Jim

I think it's in Options > Appearance > Textual Marks > Colors > Spell check underline or there or thereabouts.

Re: What font do you use?

Authors have only been able to see how their words would look to the reader for the last 30 years at most. Between the invention of the printing press and the first WYSIWYG word processors, writers bunged out the words with quill and pen and typewriter and resolutely monospace fonts and then posted ...

Re: A possible way to make Project Search a bit easier

Jack, You really don't have to scroll through each document -- that would be tedious indeed. All you need to do is press shift-cmd-f , type your search term, press enter then cmd-a . This will highlight all the documents with matches (ie turn them into a scrivening), then cmd-g will take you to each...

Re: What is the default binder font in Scrivener for Mac?

I'm back on the Mac now and can check... As I said before, you *can* download the system font and use it as you want -- it's just not available by default and it's given another name. Have a look at the web page I posted the link to before and download the font called SF Pro (short for San Francisco...

Re: [B44] Question: open quick reference window without changing main editor focus

The easiest way is Alt-n-r (Navigate > Open Quick reference): this will open up a collapsible outline from which you can choose the document you want.

(NB: the item Navigate > Open > Quick reference acts on the currently selected document only, so don't confuse the two!)

Re: iPad OS Support for Trackpad/mouse

The best news about iOS 15.4 isn't the trackpad / mouse thingy, although it's welcome in itself. It's that you can *finally* reconfigure the external keyboard to get rid of the unnecessary Caps Lock key and make it into the main Control key As Nature Intended. That means that many of the Mac navigat...

Re: Which is better with Scrivener: MacBook Air or 27-inch iMac?

iMac for upstairs, laptop for downstairs.... You can't beat the big screen when it's time for planning and refactoring - the bigger the space for index cards, multiple windows and so on. But that big screen is too big to fit on your knee when you want to sit downstairs with headphones on while your ...

Re: What is the default binder font in Scrivener for Mac?

Last time I looked the underlying font was called San Francisco, which appears in the list as SF. If it doesn't appear in Font Book (I'm not at my Mac now so can't test....), it looks like you can download it from here (again, not tested, but it is Apple's own site). https://developer.apple.com/font...

Re: Using Scrivener with Sidecar or Duet Display

Brett, Yes, Silverdragon (thanks SD!) has illustrated the method I was suggested perfectly. Quick Reference Panels can be very useful... It's not really made for flipping through a number of documents quickly, but for getting more views on a single document it's indispensable. Glad it works for you ...

Re: Using Scrivener with Sidecar or Duet Display

If I've understood this right, you simply want to see one document in the main screen editor, and the notes to that document (or another one) on the second screen. Is that right? If so, can't you open the document as a Quick Reference window (right click on it in the Binder and choose Open in Quick ...

Re: Definitions

One way: Create a new folder for the definitions. Each new definition will be a separate document in that folder, with the title being the word or concept and the body of the document the definition itself. In the text, when you enter a word that has already been defined, enter it in [[square bracke...

Re: Scrivener 2.9.42: Removing Carriage Returns (CR's) [Windows 3 Beta #218

It seems to be only the Find dialogue having this problem.

Project Search will find ^$ for blank lines -- but Project Replace seems to use the Ctl-f mechanism and it fails in the same way.

Re: Exporting Internal (Link to Document) Scrivener Links

The only settings I can find on Windows are on the Corrections panel -- the main one is to auto-complete the title. On the Mac, the [[ ]] setting is on the same panel, though it's slightly differently arranged. Testing, I've just noticed that you're right, it doesn't automatically turn it into a lin...
