empty document forgets assigned style

Documents (as in, a single document in the Binder) without any text in them don't remember the styles assigned to them. I'm noticing this in Scrivener for Mac 3.0.1, running 10.13.2, on a macbook pro, with a document that syncs via dropbox. Steps to reproduce: 1. Create a new document in the binder....

Re: Where has the iOS Wish List Gone?

…barring any technical difficulties, that shouldn't be a problem. Oh, God, please don't tempt fate like that! Seriously, though, I (and every Scrivener user I know) am looking forward to the iPad version with barely contained excitement. Well—since I got a bluetooth keyboard (the logitech tablet ke...

Re: Scrivener + MacBook Air = ♥

This philosopher cannot resist stepping in to say that W.V.O. Quine once observed (sorry, I can't dig up the citation right now) that the double negative (found in many romance languages) is best understood as two parts or two occurrences of a single negation. The fundamentals of logic—the fundament...

Re: Commenting on PDFs in Scrivener 2

I see the madness! The new pop-up comments just feel less like *editing* than they seem like a version of the notetaking that we already do alongside PDFs with Document Notes. (I suspect that's less true on the implementation side of things than it is on the user-facing side, though.) The workflow f...

Re: GUI to highlight PDFs in Scriv 2 disabled

Yes, I noticed the menu/keyboard shortcut approach to highlighting. But then there's no way to change the color of the highlighting. (So far as I can tell, even if I've changed the highlighting color somewhere else using the format bar, the highlight of a PDF is always yellow.) It's a minor point, r...

Commenting on PDFs in Scrivener 2

Right now it's not possible to add comments to PDFs within Scrivener. But it strikes me that the new "pop-up" comments in Scrivener 2 (that is, the ones that aren't inline) would be great for annotating/commenting on PDFs. This would be very helpful for research: it would be similar to jus...

GUI to highlight PDFs in Scriv 2 disabled

In Scrivener 2 it's possible to highlight text in PDFs (if it's "real" text, not a scanned image of text). But the GUI control for doing that is in the format bar; and the format bar is entirely greyed out/deactivated when you're working with a PDF. (There is still the menu command to high...

Re: Working off of network drives (MobileMe; DropBox...)

Thanks for the quick reply! Of course it would be foolish to minimize the dropbox risk—but for those of us willing to take our fates into our own hands, knowledge of the risk helps us to make informed decisions. As for mobileme killing projects entirely, hurp . (FWIW, I only view this as an acceptab...

Re: Working off of network drives (MobileMe; DropBox...)

What I've read in the past led me to believe that work wouldn't quite exactly be *lost* through dropbox. As I understand it, what in fact happens is something like this: when dropbox sees a potential sychronization conflict between two versions of a file it renames one of them (e.g. to something lik...
