Nitpick custom metadata

This is a minor nitpick. I have some custom Metadata fields. For date fields to enter or edit data you must right-click and select edit. you cannot simply click on the field. To complete the entry, you must press ENTER (or click outside the metadata). (unless there is something I don't know. For Tex...

Re: Errors when updating to Beta 38 from within Beta 37.

Sounds like a bad download to me. My update from 37 to 38 was fine. 1 minute. all good.

I'm using Win 10 ver 1909

Re: No keyboard shortcut options for links

I know this isn't what you wanted, but I added an icon to the toolbar for that purpose.

Re: [BETA 23] Scrivener outliner hangs

but the same amount of files are displayed fine on a corckboard view. Except the two systems are entirely different. The outline view allows you to pull down a list and choose from perhaps 20 or so columns AND even custom fields for the list view. Furthermore, they intend to allow sorting by each o...

Re: Turn off Import V1 Presets

I do monthly newsletters. Each January I do a save as on my project and save into a new annual folder with a new annual name. Then I delete everything issue below November to keep the project a reasonable size. So, this a 2018 project (or 2017) was if V1 but neither the 2019 or the 2020 had anything...

Re: Beta 35 bug: Application keeps closing when not active, no loss of work

Perhaps L&L can find a way of making users more aware of it.

Let's begin by telling me where to find it. I've spent about 10 minutes searching in the options and couldn't find it. Even tried searching the manual and still couldn't find it.

Re: Turn off Import V1 Presets

The best you can do at the moment is delete the v1 common presets. Move with the mouse over the names to see a full file path. I'm afraid. The v1 Project presets are in a scrivener3\2020Newsletters folder which version one clearly has never had anything to do with. I don't want to risk wiping out t...

Turn off Import V1 Presets

Every time I compile I'm interrupted with a Scrivener v1 compile presets import window. I made the switch to V3 over a year ago and have long since moved everything over. Is there any way to turn this off? It asks about project presets and shared scrivener v1 presets for a particular project. I don'...

Backup Pause

Starting with Beta 32 or 33 and continuing with 34 Scrivener has a new weirdness that bothers me. It didn't exist before. When I close a project, it syncs and then zip backups. I only notice this on projects that sync and backup. When I close, the program just sits there apparently doing nothing. It...

Re: Where do I find the RTF data files in the beta?

I am 'synching with an external folder' so I still have access to the RTF files as a last line of defence if Scrivener goes belly up but has the beta's new format done away with the RTF file approach, or is it something my computer decided to take upon itself to do? It seems to me you could find a ...

Re: Needing Advice

Scrivener 3 has been in beta over 2 years!!! Admittedly it started early, but ... As far as I'm concerned it is more stable and in better shape than many programs after a couple of updates to their released software. After a year or so of Beta's I cautiously went in and took a couple of non-critical...

Re: Is it possible to convert back?

I currently pray that I can keep scrivener from closing, so I won't have to re-install yet again. I'm not sure exactly what your issue is. Do you object to having to update your program every couple of weeks for 1 minute? OR is the program crashing? You say you PRAY to keep it from closing. Is ther...

[LH4085] Compile to PDF still doesn't have revision font colors

This is an old and known issue, but wondering if it is forgotten. When making revisions, I'd like to compile to pdf, but lose the color of the revisions, which is the point of the revision mode. Compiling to RTF works and I can sometimes use that. Is this something that will get fixed, or does it re...

Re: [JH] BUG: in Status->Edit, moving an entry to the end drops the font size and changes style.

using beta 25 I just right clicked on an item, selected status then Edit. Moved an item anywhere. Not just bottom anywhere else on the list. made it small. Then moved another. Also made it small. Closed the status edit. Then right click choose edit, look again. Everything is fine. So for me, any ite...
