Re: UK English spell check does not appear to work in Beta 30

Apologies for the delay in getting back. Saw your reply only today. Thank you! I followed your instructions and it worked great. Btw, I did not see an option on SCOWL where I could, as you note, "choose the word frequency you want it to contain", Thanks yet again for your revert. It was mo...

UK English spell check does not appear to work in Beta 30

I have set the spell check option to automatically highlight spelling errors. Also, the dictionary has been set to English (United Kingdom-en-gb) under Options - Corrections. However, it fails to highlight words that may be correct in US English, but incorrect in UK English. For eg, organization, re...

Any plugin or script for automatically converting US English to UK English?

I am currently working on a project that involves editing over 20 press releases every day. Unfortunately, most of these are in US English while the client's website uses UK English.

Re: Word repetition detector

Even I am looking for a tool within Scrivener that will highlight word density and proximity/ spread -- how often I have repeated a word and how close the repeats are to each other. For example, in my case, I tend to use the word "also" a bit too often! So it would be most useful if Scrive...

Will there be a special price if you buy macOS + Win upgrades?

I currently use Scrivener on a Mac and couple of PCs. If I remember correctly, I had purchased the licenses as a bundle. Will that be an option for version 3.0? Instead of buying the Mac upgrade now and the Win one whenever it is released, I would rather wait and buy both as a bundle. Or even better...

Re: Word count for selected text?

Hello Krumbs. Select your text and then right mouse click with mouse pointer over the highlighted text and you will see the word count at the bottom of the right mouse menu. Good luck with your novel. Thanks! This takes care of my issue. And will certainly visit these parts to plug my novel, if and...

Word count for selected text?

Recently purchased Scrivener and hoping to switch over to it from Microsoft Word. Also hoping to write a great novel some day... but that is another story! :) Anyway, I write for newspapers, and an important feature for me is the ability to see the word count of a selected patch of text. In MS Word ...
