Re: Scrivener AppImage

I'm not in a position to use this yet so I have no feedback.

Thank you for the heads-up that this possibility exists.

Re: Change formatting in Comment?

Try:
Select the insertion point, then, Edit menu > Paste and Match Style (you'll see the keyboard shortcut there, as well).

Paste and Match Style is also available in the right-click contextual menu.

Re: Keyboard Shortcut? Is there a way to add a date-stamp in the Binder Subjject/Title field.

This doesn't directly answer what you've asked (don't think that's currently a feature) but maybe you'll find it useful.

You could use a custom column in the outliner:

Re: sync,com?

To add to what the others have said and in regard to“suggestions or ideas”, when I use a cloud service for Scrivener projects, I use Sync.com. I don’t sync live projects, I use timestamped ZIP files to transfer from/to devices.

Re: "Add Files" button in Forums doesn't work on iOS!

I should’ve included that I had used Safari. I just tried with Brave browser; Add Files worked. As a troubleshooting step—to mark as done—you could try after clearing cache/website data if you’ve not yet. I had none to clear. I’m going to install 13 soonish....waiting for some bugs to be sorted. It’...

Re: Cut and Paste from browser to Scrivener in iPadOS

You’re welcome.

When using an external keyboard, there’s a Paste and Match Style* action using a keyboard shortcut. Press and hold the cmd key to show options:

Re: Cut and Paste from browser to Scrivener in iPadOS

Have you tried this—long-press at the insertion point till the inline menu appears, then tap Unstyled Paste.

Re: Session Word Count Anomaly

well YOU might be able to, but i can't. Mine doesn't reset. I need to have to option to reset it--if not after I've deleted text, then at least when I open Scrivener for my next session. My negative number just stays there. Any solutions to this? If you find yourself in a situation where you want t...

Re: sync with external folder option gets unchecked

Section 14.3 in the Manual (Scriv 3.1.5) is a good source for the Synchronized Folders feature. I haven't used the feature in quite some time so my knowledge-store about it is limited. I'm wondering if this Tip (in a yellow box) at the very end of 14.3.2 is a clue for you*: Using a sync folder with ...

Re: which would be best for Scrivener: a new mac or iPad?

Thank you everyone. As a matter of fact, I own an Air 11 and I love it. It's the max I use at the office, hooked to an external monitor, keyboard and... trackball - yes, I prefer it. Over the time, its shell got bent. It's like something exploded inside and it looks egg shaped now, you can't close ...

Re: Session Word Count Anomaly
