Re: Weird ALT and CTRL key behavior

I've seen this before. To use the Alt-0151 you need to have NumLock on. With NumLock off Alt-0151 shows a 7 (Only in scrivener though not e.g. in MS Word) Using Alt-[Numeric Keypad] with NumLock off gives weird results E.g. Alt-4 hides the menu (i.e. treats it as Alt-Left Arrow) then shows a , (com...

Re: I can't make Compile to use A4

Version 026 and I still can't see how to do this? (Set Page size to A4 and custom margins) If I compile to MS Word then the output should be close to perfect as possible. I don't really want to then fiddle with Word settings like Page Size and margins - as I want to use Scrivener as my editor not Wo...

I can't make Compile to use A4 (as defined in Page Setup)

I live in the land of A4 paper size. If I compile to anything (pdf, doc, docx) it always comes out as paper size Letter I have A4 selected in Page Setup and it doesn't seem to use it. So how do I get Compile to use A4 (or anything else besides Letter)? If I choose Print Current Document then it does...

Re: How To Report an Issue relating to Performance

OK Here is my take. I think that there is a memory leak when selecting (clicking) the root folder and then clicking a sub-folder . If I do this - click the root / click the sub-folder / click the root / click the sub-folder then my memory usage goes up by about 160K every time. I did this 25 times a...

Re: Crashing on Show Text View

My crash happens in reverse. I opened an existing project and it was already in Corkboard View. I noticed the text was tiny. 1. I clicked on Show Text View. I thought I'd be able to select all the text at once and easily increase the size. Ok thanks to debraji I see now that I can make it one step ...

Crash Show Text View/Show Corkboard View[BUG LOGGED]

Yay - I can reproduce a crash! Excuse my excitement but I have spent over an hour trying to get to the point where I can reproduce a crash. Scrivener was crashing every 30 minutes and was driving me mad! So I tried to find out what I was doing. I can now make it happen and would be interested in kno...

Re: Problems with New Beta 1.7

Same with me - crashed twice in 15 minutes. But can't seem to replicate the crash. Went back in did what I was doing again and was fine.

So my caveat is - remember this is still a beta release!

I'm using windows XP
