Re: Clarification on beta installation

I currently have my licensed v1 installed under /programfiles(x86) and the beta installed in the 64bit /programfiles folder, but they both have the install folder named /scrivener ... your instructions say with the latest beta to install to /scrivener3 ( or something like that ), but given the fact...

Re: [Suggestion][Feature request] Automatic hyphenation

Hunspell? Used by LibreOffice for spelling, hyphenation, and some other stuff. Adobe InDesign CS6 also uses Hunspell hyphenation and spelling. Google Chrome; Mozilla Firefox; Adobe Illustrator; QuarkXpress; some others. Hunspell's official repository(ies), I think: https://github.com/hunspell/hyphen...

Re: Saved styles only save font size sometimes

Saved styles only save font size sometimes Set your style to font size 10. Load you project a day later use your style. Style now makes everything size 14. Like Amber, I'm wondering what you've done to create the problem, so I'm digressing a bit to discuss the normal ways this is done... There are ...

Re: [LH4619|4620|4621] Can't get Chapter Autonumber Resetting (e.g. <$rst_chapter>) to work

@rwfranz, thanks for the compile file; that solves it. The underscore is coming from your Text Section with Heading layout, which includes it as the section prefix. You can delete this from the Prefix tab to remove it, or add a carriage return after it if you had intended it to be there but on its ...

Re: [NB] Can I setup more than one instance of sync->external folder (feature request?)

Sync with external folder exports a flat list of files. The Export Files and Folders command replicates the Binder hierarchy, which means that in theory you could have a folder for Jim and a folder for Patty, and use operating system permissions to control access. The downside is that re-importing ...

Re: Way to see WYSIWYG when writing in script mode?

Thanks popcornflix -- I didn't know about WriterSolo. It looks great. Nice to know about the copy/paste compatibility! You would think that Scrivener could see you go into Script Mode and be like "I GOT THIS" and just make sure all the settings are standard and give you WYSIWYG. It could ...

Re: [JH] Can't get Chapter Autonumber Resetting (e.g. <$rst_chapter>) to work

Could you share a sample project with the $R placeholder coming out wrong? The capitalised Roman numerals are working fine in the title prefix of my test project, as I said earlier, and given all the possible combinations of settings, it would be helpful to have a specific project that is producing...

Re: Way to see WYSIWYG when writing in script mode?

The line spacing of 0.82 is because Scrivener (and most wp's these days) are not trying to emulate a typewriter except vaguely. Seems that word processors ignore the original 6 per inch line spacing, and choose 0.20, or 5 per inch line spacing. So to get 0.1666" line spacing (1/6 of an inch), y...

Re: [LH4032] Facing page header and footers do not work on .doc or .docx compile.

Both things - symmetrical margins and headers/footers - don't work on .odt compile as well. This means that the problem is upstream. As I recall, Scrivener uses "aspose" (external utility) for both these outputs, so it seems likely the issue is there. However, the problem could easily be ...

Re: changing a paragraph's font size changes the PREVIOUS paragraph too

As to selecting one para and changing an additional one, usually this happens when someone's used shift-enter instead of enter. Sounds like the user would know, though, because of showing nonprinting characters. The only way I've managed to include a pilcrow in a selection is to put a character (suc...

Re: Way to see WYSIWYG when writing in script mode?

All of these things are crucial. And although I can jump through repeated hoops of compilation, it would be a big opportunity for improvement to remove this slowdown. Screenwriters need this if this is to be the most efficient screenwriting tool. Or am I missing some combination of settings that wi...

Re: Can I setup more than one instance of sync->external folder (feature request?)

Is it possible to set up multiple instances of sync->external folder? E.g. I want to collaborate with two people, but want to control the files that each person can access. Not automatically. At least, not with Sync. However... You can do this manually with Sync. I have my main Sync folder set up a...

Re: [JH] Can't get Chapter Autonumber Resetting (e.g. <$rst_chapter>) to work

I'm not getting any Roman Numerals for <$R> (I should be, I think). Just ordinary "Arabic" numberals, when compiling to PDF or Epub2.[/quote] Correction: I'm getting something resembling lower-case roman numerals as long as I put the <$R> inline in the text. If I put the <$R> in the Prefix...

Re: [JH] Can't get Chapter Autonumber Resetting (e.g. <$rst_chapter>) to work

To the incorrectly mixed-case Roman numbering in the Title of Contents: despite setting it as $R (and even choosing "Uppercase" in both "Title Options" Case boxes) I only get mixed Case results, ala Iii, Iv, etc. I obviously should be getting III and IV. Notice this when generat...
