Re: Back Structuring for Quicker Saving

This is a direct consequence of project size. The backup makes a complete copy of the project, so a larger project will take longer. One option would be to import research files as aliases, leaving the materials outside the project, but linked. Another option for images specifically would be to stor...

Re: Scriv 3 beta Compile STILL not preserving font in ePub??

Another potential issue is that e-readers generally allow the user to specify their preferred font, overriding the author's choice. It's very difficult to force any kind of formatting in ePubs.

Re: All confidence in Scrivener (3 years worth) lost, it is garbage

In neither of your posts did you specifically mention your zipped backups. These are what's supposed to save you in events such as this. Second this. I don't care what software you're using, preserving the state of your work immediately before a crash is going to be dicey. The whole point of a back...

Re: Project won't open

Try opening the project directly from Finder, rather than the Recent Projects list.

If it still crashes, please reset the project display settings, as explained here:

Re: Activation Issue Again

I have spent a miserable morning trying to upgrade to v3. You continue to: - Refuse to acknowledge I have a legal license - When I recover it , I get purchase and license information - When I then attempt to update by entering the license no into v3 it tells me that the license is invalid. I have p...

Re: Project won't open

18.6 MB is not particularly large. Certainly not so large that you should need to split it into pieces. And subfolders in the Binder don't make the structure on disk any more complicated. What exactly happens when you try to open the project? An error? A crash? Nothing at all? While it's possible to...

Re: 'Alias' for Binder items?

For extra bonus coolness, a Quick Reference pane can also show Inspector information for the document. See the dropdown menu at the top right.

Re: I guess Scrivener wont open file or backup

Please install Scrivener 3.2.2, our Big Sur compatibility update. That should resolve the problem.

You can download it here: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/scrivener/download

Re: 'Alias' for Binder items?

Update : Using the "Open as Quick Reference" feature with the Project Bookmarks option has prompted me to re-think how I've organized my Binder to begin with - Thank you again!! Yes, this is what I had in mind. Also note that you can display the Project Bookmarks as a sidebar to a Quick R...

Re: "Could not save project document" error coming up every minute or two as I work

ETA - I tried saving to a different Dropbox location, where I got the same problem, then later to my local drive, and the local drive version seems to have stopped giving me the error--so I hope that's helpful to anyone else who's experiencing this! However, long-term, I need to be able to save thi...

Re: What about my established folder structure?

As noted, you could move your entire project folder structure so that it's a sub-tree of the iOS sync folder. Or you could change the iOS sync folder to point to the top of your project folder structure. Or you could trade the iOS device in for a MacBook Air.
