Re: help with tutorial

That would be the "Binder". You probably clicked on the left-most icon in the toolbar (looks like a print-shop bound document) or possibly triggered the keyboard short-cut to the menu item equivalent View->Layout->Binder. Try clicking on the icon, or visiting that menu item.

Re: Windows Update

If they were equating version numbers with feature parity, Literature and Latte could have incremented to 2.0 for Windows a long time ago. The current Mac version gained a lot of features after the 2.0 release, so the Windows team would still be catching up in that regard. Essentially, you have 2.0 ...

Re: help with transferring to Windows

When you use the "Compile" feature, it creates a copy, assembling all the parts of your Scrivener "project" into a document of a certain type. If you choose a Word compatible output type, then that copy will be readable by Word. It will have absolutely no effect upon your origina...

Re: Binder tied to split screen

But I think what rdale is suggesting is that the Documents/Hoist Binder command would not be global, but instead be specific to a split. Yeah, Ioa's picking up what I'm dropping. I’m not sure how well that would work since hoisting doesn’t work backward from the editor content. You hoist from the B...

Re: Is there a way to save the entire project using a new name?

I'd suggest File->Back Up->Back Up To... It will prompt you with the default name of the backup (usually includes the original name plus the date, I think), but you can name it whatever you like. You can open that project backup and the original project at the same time to compare various aspects. Y...

Re: Add Parts to a Novel

The reason you want the chapter numbering reset in the Part prefix is because it only happens once for the set of chapters contained in that part. Putting the chapter numbering reset into the chapter prefix means every chapter will be "Chapter 1".

Re: Binder tied to split screen

I don't know if this is a genius idea, an implementation nightmare, or a wacky one-off use-case that would make support curse my name, but why should that stop me? What if you could hoist the binder to different folders for each editor? Say I select the Research folder while the left editor has focu...

Re: Muting Snapshot noise

Why do you have a new profile now? (Clearly not a secret as you mention it in your sig line.) Your avatar shows you've had a major makeover. :P What type of dog is it? The family's pet?

Re: Muting Snapshot noise

Isn't it an airedale terrier? The clue is in the name I think. Sherlock Reepicheep I hadn't thought of that. Looked up Airedale Terrier and saw some pics online. Snap: you appear to be right. The breed comes from Yorkshire, which is well known for its Dales . And the post was written by rdale. The ...

Re: Muting Snapshot noise

Now that notifications are a thing in Mac OS X, maybe that should be the way Scrivener communicates that a snapshot has been taken... although if you have Do Not Disturb on, you might not see or hear anything if you selected a bunch of files that already had snapshots and took another.

Re: Scrivener for Mac & iPad?

"Soon" is probably optimistic at this point, but there are 3rd-party ipad apps that can make use of Scrivener's "External Folder Sync" feature while we wait, such as "Index Card". As for licenses, there won't even be a way for the folks at Literature and Latte to give a...

Re: Promote / Decrease Indents

There's actually a Mac app called "Cheatsheet", which will display all keyboard shortcuts for the application you are using at the moment. By default, it pops up when you hold down the CMD key for a couple of seconds.

You can do these things fairly easily in Scrivener already... If you right-click on one of the selected documents, there are contextual menu items for changing Label and Status, among other things. "Include in Compile" is a selectable column in outliner mode--if you select multiple documen...

Re: Sharing maps with non-scapple users

Would a JPEG or other image file work better in Scrivener, what with the ability to zoom, and not being constrained to a page's aspect ratio the way PDFs are?
