Topic: Selection Crossing Boundary in Edit Scrivenings

It seems to me that Scrivener would not be able to hook into system routines for Cut, Copy, Paste, Undo, etc. across file boundaries. Which is why, as I say, my first approach would be to consider concatinating the n relevant files. :-) Oh but keep reading. This requires a monumental refactoring of...

If the Cut function is offered, the user expects it to be available, and as you say, expects the Cut to be reversable. My first line of approach if I were programming this would be to check how many (n) files were involved in the proposed cut, concatinate them, inserting division markers, and make ...

I had no idea. Ok, nice.

jkr, Seems like you cannot, but you can use Open in External Editor (in the View menu, in the contextual menu, and via the key-command Command-Control-o) to open the pdf in Preview (if that's your PDF viewer). Then, either use "Save as...", or option-drag the small icon next to the title o...

I can replicate: the Print menu command does not work for me either, but the keyboard shortcut does work.

Well, yes, if you do it wrong bad things will happen. This is the case with everything, so I'd take it as read that if you're following these instructions you'd do it right Right but most things will not delete your entire Documents directory due to adding an extra slash to a directory name, an eas...

Hi, Unless you have very good luck, I would not recommend typing the above command into a Terminal window, using the "--delete" option, each time you wish to synchronize your project. The "--delete" and "--delete-after" options delete all files at the destination direct...

Perhaps one instruction needs to be added: you need to hit save in Preview. What works for me is: after selecting "Open in External Editor," and after annotating the PDF in Preview, choose Save. Then, if it was previously selected in the binder in Scrivener, de-select and re-select it. The...

I think to be sure, Pages 1.0.2 does support RTFD import and export. Apple just did not mention this "feature" in the export options, but it automatically exports RTFD when the document contains images. For importing, you simply use "Open with" in the Finder and select Pages. In ...

I see, that is annoying. I hadn't noticed since I tend to paste things directly into documents (and that will insert PDFs inline). So a temporary fix, at least for those whose default viewer is Preview, is to right-click on the PDF, select Open in Alternate Editor, and copy the desired page. I agree...

This works if the project is currently open in Scrivener: as in many Mac applications you can click the title-bar of a document window holding down the command-key, and this will show a menu displaying the file hierarchy wherein the document is located. Hope that helps...

What kind of integration is needed?

Just out of curiousity (and maybe this will start a useful discussion): what kind of integration is needed? I currently use Bookends with Scrivener...in other words, with the RTF files it produces. It seems to work well: I switch to Bookends with Command-Tab, find the citation, and then hit Command-...

Chris:

I also use a lot of vector graphics--I think Scrivener can be very helpful for putting together teaching resources which tend to have illustration. Can you explain more precisely what you mean by a "checkbox" or a pdf preview?

Congrats and update process

Congratulations! (Note that the auto-update from beta 6 won't work because I accidentally gave beta 6 the version number "1.0", so you will have to download the DMG.) I had no problems with this incidentally. I clicked update and it seems to have worked before I read your message... Anyhow...

"Promote" secondary editor rather than "close
