There is still an issue with possessiveness (that's a lot of s'es) for words that end in s within single quotes.

Re: updates do not remove previous entries in SETTINGS-APPs

Do get this problem when running the built-in updater, or when downloading the full installer and running it right over an existing installation? I've seen it happen with the latter, but not so much (or at all) with the former. Just wondering given the wording. I happens with both of those methods....

Re: New Beta version via Update-option OK?

Using the updater alone is OK, testing out the updater, however, you should be aware that it leaves pieces parts (and parts is parts) of the previous versions lying around. You can see this in the Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel. I usually use the downloadable version rather than the built-in u...

Re: [Beta 22] Scrivener loses track of where it is, with double-clicks

- No Location key was present, after the very careful full deinstall-alls and clean install 64-bit Beta 22 as admin - I put in the key, pointed it to C:/Program Files/Scrivener, and no more problem. - Now I have clean Scrivener startup on double-clicked project .scrivx files. Just to be sure, check...

Check the color again. Mine were set to a light color that looked okay-ish in the options pane, but even with the opacity cranked up to 100% were hardly noticeable on white. Go bold.

Re: Sideways text or inserting landscape document in otherwise portrait project?

ETA: Ugh, doesn't work. Forces it into portrait and cuts off the right side (2 columns) of the table. Sigh. That also foils the idea of turning the table into an image, as that will not fit on a portrait page without being shrunk, either. I haven't been able to get the section type idea to work yet...

Re: Moving from Beta to Official Release

If you export that key using regedit before an upgrade, you can import it after the upgrade (assuming the format doesn't change. It hasn't changed in years, and I don't expect it to). They just changed the paperclip Insert icon from the formating toolbar (optional) to the main toolbar (default). On...

Re: Sideways text or inserting landscape document in otherwise portrait project?

I'm sorry if this is distracting, as I'm not sure it's even possible and I don't want to put in suggestions (as asked). But I'm thinking there has GOT to be a way to do this! I'm using the current beta to work on a class manual (to fully learn version 3 so I can hit the ground running when it comes...

Re: [Suggestion] [2.9.10] UI Improvements

So, I found these options here: Options->Appearance->General Interface and played with them (defaults are 36px and 29px). Increasing either/both numbers (only up to 50px, the upper limits for both) did NOT increase the icon size at all. The icons are definitely at a fixed size or do not respond to t...

Re: BUG: Inserting Horizontal Line Turns On Underline Formatting

Using any of the Horizontal Line options from the Insert menu (Centered Line, Page Spanning Line, or Signature Line) turns on Underline formatting for the following text. This bug doesn't cause existing text to become underlined. Rather, it turns on Underline format even if it was off, which causes...

Re: Snapshot Text Does Not Fill Pane

Sorry to report that Snapshot margins are still mimicking main editor margins in Beta 20. Don't see this listed as a bug, but it should be. The main editor settings seem to affect all of the inspector editor windows - at least it is really noticeable in snapshots and notes. For instance, if you set...

Re: Images

Is there a way that i can compress images for the e-book output? I have the original files imported into the research folder, needing them in 300 dpi for print. Now I get huge files in epub. How do I shrink them? While there are lots of image editors and the like, some free and others costing hundr...
