Re: Moving from Windows to Mac...and back again?

Are your projects all marked as "Always keep on this device" in Windows Explorer (and have the corresponding green circle check mark icon under Status, showing that they have all been fully synced?) Remember that OneDrive can do a mode where it syncs the metadata but not the actual files,...

Re: Left-Aligned text at center of screen when zooming in-out

This tripped me up when I started using the beta. I think you need to disable "Use fixed width editor"
file->options->appearance->main editor
Once applied, you'll need to restart Scrivener.

Re: Can I revert to older version of Scrivener for Windows?

I did a quick search and found a few references to Avira causing app crashes with error id: c0000374. Entirely disabling Avira worked around the issue, followed by upgrading to the latest version - perhaps worth checking that you are running the most up-to-date version.

Perhaps not a commonly used function, but I can reproduce it. It looks like a bug. A simple workaround is to rename the text file before quitting the project.

Re: Windows 10 Printing document to an electronic file

Using Scriverner 3.0, I could ctrl-p and print the current document to Onenote (desktop). Can you print from another Windows program, such as Word, to Onenote (desktop)?

Re: [BUG] Menus are still rendering incorrectly - this was pointed out in the last release

Yes, this is a know problem with the Theme style sheets which is not easy to fix unfortunately. We tried fixing it few times, but the result caused bigger issues. We will give it another try when we have less pressing issues to fix. I see what you mean, the poblem goes away if I change back to the ...

Re: [RC 21] General performance problems.

The same issue was discussed recently: viewtopic.php?f=57&t=65604
Likely related to the 20K section size.

My Surface Pro 5 does the same on both the touch screen and external monitor. Wondering if it's related to a Scrivener setting, I've attached my settings and theme files..

Re: Composition mode loses edit point when in Scrivening view

Jez wrote:It's a large manuscript (100,000 words). However, switching to Scrivenings view, I am handling a much smaller chunk (eg 5000 words, 15 documents) as the manuscript is divided up by sub-folders.


I don't often use composition mode, but see the same thing on a similarly structured 110K document.

I unpacked a Scrivener produced .mobi file with the KindleUnpack Calibre plugin and found a potential issue with the enclosed epub file. The chapter xtml files within the EPUB are missing the link to the stylesheet css file. <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="../St...

Re: Formatting for .mobi

This issue has been around for ages. I first reported it for RC5 in May 2020. Since then, I've done the same as you - use Calibre to convert to Mobi format. It would be nice to get it fixed for the release version. That said, when I last published a book via Amazon KDP, the web page suggested upload...
