Trouble with indents and para format - Scriv 3

I am finding that some paragraphs lose the usual formatting - especially the hanging indent. They will all stick to the left margin. I have had some success with going through menus to increase indent, but this does not always work. Sometimes I will highlight two paras that need reformatting, but on...

Re: Three writing panes or at least a resize option for copyholders

Thanks, but these approaches create more problems than they solve. None of them suit the workflow established in the first two versions and are just fiddly, slow and annoying. I appreciate the effort, but the copyholders and quick reference windows do not work for me. I will have to continue to hope...

Three writing panes or at least a resize option for copyholders

I need to compare across multiple documents and ideally would like three writing panes. As an iMac user there is more than enough room for this. Having raised this previously and been told the designer(s) are not interested, I have tried using copyholders. This does not work for me. 1) I am used to ...

How to get word count for multiple text docs?

I want to get the collective word count from several text docs within a folder.

What is the quickest, easiest way to get this?

When I highlight several I do not see the collective word count appear anywhere.

Cannot update thru App Store after buying S3 update through L&L

After using S 2 for years I bought S 3 through the L&L website to get the upgrade discount. I had bought it through the App Store, assuming that the discount would be applied there. It was not, so I was refunded by Apple, and bought the upgrade through L&L. Now there is an update for S 3 ava...

Tables breaking up when hitting enter

Trying to use a table with three columns and four rows: When hitting enter in some table boxes the table gets broken up, instead of going to the next line in the box or putting in a space. Commonly, but not always, the box will get separated into a new box by itself. Sometimes hitting return in a bo...

Editor windows x 3 please

I bought S3 imagining there to be three editing windows, as opposed to just two in S2. But apparently this is not the case.

The copyholder function does not do what I need.

Please look at implementing three editing windows.

Thanks

How to open a project on a different computer?

I have begun a project on my laptop, and now wish to continue writing on my desktop, but cannot open the project from the cloud-stored backup. So, how can I open the project and work on my desktop? I would like to be able to work on either, depending on the situation, and go back and forth. Does Scr...

Page blanks out when zooming a PDF

When zooming in to make reading a PDF easier, the top 3/4 of the reading pane is blanked out in white.

If I select 'automatically resize' the entire pane is blanked out.

On mac the workaround is to use command and +

PDFs have no resize button as regular documents do.
