Re: Bug: on a new install shows that all projects are already open

It is surprising how often "backup everything" screws you up. Clients can move files within a folder somewhere else, then when we setup a new computer, all those files are back! Emails, long since purged, trashed or filed re-appear because a normal backup does not delete stuff that was mov...

Re: Bug: on a new install shows that all projects are already open

I'm just a user, but when a Scrivener file is opened, a user.lock file is created to stop someone else (or you) from opening and changing the same file. It isn't setup to handle two people simultaneously changing a file. It sounds like you copied user.lock files over when you made the transfer. My r...

Re: Styles Keyboard Shortcuts

I have no idea if this will work, but could be worth a try. Windows 10 has an Accessibility and Ease of use Keyboard option of "Sticky keys". If enabled, you can sequentially press keys instead of holding them down together, so shift-2 could be shift then 2. I'm wondering if you enabled it...

Re: [LH1877] Sorting Columns in Outliner View

It looks like this bug is still outstanding. It would be great to get it fixed as it is preventing use of custom date fields for outliner column sorting. I'd like to 2nd that. I'd still like to sort by a metadata date. I would be useful. Also, I consider it a bug that if you select a folder with su...

Re: [JH] Synopsis notes showing wrong item Beta: 2.9.9.3

MM I won't be working intensely on that project where I have those issues for a couple of weeks. I also understand not being able to fix something you can't produce. But, I'll keep the selection guess in mind. As far as I can tell, that's it. Sometimes the selected item is bright blue and very obvio...

Re: Very slow first startup of the day

Nope. I haven't noticed such a thing. I load scrivener to the project screen and from there select the project, so I'm NOT loading a project, just the what project do you want screen. The expiration notice always appear in under 2 seconds.

Re: Synopsis notes showing wrong item Beta: 2.9.9.3

This problem has continued in rc 4. It is VERY frustrating. I think I have a way to reproduce it. In binder, a folder with 4-6 documents beneath it. Each say a page or two long. Some images. Doubt any of this is essential. Then in binder I click the folder. Then drop down and work a few keystrokes o...

Re: New problem with bullets / numbering in RC4 v2.9.9.4

Is your shift key down or something else. When I add to a bulleted or numbered list a new number or bullet is created. Shift-Enter allows me to start a new line inside the indented bullet or number. Two enters exits List mode.

Re: [LH4520] Candidate release 4 broke Quick reference

in RC4 you can drop documents within the Quick Reference toolbar icon and all documents will be loaded as Quick Reference windows.


That is VERY cool.

[LH4520] Candidate release 4 broke Quick reference

I use Quick Reference a lot. Used it yesterday with Release 3. Today, with Release 4 clicking on the quick reference button does nothing! Either it is broken, or there is a setting somewhere to disable it, or something I've done since the last reboot has messed with its communication. Could someone ...

Re: Bookmarking Folders in Scrivener 3 Beta

I just checked it and got the same results. The folder shows but is treated as a single document. Didn't see a way to access the documents inside it. Also, as with notes in the inspector, it is not updated. So, when I remove the folder from bookmarks, I needed to close and re-open scrivener to have ...

[JH] Synopsis notes showing wrong item Beta: 2.9.9.3

Synopsis and notes sometimes do not track to the item used. I have notebooks with some subdocuments beneath them. I sometimes make a note in the folder about that section. I do this in notes in the inspector. If I work on 5 or 6 of the documents, then when I return in the binder to the folder the Sy...

Re: How to import a web page as a link only? Project size is too big.

Perhaps the original poster meant something I simply don't understand, but I do a newsletter with lots of links to websites. From the website you want the link to, copy the URL. Then add a link from the pulldown on the paper clip in the menu bar. You can just paste the full link, or write a descript...
