Re: [RC18 BUG?] Special Characters in Scratchpad Notes' Titles

As a British Boomer, I think I have the right to point out that # is not and never has been a "pound sign"! The "pound sign" is £ ! Indeed. And it’s not a hashtag, it’s a hash — hence the practice of using it to tag people or subjects becoming called hash tagging. It’s properly ...

Re: Cost of Windows 3 version

But it's probably not an answer that someone who paid money for the product years ago would be entirely satisfied with. I don't get why some people seem to find that so surprising. When one pays money for software, one is purchasing the software at its given state — there is no guarantee of future ...

Whatever your copy source is, then, is explicitly coloring the background white. Use Paste and Match Style to work around this whole issue.

Re: Page color changes on background

Just out of curiosity, what happens when you use Ctrl-Shift-V (Paste and Match Style) instead of normal Paste?

Re: Chapter Numbering Placeholder Confusion

Do you know where I can download the Scrivener 3 for Windows beta? I'm currently on 1.9.something - ah! 1.9.16.0, the stoneage version. Go to this thread to download the most current beta, which at the time of this writing is RC18: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=4...

Re: RC18-+: one more when you get to the installer --not a prime

This is a long-standing issue that many have already noted and will require L&L to do a rework of the installer routine they are using. There is a bug number for it, but my understanding is that this work is sufficiently involved that it will not be tackled until after 3.0 releases, at which poi...

On modern versions of MacOS and Office, this gap is far less noticeable now.

Re: [BUG] with double-click selection

Thanks, this is filed. Bump. Will this bug be fixed before release? Relax. They aren't going to tell us when the release is, so all you need to do is check the release notes for each new RC version and see if this bug [LH2923] is marked as fixed. If the release is 3.0 and this bug hasn't been repor...

Re: Version: 2.9.9.16 Beta (1183694) 64-bit - BUGS

Not holding grudges; but not entertaining 'tude. Engaging in a behavior that the founder has specifically asked us not to do, and then getting upset and defensive when you are called on it no matter how gently (or not), is your own form of 'tude. If you don't want it, don't give it. At any rate, en...

Re: Please, test “Check for Updates” in RC17

Under Wine in Cinnamon 19.03 32bit RC17 to 18 update worked beautifully until its final request to reboot. It didn't, but also didn't freeze. After manual reboot it's fine. Scrivener update shouldn't require a reboot. It doesn't on a full Windows system, unless you have multiple user accounts logge...

Re: Version: 2.9.9.16 Beta (1183694) 64-bit - FEATURE REQUEST

Secondly, if I read you correctly, there are no plans to ever make a Windows mobile version. I’m not even sure what that means these days, I was under the impression they gave up on having a mobile platform years ago Windows Mobile is dead. There is Windows on ARM that looks interesting for smaller...
