Re: KindleGen Out vs Kindle Previewer 3 in

It is now April 2021 and Scrivener still can't generate a Kindle mobi file. Still demanding that I upload Kindlegen, which no longer exists. I use your program to write and to publish, but now it's broken when trying to create files for my biggest customer. Seriously? I have been happy with Scriven...

Re: Confirm Quit

Yeah, I'd recommend an approach of that nature. It would be very unusual to ask for confirmation on quit, especially in a program that auto-saves like Scrivener. Maybe a preference (off by default) that allows such a confirmation to be used by people who want it and don't want to remap their key bi...

Re: Linguistic Focus Options

I'm loving Scrivener so far, but I was very disappointed the Windows version did not have the different options for highlighting words such as adverbs like the Mac version does. Will you be implementing this for the Windows version? It would be a massive help to have such a tool! That facility is, ...

Re: Scrivener users, where do you backup your files?

iCloud sync is a problem because synchronicity fails for the various parts of a project. How do we know Backblaze doesn't have that problem? Backblaze isn't doing anything unique that other backup programs don't do. On Linux and MacOS, you don't generally have volume-level snapshots without using e...

Re: Scrivener users, where do you backup your files?

In that sense [snip a bunch of spurious stuff that isn't really the same thing at all so why the heck did you bring it all up like it was relevant?] A lot of them can't find their zip backups, but I don't say they're not backups because of it. I really thought better of you. That's not even middle ...

Re: Moving Files and Folders Between Projects in IOS Version

Does the latest version of Scrivener iOS allow this moving (or copying) of files and folders between projects? I haven't found a way. It seems odd not to be able to, if that is the case. No. Scrivener for iOS does not allow you to open multiple projects at the same time (in part due to limitations ...

Re: Scrivener users, where do you backup your files?

No, Bob, *it is not*. It is a sync service with versioning (snip) It is *not* a true point-in-time backup service, where you have a discrete set of files that were all backed up at the same time (or close to it, depending on whether your underlying file system has something like a snapshot capabili...

Re: Scrivener users, where do you backup your files?

Dropbox absolutely is a backup location, especially so for zip backups. Even if you delete a file on purpose, it's still there for 30+ days. More than once, after buying a new Mac, I've restored from Dropbox. I'm puzzled what else we'd want from a "backup". No, Bob, *it is not*. It is a s...

Re: Usefulness of the iOS app?

Be sure to allow plenty of time for syncs to complete, notice immediately if anything seems off, and know what to do if that happens (restore from a recent zip backup). We've had some other users talk about Cirrus for the MacOS side to monitor iCloud sync status -- is there anything on the iOS side...

Re: Usefulness of the iOS app?

Hi Everyone, I have Scrivener on Mac and currently backup to Icloud. I'm fairly mobile and have been thinking about getting scrivener on iOS but I understand I can't use Icloud. I really don't want to use Dropbox because I already pay for cloud storage through iCloud. Am I stuck just using Scrivene...

Re: Usefulness of the iOS app?

Dropbox is free (currently) as long as you only log in on three machines, which is why I use it., One Mac, One PC laptop, One iPad. Actually, the iOS version of Scrivener doesn't even count against that limit. As long as you don't install the Dropbox client on your iOS device. If you do that, it wi...

Re: New search bar behavior is confusing and inconvenient, help?

Are you using Quick Search or Project Search? The manual chapter 11 covers the differences between the two, and you can access the manual from within Scrivener by pressing F1.

and the butt-clench flying a fixed wing through a downdraft at 500, oops now 200 feet. Many years back, I was on a United flight making our approach into O'Hare on a fairly turbulent day.

Re: Wind your watch

On the other hand, as a fire pilot, hydro line pilot, slinging diamond drills, gravity surveys with a bomb hanging off the bottom that needed to be at 100 feet, and on and on, I can suggest that if you don't know where you're going to go and what you're going to do when you have a problem (no matte...

Re: Wind your watch

Unless you're in a helicopter. It's funny you say this, because I just watched a demonstration last night of auto-rotation in a helicopter that was up at about 5,000 feet. For the first chunk of time, all the pilot did was keep calm and maintain their normal flight routine while talking through the...
