Re: Help! Downloaded update now Scrivener won't load

Can't believe this is still going on. Really, you shouldn't have to do this. It's like sticking elatoplasts on a gaping wound! Ask yourselves: do you have any font problems with any other software you use? Unless you have damaged font files it is unlikely there is such a thing as a BAD FONT on your ...

Re: unable to launch/uninstall Scrivener

Yes, the staff is usually quite responsive -- but not at the moment, when answers are needed is my point! Personally I don't use iOS. I paid for the Windows version. Holidays are nice, but others back home still need to work and most companies will plan for such things as that. This isn't the first ...

Re: What's in 1.9.5?

I read several of these posts across the forum over the last few days since the update rolled out. But I am yet to see a single reply from the twelve moderators or techs. I used to trust Scrivener updates and installed them straightaway. But now, having experienced similar problems in the past, I ho...

Re: Scrivener Freezing After Every Few Words and Backspacing

Hi Jessica. I see you posted in Feb 2016. I am very surprised there are no replies from moderators re your problem. Did you manage to resolve by yourself? I too have had this problem for sometime, though not as severe as yours seems to be. I freeze for less than a minute (that severely hampers my fl...

Re: 1.9 update changed all text formatting

Aha I gotcha! That's great rdale, just what I needed. Once I got going with the shift-click in the binder (and got used to the scary 'batch conversion is destructive' message :wink: ) all done in no time. That's gonna be a big plus to my knowledge base going forward too, so BIG THANKS In first insta...

1.9 update changed all text formatting

Just updated to 1.9 after a laptop change. I managed to import an older project with little resistance, however since my preferred font is not in the font menu anymore, the update changed all formatting to Arial, the default 'new project' font. Any other software this would be easily rectified by a ...

Re: Error trying to install v1.9.0.0

Hi MM Thanks for your helpful reply as always. Yes, this was from the auto updater. I'm currently deadlining for Xmas on a piece of major work and thinking of changing PC when that is complete. Obviously that will involve migrating to a more up to date OS (prob W10). Since this update looks like it ...

Right click - insert hyperlink

By highlighting text and right clicking I find I can only add Scrivener and document links. Really hoping you can add this useful shortcut for internet hyperlinks also.

Is there a keyboard shortcut for this? I'm yet to find it either.

Re: Shortcut to highlight text in full screen view

So used to using shortcuts I'd forgotten about the right-click!
Look forward to the update though
Thanks MM

Ctrl+Shift+H doesn't work in full screen view

I just posted a request for this in Wish List and then I couldn't help thinking I'm doing something wrong here. It just seems too obvious I suppose. The shortcut works in editor view but not full screen. Is that right team?

Shortcut to highlight text in full screen view

Ctrl+Shift+H doesn't work in full screen view!? I use full screen for getting down my first drafts and for reading through and marking up for revision. It keeps me away from the invaluable but rather distracting features in editor view. In both instances my 'flow' is severely hampered by not being a...
