Re: How to access Linguistic Focus?

Awesome, this (and the adverbs highlighting) is one of the few features I actually used in the Linguistic Focus option on the Mac. I've got ProWritingAide for the big stuff, which I think does what it does much better than even what Scrivener on the Mac does by itself. I just want to say thanks to t...

Another one here with the same problem. I think I saw this on the previous beta version too.

Re: Scrivenings

I'm also waiting for this as I thought Scrivener 3 for Windows is supposed to implement that. It's something that I use from time to time on my Mac version of Scrivener 3 and I was excited to see it come to Windows, although it hasn't been implemented yet. Is it just something that's going to be see...

Re: Great Product but ...Dictionary and Synonyms

It's been my experience (I've used Scrivener with both Windows and Mac, Scrivener being the thing that got me to accept switching) that finding a Windows equivalent for the very handy and quite powerful Apple Dictionary app that comes standard with macOS and getting it to work with Scrivener is incr...

Re: [NB] New Compile Dialog WIll Sink You

I'll back up the developers (xiamanese) and others in that old users will find this daunting. It took me a good month to change over the way I was thinking. But i do believe, once a new user figures out and get's a feel for how the interface works, and that's actually many times quicker to learn in ...

Re: Ebook Compile with As-Is option not working right

OH WOW! I am a moron, with a capital M. That fixed it (using Epub2). Now I get to get back to learning how to play with all the features and, eventually finish the book(s) I'm currently in progress with. Thank you so much, it was a little fix.

Re: "As-Is" compile options not compiling right

Okay, I was stupid and posted this problem yet again in a different thread, this time with screenshots of exactly what I'm talking about. I posted this right before going to bed last night and completely forgot about it when I got home. Here's the link to the post I made earlier today with screensho...

Ebook Compile with As-Is option not working right

Okay, for years I've used Scrivener to keep an archive of internet articles and blog posts on writing that I've found useful. I've used the as-is compile feature in the previous iterations of Scrivener and just formatted the articles the way I wanted to see them in the documents, like so: Screen Sho...

"As-Is" compile options not compiling right

The new As-Is feature isn't preserving the different font sizes, paragraph breaks, and other formatting settings on compile. I'll have an 18-point first line, 24-point title, and the body of the document will be in 12-point with 10-point breaks in between paragraphs (no indenting) and the As-Is opti...

Re: I need a real person to speak with! Is there a phone number for technical assistance?

Honestly, I've found the email support to be more personal, helpful, and thorough than most telephone support places because telephone centers and customer support are staffed primarily by a bunch of folks who barely speak English and basically read their troubleshooting from a script. They can't fi...

I like to write to music without lyrics too, although Linkin' Park and Evanescence, among others, have inspired some of my characters. My soundtracks list includes: Harry Potter 1-3 Lord of the Rings Trilogy The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Pirates of the Caribbean 1-3 Chronicles of Narnia 1&2 ...

Re: New document text just types write off the edge of the page

I think that got it. I probably should have mentioned I brought this particular preference over from the Windows version which is what I started on. I read somewhere they were supposed to be cross-compatible. I guess this was a bug.

Thank you for taking the time to reply to my question.

New document text just types write off the edge of the page

Whenever I open a new document, I'll start typing and as I hit the point where it should automatically wrap into the second line, the text just continues going clean off the side of the page. It's still there. All I have to do is save the project, close it, then immediately reopen it and all the tex...
