Re: iPad air, mini or pro?

I'm actually wondering if there's a portable keyboard out there that feels like a traditional mechanical keyboard, and can be used for an iOS device. Everything out there seems to want emulate the typing experience on a MacBook; this is fine, unfortunately I tend to make more typing errors on the n...

Re: iPad air, mini or pro?

I have an iPad Air 2 with both a Zagg Folio and Zagg Slim Book keyboard case and its almost as good as my MacBookPro after loading Scrivener on it. The keys are nice and tactile like the Apple keyboards, and if I'm in an area of low light I can turn on the underlit keyboard lighting. It runs about t...

Re: sync stalled

Silly question, but are you leaving the app open, and the screen on while it syncs? When I first loaded Scrivener on my iPad I had like 2.1k files to sync and it was taking forever. So I closed my case (and it put the screen to sleep) and promptly paused the sync. Later when I opened it back up and ...

BUG: Binder out-of-sync with edit window on launch

Level: Cosmetic, Annoying I have noticed a change in the Binder behavior since the first setting up sync with Dropbox for iOS intergration with v2.8 (26295) On launch, the Binder is not pointing to the current open location in the edit window. It began after the first time I re-opened Scrivener to a...

Re: Dedicated Conflicts and Comparison Tool

Keith has hinted that version 3 of Scrivener will be(…)it'll be a lot easier to figure out the chronology of the versions. God news and great strategy for dealing with intentional backups, but it doesn't help when the muse is running hot, you grab the nearest device and load the project only to get...

The tool as I have described, would do this. Might be some clean up but nothing a solid editing pass couldn't fix.

Dedicated Conflicts and Comparison Tool

Since the launch of the iOS version, I've slowly started migrating my working projects to Dropbox. Once this process began, I noticed that I have in some cases 7 or 8 different location copies of the same project. Some are Scrivener created copies because the Scrivener thinks I've got the project op...

Reproducable crash... Multi-displays

I'm putting this here for what its worth, My setup is likely rather rare. So far I've had this crash happen twice. As long as I can remember to wait to turn on my connected TV until after Scrivener closes, this doesn't happen. ----- Powered up secondary display (Insignia 32” HDTV connected via Elgat...

Promote, Demote containter

I have been looking and looking for a means to Promote (move left on the binder) or Demote (move right on the binder) a specific item or container. You can drag and drop, but you have to move it vertically which can effect the order. Specifically I'm hoping for something off a context menu (either o...

Re: Character names recognised by spell checker

I was going to ask for something similar.... Being into Fantasy and Science Fiction, there are way too many characters, artifacts, concepts, locations, etc al that don't appear in the dictionary. There are also times when I don't want to just 'learn' a new dictionary with every new project either. I...

An annoyance/whine for new feature

While working on one of my languishing manuscripts, I noticed something that started to bug me. You see, when the muse isn't on duty I fall into the trap of read and invariably revising what I've written in order to refresh my memory of the vision(that my excuse and I'm sticking to it). So I tend to...

Re: Where has the iOS Wish List Gone?

I haven't been working on the iOS version, Jen has - I work only on the Mac version. :) It's going to be awesome, but it will be very stripped down when compared to the Mac version, because iOS is not capable of running a full version of Scrivener. It will be a great mobile version of Scrivener, th...

Re: Mountain Lion: Contacts access request box

I just thought I saw an oversight (not really even a 'bug') and I created a monster... Have you thought about adding a section in the tutorial/first project file about making sure you have a contact in your contacts with all of the information that Scrivener wants to look up? (It'd also have the sid...

Re: Mountain Lion: Contacts access request box

Thanks for the info and quick reply. I figured it was something like that. The new verbiage on the request dialog is nice, succinct, and just the sort of reassurance I'd like to see.
