Re: Mechanical, Dongle-free Bluetooth Keyboard?

When you write "mechanical", Dr D, do you mean "really mechanical" (i.e. butterfly switches etc), or just "not on glass"? The reason I ask is that I have paired my iPad Pro with a Brydge. The Brydge is mechanical in the way that many keyboards are now mechanical, so per...

Re: Stupid Feature Idea - can you add typewriter sounds to the Typewriter feature?

Sorry to read that you've been having problems with this functionality, Jim. For obvious reasons I've no recent experience of Windows apps in this area, but in another recent thread about this topic, ClicKey was recommended. It seems from the developer's description like quite a "lightweight&qu...

Re: Typewriter Sounds in Full Screen/Composition Mode

As I mentioned above, I've been a user of Keyclick since 2008. Great tip - do you know if this is Mac:OS High Sierra compatible - work okay? Frustratingly, I can't give you a straight answer today. The previous Keyclick beta (1.3) did function perfectly well on my Macs, once I'd passed through the ...

Re: Stupid Feature Idea - can you add typewriter sounds to the Typewriter feature?

If you carry out a search of these forums, you'll find that this idea has in general terms been discussed before. I can't recall exactly what the response of KB or his colleagues was. But for myself, I hope that the feature isn't introduced to Scrivener - for several reasons. One is that I supect th...

Re: sync with Box.com app?

As an addendum: I'm assuming that Alden the original poster realises that for iOS/macOS sync only Dropbox is currently suitable.

My sentiments, also.

I don't know iMapping, but, to judge from the video, it appears to bear a slight resemblance to Curio, which I do use and value.

Re: I just upgraded to High Sierra. Scrivener opens but listed .scriv projects do not. Solutions?

If you are talking about the File > Recent Projects menu list, as Mark implies above, another cause of the problem may be that this occasionally gets "stuck". To see if that's the problem, go to the foot of the pane in System Preferences > General. Change the number of "Recent items&q...

Similarly on mine - no problem with the screen size. So I agree with marcoiac - go for the newer and larger model.

Re: Count number of search results

Scrivener includes a Word Frequency statistics tool. For Scrivener 3, see Section 20.1.3 of the Scrivener Manual (under the Help menu). I don't know whether it also handles symbols such as "@".

Re: Where do I start?

Both kewms and pigfender above hint or say that research can be a time-drain. Yes, indeed! I've met several would-be novelists, authors of factual books or intending writers of film-scripts in their second or third years of research, not having written a word. As Mr P says, "Research is fun&quo...

The three recent posts by KB on this page may be helpful in this discussion (best to read the one towards the top of the page first in order to make sense of the second and third).

Re: Save vs backup

Another reason: if you're saving, the saves will normally go to the same place on your hard disk or wherever you save them, under the same name (naturally). In the (unlikely) event that something has gone wrong with your project, but has not yet manifested itself, you'll save corrupt versions on top...

Re: Taskpaper 3

But then again, task management is basically an unsolvable riddle for me.

I am always finding myself not completely happy with any solution. Perhaps ...
