Re: Two Separate Organizations

This is an interesting one! The short answer is that there is no easy way right now, but that, after reading your question, I have updated the code so the there will be a technique that works for you in the next free update (which I hope to get out next week). Here's how it will work (you can set th...

Re: Scrivener 3 and MathType 7

I'm testing was on macOS 10.13. But I just tried on macOS 10.12.5 and that worked fine for me too. Strange. Although I cannot reproduce it myself, I have written to one of the people we liaise with at Design Science. I have no idea if he is still around given that they've been acquired, but I'll let...

Re: Full Screen - Jumps in text

On the first point, this would be expected behaviour (I'm not sure why that wouldn't be intuitive). If the right side of the screen is showing text below that on the left, then text inserted into the editor on the left, which will be above the viewable area on the right, will naturally push all othe...

Re: number symbol/pound symbol between paragraphs

This will be because you have chosen to compile using the "Manuscript (Courier)" format, which inserts hash symbols between scene breaks, as is the norm for standard manuscript format. To get rid of them, choose a different Compile Format, or set up your own. (See the section on Compile in...

Re: HTML contents list not appearing in compiled epub book

I've attached the edited project. And yes, you can just create a project template from it and your friend can then just import the project template and use that without having to do any of the above. I might actually use this for a future blog post on how to create a custom Compile format, in fact, ...

Re: Where are my old templates? And can I update them to work with Scrivener 3?

Did you buy either Scrivener 2 or Scrivener 3 from the Mac App Store by any chance? If so, because of the way the Mac App Store's sandboxing partitions things, Scrivener 3 will not be able to see Scrivener 2's project templates. However, if you bought both from our own store, Scrivener 2's project t...

Re: "Do not count spaces in character counts" for live character count

There's no way to see it live, I'm afraid, because it requires a calculation (making a copy of the entire text, removing all the spaces, and then counting the remains characters), so it's not the sort of thing I like to do while the user is typing. However, you can get this count easily enough by si...

Re: Scrivener 3 and MathType 7

Interestingly, for me, MathType 7 worked fine and saved the equation into Scrivener. But I was going to try exactly what Scrivener did - testing it with Pages and any other apps that support it. It definitely sounds as though you want to get in touch with Design Science - or WIRIS, in fact, as it se...

Re: Full Screen - Jumps in text

Hi,

Are there any specific steps we can take to reproduce the issue? I tried loading scrivenings in full screen and typing for a while, in different places, but haven't seen anything like this yet.

Thanks and all the best,
Keith

Re: Word count at cursor

Hi Tom, You can actually already do this as follows: 1. With no text selected, Ctrl-click at the location you want to count up to. 2. In the contextual menu that opens, look in "Writing Tools". You will see the word count up to the place you Ctrl-clicked there (or it shows the word count o...

Re: Numbers showing up next to my Chapter headings when I've compiled mobi file

Did you type "Prologue" in the editor? If so, I wonder if it has some list formatting associated with it. Try this: - Select the entire "Prologue" paragraph in the editor and go to Format > Lists and choose "None" (was something else ticked in there?) Then try compiling...

Re: HTML contents list not appearing in compiled epub book

1. I explained this above - copy the documents in the binder and copy into the editor to create the linked list. 2. A "section break" is what a "page break" is called for ebooks. You will need to assign a Section Layout that has its "Separator before" set to "Secti...

Re: Numbers showing up next to my Chapter headings when I've compiled mobi file

Would it be possible to zip up and post a sample project showing the issue using "Attachments" beneath the reply box? I assure I didn't spend the three years it took to create Scrivener 3 trying to make it harder. :) Compile was rebuilt to make it more flexible and less depending on hierar...

Re: HTML contents list not appearing in compiled epub book

It's a little difficult to say what is going on without seeing the project. One thing I would note, though, Copy Documents as ToC is not really what you want. That creates a list of documents with page numbers which is for use with all other formats. Ebooks are a bit of a special case in that they d...

Re: Most Recent Backups

No, there is no risk of losing backups for other projects, because the number you specify is per-project - that is, if you set the limit as 5, then Scrivener will keep the 5 most recent projects for each project, not 5 backups in total. Scrivener 3 does have the ability to choose different backup fo...
