Re: Tables Are A Mess!

Could you briefly explain how I should get to the point of hearing these? I selected the text editor frame ( Control, Option, Command Down Arrow ) so that it would read the entire contents, and it skips over the separators (using Dashed Line anyway). Okay while I am using Tab to move the cursor fro...

Re: Tables Are A Mess!

Hmm, even the “Corners” option reads that way? It’s strange since the regular Edit ▸ Speech ▸  tool doesn’t actually read the separators aloud at all. It seems like Apple is using another approach, which I guess makes sense (difference between subtitles and closed caption). Here’s a question, if we...

Re: Tables Are A Mess!

Likely you need to tweak your Appearance: Scrivenings settings. It sounds like you are using ‘Bookish’ theme, which adds bullets to the text. Other separator styles are probably not spoken aloud. Ugh, the other options read as "unknown element". Strange, as I've never heard of an "un...

Re: Tables Are A Mess!

Do you get these same problems when turning Page View off? There are known issues with the table rendering code, when tall cells encounter page breaks. These are unfortunately bugs in the underlying Mac text engine, and can be reproduced with nothing more than TextEdit; they look a bit like what yo...

Re: Managing Multiple Stories in the Same Story Universe

I use the "multiple stories in one project" method. I have specific folders that I can reference to make sure that things are where they're supposed to be and so I stay on track. You just have to get on a path and stay on it, so to speak. I know that's vague, but flow develops the longer y...

Re: Beach Ball of Death when I click PDFs! ):

I have found that this is not a problem with Scrivener itself, but a problem with the PDFS and how the PDFS have been originally created and set up for display. I have a very large Scrivener file currently (it's sitting at around 37gig) and it's full of a lot of my research. A program that might int...

That sounds like it's not so much a bullet issue, but it's an overall formatting issue in turn affecting bulleting and indentation.

Tables Are A Mess!

Ugh! The coding for the tables is an absolute mess. Instead of making it so that whole rows get lowered to the next page when entering a large amount of text into one of the columns inside a specific row, Scrivener makes that one column within the specific row with a lot of text inside fill an entir...

Re: Disappearing Bullet Points After First Row

That happens to me sometimes, and what I usually do to fix it is, I re-select all the relevant text, set bullets to "none" and then go straight back into the bullet options and res-elect the one I wanted or had there originally. It usually fixes things, unless there's some weird formatting...

Re: Gibberish document

This looks like encoding for logical representations of sentences inside the document. What happens when you export the document and open it in another editor?

Table Issues

For some reason, and perhaps it's just whatever I'm doing wrong, tables have never worked well for me inside Scrivener, which has made me consider moving all of my templates/tables over to Evernote. Which complicates things for me a bit, as I'm now having to deal with multiple programs for one proje...

That's not a perfect solution, but it will work for now, I guess. Thank you.

Re: Regarding Labels

If you don't want any of your Labels color-coded, all you have to do is not enable Label color anywhere under the View menu > Use Label Color In. You can also choose to have it show some places and not others. If you mean you do have Label color enabled to show some places, but don't want it to sho...
