Re: v1.9 issue - Editor Display location changes

Thanks for the replies. DavidR - Typewriter scrolling is off. Jennifer - I reverted to 1.8.9 and did some testing, and you are as usual correct. View/Hide of Binder/Inspector and copy/paste of text behave as oddly in the old version as in the new. Oddly in that most of the other Windows apps that I ...

Re: Writers forum?

I've been hanging out at Absolute Write for about a year now, and have learned quite a bit. Lots of forums for discussion on specific writing topics, as well as are forums for sharing your work for feedback, if you are so inclined.

v1.9 issue - Editor Display location changes

I believe these a...

Re: Any chance of supporting Jump Lists in the Windows version?

In Win7, I work on multiple Scrivener projects at the same time the old school way: I add a shortcut to the projectname.scrivx files to my Favorites folder. If your Favorites folder is already too cluttered for this, another option is to create a new toolbar folder that contains the project shortcut...

This morning I was using Full Screen + the Inspector, and thinking to myself how handy it would be if James' #1 request were implemented!

Re: Tracking questions & to do items (Simulating OneNote Tags)

No worries David. Robert, thank you for the detailed reply and for your suggestions. I've concluded that any approach that separates the notes/questions from the text they apply to adds too much overhead for what I am trying to do - too much interruption/distraction during the brainstorming process ...

Tracking questions & to do items (Simulating OneNote Tags)

I would like to track open questions and to do items for myself inline in the document text in Scrivener. In OneNote this is trivial: simply add a Tag to the text. Tags can be viewed across documents, so I don't have to keep a separate list of open questions and to do items. I am trying to simulate ...

Re: How do you edit a novel with Scrivener?

2) Make a copy of the entire file, preserving the draft but offering no easy way to compare the two. When I am done with my first draft, I will make a copy of the entire .Scriv folder and rename it to "Project FIRST DRAFT". I will then continue to make my second draft revisions in the ori...
