Re: [RC8] Cannot change "Search text selected background"

Try adjusting the "Find Text Selection Text" and "Find Alternate Text Selection Background". These colors are used for the animation from the "Find" dialog. "Search Text Selection Background" is used for results from the search collection, when the document i...

Re: [RC6] Not possible to customise keyboard commands for "Insert" menu??

Start typing in the search field at the top to filter for a specific action name or description. Bibliography/Citations shortcut can be changed. Type "cita" in the top filter field and change the shortcut. The groups are still not reordered to match the GUI menu titles, but via filtering ...

Re: [RC6] Not possible to customise keyboard commands for "Insert" menu??

[RC8] HiDPI Just bumping this because the problem is still present. The "Insert" menu does not appear among the options for customising keyboard shortcuts (Options | Keyboard). Some of the commands relating to notes (e.g. Insert footnote, Shift-F5) are listed and can be changed, but the on...

[RC8] Cannot change "Search text selected background"

I wanted to change the highlight colour used when I search (the default is yellow, but I use that for notes to myself). So (with a little help from nice Scrivener users), I located the appropriate setting, which is under Options: Appearance: Composition Mode: Colors and is called "Search text s...

Re: Change search highlight colour (and note re. manual)

Belated thanks for helpful posts. Yes, "Search text selected background" is the setting I was looking for. Sadly, however, the setting does not work in [RC8] HiDPI -- I just changed the default yellow to green, hit apply, did a search -- yellow highlighting used. When I changed the setting...

[RC8] Bug not fixed -- Text editing shortcuts disabled or inconsistent in comments [4607]

Just tested this and the problem I reported earlier is still there. If you copy some text that you want to make into a comment, hit the Shift-F4 shortcut (new comment) you should be able to use Ctrl-Shift-V to paste and match style (so that you don't end up with random formatting in your comments), ...

Re: RC8 - Cannot open an existing project saved to a Dropbox synced folder

I have all my Scrivener projects in my Dropbox folder and have just updated to RC8 (HiDPI) — everything is opening without any problems, so the difficulties you’re reporting might be something to do with your setup. I’m no expert, but I would try the usual things (flushing the Dropbox cache, waiting...

Change search highlight colour (and note re. manual)

Hello everyone, I know there's a way to change the colour used to highlight search terms; I've used it in the past, but now I can't find it. I suspect I'm being more than usually dumb, but please could someone remind me where this setting is? Also, I tried looking it up in the manual and there doesn...

Re: [Beta 43] Whole word option doesn't work in Project Replace

I also just tested this in RC7 (hiDPI) and can confirm that it is definitely a bug; the "whole word" option makes no difference to the results.

Re: Befuddled with styles / Microsoft Word

Yes, that will work (I do it all the time). However, you need to create styles in Scrivener, apply them consistently and then map them to Word styles when you compile. The most annoying thing about Scrivener is the use of "no style" as the default. Word does not map paragraphs without a na...

Re: No Paste/Special Paste Option within a Footnote (with Inspector)

I have reported this too. Annoyingly, it's an old bug that had been fixed, but has mysteriously reappeared.

Just out of curiosity. I'm using the hiDPI version, so I'm wondering whether that's a factor. May I ask which version of RC7 you're using?

[LH4607][RC7] Keyboard shortcuts not working in Inspector (again)

This is the return of an old bug, which had been fixed several betas ago. Shortcuts such as paste and match formatting (Ctrl-Shift-V) and italicise (Ctrl-I) are not working in Inspector comments or footnotes. I reported this for a much earlier beta, and it was fixed, but now it's back. (I'm using th...

Re: Autocorrect | substitutions

I just tested this, by adding the substitution "thoery" => "theory". Then click "OK", then "Apply", then OK again (to close the dialogue box) -- it worked immediately, with no need to restart. However, I have noticed that this doesn't always happen, although I...

Re: [LH4602] Problem installing 2.9.9.7 (64-bit HiDPI) on windows

I have the RC7 version of HiDPI (64-bit) installed and running fine. Don't know if this is relevant, but I don't have any other version(s) of Scrivener installed (you definitely can't have two versions of RC7, i.e. the hi- and regular-DPI versions, installed together).
