Ungroup in Corkboard: Retain Nesting

Dear Keith, Ive been working through your fantastic Interactive Tute for the first time, that's a real work of art! I'm really interested in the corkboard options, and the tute revealed lots of exciting possibilities. One thing that puzzled me and which I think, if changed, could lead to Scrivener b...

Re: Crash Scrivener for Mac and win a free copy or a refund!

Damn, with 2.0.0 I used to get regular crashes when I opened Freemind, but with 2.0.2 no such luck! ;)

But: A very admirable offer nevertheless Sir!

Specify a label colour?

Is it possible to define a totally new colour for a label? I realise there is a pretty wide palette of possibilities already, but trial-and-error testing (creating lots of new labels) gave me the impression that colours for new labels are still drawn from a restricted set (maybe 30-40?). I wanted a ...

Re: Synopsis to text

What do you mean, the reverse, putting text content into synopsis cards? Sure. Just use the `Documents/Auto-Generate Synopsis` command from right within Scrivener. That's a great command to know about to know about. But... I can feel it yearning for its mirror twin --`Synopses/Auto-Generate Documen...

Re: Synopsis to text

Raskali: Ioa pointed out to me recently that one way to avoid copying each individual synopsis in this situation is to compile (say) the folder containing all your synopses (tick the synopsis checkbox in "Formatting"). Then you can copy and paste the entire compiled document. But I actuall...

Re: Only today: Dragon Dictate 2 only 30 USD

Thanks Cadence, I was lucky (?) enough to get in early so I got the $30 deal. I used to use the Dragon product for Windows 10 years back and it wasnt too bad - but not good enough to use as main input mode - so Im hoping there's been improvement since then. My mild RSI has definitely not improved in...

Ah excellent!!

I had looked at the Formatting options in Compile but somehow missed that synopsis tick-box.

Option so index cards could be used for idea mapping

I teach young scientists how to write research reports, and I am always looking for better workflows for them to use. Now that Scrivener is multi-platform I want to utilise it as much as possible, because it has the greatest potential of any single program for this purpose. There's one component of ...

Re: Insert Image Shortcut (split from BEFORE POSTING...)

Thanks Geoff, much appreciated. You can set any keyboard shortcut you want for the menu items using the System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts pane. Obviously it's impossible to get shortcuts that work for everyone, but the System Preferences allow you to customise them so they better f...

Re: Highlighting keyboard shortcuts in 2.0

Simply by browsing the menus. :) Find what you want to change; type in the menu name precisely (including the dots, if it has them). Yes those dots are important!! And just to emphasise something about the syntax for these commands that seemed a bit counter-intuitive to me. If a menu option is foun...

Insert Image Shortcut (split from BEFORE POSTING...)

Hi Keith, Congrats on 2.0, it works great, had fun publishing pretend Kindle versions of my science writing course yesterday! The formatting looks fantastic. One thing I had been hoping might find its way into 2.0 was a keyboard short-cut to "Insert an Image", or even better yet, an icon o...
