Common Binder asset between projects possible?

I am a long time user of Scrivener and use it for both creative writing and business writing. I have about six separate Scrivener projects that I use, 3 frequently and the others less frequently. I want to create a folder/container/repository in the Binder of my CREATIVEprojectONE that will also be ...

Re: Keyboard method for editing existing index cards?

I know this is crossing into the 'other folks software' lane, but you are aware there are a couple of good apps to assist that include Scrivener in their long list of Mac app shortcuts. I use both Cheatsheet (http://www.cheatsheetapp.com) which pops up a couple dozen Scrivener shortcuts when I hold ...

How do I change a template icon?

I have a template in the Project Templates list that has a hideous icon attached to it. I have deleted the template from Scrivener and in the Finder change the icon of the .scrivtemplate file to a more generic icon, but when I import that template again it still displays an icon that makes the name ...

Re: Setting up a Structured Story-Development Environment

Thanks again for your trouble to update the template to version 2.x and post it here. It imported perfectly and I've enjoyed looking through the old Power Structure Q&A used to invoke the bones of a story. Once again I will beseech the Forum owners and/or Moderators to create a top-level forum t...

Re: Setting up a Structured Story-Development Environment

I did notice it was posted some time ago, hence my whine about a top level forum listing ALL the templates (project level, character sheets, location sheets, etc.) that Scrivener users have generated and are willing to share. I've picked up many useful tools from the community that I believe really ...

Re: Setting up a Structured Story-Development Environment

I owned and used PowerWriter and PowerStructure before buying a MacBookAir specifically to use Scrivener as my authoring environment. I would very much enjoy looking through the PowerStructure template but I'm stuck and cannot get it to work. I have successfully used the Import Template function bef...

Re: Scrivener and box.com

Just successfully sync'd over 30Gb of files with Box and it was pretty painless except for the time. I did leave my computer running overnight, but all the files are there no problem. Haven't tried hosting a Scrivener project on Box, but the file sync overall is rock solid and without hiccups.

Write Now! (pop-up needed)

Can you create a pop-up the reminds me that I haven't written anything in my Scrivener project in (user definable interval). I normally HATE pop-ups, but I need something to gently remind me I'm being delinquent. And make it so I can't dismiss the pop-up until I complete (user definable word count)....

Re: Forum access OUT on 1/29/12?

I thought is was down in Apple fashion meaning that the Scrivener iPad app was about to launch. But I guess I should have known that wasn't right, I haven't even scene the release and invitations to the press conference show up yet. So still waiting (patiently, and all kidding aside, thanks for all ...

Re: New Novel Template

MimeticMotion, thank you for the succinct explanation. It worked perfectly. I do appreciate you assisting a guy being 'that newbie' and providing exactly the level of detail I needed to get this download/extract/install to work. Thank you also to the template author for sharing. Seems like the first...

Sorry to come in so late to a thread idle for many months, but I would love to look at the template discussed in this thread. I'm a new Mac user and Scrivener user (just purchased yesterday). I've downloaded every version of the file on this thread and tried to open it by importing and by starting a...
