No keyboard shortcut options for links

Adding a hyperlink to text is an extremely common editing task and can be achieved from the edit menu under "Add Link." HOWEVER, there is no option to apply a keyboard shortcut for this oft-used function under "File/options/keyboard." Also, there is no option to add this function...

Customize Toolbars Dialogue box formatting error

When attempting to Customize the Toolbar, the selector box in the dialogue labeled, "Format Toolbar" is too short to display the list options. (see attached image) Also, none of the boxes within this dialogue are resizable, even thought the dialogue box itself is.

Re: Expirations on Beta versions

I find the attitudes of some of the writers on this site to be both fascinating and flabbergasting. I would assume that as purveyors of the written word, we'd all have a better appreciation and understanding of digital products, but maybe not. Perhaps because I'm a professional author and have also ...

Possibility of circular reference

I spent several hours today crosslinking bookmarks in a project between research files and chapter files. I had the editors split, so I could find one file in the lower editor, then bookmark it to the file in the upper editor. That's when I started to notice a significant slowdown in Scrivener, to t...

Re: Narrative outlines and Scrivener

I am curious about two things regarding your use of narrative outlines. 1) Besides being something you set alongside the chapter you are working on, does that narrative outline literally get turned into chapter text. That is, would you be pasting that text into your working document and working you...

Re: Narrative outlines and Scrivener

Katherine, appreciate the heads up, but I might point out that this new "method" of working is only viable and convenient in 3.0, which is why i didn't manage to figure it out in 1.9. That's why I posted it in the 3.0 forum. That said, it isn't really a bug report, so I agree with your dec...

Re: Beta 21: Operational questions

On further research, I may have answered my own questions. There is an excellent gem of information in the new tutorial that may provide the solution to my conundrum. (and potentially others) I highly recommend everyone read the section entitled: "Multiple Books in One Project." This provi...

Narrative outlines and Scrivener

I know we're trying to focus on final bug lists for the release but I have an operational question that I hope won't be too hard to answer. I'm totally excited by the new version and have actively converted a current novel project for Macmillan to 3.0, that is due for deadline, and I'm glad I did, b...

Cursor formatting drives me insane!

One quirk of Scrivener that drives me insane all the time is that the font formatting at the cursor inherits whatever was the last formatting done on the text. For instance: If I'm typing and finish a paragraph by inserting a superscript or a hyperlink, then hit enter to start a new paragraph, the c...

Re: Question about Scrivener 3

Thanks! Any little visual change will help! Can special icons be assigned by outline level, or do they have to be changed manually?

Great idea to allow a change in indent spacing.

Don't know how I missed the font size option for the binder! That's a huge help on smaller laptop screens.

Re: Question about Scrivener 3

Tribalrose, thanks for the reply. Yes, labels are available, as well as the (small) indenting. But at least on the old windows version, everything was so small that it's hard to easily scan down a binder list that is all the same font size, and the indents are so small, it's still hard to scan easil...

Question about Scrivener 3

Negotiating the binder in Windows can be a challenge when you have a lot of outline elements. Currently, in Windows, all levels of the outline in the binder have identical formatting. In the new 3.0, will there be a way to format binder titles with different font sizes, colors, etc. like one will be...

For those of you wanting free upgrades . . .

Let me start first by saying that I'm definitely no shill for L&L. I've been critical of them in the past when they've been overly cautious or non-informative to customers who depend on their software to make a living. (I'm a published author) But for those of you complaining about paying for ma...

HUGE Kudos to the Scrivener Team!

Let me say how pleased I am that the Windows team has chosen to make a beta version available for Scrivener 3.0 at the time of release of the new Mac version! This is an act of genius! Far too often, developers hide away in their closets building their "dream" software, only to find, on re...
