Re: Adaptation to small screen for compilation (beta 25)

I agree it's better for an application to be responsive to the screen size, but you can resize from the top, then drag the window up to reveal the bottom. My compile window appears to be capable of being shorter than yours--you're not having the issue where it can't be resized at all, are you?

Re: How to count the word count of specific documents?

I’m using Scrivener on Windows I have my status set to “Mac” because I primarily use an iPhone There is an option on your profile settings for "Win + iOS" which is far more accurate than "Mac", since it's different from both. The tick-mark you're looking for is in the inspector....

Re: Questions about sub-documents and folder text

One use-case for folders is a novel's chapter heading. By using a folder, you can distinguish between the beginning of a chapter and the beginning of a new scene within that chapter. During compile, the chapter folder would get an automatic "CHAPTER 10: [folder title]" and then formatting ...

Re: Scrivenings questions

I haven't explored this feature in the Windows beta, but can you use the "Full Screen" mode (not to be confused with the Composition mode) and have the Inspector slide into view when you move your mouse to the right edge of the screen? This opens up the inspector's usefulness on smaller sc...

Play/Pause media in copyholder

For the first time ever, I have a media file that I want to play and pause from within Scrivener, so I can take careful notes, but I've immediately bumped up against a few limitations that I didn't expect. Is it possible to put a media file in a copyholder and have it respond to the play/pause short...

Re: Regular Expression search/replace

Regular expressions are indeed a feature of version 3. All forms of search, from the Project Search feature to the Replacements panes, can make use of regex.

Re: Scrivenings questions

Okay, sorry. I assumed the copy/paste from Scrivener to Word was because you were avoiding the compile functionality of Scrivener, which can be quite flexible in what gets compiled. I want to change the font settings for Scrivenings, respectively Composition mode ONLY. If that isn't possible (and th...

Re: Scrivenings questions

For getting things into word, you should start learning how to compile your project into a single word document. The tutorial (under Help) is a project that walks you through Scrivener at your own pace, and will cover compile (including notes on the state of the compile features in the beta). The na...

Re: Possibly Lost Everything

From your original description, it sounds like you only grabbed the .scrivx files from within the .scriv project folders of your projects. The .scrivx file is like a library's card catalogue--it's just a listing of the books in the library, with a few facts about each book. If you want to move the l...

Re: Index cards?

Index card icons in the binder overlay either a page icon (or stack of pages icon), or a folder icon. This means that you have the synopsis field filled in, but not the actual document (the place where you write what will become part of your final work). If you're struggling with creating new docume...

Re: HELP!

Scrivener 2 is a 32-bit application. Catalina dropped support for 32-bit applications. The only way to keep using Scrivener 2 is to down-grade your Mac to the previous operating system.

Re: New Project Backed Up My Entire Desktop Instead of What it was Supposed To Do.

...and put the shortcut on my desktop... Are you positively absolutely 100% sure you put the *shortcut* on the desktop and not the actual *scrivx* file? Asking because, as rdale pointed out, what you've described is *exactly* what would happen if you moved a scrivx file to your desktop (or any othe...

Re: New Project Backed Up My Entire Desktop Instead of What it was Supposed To Do.

So you create a new project via the File->New Project or the templates window, or did you create it elsewhere and then copy the .scrivx from there to your Desktop? I ask because this looks suspiciously like when people just copy the file from Scrivener that keeps track of the rest of the project, an...

Re: Scrivener for macOS doesn't yet function with new macOS 10.15 beta (19A471t)

Have you made sure that your dropbox app is up to date? The older versions didn't do automatic updates, so you might be having trouble because you have to manually download the software from dropbox.com and install it again.

Reasons to delay upgrade to Catalina

In general, I advise most people to wait until a X.1 release of any OS upgrade before taking the plunge, but in the case of Catalina, I'm seeing lots of reasons to wait. Licensing code isn't quite ready for Catalina: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=58714 Kindle Gen i...
