Re: Srivenings

Dear Not Kevin,
You are wonderful, thanks so much...I'm away in my new writerly home. Well, until the next time this old brain can't figure something out which I hope is not too often. I really appreciate your support.

Srivenings

Hi, I has taken me a while to figure out how the old scrivenings works on 2.0 but in checking it out, I found one thing that to me would be good to have...There are two things here: firstly, when I enter Scrivenings by selecting several scenes, it does not seem to take all of them into full screen m...

Re: Problems with saving on 2.0

You are too clever. I unclicked 'use label colour' and, bingo, yellow cards. They are not quite as yellow as in the newer projects but they are not 'dirty' looking. Thanks heaps.

Re: Problems with saving on 2.0

Thanks, now the Templates are transferred...I have another question. I have spent hours today trying to customise fonts and colours (part of my learning more about Scrivener anyway) but although I have done that, although all projects now look the same, there is one which will simply not change the ...

Re: Problems with saving on 2.0

Thanks a lot. I was doing 'save as' and it would not go to the Project Folder - that's when the 'error' messages popped up but went to the Mac Documents folder as 'recovered' but it was empty! I've now set 'save as' to Lilbrary/application support/Scrivener/bakups but as Scrivener is already saving ...

Problems with saving on 2.0

1st screenshot.jpg screenshot3.jpg screenshot.jpg Hi, I have just downloaded my upgrade to 2.0 (congratulations on it BTW). Two strange things are happening. Firstly, all files now suddenly seem to have a bak file as well and I'm not sure if Scrivener is just doing that or if it was part of the new...

Re: Not closing down properly: a message

I half suspected the size of file might be related to .txt versus the word thing. I've made a note to compare the files as asked next time the problem occurs - let's hope it doesn't :) Happy Easter...

Re: Not closing down properly: a message

Hi, I received your long message this morning and find that BinderStrings.xml file is 111kb as at today. Does that tell you anything??? It doesn't sound like a lot - the Word file I transferred there was 245 kb before I added several thousand words and another project file altogether...The error sti...

Re: Not closing down properly: a message

Nope, none of those things. I run disk utility quite regularly for the permissions thing and do other cleanup tasks occasionally as well. I haven't had the problem at all lately and I just opened Scrivener and a file and closed the file and quite Scrivener and it all worked fine. Please don't worry ...

Re: Not closing down properly: a message

No...no quit unexpectedly message. No message at all. I just close the file, quite Scrivener and, when I open it again the error message (sometimes) comes up. It hasn't done it since my last post - I'll post again next time it happens. :)

Re: End Note and Scrivener

Hi KB....My daughter has been playing with EndNote and Scrivener and sent me this - Anyway, as an FYI - the scrivener guy said you need to (in step 4 of the doc you sent me) compile as draft (in RTF format) then resave to word or whichever wp program you're using... that's not necessary - you can co...

Re: Not closing down properly: a message

well, I do use Snow Leopard and the effect when typing is quite weird...I know if I contact Apple they'll just say Scrivener is not their software!! I wondered if it is because now I have a largish document it had slowed down or something like that It seems especially like 'sticky keyboard' when I a...
