Re: Copying and pasting from Word results in a halved page.

That does work, but it's really tedious. It's such a strange bug/feature/thing. I guess I'll use workarounds until something is done about it. Thanks for the help!

Re: Copying and pasting from Word results in a halved page.

I'm replying to state that I'm now almost certain that my problems are due to a bug in Scrivener. When I go to Options-Sharing-Import Converters and I change the format of .docx conversion from Apose to Microsoft Office (2007-2016), it changes the right tab from 6 to 6.5 inches when I drag the .doc...

Re: Copying and pasting from Word results in a halved page.

Scrivener has no control over the Converters and their behavior. These are the best text converters we have found to date and bundle with Scrivener. Try converting your documents using MS Word to HTML, RTF or any other format and import them in Scrivener via a different format. This might lead to a...

Re: Copying and pasting from Word results in a halved page.

That's a very nice point @xiamenese makes. If you want to do a plain Paste, keeping the Word variation of formatting, then selecting all afterwards, and then pulling the right margin over using its mark on the Rulerwill let you instantly get the look you like. - Select All: cntl-A) - Show/Hide Rule...

Re: Copying and pasting from Word results in a halved page.

Well, as I point out, all you have to do to avoid what you don't prefer is to do a ctrl-shift-v paste, or do it manually from the edit or pop-up menu. Rather than 'odd behavior', what Scrivener is doing with a default paste is taking the full information offered from Word and applying it directly -...

Re: Copying and pasting from Word results in a halved page.

Whenever I copy anything from Microsoft Word, the page is split in half.... Hmm. I just tried this, and note that upon pasting, the Scrivener document has its right margin set to what the Word doc had. As well, Scrivener's view defaults to a zero left margin, rather than centering as the Word view ...

Specifically, try disabling Use fixed width editor and see if that gives you what you want.

Best,

I just tried that, and it didn't fix it. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

[LH#4337] Copying and pasting from Word results in a halved page.

Whenever I copy anything from Microsoft Word, the page is split in half so that the words only cover from the far left to the middle, rather than going from side to side.

Here is the link: https://imgur.com/a/26OLWVC

Please fix this, it's been like this since the very first beta. Thanks.

Re: Window title bar colours

For me it is grey when it is selected (due to my theme), but when I click on another window it is a very distracting white. Hopefully it's fixed.

Re: Opening where I left off?

I turned off Page View mode and now it works when switching from document to document. Hopefully this is added to Page View mode soon. Thanks!

Opening where I left off?

Is there a way to open a document so that it would start where I left off instead of at the top of page 1? It's been a while since I used the beta so I don't know if this a bug or intended.

Thanks.

Re: [Suggestion] Dark Mode

I would love this. Right now I have a bastardized version that I have cobbled together that could really use some improvement. Every application should have a Dark Mode, and Scrivener is no different.

[Question(s)] Fiddling with Colors

Hi all, I really like this new update so far, but there are some things I would like to do that I don't know how to as of yet. I have included three attachments that should help show my issues with this beta version of Scrivener. In the Word photo, you see the entire program is a dark grey backgroun...

Re: If anybody needs me, I'll be refreshing the screen until 3.0 beta arrives.

I'm very excited for this! I really love Scrivener, but I have been hoping for an update that irons out the issues I have with it. Looks like I'll be refreshing my screen as well! :D
