Re: Is my work gone for good?

If you open up Scrivener preferences and look in the Backup area, you will see a link/button that will take you to the folder where your backups are being stored.

Re: Is my work gone for good?

Having followed the forums for some years now, I would say the most common explanation for experiences like yours is that the user has inadvertently opened a different copy of their project than they have been working in. So, my first question is /how/ did you open your project? Did you pick somethi...

Re: Split text into several files, reassemble it when compiling

Ah yes. I forgot about the need to do the equivalent of removing the pre and post newlines!

Re: Split text into several files, reassemble it when compiling

Marc, But why are you wildcarding so many of parts of the target string. The bit of html you are trying to replace will always be exactly the same. It is a constant. So take that exact string, flank it with newline specifications and then insert backslashes in front of any of the inner characters th...

Re: Compiling without any separators

It is possible to do this in Scrivener 3 without any workaround. You can make a custom compile that removes the minimal carriage return between text docs. In this way you can even have sentences that span documents and which will get fused on compile. The trick is to realize that the Replacements sp...

Mere recipe? Mere recipe?!!

I should think some of the ingredients might take offence to that.

Re: Inconsistent handling of "closed" ligatures.

I would not be surprised if the Word one looks okay, b/c Word is “faking” the italics — as it has historically done — by just programmatically tilting the underlying non-italic typeface. Scrivener italics is the real thing — the letter forms from the italic variant of the font. The Mac OS text rende...

Re: Seeking project advice on writing 2 versions of the same book in 2 languages

Writing both versions in parallel seems like a bad idea, because you will needlessly double your editing time. Any chapter editing you do later will have to be done in both language chapter drafts. Doing the complete book in one language first — and editing and rereading to your satisfaction — will ...

Re: Is Scrivener Actually Worth It?

The best advice anyone can give you is to moderate! You’ll get 30 days of actual moderation, so spread it out as moderately as you need to. Also work through the interactive forum on tutorials forum. There are many forum readers here so it works.

Re: How to insert my signature?

You could actually create a vector graphic signature and use an .eps file, I think. If it works suitably, it might give you a cleaner look. Absolutely; mine is an EPS. But the OP only has an iPad and no computer, So creating a vector signature would depend on what apps she’s got, etc. :) Mark I’m g...

Re: General Projects versus Individual Projects

The way you are working sounds like a good way to go for now. As Katherine says, no worries about it on the software side. Somewhere down the line you will start to feel the need for some separation and then you can do that. It is easy to move stuff you want to hive off into another project via drag...
