Refinements and Changes

Installation and Registration
Users are now warned before downloading an automatic update if the update cannot be installed from the current Windows user account.
The update installer now creates its backup files in the user temp directory (and removes them on successful installation).
Registration and activation functionality has been updated.
UI
Updated the Catalan, Chinese (Traditional), French, German, Italian, Spanish (Latin America), Spanish (Spain), and Slovenian translations.
Tweaked colour chips and text alignment in the Label and Status menus and made the “No Status” and “No Label” displays consistent in the outliner.
Removed the confusing “cannot create backup” message that appeared when users chose to abort an automatic backup.
Enlarged the arrow button for the outliner options.
Added a “minimize” button to the New Project window.
Other
Pressing Enter on a container in the Documents > Move To menu now selects it as the destination rather than opening the submenu (which can be opened via the RightArrow key).
The dialog warning that a project may already be open now offers the option to make a copy of the project.
Toggling character formatting (bold, italic, underline, highlight, etc.) on a selection including formatted and unformatted text now follows consistent behaviour of always first applying the formatting.

Work in Progress

I'm very excited to announce that we currently have volunteers translating Scrivener into: German, Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Turkish, and Chinese. We are about to dive into another major development phase for Scrivener - all very exciting with lots of good things coming.

Backup

Every time Scrivener uses the Back Up function (whether automatic or Back Up To), an entire copy of the project is created in the user’s Temp folder and is not cleaned up from there even when Windows is restarted.

Fonts

We have added an experimental setting in Options->Editor Settings, for turning on/off font hinting. Qt, the framework Scrivener is built upon, definitely has issues here and this is a partial improvement - although it’s not a complete fix and something that we may not be able to implement properly until Qt 5 is released later this year. Thank you Clive for raising this again. If you’d like to read more about this, I suggest the following links:

Search

Project Search always uses “Excluded” - Without typing in the search bar, set the search options to “Search Draft Only” and “Search Included” Type a word in the search field View the search options: “Included” has been deselected and “Excluded” is now selected While viewing search results, it is also impossible to deselected the “Excluded” option–doing so applies a change to the “Included” option above it but never alters the “Excluded” state. Once back in the standard binder it is possible to de-select “Excluded”, but the option is automatically reset as soon as a word is typed in the search field.
