Re: Setting Default Paragraph Spacing

Go to Options > Editing > Formatting.

There's a box with a Nietzsche quote in it. Above that there's a ruler. Above that there are drop downs to choose font, style, size, justification, spacing, etc. to set up your document defaults. You'll find the spacing drop down on the far right.

Re: Auto correct and no apostrophes for contractions

I'm just suggesting that it may not be a bug, just L&L deciding to do something differently. I doubt it's a bug. Scrivener's auto-correct system has always been asinine. I turned it off years ago because I got tired of having my typos "corrected" to the least likely possibility, and e...

Re: WIndows 3 Release: My Thoughts

3. 1.9 it's a product marginally cheaper but greatly lacking when compared to Mac's v3. Windows dimes are as good as Mac's- Products should be something similar and by golly after almost three years they've had time enough to deliver. I don't think nobody does is harmed by venting their impatience....

Re: WIndows 3 Release: My Thoughts

There have also been some recent critical updates to the release version of Scrivener for Windows. Are those also "disheartening?" Actually ... yes. Because those half-dozen critical updates are to fix a licensing issue that for some reason only affects Windows users and also because thos...

Re: Beta 25 DATA LOSS IN NAME GENERATOR TOOL

The new name generator is a big improvement -- a nice variety of sensible names at last. I was a bit tired of playing around with the name generator and getting such lovely results as Phalti Palti Sieradzki and Melanippos Smeriglio or 17 different ways to spell "Jasmine," none of which wer...

Re: unable to verify your activation for more then two months

The support department and developers have repeatedly said, including in this thread, that we are aware of the problem and are working on it. It would be helpful if you would merge the half dozen or so threads on this topic, since official responses from L&L team members are scattered throughou...

Re: Commitment & responsibility...

I can’t describe how disappointed I was to learn yesterday of yet another missed deadline, another broken promise. And as for the developer accepting responsibility for this, what does that mean? It seems to mean that he spent the day in hiding while Keith ran interference for him. Keith made sever...

Re: Commitment & responsibility...

Isn’t it a bit spiteful to deprive those other writers you supposedly care about of the opportunity to use the best program out there, and get a free upgrade, just because you have a snotty over V3 being delayed a few more weeks? No, it's not spiteful. It's prudent. I think the OP is quite right to...

Re: Release on Aug 30 confirmed?

I still see a lot of bug reports. It looks like the scheduled day will be postponed. I do hope to be wrong. Any news? You're not wrong. They're missing the promised release date. Raise your hand if you're surprised. :roll: From the Beta 22 release notes; We have made significant progress with this ...

Re: Where's strikethrough?

Go to View - Customize Toolbars. Strikethrough is on the list, though not grouped with Bold, Italic and Underline. It's just after Math Type Equation. Don't ask me why.

Re: [LH3575] Space between paragraphs

So... Beta 20 was released today. I didn't see LH3575 listed in the bug fixes, but I downloaded the new beta anyway, expecting to do no more than look at the editor, shudder, and close it up again. Imagine my delight when I opened it up and discovered the phantom lines between paragraphs are gone. Y...

Re: [LH3575] Space between paragraphs

3) The Scrivener editor is not WYSIWYG and was never promised to be. That's the whole point of the Compile process -- to decouple what you see on the screen from what gets placed in the final output. There's a difference between non-WYSIWYG and the bug that creates phantom lines in the editor. It's...

Re: [LH3575] Space between paragraphs

I, too, was hoping that this bug would finally have made its way to the top of the to-do list and been resolved in Beta 19 . I know it's minor in the scheme of things, but it's a showstopper for me nonetheless, because I can't stand looking at all those extra lines between paragraphs. Will it be fix...

Yep, that's where it came from. It's nice that Lee made a commitment to a date, and I'd love to be proved wrong this time, but my expectations remain low.
