Behaviour for Fade Between Modes

Hi there, The fade between modes does not seem to work for me. Moving to composition mode just quickly changes to that view. There is no fade animation that I used to have on my older Mac. I made sure that it was checked in Behaviours via Preferences. Is this a known issue? I'm using the new M1 with...

Re: Last opened project will not reopen

Okay, it's fixed. Uninstalled and installed again.
I don't know what was different to when I first installed it but at least it's okay now.

Thank you to everyone who chimed in with advice. Much appreciated.

Re: Last opened project will not reopen

With Dropbox ruled out and—presumably—a reset of the preferences not yielding a happy outcome, I would trying uninstalling, cold booting, and then reinstalling a fresh download of Scrivener. https://www.literatureandlatte.com/scrivener/release-notes?os=macOS If that also yielded no joy, I’d open a ...

Re: Last opened project will not reopen

I was going to suggest resetting the preferences or just toggling the options off and then on again to make sure nothing is stuck. Also noticed that Dropbox is beavering away during the opening and closing of the project, so perhaps it is locking the project in some way. Worth creating a test proje...

Does Scrivener still open without any project open?


Yes, it opens but not to the last project

Re: Last opened project will not reopen

I opened the project, then quit Scrivener without doing anything else.
Launched Scrivener again but it doesn't reopen the project that was quit.

I have to go into File>Recent Projects in order to open it again.

Last opened project will not reopen

I have my preferences set as in the attachment. The projects are all stored in a folder on Dropbox that Scrivener set up for me when I first bought the iOS edition When I quit the project and close Scrivener, I was under the impression that the last project would automatically reopen. That doesn't h...

Re: Moving to a new Mac

Project-specific settings are stored with the project and should move automatically. This article explains how to transfer projects and Scrivener's Preferences files: https://scrivener.tenderapp.com/help/kb/macos/installing-on-additional-computers It would be a good idea to make sure everything is ...

Moving to a new Mac

Hi there, I am moving to a new Mac soon. I will not probably ever use the old one again. It took me a very long time to set up my preferences and configurations and I'd like to easily move them to the new Mac. I really don't want to have to configure everything from scratch again. What is the best w...

Small Indent for Scenes

Hi there,

I am getting confused when trying to compile. I would like to have the Section Title and text as shown but subsequent sections to have a small indent. Does anyone know how to do this? I feel like it should be so obvious but I can't see it.

Kind Regards

Re: Question about Custom Metadata

If you do need some kind of “global text” concept, the best tool for the job is the <$include> tag, which injects the main text content of one item into the place where you type in the tag. Either type that in and create an internal document link to the other binder item with the text, or specify t...
