Re: What happened with Screenshots?

There has never been a dedicated tool for making screenshots in Scrivener, at least not on the Mac. There would be no point in having such a thing, since the Mac already has excellent facilities for doing so (especially so, now with 10.14). Now the Windows Scratch Pad on the other hand did/does have...

Re: Customized Keyboard Shortcuts

That's too bad that it changes the whole layout as well. Well, a macro is certainly better than memorising the ASCII table and using the numkeys. :) I wonder if maybe using Scrivener's Substitutions feature, in the Corrections settings area, might help as well? You could put in an abbreviation like:...

Re: Problems with collections

There are two kinds of collections, those you manage yourself (which it sounds like you are accustomed to), and those that have their lists built automatically by a saved Project Search query. You can’t modify the latter, save for indirectly causing things to match the filter. There are a few visual...

Re: Customized Keyboard Shortcuts

If your keyboard doesn't have conventions for accented characters built into it, then you need to enable a so-called "International" keyboard that enables AltGr, or the Alt key to the right of the spacebar. Input is similarly intuitive as on the Mac, though the precise key layout is a bit ...

Re: Document has grabber hand instead of pointer, can't select

I am not seeing the same problem on 10.12, but maybe I'm not doing precisely the same thing. What I did was open Scapple, created two test notes in the starter board, then launched Safari. From our home page, I dragged the "Launching chapter 3" graphic with paper airplanes into the Scapple...

Re: Search custom metadata

Holding down the Option key when clicking on a search area, in that magnifying glass menu, will add that field to the current search. So in this way you could select three different custom metadata fields and search them all collectively.

Re: Adding Options to "Right Click" Inside Scrivener

I’d say the easiest way is through its shortcut, ⇧⌘- (hyphen), which is easy to remember because it is like typing a bunch of hyphens over the text, like one would on a typewriter. You can customise the shortcut if it doesn’t work for you.

Re: Formatting synopsis

So something I do when encountering a repeated type of formatting that I want in a number of places is to decide whether or not it is important to express as a type of thing, of itself, or whether it is okay to combine several different semantic types together. If this is an epigraph for instance, t...

Re: Suggestion: Open text via corkboard cards in the Left or Right Editor

That option is referring to what happens when you double-click on the background , between any cards. That wouldn’t work very well for loading a selection of cards into the other editor. Meanwhile you only need one command for this, “Open in Other Editor”, and that has a convenient (customisable) sh...

Re: Why do bulleted lists text in my manuscript compile to epub with a different font family and font size?

By the way, I veiwed the epub in Sigil and Calibre and the font size for the lists were smaller. Also, when I compile to Word docx, I don’t have this issue. I wouldn’t spend too much time trying to figure it out from that angle. There are almost no areas of commonality there. This must be something...

Re: Add website to research in iOS

There is an “Import” icon right in the middle of the footer bar for the binder, between "Compile" and "Add Folder". From there you can insert stuff from a few different places, including the World Wide Web.

Re: Text is centred even when flush left

I split your post to a new thread because you were responding to an issue about keyboard shortcuts not working. You might be more familiar with this look, if we add a bunch of visual paraphenalia to it, using the View ▸ Text Editing ▸ Show Page View menu toggle. It’s the same idea, only instead of d...

Re: Linguistic Focus glitch

Like I say, the only thing we ourselves can improve is the direct-speech detection (and we have, we added em-dash style dialogue detection a while back). Everything else is as difficult/impossible to change as... well like spell check itself. It's something the Mac is doing at our behest, like print...

Re: Linguistic Focus glitch

With the exception of the direct-speech option, these tools are all provided by the Mac, as part of the text editor. My guess is that they had a system for this already built for the grammar checker, and figured it would nice and easy to make it available to other developers like us. Whatever the ca...

Re: Name Generator like Windows please

Custom lists are easy to make, but you would do so in a text file (or spreadsheet), and then import that file. Instructions are provided in §20.3.1, Managing Your Own Name Lists.
