Heh, your G4 certainly isn't that old yet. :) It's just that there will be certain aspects that inevitably lag when you have a lot of text. During development, I put all of the focus into ensuring that typing would always be as fast as possible. So, in full screen with 40,000 words in an Edit Scrive...

Changing the width really relies on your computer speed. Absolutely nothing has changed in this beta in this regard - the full screen paper resizing is exactly the same as in other betas. It will be slower if you have lots of words in the text. This is exactly the same as if you have lots of words i...

Thank you very much for your positive feedback. :) Corkboard / Three by Five is one of the programs I looked at when implementing the corkboard in Scrivener. Whilst Scrivener's corkboard doesn't do everything Corkboard did (which was brilliant at representing hierarchical information), I did try to ...

If it is the generation of polaroid thumbnails that is causing you issues, turn it off via Preferences - this is exactly why it is a preference. Development has finished in this area, so this will not get any better pre-2.0. It will only be a big issue with slower computers, but like I say, that is ...

the notice board style of viewing the contents of a folder doesn't scroll well at all with a scroll wheel'd mouse, and not quite 100% with clicking and dragging the blue bar Probably not the first time you scroll down, but after that it should be fine. This should only be the case if you have the p...

As for selling the final version - I'm working the webpage right now. Then it's just the help file and anything that comes up in the meantime. As for building the stuff into "Print" - there's just no way. It would mean building a whole word processing engine from the ground up! Let's see w...

Ah, no, these things aren't built in - not for endnotes and footnotes. Footnotes and endnotes, like I say, are only really supported in the RTF export . The "Print" button in the Export Draft sheet can only do stuff that is built-in. Thus, footnotes are just plonked at the end of the whole...

I cannot recreate this. You _are_ exporting to RTF, I presume, and not RTFD or any other format? Everything works fine for me when I open it up in Word - I get footnotes at the bottom of each page if that is what I have selected. Oh, and please do answer whether that other post sorted out the proble...

Whenever I'm trying to export, I can't keep text centered (it is moved to the left of the page when it is exported). I take it you have "Use export formatting" checked in Text Options in the Export Draft sheet. If that is checked, the formatting you have defined in the Export Draft sheet ...

Actually, I suppose it is a bug. :) I changed the code that Scrivener uses to open new projects so that it opens all the projects you last had opened during the last session rather than just the last one opened. I based this code on Mori's code for doing this, and in doing so I moved this code to th...

Cmd-W closes the active window or panel. This may be the keywords HUD, snapshots panel, or any other active window that has a "close" button (which therefore excludes only the full screen window). If the main project window is active, then Cmd-W closes the project. Shift-Cmd-W, on the othe...

Yes - unfortunately there's not much I can do about that. The conversion is strictly one way (you will see that exactly the same happens in Montage, which is a dedicated program). The trouble is that there is no way of guessing which letters you want in caps in things like general text and scene act...

Yes - I only removed the paperpack pages count from document statistics. It has more meaning for the draft, although it is only a very rough estimate, based on the idea that the paperback page count will be roughly the character count divided by 6 (a publisher's "word" being six characters...

Do you mean for users to define their own formats? Don't even go there. :) You don't know how complicated the code is that deals with screenplay/stageplay formatting. Honestly, it would not be trivial to do that. That would be the sort of thing I would consider for 2.0 in a year or two, not before...
