Re: working with styles in scratchpad

Hello, I configured by scratchpad as RTF, but can't find how to change font name, size, color, paragraphs, add lists , etc. I know that this is possible because if I copy paste any styled text from a Scrivener doc into the scratchpad , the scratchpad will adopt that style According to the Mac manua...

Re: can't get rid of space occupying blank areas in table cells

Katherine kindly provided the explanation when I contacted Scrivener support thank you Katherine Reproduced here with her permission I’ve been able to confirm the issue.

Re: can't get rid of space occupying blank areas in table cells

I I am surprised that nobody from Scrivener has replied. We do sleep occasionally. And sometimes take weekends off. My guess would be that the paragraph is formatted with a hanging indent. If that's not it, I'd need to look at the project directly. You can open a support ticket here: https://www.li...

Re: can't get rid of space occupying blank areas in table cells

My guess is that there are settings in the ruler that affects what is shown in the table image. It looks like the line is set not to start at zero and with an indention of following lines, like if you have bullet lists. I tested both and it's neither. I am surprised that nobody from Scrivener has r...

Re: how do you decide between using document bookmarks vs collections

That said, I use a simple method to avoid having to often remember to assign keywords. When I'm working and get to a place where I want to create a new text, instead of doing that I go to a text that's already categorised as I want that new text to be categorised, add a new line at the bottom, and ...

Re: how do you decide between using document bookmarks vs collections

I don't use keywords for much else other than characters and locations (though they're good for a lot of things), and I use this article as a guiding principal on how to use them so I don't get confusing results from searches: http://www.pigfender.com/index.php/2013/03/tracking-characters-with-scri...

Re: how do you decide between using document bookmarks vs collections

If you're trying to solve a need for your own process, you're going to have to provide more background about what you're trying to accomplish. Document bookmarks (and bookmarks in general) are very different beasts from collections. . A brilliant explanation and a delight to read. It's now crystal ...

Re: shortcuts to quickly navigate between Binder, Search Results and Collections

I often navigate between Binder, Search Results and Collections, and find it tedious to click on the tabs at the top of the binder. I was wondering if there are shortcuts to do so. Thank you ! There aren't any shortcuts by default, but you can create them easily enough, using the standard Mac Syste...

Re: can't get rid of space occupying blank areas in table cells

Tables aside, for my own education and to better understand formatting, I would like to know what causes that space and how to remove it. No indents, not tab: what creates that space ? As the other have said. Don’t waste your time on formatting complex tables in Scrivener’s editor. And adding to th...
