I looked at the manual but it didn't help. Could someone kindly tell me how to actually use the imported files within scrivener. Thanks.

So you've successfully added them to the name generator, but need to know how to generate a name with them? Are you using Mac or Windows?

I tried importing the lists into my name generator but I've had no luck thus far. I keep getting errors about too many commas. I started out with the windows-specific files (as I should, being on a Win7 platform) but got repeated errors about there being 3 commas to many on each line.

So then I figured that maybe during the updates of the lists there's been a mix-up between the win and the mac lists. So I tried importing a mac list. Denied: 999 too many commas.

Any thoughts?

ETA: Ok, for some reason now it worked - it took quiiiite awhile to import the lists though and I got "Scrivener is not responding" prompts several times. But when I left the program running (though "not responding") after 15+ minutes I was alerted that the list had been imported. I have a fairly zippy desktop computer running Windows 7 64-bit btw.

Anyone know where I can get name files for Italian forenames (male and female) and surnames?

Wow. Amazing work.

Any chance of getting names and surnames for Ancient Rome, Egypt and Greece?

I know, Really old thread...

I just recently started writing a story that involves the Mob... So I'm looking for male Italian forenames and surnames (More forenames than surnames) My google searches for names have come up close to empty but I've only just started. Having a list within Scrivener would be a useful addition...

By the way, the Mac-version files work on the Mac Scrivener 3. More awesomeness!

Thank you, David!
