password protection

Hello Keith,

Just two suggestions:

Password protection for would be great.
A fullscreen option for the wonderful corkboard would also be nice.

Well, thanks again for your great app,


Hi rochefore,

Someone else once asked for password protection back in the Scrivener Gold days. To be honest, password protection would be pointless because of the way the Scrivener file is stored. Even if you were asked to enter a password when the project was opened, somebody could just go to the .scriv file in Finder, ctrl-click and select “Show Package Contents” and access all of your writing as RTFD files.

AmberV posted a solution to password protection on the old forum here, though: … 828&page=1

As for a full screen corkboard - that would be a lot of work, so I’m not sure about that one.

All the best,
