Disappearing Text / Docs

Hi, My wife's having a problem with Scrivener where whole paragraphs of typed text are disappearing when Scrivener is re-opened. Also, if she duplicates a doc in the binder (right click in binder, select duplicate) the copy either contains no text (except a single comma) or else the text appears to ...

Re: Document locking

I agree. Big toggle padlock on or off for whole manuscript or draft folder. Make it an opt-in preference to lock out those who would give Keith a hard time!

Re: Document locking

Thanks Robert, I use snapshots regularly - great feature - but it doesn't help if you paste content in the wrong place without realising. You could compile your 100,000 word manuscript without realising there are errors inside somewhere, so you won't think to revert to a previous snapshot. Locking t...

Document locking

Hi Keith and team. I realised, recently, that I had inadvertently pasted some text into a finished manuscript. I was using twin panes in the editor and referring to the manuscript in one pane whilst creating another document in the other. I suspect this may have happened before and now I need to go ...

Sync project & document notes

One thing I think would make the best writing software even better would be the ability to sync Project Notes (maybe document notes too) with external folder and Simplenote. I love the project notes feature in 2.x, and use them for many different uses (notes from an editor, a todo list for revisions...

Chapter break errors compiling "selection" of manuscript

When I compile full manuscript (select manuscript in drop down list in compile options) the novel compile preset outputs all my folders correctly as chapters. However, using same novel compile preset, if I select a subset of the manuscript - ie maybe the first few folders and their scenes, either by...

Reveal in binder (when multiple scrivenings selected)

Hi, Not sure if this is a bug or the way things are meant to be - but reporting anyway (hope it's helpful). 1) Multiple docs selected, for example, all docs in the manuscript selected (each individual doc and folder highlighted blue in binder) to perform a "formatted text search - annotations&q...

Re: Question about Novel Template

Thanks for your quick response Keith - should've known you hadn't ditched this feature!
And thanks again for Scrivener - don't know how I would manage without it.

How to make Chapter subtitles different to binder names?

In Scrivener 1.x, I think you could call the chapter whatever you liked in the binder and then set a different chapter subtitle for compile. I can't see how to do that in 2.0. I like descriptive titles in binder to help me follow the plot, eg if binder chapter name is: Boy meets girl under tree - fa...

Re: Just upgraded to 2.0

Can I add my thanks here too Keith. Enjoying it. Particularly like snapshots on the RHS - find I'm using them more now. I too paid and was unable to download yesterday. Did I make a fuss? No, because I was already enjoying using the preview. You had it covered.
