Re: Thesauraus Link

Best, easiest way I've found (at least with iPad Pro) is to use your voice. Say: "Hey Siri, what's a synonym for [word you're searching for]? It brings up answers from a Wolfram dictionary. True, you need to be online, but it's a super-quick lookup. Sometimes the best shortcuts don't involve ke...

Transferring .scriv. Files directly from scrivener IOS to wireless flash drive

Is there any way to transfer .scriv files directly to my wireless flash drive? I know I can back up the project files to Dropbox (and I do) but I've also gotten used to saving the files on my flash drive on my MacBook. Now that I'm using the iPad Pro and have a wireless drive, I'd like to save the f...

Re: How to delete the hyperlink in a document.

Aha! The trick is to select the word before the link and extend the selection to the end of the link. Otherwise, you never get to see the submenu choice.
Thanks.

Re: Keyboard Shortcuts

Thanks Keith.
I could've sworn Cmd. +A didn't work the other day but it does now. Pilot error, I guess.

Re: Thesauraus Link

Don't have a DEFINE selection. I do have a LOOKUP choice but that will allow me to get to (among other choices) a dictionary, but not a thesaurus, so the question is does anyone now a good thesaurus online that might link up or recommend one I might download).

Thanks. For everyone's comments.

Thesauraus Link

Wondering if anyone has found a way to link a thesaurus (either offline or online) to Scrivener IOS with the equivalent of a right-click tap and submenu, or other shortcut.

Keyboard Shortcuts

I'm aware that holding down the command button on an external keyboard gives me a list of context-sensitive hints. Great, however, I'm curious as to any others that might be available, that might map to the MAC OSX version. Especially looking for a "select all" key combo.

How to delete the hyperlink in a document.

Of course I could simply delete the text and then type it in, but since so many are ported from my Mac OS version, I just would rather hit the link button and remove the hyperlink but keep the text. It allows me to "edit" the link, but if I try to erase the link completely, the "Done&...

Re: Global Find and Replace... with COLOR!

I just want to know can I find the menu choice for global search and replace in scrivener for iOS? I know this sounds dumb, but I'm missing something and need to do a global search and replace within a project. So far as I know, there's no global replace in Scrivener iOS. Global search, yes -- pull...

Re: When "cork" isn't cork

I agree completely with this disagreement. Bring back cork, or at least a better contrasting color. [quote][I strongly disagree that the actual corkboard background would look out of place! And as for old-fashioned, that's why I LIKE it. I'm very disappointed to learn that I won't be seeing it on my...

Links to internal documents within Scrivener Project

Somehow when syncing my IOS Scrivener with my Mac OS version through Dropbox, I seen to have lost internal links to other documents within the same Scrivener project. Not a problem with links to external web pages.
What might I have forgotten to do?

Thanks,

Don.

Re: Exporting "styles" created in MAC OS version to IOS

Thanks. As usual. I figured it out 10 minutes after I posted the question. Need to go on the Mac, format styles and export.
What a bargain. $20 got the program and now another 1200 for the iPad Pro. :-)
