Cnaging editor focus from one pane to another

OS 10.12.6 Editor window split. Document open in top, Portion of outliner in bottom. Focus is on a document synopsis in the lower pane, which is being edited. If I just click in the top pane, focus does not change to top pane if I click past the margin set for the text. There are only three ways to ...

minor interface change request

To me it seems more logical to put "Open Quick Reference" in the View menu. A quick reference is just that—not a major destination, but something you want to look at quickly while doing the major work. It's a side trip at best: "Did I have the Colonel killed with a candlestick or a fi...

Scrivener whitespace

Scrivener 3's general layout uses too much white space. The layout in S2 was more compact and still very clear and readable. Just my opinion, but I think it has reduced the functionality.

Editor whitespace

Opening a project in Scrivener 3, I notice the editor has enormous amounts of white space on either side of the text. Is there any way to utilize the entire, or at least most, of the pane? I could just select the text and set the margins wider, but I'm afraid that will ultimately screw up compiling....

Trial version vs. installed version—avoid overwrite?

I searched on this and found answers for previous versions. May I assume that the trial version of Scr. 3 will not overwrite my current installation?

Just being paranoid :roll:

Re: Using dictionary in outliner, or …

Yes, that works by invoking the Mac Spotlight search function, not the built-in Scrivener dictionary. I consider Spotlight to be a form of spyware, and avoid using it.

Using dictionary in outliner, or …

… when in outliner with Quick Reference window open. Yes, I searched. I write synopses in the outliner, with a QuickReference window of the document open. It would be great if I could use the dictionary/thesaurus under these conditions when I find a word I don't like, or think there is a better word...

Re: Who want a Linux release version?

Yes, even though I have a current Mac license. I am increasingly disgusted with the garbage Apple is putting out and calling an operating system, and will probably switch to Linux before I upchuck, err, upgrade … no I was right the first time … another CrApple OS. If there was a release version of S...

Re: Version 2.7 - The New Icons

While I have no issues with the new icons, I have with the content of my Editor window. But I fear there is very little L&L can do about it… Paolo :lol: A writer's life: "Staring for hours at a blank piece of paper (screen, these days) until drops of blood form on your forehead."—Theo...

Re: Version 2.7 - The New Icons

My 73-year-old post cataract surgery eyes wish I had the option to make the icons about 25% bigger. The screen fonts and icons on OS X tend to be on the small side for older eyes. I run the composition window at 175%, and an 18 point font in the binder. Why don't you just change the resolution of t...

Re: Version 2.7 - The New Icons

Our policy has always been to fit in with standard OS X icons - the previous set were based largely on the Pages '09 set. We don't remove functionality like Pages did, but we do try to be consistent with modern design standards - we've just been behind for a while. Okay, I'm a recovering materials ...

Re: Version 2.7 - The New Icons

In my opinion, the new icons as such are very well designed. But I think Triarius has a point when he says that the old icons were visually more clear than the new ones. That's something that seems difficult to deny. Most developers are (comparatively) young, and have sharp eyes. And they don't alw...

Re: Version 2.7 - The New Icons

It's not an oversight exactly, but it's a good point. The truth is, the past two years have been spent working on a much bigger update that still won't be ready for a little while, but in the meantime, 2.x was looking hoary on modern versions of OS X, so we decided to give it a bit of a facelift in...
