Re: [BB] Project Targets / Session Target not working

I played around with the options on the Project Targets
If I have count current compile group only checked then it shows zero, no matter if I add or subtract.
unchecking this box seems to make everything work ok.

Re: [BB] Project Targets / Session Target not working

I have the same issue.
session targets are showing zero. the overall target seems to work and the document target works.
but not sessions, so i can't see how much ve written at a time.
It's one of the features I use the most.

Re: Install and run issues 2.9.0.2 (64-bit)

I unplugged that drive and scrivener works just as fast as before. Problem: what changed between the 2 betas...

Install and run issues 2.9.0.2 (64-bit) SOLVED- see last post

I had few issues with the first beta, but nothing major. 2.9.0.2 (64-bit) is totally unusable to me. 1) the installer freezes at" installing uninstaller 75%" 2) it runs so slow as to be unusable. It will eventually open my scriv file but it takes 20+ minutes. once it's open anything I try ...

[LH2741] Can not have 2 document windows open and work.

I have 2 document windows open often (one with notes or a character list). With the new beta, I can only see the first thing that opens. Selecting another text section from the binder does nothing.

If I go back to 1 document window it all works as it should.

I am trying to compile a short story into a word .doc file for sending to a beta reader. I have two text sections in the compile. I used Times New Roman 12pt font and double spaced for both text sections. When I compile it the first section has single spacing and the font is different. I'm not sure ...

Working on Mac AND Windows???

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this. I've googled and searched but haven't found any examples. I just inherited an old iMac from a family member and was thinking of setting it up for my kids. I didn't think it could be updated from 10.6.8. well I found out I could update it to Yosemite and...

can't keep a section centered when compiling

On the first page of my book I have just two lines with a setting and date I want centered. So far the ONLY thing that keeps is centered is checking "as is". From what I've been reading I shouldn't have to do that. Because when I use the as is function all the text on that page renders in ...
