Re: Latex compile: block creating extra line feeds

…Perhaps good upon first introduction of the product, but for my specific case this part of Scrivener is not for me…. To clarify, I was specifically responding to the feedback for making this a little easier to learn, and so approaching the problem from the standpoint of a relatively new user who i...

Re: Latex compile: block creating extra line feeds

It sounds like you may be using the rich text to MultiMarkdown conversion option in compile which will, unless otherwise stipulated, spread lines apart as the idea for that setting is to allow one to write in a largely word processor oriented fashion, with no double-spaced Markdown paragraphs, etc. ...

Re: Applying a child keyword but Scrivener inserts the Parent keyword instead

There is one intentional behaviour that would cause the parent keyword(s) to assign, but it would do so in a way that would assign both the dragged keyword and its parents: you hold down the Option key when dragging. But that doesn’t sound like what you are describing, and I mention it mainly for th...

Re: Compile to Word .docx produces blank document

Also check the filter settings, the highlighted funnel icon to the right of where you switch between current selection and the whole document. I suspect you may have some settings in there that are changing how things export---in particular whether to export checked items or not.

Re: How to let windows scrivener file transfer to IOS version ? urgent ....

With Scrivener projects, you can open them on the Mac and iOS even if they were made with Windows. No need to change it. On the Mac, it will need to upgrade the format because it is newer. Once you do that, it will not open in the older Windows version, but iOS can read *both* formats. If you are ge...

Re: Removing comment also removes underlying hyperlink

I can’t reproduce this following your steps precisely. It strikes me as unlikely that it would though, since Scrivener isn’t the sort of software that adds text formatting to hyperlinks. [1] When it encounters a hyperlink, it adorns the text dynamically in accordance with your preferences for how li...

Re: How to let windows scrivener file transfer to IOS version ? urgent ....

If you are moving all Scrivener documents to iPad and not using Windows any more, then it would be easiest to plug the iPad into the PC and use iTunes to copy all of the files quickly. For the Mac, I use a USB stick with the format set to ExFAT, which both Windows and Mac can read. External hard dri...

Re: Removing comment also removes underlying hyperlink

Yeah, that's because it is a technical limitation first and design decision second. The only way to get that kind of capability, where you can click on text and it opens the comment, was to co-opt the hyperlink mechanism. That is also why you can't have a comment on top of a footnote, too. They both...

Re: Removing comment also removes underlying hyperlink

That's because comments are links. You're replacing one link with another, so the actual loss of the link happens earlier in your checklist than you're thinking. Consider using inline annotations if you need to make a remark on a hyperlink that should remain functional.

Re: Lock In Place in 3.2.1

Yes, I moved this to feedback, since it seems to me it is primarily feedback on the change. There was a comment there that making a change to the “system accent” colour might help (I presume this meant the Appearance colour for buttons etc set in Prefs/General) but my setting there remains at blue, ...

Re: Download file for 3.1.5 is corrupt and will not install: Can you fix corrupted file?

Everything seems to be okay with the download on my end (I’m using 10.14, I don’t think that should make much difference). Although I had a copy from yesterday downloaded, I just tried again using a browser to double-check, and it unzips correctly. I renamed it to “Scrivener-315.app”, moved it to /A...

Re: populating custom metadata throughout a project

Unless the metadata field is a checkbox or list type, there are no bulk settings for them. However, although you mention using templates, I think you mean that specific to project templates, which is of course where you would set up the fields themselves, but have you explored document templates at ...

Re: Okay... so how DO I install Java?

If you use homebrew, it is as simple as typing "brew install adoptopenjdk" into Terminal. This, incidentally, installs the same distribution of Java that Scrivener was using before.
