What is that tab on the left side in your full screen mode? Is it part of Scrivener, or a third party application?

Sigh. I understand (and applaud) the basic philosophy behind Scrivener being a "writing" tool, not "layout" tool – especially when it comes to the actual work environment – but when it comes to printing I wish that there was a little lattitude given to producing "manusc...

Thanks


Yeah, I'd also like something like that. I don't know why there isn't a keystroke for that already.

Standard OS X text features such as spell-checking and correction will not be modified by Scrivener. If you really dislike it, tell Apple, at bugreport.apple.com. :) This is not meant to be facetious, just a fact of development. All the best, Keith It's not really "modifying" any more tha...

Pg-Dn on Laptop?

Since my PowerBook doesn't have a dedicated Pg-Dn key, I was wondering if there is a key combo that accomplishes the same thing? Apple+Down Arrow just goes to the bottom of the entire document in Scrivener, not scrolling down like [space] in a web browser would do, and option+Down Arrow just goes do...

I just tried correcting that error, and the time involved was nil. Perhaps you could wait and run a spelling check at intervals? Or else type more accurately? I type fairly accurately but still in a ten minute period there will certainly be the occasional error (I probably have 5 or 6 at least in t...

Didn't read the whole thread but if this is about text modes applying to different projects I agree: it's annoying to set it to Screenplay mode in one project only to make a file later on in a different project that should just be in general and getting very confused at the odd formatting.

Quick Spelling Correction

Often I make a small typo, such as exspansion. It obviously flags it right away, but in order to correct it I have to switch to the mouse, right click and then either click or type the first letter of the correct result and hit enter. This takes too long. Is it possible to have either (1) an option ...

There was a post somewhere around that actually suggested scrivener as an e-book reader ;) Yeah, but it takes too much work on my end sorting things into sections, etc. I want a reader that I can just open any .txt, .html, .pdf file with, does full screen and opens to the same place it was closed t...

Maybe I'm missing something but if you want to change the margins for a paragraph, you need to move the downward triangles, the first (for left margin) and last (for right margin). Nothing else. Just to check, I just did that, exported the file as rtf to Mellel and got exactly the margins I have se...

Sorry if I'm stating the obvious, but I'm not sure if I understand the problem and it's not clear to me how much experience you have on the mac. I assume you realize that the ruler acts on all selected text, if there is no selection only the paragraph with the cursor in it will be affected by chang...

You're welcome! Have fun! Dave For some weird reason if I move the down arrow (left margin) one inch in from 0, the right margin one inch in from 8, all the text is lined up skewed to the right. I can try to adjust it but it's almost impossible to get perfect and doesn't make any sense to me at all.
