Re: Dropbox Sync Issues

The *save* interval is driven by Scrivener's autosave time, which can be found in the Scrivener -> Preferences -> General -> Saving pane in Scrivener 3. The *sync* interval is entirely determined by Dropbox. From Scrivener's point of view, the Dropbox folder looks just like any other hard drive loc...

Re: Dropbox Sync Issues

Does Scriv 3 sync with a higher frequency that now causes DP issues? To me this kind of conflict suggest that you are too quick to close the PC/Mac, before everything has had time to be saved, uploade and backed up. Dropbox isn’t always instantaneous. It could be, sure. I guess I'll keep an eye on ...

Re: Dropbox Sync Issues

The conflict claims your fritz box has a modified version of the binder, you use a home network storage, does it use a dropbox plugin? You may want to double check what devices and apps have access to dropbox: Ah, that's just the name of the local PC I'm using. (Mac, sorry). It's got Dropbox on it ...

Re: Dropbox Sync Issues

Are you sure you have always closed the project on one machine before starting on another? Thanks for the reply :) Yep, I'm good at this, mostly because I only write on one machine unless it's on fire (which hasn't happened in a year or two :D ). This is sync problems on the same piece of hardware....

Dropbox Sync Issues

Hey all. Been getting the odd Dropbox sync issue of late. Dropbox isn't still syncing, and seems happy enough, but I've had Scrivener crunk up on launch a few times. Latest one was a worrying launch error like this: argh.png I'm leery of pointing the finger at Scriv, as there are at least two pieces...

Re: Export to Word fails on italics (bug or user error: you decide!)

Are these lines by any chance styled? Normally a style would pass-through the formatting, but not if you specifically tell it to do otherwise in the compile Format. A quick and easy test of that theory would be to select the “Default” format and leave everything unassigned to print “as-is”. If that...

Re: Export to Word fails on italics (bug or user error: you decide!)

Hey friends. This one's starting to kill me; got an 85,000-word document to compile, and going through that by hand will be brutal. Anyone got any advice?

Screen Shot 2018-03-04 at 10.24.09 AM.png I'm not sure why it's doing this. It doesn't appear to be related to single words vs. whole sentences. It doesn't appear to be related to punctuation at the end. It doesn't appear to be related to carriage returns Not sure what is causing this. Manually edi...

Export to Word fails on italics (bug or user error: you decide!)

Hey friends. Wrestling with a weird thing (3.0.1 (996) for OS X). When I export a project to Word format (docx), Scrivener selectively ignores italics. Let me show the master vs. the output. Here is output where it works: Screen Shot 2018-03-04 at 10.21.04 AM.png Here is the source of that segment: ...

Suggestions on Gamification?

Hey friends. I like setting goals for daily writing. I usually hit 5k+ words per day, and like to get that recorded somewhere. Two reasons: 1) because I like seeing the numbers go up and giving myself a high-five, and 2) because I like to track which days I perform better on as it helps me tune my p...

"Check Spelling While Typing" as default?

Hey friends. This setting here in Scriv 3: Screen Shot 2017-12-04 at 3.27.46 PM.png I would like this on by default, but each new Scriv project seems to have it disabled. Is there a setting to have this on by default? If it's supposed to be on by default, how would I give it a kick into remembering ...

TYVM for this. It's working right. I had to jiggle some of the separator settings to make it work, but I've got it sorted now. Thanks again, lifesaver :)

Re: Help with new compile formats

Have you tried (in Section) unticking the Use Default Separators option, then add the custom bullet to Separator before Sections? (ie as well has having it in the Section - Section separator.) Yep, I've tried this. The problem then becomes each Section having the custom separator, even after e.g. a...
