Re: Scrivener & Mendeley

Since Elsevier bought Mendeley, I don't think one can expect them to integrate with anything beyond Word, unfortunately. The big journal publishers have little incentive to innovate. I think the best option is for Scrivener to integrate citeproc as described in this thread: https://www.literatureand...

Re: Changing color of all annotations in an existing project?

Is it still the case that there is no way to change the colour of all inline annotations in a project at once?

Re: I Just Had a Stroke of Genius

I'm not sure about Scrivener for Windows but you can already set a background image in Scrivener for Mac Composition Mode, under Project > Project Settings > Background Images . You can't adjust transparency as far as I can tell.

Re: bewildered with choices

A mess? That's a bit out of order. Tonnes of work went into organising them for Scrivener 3 Yes, I'll concede that was a bit flip. The situation is much improved from v 2, and the elegance of Scrivener for iOS is even better. Still there are aspects of the preferences which seem quite arbitrary. e....

Styles don’t appear in compiled RTF or DOCX

If I compile in Scrivener for Mac to DOCX, I can open the resulting file in Word or Pages and all of my styled headings, block quotes etc. will appear as styled text. If I compile in Scrivener for IOS to DOCX, when I open the resulting file in Word or Pages, all of my styled headings, block quotes e...

Re: Paperpile integration

I think the best of the many many suggestions flying around for bibliography integration is this one: viewtopic.php?t=51779 - please add comments if you agree or suggestions for refinement.

Do other Windows apps catch these? What about wouldn;t ? Could it be that it thinks (rightly ) that can won and don are words?

Re: Academic Bibliographies: support citeproc as an option during compile

This is a great proposal imho. It’s a platform-agnostic solution & there are so many CSL styles available. And it fits the Scrivener write -> compile workflow.

Re: Styles do not apply

I understand perfectly well how compiling works. However, I’m pulling in material from dozens of different sources and a, just looking for a simple way to give it all the same appearance while I work with it.

Re: Styles do not apply

"No Style" has got to be one of the most confusing developments in Scrivener 3. Every other word processor I've ever used with any kind of styling has a base "Normal" or "Body" style as a default. I appreciate the effort to be innovative but it seems it's just befuddlin...

Re: Using the trial: the only reason I won't purchase...

Well this must be the Page View error described above, or something else equally arcane. After using Scrivener for about 6 hours in the last two days with no issues, suddenly spelling and smart quotes stopped working. Restarting Scrivener fixed it. But surely there is some way this can be fixed to p...
