[RC 11] $PageCount and $PageGroupTitle do not compile

At the Dropbox link is a dummy project I tested on Mac and Windows.

It works on Mac and fails on Windows.

Re: [LH4215] Compile (PDF) Bugs

This is STILL a bug. <$PageGroupTitle> doesn't compile in 2.9.9.11 (1078037) 64-bit - 14 Oct 2020. It works on the Mac and doesn't work on Windows.

[3.2 (14343) on Big Sur] Search options are missing

I don't see an arrow and haven't found a way to activate it. The same problem occurs in Light Mode.

Re: Bug: Instacrash after 3.2 upgrade

3.1.5 has been restored as the main download version on our site until I can work out what is going on here, as we have a bunch of users with this issue. It's bizarre as we have tested 3.2 on a number of machines - I myself have tested it on 10.14, 10.15, Big Sur, and I've tested on more than one c...

Re: Automatic Backup: similar to auto-save.

You don't need a backup every 2 minutes. Scrivener is NOT unstable enough to worry over it, unless your operating system/hard disk is unstable ... in which case all those many, many backups are not worth the bits they're printed on. If the machine is unstable, everything on it is unstable. All you n...

[LH4707] Keep with Next attribute on Mac becomes visible <$ScrKeepWithNextSplittable> code in Beta Editor

When I copy/paste a Mac v3 project to Windows and open it, a paragraph with Keep with Next now has a visible code instead of the hidden attribute. See my video at the Dropbox link below. (In it, I forgot to mention the Windows paragraph doesn't inherit the Keep With Next attribute as it should). I w...

Re: Image alignment bug

I disabled the last Replacement in the list, and the problem went away.

I can't imagine why it would affect one paragraph and not the other, but I don't remember what it was supposed to do, anyway!

Image alignment bug

In a title page with the same image at top and bottom, one compiles properly, but the other is pushed to the right and half is unseen. Below are screenshots of the title page in Editor, the replacements I use for images (they work!), and the compiled result. title page.jpg replacement rules.jpg comp...

[RC09] line heights inconsistent between Mac & Windows

When I migrate a project from Mac to Windows or copy in Mac Scrivener and paste in Windows beta Scrivener, a line can get the line height of text in the FOLLOWING line. The difference is visible as too-large & too-small pilcrows in the attached screenshots of a title page. When it's too large, b...

Re: Ctrl-G to access menus doesn't work

HOWEVER, on a related note, the manual twice mentions View->Show Invisibles, but there's no such menu item. Not at my machine. In v1, it's Format > Options > Show Invisibles. I found that later, but the v1 MANUAL mentions View->Invisibles, and that's not where it is. (It's too late to worry much ab...

Re: Ctrl-G to access menus doesn't work

Disregard all after "hello". I was pressing Ctrl-S when I meant Ctrl-Z, and I didn't test other Ctrl-G commands.

My bad.
