Two bugs // 1) Compiler controlling documents // 2) Loads of comments running slow

Hi, got a couple of bugs in Scriv3, which I've been really enjoying. Hope they haven't been reported before -- I had a shufty and couldn't see them. 1) on my iMac, I use the Compiler in the left pane to control the document in the right pane. There's some weird behaviour about not being able to sele...

Re: UK formatting for >100 chapters

Cheers - looks like it's Apple messing with my juju. In future, I'll use decimals, of course.

One of the biggest bugs is when I hear American news stations say "two-thousand five", something spreading to the UK... Two thousand AND five, please...

Just curious, how many words does you novel have?


Just over 105,000.

Sorry one hundred five thousand... ;-)

UK formatting for >100 chapters

Hey - My latest novel has >100 chapters (140) and it renders the text as "one hundred one", i.e. US-style, whereas in the UK we'd have "one hundred and one". Obviously, I could have rendered it as numbers but I'm deep into an edit in Word. It would be useful to have some control ...

Two bugs - word count & project notes

Love the app - best writing package I've ever seen by a country mile. Got a couple of little bugs that I've noticed that still seem to be in v2.4.1 Word Count errors I expect the word count to be accurate but it can be a few thousand short. My current novel is 99,500ish halfway through the second dr...

Re: Scapple Beta - New Users Please Read

>The shortcuts use the Control key, not Shift - so it's Ctrl-Alt-Cmd-Down or Ctrl-Cmd-Down.

That's got it. Cheers!

Re: Scapple Beta - New Users Please Read

Potential bug - could just be me.

Trying to add connected nodes to an already existing node using the keyboard shortcuts, e.g. SHIFT-CMD-DOWN or SHIFT-CMD-ALT-DOWN for the arrow flavour, and nothing is happening. It works using the menu, but like my post above says, I'm a keyboard boy.

Re: Scapple Beta - New Users Please Read

I am really loving it and will definitely be buying the full version. I'm a recent convert to Scrivener and, as good as it is, I think its weakest area is in the idea-creation part - if you mangled it to be better you'd lose what is so good about it. Scapple looks like filling that gap really well. ...

Re: transfer files between two computers

I'm using Dropbox to sync my documents across my netbook and my desktop. One thing that would be useful would be to share the same dictionaries and settings (though I'd want different display settings...). Lots of interesting use cases around that but dropbox or iCloud or Googledrive integration wou...
