Re: Lock In Place in 3.2.1

I'm not sure you've yet understood the problem, Keith. Here's an example with the system accent and highlight set to blue. The top image is with the left editor selected, and the bottom with the right editor selected. Clear as anything. Anyone who doesn't use Lock in Place will be intimately famili...

Re: [Scrivener 3.2.1] Check for Updates... is greyed out

Um... evidently that's because the "Check for Updates..." code was broken. It's one of the bug fixes in 3.2.2... :D That's not the case - there was a bug in 3.2 whereby the "Check for Updates" *options* were missing from the Preferences, but this didn't affect the "Check fo...

Re: Lock In Place in 3.2.1

This is an absolutely terrible decision from a usability and design perspective, imo. But hey ho, I can live without Lock in Place. It's a shame to lose it, but I can more quickly adjust to that than having the wrong editor window being highlighted as active. As you say, this is your opinion; I don...

Re: Transparency to blurred desktop in Scrivener?

There is not, I'm afraid. Transparency is only available in the sidebars of apps if those apps stick to some very specific rules - for instance, you cannot allow the user to choose the sidebar colour, as you can in Scrivener's preferences, because once you do that, there's no way of getting the tran...

Re: Crashing after paste and floating annotations

On the first issue, are you using page view in the editor? If so, there is a nasty crash that Apple introduced into page view with Big Sur - Scrivener 3.2.2, which was released earlier in the week, should (I hope!) work around this, so fingers crossed that it will indeed solve your problem. The PDF ...

Re: Renewed respect for Scrivener after really trying to move to Ulysses

Thanks all for the thoughtful comments and for the kind words about Scrivener's relative advantages (and for the insights into where you think Ulysses has the advantage). Some random comments: - Apps such as Ulysses have done a lot, I think, to show the advantages of a simple writing environment. It...

Re: Sometimes it's nice to say thank you

Many thanks for the kind words! My apologies for the late acknowledgement, too - I was busy getting 3.2.2 ready for release before Christmas. I'm glad you're finding Scrivener useful.

Happy holidays,
Keith

Re: Lock In Place in 3.2.1

Disappointing. Scriv persons, might we have something good on this in 3.2.3? No, this won't be changing. The previous system of blue for focussed and pink for locked was never entirely satisfactory because you'd end up with a blue piece of UI when everything else conformed to the system tint colour...

Re: Big Scrivener Survey Results

Hi Skyler, I certainly intend to write a blog post going over the broad strokes of the results. I had hoped to do it this week, but it will most likely be the New Year now. We still have a lot of work to do drilling down into the results, in fact - I expect that will take a long time (although we ca...

Re: Footnote Numbers Not Superscripted in .docx in 3.2.1

To whom it may concern-- I've been computing since 1983 or 1984. And I don't remember ever complaining like this. But I must say, it is absolutely RIDICULOUS and ASTONISHING that the version before 3.2.2 (3.2.1, I imagine) was released with this superscript problem or issue. It seems to me that thi...

Re: Scrivener crashes upon opening with OS 11.1 update

Forgot about that one. As I already said, normally there is an automatic update notice that is absolutely the best way to communicate updates; this is a unique situation with crashes preventing that from being effective and we only found out about 11.1 crashes yesterday. Since pushing out the update...

Re: Scrivener crashes upon opening with OS 11.1 update

Thank you! This resolved the issue. I wasn't aware there was a newer version available because it was "coming soon" on the last blog post by Literature and Latte and I didn't have any update requests/notifications from the app itself. Perhaps these things could be updated in the future? J...

Re: 3.1.5 for MacOS has binder with a strange area on Japanese language setting

Great, glad it's fixed now! This was a crazy bug that I still scratch my head over. I thought I had it fixed in 3.2, but didn't. It turns out that Apple's tool for creating UI files in other languages was corrupting the sizing in the Japanese UI file. I had to fix up the sizing in code, which seems ...
