Re: BUG: text looks different but readout telling me it's the same

hey amberv, yeah give it a try. if you used this before, i'm sure you'll fall right back into it. and yeah, having a large, finger usable keyboard will probably feel very luxurious compared to the palm. it's really configurable too so you can change the size of the keypad, can even change the font o...

Re: BUG: text looks different but readout telling me it's the same

oh and silverdragon,

if you're interested and want to give it a go, i can post some photos of handwritten notes that i made about the design philosophy of the keyboard. kinda helped me get my head around it.

Re: BUG: text looks different but readout telling me it's the same

hey silverdragon, amberv's right. it's exactly the same keyboard that was out for palm pilots... but back in the day, you had to peel off a plastic sticker showing that new keyboard arrangement and paste it onto the area of the palm pilot reserved for graffiti. it's called MESSAGEASE and it's totall...

editor zoom doesn't work on home computer, works on work computer

howdy, so i'm running win 10 on both and they're both the same version of scrivener (latest) but on the home computer, for some reason, the percentage zoom in on text (using the dropdown menu, the mouse wheel or ctrl -, ctrl + keys) doesn't work at all. but on the work computer, it works flawlessly....

BUG: text looks different but readout telling me it's the same

so i'm running into this issue where the text on-screen looks different - it's a little bit thinner than the rest of the text but when i look at the font and size settings, they read as exactly the same. there is a distinction to be made but there's no way for me to find out what that distinction is...

sync external folder errors out with .md files

was playing around with the .md files that i do have and was bringing them into scrivener with the sync to external folder function but there's a tiny hiccup. so in the sync dialog, i can tell scrivener to save as plain text files and even to save using the .md extension which is awesome for going b...

ah. gotcha. i agree.

but yeah, i am specifically thinking about dropbox folders since that would make the most sense in interoperability between platforms.

Re: rich text driven "code hiliting" for markdown in editor?

There is no parallel to this on iOS, because there is no such thing as an external folder on iOS! (There is no open file system, so there is no universal location for files/folders to live.) to say there is no **open** file system is different from saying that there is **no** file system. there are...

Re: rich text driven "code hiliting" for markdown in editor?

thank you much keith for taking the time to issue such a detailed answer. i can understand your position completely and it definitely DOES sound like a LOT of work. i didn't expect the idea to be trivial to implement but i definitely didn't see just how many things rich text touched in scrivener. ok...

Re: rich text driven "code hiliting" for markdown in editor?

no problem, i don't mind trying to explain myself and i'm not taking it as criticism... :) it's primarily a matter of workflow... as you note and as i'm guessing, the left hand panel in my example image may be using rich text TO RENDER the editor area and the text. i don't know for a fact... it may ...
