Re: Styles: how they will be?

I am one of those users that seldom use styles in Scrivener (as opposed to in Word) and highlighting all that instead of the few styled pieces seems illogical. That is why the thought was that it would be a non-default temporary view overlay, so most users would never see it. But if it could be tog...

Re: Styles: how they will be?

I, for instance, apply a style to everything, which allows narration to have first-line indents and dialogue to have all lines indented. I also sometimes forget to apply a style during revision, and part of the reason is that text with no style can look identical to text with a style attached to it...

What happens when you remove the list formatting and then re-apply?

Re: unable to verify your activation for more then two months

LL needs to avoid this scenario by getting their act in gear and stop worrying about "illegal" usage. Have you successfully run a global software business based around two apps for 10+ years? If not, your advice on how to run such a company is perhaps not as valuable as you might think. U...

Re: I cannot import any web pages

Microsoft's Chromium-based Edge browser has MHTML as an option under Save As. Just to clarify, do you mean Edge as generally available in all Windows 10 builds, or the specific new Edge-built-on-Chromium which is in open beta but has not yet been generally released, and is not yet slated to replace...

Re: unable to verify your activation for more then two months

I understand your frustration, however there is one specific part I would like to address: An issue like this that also threatens the risk of people losing their work You can rest easy on this one. Scrivener reverting to trial mode will not cause any work to be lost. In fact, the Scrivener project f...

Re: Output to ePub

I'm a little confused -- I thought mobi was the Kindle format, not ePub. As far as I know, when you output to mobi, Scrivener produces an ePub file and then runs it through KindleGen (if you have it on your machine). So wouldn't that depend on what version of KindleGen you're using to enable those f...

Re: Options can only be accessed from main window

Yes, I meant that window. I disagree, though: it's not so convenient having to open a project only to setup options. It's okay that I have in any case to open projects and work on them, but almost every other software allows users to configure it before starting their work. Not that I'm complaining...

Re: Options can only be accessed from main window

... almost every other software allows users to configure it before starting their work... That's absolutely not true. 99.9% of the Windows software requires you to open the software if you want to access its options. Which is different than having to open the software *and a project*, which is wha...

Basically, what Katherine said. It's not designed as a backup, and it only works *sorta* like a backup under very specific conditions.

Probably the project picker window you get when you don't have an open project.

To the OP, this is why I always keep an up-to-date Tutorial project around. One, it's a handy reference, and two, it gives me a ready-made project to open should I need to.

Re: Exit Composition Mode after switching between laptop and desktop

FYI, this should be in the Beta Testing (Windows) forum, where all bugs in the beta are discussed. I believe there are already several threads about this very bug there.
