Re: Section Type > Default Subdocument Type

The default subdocument type changes what is the default for structure-based, it won't make it so that every item beneath it is hard set to "Scene". That way you can change your mind, or drag an item out of that folder and have it automatically become whatever it should be in its new posit...

Re: Where does Scrivener 3 for Windows save project files?

There is no fixed location for where projects are saved, that happens after you select a starting template, when you will be asked where to put the project. By default that is in your Documents folder, but it’s entirely up to you. As for backups, those will by default go into your hidden AppData fol...

Re: Where’s the ruler??

The iOS text editor does not have the ability to set tab stops, only left and right indents, nor does it have a built-in ruler control. As noted above, you would make adjustments to the indent settings with the Formatting pane.

Re: Cross platform compatibility

Given the screenshots you posted and the description give, it does appear to me as though there is some kind of transfer error with your cloud provider. Essentially you made a structure like this, if I understand correctly, on Windows: Folder/ Project.scriv/ (Internal project folders) Project.scrivx...

Re: Placing a bookmark within a draft document / manuscript

For a permanent marker, what I do for this is just drop an inline annotation (in the Insert menu) at the spot where I want to return to, and type in something easy to find later, like "STOP//". I'll use "MARK// (reason)" if I need more than one at a time. Later on you can just ty...

Re: The circle game

I would give it another try at this point, if you haven't recently. There was a server issue for a few hours where attempting to check for an upgrade coupon would have returned an error.

Re: Appearance (Dark v. Light) - global only?

Like all Mac software, you either are using dark mode or light mode. Some programs (like Scrivener) more rarely let you choose whether to ignore the system level setting.

Re: Superscript question

The method I described in my first response is still relevant. Using exact line spacing instead of multipliers is the way to go.

You can test for yourself whether Apple has adjusted the behaviour, using TextEdit. I doubt they ever will though.

Re: How to compile with scene names

If you started with the novel template, then you probably don’t have to do very much at all. Just go into compile and: ⋅  Click on the Assign Section Layouts... button, below the preview area in the middle. ⋅  Select “Scene” in the left sidebar, and then scroll through the layout...

Re: Scriv 3 beta Compile STILL not preserving font in ePub??

Yeah, you definitely do not want to be overriding body text font family settings, and many readers won’t even let you try (you should be previewing your book formatting in end-user tools, rather than Calibre or Sigil, both of which use rather stock web rendering previews that are way more permissive...

Re: folder-syncing Markdown files: problem with linebreaks

That’s an excellent setup by the way, I’ve been doing something very similar with combining Obsidian and Scrivener, one for the loose note gathering and connectivity, and the other for the writing. Since I keep their roles distinct, and their areas of the binder separate, it is no problem to leave b...

Re: track changes

That doesn't sound like you're editing text at all, at that point, and I'd suspect most of your Format menu is disabled in that case. The difference between platforms is that on the Mac, all text chunks in the session will be cleaned, on Windows only the one the cursor is in, and then you get that o...

Re: track changes

⋅  I don’t seem to have that issue myself, though I am trying from Scrivenings mode, as that is the only place where you can edit multiple text chunks simultaneously. Come to think of it though, try this one on the Mac, if you’re on your PC at the moment. The PC version still struggles to...
