Re: Spoiled by the Save?

My projects are huge but my separate documents are generally not.

That said, I grab stats pretty often and am amazed by how quickly it can give me a word count of a 200+K project!

Re: Binder images

It will surprise no one to know that as much as I've used Scrivener and loved Scrivener, I haven't begun to scratch the surface of its many little jewels. Thus, I've never used Edit Scrivenings. Again, I need to dive back into the videos. I have checked them out at various times but I tend to miss d...

Re: Binder images

Wow, I missed that totally.

I have no idea how I managed to get text into a folder w/o opening a document to type in. I've seen all the videos at one time or another, but clearly need a refresher course. Thank you!

Re: Spoiled by the Save?

Once again, Scrivener rocks. And it must be a very fast process, because the close seems automatic, not like it pauses.

And I can breathe easily. Thank you!

Re: Binder images

Aha. Okay, that took care of it. There were a couple of characters there when I clicked clipboard. I deleted them, mystery solved. Thank you, as always!

Spoiled by the Save?

One thing I've gotten very accustomed to is the fact that Scrivener saves automatically without my command-S, and never asks me if I want to save changes when I close a file. I just finished a 222,000 word manuscript in 60 chapters, and as I was doing a final polish, was going through looking for ce...

Re: Binder images

All my chapter folders have text in them in all my projects, and none of them have the little "page" visible on their icons. In the help topic on the binder, I also don't see that particular icon. As long as it's not telling me something that will change the nature of the folder in such a ...

Binder images

I've written over a half a million words in Scrivener and this morning in a new project I've found something I haven't seen before. http://planetpooks.files.wordpress.com/2010/07/scrivener-image.jpg My folders always look like the top one. Why does the bottom one have a page on it? Thanks!

More on auto-complete

A recent tip of the day: Tip of the Day: Hit cmd-. or opt-esc while typing to bring up the auto-complete list. Add auto-complete words to a Scrivener project via the Edit > Edit Auto-Complete List… menu item. I have not had the experience that Scrivener auto-completes words for me. I've seen it in o...

Re: Tip of the Day Tweets

Okay, that's what I thought, but it didn't work, which is why I started searching on the term. HOWEVER--I must have opened it, but not clicked in it. I would have sworn to you that I clicked in several files and never got the option for test stats--but this time when I did it, it worked. So clearly ...

Re: Tip of the Day Tweets

I'm not understanding what the text editor is, and when I went into help and searched on that term I found nothing.

When I have a document open and am in the document instead of the binder, Edit Scrivenings isn't available.

Re: Tip of the Day Tweets

Somehow I've never used Edit Scrivenings, and didn't quite understand how it worked. Okay, off to do it.

Thank you!

Okay, new prob. I went into Edit Scrivenings, chose View Statistics and Text Statistics is faded/not available.

The Tip: Tip of the Day: To check for overused words, select the documents you want to check, enter Edit Scrivenings mode, and go to View > Statistics > Text Statistics. Click on the disclosure triangle next to “Word Frequency” to reveal the word frequency. The Question: Can you do this for an entir...
