Re: Using Scrivener on Surface Pro 3

Windows RT has not come on Surfaces since the Surface 2 (non Pro model). I own the Surface 3 (also non Pro model) and it originally shipped with Windows 8.1. The Surface 3 Pro originally came with the same, I believe and later production run Surface 3 (both types) Surface 4 Pro (there is no non Pro ...

Re: Changing paragraph spacing on the whole manuscript at once

Yeah, not removing bold or italic is a pain in the butt, Especially given that Scrivener applied the bolding in question all on its own, at odds to the default formatting that was in force during the creation of things. It really needs to override those things as well, though for the reasons it does...

How to apply a text style across an existing project?

I have an existing project. I know about setting my appearance in "appearance" and "editor" menus. What I don't get is A) why did all of this existing work imported from a DOCX come in as BOLD? B ) why does "convert formatting to default text style not set everything to the ...

Re: New Install Blues

Not really finding anything. Like I said, its a fresh install of Windows 7, so other than trying out LibreOffice (and hating it) the other day, there is actually less on the machine now than there ever has been, and certainly nothing new. Normally I'm stubborn enough to make this sort of thing work,...

Re: New Install Blues

Of course, now that I say that, the universe takes it as a challenge, and now Scrivener won't load again, though now, instead of not responding at an empty New Project box, its not responding with an entire empty Project screen. Anyone? Anyone? Something DEE OH OH application use. Voodoo Application...

Re: New Install Blues

okay then ... So I kept banging away on the problem and started working backward through recently installed applications and found that Scrivener seems to have been tussling with (and losing to) a very recent install of LibreOffice. Removing that allowed Scrivener to fire right up. Glad I got a solu...

New Install Blues

I made a fresh install of Windows 7 on a new SSD for my lappy, and now a fresh install of 1.8.6 won't start up. It brings up the usual starting window, but its just the chromed box, no content at all. It just sits there looking like its working at something, but if you interfere with it in any way i...

Re: 1.8.0.0 Released - 3rd December 2014

This release has been a bit of a disappointment for me, personally. I'm sure its been a ton of work, and its always good squashing bugs and improving stability and all that. However, there is no new functionality here, in addition to the fact that there is nothing listed in the change log that has e...

Re: Alternate scroll insertion point possible?

I don't think that setting does much to top and bottom in Scrivenings mode, either, though the mode does seem to have a bit more padding on its own. Its a bit better, and a sneaky workaround. Too bad it doesn't respond to the margin setting as you'd though, then that would be something. Thanks for g...

Re: Alternate scroll insertion point possible?

I already use the editor margin setting. It only effects the sides of the editor window, otherwise, I would already be cool here ;-p

Alternate scroll insertion point possible?

Standard mode inserts text right down against the bottom chrome of the screen. Typewriter scroll stick the insertion point right at the 50% point. My ideal point would actually be on the low side of somewhere between. Can't stand having my eyes glued to the very bottom of the screen, and like the cr...

Re: Feedback Wanted: How do you structure your Scriv projects?

Generally each project is multibook, or at the very least something that has multiple, publishable parts, so I have my draft folder divided into folders for each publishable bit (volume, short story, essay, blog post, whatever, though its generally a volume, one book in a series). Inside each of tho...

Re: Random thought: Scriv on Android using libwine?

Nook HD+ with BT keyboard and mouse and the Nook HDMI adapter works pretty nicely with things like JotterX, Google Docs and Simplenote (each presenting a different method of cloud storage for docs) while using the TV in the living room. Hell, it works just fine without the HDMI hook up and the big s...
