For the past several years, I have routinely compiled every time I close down Scrivener as an additional safety measure If I find too many typo errors -- such as a repeated word in the WORD docx, I do an import and split to get a clean document. I'm...

Re: Where does Scrivener store its User Dictionary?

Yes, this file is located in your AppData\Local\Scrivener\Scrivener folder: 'wordslists.ini'. That's where I'm finding the file, using 1.9.7. I needed to show hidden files to see it. Although, please note the file name is wordlists.ini. Wordlists.png I found it once I enabled " show hidden fil...

Re: Where does Scrivener store its User Dictionary?

Referring back to 2013, in this post , you did mention it is “wordlist.ini”, not “wordlists.ini”. But since you’ve gone right to the folder I’m guessing there is nothing like that there. Are you using the beta? I noticed in my quick test with it, there appears to be issues with learning words (issu...

Re: Where does Scrivener store its User Dictionary?

Yes, this file is located in your AppData\Local\Scrivener\Scrivener folder: 'wordslists.ini'. This is just a basic .ini file, so you can even keep it automatically synchronised between multiple machines if you use such software. I did I search of my entire C drive --nothing called "wordslists....

Re: font inexplicably changing-- a bug?

Yoohoo ANYONE HOME? I REALLY need help on this. Should I contact tech support? ANYONE? I've noticed that when I compile (which I do often as I'm nearing the end of my novel and paranoid to lose work) the INVISIBLES at the end of every paragraph change from my assigned font to COURIER NEW when I look...

Keystrokes for copy font/paste font

Hi
Are there keystrokes for COPY FONT and PASTE FONT?
Not regular copy paste-- I know those.
See attachment for clarification
I use a specific font as a 'separator and it is time consuming to scroll down al the fonts to select it.
Thanks

Re: Hallelujah! 1.9.70

Send us photos dancing, Marta! Enjoy! :wink: One bug (or maybe isn't a bug -- I may be in a different mode and need to get out of it) In the older Scrivener when I clicked on a folder with several files, it opened in the binder section so I could see the names of the files. Occasionally in 1.9.70, ...

Hallelujah! I'm dancing in the streets.
THANK YOU!

Re: Help! Downloaded update now Scrivener won't load

Scrivener needs a verbose, diagnostic load option. I'll bet there's no true coding bug, just a missing DLL or an out-of-date video driver that Scriv is tripping on for a few users. Or perhaps a stale Qt library is ahead on the user's path via some other application. It's not a lack of helpfulness o...
