Re: Separating Binder, main and inspector windows with dual displays

Separating Binder, main and inspector windows with dual displays

I have a Mac using dual displays using "sidecar." Is there any way to separate out the Binder and Inspector windows and place them on one display and use the other display for the main text?

Re: Big Sur Beta Issue with Full Screen View

Thanks, Katherine. I always back up. Frequently. And in numerous places. Your advice is well – healed. I just thought while I was testing the OS I’d let you know. Keep up the great work at L & L.

Emphasis style not showing on upper toolbar

When writing in BBC script mode I'm able to highlight a word and then to to the style box, choose "emphasis" and make the text italic. That works fine, as it should, However I noticed that if I select or hover over the stylized word, the style box still says "no style." So I open...

Can I select non-contiguous text (paragraphs) in a script-formatted document?

Lost all my formatting (styles). Need to re-paste but hoping to save keystrokes.

Re: Scrivener and Scrivener 3 beta has bad touch experience for binder

Similar issue here. My project has a lot of scenes and with a slip of the finger, I can find one getting out of sequence easily. I have a feeling a lot of this is due to the touch screen on the Surface Pro (I have an older one) as well as the UI with Scrivener's skinny scroll bar. Even using an elec...

Re: Beta expiration: tonight or tomorrow night?

The betas run through the day listed, so Beta 6 doesn't expire until midnight August 1st. That said, Beta 7 is out. :) Where do I find it? Same link as the one I used to download this version? Thanks for all your hard work! Pam When I go to help>updates, I'm told to click the "Download Update&...

Character style issue in IOS

I am using a paragraph style (named Narrator ) in my story. When I need to use italics I then add the character style emphasis . My problem is that after adding the character style to a word and I then want to continue writing with non-italicized words, I cannot change the style to toggle off the em...

Problem duplicating index cards.

I want to duplicate text pages (index cards) and seem to have run into a snafu. In cork board view I select “Edit” then select the cards I want to duplicate and then cmd-option-D. Nothin’.
What am I missing?

Thanks, Brookter.
I feared it would come down to this. I'll look into keyboard maestro. Once upon a time among Word geeks I was the macro king. Gotta keep up.

Re: Search manually-applied italics with character style (ie: Emphasis)

EDIT: this is the process for the Mac V3. Not sure whether it's been implemented yet on the Windows Beta, but presumably it will eventually work the same way. Sorry if I've confused matters.... Set up your character style first (eg Emphasis). Then go to some text with the standard Italics, and sele...

Search manually-applied italics with character style (ie: Emphasis)

I've been applying italics manually to words in my manuscript but I've learned from e-book producers that the proper way to do this would be to use character STYLES instead. This makes perfect sense. Problem is, Although Scrivener allows me to search for italicised characters or words in a project o...
