Re: Delete key in the editor

Update: Now the behavior has changed to the normal behavior. This is obviously a bug, so if a moderator would be so kind as to move this to the appropriate sub-forum that would be great. I have no idea what triggers the behavior nor what makes it go away. Update 2: I think I've isolated the behavio...

Re: Just Someone trying to get some writing done

"Seamless operation" is kind of a funny phrase, because it turns out that the real world is full of seams. You are happily working away in your favorite coffee shop, and the owner's kid trips over the cord for the WiFi router and yanks it out of the wall. You're jotting down a couple of q...

Re: Copying text from Browser

Perhaps I misunderstand your question, but using the normal iOS touch interface, I'm able to copy text from Safari and then paste directly into an iScriv document.
I'm not sure how much your device's clipboard can hold. If exceeding its limitation is the issue, try taking smaller bites.

Re: Best screen size?

Since you mention a full size 16GB iPad, I assume you mean a new iPad Air2. It'd be worthwhile to consider a refurbished Air2, if that's the case. Apple's refurbs come with the same warranty and you can add Apple Care, if desired. Apple listed price for an WIFI 16GB Air2 = US 399.00; a 64GB refurb =...

Re: Potential problems with Dropbox?

What will happen to our projects if Dropbox is not allowed to sync completely and then we go to our iOS version and perform a sync? There are numerous safety nets in place, but the simple fact of the matter is that if you take two different projects and smash them together and try to load the resul...

Re: Overwhelming praise

I haven't done much so far with iScrivener except toy with the tutorial and transfer some test files through iTunes. I'm blown away by your creation and you have my admiration. You persevered and overcame. Whether it's the mitigation of physical limitation that the usage of an iPad can bring , or an...

Re: Security and encryption

Direct Mac<->iPad transfer is supported now, via iTunes. Do you mean that I can save my work done on iPad directly in my MacBook, via itunes, without any Cloud transfert? Thas would be exactly what I needed, and safest! See sec. 12.1.2, pdf page 147 here : http://www.literatureandlatte.com/document...

Re: Scrivener for iOS - When?

am of the 20th here in Aus and my money is still burning a hole.... Have another look this afternoon. It's the first time I've seen all the listings for Scrivo. How many different versions can they stuff into the app store? Regardless of whether the apps are any good, I have to say it looks like a ...

Re: Scrivener 2.8 still using insecure Sparkle

Thanks for independently confirming that. And yes, I should have mentioned that since the fix is in 2.8, running the updator from 2.7 will still be insecure. Anyone concerned with using the downloader should download the DMG directly from the main product page and drag that into Applications (or wh...

Re: Scrivener 2.8 still using insecure Sparkle

@derick, Thanks for the heads-up on this. A way you can check if an App is calling for http or https for updates is by using the following code (by SpudMuppet) that's posted here : http://arstechnica.com/security/2016/02/huge-number-of-mac-apps-vulnerable-to-hijacking-and-a-fix-is-elusive/?comments=...

Re: Scrivener for iOS - When?

Hi, I have an ipad mini 3, Windows laptop (with Scrivener for Windows) and use dropbox often . I would love to have a Macbook but need to save $$ for that - soon I hope. Can the IOS version sync with Windows as it does with the Mac version? I searched for this but couldn't find anything referencing...

Re: I love Scrivener - but I'm too scared to use it

Having a sprawling complex story and reference materials all in one session is brilliant. Having random chapters vanish, in whole or part, is not. If I don't notice quickly enough, backup is no help (even putting aside the time and effort involved in opening multiple versions of a file and scanning...
