Re: Scrivener freezes

OK. As I said, I don't have any concrete suggestions, since I've never tried to do this. Actually, just to test I did try it, creating a small table and putting in background colors using the table properties dialog. It didn't crash for me, so not helpful for you. You could report this in the bug re...

Re: Scrivener freezes

Quick question, though I haven't got anything substantive to contribute: is this in v. 1.9.x of the program, or the beta (v. 2.9.0.x)?

I will unsubscribe from this thread now, and I'm not coming back.

Wish I had time to read it all, but this seems to about sum it up.

Check this thread, which seems to concern the same problem, especially near the bottom of the thread: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=58973,

Re: MOVE TEXT TO THE CHAPTERS IN THE BINDER

Since this concerns the beta, it should be posted in the beta test forum, where it can be properly addressed: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=57.

Re: Autocorrect behavior differences to other word processors

I can't comment on the width of ellipses, but I think Scrivener's conversion of -- to an em dash makes more sense than conversion to an en dash. En dashes are used primarily with numbers, not words. According to the Chicago Manual of Style , the main exception is this: "The en dash can be used ...

Re: Forum problem

Opera does have a clear-on-exit option (which I have turned off), and an option to block 3rd party cookies (which I have turned on). But this just seemed to randomly happen, after several years of using this forum in Opera with these same settings. I'm perfectly content to put it down to "It's ...

Re: Forum problem

It happens to me randomly, periodically, and also on the Nisus forum too. I’ve no idea why the browser (Opera in my case on all platforms) suddenly forgets the cookies, but I just re-login enabling it. :) Mark Interesting. I (a) have also had this happen in another software-related forum, and (b) a...

Re: Is there anyway to copy and paste images into my text document?

Quoting the user manual, sec. 15.5, p. 165: "you can insert an image into the text either by dragging an image file in from Windows Explorer; dragging an image document in from the Binder, Outliner or Corkboard; or by selecting Edit > Insert > Image From File...." I find that dragging work...

Re: Forum problem

Needless to say, make sure you've got the "remember me" option checked.... Katherine Not entirely needless, evidently. :oops: But since I never log out of this forum, and never unchecked "Remember me," I still don't know how it came about. However, there are much more important ...

Re: unable to verify your activation for more then two months

Katherine, jumping in to ask how I can find out what version of .NET I have (I can't seem to find it in Control Panel). A little online searching found that it's kind of a "duh": in Windows 7, go to the Control Panel, Programs, and then Programs and Features or just Uninstall a program, a...

Forum problem

Sorry to post this here, but there doesn't seem to be a forum for forum issues. In recent days, every time I come back to the forum, even in the same day, I find that I'm logged out. I have to log back in. Anybody have any ideas how this is happening and what I can do? TIA.

Re: Is it possible to open a Documents folder from within Scrivener?

Well, what Argoed describes of course is a way of importing the folder and all its files and subfolders, and their files, etc., into Scrivener. If that's what Lincon wants to do, then yes, that would be the easy way to do it. But my impression was that Lincon wanted to access the folder structure as...

Re: Is it possible to open a Documents folder from within Scrivener?

Do you mean that you want to open the folder, browse through its contents, and perhaps select a file, all within Scrivener? No, I don't think Scrivener (or any other text-creation type software) is set up for that. I find that I can place a link to a folder in a Scrivener document (using Ctrl+G, Ctr...
