Can I highlight all instances of a word in the text?

Hi,

I'm editing my manuscript and was wondering if I can highlight all instances of a chosen word to see where they're clustered together (as often happens).

Many thanks,
Ian

Re: Label and status text in the Outliner is now black in dark mode after Catalina update

Has anybody else found that they have this problem running Scrivener with a dark theme?

It would be great to find out if this is a bug that can be fixed in an update, or whether it's something specific to my system that I need to try and hunt down.

Many thanks,
Ian

Re: Label and status text in the Outliner is now black in dark mode after Catalina update

Try applying a different theme, and switching to light mode and back. If that doesn't work then try this:


Thanks for the advice and the link.

The problem still occurs in all dark themes and the default Mac dark theme.

Resetting the display settings didn't work either.

All the best,
Ian

Label and status text in the Outliner is now black in dark mode after Catalina update

Hi,

I just updated to Catalina (10.15.3) and the label text and status text in the outliner has turned black when using the dark theme.

Mismatched Quotation Mark Finder

Hi, I've just been proofing my latest novel and I was looking for a way to search for quotation mark errors (where I forgot to close them etc.) I couldn't find anything in Scrivener, but after a search on the web I found a wonderfully-useful tool that someone had created. Simply paste your text in a...

Re: Considering iOS for Scriv. How do YOU use it?

I doubt I'd do serious writing with an iPad (I have a Macbook for that), but I might want to use it to do some plotting, scene creation, note taking etc. It sounds like you have a similar reasoning to how I intended to use the iOS version. I did try to use iOS on my iPhone, for occasional reading, ...

Re: Revision Mode on iOS?

there is no way to "lock" a style, such that you can drop a cursor into something that's styled differently Yes, that is what I meant--I didn't think it was possible, but just thought I'd make sure! :) As for overriding styles in the compiler, what has to happen there is that you need to ...

Re: Revision Mode on iOS?

Thanks everyone for taking the time to reply. I guess the only downside then is having to select the particular 'revision' style for every correction when using iOS? I'm getting used to doing this routine, but--just to be sure--am I correct in thinking that there is no way to 'lock' the editor to a ...

Re: Revision Mode on iOS?

Here's how I simulated revisions in iOS recently: I've had a quick go now, and it does seem much easier to implement the changes with styles as you suggested - thanks! :) I can't see any real downside to working this way, other than the colours aren't part of the 'proper' revision mode--I'm hoping ...

Re: Revision Mode on iOS?

Here's how I simulated revisions in iOS recently: Thanks very much for the suggestion, I'll give that a go and see if it feels easier than just changing the text colour. At first I was put off by the idea of using styles, because I recently found I had been unable to override them in the compiler. ...

Re: Revision Mode on iOS?

Hi, At present, I'm trying to replicate the revision mode colours on iOS by just colouring text edit changes. But this means that every single time I want to make an edit I have to go into the text formatting options and change the colour manually - is there a better way of doing this? Does anyone k...

Re: iOS has no distraction-free composition mode?

What you are referring to as the "formatting controls/bottom menu bar" is actually called the Keyboard Row. Hi Jimrac, thanks for your post - I hadn't realised the correct name, which didn't really help my attempt at clarification! :lol: But when you say, "formatting controls (Keyboa...

Re: iOS has no distraction-free composition mode?

Hi, I found my way to this forum thread after I bought the Scrivener iOS app for my ancient iphone 4s. I thought it would be great to be able to read through my Scrivener projects on the phone (I work on a Macbook Air), and do the odd bit of simple editing. The first thing that I looked for was how ...

Re: Scrivener + Scapple ... writing and mapping on the same application

I'm just dipping my toe into the depths of Scrivener and Scapple, so I am finding features in both programs that are bringing them closer together. The Project Bookmark feature that shows a preview of a Scapple board is great for linking out of Scrivener, while being able to link from Scapple to ind...

'Zoom To Fit' doesn't zoom out enough for larger boards.

Hi, I just had a minor niggle as my Scapple boards have been growing larger, and I noticed that the View-->Zoom To Fit command has a limited zoom out, so once boards grow beyond a certain size the command doesn't display the board it in its entirety. The z command still shows the entire board, but t...
