Re: Double Spacing

Keep in mind that 80% of users use only 20% of the features of any program. Just that 20% changes from user to user. So, what you consider an essential feature, others (such as me) consider a non-issue. And issues that others care about (such as source and link tracking), you don't. And there are so...

Re: Full screen

jp, remember that 80% of users use 20% of the features. However, that 20% changes from user to user. I'm quite certain that there's a priority list of some sort, and yes, it ends up that your particular desired feature wasn't as high as you would have put it, but I'm sure the Windows XP users are qu...

Re: Scrivener mentioned on Lifehacker

I can see where some people would consider 40$ to be a fair amount of money for a software program. A lot of games cost that much, and we're inundated with free software. But then you realize that this isn't some big software house. This is a couple of people in their garage spending hours to craft ...

Re: IT would be nice

Like the outline view?

Select a folder in the tree on the left-hand side, and you should get a corkboard. In the middle of your toolbar at the top of your screen, the third button will switch you to an outline view. (The second is corkboard, the first is a combined text view).

Re: Many thanks to Lee Powell...

nthing this. As a software developer, I know how hard it can sometimes be to track down those annoying bugs, and to find time to write that cool new feature, without breaking everything else along the way. For an early Beta, this is still solid software. I look forward to seeing it go only up from h...

Re: Hitting the top right "close" button

Everyone else is getting this. It's because it's emulating how the OS X version works. On Macs, there is a distinction between closing all the windows of a program, and closing the program itself. So, on Scrivener on OS X, closing the last project window prompts a new window to pop up for new projec...

Re: IT would be nice

File -> Recent Projects will show you what you've recently worked on, which is pretty close for a good number of people out there. ("Recently" can end up being fairly far back, if you haven't worked on many projects). Not exactly what you're looking for, but I think about the closest you'l...

Re: Root folders

My recommendation would be to keep all of the work for one complete story in one project. It's just easier to manipulate and play with and so on that way. Once you get to multiple projects, you're going to be juggling quite a bit, and have a lot of duplicated information, I imagine. However, in the ...

Re: Dictionary in Scrivener

The problems with the spellcheck and lack of support for alternate languages is a known issue in the Beta, and is one of the things that's being worked on, as I understand it. As for sharing with Office dictionaries, that's a really good question. :shock: Lee's probably going to have to answer that ...

Re: Using mac and windows versions

You have to download the 2.0 NaNoWriMo preview for Mac, convert your 1.54 file to 2.0 through that, then bring it over to Windows. You may also have to actually create a new project in 2.0 for Mac, and just copy everything from the old project to the new one. I discuss this a little further here: ht...

Re: Folder Organization

When you create a new project, there's a "Save New Project To:" field. You can change where it goes there.

Re: Import of Mac files makes folders.

Okay, I've done some various testing and such. Scrivener Mac 1.54 -> 2.0 -> Windows: Works Scrivener Mac 2.0 -> Windows: Works Curious. So I tried what you suggested, copying. I actually have two older Scriv files. One was a fairly byzantine thing with a bunch of embedded HTML files and pdf document...

Re: Import of Mac files makes folders.

I'll see what I can do about working on that, then. It'll (obviously) take me a little bit of time to see what I can narrow down.

Re: Import of Mac files makes folders.

Further data point: Copying the files(/folders) over via Flash Drive has no impact. If I run ScrivWin, and all I have is the 'Create New Scrivener Project' dialog open, and I select 'Open Existing Project', and then select one of the Mac 2.x files, Scrivener simply closes, and kills the process. No ...

Re: Import of Mac files makes folders.

Honestly, I don't think it's particularly unreasonable, once Mac 2.x is out and Win 1.x is out, to basically say "You cannot use Mac 1.x with anything but Mac 1.x. If you want cross-platform compatibility, you have to get Mac 2.x". Certainly, there will be some gnashing of teeth, but as yo...
