Re: Tab a whole selection or paragraph? It just deletes!

Just to verify we're discussing the same thing, is this the behavior: https://www.screencast.com/t/JgVBBald If so,then Word has always worked that way for me throughout its many versions. Select text and tab it over. The example in the screencast is from Word 2007, and my version of Word 2016 does t...

Re: Tag and group individual sentences or paragraphs

Hi amorgwrites, As you've discovered, Scrivener's current level of support for tagging is primarily at the document level. Text level tagging requires working around that design. You've already given inline Comments a try, but here's another way to do it that may (or not) be useful to you. Tag some ...

Re: Force Dropbox to sync itself?

In the Tutorial, duplicating projects from the Projects screen is discussed in the Working with Projects document. In the Syncing document below that, there are a couple of bullets that discuss the DropBox vs. Local (On My iPad) sections on your iDevice. As Lunk says, select Edit, then drag and drop...

Re: Split screen in IOS

Folks, Thanks for the follow-up info. I started to type up a bug report, but as I was looking at the screenshots I thought, nah, this is too trivial to bother Keith with. I'm just going to drop it. :D

Re: Force Dropbox to sync itself?

Scrivener on my iPad seems to have some confusion with Dropbox, and often, when I open my project, I’m told there is a syncing problem, and to check that Dropbox’s sync is up to date. I don’t know how to force Dropbox to sync. I keep my files in the suggested place: Dropbox/apps/Scrivener I eventua...

Re: How do I keep track of my chapters if I have to break them down in dozens of documents?

Well, I have a lot of material, and the thought of splitting it into dozens, if not hundreds of single documents into folders already bugs me out, such as if I have to rearrange them, and end up not being about to find where one is or get the full picture because its so unorganized and spend my tim...

Re: How do I keep track of my chapters if I have to break them down in dozens of documents?

Hi mjw, Sorry to say, I'm really not clear on what you're asking. I've organized my WIP novel by sections (folders), and then grouped scenes (documents) within the sections, if they feel like they belong there. What I'm calling sections may or may not turn out to be chapters, so I decided not to cal...

Re: Convert Scrivener Project 3 to Scrivener 1.9

Currently, no. You’ll need to do it by hand. You could open your current project in the beta, create a new project in Windows 1.9, and copy documents from the beta over to 1.9. My *assumption* is that the there will be an “Export to 2” feature in the final Windows v3, same as with Mac. But currently...

Re: Best Practices for Poetry

I created folders under the "Poetry Manuscript" main document for English Poems, Dutch Poems. Subdivided into 'General Poems' (all standard forms of poetry) and Haikus. So I have for example: English Poems > English Haikus > haiku-1, etc ... English Poems > Published Poems > Quintessentia...

Re: Update character sheets from template

Hi Johan, Welcome to the forums. :) No, as you suspected, the templates are just 'starter' documents. There is no way to make a change to the template doc and have it auto-magically propagate to its progeny. You'll have to do the additions by hand. Of course, if you keep your template documents up t...

Re: Split screen in IOS

This does appear to trigger a bug, though. If I select the LEFT document and hit the double arrows to maximise that pane, there is now no way back... until you hit one of the up/down arrows (top left), which magically makes the document title appear and back arrow. I am seeing what appears to be a ...
