Re: Scratch Pad

Good morning, Since you asked, I can replicate in my fiction theme manuscript. I cannot replicate using the interactive tutorial. In both I have a document open in Scrivener and the scratchpad open highlighted a portion of text and drag to the scratchpad with both the fiction manuscript andthe Inte...

Re: Problems with Margins/Ruler in Screenplay template

Hmm. This is a styles problem. Per https://screenwriting.io/what-is-standard-screenplay-format/ , speaker names should be 2.2 inches from margin, dialog 1" from margin, margin should be 1.5 from left (which means the Compile settings need to be adjusted; the default from Screenplay is 1 on all ...

Re: [Beta 18] Font problem with iOS version (Bug?)

(Note, however, that you can specify project-level default formatting, which will override the Scrivener-wide defaults.) Thanks for the clarification, Katherine. Please could you point me to where I set project-level default formatting? Thanks Project -> Project Settings -> Formatting. Click the ch...

Re: Scratch Pad

Also could not duplicate this. Some special condition, maybe? Was the text imported from 1.9.x?

Re: [LH2534] Are styles exported to .DOCX yet?

RussWhaley wrote:Confirmed. I just spent about 30 minutes trying to get either Scrivener to export the style definitions OR Word detect them, no joy.

I can't tell if it's Scrivener not sending the data or Word not detecting them.


The first, I'm pretty sure. Scrivener outputs the formatting, not the style name.

Re: [Beta 18] Font problem with iOS version (Bug?)

My understanding (from comments posted elsewhere on these forums, e.g. https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=57483 ) was that the text defined using "Options | Editing | Formatting" isn't a style. However, if that is right then the text ought to appear in the s...

Re: epub2 missing

As for Calibre, I don't see a way to do 3->2. Open Calibre. Select the doc to be converted. Convert, Convert Individually (bulk convert will work too, with one change) Epub output (nearly the last item down the left side of the page)(if you use bulk convert, this is the last item down the left side...

[LH3700 | LH2698] Custom Metadata DATE

The date in the date entry field is presented as mm/dd/yy, no matter what format we selected in the Custom date formatting field. And... editing the date manually is somewhat difficult. I right-click, get the edit field -- then I have to select each piece of the date separately; I cannot enter 01/01...

Re: Crash. Don't do this...

On further investigation, this is a general bug (or at least a problem; it might be a "bug" per se ), not just affecting conversions. When you use the Open Project function and have the "exploration" window open, if you try to open a project using File Explorer (or an equivalent)...

Re: Crash. Don't do this...

Hi rwfranz, I am not able to replicate this on my machine, so there may be extra circumstances not listed in your steps. Does this issue persist after a computer restart? Haven't checked yet. Maybe. Also, do you have 1.9 installed on this computer? No. It was at one point, though. Any other informa...

Re: Beta not reverse-compatible with Scrivener 1 for windows?

While I know it's my fault for not digging deeper, is there really not any way to open a Scrivener 3 file in Scrivener 1, besides copy/pasting nearly 100k words? For now, I'm just dealing with the bugs, but it would be nice to go back. No and yes. No, it won't export to v1.9 (likely will at release...

[LH3685] Crash. Don't do this...

I managed to crash Scrivener, and I can duplicate it. This involves a conversion from Scriv 1.9.x to 2.9.x. 1. Open Scrivener. 2. Use File Explorer (or some equivalent; I used MultiCommander, and then duplicated this with File Explorer, just to make sure it wasn't the File Management software causin...

Re: Preferences, saving, loading, etc

Either that option was not saved, or it was not loaded. Does this only occur for you when upgrading to a new version? This was the only time it has happened. Usually, immediately after an upgrade, I load my old .prefs file and apply. Are you able to correctly save and load your preferences otherwis...
