Re: Whoa! Hold it!

I hate to say it, but the problem is back again with Beta 035. Now, Shift-Del will trash the file I'm working on. I understand that shift-del should trash a file selected in the binder, but it should not do so while I'm working in the editor. Why? Because I use shift-del to cut and paste a word/phra...

compile print page number question

I did a partial compile of my_wondermus_story#2, only a single scene that was supposed to be 6 pages in length. When I printed out the last two pages, Scrivener printed pages 3-5 instead of pages 4-6. To print page #6, I had to request page #7. 'Print all' works fine, but 'print #' executes one page...

Re: Whoa! Hold it!

Thanks. The reason I panicked when I first saw it is that it is one of those 'automatic' key-strokes for me--I use it quite often without thinking, and it is only a quirk that let me catch it before I emptied the trash. I can live with it, but I'll have to be extra alert. As to why it happens to me ...

Re: Whoa! Hold it!

Well, it happens with both the XP and the W7 laptop. The control key and the delete key are stand-alone, with no remapping. The ctrl-backspace key works as advertised. The XP is stock Dell 4550 with the standard keyboard, while the Toshiba laptop keyboard appears to be standard. I'm trying to figure...

Re: Whoa! Hold it!

Yes, I did, indeed, select the text editor when it happened. (Specifically, I typed in a word, moved the cursor to the start of the word and then hit ctrl-delete, which resulted in the movement of the text file to the bottom of the trash bin.) XXXXXHowever, not only was the text file moved to the tr...

Whoa! Hold it!

Forgive me for dashing this off without finding if it has already been reported before, but I have found a definite problem with the new 025 install. Control-Delete will deposit whatever text file I'm working on in the Trash. Using ctrl-delete on a word will sometimes trash the entire file instead o...

There is no escape...

Pardon me if I'm stepping on someone's previously written comment, but there is this very minor nit-pick.... I've found no keyboard escape from the 'Project Targets' pop-up window. I could use <alt/f4>, but that strikes me as an un-elegant means of exiting. I like to pound away in text while in hype...

Re: autosave doesn't work with full-screen typewriter scrolling

Are you sure you are working in full screen mode as in my version the menu bar with the file name and asterisk disappears as it should do. I think my work is saving as I can hear Scriv saving to my exernal HD. Would it be possible for you to provide a screenshot of what you see on screen? Yes. I am...

autosave doesn't work with full-screen typewriter scrolling

I don't think this is related to the 'data not being saved' problem others are having, but it makes me wonder if this is a known bug being worked or some local idiosyncrasy in my own setup. It seems that while I’m working in full-screen with typewriter scrolling, my changes are not being saved. I’m ...

Download dictionary crashes Scrivener

Running Windows 7/Home on laptop: Scrivener 2.3 Select Edit/Options/Auto-Correction/Dictionary -- choose 'download' to select foreign language dictionary (even if you don't pick one) and presentation goes milky-white and freezes. Try to close the pop-up window and the message informs me that Scriven...

Re: Don't know if this is normal or not, but...

Yep, that's the problem.

I didn't run into it until the 1.9 beta, although I could have missed it in one of the flurry of beta progression changes over February.
Thanks for setting me straight on this.

Don't know if this is normal or not, but...

Here's where I show my ignorance. I just realized this and I wonder if it's something that Scrivener editor always did and I just didn't see it in early betas, or if my machine is acting funky or something. When I want to edit a sentence in the center of a paragraph, I must place the cursor at the b...

Re: USER POLL-WHICH 3 FEATURES DO YOU WANT SECOND AFTER RELEASE?

Being as it is that I am always asking for a second helping at the dinner table, I would like to add a word of praise for all the hard work that has gone into this project and ask for: I love the Name Generator. I only wish it had two more features: a way to enter my own new names, and a way to get ...

Export entire project problem

W7 on Toshiba laptop, Scrivener 1.8 Just upgraded to Scrivener 1.8 and thoroughly enjoy the updates. I like the software and look forward to purchasing it and using it when it debuts. I have a trial version of Microsoft Word which I have not activated, preferring to use OpenOffice instead. I haven't...
