Re: Is there a way to assigned Hotkeys for the Formatting Styles/Presets?

I don't think so (without using third party software), but the new version 3 (currently in late Beta) does have shortcuts for styles — these are the more powerful successors to formats.

Re: Is there a way to cut and paste a document?

Just to round off all the options... :D You don't have to be in the binder to move/copy documents — the cursor can be in the Editor or the Inspector and Documents > Move to > (select folder) and Documents > Copy to > (select folder) will still work. However, you need to be in the Binder to move mult...

Re: How to block paragraph in compile?

Do you mean that your paragraphs should have no first line indent and should be followed by a blank line? It depends on the compile format you've chosen. For example, 'Modern' already has this style of paragraph built in. If you want to use another format which doesn't use block paragraphs by defaul...

Re: Word Count for folders

Scrivenings is the ‘virtual documents’ mode, where you stitch together any number of individual documents in the binder (consecutive or otherwise) into one long temporary document, so you can see, for example, only scenes with character X in one go, and none of the ones where X doesn’t appear. While...

Re: Italic causes incorrect font

I've just tried it on a *fresh* install of Big Sur (so 11.0.1) and Scrivener 3.2 (build 14233), and cmd-i works for italics in Courier Prime Sans as normal; Screenshot 2020-11-18 at 08.21.41.png I can try it later on the laptop, which is upgraded rather than installed from fresh. I had to install Co...

Re: Bug: Instacrash after 3.2 upgrade

Big Sur fresh install on 2017 iMac. The system does not have pandoc or latex installed I was too late to try the original 3.2 version from yesterday, so can't test it. I've installed the alternative version (14233) and so far, on a quick test only, I'm having no problems, and there's no clash with m...

Re: Totally Blank Document

@Namonakimichi As has been said above, you can't remove those three folders, because they perform special functions necessary for Scrivener. But you can hide them if you want. For example, if you only want to see the documents which will be compiled into the final document (ie the Chapters, Scenes, ...

Re: Weird Line Breaks - don't know how to correct

The problem is that you have line breaks (the blue arrows) mixed in with the paragraph breaks (the pilcrows). In Scrivener (like Word) a paragraph can have blank space before and after it — but if you use the line break it ignores that space which is why your text has different line spacing. Line br...

Re: Should I upgrade to Big Sur now, or wait?

I upgraded the desktop this morning and it's been fine so far. I like it, but I have no interest at all in what icons look like (I hide the dock as one of the first steps — why click on things when you can launch apps with spotlight like nature intended?) so I may not be a reliable guide on the aest...

Re: Word Count for folders

It still works for me.

You have to be in Scrivenings mode to see the word count for subdocuments in folders. Highlight the folder in the binder, and if it's not already in Scrivening mode, press cmd-1. The word count will change to the count for the entire folder.

Re: INTERNAL 'bookmarks' (for major running themes/concepts)

This won't do everything, but you get a fair way there with Inline annotations. E.g. you have two major themes, Death and Taxes. You could begin each relevant paragraph with the annotation THM: Death, THM: Taxes. (I suggest using a prefix like this for easier searching). This gives you the following...

Re: Scrivener for Mac or PC?

The Windows version has some technical limitations (because of the toolkit which is being used) which don't affect the Mac version. These may or may not be important to you. I think the one I'd miss the most is the reduced features for Scrivenings on Windows. For example, you can't select all the te...
