Re: Beta is quitting spontaneously when left alone for awhile

Oh, that's interesting. This is the windows beta, maybe it's in there and turned on by default. I'll check it out. .. You're right! It's in there and on by default for a 60-minute timeout. That seems like a bad idea to me, to be on by default. It seems like a bug. IMO this should be off by default f...

Beta is quitting spontaneously when left alone for awhile

Hi, I often keep Scrivener open for hours as a reference and note-taking tool. With the latest beta it just quits. I don't know what causes it, as I am not using it at the time. I have 32 GB ram. None of my other programs are affected. Memory leak?

Re: Not Responding

I have a similar situation with a folder of over 400 files. Anytime I use OUTLINER mode it hangs for over a minute even though there is little in the files. Why is Scrivener loading all that info in outliner mode? It appears that only the basic info is being shown to the user. The rest of the interf...

Re: [Bug] Vertically Split Editor Window Doesn't Change When Doc Clicked in Binder

THIS IS NOT A BUG. THERE IS A MENU SETTING THAT CONTROLS THIS BEHAVIOR. I JUST FOUND IT. If you right click on a document in the Binder you get a popup menu that includes the menu item: "Binder Selection Affects >" Under this menu item, there is a list of choices including the left editor,...

[NB] Vertically Split Editor Window Doesn't Change When Doc Clicked in Binder

Hi, In the latest beta, I split the editors vertically. The editor on the left behaves normally. The editor on the right doesn't change its content when clicking on the binder. If I use the menu to "Swap Editors" the behavior is reversed, that is to say, that the malfunctioning editor is n...

Replace function using REGEX and (.*) does not replace backreference using '\1' or '$1'

This must be a bug: The back reference doesn't work in replace function? What good is it if it doesn't? I mean, you can do some simpleminded things but can't you find a good RegEx package to use? This is rather annoying to learn after so much time editing in a large document with the promise that Sc...

[LH2767] Creating a new folder in Binder requires clicking away before you can add a new text file

Hi, The title may not be clear. Here is the process that fails: Click on a folder in Binder, underneath which you want a subfolder. The folder is created and you give it a name. Hit Enter to end editing. If you then right-click on the corkboard and choose "Add," then the "New Text&quo...

[LH3135] Right clicking on a filename in Binder and choosing "Duplicate" freezes Scrivener

Hi, It appears that right-clicking on a filename and trying to "Duplicate" the file from the popup menu freezes Scrivener. After a restart, the duplicate file is found in the Recovered Files folder. This has been repeated several times on my machine. I also noticed that in the main, top-of...

[LH2101] Highlight remains after Split with Selection as Title

In Version: 2.9.0.8 Beta (273516) 64-bit - 01 Aug 2018, If I split a page using "Split with Selection as Title" then the selection highlight remains where it was in the new page. That is to say, it shows a few lines down from the top. There also seem to be highlighting inconsistencies in t...

[NB] Can't Increase Binder Font Size

So far I've looked everywhere I can think of, including searching the forum, but I can't find a way to increase the size of the Binder font in the current Windows Beta. Is this a bug, or an overlooked feature? On my monitor, for my eyes, I use 175% on the editor and would like to increase the Binder...

Re: Teleprompter

Hi, I came to the site with this same request. I don't know how hard it is to scroll the windows already in the program, but that would suit me as a starter. All I want is a rudimentary speed control of some sort.My guess is that this feature might be quite popular, given that there are few teleprom...

Re: Set Selected Text As Synopsis

Thank you for your reply. "Auto-Generate Synopsis" creates a synopsis for the document you are currently working on. What I am looking for is to create a New Text document with the selection as the Synopsis rather than the Title. Do you see the difference? Or am I missing something still? ...

Set Selected Text As Synopsis

Incredible program! When writing an outline I very often use the "Set Selected Text As Title" option. It would be *extremely* useful if there were a similar "Set Selected Text As Synopsis" option. There might also be an option which created a new card with "Untitled" as...
