Re: Which version to use?

Thank you, AmberV for that helpful reply. Just the perspective I was looking for. I think for now I'll stay with 1.8 for the projects that were last worked on in that version, with the exception of the one I've already opened in S3. It will make for an interesting reacquaintancing with Scrivener. Lo...

Re: Clarification on beta installation

Thank you for this clear and useful info. I'm wondering, what happens if the beta expires before I get a chance to update. Will I still be able to get into it to do an auto update?

What exactly happens when the beta expires?

tks

Which version to use?

Hello all. I last worked in Scrivener for Windows some years ago and now need to work with some projects created at that time. I was using version 1.8.6.0, registered. As I recall, there was a change made in the 1.9.x.x update that for some reason led me to hold off on updating, so I never got beyon...

Folder paths

I have a folder where I direct my backups. It is set in Options. After importing a compile setting, the next backups made will the saved to the CompileSettings folder, unless manually changed back to the preferred path, even though, in Options, the correct path is still indicated. I would report thi...

Installing 1.9

Can I install 1.9 in addition 1.8.6, rather than overwriting the current installation?

Any special precautions, other than the file format changes?

Thanks.

Compile options

Two compile options would be nice.

An option to automatically open the file upon completion.

When trying to compile to a filename that is currently open, the notification dialog should have a "retry" button that when clicked will proceed with the compile as is.

Re: Paragraph margins when pastting between Scrivener and Word

Thanks, David. Those are good suggestions, but solve the problem at the cost of losing all text (character) formatting, and also footnotes and annotations. Footnotes and annotations actually carry over very nicely between Scriv and Word, but they can't survive, in either direction, a "paste spe...

Paragraph margins when pastting between Scrivener and Word

Are there known page margin and/or tab settings that will let me paste from Scrivener, to Word, and back again, while retaining the same displayed paragraph width? I'm using Word 2007 on Windows 8.1. This is giving me no end of grief. Trying to describe what happens during the round trip is extremel...

Cancelling long multi loads

Would be good if there was a way to cancel the loading of a long multi, e.g., by pressing Esc. Even on a fast computer, a folder with many documents can take a long time to open, during which time Scrivener goes unresponsive. It usually manages to load the multi and return control, but it can take a...

Re: 1.8.9.1 Beta Released 15th Sept 2015

As noted earlier, we're hoping for a just a short beta run, so we may have the official 1.9 out before the 8 October date anyway. Wow! That constitutes a tidal wave of a leak from the normally tight lipped Scrivener insiders. :mrgreen: Had hoped for finally gaining implementation of the long awaite...

Re: 1.8.9.1 Beta Released 15th Sept 2015

In answer to the above, yes, the project format itself has been updated (the changes were fairly minor, nothing you’ll notice unless you go digging into XML files) and once you do that to a project, it won’t open in 1.8.6. Thanks for clarifying that. So then, some caution is in order. Are there any...

Re: Copying compiler settings

Thanks, MM. It's on the bottom of page 240, under Global Changes Re: resizable dialogs, I think resizability really should be the design default when dialogs are created. There will always been exceptions, but in principle, any multi-row dialog, especially when the line items have multiple fields or...

Copying compiler settings

The documentation says, about the Compiler Formatting settings: If you want to apply settings to only certain rows, you can use the standard Copy and Paste functions to copy settings from one row and paste them into another... But I don't see how this works. I highlight the row for Level 1, Ctrl-C, ...

Re: 1.8.9.1 Beta Released 15th Sept 2015

Hey congratulations on this! It has been eagerly awaited. :-) Sounds like there's some nice stuff in this. This leaves me confused: * Scrivener's file format has been updated. The .scriv file format has some minor changes, in preparation for syncing with the mobile version and for future updates. Up...
