Re: Can you export Scrivener Color Palette to new computer?

If you're speaking of color sets: macOS Tip If you wish to share your colour sets with other users, or transfer them to another computer, you will find a file in your user Library folder, under Colors, named Scrivener.clr. Place this file into the same folder on the second computer and it should bec...

Re: Can I just drag and drop chapters written in Pages into Scrivener?

@Casuarina,

Chris Rosser has written an Apple Pages tutorial (includes page numbering) here:

It will at the least give you a good grounding.

Re: Scrivener should become subscription

While of course there are still many kinds of users and a generalisation doesn't cover them all, it does seem to me that more and more users expect simplicity and fewer know their way around the computers they use every day - or at least have different expectations of them. (An ongoing issue for ou...

Re: Linux 1.9.01 Beta Released

Hi all, has anybody installed Scrivener on Ubuntu 20.4? I used the deb package and did both a manual install and through the software manager. Installation was a piece of cake, Scrivener shows up in the apps and everything. Only problem is that it does not run. Any idea? I have not but yesterday di...

Re: Scrivener should become subscription

Get a good night’s sleep, eat your veggies and stay clear of bus courses.

Carry on.

Also see the post immediately following the one I linked to. AmberV has added info about zoom's effect on the selection tool.

Re: Using the select tool

Another approach that may be workable is to use the fluid Zoom capability (pinch gesture) to alternate between large-scale and finessed selection movements. This is a technique I’ve long used on websites, rather than sitting there and waiting ten minutes for the selector to gradually auto-scroll to...

Re: Scrolling is simply out of control

See the following post link. Note the ETA material—before using the arrows the initial selection should be made with the selection tool in the extended keyboard row.

Re: Character count on iOS not working on an existing document

I’m not sure if I’m properly understanding what you’re trying to accomplish, and although it doesn’t speak to the goal feature you might find this helpful. In the included Tutorial > in the document titled The Editor there’s this: While you type, a live word count appears in the nav bar at the top o...

Re: Vic-K

Never talked substantively to Vic. I imagine he and I would disagree on a thing or three but I trust that it would be disagreement expressed rationally. In addition to the expert-at-banter that he was, I perceived a man of great depth; a human who chose to think and one who did so to the best of his...

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.
