Re: Using Scrivener Free for Months?

No worries! We all used that version to get piles of books, articles, films, dissertations, documentation, essays, short stories, television series and myriad other things written, over the course of its seven year run. It's still the same old good software it always was, and I hope it serves you we...

Re: How can I play 2002 on my new Mac OX S comptuer? why does it say "Does not support live script"?

They usually are, unless something amusing or incidentally informative comes from it. For example there were some bots using Reddit re-posts of actual Scrivener questions, which would sometimes end up with good advice being given. These accounts would usually edit a link into the profile's signature...

Re: Using Scrivener Free for Months?

It says I have version 2.9 Well that might explain it. The old version you are using—which hasn’t been under serious development for a number of years now, and received its last minor bug fix update about five years ago—was made free to use on all systems that cannot run the new version (macOS 10.1...

I think the OP is living in a universe that is several years behind us, though. After all they just got a brand new Computer Mac OS X.

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 ...

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 ...
