Re: Lag when moving between documents

I'm saving files onto the hard drive of my Macbook Pro, formatted as APFS (Encrypted). How do I determine block sizes?

Thank you!

Re: Lag when moving between documents

An update: The lag is back, also when footnotes aren't displayed, though nothing else has changed. (I'm running the same applications alongside Scrivener, which are taking up the same amount of memory...) This is really making the writer harder than it should be. Any others suggestions? (And again t...

Re: Lag when moving between documents

That appears to do it! I'd love to be able to see my footnotes at the same time, otherwise this seems a very good workaround. Many thanks indeed.

Re: Lag when moving between documents

Many thanks for your suggestion, Mark.

Inline footnotes won't work for me I'm afraid. It's a historiographic work with a lot of additional detail in the footnotes.

Would be great if this were addressed in a future release!

Re: Lag when moving between documents

Re: Lag when moving between documents

Single doc mode. Individual docs are between 1000 and 3000 words. I really don't want them to be any smaller. Footnotes: there are lots of them. (I guess my phrasing was ambiguous: The project is 100,000 words "without" – in the sense of "not including" – footnotes.) Thanks for y...

Lag when moving between documents

Hello, I'm experiencing a lag when moving back and forth between individual documents. When I click on a document in the binder, Scrivener immediately takes me to the top of the document in "document view", but then freezes for a few seconds before returning the cursor to the place where I...

Re: Mark sections of text as "Not for Word Count"

+1 for this feature

I would also love to be able to exclude bits from the word count in Scrivener.

Having to compile every time you want to see the (correct) word count is not a very practical workaround.

Re: Q re behaviour of inspector comments & footnotes

Many thanks for the reply, Amber, and thank you also for your suggestions. Collapsing footnotes and comments doesn't do it for me I'm afraid – there's too many of them, or perhaps individual chapters are too long (but I don't want to make changes to my chapter structure at this point). I guess I sha...

Q re behaviour of inspector comments & footnotes

Hi all, I have a question about the behaviour of comments and footnotes in the inspector window. I like how, when I move back and forth between individual documents in "document view", I'm always returned to the place where I left off (rather than the top of the document). This is very use...

List changes

Hello,

I'm working on corrections to my PhD thesis and have to document every single change I make to the original submission,

Is there a way to have Scrivener auto-assemble a list of all changes?

Thanks for any and all hints!

smart quotation marks

hi!

every once in a while scrivener stops auto-replacing smart for dumb quotation marks. sometimes an app re-start makes it work again, right now it doesn't.

Compile formats

Hi, A quick question. Apologies if this has been answered before; I can't find it in the forums. I'm about to compile my 100,000 word thesis. I am both unhappy with the default compile "formats" and finding it difficult (time-consuming when time is of the essence) to create my own. Do peop...

Bulk-change acronyms from all caps to small caps

Hiya!

Finishing a draft of my thesis, which has lots of abbreviated organisation names in it – UNESCO, NATO etc. Is there a way to bulk-change all these acronyms (i.e., all words that have two or more letters and are currently all caps) to small caps?

Thanks for any and all suggestions.
