Re: Not closing down properly: a message

I Appreciate the advice but I'm pretty sure I quit...certainly I do after I close my document because the dialog box to quit, watch video and something else is always there...anyway, if I don't quit, there is a little glow light on the dock underneath any program to show it is not closed. Did you se...

Re: Not closing down properly: a message

I just checked it again and it opens fine as a subfolder within the Writing folder today! I shall have to stay vigilant and see if/when it happens again. It's all too silly really - my only fear is that I could lose stuff which the warning does say but, to date, that has not happened. Till next time...

Re: Not closing down properly: a message

I thought i'd just answered but my reply disappeared....No, there was no 'quit unexpectedly' message at all. Nothing was untoward except my moving the Scrivener folder from one location to another. It does not like to be a sub-folder by the looks of it. When I moved it back, it opened fine again.

Re: Not closing down properly: a message

Sorry, I missed your previous question. I only mean the list of folders under 'Documents'. The path is the Home folder then documents or, under Go in the Toolbar, you can go straight to the Documents list. Mine just happens to be quite long :) Within that, I have a folder called Writing in which the...

Re: Not closing down properly: a message

No. And I did this before I went to work so to speak. It was just a 'tidy' thing. I do think that may have been what caused the problem at the outset for me - when i first got Sricvener I fiddle diddled about where to put it LOL

Re: Not closing down properly: a message

No, I moved it when it was closed. Just dragged it from my long Mac folder list into my folder called Writing. That's all.

End Note and Scrivener

Hey, Have you ever thought of making Scrivener work with EndNote? I tried to talk my daughter into using it for her academic studies but she has fallen in love with EndNote (which I can understand) but we can't see anyway of using it with Scrivener right now. Maybe I am looking at it the wrong way...?

Re: Not closing down properly: a message

I attach a screenshot of the error message that this topic was started on. What happened today was that I decided to put the Scrivener folder as a sub-folder in my Writing folder on the Mac instead of being on its own amongst so many others. when I went to open my book file, the error came up. I rel...

Headings

I may be a bit dim here in not being able to figure it out for myself, but do the binder headings stay with the text when you export? This question arises from a sudden fear that I'd lose my headings if I don't type folder and 'scene' headings in the body text they will disappear when I export or pr...

Re: word count visible in the binder

I'd like to suggest that a continuous word count be included although perhaps not in the binder. It is great to have the word count for each section of text but it sort of breaks concentration to have to seek out the total word count in the menu above...

Re: Not closing down properly: a message

I don't get any warning on closing. The dialog warning only comes up when I try to re-open...anyway, I'll keep a close eye and a log of when/how etc...Cheers, Lindy

Re: Not closing down properly: a message

Ok. I just saved and closed my novel project, opened another project then closed that without saving. I tried to open the novel project again and the warning came up again so I guess it is to do with a manual (not forced) save before exit?? When I say 'ok' Scrivener they says it is synchronising set...
