Re: Search question / suggestion

This serves as a reminder of why I love Scrivener - because the thinking behind it makes so much sense.

Thank you for taking the time to let me know, and now that I see your point, I couldn't agree more.

Re: Search question / suggestion

Ah-hah. Thank you. That's a big help. Though... just curious, why is that last remembered position favored over where one is trying to go, which is to the highlighted search word, requiring the extra step you provided of cmd-G? Again, just curious, so if this is just wasting time explaining somethin...

Search question / suggestion

With everything about Scrivener being as terrific as it is - four years now of being my absolute favorite software ever - I wouldn't be surprised to learn that what I'm asking about here isn't something I've failed to learn to control properly. Apologies if this has been addressed, elsewhere in the ...

My Scrivener Plug

Just thought I'd pass this on, since I plug Scrivener, the greatest software ever coded, in it.

Just a drive by hi

Hi, All Scriveners: I've been absent from the forum for quite a while, but all of it was while working on projects done on Scrivener. I finished working on a film about early aviation, and it was horrible trying to mesh the various stories that needed inclusion, the history that needed reduction to ...

Re: Ideas wanted for a talk I'm giving

It's not just that Scrivener is easy to start using - what instantly drew me was the promise it showed to help me organize piles of disparate types of notes. Got boxes full of notes on post-its, torn sheets of hotel stationery, notebooks, napkins? Bookmarks for hundreds of web sites? Scanned documen...

Re: Full-screen toggle; command-Z

That's just a full-screen layout - it hasn't been set as the default full screen layout yet. Ctrl-click on it and tick "Use Selected Layout When Entering Full Screen". The arrows will turn blue to indicate that it will be used as the default full screen layout. Fantastic - fixes everythin...

Re: Full-screen toggle; command-Z

Sorry, you lost me. Which part is falling down for you? If you use the same layout in full screen, by the way, you can set it as the default full screen layout - then that layout will be loaded whenever you hit the arrows in the corner of the window to enter full screen. I'm afraid this doesn't wor...

Re: Full-screen toggle; command-Z

You can work around this, though, just by selecting the "Full Screen Screenplay" layout when *not* in full screen. This will load that layout and move you into full screen automatically, and leaving full screen will return things to how they were before you entered - this is a feature whe...

Re: Full-screen toggle; command-Z: Fourth Screenshot

Fourth screenshot - this is the way it looks after the toggle back from my adjusted Full Screen layout. I then use the saved layout to return to the first screenshot in the series in the last post. This is not that big a deal - I just thought you'd like to be kept posted. Thanks, B 111017-0001.jpg

Re: Full-screen toggle; command-Z

1. When toggling between full screen mode and the regular view, adjusted window layouts are lost as soon as I toggle. So, using command-control-F, I go to the full screen view, I have to mouse around to Window>Layouts> and then the saved layouts if I want my windows back. I'm not quite sure what yo...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day (NIAD)... Day

Thanks to everyone - this turned out to be a lot of fun. I just read the book, and it had me all the way through. I think everybody did a great job...

I especially appreciate all the work Pigfender put in and the story from Tim.
