[LH4395] Ruler Snap Seems to Be Slightly Off

I have my options set to have a ruler snap every 0.125 inches but when I go to move the icon that lets me add or decrease my indent it never comes out to 0.125 or 0.250.

Re: How compile custom metadata?

I must be missing some fundamental step because when I set this up all I get printed on the documents is <$custom:Element> no matter where I place it. Here is what I'm doing: I created a custom meta-data named 'Element' and I checked the wrap-text checkbox. I added the custom meda-data data into the...

Writing Tools Menu Actions & Options

I would love to be able to change the websites in the Writing Tools section and add others.

I HUGE help would be, however, for a Menu Action for each of the tools on any of the toolbars would be a productivity bonus.

Re: Default Binder Icons Do Not Stay Changed Based on Text Prese

Worked like a charm and the icons are displaying correctly.

The only issue I have is there was nothing to remind me to check the forum for a solution. Can Scrivener do that?

Default Binder Icons Do Not Stay Changed Based on Text Prese

Minor issue but wanted you to be aware: When I return to a project the binder icons for text files that chance based on the presence of text or synopsis text return to a blank icon even though text is present. Once I click on the file in the Binder it returns to the correct icon. The next time I ret...

Re: Scrivener is way more difficult than I expected

Not sure if this will be in time to help the user "Katex," but I have been kicking this topic around with other writers for a few years now and think her initial experience with Scrivener is common to a number of writers who are told about the program and decide to give it a try. In talkin...

Formatting Presets Help

Is it possible to create a custom layout for a numbered list and save the ruler setting as a Preset? I am using the detailed outline option that goes 1, 1.1, 1.1.1, etc., and want to format the lists so they line up and can't seem to figure out how to make it happen. In the image the first set is ho...

Re: Sync Like Functionality for Windows Version?

In the for what it's worth department I have been using Dropbox for years to store my Scrivener Writing Projects with few issues. As always, the warning to back-up your work is important because it is possible for Dropbox and other Cloud storage services to mess-up the Scrivener folder scheme. I als...

Re: Sharper split-window icons

That is simply outstanding news!

Soon we users of the Windows version will no longer be Feature Poor and will be able to walk with our heads held high!

Let me know if getting some coffee, energy drinks, etc., will help.

Re: List Features (Check Boxes and Numbered Sub-Lists)

A GREAT suggestion idea!

I would only add that expanding the options in general and offering a few more ways to build numbered lists would be a big help.

Thanks!

Thanks! Setting the Snap options made it a piece of cake... I wish I had the sense to ask that question a few years ago....

Setting Indents & Tabs

When moving the left indent out or the first paragraph indent or tabs I cannot seem to easily get them aligned evenly at increments such as 0.25, .5, or .20 without it drifting into something like .26, .52, or .22. I am setting them by sliding the settings on the ruler with my mouse but I am wonderi...

One the file menu choose Format and make sure the ruler is selected to show in the editor. When you have a indent or tab set you will see a...
