Re: Any need to update Scrivener v1.9.9 to v1.9.12 before using Scrivener v3?

Thanks twice, Devin. One, for answering the question about updating from v1.9. Two, for demonstrating an economy of words. From your succinct response, I realize that I could have, and should have, posed my question in about 5% of the words that I used. Geesz. Well, which one is better depends on w...

Re: Add/Import Web Page function not working

Hi Chris, and welcome to the forums, and to Scrivener! The sad fact is that the current Windows version of Scrivener does a very poor job of importing Web pages--if we define "very poor job" as "no job at all." The underlying code framework in which Scrivener for Windows was writ...

Re: Dissapointment in the Windows Team

To indicate that anyone who points out the failure of the windows version to keep up with the Mac version results in that person to be a failure is very flawed logic. And to say that a person should buy the IPad version so that they may a more up to date version is also flawed in so many ways as th...

Re: Link not working when using file path

Thanks, all, good to know I'm not that confused! I don't like having to add slashes, but I at least know that I have to do it, and more or less why. I really hope they're able to program the final version so that pore, iggerant lit'ry types don't have to jump through unnecessary hoops.

Re: Link not working when using file path

I'm not using the beta, but in v. 1.9.9, I do find that it is still necessary to insert a / manually into the Link dialogue when linking to a File. Not if you select No prefix. Ah, brilliant! Sorry I missed that. I think they changed the thing from using two systems to one. So it no longer recogniz...

Re: Feature request: restore exact position

I'm not using the v. 3 beta, but in v. 1.9.9, as in previous Windows versions of Scrivener, this already happens: a project opens to the last document being edited, with the cursor in the last position it occupied. If this is a matter of a feature that is not present in the v. 3 beta, then (and prob...

Re: Link not working when using file path

File and No prefix paths ultimately need to look like this: file:///C:\path\to\file\name.txt That is, it needs to be a fully-qualified URL for a local filename. So when you paste a path, and don't do anything else to it, and click on "file" for a prefix (the prefix is the "file://&qu...

Re: BETA 18: Font Bug? Modern font looks broken

This is a sample of the "Modern" font, at 24 points, in WordPad on my Windows 7 machine. Pixelated and broken it is (though not that much less readable than the font used in this forum, frankly).

Re: Difficulty in finding Windows support

I have been using Scrivener for Windows and Mac for some time now. I use the windows version more than I use the Mac and have found it very difficult to find information on how to use Scrivener for Windows. Many of the options in Mac are not available for Windows such as adding a word to the dictio...

Re: How to preserve italics in paste/match style?

This is a great tip for pasting text into Scrivener, and will save me a lot of time -- but I'm having the same problem copying and pasting stuff outward from Scrivener into a standard word processor: The italics, bold, and underline are lost. This is a huge, glaring, teeth-grinding problem. I'm usi...

Since you're using the beta, this problem can probably best be addressed in the beta forum: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=57. I hope they are able to devise a solution.

Since this has to do with the functioning of the beta version, it is most useful to report it in the beta forum: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=57.
