[LH4034] Snapshots taken in Scriv1 are inaccessible when projects are upgraded to Scriv3 beta

I upgraded one of my Scriv1 projects to the Scriv3 beta, and I noticed that the snapshots I took of a scene (five in total) were inaccessible in Scriv3. They were shown on the list of snapshots in the Inspector, but when I clicked on them, no text appeared. I clicked 'Compare' and it said 'No differ...

Re: Shift-Del Doesn't Seem to Work?

Note that this is part of a larger change to implement keyboard shortcut themes -- File, Options, Keyboard. Notice under the "Import..." button you can import Scrivener v1, Scrivener v3, Scrivener for Mac, or from a file. Also in the current beta manual under Appendix B.7 as "presets...

Issue with Editor Ruler Pre-Set

I'm not confident that I'm going to describe this well, but I'll give it my best shot. I used Options > Editing > Formatting to set the ruler to 8" wide and saved the changes. All new documents proceeded to show up with an 8" wide typing area. Great! However, when I used Documents > Conver...

Toggling Typewriting Scrolling Using Shortcut Doesn't Work

As the title says. Using the button on the toolbar to turn on and off Typewriting Scrolling works just fine, but trying to do so through keyboard shortcuts doesn't work; nothing happens. I have tried the original shortcut and I've tried changing it, but unfortunately no shortcut I've tried, no matte...

Re: Centred vs Left-Aligned Editor

I have this curse, you see, where I can fiddle around with something for literal hours, make zero progress, and then finally break down and make a post about it only to promptly find the answer myself. So, for anyone else wondering, there are two ways to do this: [1] File > Options > Appearance > Ma...

Centred vs Left-Aligned Editor **SOLVED**

On Scrivener v1, I currently have the editor left-aligned, whereas in V3 beta, I can't seem to get it left-aligned unless I use split-screen. See below: Scrivener v1 No-Split Editor: https://i.imgur.com/Q3nBRGN.png Scrivener v3 No-Split Editor: https://i.imgur.com/fegvLLY.png Scrivener v3 Split Edit...

Re: Shift-Del Doesn't Seem to Work?

If you're talking about the Window 3 beta version, that's because some shortcuts have been changed. I know, it startled me too, and I'm not sure of the reason considering those same keystrokes haven't been changed to do something else. Either way, you can change the shortcut back to what you're used...

Re: Feedback Wanted: How do you structure your Scriv projects?

I try to keep the structure as "flat" as possible cause I am putting an entire novel series into one project (Currently 70+ single novels). Good god, that's impressive. I have a series in a single project, too, but it's only six books — and two of them are novellas. I can't imagine A) the...

Re: Feedback Wanted: How do you structure your Scriv projects?

It depends on the length of what I'm writing. I'll start off by saying that I used to always write entire chapters as one long document and leave it at that. In fact, I have done this since buying Scrivener in 2013 and only just stopped as of about a month ago. Why? Because for the first time, what ...

Re: What fonts do you use?

<snip> For your existing projects—again, I hope you can do this with the current version—go to 'Project > Text Preferences…', tick the "Use different default formatting …" and set the font in the dummy paragraph there. All new documents will then use that; for existing documents, if neces...

Re: What fonts do you use?

I used Calibri for a very long time, until this topic encouraged me to look for something I liked better. I spent hours trying out different fonts. I spent a few months using Merriweather , which I absolutely love for my schoolwork or anything professional, but don't like for my fiction writing. I p...

University/College Course Template

I've been using Scrivener to write fiction for a while now, but I wasn't using it for anything else. Then, as individual Word files of my university lecture notes piled up, cluttering up an entire folder, I wondered why I wasn't using Scrivener for those , too. So I created a template for my courses...
