Spellchecker Request

It would save some editing time if Scrivener's spellchecker had the option of checking only highlighted text similar to the way Microsoft Word's spellchecker functions. I would also like the option of "ignore all," the default being to ignore only one occurrence of a spelling not found in ...

Re: 035 Lags When Typing

Tested NaNoWriMo version (045) on:
HP dc5859
AMD Athlon Dual Core Processor 5000B
2.59 GHz, 1.75 GB RAM
Running XP Pro SP3

Full screen mode is very slow on this machine, however, in binder/document mode the text document fields have no discernible lag.

Hope this info helps.

Re: 035 Lags When Typing

(Build 049) Typing in full screen mode raises Scrivener.exe CPU usage to 97% when quickly typing, which renders full screen unusable due to lag. In binder view, with cursor in the document text field and holding down any key for infinite repeat increases Scrivener's CPU usage to 94%. Normal typing ...

Re: 9th APRIL - LEE'S UPDATE - BETA 022 RELEASED

Thanks, Lee!

2. Performance - binder performance in general should be between 500-1000% faster than previous.


Binder is MUCH faster. It's now handling a 115,000-word document without trouble.

What a great start to the weekend.

Re: Missing Words from document [BUG LOGGED]

I've also experienced missing text after using the "Split with Selection as Title" command. 1. Under XP, using an rtf file created in Word 2007, I copied text from Word 2007 and pasted text into Note Pad. 2. I then copied and pasted that text from Note Pad to an open Scrivener text file. (...

Re: Windows Version?

Ioa, Thanks for posting the information regarding v. 2 of Scrivener. It's very encouraging to learn v. 2 should continue to run on older Macs. I forgot to include my 400 MHz G3 Pismo laptop running 10.4 (connected to an external monitor) to list of Macs I've successfully run Scrivener on. ("Suc...

Re: Windows Version?

Keith, You can tell us. We won't tell anyone. Gingerthreads, I'm running Scrivener on two G4 400 MHz PowerPCs and an iMac5,1 under OS 10.4.11. Scrivener runs fine on the G4s though 10.4.11 tends to drag its feet. Anyway, you might be able to set up a Scrivener machine for fairly little money if you ...

Re: Folder chapter numbers workflow?

uyyy70, I hope my suggestions help your friend. Another thing to consider in binder view is adding the chapter number before each scene number: -Chapter 1 (folder) --Scene 1:1 --Scene 1:2 --Scene 1:3 -Chapter 2 (folder) --Scene 2:1 --Scene 2:2 Of course this adds time to organizing things, but it ca...

Re: The status of the next update and 2.0

Hello, Keith. Can you tell me what the minimum OS requirements will be for Scrivener v. 2.0? I'm currently running Scrivener on several older Macs (400 Mhz G4 towers & Pismo Powerbook) that are chugging along at 10.4.11. I'd like to start planing for a hardware upgrade if v. 2.0 requires one, th...
