Thanks. If it's a waste of your time to re-report bugs that were first noted months ago, please say so. I just wanted to make sure that things like this didn't get forgotten in the final weeks of developing. Good luck getting it all done.

[LH1228] Small caps still really, really small

This has been reported before, but I just wanted to double-check that Sisyphus and the team still have it on their "to-do" list.

Formatting text as "small caps" produces this:

That's a bit too small, imho.

Autocorrect whole words only?

Being a lousy typist I make a lot of mistakes and love autocorrect. However, there's a minor problem with Scrivener's implementation (v.3, beta 18), which is that if an error occurs as part of a longer word, it gets corrected when the longer word is already correct. Specific example: I often type &q...

Re: [LH467|Suggestion] Beta 16: Small problems with footnotes

A quick update on previous comments (retesting with Beta 18). The problem of new notes/comments not being visible when you add a new one is still present. If there are lots of entries in the Inspector panel, it doesn't automatically scroll to show the new blank note. The problem with unformatted pas...

Thanks for the clarification, Katherine. Please could you point me to where I set project-level default formatting? Thanks

Re: [Beta 18] Font problem with iOS version (Bug?)

Thanks everyone for the info and clarification. Having learned my trade (so to speak) on Ventura Publisher and Ms Word, I find this weird and irrational -- I expect a separate "style sheet" to do all the formatting, not to have formatting embedded in the text. But, at least I know what's g...

[Beta 18] text reflows for no reason

I have noticed this regularly in various betas, but keep forgetting to report it. It's a really trivial flaw, but I find it oddly distracting. When you press [Enter] to create a new paragraph, the text in the previous paragraph (the one before the one you've just finished), reflows, which creates a ...

Re: Preferences, saving, loading, etc

I don't think that "no style" is meant to be saved with a specific style. This is why it is called "no style" :wink: I don't think that's correct. I may be wrong, but I believe that "no style" is what most programs would call the "default" style -- so it shou...

[Beta 18] Font problem with iOS version (Bug?)

I mainly use Scrivener on my Windows PC, but sometimes on my iPad. A few betas ago, I got fed up with the font changing everytime I moved from one platform to the other, because the iPad didn't have the same fonts as my PC. So, I switched the default editor formatting (the "No Style" style...

Re: Thanks for the update regarding release!

Please may I add my thanks to the Windows dev team for the ongoing hardwork? From the blog post, it sounds like a nightmarish task, but I'm 40,000 words into the next book with the beta and am finding it mostly very stable (and a lot easier to look at than 1.9). So, keep up the good work, thanks for...

[LH3459] B18: words ending in "s" marked as mis-spelt if followed by closing single quote mark

Hi, I have reported this before, but couldn't find the old thread and wanted to make sure this didn't get forgotten. As the title says, if you are using single quotes (e.g. for quotes within quotes) and the last word inside the quotes ends in s, (e.g. synthesis), the word will be underlined as mis-s...

Re: [Suggestion] Bundle default fonts on all platforms?

I suspect that would not be possible because Apple license some fonts for their operating systems and Microsoft license others for Windows. The only solution is to choose fonts (such as Times or Georgia) that are available on both systems.

Re: Scriv 3 beta runs super slow

Might help if you listed your actual PC specs and gave some details of your project (how many files, what kind of structure, is at an old I.9 project you have converted, or a brand new one, etc.?) I have no connection to L&L but I find the beta flies along pretty well on my pc (2-year old Core i...
