Re: Tab problem in UK stage play project.

Hi and thanks for your response. Here are 3 screenshots from act one in which the dialogue tabs work fine. And here's 3 screenshots from act two (the dialogue isn't what it will be - it's just nonsense I've written! ) The extraordinary thing is that I've not change any of the settings since my first...

Tab problem in UK stage play project.

I'm writing a play and have finished the first act. The tab formatting worked fine in that act. When I pressed 'new document' to start act two I didn't change the script setting format that I used in act one. But as I began to write in the new document (act two) the dialogue that went over one line ...

Re: italics

Thanks for both replies (I can't see how to reply to earlier comments!)
I've discovered that I slide just above the keyboard to reveal the options.

italics

I'm new to using Scrivener IOS on my iPhone 6. I can't see how I can switch from regular to italic typeface.
I'd be glad of any advice.
Thanks,
martin.

Re: syncing mac with dropbox

That seems unfair. One can have the app on 5 devices except a phone :(
It's not an inexpensive app for either a Mac or on IOS.

Re: syncing mac with dropbox

Thanks for your message. I did check the L&L instructions for connecting Mac Scrivener with IOS but, being fairly clueless technically, I had no luck.
I've opened Scrivener for IOS on apps but it's a paid one.
So do I have to buy the IOS app even though I bought the Mac version?

syncing mac with dropbox

Hi, I'm trying to sync my Mac with Dropbox so I can use Scrivener on my iPhone. But I can't see a sync button on Dropbox either on my Mac or my phone. I've tried to upload a Scrivener file but it shows greyed out. I'd much appreciate any suggestions or advice as to what I'm doing wrong or not doing ...

Re: Tab space

Hello, Thanks so much for your response. There's no colon in my script. Another member also sent suggestions and screenshots to illustrate different options I might choose. And advised me to read the tutorial manual where formatting scriptwriting, including tab settings, is explained. I'll do that n...

Tab space

Hi and kindly indulge me I'm technically illiterate :) I'm using the Stage Play UK Format for the first time. Everything's been going fine as I fill in the left side panel with front matter, Act, Title, Characters etc; but now I'm writing the play itself. You can see from the screen shot that I've w...

Re: Time insert?

Hallelujah! Yes, indeed, control, option, command, forward slash works!
Well, with your help and clear guidance, others contributions too, I'm now able to insert the time with easy to remember commands.

Many thanks,
best wishes,

Re: Time insert?

I do feel like a schoolboy who's trying his best to get his homework right to please his teacher. It's moving into the territory of me not only failing to find the answers but also not understanding the questions! :roll: Anyway - here's a screenshot which, I hope, shows the greyed-out section. I've ...

Re: Time insert?

Yes, I understand that. When I open Scrivener and place my cursor on services it shows 'no services apply'. It seems I'm doing something wrong when I've clicked on WordService in services and entered the shortcut. Perhaps there's an 'apply' that I'm missing? This is all a bit "Houston I've got ...

Re: Time insert?

Thanks very much. I clicked the word service time box and added the shortcut you suggested i.e. control, option, shift, T. But nothing happened when I tried that in Scrivener. I appreciate your help and patience but I think it's probably easier if I just type in the time myself! I checked my journal...

Re: Time insert?

Thanks for your suggestion. I've downloaded Word Service from the iTunes link but I've no idea what to do next :D. I did what was suggested i.e. opened my systems preference, then keyboard, shortcuts and services. It lists several Scrivener things but I haven't a clue which box to click. I am pretty...
