Re: Can we have "Check spelling as you type" Main Toolbar Action Button, please?

@ David Munch and @Lunk, the OP and the other posters seem to be Windows users, while you're both on Mac and giving them the Mac solution. I too am a Mac user, so I don't have an answer as to whether it is possible to create a shortcut for that particular menu item on Windows, as I don't think it's ...

Re: Scrivener unable to save my project

Okay, so how do I fix it? I'm sorry, I'm a Mac user, so don't know how you set permissions in Windows. I'm sure a Windows user will be along soon, or you could google resetting file permissions in Windows. Or you might try a search in this forum for other posts which raise similar problems. It's ju...

Re: Scrivener unable to save my project

That reads to me like the update has altered the file permissions on that file ro make it "Read only".

Re: Scapple is crashing since updating OS

If you really want to help L&L find out what's wrong, open Console and search for Scapple to see if there's a crash report and send it to them. If you can send them the file to examine, that will help too. The more information they have, the easier it is to find out what's causing the crash. :) ...

Re: Minimum RAM Requirements Scrivener 3

I ran Scrivener 3 for a short while on a late 2010 13” MacBook Air, with only 2 GB RAM, and a 1.8 GHz processor. It was fine until I upgraded to MacOS 10.13, at which point I noticed a slight performance drop. The way Scrivener operates, unless you open very large Scrivenings sessions, especially wi...

Re: Lost or Hidden Blue Folder

Have you, by any chance, accidentally moved it into "Trash"? Search will still find files and folders in the Trash, and they can me moved out again.

Just a thought.

Re: newest windows update doesn't work

Perhaps the important point from MM's instructions is: Hi all, We've put up a new version of 1.9.8 which should fix the slowdown and freezing that some people are experiencing. Please clear your browser cache (or use a second browser), then download the new installer. You can install this over your ...

Re: Help with Styles

With OCR'd text with two carriage returns between paragraphs, and CRs at the end of every line, I use S&R as follows: 1) Enter 'Space' CR in the search field, and just 'Space' in the replace field; 2) Replace All; All the newlines within paragraphs should have been replaced with just a space, bu...

Re: Any such thing as a "column break" in Scrivener?

rdale wrote:Okay, thanks. At least I can stop chasing my tail now.

I'll just insert a special character then, and in Nisus, search an replace column breaks, assuming I can do that.

I would think it must be possible to do that in NWP, and you could then macro-ize it and give the macro a shortcut …

Re: Cause of false chapter titles?

Have you checked the compile settings to see if you accidentally turned on the "Title" box for those two files?

Re: [BB] Bug - Spaces remain invisible

Oh! I don't have a Mac - obviously. I now switched to 800% - the screenshot above was 400%. With 800% I can indeed see something. Barely. This won't do. They need to be visible at 100%. Also, they better return to the center of the space and the line, as they are in 1.9.7, and not attached at the b...

Re: [BB] Bug - Spaces remain invisible

Actually, the spaces are showing—at least I can see them on my Mac Retina screen. For instance if you look between the “ and the W of 'Wieder' there is a tiny little dot low down near the “ but, like the arrow for the tab, it's in pale grey and much smaller than the font size. Where it follows a 't'...

Which version of Windows? Scrivener 1.9.7 or Scrivener 2.9.0.6 (the Beta of Scrivener 3!)?
