Re: Index Card 4 - Corkboard Writing App for iPad

As a temporary solution (before Scrivener for iOS arrives) I'm using Parallels Access. It's expensive (subscription service) but I already use it to access other apps from my laptop on my iPad – so thought I'd give it a go with Scrivener. It works very well. The Parallels Access app is cleverly desi...

Re: Index Card 4 - Corkboard Writing App for iPad

I bought index card 4 thinking I could "sync". I've abandoned index card for iOS now as it is very much a one way process if you use formatting. Useful if you start a project in index card and want to export to .scriv to continue in Scrivener. Not good if you want to hop back and forwards ...

Re: Scrivener for iOS - When?

Hands up – I confess to checking the twitter feed and forum WAY too often for Scrivener iOS updates. It can't come soon enough – but having spent months trying to get simple websites up and running I understand how these things always take longer than expected. Just wanted to add my support. So exci...

Re: How can I NOT number my Prologue?"

Just tried this - it works. I just need to get the formatting of "Prologue" to match the other chapters (Caps and several carriage returns after) and insert a page break somehow as it is appearing on the same page as the front matter before it. But I assume fiddling with the other formatti...

How can I NOT number my Prologue?"

Hi, Trying (but failing) to work out how to have chapter numbering begin after my prologue (so Prologue just says "Prologue", and the next (1st) chapter says "Chapter One". I am using a Folder for each chapter and scenes as documents within that folder. The prologue is a folder w...

Re: Howto: inconsistent but required pagination

Have tried to make sense of suggestions in similar posts but failing! So another post - (sorry) I have a novel with the first chapter labelled "Prologue". How can this first chapter not be numbered? I want the second folder in the manuscript to be labelled "chapter one". At the m...

Re: Disappearing Text / Docs

Hi Keith, My wife's still getting odd / inconsistent behaviour in her scrivener document and is too afraid of losing stuff to continue using it. I suspect there is corruption in her file that Scrivener can't sort out. Before she gives up on Scrivener, I'm going to try exporting all files in the sciv...

Re: Disappearing Text / Docs

Thanks Keith - I will pass this info on. I deleted all the other files before sharing the file (she didn't want me emailing her manuscript!), but I assume turning on the safeguard feature as you suggest will sort out any existing problems in the other scenes within the file?
Thanks

Re: Disappearing Text / Docs

Thanks Keith - I will follow your instructions. I think this must have happened to several files as there was other text appearing instead of the comma (at times). Any idea how this safeguard could have been turned off and is there anything I can do to prevent this happening by accident in future? T...
