Re: Creating an Index for a scrivener document

You have to go through your text and mark the entries you want to show in the index.

I even give a practical example of how one could do that, in the user manual in the section on Advanced Replacements Usage, pg. 566.

Re: Printing Comments and Notes Sections

You can compile with just notes (and probably titles as well), and you can also export all inline annotations and comments with the File/Export/Comments & Annotations... menu command. You can’t do both of those together—but you can one after the other and get pretty much the same result.

Re: Label & Status in Inspector in 3.0 (elimination of General Pane)

So, you would want them to be moved into the Metadata inspector pane and available nowhere else? How would that not be in fact actually burying them, as opposed to aesthetically placing them in a place you aren’t used to yet? ;) I don’t really think there is enough space in the Metadata tab for anyt...

Re: Custom Color for External Hyperlink on Compile to PDF?

I'm pretty sure there is only control over the internal link colour, that you already found.

Re: Auto-Numbering

It certainly is a change! Even for one coming from something other than a word processor—before Scrivener I wrote mainly LaTeX, and I would sometimes use LyX—either way it is better to work in long documents rather than think about a document in terms of small pieces. Should the <$sn> placeholder be...

Re: Session target missing from Quick Search field

It could not physically fit the additional information into the space that is provided, and so is collapsing the display to only the draft target. If you remove some buttons, or make the window wider so that the Quick Search tool has a little more room to breathe, you should see it then.

Re: Compiling with a specific language

I’ve clarified the user manual, but in short that’s just how the counter works. Since macOS is providing the numbering, and it provides numbering based on the system localisation settings, you get localised numbering in all cases. The only way around it is to temporarily set the system to English, o...

Re: Scapple V.1.30.1 crash on start - MacOS 10.7.5

Unfortunately Apple doesn’t send logs, so if you could get one from your ~/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports folder and send it in to support that would be great! Meanwhile I would try the stock troubleshooting stuff that’s a good idea to do whenever you upgrade a program and it starts crashing: ⋅...

Re: Auto-Numbering

Given that your desired output matches the result of using the <$hn> placeholder, you might consider using that instead of trying to build your own hierarchical numbering stream from scratch. But if you’re doing this as a learning exercise then carry on. :) That aside, it looks like you might have f...

The preserve formatting typo has been fixed there, and also in the What's New section.

The rogue table formatting is fixed.

Re: Highlight names are different

This isn’t specifically addressed in the migration guide you are referring to. I think what you might be observing here are differences in the default highlight colours. This trick works by matching colours, and if there is match then the menu name is changed to reflect the one you provide in the pa...

Re: Problems Opening Scrivener 3

I'm unclear on what you mean by your post---are you saying you applied the fix describe above and it is still happening?

If so we will need more information and essentially debug this from the start with no assumptions---perhaps there is another warning message somewhere with the same problem.

Re: Scrivener User Manual Corrections

Those two problems have been fixed (and the snapshots introduction in general has been reworked and better proofed). I’d hold off on reporting any broken links, as mentioned above: The link should be fixed—in fact I’ll tentatively say all links should be fixed in the next revision. I did a big sweep...

Re: Internal Links Disappear on Compile to Kindle

I did note the renaming you spoke of in the compiled files, by the way. You should get no renaming issues if you have created a “Left Image” style in Styles compile format pane, so double-check that you’ve got that part set up right. I can get left, centre, right aligned images, images with 1/3 and...

Re: Help Search Menu Issue

Given the search feature is a general macOS utility we have no direct control over, and given that this isn’t a universal problem, my advice would be to examine any areas of the menu that are driven by data or configurable. Since nearly all of the above cases would be derived from project-specific i...
