Re: em dash search

Thanks for the suggestion, I don't have a keypad. But I found a solution . Created an auto-corrected em dash with two hyphens and copied that into the search.

em dash search

Hi,

How does one search for an em dash in text? I tried typing two hyphens into the search, as that's what the em dash is auto-corrected from, but it didn't work.

Thanks

Re: Formatting styles not working for .mobi

Well I compiled and output to Word.docx, then translated that file through Calibre to .mobi and everything that was supposed to be centred, was. It was centred in Word before the translation, too. I tried using Calibre docx conversion too, When I used centred text for the separator, it worked fine....

That's true, but the High DPI version was introduced to fix this problem with another dialog. Hopefully they'll merge the two versions before release..

Re: Formatting styles not working for .mobi

I see the same centering chapter/separator problems with .mobi output. I partially fixed the custom separator by importing an image into scrivener, centering it then using <$include:Separator>.. But this only worked for one chapter - after that, the image got replaced by a default, and the html trun...

Re: [Beta 43] Whole word option doesn't work in Project Replace

I found out the hard way. After finishing the first draft of a novel, I changed a character name from Mo to James. Literally every occurrence of 'mo' in the document got changed to James! I tried to reverse by changing James back to Mo, which kind of worked - but any word starting with capital Mo (M...

Re: [Beta 43] Whole word option doesn't work in Project Replace

There was no reply to this, and I see it's still an issue with RC7. I checked the forum and can't see it noted anywhere else.

Thanks for that too - I don't mind manual setup, at least it's under my control.

[NB] Can I setup more than one instance of sync->external folder (feature request?)

Is it possible to set up multiple instances of sync->external folder? E.g. I want to collaborate with two people, but want to control the files that each person can access.

Re: [LH4572] [RC6] Scrivener crashes if composition mode is opened multiple times.

Hi,

F11/ESC/F11 etc crashes on my Surface Pro too. However, machine gun tapping F11 does the same toggle on/off, but doesn't seem to crash. I suspect it is slightly more involved than just the keyboard buffer.
