Re: HOME and END keys do not work

Karabiner Elements is brilliant! I have it set up so that: * Caps Lock is Escape when tapped and Control when held down with another key * Return is Return when tapped and Control when held down with another key * Right Opt and Right Cmd are swapped round (easier to use for accents / navigation) * P...

Re: HOME and END keys do not work

I can't test this as I don't have a keyboard with those keys on, but I think it's HOME / fn-left / cmd-up = beginning of document END / fn-right / cm d-down = end of document PAGE UP / fn-up = screen up PAGE DOWN / fn-down = screen down Others: BEGINNING OF LINE = cmd-left / ctl-a END OF LINE = cmd-...

Re: HOME and END keys do not work

AIUI, that's working as intended: for Apple HOME is beginning of document, END is end of document, so Scrivener sounds like it's working as intended. The equivalents for beginning/end of line are cmd-left/right. This is from the official Apple documentation: On your Mac, use the Command and arrow ke...

Re: HELP! How to size chapters?

As for the questions about the synopsis: you won't be able to use all the text editing features (because underneath the hood, the synopsis is actually a plain text document, not RTF), but you can achieve the other requests easily enough. 1. To get a full size (almost) window for editing the synopsis...

Re: Two computers and my family members

Basically, you and any family members *living with you* can use one Windows licence on any Windows machine mainly based in your house, so you'll probably need two licences in your circumstances.

Re: Will beta 3 install be able to access files created in Version: 1.9.16.0?

They do this to make sure every beta tester is using the most current version — otherwise there'd be a lot of wasted effort report bugs which may already have been fixed.

They will issue a new Beta before then — just install the new Beta and it will inherit everything you've set up with this one.

Re: Still no settings option to turn off snapshot sound?

OK... Then presumably it will be on the list for a future release as the plan AIUI is to replicate Mac behaviour / features when feasible.

Re: Still no settings option to turn off snapshot sound?

On the Mac the option is Preferences (Options in Windows) > Behaviours > Snapshots > Play Shutter Sound when snapshots are taken, so presumably that's where it will be if it exists in the Windows Beta. If not, presumably it will be added later, though that's just speculation, of course.

Re: First Letter Capitalized In Every Word For Chapters And Titles, Etc.

You Can Change A Selection Manually To First-Letter Capitals with Edit > Transformations > Capitalise.

I don't know of a way to do this automatically with a style, I'm afraid.

Re: Accessing a blank Character Sketch

It looks like you've been amending/duplicating the character sheet template in the Templates folder, and that's not really how it's supposed to work. The idea is that you create a blank template (or use an existing one) in the Templates folder (ie, for the Character sheet, one with just the headings...

Re: Scrivener Preferences Can Be Saved and Loaded, But Project Settings Can't?

You asked if you could copy project settings across for metadata. This is how you do it. Or you can create them once in a project template and reuse that for new projects.

Re: Convert project to document bookmarks and back?

Of course you can drag bookmarks both ways. Try it again.

Do you think people who try to help you just make this sort of thing up?

Then keep it in Document Bookmarks mode and flip the Project Bookmarks HUD on with cmd-shift B (close with cmd-w). Then you can see both together.

Re: Document not opened in editor when selected in outline

OK: it was worth checking, as you didn't mention it in your original post.

But Scrivenings mode is irrelevant here: this feature should work whether the right editor is in Scrivenings mode or not, so it sounds like a bug.

Re: Convert project to document bookmarks and back?

There's a command to turn any document into a Project Bookmark on the Documents menu (Add to project bookmarks, which is also on the context menu), though it acts on the current document, not on the reference. That's a bit fiddly. So the easiest solution is probably: 1. Select the Document Bookmark ...
