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...

Count actually typed words

One thing missing from Scrivener for me is the ability to count actually typed words. While the 'Session Target' popup (Project --> Project Targets) is somewhat helpful, it does not accurately reflect how much words I really typed during the current session. For example, if I duplicate (part of) a d...

Is there a topic by the way where I can find more information on Scrivener 3? I couldn't find it with the search.

Re: Zoom to a specific percentage

May I ask for an update? Would still love to zoom to a specific percentage.

Changing the font size doesn't work for me, because I use different font sizes in my Scrivener documents.

Double quote (quotation mark) is reversed

With Scrivener 1.8.6.0 on Windows 7 SP1, the opening double quote (i.e., quotation mark) is reversed when placed inside parentheses:

Underline also affects bullet points (list)

With Scrivener 1.8.6.0 on Windows 7 SP1, underline formatting also affects the bullet point of a list. I don't think that's right; Scrivener is the first text editor I've used that does this.

Re: How to set the binder's margin?

I'm not sure you actually need to adjust or set the margin itself. Just grab the divider between the binder and the editor and drag it to the right. I typed in "the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog" and when I dragged the divider far en...

How to set the binder's margin?

Hi, By default documents in my binder look as follows: before_scr.11-04-2015 10.41.53.png But when I go to the Options (F12) and press 'Apply' (that is, without changing _any_ option), the binder's right margin switches to the following in Scrivener 1.8.6.0 (on Windows 7 SP1): after_scr.11-04-2015 1...

Re: [1.7.2] Lag when typing letters and words

I was able to get rid of this by changing the "save after period of inactivity" setting. It defaults to "2 seconds," which means that every two seconds you don't touch something, it starts the save process. This will introduce a "lag" feeling, because it's actually sav...

Re: [1.7.2] Lag when typing letters and words

Any update on this? It still happens with Scrivener 1.8.5.0.
