Re: Permanent loss of work on freeze crash

Talentedc, Sorry to hear about your crash and the ensuing issues. Try to find the backup that Scrivener created when you first converted the v1.9 project to v3.0. It would be a folder with the name of your project, with 'Backup' appended. So MyProject.scriv would become MyProject Backup.scriv. Scriv...

Re: Zoom on Copyholder?

It turns out that it depends on how you open the copyholder window. If you do a "right-hand click" on file, open as copyholder, then the zoom option seems work. However, if you do the "Alt+Click+Drag" method, which developers of Scirvener 3 told me to use in a different post, th...

Re: Windows 2.9.9.9 HiDPI - Spelling Check Squiggly Hard to See

I'm using the now-released Windows 3 Scrivener, and would really like to use a dark theme like Mellow Yellow. But the spelling underlining is almost impossible to see, despite following the advice on Waves, 1080p resolution, and Coloring Textual Marks, and after meddling for an hour with Windows Co...

Re: Splitting the screen left and right AND in the middle

ETA: When you right-click on a Copyholder header bar, your placement choices depend on whether you are using single or split editor panes.. Placement choices are left, right, top, bottom when used with a single editor panel. Left, right when used with horizontally split editor panels. Top, bottom wh...

Bug: Copyholder doesn't remember Zoom level or position between sessions

Using Windows Scrivener v3.0, a Copyholder doesn't remember Zoom level or position between sessions. To replicate: Open a fresh copy of the Tutorial project. In the Binder, select document Splitting the Editor. In the Binder, alt-drag & drop document Editor View Modes to the Header Bar. Copyhold...

Re: Splitting the screen left and right AND in the middle

Yes, this could be done using split editor panels and Copyholders. When you right-click on a Copyholder header bar, you can choose how to place it (left, right, top, bottom). See the interactive Tutorial (Help > Interactive Tutorial) sections below for details. For splitting the editor: Draft > The ...

Re: *BUG* Project Search Not Working Right

On Mac, in the project search options menu way down at the bottom, there's a search option called "invert results ". Does Windows Scrivener 3 project search have this option? Just noting for posterity that, yes, Windows Scrivener 3 project search does have the "invert results" f...

Re: "Creating a backup"

I've noticed that whenever I close Scrivener for Windows, I get a little window that says "creating a backup", with a little progress bar that takes maybe 10 seconds to complete. Hi jianada, This is Scrivener's default auto-backup process. Go to File > Options > Backup (icon in the far up...

Re: Scrivener unable to save my project

This is likely due to your Antivirus program, as many other users have found.

As a test, disable your AV. If Scrivener runs normally, whitelist Scrivener in your AV.

Best,

Re: I'm running into this strange error on my copy of the new Scrivener

Anyone know what gives? Hi Xamusel, A number of posters have reported errors related to 'can't save file' with Windows v3, although yours is the first I can recall seeing that had to do with the compile process. For many of these posters, the error was due to their overactive, overachieving antivir...

Re: Zoom on Copyholder?

In addition to what Silverdragon said, if your mouse has a scroll wheel, click in any editor (main, quick ref, copyholder). Then hold down Ctrl and use scroll wheel to zoom in or out.

Re: Ways to make scrivener worth it?

I've only opened it twice As Katherine suggested, do the tutorial. That will help you process people's feedback to you here. I see Scrivener as a 'generalist' long form writing tool. What that means is, it's not developed to specialize in any one particular area, and so is used by all sorts of writ...

Re: Future of Scapple

Most programs don’t gave a backup feature and we live with that just fine. Put your own backup process in place. I only use software that has auto-backups, either to a NAS, or automatically to cloud. I write for a living, I will take no risks with my work. Your view is, at best, antiquated. Scriven...
