Re: How do I use Scrivener 3 with two authors

I while I do still hava a license, I think I would no longer use Scrivener until it would use native markdown format. Using markdown would sort the GIT issue and also play well with other tools/platforms. I may be biased because I need it only for technical writing in a collaborative manner, where m...

Scrivener keep using Optima when printing to PDF

It seams that in my case Scrivener does override my font (Lucida Grande) with Optima, even if I configured it to replace the font with Lucida Grande in Compile-Formatting.

So shortly, the override from Compile does not seam to work for me. Any hints?

Re: What are the tags/variables that I can use for page settings

Thanks!,

On my system the help-search does return nothing for these keyword like tag variable (works for some other words). I don't know if this does reproduce on other systems.

PS. Still this is not an excuse for me not reading all the items form the Help menu ;)

Spelling underlines are looking weird, blurry

I am not sure if this problem is specific to OSX 10.7 Lion but in Scrivener the red underlines made by the Spellchecker are looking really buggy/ugly. I compared with other applications and even if I am not totally pleased by how it looks overall it's clear that under Scrivener they look uglier. Scr...

Re: How do I clear formatting (use styles)?

Can't we have a clean-formatting option eventual one that can be run over several selected documents? I am doing a lot of copy and paste from different sources and once the formatting (especially font) is modified it is a nightmare to repair it. BTW, I observed the the toolbar is disabled if you try...

Links without underscore

I would like to be able to disable the underscore for non-hovered links inside the documents. This is a common practice on the web, specially because it does increase readability of the document. I see no problem having the underscore visible when the link i hovered but when it isn't this should not...

Re: Bookends vs Sente (it's not redundant)

I think that this tread should be moved to Scrivener > Support because it more important about integration of these products with Scrivener.

I will be glad too see more votes and reviews here and if possible to rename the topic to " Citation managers usage and comparison: Bookends, Sente, Pages, EndNote, ..." . Also, in order to gather more feedback from OS X users regarding book managers, I opened a question on apple.stackexch...

I already considered this and tried it, but all the menu items for formatting are disabled and due to this the shortcut doesn't work. The drop-down works. I am using 2.0.5.5

Re: Scrivener with SizeUp

I am not complaining about the minimal width, which by the way is lower than half-of-1680. In fact my only regret was regarding the fact that the formatting bar is not customizable, or to be more exact that the most important button (style) is the last and due to this not visible when the applicatio...
