smorgasbord of human white noise, it becomes easier for me to find focus. Best,...

Re: Features on Scrivener iOS: Equal to Mac?

I would rate iOS Scriv compile functionality to be at 10-15% of Desktop Scriv compile. It's really, really basic. If all you want is a vanilla printout of your writing with zero tweaking, then you might be okay. But if any kind of flexibility at compile time is important to you, than you won't be ha...

Re: How do you lock one window and view another chapter in other window?

Hi lmariam, What I've been doing lately is to use the Binder Selection Affects setting almost exclusively for this sort of thing. In your case, set it to Right Editor. (Navigate > Binder Selection Affects > Right Editor) Now the Binder will exclusively control the Right Editor. Then, to set your Lef...

Re: Am I using this wrong?

Hi Scrivictim, So... on the bright side, I haven't had the need to re-enter registration in about six months. On the dark side, I never got an answer about that issue particularly, or about my questions above. On the bright side, Scrivener seems powerful, and they do fix bugs that should have never ...

Re: Export corkboard as Mindmap, or format it as index cards in a PDF?

As you've posted in the Windows Beta forum, my assumption is that you're on the beta. :) I haven't done any of this myself, but hopefully can point you in the right direction. Is there a way to export one's corkboard "index cards" as a Mindmap (for use in Freemind etc)? File > Export > OPM...

I'll pass. Plus it's an online service. Where would my work go if they suddenly close shop? No, tnx. Looks like Dabble has a desktop version, as well as the online one. https://www.dabblewriter.com/downloads Not quite as good as Scrivener, but not bloody far off! I don't agree with that assessment....
