Re: Beta 39: Add to dictionary picks up following punctuation like comma and period.

I have noticed that the word and any following punctuation is highlighted by the spell check and, as consequence, the work AND the following punctuation is added to the dictionary. I noticed it happens when the new word is at the end of the sentence but it happens with commas as well. I had the sam...

[LH4365] Program interface mistakes Session Target 'words' for 'characters'

Not a serious bug, but a smallish error:

Specific template for 'Research' folder

Every Scrivener project starts out with a 'Research' folder and for good purpose: it's quite useful! But one important feature I feel is missing is a template specific for that 'Research' folder. Scrivener's templates are super useful, but as most writers will agree, the template we use for writing ...

[LH4313] Bug? Typing cursor/caret duplicates itself when moving in the document

When I move around in a document with the arrow keys (Up, Down, Left, and Right), I at times end up with two typing cursors: - One that shows my current typing position, - And the other (a duplicate) at the previous position. I can fix the problem by moving again with the arrow keys. Or by clicking ...

Bug? Missing collapse icons in 'Project Targets' window

When I write, I have the 'Project Targets' window open to see my progress towards the session count (and to frequently reset). But I don't want to see the 'Draft Target' there of the total project progress. In the old version 1.9.7.0 there are helpful 'collapse icons' for that: collapse-unwanted-sta...

Re: Reset session count at set time each day never resets

I have the same problem on version 2.9.0.37. I set my session target to reset at 1 o'clock in the morning. But when I started Scrivener today, the session count from yesterday was still there. It might be that Scrivener only performs that reset when it happens during a time that the Scrivener applic...

Change colour of 'active document title'

Hi! Hopefully this hasn't posted before, because I can't find it. The reason being I don't know how to call this element of Scrivener. :) 2020-02-11_19-15-05.png I like to change the colour of that 'active document title'. Is there a setting for it? I can't seem to find it. But it would be great to ...

Bug: cannot see word progress with Solarized Dark theme

When 2.9.0.37 Beta uses the Solarized Dark theme, I cannot see my progress in the 'Project Targets' window: 2020-02-11_16-36-09.png I would expect the 'Session Target' to have a bar that shows how far my 191 words progressed towards the target of 250. Edit: The coloured bar does appear, but only aft...

'Project Targets' window does not remember position

It's a small thing, but something that definitely helps with working with Scrivener: the 'Project Targets' window always opens in the middle of the screen, and not where I dragged it last. That's a bit annoying.

(Using 2.9.0.37 Beta, but same thing happened with 1.9.*.)

Re: Count actually typed words

How is Scrivener supposed to know where copy/pasted words come from? Sorry to stepped on your toes. But Scrivener can simply monitor copy/paste actions. It doesn't need to know where the actual words comes from. For example, some people prefer to use other tools for rough drafts for a variety of re...

Re: Foreign-language spell check

Is this feature something that will be possible with Scrivener 3? I looked at the 'Introducing Scrivener 3' page here but can't figure out whether the new Scrivener will make us set different options for different Scrivener projects. I hope that is possible, because currently Scrivener still limits ...

Re: Count actually typed words

(..) the ability to count actually typed words. Is this going to be fixed in Scrivener 3? I see that the statistics feature is described as: Keep track of how much you write each day using Writing Statistics. Since it literally says "keep track of how much you write" (and not how much you...

Re: Count actually typed words

I was not actually thinking of using project total word count, but the session target setting.* If you have the goal of typing a certain number of words in a session and (roughly) refrain from editing, you are in fact setting in with a word count value that seems precisely apt for use with the sess...

Re: Count actually typed words

I suspect the algorithm which could do what you envision accurately would be surprisingly complicated. Especially since you might be moving around and between documents and doing any kind of editing on the fly. It's not that complicated, I think. 'Simply' count the keyboard input as long as the Scr...
