Re: Faded images during compile in 3.0.3

Could you please attach a (zipped) sample project that demonstrates the issue? Images were fixed so that they no longer fade on save and load in the editor, but I'm not aware of any issues with faded images in Compile. I cannot reproduce the issue just yet so a sample project would be very helpful. ...

Re: No Undo for Folder Moves

Yes, undo is available for moves in the binder in some circumstances, but as soon as text gets loaded in the editor, the undo stack for the binder is reset. The problem is just the complexity of the undo stack between the various UI elements. If undo isn't reset, the user might be working in the edi...

Re: Compiling: Header

The problem with the page numbering starting at "1" on the second page is just an oversight I made when setting the templates up. All built-in templates are set up by me in exactly the same way a user would create them. I forgot to tick "Count first pages" and missed the issue wh...

Re: Footnotes numbers in the inspector

Thanks for the project. I've found the problem, and there is indeed a bug here. To keep memory use down to a minimum, Scrivener only temporarily opens in memory all of the text documents being compiled, and then closes them again if they have not been used during the session. However, in this case, ...

Re: Controling emoji size in compile

On thing you could do is use a character style for emojis: 1. Select an emoji in the editor. 2. Go to Format > Style > New Style from Selection... 3. Name the style "Emoji", choose to save character attributes only, and only tick "Include font size". Use the "Emoji" sty...

Re: Footnotes numbers in the inspector

Actually no, you're right: in previous projects (written with S3), the numbers are there. Interesting. Would it be possible to zip up and send us the project to see what is going on (to Mac.support AT literatureandlatte.com)? Please reply here after you have sent it if so, so that I know to look fo...

Re: How to change default table font?

This is an annoying bug in Apple's text system. It only occurs when you create a table at the very start of an empty document. There are different workarounds you can use: 1. Hit return, then create the table and start working in it, and then select and copy the table, select all, and replace everyt...

Re: Footnotes numbering

Ah, okay, I see what you mean - Scrivener doesn't currently have an option for restarting footnote numbering with each section for Word and RTF formats. I have added that for 3.0.4.

All the best,

Re: Character and Location tracking in Scenes

This is a very old thread. :) Custom metadata certainly is something you can use for a novel - it's just a way of you creating any extra information you need to keep track of. In Scrivener 3, the new bookmarks feature makes it very easy to look at character or location sheets right in the Inspector,...

Re: Footnotes numbers in the inspector

Very strange - I cannot reproduce this, as the footnote numbers are appearing fine for me. Do you see the same problem in all projects or only in one?

Re: Image shows up ok in PDF output, but it's missing in mobi3 and epub output.

Great, thanks for sending that. It turns out that there is a bug in Scrivener that breaks images with captions if the caption contains a colour. In your case, part of the caption is set to use black text (whereas the rest of the caption is set to have no colour, which looks the same as black text bu...

Re: Line Spacing for Screenplay / Script

The best way of reducing line height/leading is as follows: 1. Go to Format > Scriptwriting > Script Settings... 2. Select an element on the left. 3. Click on the "Paragraph" tab. 4. Click on the small "Options..." button. 5. Adjust the "Fixed line height" option. 6. Re...

No, name lists are not part of the Preferences - only what you see in the Preferences panel are part of the preferences file.
