Re: RFTD format for ScratchPad

Thanks for the explanation! Boo on Apple for not having their software fully supporting a standard format.

Re: RFTD format for ScratchPad

Oh, I can paste pictures into RFT document? Interesting. I thought on the Mac side, it always forces me to convert to RTFD (at least when I'm using TextEdit to do that. I haven't tried elsewhere). Update: You're right! Yippee!! I also tested this in TextEdit. When I create a new document, type some ...

Bug: Convert Webpage to Text

When you use the Convert Webpage to Text command, the webpage document does appropriately change to text format, but when you close then re-open the project, you'll discover that the file that was converted is gone! File not found! Here are my steps: 1. Add Web Page (I used this : https://www.inside...

WebArchive format deprecated (Mac) & .MHT format (Windows)

For years I've used DEVONthink or download webpages although I've stopped using the WebArchive format long ago for many reasons including that it is deprecated. (See: https://developer.apple.com/documentation/webkit/webdatasource/1529856-webarchive?language=objc ) I recently started capturing web co...

Re: RFTD format for ScratchPad

Ah, that's too bad.

The only reason I do use the RTFD format is to enable the pasting of graphics from time to time. Using RTF format is ok most of the time.

What a bugger, with these cross-platform compatibility :)

RFTD format for ScratchPad

On the Mac, .rftd is a format that's available for ScratchPad notes. However, Scrivener for Windows does not recognize this format. It seems that RFTD is not a format fully supported natively in Windows. However, can there be a workaround of sorts where Scrivener Windows accesses the .rtf file withi...

Re: Is there documentation on the differences between the Scrivener 3 Windows and Mac versions?

Perhaps "workflow" differences might be too broad a term. I really meant in terms of its UI and how things are organized. To be honest, in all these years of dabbling with Scrivener (which is at a very basic level), I'm still using it to jot down ideas, connect notes and thoughts, and mind...

Re: Is there documentation on the differences between the Scrivener 3 Windows and Mac versions?

I second having this documentation whether fully fleshed out or informal and incomplete :) I have Scrivener on all 3 platforms (Mac, Windows, iO S) though I mostly use it on the Mac and iOS. I only bought the Windows/Mac bundle back in 2017 when my computer at work became a PC. I don’t use Scrivener...

I've not tested it extensively, but so far it seems to work ok.


Wow! I'm going to have to try this! Thanks for posting!

Re: iOS 14 and Scrivener

I took the risk and updated both my iPhone and iPad Pro. I can't say I have extensively used Scrivener iOS under iOS 14, but so far it seems to work. I haven't encountered glitches yet. When/If I do, I'll write back.

Re: iOS 14 and Scrivener

I ask because it's been a long time since Scrivener iOS has been updated.

iOS 14 and Scrivener

iOS 14 is slated to be released today. Any idea if it’ll break current Srivener iOS functionality?

Scratch Pad on Scrivener for iOS

Any possibility of adding the Scratch Pad feature for Scrivener on iOS? Someone recommended using Drafts to access the Scratch Pad folder (I have it in the cloud). A good workaround, perhaps, but it also seems a little silly to have a text editor for what is already a text editor (admittedly, beefed...

Re: Scratch Pad on iOS or alternative workaround?

Hmmm....as I think about it, it seems silly to have to get ANOTHER text editor just to use the Scratch Pad feature. It's like getting a text editor for my already text editor.

Scrivener on iOS itself should suffice. I'll see if I can submit this as a feature request for the next minor update.
