Import words to dictionary?

Can one import words (from Word, OpenOffice or so) to the dictionary? Or use dictionaries from Word / OpenOffice?

Re: Create a document template?

Hmmm, well, well, yes, yes, of course, thank you, I do not have any idea of programming and such...so just one activity more to delete the text (a single character appears to be enough) after creating a new item from a template...obviously just exclude the template folder / its content from being cl...

Re: Create a document template?

Suddenly Scrivener works again without removing the template folder, any idea why, sometimes it runs well, sometimes there is no response. I haven’t tried just a list, all by itself with no text typed into at least one line might qualify as “empty formatting”. Hmmm, somehow sounds like a strange beh...

Re: Create a document template?

Many thanks. After having done step 4 suddenly Scrivener did not work again any more ("No response" all the time), I cannot access the template folder to delete it, may that is the cause. Is there another way to remove that folder? Note that based upon how Scrivener cleans up empty files o...

Create a document template?

How could I create a template (with e.g. special formattings) I can use for documents / folders (not projects) like one can do with Word? So instead of creating a new default document / folder shown in the editor when pressing STRG+N I want to open such a template being opened in the editor.

Re: Error message when importing web page

Thank you for the link. Yes, copying the web page content to the clipboard and pasting it to the editor does not work either and I could not find another way. I sometimes make screenshots (to the clipboard) and paste the image to the editor, that is quite convenient and fast. Or save the web page as...

Re: How can I get the cursor into the editor (with a shortcut) without using the mouse?

Yes, that is a good procedure. But since I usually do not know how many new items I needed, I would have to repeat the procedure and / or delete items created not used at the end. And the work flow - just create an item when and where you need it and add the text - would be much more convenient, I g...

Scrivener suddenly does not work anymore?

Scrivener suddenly does not work anymore. It runs slowly / sluggish, shows "No response" all the time, clicking an item / button causes hesitations of 5, 6 seconds or so, searching shows "No response" without stopping so I have to close Scrivener with e.g. the Task Manager. Re-in...

Re: Move / add items in search results?

Have you tried it yet? That’s not how it works. When this option is disabled, group views revert to working how they do in the binder: if you switch to viewing folder text (Ctrl-3 to flip the Outliner off for instance), then that is how you will go on viewing folders until you press Ctrl-3 again. T...

How could Scrivener automatically fit the width of an image to the width of the editor (the right part of some images are cropped / not shown and there obviously is no horizontal scroll bar)?
