macOS Big Sur and Dark Mode

First of all, I understand that I am running the Beta version of the next OS release, macOS 11, Big Sur. This isn't so much a call for technical support as it is a notice that font colors for readability in Dark Mode don't work under Big Sur. What I mean is that when you have a Dark Theme turned on ...

Re: Part and Chapter Names

Read the friendly manual! That's how you figure it out. I swear that wasn't there before, but now I feel blind. Please have a good laugh at my expense.

I'm all set now.

Part and Chapter Names

I'm sure I'm missing something obvious, but I need to be able to name parts and chapters. I thought just by naming the folder that contained the documents that made up the parts and chapters it would name them appropriately on compile. How does one edit or create such names. For example instead of: ...

Re: [LH4366] Fixed Width Color

Thank you for making this product such a high quality tool for writers. I've switched from Mac to Windows recently and I was pleased to have the beta to ...

[LH4366] Fixed Width Color

I have made what amounts to an all Black version of Scrivener to help reduce the energy used by my 4k display. The problem is that the "Fixed Width" color in the main editor section reverts to dark gray every time I close the app and reopen it. I change it back, but it never sticks. A VERY...

No More Dropbox

Please offer an alternative to Drop Box when working with iOS! I had so much trouble with it I deleted it from my iPad Pro (which was heart breaking). After having nearly lost hours of work on multiple occasions, I just want OneDrive or iCloud Support. Even Google Drive Support! Something that will ...

Re: Shortcuts for Bold and Italic work fine in the Characters Section with any font that has italics

I have no doubt that it is. I just want Literature & Latte aware so they can get it patched eventually. I can live with it for the time being.

Re: Shortcut for Bold and Italic not working with Times New Roman

I'm sorry, I missed that you were using Catalina before. Are you able to duplicate the problem with Mojave? Katherine I can't currently answer that as my only other machine (which was running Mojave) is suffering technical issues that require some repair. I would guess that the issue is absolutely ...

Katherine


In all projects using Times New Roman (which is really all of them for me). I haven't tested all the other fonts, but even if there is an issue with other fonts, the root cause will be the same.

I hope that is helpful.

Re: Shortcut for Bold and Italic not working with Times New Roman

Do you have the Cheat Sheet installed? It looks up all the keyboard shortcuts in apps and display them when you long-press the command key. If Scrivener beeps, the shortcuts shouldn't exist, or could possibly be mapped to something else, which should be seen in the Cheat Sheet. So that's not it. Th...

I've restarted and even shut down, waited 30 seconds and then reboot. Also reset PRAM.

Re: Shortcut for Bold and Italic not working with Times New Roman

Are those fonts available in TextEdit? Scrivener depends on the Mac OS text system for font support, so if TextEdit doesn't have it, we won't either. Katherine That's the first thing I did! I opened text edit and made certain I could bold, italicize and underline there. I could. I then checked Font...

Shortcut for Bold and Italic not working with Times New Roman

When I try to use the keyboard shortcut for Bold or Italic it gives me the error beep. When I look in the Format menu under Font, those options are grayed out.

macOS Catalina, Scrivener 3.1.3

Helvetica works as expected, but I don't write in Helvetica.

Thank you.
