Re: Is Scrivener 3 really that much better than 1.9 for windows?

About: BTW: Uploading manuscripts I could sell to the cloud? Does it get any more moronic than that? Why not just share it on Bit Torrent then? Scrivener does not recommend or force anyone to use the cloud. It is up to the users who use cloud sharing services usually to work from multiple computers ...

Re: Linguistic Focus should have an option to use single quotes

It uses the Single/Double Quotes that you have specified in the Scrivener options. Adjust them to Dutch and it should work as expected.

Re: Word Count Not Compiling

The control over the compile counts is now part of the "Statistics" compile format view. Draft Target has the option "Only count documents set to be included in Compile". Obviously it will include only documents included(i.e. having a checkmark) inside the File > Compile > Conten...

Re: Can I revert to older version of Scrivener for Windows?

Try to disable your antivirus an try Scrivener again.
If Scrivener works as expected in this case, white list Scrivener and your Scrivener project folder with your antivirus application.

Re: Applying Status / Labels to multiple binder entries

Hi jo005597, thanks for the good words about Scrivener v3! About the Inspector Labels/Status changes, I think you have to separate Scrivenings mode from multiple Binder selection. When you select multiple items in the Binder, the Inspector Label/Status controls at the bottom are hidden and you canno...

Re: Version 3 - misc. issues + 1 specific Q: setting scroll bar width

I see the same problem in the Calibre screenshot. Most likely you have some Windows default setting which spoils the scrollbar sizes with Qt. This happens only with the default Scrivener theme, as it is the only one using Windows defaults. The other Scrivener themes use specific settings and not Win...

Re: Backup Speed

The media that you use for backup could influence backup speed a lot. If you backup on an external memory card, it will be very slow. Backups over the network could be also slow. Backing up on your local computer HDD, will be much faster. It also depends on your backup options(with/without zip archi...

Re: RC21 "Could not save project document"

Your antivirus application (most likely McAfee) is blocking Scrivener from modifying its project documents. Whitelist Scrivener and your project folder. Also check the forum, there are several threads with reports and fixes of this error.

Re: [BUG] Menus are still rendering incorrectly - this was pointed out in the last release

Yes, this is a known problem with the Theme style sheets which is not easy to fix unfortunately. We tried fixing it few times, but the result caused bigger issues. We will give it another try when we have less pressing issues to fix.
