Lookin' and Likin'

I have the autocorrect enabled, which I love. But some of my characters have accents and say things like lookin', likin', bein', robbin', etc. where they leave off the ending G. Problem is Scrivener autocorrects it. I can take the word and have it Learn Spelling, but there are hundreds of words that...

Re: Mac Dictation Quotations

Thanks for the excellent suggestions everyone.

Looks like I'll just have to do the "Convert Quotes to Smart" before compiling my finished novel.

No big deal. Much appreciated!

Hyphen Ending Quotations

If I have a sentence that reads something like.. "You don't understand the-" ... where there is a hyphen, followed by a quote (such as when a character interrupts another. The end quotation mark points the wrong way, on the outside instead of the inside. I can combat this by putting the qu...

Mac Dictation Quotations

When I use Mac Dictate in Scrivener, saying Quote and End Quote, it adds " marks to the screen, but they are vertical up and down. Compare this to when I type them, and the front and end quotes point inward. This would be no big deal if they showed up properly when I compiled, but this isn't th...

Notes Wider by Default

How can I make a new note, by default, wider than what it currently is set as? I've tried numerous styling things, read through the manual, and can't figure this out!

Longer Dashes

I like using big dashes that are twice the size of a regular em dash. When I was using Windows Scrivener, it was easy. I'd just stick two em dashes next to each other and everything would be fine. However, on the Mac, doing so creates a tiny space in-between the em dashes, which I feel looks unprofe...

Re: Making Cursor White

I set the insertion point to white, which made the blinking line part white. I'm talking about my actual mouse cursor to be white. Is there any way to do that?

Making Cursor White

I've set it up so in full screen composition mode, it's a black background with white letters and a white cursor. I have the regular editor mode setup with a black background with white letters, but the cursor is black and it's almost impossible for me to see it. Do you know how to make it white? Is...

Color changes

I've setup full screen mode so that it has a black background with white letters. However, I can't figure out how to do this for the regular editing mode. Help!

Export to multiple Word files

I have each of my chapters broken down into folders. I would like to export each chapter into Microsoft Word and have each chapter be broken down into its own separate Word document, instead of combining all into one document. Is there any way to do this?

Change Scroll Bar look?

Is it possible to change the look of the scroll bar? I have an all-black background with white letters when I'm in full screen mode, and would like the scroll bar to be different than the standard gray.

Scrivener inserting ""

I did editing in Microsoft Word, and then imported those files back into Scrivener. When I did so, on several occasions it inserted an additional quotation mark. I double checked, and in Word it wasn't there and I didn't have track changes or anything like that on. So basically it looked like... Wor...
