Re: Scrivener 1913 Sluggish Start

And when was the last time you rebooted? By rebooting do you mean restarting Scrivener or restarting the PC? If any of them would help to eliminate sluggishness, can you explain why? I meant rebooting the PC. I suggested it because rebooting the PC is low-hanging fruit. If I had a dollar for every ...

Re: Scrivener 1913 Sluggish Start

Scrivener 1913 is starting slow and sluggish since yesterday. After I click on the icon, it takes about five seconds to open and when it does the menu buttons are missing and the type in the Binder and Editor is small. It takes 10-20 seconds for the menus to appear and the type to become normal siz...

Thank you Katherine, updating to 1914 did the trick. Lag is now reduced to 2 seconds. Much obliged! :)

Re: Where do I find word history?

Hello Scribbles, The excellent news for you is that presumably, due to your post and post count, you have not had Scriv for windows all that long, and as such the move to the very latest version will be a free upgrade. For all the trouble we've had from Paddle past months, version 3 should be free ...

Re: Scrivener NOT WORKING AGAIN

I too just opened Scrivener and it would not log in. It made me copy my registration and reverted me to trial status. I then had to re-enter my registration code. It's interesting that it indicated it could not log me in and gave me my registration code right there on the screen then reverted me to...

Re: Scrivener NOT WORKING AGAIN

Please open a support ticket. It is not possible for us to help with registration issues via the forum because they almost always require non-public personal information. https://www.literatureandlatte.com/contact-us We are aware of the issue. It appears to be coming from the Paddle registration co...

Scrivener NOT WORKING AGAIN

I haven't used Scrivener for a week, and just now I opened it and it threw the pirated crap at me after two months of no problems. Then it wouldn't accept my reg information. You people @ scrivener and paddle should own up to this problem and fix it once for all. The program has been working for yea...

Re: How to edit a file in split screen without affecting locked version?

Thank you Jim for your tip, and thank you Amber for the good news of comparing a file to a snapshot. I look forward to that. :D

How to edit a file in split screen without affecting locked version?

OK, I open a file, split the screen to have two copies of the same file. Lock the top and start editing the bottom. Can Scrivener edit the bottom screen WITHOUT simultaneously changing the top, original version? Yeah, I know I can take a snapshot, but that doesn't help me in visually comparing the e...

Re: The Case of the Hanging Article

Thank you Jennifer for your reply. No, my issue has nothing to do with script formatting. If you look at the first line of your reply you'll see an "a" hanging there by itself. Typographically that's not acceptable (having been an editor all my life, and I can't sleep if there's one totter...

The Case of the Hanging Article

In Screenplay mode, I'm getting lots of hanging (hung to be accurate) "a"s. How do I fix them?
