Re: [RC12] Images missing after quit and restart

FYI, the thread that you link to still doesn't have an LH number in the thread title, which means that that L&L hasn't officially entered it as a bug into their internal system yet -- probably because they don't have a solid set of reproduction steps for the devs to investigate. If you have a mi...

This is a good overview of the pros and cons of dark mode vs. traditional light mode:

Re: Removing inline annotations? Also, color question

Once text has been converted to an inline annotation, is there a way to unconvert it — return it to what it was, ordinary text? From section 18.2 of the manual (available from within Scrivener by hitting F1, will open the PDF in your default PDF handler): As with other formatting tools, this works ...

Re: Text wraps around images

The features I'm asking for, highlighting clipped web pages and text wrapping around images and text boxes, are not extravagant, yet I can't seem to find one program that does everything I need. It's surprising, actually. If this is not an uncommon request, obviously they are telling their customer...

Re: Does the "Hero's Journey" Writing Approach Apply to Military Techno-Thriller / Historical Novels?

And of course the structure that is (or isn't) visible in the end result doesn't necessarily say anything about the planning tools used by the author. Absolutely. Ask any three general contractors what their preferred tools are for framing a house (or any other sort of construction task) and you're...

Re: Does the "Hero's Journey" Writing Approach Apply to Military Techno-Thriller / Historical Novels?

I think the thing that some of us miss, notwithstanding the constant references to Blake Snyder's scriptwriting failures in an effort to discredit him, is that structure is a road map. Haul out the map. Plot a course from A to B. Yawn. Boring road trip. Sally forth. I think this right here is one o...

Re: Issue with permissions and saving with v12

After restarting and trying again, this time I also got a message from my Avast virus protection, saying it had blocked access from Scrivener to a protected Dropbox file. It gave me the option of allowing access, and it seemed to work fine after that. Avast and other third-party anti-virus scanners...

Re: Text wraps around images

Pretty self explanatory. Just so you're aware, this is not an uncommon request, and the developer has in the past explained that it's not likely he will include this kind of capability since it veers into full-on page layout software. The vision for Scrivener is that it is *not* layout software -- ...

Re: Time to give us an update for Scrivener 3 launch window ?

Has Google required anyone to uninstall / reinstall their betas every 3-5 weeks? No, Google goes and updates your version for you and gives you little if any control over it.
