Dropbox backdooring / security

Given the huge security implications (and questionably legality of the product in the EU) recently revealed around Dropbox, are there plans to support alternatives? Aral Balkan on Twitter: "Dropbox backdooring Macs by phishing admin passwords could be the largest cyber attack by a US corp on EU...

Re: Compare Documents, Conflicts and Versions

Ah, snapshots... I need to look at snapshots! When I said straight forward... *cough*. I meant there are lots of prior examples, from a user perspective. I'm not sure I'd care to write one from scratch (actually, I know I wouldn't). I'd hope there would a lib somewhere as it's something I see it a f...

Compare Documents, Conflicts and Versions

Given we now have the superb iOS version of Scrivener I find myself jumping between devices frequently, which has thrown up a few headaches with synchronisation. Most of the time it works perfectly... if I remember to upload changes from iOS then download them on my MacBook (and visa versa). But I'm...

Unusual spacing in some templates

This was a problem on macOS version a while back, with resolution being to re-create the documents and paste the content in bit by bit (without the tabs). Now true problem is back on there iOS version. Previously fixed Character templates, for example, have odd spacing. iOS 9.3.3 iPhone 6S Plus imag...

Re: Too much bugs, not enough update

I'm not seeing any of these issues in particular on my Macs :/ Wondering if there's some common feature of your Macs (other software? old version of OS X?). There's not a lot to go on in your post. I have found that El Capitan itself as introduced some curious issues that affect even Apple's own sof...

Re: How to add character list

It's not something I've tried, but you could (as a last resort) use OS X's autocomplete - you can access it from the corrections tab in Scriveners options. I'm not aware of anything in Scrivener itself for doing this (but it should absolutely be on the wish list!) Update: Sorry only just noticed thi...

Crash on "Close All"

Attempted to "close all" from file menu while Scrivener running in full screen (but not comp mode). 1. Tried to close all. Nothing happened. 2. Wrinkled brow. Did I really click that? 3. Try again. Nothing happened. WTH? 4. Take out of full screen mode, just because. 5. Try again. This tim...

Re: Strange alignment in some character templates

I take back any implied criticism of Scrivener :roll: Also glad Apple fixed their bug; mind boggles how that got through their QA (surely stuff like this would be covered by their automated tests).

Thanks for taking the time to respond KB. My writing life without Scrivener would be miserable.

Re: Strange alignment in some character templates

Yes all my Macs on 10.11.2 - Interesting, existing character sheets still broken, but if I create a new one, it works. So I guess the corruption must get saved to the individual RTF files. I can recreate those easily enough. (I'm sure I tested this yesterday though... perhaps my head is also buggy)....

Re: Strange alignment in some character templates

Update: Also if you copy paste misaligned text into textEdit, you can then adjust the 2nd-line + wrapping in the ruler at the top, which fixes the issue; so it suggests that it's not Apple's code that's broken as such. Either they changed something, or Scrivener has a bug. It's ONLY scrivener that e...

Re: Strange alignment in some character templates

Any progress with this alignment thing? It has effectively made the character sheets useless to me now. Was trying to update character bios and it's an alignment mess. Even creating a new folder (not based on character templates) & copy pasting and the mess persists. Will have to rely on somethi...

Re: Dropbox vs iCloud for Scrivener

I'd been using iCloud for main store for my writing files for a while and it was fine until I accidentally opened Scrivener on one of my other machines. At which point it all got in a mess, with the .scriv file no longer appearing as a package (it became a folder). Anyway, these days I set Scriv's b...

Re: Magic Mouse - any good?

I use MM at work when coding and I love it, but I find a trackpad more handy at home. When I'm writing I don't really want anything that takes my hands away from the keyboard (I touch-type fairly quickly). I usual writing machine is a 2015 Macbook which has a large trackpad - no need for a mouse.
