Re: Script Mode/Auto-complete Scene Headings SOLVED

In case others have the same problem, I thought I would post my discovery: scene headings will ONLY be automatically added to the auto-complete list if you TAB from the "int/ext" field into the "location" field. If you somehow end up typing, as I apparently did, the location does...

Script Mode/Auto-complete Scene Headings

Hi all! I have used script mode successfully for years, and am bumping into a problem: Usually, when I enter a new character name in the "character" style, or a location in the "scene" style, that text automatically gets added to the auto-complete list for the project. On my most...

Re: Scrivener 3 Crashing After macOS 10.15.4 Update

Last November (early adopter), I ended up rolling back to Mojave from Catalina on three different computers, after finding an OS bug described here: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=60094 (my bug report is at the end of the thread). Checked the board today in hopes th...

Re: Typing Lag

This is a bug in Catalina, related to the Mac OS text engine, which is used by most writing software, including Scrivener. After upgrading to Catalina in October, I discovered it-- I'm guessing anybody who types at a fast speed for very long periods of time will, and most folks don't. After reaching...

Re: iCloud Sync

Apologies if this question has been asked already in this very long thread. I am just starting to use iCloud for my general document syncing— because it turns out that Google Backup and Sync was slowing all my computer activity pretty dramatically, and I figured a built in sync solution would be sim...

Re: Sluggish typing in Composition Mode

I have noticed the same thing-- also on a new MacBook Air. I spent some time this afternoon setting up custom layouts so that I could have an almost distraction free view, because my screen was taking so long to catch up with my typing that it wasn't possible to work. I don't use a background, but I...

Re: Ignoring the time zone change in custom metadata = reverting to today's date

@silverdragon Thank you so much for replying so quickly. I very much appreciate your quick and friendly answers, in other threads as well. In fact, as I read THIS whole thread more carefully, and then looked up "what is my time zone relative to UTC?" I discovered that is exactly the offset...

Re: Ignoring the time zone change in custom metadata = reverting to today's date

Hi! I believe I am having a related problem, but I can't quite pin it down. I have always been able to successfully sync Scrivener and Aeon files. On my current project, all of my Aeon events are showing up in Scrivener with the custom metadata field set for four hours earlier. I am writing and sync...

Re: Feature Requests / Suggestions

Scapple is a perfect app, and perfect companion to Scrivener (another perfect app). I support the earlier wish that stacks would be more magnetic-- allowing you to insert a note into the stack without breaking the stack. Two wishes of my own: 1) I wish that there were a "tick-box" in Scapp...

Re: iOS has no distraction-free composition mode?

Thank you, Ian, for such a thoughtful summary! I agree! It's a wish list item, to be sure, in a program full of marvels. But it would be lovely.

Re: When "cork" isn't cork

Just getting used to the iOS version, which I really love, and like some others, was confused for many long minutes trying to figure out how to get my corkboard to look like a corkboard. On the Mac version there’s an option to set an image as the corkboard background, and I have done ever since I st...

Re: Disappearing insertion point (Mojave)

Hi! I logged in because I just updated to Mojave and am having what might be a related problem. In composition mode, my hovering insertion point (when you move your pointer over text, and your pointer turns into an insertion point that lets you select text) is extremely heavy-- as if it's in bold. I...

Re: Compile: How to hide the "text" "notes" "synopsis" headings....

Found it! Which often happens as soon as I post. :wink: For others who are similarly lost, there's a little "gear" at the top right hand corner of the "Section Layouts" section of the Edit Formats section. Clicking that gear offers several tick-boxes, including "Insert subti...

Compile: How to hide the "text" "notes" "synopsis" headings....

Sorry guys, I'm TOTALLY lost, and have spent twenty minutes failing to find the answer to what is surely a very simple question: I want to compile a quick outline that shows document/title headings along with notes/synopsis/text. I can't figure out for the life of me how to suppress the "Notes&...
