Re: Moving from Beta to Official Release

From the beta: File > Options > Manage (lower left) > Save Options to File should save most of the beta settings to a file, which you can then load in the next release. As far as I can tell, you cannot save Toolbar settings. I take a screenshot of mine and rebuild them by hand. You can export custom...

Re: Help - my status colors have disappeared in my binder

Hi lgfrie,

You wrote Status color, but you I think you mean Label color.

You probably turned it off, see View > Use Label Color in, and select Binder.

Also, F5 toggles it, that's likely what you hit by accident.

Best,
Jim

Yes, I do this too. Certainly can't hurt!

Re: What is the best way to save and back up with Scrivener?

I have set backups on each system to not be zipped (to minimise risks of corruption.) Hi SirKnight, This is not a good idea. In fact, zipping the projects should *decrease* the risk of corruption, because then whatever syncing and backup services you use only have to deal with one zipped file, and ...

Yeah, it's not the easiest thing to find.

Click on the pull down by your user name, upper left

Select Settings

Select Manage Drafts

Select Load Draft for the one you want to modify.

Post away!!!

Re: Where am I saving?

Is there a way to find out where I initially told it to save documents I'm working on in the program? Like Tools->Options shows where the backups go, Is there a place that shows where the non-backup versions were told to be saved? Hi cjzurcher, Strictly speaking, no. But--if you have a project open...

Re: How do I use Scrivener 3 with two authors

We both have Scrivener 3 on Mac, how can I do what I need. Follow Lunk's instructions: If you have Dropbox and have your Scriv projects in a designated folder, put the mutual project in a subfolder and give your co-writer access to that. Then make sure you open the project, write, close it, and the...

Re: Scrivener Templates location

Chuck and Brookter, Now I recall the other thing that gets stored in that AppData folder: Custom compile settings. This discussion led me to this post, which discusses a possible solution to the symbolic linking Brookter tried on Windows: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3766...

Re: Scrivener Templates location

I located where Scrivener is saving (my) custom templates (C:\Users\CWBillow\AppData\Local\LiteratureAndLatte\Scrivener\ProjectTemplates\) , but it seems that all that is/are there are my custom templates. Hi Chuck, Yes, that matches where custom templates are stored on my PC. What folder(s) do I n...

Me too. That's why, in addition to the desktop version, I use iOS Scrivener.
