Re: Zoom pull down menu displays incorrect shortcut keys

This isn't actually a bug - you can't type "<" or ">" without holding down Shift. (Also, the way the keyboard shortcuts are displayed in menus is actually dealt with in Apple's code, in fact.)

All the best,

Re: Image Scaling in Editor and Compile Incorrect after "Replace Media File…"

Hmm, I'm not actually sure what can be done about this, to be honest, because the editor has no idea about changes to binder images. Either I need to remove the "Replace Media File" feature to avoid this sort of issue, or users will have to be careful to use unscaled images for this...

Re: Audio file interface in new Scrivener (3.0.1)

It won't be changing back. Scrivener 2 used the ancient QuickTime frameworks, which provided the playback bar and which are long since deprecated by Apple. You can compress the editor just as much in Scrivener 3 as you could in Scrivener 2, though. The controls are a little larger - as is standard i...

Re: Editor window can't restore to previous position once the binder was turned off

One thing to note is that if the window takes up the full width of the screen (give or take a pixel or two), then it will switch to using the old behaviour anyway, since in that case it assumes you want to keep things fitted to the width fo the screen. So in your video, if the right edge of the wind...

Re: Need simpler way to create and move footnotes

Moving footnotes is as simple as drag and drop - just drag the footnote from the Inspector and drop it on the new word you want it attached to. Or select the text you want it attached to and drop it onto it.

All the best,
Keith

Re: How to zoom to fit screen?

Preferences > Appearance > Main Editor - turn off fixed width. The new defaults in Scrivener 3 use a fixed width because a fixed with with not too many characters across is generally much better for reading work back, and allows words to be fixed in place more. You can turn off the preference you re...

Re: How to compile to rtf with headers

One thing to note is that when you export from Scrivener in RTF format, you should open the RTF file in Word or Nisus Writer to see the headers - if you open the RTF file in TextEdit, you will not see the headers or footers because TextEdit, like Pages, doesn't support them (TextEdit opens RTF files...

Re: BLOCK, Paragraph and Character Styles

<div> blocks can also be applied to Section Layouts using the Compile settings even without using MMD - you just need to assign a CSS class name to the Section Layout in the Compile format. This does mean having your <div> block in its own document in the binder, of course. All the best, Keith

Re: Love Scrivener but worried about Data Loss

Scrivener is built to minimise the possibility of data loss as much as possible. As has been mentioned by others, a .scriv project file is really just a folder that contains lots of other files. Each section of your document is saved as an RTF file inside the .scriv package. When you load a project,...

Re: Project Settings/Section Types disappeared again

Thanks for the info. Okay, I think I might be part way there, but not entirely, based on the clue of having other projects open. Different classes in Scrivener set themselves up as observers of different events, and the Section Types controller object listens for the associated project closing, at w...

Re: Tool tips disappear after clicking Dock or Corkboard view click in Scrivener 3

I can't reproduce this, I'm afraid, and even if I could, it is almost certainly a macOS bug. I have no control over the appearance of tooltips. All I an do is set a tooltip for a particular control. So, my code just says, "This button has this tooltip," and this is done when the control is...

Re: Project Settings/Section Types disappeared again

This is so strange. Some questions: 1. Had you edited an project settings and hit "OK" at some point before the types disappeared? (The only time they are ever saved is when you hit OK in the Project Settings.) 2. Once you saw they were missing, did you hit "OK" or "Cancel&q...

Re: How to maintain font color in section title?

This bug was introduced by another fix I made in 3.0.1 and has been fixed for 3.0.2. In general, though, I recommend using ePub 3 format in Scrivener 3 - ePub 2 is mainly there for use with legacy projects and will one day be phased out.

All the best,

Re: Page number footer too low.

I'm not sure what you mean about Scrivener 2's settings being more friendly - nothing in the settings affects this, and I worked very hard to ensure that Scrivener 3's Compile settings were simpler, more user-friendly and more powerful. I have updated the algorithm used to place page numbers, though...

Re: Different fonts for headers.

I'm afraid not. You can choose a single font for the header and a single font for the footer, but these go all the way throughout the book - you cannot choose a different font for headers on facing pages.
