Timeline-like synchronization between binder portions

DISCLAIMER: I'm posting this suggestion so as to get it out of my system. I recognize that it is likely too costly, complicated, overkill, and outside of or at odds with Scrivener's direction. But I'll rest easier, having posted it. I hope it is intelligible. Beware, this way lies madness.... SUGGES...

Beta 14 - ? Binder selection affects top/left edit window regardless of which window is active?

UPDATED - The following was happening with a version of a project used by previous 2.9 betas. Turns out that it does not happen with the Scrivener interactive tutorial project or with a freshly converted version of the source 1.9.9.0 project. So would appear that this may have been an issue with a c...

Re: How to change single smart quotes into double smart quotes

As far as how to change them, see rdale's reply in the following thread http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=31900&p=200667&hilit=single+double+smart+quotes#p200667 His reply addresses going from double to single, but you'll get the idea. Just modify so that you a...

Re: Installing Full Version of Scrivener on a New Laptop

Until you get that info, you can just download and use the free full evaluation version. It is good for 30 days of use (doesn't have to be consecutive days) and uses/creates standard Scrivener projects.

Re: Exporting personal word list from Scrivener to Word

The specific file at that location is wordlists.ini It is a plain text file and can be viewed or edited with Notepad. For safety sake, only do so when Scrivener is not running. Better yet, be sure to make a safety copy of it. For additional discussion, do a search of these forums for "wordlists...

Re: Scrivener slow to open on Windows 10 with Windows Defender AV

I experimented a bit with Windows Defender settings and confirm that it (default settings) does result in some slowdown, perhaps doubling launch/load times. But those times are still in seconds and I wouldn't call them "terrible". Given that I only launch/load once or very few times per da...

Re: Reccuring CHKDSK error for scrivener.exe (help!)

Assuming the laptop is configured as it came from the factory (i.e. the C; drive is the one that originally came in the PC from HP), I would suggest you locate and use HP system diagnostics to give both the drive and the entire PC a thorough checkup. Such a systems diagnostics utility may already be...

Correct. With "Size to fit editor" unchecked, "Cards across" is overriden. Thanks.

Re: [BUG?/Incomplete?] Corkboard Options items not working

Apologies for my delay in responding. As memory serves (or doesn't), I don't believe any of them were working for me back then (2.9.0.2?). I could be wrong. In 2.9.0.3, all but Cards Across appear to be working for me. This holds true for both a project imported from 1.9 and a new project created in...

[NB|Suggestion] Inconsistent editor active window selection, re editing and binder navigation..

If have done a split and have two editor windows open and one or both of the windows is wider than the ruler, with light gray space to each side of the text area, clicking in the light gray space fails to set that window as the active window. One is forced to remember to click within the narrower te...
