All my texts are now justified systematically at value 174 on the right of the ruler (little triangle pointing downward). No problem when printing. But for reading, I'm obliged to paste a new ruler state everywhere...
Am I alone?

've been exporting a .rtf from Final Draft. The template in FD was their standard "Screenplay.fdt" one and I've cross-referenced all their indents with the ones in Scrivener's Script Settings and created a new .xml and put it in the proper Scripts folder as advised. (I wanted to create a new Scrivener Script Setting because the standard one didn't match any of the templates included with Final Draft.)
On a similar note - it's useful to be able to export a .rtf draft from Scrivener and reimport it with all the elements in tact. This I have been able to do with perfect success, but it was after a fair bit of fiddling with export settings and indents etc. Is it possible a preset button or something could be built into the export dialogue? I think the export settings are a bit scary I'm afraid.

Are you sure this isn't just the result of Scrivener using a "Fixed Width" editor by default now?

- Added Bibliography/Citationsâ€¦ command to Text menu (shift-cmd-Y). If you set a Bibliography Manager via Typography Preferences, this command will just launch or bring to front the set manager (e.g. Bookends, EndNote or Sente). In the case of Bookends, this means that you can now just hit shift-cmd-Y whilst in Scrivener to bring Bookends to the front, then select a citation and hit cmd-Y to return to Scrivener with the citation pasted in. With EndNote or Sente, which cannot paste directly into Scrivener, you can hit shift-cmd-Y whilst in Scrivener to bring them to the front, then select a citation, hit cmd-C to copy it, then switch back to Scrivener and hit cmd-V to past the citation into Scrivener yourself. Hopefully this should just speed up the academic workflow a little.

I don't see that there is anything exclusive to Bookends in Scrivener's implementation. You can choose whatever citation manager you want and open it using the Bibliography/Citation Text menu item. Any you want. The only difference is that it is easier to use Bookends to paste directly into Scrivener. Is that Scrivener's fault? No it isn't. It is because the developer of Bookends is very responsive and helpful, and he got in touch with me. Sente and Bookends only support certain word processors, whereas Bookends can be associated with any.
Finally, whilst I agree that Typography was a strange place to put this, all of the other preferences panes are already choc-a-bloc - mainly because Scrivener allows a lot of customisation. So shoot me.

I have a block cursor set to 2 pixels, and am using ghost fading. Disabling insertion point blinking stops the flashing...

My main priority won't be adding new whizz-bang features but using it myself. So - please judge it as it is right now rather than for what you think it could become.

BHD wrote:I guess it might help to document how that interaction works when you get a chance? If a Bookend user pastes a citation into the document, is it essentially a live citation field/object (an important requirement to have good citation support)? Can other developers achieve the same kind of interaction? If yes, how?

Selecting some text and clicking the Copy Style icon on the toolbar and then selecting some other text with a different style and clicking Paste Style icon does nothing.
I think its the Paste Style icon that's not working right because using the keyboard shortcut for Paste Style changes the text.
