Re: 350,000 words lost :(

Unfortunately apple removed the data recovery port on all MacBook Pros in 2018 and they added the T2 Security Chip. I disagree that it is cheaper to solder on all the parts because the few pennies saved is lost when a failure of any part the entire logic board with memory and ssd has to be replaced....

Re: Question about KindleGen.

I would just put it in the same location and then inside Scrivener point it to the new file. The name of the executables are different and it could be confusing to rename the 64 bit executable . The i386 designation is for 32 bit programs while x86_64 represents 64 bit. That being said it will work ...

Re: Possible bug or strange behavior in header font on compile.

With the latest update that just came out this does indeed appear to be fixed. It now works the way I would expect. I even tried using it on the above template (which i have since changed) and it compiles with the correct font in the header.

Thanks Keith.

Re: Question about KindleGen.

You're welcome.

I should add that I went in the application folder and control clicked on the kindle previewer 3 app then clicked on show package contents and browsed to the file location so I could copy it and move it somewhere else to use with Scrivener.

Re: Question about KindleGen.

Thanks, I will try that, but I also think I might just freeze my mac like a production machine without anymore updates (at least for a while). I have every working exactly the way I want it to. i can't imagine they will leave it though. I noticed they finally updated the kindle for mac app to 64 bit.

Some personal feedback

I realize that I have posted in the bug and support sections but have never really given any feedback. Now having used Scrivener for a while I thought I would. First, as to how I use it. All my research and outlining and first draft are all done in Scrivener. After that a word doc is exported which ...

Re: Header font weirdness

I never did figure this out either. Even after I did set all the project text to the same font as the header. Anyway It was not that important to me so I left it. I use scrivener for the first draft the compile to a word doc where it lives for editing. The editor does not care about header fonts (Ju...

Question about KindleGen.

Scrivener uses KindleGen when compiling to mobi. I noticed KindleGen has not been updated since 2014 and appears to be a 32 bit unix executable. I was wondering if the software engineers here have heard anything from amazon about if and when they plan on updating it?

Re: Possible bug or strange behavior in header font on compile.

What appears to me to be happening is that it is picking up the first font it finds. I think that even though I have changed all the fonts to Courier New since by default I think a word document has Helvetica it must still be there in the beginning with a empty space character or something in the co...

Re: Possible bug or strange behavior in header font on compile.

Thanks,

Re: Possible bug or strange behavior in header font on compile.

I have a template I made that I was going to zip up and post here but realized it works properly so it must be in my project. I actually checked another novel I am working on in another .scriv file and it is indeed doing the same thing as well. So, I am wondering if I should email you the actual fil...

Possible bug or strange behavior in header font on compile.

In the compile settings I have set the header font to Courier New 12. If I tick add front matter: Title page all headers seem to work fine. IE when I open the compiled docx document file in word 2019 mac they are indeed Courier New 12. If I untick Add front matter when compiling so I do not get The ...

And now I have it is showing me the metadata of the file that is selected inside that folder. Even if I click on a folder in the binder it still sh...
