Re: Scrivener Manual will not open.

I'm breaking this up to several parts, to make sure I address each question. For the single document that has weird wrapping, does it have a right indent set? Hmmmm. Not sure. I had to look it up in the manual to see where those were. If I understand it right you set the indent via the Ruler? It app...

[Solved] Is there a way to compile only a single folder?

When I compile, I understand that I can select each document I want or deselect what I don't, but when you have a thousand scenes... okay not a thousand per se but you get the idea, it becomes rather tedious. Is there a way to compile using only a single folder? Or choosing only certain folders and ...

Excellent, thanks!

Re: Keyboard Shortcuts

I just want everyone to remember though that you can customize these as well. It's really simple to do in Windows (I don't know anything about Mac). Select Tools then Options and on the left hand side of the pane, select Keyboard . 1. Now the top of that pane has a text box that says Filter . You ca...

Re: How to do a Timeline in Scrivener

Now for my on-topic post! Many, many thanks! That's really intuitive. Just a question though, what do you write for scenes that you're not sure yet where in time they belong? Do you have a sub-folder of "Not Timed" or something like that? I've been wrestling with the timeline issue for a g...

Re: Please improve Scrivener's vocabulary

But then not everyone writes the same, which is a key benefit of Scrivener. I'm dylexic, and simply can't spell many words, I rely heavily on the system vocab when writing - from important document in S to this text here. In your case, you may want to search for a larger more varied "system di...

Re: Scrivener Manual will not open.

Okay well I backed everything up (which I always do anyway) uninstalled, rebooted and reinstalled. I was surprised that it didn't ask for my serial number again and was pleasantly surprised that all my files remained intact. Is it normal to remember serial numbers? Or is that a new Windows 10 thing?...

Re: Scrivener Manual will not open.

Funny you all should mention that about AV software conflicts. I was having a lot of problems with Avast on this machine. I've never had problems before but it became such a nusiance that I had to uninstall it the other day. You all have convinced me to reinstall. I still have the download, but shou...

Re: Weird line breaks

Ah, thank you. I'll bet the substitution thing is the answer. I'll try it later on tonight. My manual though isn't working. When I press F1 or go to Help > Scrivener Manual nothing happens at all. I'll make that a separate post though so others who also have this problem will find an answer. Many th...

Re: Highlight past tense?

That's probably a good reason to have an editor or beta to look over your work for mistakes. I think this is a common problem for all of us.

One day there will be, I'm sure, but I think we're still in the infancy of computers recognize mistakes.

Re: Quicker way of including html links?

Currently I have to highlight the text, then go to edit > link then paste the text in. It isn't the end of the world but seems unnecessarily long-winded as in many programs this option is available from a right-click. Am I missing something? Is there a keyboard shortcut? Whatever you do, do NOT use...

Hi there. Brand new user here and have already found a problem. :( I created a text document and the word "self-made" was split to: self- made If I delete the hyphen to "selfmade" the line break disappears, but I can't even select the hyphen itself. If I try to highlight it, for ...
