AutoHotkey script to integrate Scrivener with EndNote

I've set up a script in autohotkey which sets up 'F1' as a hotkey for swapping between endnote and scrivener, and automatically inserting the citations. All it really does it switch between the programs, and copy and paste the references that are selected within the endnote program. Combined with a ...

Scrivener breaks file links with em-dash in filename

Some of my folders on my harddrive have em-dashes in their names. When I drop a link to documents in these folders into Scrivener, the link initially works. Soon enough, the em-dash seems to get replaced by a question mark, and the link breaks. An example of why using things like em-dashes in filena...

Re: Maintain editor size when showing/hiding inspector

Reminded of this request by seeing another app which implements this nicely. Max 7 by Cycling 74 has hidable panes - when there is no room on the screen they appear overlapping the main workspace. But when there is room to do so, they expand outward, increasing the total width of the window, and the...

Some keyboard shortcuts impossible to set

On version 1.9.6.0 it seems to be impossible to set the keyboard shortcut; Ctrl+Shift+1 Actually pressing the keys results in the 'key sequence' box results in Ctrl+Shift+! Also, pasting in the text from another editor doesn't work as a workaround, even though pasting is possible via the context men...

Re: Maintain editor size when showing/hiding inspector

ps, a clumsy workaround at present is to create windows layouts and switch between them to achieve the above. Lots of key presses involved at present, though, to switch between layouts. It'd be easier if it were possible to assign keyboard shortcuts to window layouts. That's another feature I'd real...

Maintain editor size when showing/hiding inspector

When using scrivener on a large screen, I've come to prefer using it in a smaller window (in front of a blank desktop background) for simplicity's sake. Ideally, I'd like to have the option to just show the text editor, and summon the binder or inspector when needed using keyboard shortcuts. At the ...

word wrap faulty in comments pane

I've mentioned this issue in a previous post without being sure if it was a fault http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=31353 . Now I'm sure it must be. There is no consistency in the wrap width in the comments pane after it has been used for a while. (For me, normal use o...

typing into hidden synopsis

Thanks very much for adding the ability to navigate around the inspector via keyboard shortcuts in the latest update. Its created some weird behaviour though: if the synopsis is collapsed and you navigate there with the keyboard, it gains focus but remains collapsed. You can type into it without bei...

Re: Scrivener for Academic writers

One possible way of dealing with point 2 in the OP is to reimport your final text after going through the revisions process in a word processor. I wrote my phd thesis in scrivener up until the point of a first draft of each chapter. Everything from then was done in Word, but at the end of it all, I ...

Re: toggle collection shortcut inoperative when toolbar hidden

I get the same behaviour on my laptop - but many of the same other programs are installed, so can't rule out a conflict. Can anyone confirm whether they are able to toggle the collection pane while the toolbar is hidden?
