Apple New York Font for Scrivener?

Apologies in advance: I'm pig-ignorant about how fonts work, so this question may be really stupid. But in brief: Scrivener seems to have issues rendering New York, the native Apple font wch comes w/ the Mac OS. Although New York does appear in Scrivener's font-list, you can't make it italic or bold...

Re-installing an older version?

Apologies for the repetition: I realise I've already asked this question at the end of a bug-report — but it occurs to me you may only read those occasionally! Usually very upgrade-shy but I took the plunge and upgraded from 3.1.1 to 3.3.1 — and now regretting it! (Kept crashing on me...).. Wonderin...

Crash after Defining New Style from Selection

Just tried upgrading (against my better judgement — I'm generally very upgrade shy!) from 1.3.1 to 1.3.3. Alas, my bad karma with upgrades was immediately validated. I opened an old doc and tried defining New Style from Selection. Dialogue box seemed to work fine, but new style didn't show up in Ins...

Re: Boolean Searches? (Specifically the NOT operator)

... especially in projects where the Draft folder tends to get shuffled somewhere below Trash and forgotten. Oh how well you know me...(*grin*) Well, if the two horses are on the same boat… Hahaha. That would definitely lead to some tippy moments! Thank you for brightening my morning. I love these ...

Re: Boolean Searches? (Specifically the NOT operator)

Thank you for this very thorough reply! Invert Results is exactly what I'm looking for (ie a 'not' operator). I'm guessing this is a new feature in Scrivener v.3? Alas still conservatively clinging to v.2 until my current project is done with, on the Don't Rock the Boat Mid-Stream principle (or wait...

Boolean Searches? (Specifically the NOT operator)

Had a quick look for existing threads on this topic, but they seem to be extremely old (2006 eg), so posting the question afresh. Apologies if I've overlooked something recent! I'm looking for a way to do a keyword searches that delivers "Keyword1" AND NOT "Keyword2". For my work...

Re: Corkboard behavior

Just to say: THANK YOU Keith and Jennifer for this lucid and useful explanation — and for the superb software design that allows the user to do, as you say, everything that is ontologically possible (or anyway practicable). My questions answered, my problem solved. You guys rock.

Re: Dangerously easy to delete a keyword....

Hmmm. Same thing for me too — I'm just an idiot, I guess. Must have been wrong in thinking the keyword I deleted was still assigned to a bunch of things! (Can't go back and confirm this obviously, but clearly that must be what happened). So sorry to bother you! Feel free to delete this thread...

Dangerously easy to delete a keyword....

Small tweak this, but I'm wondering if you've considered adding a warning message when one attempts to delete a keyword ('Are you sure you want to delete this keyword and remove it from all the files it's attached to?). It's terrifyingly easy to click on the delete button by accident — and if one re...

Re: Live Preview and Print-Scaling bug

Oops, just saw your reply.... PDF does make sense, scaleable being the name of the game — I must steel myself to playing around w/Adobe which I have never really mastered (too many mysterious features!) and figure out how to resize and print from there. Or maybe for my simple purposes the screenshot...

Re: Live Preview and Print-Scaling bug

As for page composition, this is the sort of thing I would delegate to an illustration/image editing program. Export a PDF from Scapple, drop it into Illustrator and there you have everything you could possibly need to create precise layouts. Overall though that does sound like an awful lot of work...

Re: Live Preview and Print-Scaling bug

Hi! Adding my two cents here to say that Kithairon is not alone here. I used to use Scapple 1.2 on an older Mac OS (Snow Leopard actually), and I too relied on the scaling feature in the Print Dialog to fine-tune my layouts so my scapples would fit neatly onto multiple pages. Now I'm using 1.3 on Si...

Re: dragging from Binder to Editor changes (or doesn't!) doc being viewed???

Ha! Interesting.... That explains the variable behaviour I was getting before — must have depended on whether the dragged doc was already selected or not! Happily (if mysteriously to those of us pig-ignorant of whatever is going on beneath the hood of OSX), manually switching focus to the Binder fir...

Re: dragging from Binder to Editor changes (or doesn't!) doc being viewed???

Hmmm, looks like this is not an issue currently troubling anyone else : ) But on the off chance someone in future has the same puzzle, going to post my own answer here. I suspect my initial question was slightly mal posé; doesn't seem to be anything to do with settings. But I have solved my problem!...

dragging from Binder to Editor changes (or doesn't!) doc being viewed???

It's a stupid little thing, but I'm puzzled by a recent change in Binder Integration behaviour — and I can't work out what I've done to cause it! As it happens, the change is a huge IMPROVEMENT for me: fixed an annoying glitch that's bugged me for years. But I'd really like to know what I did. Now I...
