Re: Scratchpad doesn't allow me to input text

If you click on the Scratchpad window to make sure it has the focus, does the '+' icon work then? No, it doesn't work; it's grayed out Do you already have some notes, or is the Scratchpad currently blank? I have a document in a project with a scratchpad entry, but I have no scratchpad notes in the S...

Scratchpad doesn't allow me to input text

I use Shift+CMD+Enter to activate Scratchpad both within Scrivener and outside, but when the window appears, everything is grayed out, and I am unable to use the + sign to enter new text.

I've attached a screenshot.

Thanks.

Re: Upgrade to Catalina makes Scrivener believe I haven't purchased Scrivener

The first thing I'd try is upgrade to Scrivener 3.1.5. Specifically since the release notes for 3.1.4 include this note: Updated for macOS 10.15 Catalina compatibility. All users who intend to upgrade their OS are strongly encouraged to apply this upgrade. Great suggestion, Dirk, and I did it, but ...

Upgrade to Catalina makes Scrivener believe I haven't purchased Scrivener

Silly me, I upgraded to Mac Catalina. I'm running Scrivener 3.1.3. After upgrading to Catalina, when Scrivener loads, it shows the splash screen that says my Scrivener is unlicensed. When I choose ENTER LICENSE, it says I'm not using a license and asks me to either activate my copy or continue the t...

Re: How to enlarge editor page and get rid of color

Thanks for your suggestion, Silveerdragon. That setting was at 500. I changed it to 0, but nothing changed, either with current items or newly created ones.

It's interesting I make other modifications such as highlight color on current line and it doesn't accept it. Hmmmm.

How to enlarge editor page and get rid of color

Hi, Somehow I must have made this change in which my editor is NOT full-screen wide (or as wide as it will go) AND I have a vertical color band along each side of my text. (I've attached an image). Scrivener side margins.jpg I have looked extensively at preferences but cannot find how to modify it. ...

Re: quick look and index cards

@br, I love your answer and learned a better way, thanks.

Question though. I changed my preference so the space-key would open the document in a QR panel. However, some panels open up full screen and others open up in a smaller footprint. Can I control that behavior?

Thanks.

Re: quick look and index cards

If by index card, you're referring to the cards on the corkboard, you can hit the spacebar and the selected card (item) will open in the current editor.

You then use the back arrow in the editor header bar or CMD + [ to return to the screen with the corkboard.

Hi, I want to change the color of the area identified in the accompanying image, which is a text item. Can you tell me what it is and where in preferences I change it?

Re: Seeking Scrivener support?

Thanks for that anyway, Amber.

I was unaware that I could execute a "do over", but Oliver told me I could backgrade to 3.1.2. I did, and bingo, no more problems. Something in the upgrade to 3.1.3 made my system crash.
