Newbie to Scrivener

Hi, I am quite new to scrivener, still in my trial period. In general I like it. A step up from linear writing in Google docs. I had hit some writers block a few weeks ago and decided to resurrect an unused laptop as a dedicated writing computer. The idea was to have a completely different feeling i...

Re: Name and place list

Thought I figured it out now, not exactly the best way to do this but also better than nothing at all. I will try to document how this works here for anyone who follow: F12 - Options Corrections "Edit substitutions" Here you will find all the shorcuts for special characters. This can be re...

Re: Default format of editor

Found it. Thanks I am using Scrivener on a laptop with win 10. The resolution of the screen means I had to screw around a bit to get Scrivener to appear nice and sharp. The downside is that the dialogues in the SW are now rather small. I have to put up with this till or unless the devs of Scrivener ...

Re: Name and place list

OK I see.
I was hoping there was a feature like "Ditto" built into Scrivener. Ditto is basically a multi clipboard with some other features, but these features are not specifically designed for fiction writers like myself.

Anyway thanks for clearing this up for me.

Default format of editor

Hi, I am new to Scrivener and want to know how I can configure the default font type and size of the editor.
I tried to go to the settings (F12 > Editor) but this does not seem to allow much of any setting changes.

Am I in the right spot? and if so how do I change the Font type for example?

Re: Highlight searched words

Hi Midi,
Can you tell me how this is done. I have tried the CTRL F for find, but it is not really offering the functionality I seek or you suggest.

Highlight searched words

My title may not describe what I am hoping to find as well I as I hope to. I am hoping to be able to highlight a word and then have all instances of that word to appear highlighted. A bit like a programming text editor does by default. The reasoning is to see when was the last time I had used an adj...

Name and place list

I am totally new to Scrivener and want to find out if there is a way to create a list of Names of characters and places so that I can somehow more easily enter then while I am writing. Till now I have used a multi clipboard SW to achieve this but it is quite limited. I was hoping that Scrivener had ...
