Re: [Solved] Scrivener seems to have a massive memory leak or other serious issue on Windows 10.

Thanks for this post! I'm having a similar issue and have a similarly "overkill" computer for word processing: i7-4790K 4GHz quad-core, 32GB of RAM, 4GB Ti1050 GPU, NVMe SSD boot drive. I also notice that the program seems to run better in full screen. This is problematic because my secon...

Re: [Solved] Page down goes too far in editor.

Figured this out. I need to disable typewriter mode when reading through an edit, but couldn't figure out how as fullscreen is separate from the standard editor, so disabling it in one does not disable it in the other. Thus I couldn't use the context menus in the task bar to do it. It's great for wr...

How do I keep character sheets from stacking using the template?

Sometimes I can add a new one and it creates a new card with the others. A lot of the time though, it will stack on top of another one. I can't consistently stop it from doing this. I left click on the empty part of the board a few times to make sure a card isn't highlighted, and sometimes that work...

Re: [Solved] Scrivener seems to have a massive memory leak or other serious issue on Windows 10.

Another update. Back to Windows 7 compatibility mode for me. Scrivener still screws up my right click. It doesn't lag or hang up anymore, but using the full screen editor makes my mouse's right click completely stop working. I have to restart my PC for it to function again. Just shutting down Scrive...

Re: [Solved] Scrivener seems to have a massive memory leak or other serious issue on Windows 10.

I'm using windows 10 - no Fall Creator's Update yet. I run both Scrivener versions 1.9.7 and the new beta. I don't use any of the compatibility modes. Yet, I've never encountered any of the problems you mention. It can be really helpful if you specify the version of Scrivener you are using. P.S. Do...

[Solved] Page down goes too far in editor.

I'm using the latest Windows version. Not the beta. When using page down to scroll down through a project in the editor, the cursor ends up towards the center of the page. That's fine as I'd have to adjust the cursor to make edits anyway. However, using page down to jump to the next page with the cu...

Re: Scrivener seems to have a massive memory leak or other serious issue on Windows 10.

Back again for a further update. I got the Fall Creator's Update for Windows 10 last night. That helped even more and everything seems to be working fine now, even Fullscreen. I've been working for a few hours today and have encountered no lag or hangups. Not sure what the initial problem was, but i...

Re: Scrivener seems to have a massive memory leak or other serious issue on Windows 10.

All right, things have improved after mucking around for a bit. Huzzah for troubleshooting! Windows 7 compatibility mode has stabilized things quite a bit. I wanted to narrow the editor window, so I created a window to the side using the inspector and widened it and the binder to squeeze the editor ...

[Solved] Scrivener seems to have a massive memory leak or other serious issue on Windows 10.

EDIT: Basically this was solved by running the Scrivener in Windows 7 compatibility mode, and getting the Windows Fall Creator's Update seems to have cleared up the remaining issues that compatibility mode didn't quite fix. /Edit The tutorial worked fine, after that, not so much. It is a new downloa...
