Proj at Close Will No Longer Open

I am using Big sur and I updated to 3.2.1.

Today, I went to open my usual project and Scriv is just quitting on me. I can open other projects, but not that one. I have tried opening via my fic folder on my desktop, but nope Scriv has another conniption and refuses to play ball.

[Bug?] Highlight for Active Split Sceen Missing Post New Update

As it says above. Prior to the update, when I toggled to a split screen, whichever editor I was working in, the header was highlighted in blue. That is no longer happening. It keeps tripping me up, when I search for words, because it is not see easy to determine which editor is active after a few ba...

Re: Should I upgrade to Big Sur now, or wait?

I updated and wished I hadn't. I brainstrom with bullet lists and that function is no longer working for me. I like things the way I like them and this is driving me nuts.

Altering Text Size in Headers/Footers

I apologise if thiw has been mentioned elsewhere, but I could not find the topic. Anywho... I am using the blank template and have made a few changes to the size of text to aid my atrocious eyesight, but I cannot seem to find a setting to change the size of the footer settings . The text is so small...

Word Substitutions List

My Windows laptop died, forcing me to work on my Macbook Air. I had a fair grasp of Scriv for Windows, but am finding the Mac version something of an uphill battle. I had a list of word substitutions on my Windows system (e.g. #fgd rendered as Fitzgerald) that I have difficulties replicating on the ...

Re: Help - Mac Newb All at Sea

Thank you. That entirely escaped me.

There's no pleasing some people. Now any idea how I change the ruler to show centimetres not inches?

Help - Mac Newb All at Sea

Usually, I pay attention to user manuals, but life has thrown a few spanners in the works, and my ability to concentrate has gone to the dogs. May I therefore ask for some assistance with the following: I have been using Scrivener for Windows from pretty much the get go and thought I had a good gras...

Re: Can I make a keyboard shortcut to quickly add auto-corrected words?

I would suggest that text replacement can probably get you to what you need. Go to Tools>Options> Select Corrections from items on left Click on Edit substitutions button Press + button In "replace" field type text to be - well, er, replaced e.g. #fpk In "with" field type the tex...

Re: Pre-Sale Question - Windows version worth it ?

There's a simple solution here. Download the trial version and take it for a spin. I have been using the Windows version from early on in the development process. It has actually helped me to get my words onto the page, where when I used Word, for instance, I bogged down and couldn't keep my novel o...

Scrivenings/Outline View Shuts Down Scrivener

Lately, every time I try to look at an outline view of my whole project, it invariably results in my project immediately shutting down. Does anyone know what is likely to be causing this? I would add that my project is a hefty one, because my wordcount is touching on 300K, well into trilogy territor...

Re: License manager ended unexpectedly

Yep, another one here.

Scrivener is now also taking its time to load, which it was not doing before.

Re: [Resolved} Scriv Crashes in Scrivenings Session

In case anyone has the same issue... It seems my laptop forced a shut down and my Scriv project closed without engaging the proper shut down sequence. I took me a while to figure out that on reopening, some of my scenes registered as either a zero word count or a word count of one. I corrected that ...
