Re: Who should read what you are writing?

This is really good, Katherine. This is advice that comes from someone who's been on the journey. I feel that advice like this only makes sense to someone who has committed to the journey and has tried. Someone who has looked in the mirror. I love Stephen Koch's book in the same way. And Philip Pull...

Re: Auld Lang Syne (NiaD 2018)

Given that this story was set in Chicago, I thought the images of the frozen Lake Michigan in this tweet might be of interest:

It depends on which timeline you're on.

Just want to add my thanks to Rog for what is an amazing day. A unique day. There's nothing like it.

Re: Spellcheck oddity with the text: "straight and narrow"

I don't doubt it was done with good intentions but, of course, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. (L'enfer est plein de bonnes volontés ou désirs.) James Gleick and Philip Pullman recently bantered over the spelling vs. grammar distinction: https://twitter.com/PhilipPullman/status/10733...

Re: Scrivenings issue

Understood, but if you provide feedback in the future, you may wish to think about toning down your rhetoric. It is not beyond the realm of possibility that some of the strong feeling you are inferring from the responses here may be echoes of some of the strongly-worded statements you have made, th...

Re: Scrivenings issue

It's "shaken your confidence" in scrivenings? That seems very bizarre, given that it doesn't break scrivenings or make them unstable in any way. I'm just a user. I think I explained my issue fairly and accurately. I'm sorry it provoked such strong feelings. I'm very uncomfortable with the...

Re: Scrivenings issue

If it didn't work like this, there would never be *any* way of only viewing the text of the folders without their subdocuments. The way I do this is to select the folder in non-scrivening mode. You're missing the S in KB's statement: "... the text of the folder s ..." No, I really didn't.

Re: Scrivenings issue

Thanks, Katherine.

I'm not going to be persuaded, though. This is a design decision that I don't agree with. It's shaken my confidence in scrivenings, though, so I will stick to using it only in simple cases.

Re: Inconsistent Emdash?

I'm aware of three types of dashes, which, in increasing length order, are produced by: -; alt+-; and alt+shift+- Scrivener's substitutions – which I presume is an Apple thing – produces the last of those three in my projects. (I wish it didn't because I prefer en-dashes.) fwiw, I don't use the auto...

Re: Scrivenings issue

Thanks, Keith. In that case, I will change my behaviour. That is, put everything in folders, even single documents (at the appropriate level). Aside: Clearly, I find this odd behaviour. It surprised me, after all. What eludes me is the circumstance in which this behaviour would be useful. Perhaps so...

Re: Scrivenings issue

Like JoRo says, it’s logical. The folders are just text documents with another icon. They are not "folders" in the OS file system sense. They are just text files at different hierarchial level. Sure. I've been using Scrivener for quite a while. I know this. If you wanna keep an eye on wor...
