Re: Feedback Wanted: How do you structure your Scriv projects?

My main Scrivener project holds a Series with the following structure: Book folder, Chapter subfolder, Scene/section Document, besides the separate research and story data folders. Chapter folders set to preserve formatting; these folder-documents contain the <$Title> tag; and the font varies for ea...

Re: Scrivener for the exploding Android-market?

I'm also highly interested in an Android version with a local sync option. Is there a way to sign up to be notified when there's news or a beta?

Re: Scrivener for Android

If you like to use your mobile device for writing my advice would be to get used writing plain text MMD in Scrivener, sync your work to Simplenote and write using their app or web interface. You can add a background Dropbox sync so that you can write even when you have no internet connection. Any s...

Re: NOT a wish: ML color vampire

I too am glad for the reassurance that Scrivener won't be going monochromatic. Before I had heard of Scrivener*, I worked with a writing project management software on Windows for a while. One of my main frustrations with it was the black and white icons and toolbars. I have vision problems and afte...

Aren't comments (as opposed to annotations) already on the side in the Inspector panel?

Chapter Snapshot

I would like to be able to save a merge of the contents of a folder and its subdocuments to the folder's snapshots. This would give me a tidy way to reference a version of a whole chapter in its old order without resorting to cluttering the binder with duplicates. I would also be able, if a revision...

Re: Keyboard shortcuts for Quick Reference

What I really need is an option like the space bar to hit up that quick reference window, but without having to have the editor document-change that takes place when I go and select the document in question in the binder. Me, too. I'd also like right-click to show a binder item's contextual menu wi...

Scrivenings Mode: Deleted Text Reappears on Relaunch

Text deleted from a document in Scrivenings Mode is restored on re-open. If edits are made in other Scrivenings after the deleting, the restoration is random (sometimes the delete takes, sometimes it doesn't.) However, with the following steps, I can reproduce this every time: 1. create a couple doc...

Centered Page View

For some reason, page view is showing up off centered, aligned to the left edge of the editor. Is this expected? Is there any way to put the "page" in the center of the editor?

Re: Underwhelmed But Optimistic

You won’t launch Scrivener and be amazed if you don't get what you're looking at. Lee Powell's done a remarkable job of harnessing the core of Scrivener, but a beta is a beta (let alone a first ever beta) and a new user is a new user. If I had heard all the wonders of Scrivener 1.5 and then gone and...
