Re: Too many fonts.

I often find the Format ▸ Font ▸ Show Fonts panel to be more efficient than using the dropdown anyway. For one thing you can type in the name of the font you want in a more natural way (rather than just cycling through first-letter matches one by one), and since it isn’t previewing the font there ar...

Re: "Creating a backup"!

If you haven’t changed your settings, then you won’t be generating numerous backups beyond what is reasonable. The default limit is set to keep only the five most recent states your project was in when it was last backed up. For most people that will be around a week or two or work. You can read mor...

Re: Keyword organising

Well you might want to give some thought into keeping things in one larger project, in that case. :) I don’t know, maybe that would introduce further complications I’m not aware of, but maintaining a huge list of keywords across eight projects sounds like a lot of work to me, and I’d wonder if there...

Re: New menu item: File » Restart Scrivener

I think a better approach to this would be a "Restart Now" button in any dialogue box that warns you of the necessity of doing so before seeing changes made.

Re: Mass Font Changing

The easiest way to change bulk formatting is with the technique described in this knowledge base article . Before doing so, if the main reason for switching things up is to fix the kerning issues, you might want to try playing with the “Display Font Hinting” setting, in the Editing: Options tab ( Fi...

Re: How can I organize the documents in parallel in the arrange-by-label view?

You can't get two cards side by side like that because the horizontal axis in this case shows you the order of the cards within the selection. Only one card (or chunk of text in the overall flow) can be in the 5th position, so with this view you can move one of the cards ahead of it, but then it wil...

Re: Page numbering!

If you enable View ▸ Text Editing ▸ Show Page View then an estimated page count will be provided in the footer bar. It’s worth stressing, as it is in the manual as well, that this is an estimation. It’s not really possible to know what the actual page number of anything is, since compile can so radi...

Re: Writing in columns that correspond in content

Is there another way to format this as I work in scrivener and/or to complile this way? Not as you work, for all of the reasons given above. Scrivener’s text editor is just not designed for that kind of page layout. But you can indeed compile into columns, it’s just not enabled in any of the defaul...

Re: Document Links question

I use inline annotations for any links that are "off the record". I never set links to output as links when I compile anyway (they get stripped away leaving only the visible text behind), so I'll sometimes just attach them to the most relevant piece of text. In your case for example, I wou...

Re: Keyword organising

Before working with the assumption that you definitely want to write all three (and eventually up to eight) novels of this series into one single project, I figured it would be good to suggest an alternative. It is of course fine to combine books that way, but it’s worth noting that there are other ...

Thanks for the report! I've got this, and some other related scenarios I discovered, written up for them to take a look at.

Re: Cannot update to version 3.0.1.0

It should be safe to download the installer and just run it over the existing install folder. We will usually point out in the release notes if it is not safe to do that.

Re: Version: 2.9.9.16 Beta (1183694) 64-bit - FEATURE REQUEST

Comparison is addressed within the built-in tutorial in the Help menu, in the short section on snapshots.

And of course the documentation for the Inspector tab itself, where snapshots are viewed, discusses comparison in §13.6.4, pg. 275.

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

Both “Mac OS X” and “macOS” are branding names, not statements about the underlying technology (save for being available exclusively to Macs). As for what the “X” stands for, it is the roman numeral for 10, which is the version of Mac OS that we have been using since 2001 (Mac OS 9 being the last ve...

Re: Show Bookmarks → Click on Bookmarks → Reveal in Binder / open in Editor instead of Quick Reference Panel

Do you mean bookmarks in the inspector? Because the closest menu command to what you mention is Project ▸ Show Project Bookmarks , but that loads what you click on into the main editor. If you do mean the inspector, then the default can be changed in the Behaviors: Document Links preference pane, un...
