Re: First impressions using version 3 beta (Windows)

Got it, and I have also bookmarked that topic to refer back to.

Many thanks Devon!

Re: First impressions using version 3 beta (Windows)

Hi,

Sorry if this is a silly question but I have yet to find a link where I can download Beta 3. Can someone point me towards the link so that I can add something intelligent to the discussion :D

Thanks
Owen

Re: Dropping files in Scrivener App on Dropbox

Where has your new project come from? Did you create it on your Mac? If you created it on your Mac then you should just move it into the Dropbox folder where your Scrivener projects are (usually Dropbox > Apps > Scrivener) on your Mac, and it will then appear on your iPad and phone. Cheers Owen

Re: Having trouble finding old templates to add to updated scriviner

Just to confirm what JimRac said. I read Jim's reply and checked my Windows laptop. All the templates I have downloaded from other sites (Murder Mystery Novel template and so on) are in exactly the same location as Jim's. You need to find those on your old computer / hard drive and copy them into th...

Re: Tips on Syncing iOS with Desktop Scrivener

Why do you have to buy your software all over again? Surely you can just install it on your new computer if/when you decide to buy one? Owen PeterPenguin's point is that he does *not* want to have to buy a new computer. But as DropBox is dropping support on his older one, he won't be able to use th...

Re: Potential

Certainly Scrivener can be used for more than "literature". My approach to writing and editing posts for my website completely changed when I realised that it would make sense to do this in Scrivener. (This also meant that, for the past year, I have used Scrivener every single day, so when...

Re: A stupid question

Others may disagree but I think the answer is that, technically, you don't have to but, practically, you would benefit from doing so. If you leave the project open on the Mac, making sure it has synced your latest work to Dropbox, open it on iOS, add some more, sync it to Dropbox, return to the Mac,...

Re: Downloading new templates

Hi, When you download a template you should have a folder called something like Some-Template.scrivtemplate. If you have a zip file instead then unzip that and you should now see a folder with a .scrivtemplate suffix. Don't open it. Just put it on the desktop or somewhere where you can find it. Now ...

Re: HUGE Kudos to the Scrivener Team!

I agree with klester. This is indeed excellent news.

I will certainly download the beta and look forward to purchasing the final version whenever you deem it ready.

Re: Loosing contents from iOS to Windows

I agree with lunk. I work on both a Windows laptop and an iPad and sync everything between the two. I always make sure that I look at the Dropbox folder on my laptop, after I have closed Scrivener, and make sure that the Apps folder inside Dropbox has the green "I have finished syncing" ti...

Re: Not Responding - freezing up

This may or may not be relevant but here goes: I am using Windows 8.1 and after a recent Microsoft update I have noted that certain programs have started showing "Not Responding" from time to time. They freeze for anything from a few seconds to a few minutes and then spring into life again...

Re: Scrivener 2?

This is no version 2 for Windows, and my understanding is that there never will be. Instead Windows will jump straight to version 3, a short time after version 3 is released for the Mac. This will bring (approximate) feature parity to both platforms. I believe that this should all happen sometime in...

Re: Help! How to open existing Windows project on recently purchased iOS version.

Hi, I also purchased the iOS app to work with existing Windows projects. The difference between the ways we appear to work, however, is that I save all my work directly into Dropbox, and don't just back my work up there. To get the iOS app to see your original project you need to copy or move the fo...
