Oohh, didn't know that. The popups are working fine.

Re: [BUG?] RC9: Inline annotations counted in word count with include option unchecked

Hrmm. I have the Include comments and annotations UNCHECKED , but it is still counting the annotations. I don't use comments (perhaps I'll find a reason to someday), so I have no idea if this is a bug there as well. Same here--I just popped into the forum to see if this issue had already been repor...

Re: Writing History claims that words in Draft Folder are words in Other (RC 2.9.9.9)

It does look like there's a bug here, causing the Writing History "Draft" to be limited instead to the current compile group if Project Targets options are set to "Count compile group only". OOOHHH. That was helpful. I had a look at my Project Target options. "Count current...

Re: Writing History claims that words in Draft Folder are words in Other (RC 2.9.9.9)

Created a new document in the folder today, made sure Include in Compile was checked, double checked that Short Story is indeed the Draft Folder. Typed 7 words and they all showed up under "Other" in Writing History. I'm probably missing something, but I'll be buggered if I can figure out ...

[LH4683] Writing History claims that words in Draft Folder are words in Other (RC 2.9.9.9)

Could be user error rather than a bug. Today I've written 86 words in the Draft Folder, which long ago I renamed Short Story. Writing History, however, says I've written 0 words in the Draft Folder and 86 words in Other. Same goes for every other day going back to July 9--0 in Draft Folder, lots in ...

Copyholders vs Quick Reference--not a bug, just a usage question

Quick question. A Copyholder pane can become a Quick Reference window with the click of an icon. (The icon next to the 'x' that closes the pane.) Can Quick Reference windows become Copyholders in a similar way? Is there an icon or a shortcut I can use to turn a Quick Reference window into a Copyhold...

RC4, Composition Mode, Unchecking "Override text color with color" does nothing

Did a quick search, couldn't find this in the beta forum. Sorry if I've missed it. Going to Options > Appearance > Composition Mode > Colors > Text and unchecking Override text color with color seems to have no effect for me? Tried clicking Apply and OK, then restarting Scrivener, still no change.

It is within weeks - just more weeks than we expected :lol:

:lol: I like your positive attitude!

Me, I don't mind how long it takes, cos we're getting it free in the meantime. :)

Re: Release on Aug 30 confirmed?

It's a no-win. Release the software for sale before it's ready and people will complain that you shouldn't release such buggy software. Wait until the bugs are ironed out and that's no good either, it took too long. Didn't Hemingway shoot himself because the new version of his preferred typewriter w...

[LH3869] RC1. Composition Mode Backdrop not remembered after closing/re-opening a project

LOVE RC1! Could be my slow-ass computer with its dodgy RAM, but I can't get Scrivener 3 to remember that I've chosen a background image from my PC for use in Composition mode. 1. Project > Project Settings > Background Images > Choose from disk > [Select an image] > OK. 2. Hit F11 to enter Compositi...

Re: Thanks for the update regarding release!

Is there perchance an RSS feed for the blog ? I must be subscribed to an old RSS feed in my Feedly, because that thing hasn't updated in ages and I wasn't aware of the Windows news until I saw this thread. Any help? Also, just echoing what others have said: I'd rather have a great piece of software...

Re: Double Paragraph Breaks

I noticed this too, but figured the setting to eliminate that line break between paragraphs was hiding somewhere in a menu that I couldn't find.

Good to know it's not just me!

Maybe you ought to add a bold Relax, people, we never fail to release a new version in time for the current one's expiration to the Scrivener 3 Announcements post. :)
