In Dark Mode, cannot see the cursor in the Notes section

In Dark Mode, the cursor is not practically visible in the Notes section. The cursor and BG color are nearly the same.

This makes it pretty hard to edit notes.

Re: Way to see WYSIWYG when writing in script mode?

Thanks popcornflix -- I didn't know about WriterSolo. It looks great. Nice to know about the copy/paste compatibility! You would think that Scrivener could see you go into Script Mode and be like "I GOT THIS" and just make sure all the settings are standard and give you WYSIWYG. It could l...

Re: Way to see WYSIWYG when writing in script mode?

Thank you RWFRANZ! This is exactly the sanity check I was looking for. I'm surprised what a difference the hinting was making.

With your help, I've now got the editor Page View giving me pretty much the same result as Final Draft.

Excellent catch on the compile error there. That's great to know.

[LH4313] When Highlighting text in Script Mode, the highlight is vertically off-center. (RC7)

I'm in Script Mode in RC7 with all the defaults (only thing I changed was to go into Dark Mode). When I highlight any of my screenplay lines, the highlight is vertically displaced by some number of pixels from where it should be. In some cases on multi-line highlights, there is a gap above the last ...

Re: Script Mode: TAB and RETURN not working, & styles not sticking through typing (v. 2.9.9.7)

ANOTHER UPDATE: What's happening is that somehow, over time with Scrivener open, the Script Mode files lose the expected TAB/RETURN functionality. In my last post I said that new files had the functionality working fine, but the older ones did not. That is true, but even the new ones had since lost ...

Way to see WYSIWYG when writing in script mode?

I've read in passing that Scrivener has never been intended as a WYSIWYG editor. However -- As a screenwriter, knowing exactly how long my scenes are is crucial. Seeing exactly what 1 page looks like is crucial. Having to repeatedly compile to see -- is my Act 1 too long? On which page does my midpo...

RC7: Duplicating a text changes line spacing

1. Create a page with text in it 2. Duplicate the page 3. Look at the line spacing on both pages 4. Notice that the line spacing on the new duplicate is not the same as the source page For example, duplicating a page that has line spacing of "1.1x" according to the toolbar results for me i...

Margins vs. normal writing view way off? (RC7)

I'm super confused about setting margins versus what I'm actually seeing when I am writing scenes (in Script Mode). The paper size is LETTER, the margins are as shown (LEFT: 1.5 and RIGHT 1.0). Yet in the writing view, the margins aren't really shown, and then the width of the page can fit more word...

Re: Script Mode: TAB and RETURN not working, & styles not sticking through typing (v. 2.9.9.7)

Update: It seems to work on new scenes I'm making, but does not work on my older scenes. I'm not sure why. Toggling script mode doesn't make a difference.

Re: Script Mode: TAB and RETURN not working, & styles not sticking through typing (v. 2.9.9.7)

I feel a bit alone here? Has anyone successfully used Script Mode as described? Or does anyone know of a possible timeline for a fix here? I'm curious if I should wait for a fix or just do the actual writing part in Final Draft.

Re: tab and return not working in script format

I'm also having the same issue on Windows 2.9.9.5 Beta -- and I'm not sure whether it's just not supported yet in this beta version, or if it's a bug? I double checked that FORMAT --> SCRIPTWRITING --> SCRIPT SETTINGS... had all the "Allow tabs" checkboxes to OFF in the "Tab/Return&qu...

I haven't tried, but this is a good find. It is pretty hard to argue with source control diffs.

Re: I tried to like it. I really did.

Ideally, they would add a button that lets you insert another side bar, one that works exactly the same as the one that's already there. That way, you could have two, each viewing different things. Turn it on or off as you wish. This would be similar to how a lot of programs with customizable interf...
