Re: Not really a problem, just a question

Ah, thank you! Yes, I understand about not screwing with the files through other programs. The situation that comes up is when I want to share a single file with a fellow writer for feedback or something like that. I will make any changes I decide on using Scrivener. I realize I could probably use S...

Not really a problem, just a question

How can I find out the underlying 'real' file name of a particular document in Scrivener? I mean the one like "232.rtf." I've tried searching on the manual for 'file name' but no applicable info showed up. So far the only way I've found is to open the document, make some trivial change, an...

Re: I have been using a pirated Scrivener version.

Another way to getting straight: enter (and 'finish) NaNoWriMo. They've offered a 50% discount to winners at least the last few years.

Re: Addding "convert format to default text style" button?

Thank you for the info -- good to know the program is looking to protect clueless users from themselves.

I'll have to cogitate more on what keys to use -- my aging memory makes me prefer codes I can hook some meaning to.

(I'll stop pestering you now, promise.)

Re: Addding "convert format to default text style" button?

Whoops, follow up question: I think I want to go with the custom keyboard, but how do I make sure I am not reusing a combination already assigned to some other function? Will the program prevent me from doing that? Or at least warn me? Or is there an alphabetical list of all assigned key sequences I...

Ah, thank you both! I will check out both options and see which I find easier to type. :)

Addding "convert format to default text style" button?

That's about it: I want to add a "convert format to default text style" button to the main tool bar, but so far as I can tell, this isn't possible. :( Truly, that seems to be one of my most used functions, and having to click through the Edit drop down menu gets tiresome. Especially since ...

Had to reenter serial number on update?

As suggested, I dled the latest version and installed it, manually, and on running it said my trial period was expired. Fortunately I knew where to lay hands on my serial number/name. Anyway, is that the way it's supposed to work? I thought updates brought over your preferences and project lists and...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 3: With a Vengeance

Pigfender, a thousand thank yous for running this magnificent project for us again! It's a blast, and wonderful mental exercise. (Especially when you're utterly ignorant of the genre. I'm another of those who has never seen the Godfather or any other gangster movie or read a single gangster novel.) ...

Daylight savings time! I'll bet that is what did me in!

I was diddling around and then someone posted something and I realized I was already late. :(

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 3: With a Vengeance

I *know* you'll be importing the files into Scrivener, and massaging the output, but we might as well submit in whatever form is easiest for you. And I've forgotten what I used last year. :( So: curly quotes or straight? Indented paragraphs or blank lines between? .rtf .doc .txt .what? Italics as, a...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 3: With a Vengeance

I think having the slightly 'different' styles from non-native English speakers would be charming. :) OTOH if it concerns the writer, or Pigfender, or whoever: if you can promise to get your piece in a couple of hours before the deadline, I'd be happy to give it a fast going over and tweak grammar o...
