Re: New writing font for monospace lovers...

@SilverDragon I downloaded and fooled around with Victor Mono but I am still married to Source Code Pro!

Re: What font do you use?

I like a monospaced font and have used one since I first started using Scrivener. A monospaced font looks like old-fashioned typewriting and reminds me that I am writing and editing the text and should not be concerning myself with layout. I found this very useful to keep in mind when I first got to...

Re: [B40] Problems with Scrivener for iOS

I have now tested again. I wrote a piece on my laptop in Scrivener beta 41, using my new default of 12pt Source Code Pro. I left it to sync to Dropbox and then synced my iPad with Dropbox. The new piece of writing opened in Scrivener iOS in 12pt Source Code Pro. So, for me at least, using this font,...

Re: [B40] Problems with Scrivener for iOS

Apologies. I was typing on the bus and made 2 mistakes. I have an iPad AIR 2. Yes I am using iOS 13. The font I have installed, on Silverdragon’s recommendation is SOURCE CODE PRO. (Source Sans Pro is a related font I also use on my laptop. "Sans Code Pro" is a figment of my addled imagina...

Re: [B40] Problems with Scrivener for iOS

Hi, I don't know if this will help at all, but I recently wanted to install a font on my iPad, and I found this link: https://www.igeeksblog.com/how-to-install-fonts-on-iphone-ipad/ This offers a different way of installation, which I had not come across before, but it worked for me. I now have Sans...

Re: For those that use the scrivener 3 beta

On my iPad and iPhone I use Notebooks 10, pointed to the same Dropbox directory. That allows me to access the notes anywhere, and also lets me create tasks for Todoist for when I find something actionable. This also lets me have Notebooks 10 next to Scrivener on the iPad, which would be perfect if ...

Re: Getting the Most out of Scrivener for Chromebooks

In theory, CrossOver will allow you to run your Windows version of Scrivener on Chromebook. However, it's currently badly supported by the developer, and there are no reports of users accessing Scrivener on Chromebook this way. It's theoretically possible though. Errm, I think the OP Harrington jus...

Re: Lost work

The image you are showing says that it is "saving autorecovery". So whatever you are doing you are not just finding an rtf file and opening it in Word or Wordpad. I will try to be clearer. When Scrivener autosaves it saves updates to the actual project folder. I cannot remember where it sa...

Re: Lost work

In Scrivener, there is a big difference between saving and backing up. While Scrivener's default setting does only back up on closing the program, it does (or should) autosave every time you stop writing for a little while. So you should have two sets of files. You should find the saved project wher...

Re: Scrivener 3.0 for Windows - New new goal time date release something

They have given up. That is why there have been no new beta versions since Beta 30 was released last week.

Re: Just about out of patience

I have stayed away from these threads which contain little information and a lot of noise of the "you're horrid", "no I'm not" variety. This time I thought I would make one personal observation. I switched to the beta of Scrivener 3 for Windows on July 15, 2018, when the version ...

Re: .scriv file format unsupported on iOS?

If you only want to upgrade 1 project to use on iOS then you won't have to buy the desktop version. You can download it and use it free as a trial. You can then convert your project to the new file format, put it into Dropbox, and delete the desktop version. This should work and give you a project y...

Re: Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

Just to add to the evidence. I have an iPad Air2 running iPadOS 13.1 and I have had no problems with Dropbox syncing at all.

So perhaps there is indeed something in the theory that the bug is hardware related, and that that shows according to the age of the hardware...

Re: The red dotted line for misspelled words is barely visible

Thanks Devin: I confess that I at least had not noticed that. I switched just now and the wavy line is perfect, and perfectly visible! Now I will take some time this evening to sit down and go right through the preferences again to see what else I can find that I should have noticed earlier :D Owen
