Re: Pasting text into Scrivener prevents changing font size

Same problem pasting text from Chrome to Research Text. Font stuck on font size 26 but when I paste same text into a new Character Sketch I get the same problem unless I use right click/paste & match style. If I do this last method, the font is the correct size and I am able to change size as lo...

[NB] Uninstall of Scrivener Beta 2903 not working

Hi I had to do a system restore in Win 10. I have the 2903 Beta back on my system. Need to uninstall this to reinstall the new BEta 2904. I tried to uninstall it but got "Uninstall.dat file missing" error. Should I remove 2903 manually? I imagine that would get messy. Is there another way ...

Re: [JH] Installation affecting Chrome, Office 2016?

Avid apps, iLok, or Libreoffice.

Reinstalled Office 365 Pro (gulp). No issues so far.

Re: [JH] Installation affecting Chrome, Office 2016?

I decided that, since no one else has reported problems like this, it must be due to some fundamental conflict in my system. So, I backed everything up and reinstalled Win 10. I have only installed a few other vital apps, including Scrivener 1 and Beta 2.9.2 No problems to report so far. I will have...

Re: [JH] Installation affecting Chrome, Office 2016?

I ran the x64 Dependency Walker.on the Scrivener.exe file. I got a lot of data I don't know how to interpret.

Did I run the app on the correct file?

Re: [JH] Installation affecting Chrome, Office 2016?

Ok Krastev. That's annoying. I uninstalled iLok and Chrome works again, as does FadeIn and probably Office 365... Let's see if it holds this time...

Re: [JH] Installation affecting Chrome, Office 2016?

I uninstalled Sophos. Chrome still broken (which means Office will not work either) but it works in safe mode.

I still have iLok but I'll try that too. I have neither the Beta nor Version 1 of Scrivener installed.

Re: [JH] Installation affecting Chrome, Office 2016?

I uninstalled office a week ago. Chrome is still broken and now matter what I try, it will not open. It just flashes up and disappears.

Re: [JH] Installation affecting Chrome, Office 2016?

Yes, it's Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus (Subscription Product). Version 1708.

I'll try removing the Google/Drive plugins.

There is a conflict between G-drive plugin and Office apps when I open them on another identical system (without Scrivener Beta).

Re: [JH] Installation affecting Chrome, Office 2016?

I'm so thick. I keep missing that there's a second page to the responses on this thread. Thanks, I was about to give the whole thing up as a bad idea. The Office edition is a Uni download of Office... so I'm not sure exactly what kind of subscription it is. The group of Office progs comes under the ...

Re: [JH] Installation affecting Chrome, Office 2016?

Office 2016 no longer malfunctions - as I have uninstalled it. Hah. So far so good in Chrome. Maybe it was a conflict with Office extensions that caused the problem with Chrome.

Re: [JH] Installation affecting Chrome, Office 2016?

JH, you mentioned a walk through procedure to identify any conflicts. Can you tell me how to do this?

Meanwhile, I have uninstalled Office 365 to see if this helps.
