Re: How do I put the author's name in the header in an anthology by multiple authors?

Thanks for the workaround! Correct, it's not exactly what I had in mind, but it may work. I'll have to clear it with the authors. One option is to have the title of the anthology on the left and the story:author on the right. Anyway, this gives me another option to work with. Thanks! No problem — i...

Re: Full Screen

It's one of those things where developers have to jump one way or the other and you can see reasons for doing either. So I was trying to point out that it's probably that, rather than a bug, that's all.

Re: Full Screen Mode with Typewriter Scrolling and Inline Annotations

No problem -- glad it helped!

It's one of the clever additions in V3.

In V2 you were either in writing mode (typewriter scrolling on) or editing mode (scrolling off). This setting allows you to combine the two while retaining the old behaviour if you want to.

Re: Full Screen Mode with Typewriter Scrolling and Inline Annotations

There's a setting; Preferences > Editing > Options > Typewriter scrolling always jumps to scroll line.

Try turning that on and see if the behaviour changes (it does for me...).

Re: Full Screen

Isn't that expected behaviour? Escape is used in Binder to rename items, so you (well, I...) wouldn't want it to work differently just because you're in Full Screen mode. Safari works the same way -- if you cmd-o to open a page when you're in full screen mode, escape closes the dialogue box, it does...

Re: How do I put the author's name in the header in an anthology by multiple authors?

OK, this is a bit fiddly, and it doesn't quite address the full problem (author on left, name on right), but at least it gets the changing name and author into the heading. There may be knock on effects which I haven't thought of (eg. how it would affect a ToC) so it may not fit your needs — and of ...

Re: Italics/emphasis character style persistence

The basic idea is that styles should be in addition to the default formatting you set up as default. Everything unstyled (ie in 'No Style') is passed through to the compiler transparently: everything styled is seen as an explicit design choice which you want to keep (or which you want to do somethin...

Re: Modify Uppercase Opening Words Feature

Sorry, Chuck, no I don't know what could be wrong -- it could be something quite simple (as in you're not choosing quite the right section layout perhaps) or some complex interaction. Clearly there's some difference somewhere, but what it is, I don't know without seeing the project itself. (And I'm ...

Re: Current line highlighting?

Pavel (and any others who are finding this a difficult issue), There is a way to get what appears to be a borderless highlight line in both editor and composition mode, but it needs a bit of fiddling. The basic process is simple but there's a fair bit of trial and error involved to get the right col...

Re: Modify Uppercase Opening Words Feature

Yes of course: TEST.scriv 2.zip Bear in mind, it's stripped down to its bare bones, so of course it doesn't include any other enhancements you may have made (ie changes to styles, CSS, etc) or set the page numbers properly etc. All it does is show you a basic format to have: a) An introduction with ...

Re: Manuscript for submission - template

It doesn't because you haven't selected the relevant section type to amend. TBH, the problem is that you're now in the advanced section of compile, where there is a huge amount of flexibility available, but which does require a basic understanding of how the building blocks of compile are supposed t...
