Function of page up/page dn in scrivenings mode

[RC7] I'm having trouble understanding the navigation keys in composition mode, using scrivenings. Obviously this is the mode one would want to use to most closely approximate the behavior of a word processor, where only the text of the document is showing, and the reader is reading and editing the ...

Re: [RC6] Command line window opens on start

Aha! That was it. That's what I get for going through the options and trying stuff without knowing their purpose. :shock:

That option is quite useful, however. Glad I found it. Interesting stuff in that console.

Thanks for the heads up.

[NB] [RC6] Command line window opens on start

Since updating to RC6, whenever I start Scrivener, a windows command window opens and runs code. The actual program will run, but the command window will not go away. If I close it, the Scrivener program closes along with it. I've tried reinstalling from the 64 bit code online, to no avail. What's h...

HELP! How to size chapters?

I'm currently using the Beta Six of Scrivener for Windows and I love it, with some caveats. I've got two main problems with Scrivener that limits its functionality. Problem #1: Synopsis. The synopsis window is very limited. What we really need is a full editor window for synopses that will allow us ...

[RC 6] Incorrect word count

When compiling a document, I have defined folders to supply only their title, not their text. Files supply both. The compiled document correctly displays, showing only the title from the Folder (Chapter Heading) but the text and title from the Files. (Scenes) The word count variable, however, counts...

Re: Names Generator "Starts With" applies to both Surname and Forename

Hmmm. I'm not having that problem. What version of Scrivener are you using? I'm on the latest, 2.9.9.5.

Re: 2.9.9.4: Bookmarks viewing pane breaks on multiple links

Now that I have expressed the need for bookmarking to work properly from a writer's perspective, I thought it might be good to reference the problem from a programmer's perspective. (since I'm an old grizzled programmer) I'm hoping I'm wrong, but I suspect this bookmark limitation is a result of ina...

Re: 2.9.9.4: Bookmarks viewing pane breaks on multiple links

Now that (I hope) I've spelled out the specifics of the programming anomaly, let me emphasize why correcting this behavior is so important. Let's assume you are George R. R. Martin, and you are writing Game of Thrones . You have literally, HUNDREDS of characters that move in and out of your story. C...

Re: 2.9.9.4: Bookmarks viewing pane breaks on multiple links

. . . post continued. Once the same file or folder has been bookmarked in multiple other files, the behavior becomes inconsistent. The bookmark reading pane fails to display the contents of the bookmarked file, yet sometimes it does, (weird) I can reliably repair behavior by deleting the second refe...

Re: another super list of fixes

Well, guys, so far as you are so perfectly satisfied with the product, I am not sure why don't you consider purchase of the full version 2 for Windows right now, before the version 3 final release? It is $45, so by buying it, you will: (1) get your full license for Scrivener 3 beforehand; (2) expre...

[LH4527] 2.9.9.4: Bookmarks viewing pane breaks on multiple links

When I drag a bookmark from a prior file into the "inspector/bookmarks" section of a different file, the link shows at the top and the contents of the bookmark displays immediately below, in the bookmark viewing pane, as it should. However, if I link the same bookmark to another file, (mul...
