Re: 7 Scriveners at once....how do you manage?

I use the Window/Merge All Windows feature, which opens each project in a separate tab. You can click the required tab (below the menu) or use keyboard commands to move through them (my preference). I generally work full screen, with the menu bar hidden, so the keyboard commands are quicker and easi...

Re: ?Bug - Typewriter scrolling still on, when zoomed to 110%, inspector sidebar closed

Following up. This problem just appeared while editing a ~3,000 document. So, I switched off "Fixed Width Editor" and it went away. It came back immediately I checked "Fixed Width Editor". Since I work in full screen, I can't adjust window size, however, I was working in vertical...

Re: ?Bug - Typewriter scrolling still on, when zoomed to 110%, inspector sidebar closed

Well I never. I see this too from time to time. It always happens with large documents (usually something imported). It also seems to randomly kick in at approximately 2,000 words in a doc. I use full screen mode, so I can't change the window size, but I'll try messing with "Fixed Width Editor&...

Re: Scapple crashing when zooming in/out

You might want to provide some basic diagnostics, such as: Scapple version and macOS version.

fwiw, it works fine here on v1.3.3 and macOS10.14.6 (also on an Air, as it happens).

Re: I guess Scrivner is way better on MAC

On a slight tangent: I bought one of the new Airs last November specifically for writing (with Scrivener, of course). It's pretty much perfect, if you want near iPad-portability with an inbuilt keyboard. The single finger-tap sign in means time to writing is literally one second. Add the in-built di...

Re: Passive Verbs?

There's nothing wrong with the passive voice in fiction. That first sentence is an example. As is that one. ... Orwell is often quoted in this context: ““Never use the passive where you can use the active.” (From his essay Politics and the English Language.) Rarely is the following paragraph attache...

Re: How do you use Label and Status fields?

Thanks Tribalrose . I too would love to be able to 'see' (color, background whatever) both the status and the label in the binder at the same time. But then again, I do want my cake and to eat it too! :D Anybody else? Yes, this would be great. Like others, I use Labels for character/story arcs, whi...

I'm in no way contradicting @brookter; but I have a different view. Note the semicolon between my clauses :-) I'd edit this as: "I’m on my way now," Lizzie said. "But make sure the door is locked and have your Beretta in hand ready to go." The two clauses in: "I’m on my way ...
