Re: Unknown Error Messages Re Scrivener & Dropbox

Thanks for your reply. I'm not sure what you're saying applies. My automatic backups are set to zip files. I recently changed from saving 25 backups to 10 because I didn't think I needed the higher number. Whether that has anything to do with the error messages I don't know. But hopefully, it won't ...

Re: Unknown Error Messages Re Scrivener & Dropbox

Thanks for your reply. I decided to go ahead and allow it. That seemed to be the only way to remove the error messages. Dropbox is just a copy of a backup section for Scrivener projects. But that backup section is also backed up to Time Machine, iDrive and to external bootable copies on Carbon Copy ...

Unknown Error Messages Re Scrivener & Dropbox

I was working on a novel in Scrivener 3 on Mac when the two attached error messages came up one after another. I've no idea what they mean or why appeared but I may have hit a few keys together that caused it. The thing is that I use Dropbox only for storing Scrivener backups (both zipped and unzipp...

Re: Lost Folder Contents

Great! That fixed it. I wasn't aware of Cmd-1. Maybe I need to read the manual. Thanks. In the middle of editing the final draft of a novel so that was a bit frightening.

Lost Folder Contents

I updated to Version 3.1.1 (running on Sierra) a few days back and all of a sudden I have lost folder contents. That is to say, the binder looks normal and shows the individual files (scenes) within a chapter which open fine but click on the chapter folder itself or the manuscript folder and they ap...

Most Recent Backups

So the folder you use for storing backups doesn't get bloated you can select in Preferences to keep only the most recent backups, the choice being 3,5, 10 or 25. But if you elect to do this and you have say four projects in Scrivener but are only working on one of them for any length of time, isn't ...

Re: Changing Novel Name

Thank you both. 'Save As' works for me because it puts the right name at the top of the project as well as saving backups with the new name.

Initial thoughts on Scrivener 3

I've just found a way to upgrade my old Mac to Sierra, mainly so I could buy Scrivener 3. I've just installed it today and haven't found my way around it fully but have some initial thoughts. What attracted me most about the update was the Linguistic Focus facility for Direct Speech which works real...

Changing Novel Name

How do I go about changing the name of the project, the novel's name, and also the name for the backups? I sit day after day working on a project that has the wrong title at the top. It's probably very straightforward but I'm afraid of doing something wrong.

Transferring Scrivener to a new computer

I'm sure this has been covered before but I'm coming back to Scrivener after a long break and don't know my way round. In order to run Scrivener 3 I'm upgrading my computer which won't upgrade further than El Capitan . Currently I'm running Scrivener 2.8.1.2. First I want to set that version up on t...

Loading Preferences after a computer fail

I'm in the midst of a complete computer re-install after it crashed I'm trying to set up Scrivener as it was and transferred the Applications Support folder from my on-line backup to replace the newly installed one. When it comes to preferences, I'm not in a position to Save and Load Preferences so ...
