Use docks to arrange text-side UI elements

(Reposting from Beta forum) Current behavior: Scrivener uses two different types of widgets: integrated panels like the Binder and Inspector, and pop-ups like the Styles panel. The two are handled differently in terms of visibility, size and location. Expected behavior: Use docks to arrange all &quo...

Re: [NB] Editing saved styles

I've already given you one way in which the current method is superior And I've shown you two in which it's inferior. That being said, I'm not suggesting taking it away, I'm suggesting an enhancement. Nothing you have suggested offers any practical advantages over this method: you're simply used to...

[Bug] Differing R-click behavior between Main toolbar and Format toolbar

System specs:
Scrivener v. 2.9.0.10
Windows 10

Current behavior:
R-clicking on the main toolbar allows toggling it off; R-clicking on the "format" toolbar does nothing

Expected behavior:
R-clicking the "format" toolbar provides similar functionality.

Re: [NB] Editing saved styles

Of course there's a method - there's a method in Word and Latex too - the question is of ease and comfort. Editing styles through the text is like chopping vegetables on the dining table instead of in the kitchen - sure, it's possible, and "the veggies will eventually get there", but do yo...

Re: [Suggestion] Editing saved styles

Again, you're both assuming I want to apply that style now . I don't. I want to deal with the formatting now, and apply it later. It's a different usage scenario than what you're both suggesting, which the current way - which uses the text as a controller for the styles - complicates needlessly. Bre...

Re: [Suggestion] Editing saved styles

the functionality *is* there where it's needed because you're acting directly on the text But you're not looking to act on the text - you're looking to act on the styles . What if I want to modify the styles (or create new ones) without modifying the text? Then I need to do three actions instead of...

Re: [Suggestion] Editing saved styles

I appreciate you making that clear, and I agree regarding Word . Why would you want that? Usability. We expect functionality to reside where it is needed; if modifying one thing requires changing another which is conceptually unrelated and some distance away (esp. if it's the text, which is the conc...

Re: Editing saved styles

Well, I hereby suggest a new feature (which is actually old - common in "word processors"): editing styles.
