Re: Quick Look Sometimes Fails

Note that in some situations, the problematic map displays fine:

Quick Look Sometimes Fails

I'm finding that the Quick Look function sometimes fails to display a map properly. With one such map, I dragged and dropped its contents to a new map, with the following result (the copy displays fine, the original does not): Screen Shot 2021-01-17 at 7.56.26 AM.jpg If you know what's wrong with th...

Re: Scapple Mind Map Formatting Bad in Scrivener

Mentioning up front that the same problem appears in Scapple itself would have been helpful. Katherine I didn't realize that until after I started this thread, when I started debugging it. That is, I wanted to see why some maps displayed okay, and when I dragged something from a known bad map to a ...

Good catch. Yes, I think that explains the second instance, and it might be something similar that explains the first.

Re: Scapple Mind Map Formatting Bad in Scrivener

Feel free to move this to the Scapple forum. Mac, Scriv, Scap versions: 11.1, 3.2.2, 1.4. I don't want to sound confrontational, but: 1. Like the resolved problem with the jagged or cloud Scapple notes, you do have control over how Mac displays your maps. 2. This happens within Scapple also. If you ...

Re: Show/Hide Ruler Problems

Pretty sure that wasn't it. This can also happen:

That is, "Show Ruler" is both grayed out and inappropriate. That can happen even if it isn't the same doc in both windows.

Scapple Mind Map Formatting Bad in Scrivener

When I move a Scapple mind map into Scrivener, as described in section 9.5.4 of the Scapple manual, this is the result: Screen Shot 2021-01-11 at 7.27.51 AM.jpg I don't remember that being a problem in the past. Is there a way to make this work?? Thanks, Al PS When I move old maps into Scrivener, th...

Show/Hide Ruler Problems

I'm posting this to make sure you're aware of a problem with the "Show Ruler" menu item: Screen Shot 2021-01-08 at 1.28.57 PM.jpg Note that the ruler is visible, yet "Show Ruler" appears on the menu. Selecting it will hide the ruler. It can also happen that the Hide Ruler option ...

Re: Title Bar Often Not Distinguishable

I've got a kludgy workaround. See the note called "Fix Title Bar"?

I can zoom such that it is above the window border, resulting in a distinguishable title bar:

Title Bar Often Not Distinguishable

Sometimes there's a thin line between the title bar and the background: Screen Shot 2021-01-05 at 7.26.20 AM.jpg Most times there is none: Screen Shot 2021-01-05 at 7.26.34 AM.jpg This is a small problem when moving or selecting notes near the top—I sometimes end up moving the window by mistake.

What can I say? I thought it was an error. Not rude to pass that on.

Re: Tried New Theme, Now Can't Go Back

Well that's weird. I was working on something else, and now my original color scheme has been restored. No idea how that happened. Note that Appearance options are in several different places: Scrivener/Appearance, Scrivener/Preferences/Appearance, Scrivener/Theme, plus: Screen Shot 2020-12-06 at 8....

An Easy Way to Reduce Support Requests

I suggest that in the future you make sure that every menu option has corresponding text in the manual, allowing the user to search for something he's curious about. For example, if I search for "Reveal draft folder" in the PDF manual, I find the info I need. But if I search for "Impo...

Tried New Theme, Now Can't Go Back

Was just curious about themes, and I selected one. Now, I have been unable to go back to what I had. Is there a way to do that?
