Re: How can I play Wordracer on my new Mac OX S comptuer? why does it say "Does not support live script"?

You know, I did not even know there was such a checkbox. I've always figured that any comments we made were only seen by moderators, so we've never really used it! Good to know.

Re: How about using MS Word Styles when exporting to MS Word?

I want to compile my chapter folders to generate the chapter labels in Word, and to automatically give them a “Heading 1” style in Word. In the mac version, the compile styles have a nifty little field called “Include styles information in exported file” and this check box does not exist in Windows...

Re: Customization of Corkboard are all over the place

It’s also covered within the first 350 words of the basic introduction to the Corkboard, in the interactive tutorial. There are settings that impact all projects equally and simultaneously, and those that change how one single open project works. There is very little overlap between the two, and we ...

Re: How can I play Wordracer on my new Mac OX S comptuer? why does it say "Does not support live script"?

I've moved this thread to the general software discussion board. I would say though, you would probably have much better luck asking on whatever forum or support avenue Word Racer provides, than here.

Re: Is there any update on Scrivener 3 for Windows?

I am unsure of what you mean us by halfway through something, but there should be a bug fix update pretty soon. We’re hoping to get a fix from our vendor that will resolve some issues with the built-in store, before doing so. And in case you are unaware and thinking it is still in beta, and that’s w...

Re: Document icons in a project not syncing between Mac & Windows

In this specific case, I think it would work best to create two custom icons that are named entirely different from the built-in icons on either platform. The problem is that the way the built-in icons are addressed internally is different from custom icons, so if you added two that the Windows vers...

Re: Header bar remains grey instead of blue or red

The header bars work the way you describe if you leave all of the navigation settings alone, but they will change behaviour if you set, for example, Navigate ▸ Binder Selection Affects ▸ Left Editor . In that case it will always stay blue on the left side, even if you click into the right side. You ...

Re: Large wasted space in document editor

Appendix E, in the user manual, is where you will find most of the changes that we get asked about. This one is on page 720 of the latest revision (might be slightly different if you're using the revision in the software), under "Text Editor Uses Fixed-Width by Default".

Re: Conditional Compilation Limitation

Hmm, that should be working just fine with the first checklist of settings (make sure you didn’t leave “Invert Results” on!). Keep in mind that the whole keyword list plus the label becomes one piece of text internally, so searching for ‘Purple Hit Hit2’ with “All Words” set will match a document se...

Re: Confirm Quit

If you want to a run a program made by someone that isn't paying Apple's yearly developer tax, you can right-click on it in Applications and select "Open" manually. That should then provide an override dialogue box to run it anyway, and once you do that once it will run normally from that ...

Re: Conditional Compilation Limitation

Invert reverses the match, so to use a simple example, if you search for "Purple" in the label field, then the only items that will come back in search results are anything not labelled as purple. Ignoring diacritics probably won't be terribly useful unless you use them in your metadata an...

Re: SAVE PDF TO SCRIVENER - not working with Big Sur OS

It used to be you could also drop a PDF right onto the Scrivener icon in the Dock, which makes sense given how this "Save PDF to Scrivener" mechanism works. All it is doing internally is saving a temporary PDF file and then loading it in the software that has an alias in this special folde...

Re: As I rename documents or move them in the binder, the document link changes. What are the rules ?

I tried the instructions at the end of your post, AmberV, and find that Textedit throws and error saying that there is no application to open the link. When I go to Applications to choose Scrivener to open the link, Scrivener is greyed out. Odd. I remember this working fine. That would be expected ...

Re: Conditional Compilation Limitation

While you can certainly run successive searches to narrow things down, that won’t be useful to you as a compile filter, because you can only have one filter active at a time. That is why we need to use a Collection as a filter in the first place, because collections are capable of handling multiple ...

Re: SAVE PDF TO SCRIVENER - not working with Big Sur OS

There is no fix for the underlying problem that you can make, Scrivener is not receiving PDF files via the mechanism of "opening" the PDF in Scrivener, which is how it worked before. It is on the list to be fixed, I can't really speculate much more beyond that into whether it can be or when.
