Re: Composition Mode - Project As Background

Hellooo, I just updated to Scrivener 3 and am loving it so far! But I'm having a bit of trouble with the background for composition mode; I don't want a background, rather I'd just like to see the project itself but faded--so composition mode sits on top of the normal scrivener project if that make...

Re: Access Text files with text editor / Workaraound for using on Android

When I upgraded to Mac Scrivener 3.0, I had to turn off external folder sync and turn it on again, regenerating all the sync files. The old sync files won't work with the new project format.

Re: How do I get rid of this gap?

Hover your mouse pointer exactly over the line under the word "Binder" and drag UP.

Hope this helps!

Re: Synopsis Template

Just create a new, blank document, fill in its synopsis with the prompts you want, and drag it into the templates folder. It's really that simple. If you need more details, look up section 7,5 in the manual.

Hope this helps!

Re: Moving text from one project to another

Mac Scrivener can have many projects open in separate windows. Are you asking about iOS Scrivener?

Re: Constant gain session word count

But… the screenshot @DevinGanger posted is from a Windows version. The Mac dialog looks quite different. Are you using the new Windows 3.0 version?

Re: Underscore in header keeps underlining on compile

OK, my bad. :oops: I found this obscure note in the manual (well, not obscure since it's in a screaming yellow box, but still...): Using Special Characters Since markup is allowed in these fields, some special punctuation marks set aside for markup cannot ordinarily be used. You can however instruct...

Re: Underscore in header keeps underlining on compile

Huh! That sounds like a Bug. Nasty little one, too. I'd suggest reporting this to L&L directly via the Bug Report link: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/bug-reporting One last thing to try, as a work-around: Pick some weird character (like "§") that you'd never use in your manuscript...

Re: Underscore in header keeps underlining on compile

There are a couple of things to try. Least likely to cause other compile complications: ⋅ Select Menu item Scrivener->Preferences... ⋅ In the Sharing pane, in the Export options, untick "Convert underscores to underlines when converting "Markdown". If you're not us...

Re: Search options no longer appear

I'm using Scrivener 3.2, running Big Sur. The project search function no longer gives any options. There is no dropdown menu for selecting parameters (see screenshot). What obvious thing am I missing? Or, what non-obvious thing must I do to have it work as it should? Thanks! As @kewms said, the men...

Re: Paste and Match Style on iOS Scrivener?

You want the "unstyled paste" option from the normal pop-up copy/paste/etc. menu. Or if you have a keyboard, the same keyboard shortcut as Mac: shift-option-cmd-V.

Hope this helps!

Re: Can't turn off "Do Not Disturb" in Composition Mode

This is the darndest thing. I seldom use Composition Mode, but as far as I can tell, it has no effect on Do Not Disturb whatsoever. I can't wait to find out what's going on.

Re: Scrivener 3 - Word count does not match

I can only tell you what I did. When I switched from Mac Scrivener 2.x.x to 3.0, I found the hyphenation difference (which, BTW, became more in accordance with publishers’ practices), did a compile comparison such as JimRac suggests, found that no words were missing, and shrugged. I like to kill mys...
