Text Substitutions Not Always Working

This could be related to my Mac ignorance ...

I set up a text substitution via the system preferences so that "gg" would expand to my MC's name, Garrett.

It doesn't work every time, as seen here:

Yes, I love that feature of the Mac. I expected this to be in the options somewhere, or I might have looked there.

Thanks. I wouldn't have found that myself.

Display Number of Subdocuments in Binder?

On the Windows version, I could display the number of subdocuments in the binder. Is that possible on the Mac? Searched the manual and this forum without success.

Thanks.

Re: Closer Spacing on Corkboard Please

One problem is that the popup dialog lets you set the aspect ratio, but if the user has images up, it's ignored. Screen Shot 2018-09-15 at 8.38.40 AM.jpg That's one of those things that causes hair pulling ("Aargh! I set the ratio to 5 x 2, why isn't it WORKING?"). It also results in tech ...

Re: Closer Spacing on Corkboard Please

I understand your points, but would still like to have the choice. Also, won't people be frustrated when they try to change the aspect ratio and it doesn't work (when displaying image cards). As it stands I'll have to adjust the ratio whenever I look at text vs. image cards (unless I want to waste a...

Re: Closer Spacing on Corkboard Please

I see. The [Aspect] Ratio of the cards is ignored for cards that do have images. For example, I had selected 5 x 2, but the cards with images are shown at 5 x 5. Screen Shot 2018-09-07 at 4.21.29 PM.jpg If I set the aspect ratio to 5 x 5, I get what I want: Screen Shot 2018-09-07 at 4.22.52 PM.jpg S...

Re: Says "No Surnames Selected"

More info on this. Today I didn't check any of the name lists, and it was still able to generate names without error messages. I also discovered something that may cause confusion: Today I got a result like this: Screen Shot 2018-09-07 at 11.22.32 AM.jpg I finally figured out that the surname field ...

Closer Spacing on Corkboard Please

It would be great if the index cards could be spaced closer together. I've chosen the lowest spacing, but there is still a good bit of wasted space here: Screen Shot 2018-09-07 at 10.19.17 AM.jpg The freeform option lets me put them closer, but has other disadvantages (doesn't do well with window re...

So, is it a good idea to move to ePub 3 ASAP?

Interesting. I sure don't think I did anything outside of Scrivener, but who knows? I'll keep an eye on it.

ePub3 vs ePub2

Seeing that I can now choose to compile to ePub3 format, I chose that, expecting everything to be the same except that the output would use the new and improved (?) format. However, I found that formatting was changed (e.g. paras not indented, no space between paras,fonts different). If I just want ...

Duplicate Internal Identifiers?

I would like to know what this is referring to and what might have happened to cause it. Thanks.
