Re: Importing URL and access date with new research file

I second this suggestion. This information is very useful.

Re: Import with other extensions

This has been requested before at least once (by me) and at the time the response (? from Keith) was that such a feature may be incorporated in an update. Perhaps by letting the user assign certain extents as 'text'. For me, I have files with the extent .log (and it needs to stay that way for other ...

Re: Published! Manuscript Submissions Tracker

Went to your website. Interesting program, but your image moves much to fast for any useful perusal, apart from downloading the program. Suggest you set it up so that the viewer can decide when to go to the next screenshot. As it is, it is very frustrating and could be a turnoff for any prospective ...

Re: Writer's Journal/Notebook

Canada has about 30 guns/100 residents whereas the US has about 88 guns/100 residents. These ratios are not even remotely similar.

Re: importing text files with a different extent

Jaysen
Nothing to be sorry about. I think it is a good suggestion. May allow for more flexibility.
I am willing to go along with many comments, as long as I can get Scrivener to do what I want (within the bounds of reason and propriety).

Re: importing text files with a different extent

Keith Somewhere between your response about adding .do and .log files and the next bit about writing code, I thought I had put in a message regarding when these changes would be made to Scrivener. Would they be in the 3.0 or in one of the pending updates? I am keen to use them but obviously there ar...

Re: importing text files with a different extent

Maybe you can, but you lost me in the first line about 'popping out to the command line" etc.
I will wait for the formal product. Scriv is to valuable to me to potentially screw something up.

Thanks anyway.

Re: importing text files with a different extent

I use them in the context of Stata, a popular statistical analysis program. In this context, all .log and .do files are plain text files. I imagine, but cannot substantiate, that .log and .do files are almost always plain text files as. It would be VERY nice to have .do and .log files importable int...

importing text files with a different extent

I use Scrivener as a laboratory notebook (and it is great for this purpose). Part of this is importing files of a statistical nature. These are command files and output files. They are all text files, but they have a different extent; either name.do or name.log When I import them, they are not edita...

Re: Best Scrivener link for Android Tablet

Mainly adding text files, document notes, and project notes. Linking to external files would be v. difficult externally and I think is best managed by having the file and the scriv file on the same computer. The same goes for external url's. I think mainly it would be text-creation as I read various...

Re: Best Scrivener link for Android Tablet

Thanks for the comments. I want to get a full fledged tablet, not a Nook or a Kindle fire. I want to use it for reading pdf's and writing notes, etc, that I can then link to a Scriv document. Ideally, I would like to have Scriv on a tablet, but get the impression that there will be one for iPad but ...

Best Scrivener link for Android Tablet

I am thinking of buying an Android Tablet (not sure exactly which one) and am wondering what software will work best to link into Scrivener, given that at present there is no Android version of Scrivener. What is a good editor. How do you eventually link what you write on the Tablet with Scrivener. ...

Multiple word search and find next

When I do a search for multiple words, e.g. dog cat, Scrivener finds them all and lists the documents in the binder. When I then use cmd-G to find the words in a document, I get an error beep. This does not happen if I search for 'dog' alone or 'cat' alone, but if I am searching for multiple words, ...

Wow. I never noticed that little bit at the bottom before. I just imported and let it split.
Many thanks.
