Re: [JH] Can't get Chapter Autonumber Resetting (e.g. <$rst_chapter>) to work

Thanks, both! It's a big help to have the sample projects to work with. I've filed tickets for the issues of the <$rst_keyword> tag not working in ebooks, the Roman numerals using title case in the ebook auto-generated TOC, and the title case option resetting to normal. I still need to look into th...

Re: [JH] Can't get Chapter Autonumber Resetting (e.g. <$rst_chapter>) to work

Could you share a sample project with the $R placeholder coming out wrong? The capitalised Roman numerals are working fine in the title prefix of my test project, as I said earlier, and given all the possible combinations of settings, it would be helpful to have a specific project that is producing...

Re: [JH] Can't get Chapter Autonumber Resetting (e.g. <$rst_chapter>) to work

Thanks for the reply. I've attached the Demo Project. I also seperately attached the custom Format from "My Formats", in case the problems don't happen on your end, without it. I had to zip it so the forum would accept the upload. Issues that should show: 1. Reset not working (Chapter Sect...

Re: Ebook cover image not working for ebooks

Andy, I've had the same problem: "First Image in Front Matter Folder" doesn't seem to work properly. I had the same error on Compiling a MOBI, until I tried the below. Does it work for you if, before you hit the Compile button, you choose the Cover manually from: The 5th (of 6) buttons on ...

If you can point me to a description of how I can Attach a Project file, I can include one.
It's just a trimmed-down, Lorem Ipsum demo project, that shows the problems that are occuring.

Re: [JH] Can't get Chapter Autonumber Resetting (e.g. <$rst_chapter>) to work

Jennifer, thanks for the reply. When I say “Parent”, I just mean that the “Chapters” are correctly nested within the “Parts” (not for example, incorrectly placed the other way around) (see below). The file format you're compiling to might be a factor in this. Are you using PDF? an ebook format? DOCX...

Re: [RC7] alignment, text color, highlight options greyed out in Compile

I'm getting EXACTLY the same problem.
Everything Right of the Underline option is greyed out, and completely unselectable.

It happens every single time I try and use the compiler. I can change the other options, just not Alignment, Text Colour and Highlight Colour.

[LH4619|4620|4621] Can't get Chapter Autonumber Resetting (e.g. <$rst_chapter>) to work

So I tried this a few months ago, and again today, and couldn't get it to work. I want: PART Chapter 1 Chapter 2 PART Chapter 1... I should be able to do that by placing <$n:chapter> in the Title Prefix of Chapter Section Layout and <$rst_chapter> in the Title Prefix of Part Section Layout (which is...

Re: Images disappearing between Windows Beta and iOS

I can't help much, but I just want to add that I used to have this problem constantly for most of the last 12 months ago. It hasn't happened for me in the last month or two. I didn't do anything different; it just stopped happening. Clearly that doesn't help you much, but, just to let you know I had...

Re: [LH4466] List items indenting inconsistently from Beta to RC2. Video included.

Bullets are absolutely maddening. I mean, at times, they make me want to pull my hair out; it has been this way for months. They are easily the #1 annoyance for me. The problem I repeatedly have isn't even listed above (but the video of the problems the OP has illustrates perfectly how broken they a...

Re: Scrivener freezes opening folder *every time*

Thanks for the reply Katherine. Unfortunately I run Linux, so that wouldn't work for me. I've discovered, through massive trial and error, a temporary workaround since posting. If I select the Project with the iPad in Landscape mode the page loads. If I use Portrait mode it never loads. I've since d...

Re: Scrivener freezes opening folder *every time*

Any news on this? I really need to get access to the folder ASAP (the specific page within the folder I'm not bothered about). And, to reclarify, this is not a Dropbox Sync issue , like everyone else seems to be having: the folder is all local. In fact, all Projects I have are/were local. If it's th...

Scrivener freezes opening folder *every time*

New problem for me after months of no issues. I have a local project with 200-some smallish pages in it. Whenever I try and open that Project now, it automatically freezes trying to auto-open one of the pages within. The page seems to read 0 words (though I'm almost certain it's a non-empty page). S...

Re: Image size

Keith would it be possible to allow image resizing in the same way you can zoom? As it stands, if you zoom the view the image "enlarges" up to 1.5 zoom, whereby it's at a very respectable 80-90% of the screen width. I'd love to just be able to do that seperate "zoom" on images, w...

Re: Image 'softness'

To work around this, I scale all images inside the text view so that they have a maximum width of 600 points. This keeps typing fast. I wondered what was going on with images, and why larger, higher quality, images where being downsized and (seemingly) downgraded. It's the only thing I'm disappoint...
