Re: Using colored text to define things in the editor

Aside from the excellent tip above, on how colour can be used purely for editorial purposes, my own favourite approach to this problem is mentioned in the manual (indeed it is organised topically from the standpoint of features rather than usage, since the latter has a billion permutations), in §15....

Re: Set top/bottom margins separately from left/right

Thanks for the feedback. This is something that has long been on the to-do list, so I would guess there may be technical difficulties in doing so. Hopefully once version 3 is out, they can take another look into adding it—we’d certainly like to see that capability as well!

Re: Files no longer open in Right Editor

When in doubt, if the window is doing weird things you aren’t used to, try the Navigate ▸ Clear All Navigation Options command. As for the manual, most of this stuff is in Chapter 12: Project Navigation, and more specifically under §12.2, Controlling Sidebar and Editor Integration.

Re: Tutorial / Section Types

Yes, this is a deliberate setting. Both file groups (“The Inspector” and “Main Interface”, to provide two examples) and regular end node file items (like “Bookmarks” and “The Binder”) are to be treated as sections . If you wanted to treat these differently in compile, you could, that flexibility is ...

Re: Error with latexmk

Could it be the other Mac is using a different LaTeX distribution? I set up that script to work with MacTeX (which is by and large a wrapper for TeX Live), so in theory it should work on any machine with that installed. Another possibility is that the other machine is older, and the texbin is in ano...

Re: Border around text on Title and Copyright Pages

I'd right-click on the text in Scrivener and see if there is an option to remove tables. If so, try using it (though you might want to take a snapshot of the document first, in case the table does some important layout).

Re: Feature Request: Dock the Inspector

In fact the Windows version had this first. :) It is a checkbox in the settings panel.

Re: Good program horrible support

We only last year switched to a new vendor after the old one (of over a decade) went out of business. We have not changed payment systems “several times in the last two years”. In the old days, one would have a physical package listing their serial number. These days we rely on email and customer se...

Re: Projekt Metadata (Title, Author, ...)

I am sure they did give it thought, as the older version had a save and close button that is always visible. Perhaps it was not used enough, and only caused confusion though.

Re: Projekt Metadata (Title, Author, ...)

You can also just hold the Alt button down when clicking on the compile button, this will cause it to save your settings and close the dialogue, without having to go through a long compile. Great for when you want to set a particular thing quickly!

Re: Move Insertion Point to End of Line via Down Arrow

And if you mean by literal line (what we think of as a paragraph), there isn’t a specific key for that, but Ctrl+↓ followed by ← works. That moves the cursor to the start of the next paragraph, where then moving left one character takes you to the end of the previous (or current) line/paragraph.

Re: Problem with keyword and custom metadata searches.

I had previously closed the project, closed Scrivener, and reopened, which I thought did the same thing, but still had the problem. It is usually pretty good about detecting when its search index is broken, and will trigger an automatic rebuild when so. But I do think specifically for things like i...

Re: Custom formating scenario

Is it possible(somehow) to auto-keep a list or even auto-create personal pages for styled and/or taged characters, items, sounds etc? I wouldn’t phrase it as automatic (and I’m not entirely sure what a “styled” or “tagged” item is), but you can surely set up boilerplates to easily fill out sheets l...

Re: Focus mode

There was no Focus mode at all in the older version, but it sounds to me like you might be referring to the Current Line Highlight feature, which is of course still a thing in Scrivener 3. It can be activated in the Appearance: Main Editor: Options tab. The colour can be set in the respective tab th...
