Re: Trouble with <$rst_figure> (It's not working for me)

It looks like the bug is with named streams that include an instance name as well. If I use <$n:fig> then the value resets as expected, but <$n:fig:figurename> will not reset.

This simple test project demonstrates the difference in behaviour.

Re: I wish Scrivener was an online Software as a Service (SAAS)

If you search the forum here for some key words that relate to this request, you will find this has been discussed a number of times in different threads. It may work better to add any new thoughts you may have to one of those, but I can say that there are no plans at all for anything like this—it s...

Re: Smart quotes and Markdown conflicts?

It could be worth considering not using smart quotes. MultiMarkdown handles smart quotes on its own, and I find it does a pretty good job of it (better, from what I see of the posts around here, than the Mac text engine seems to—for instance it doesn’t have this problem). And in fact if you have bee...

Re: I can't set my default right margin far enough

You can set indents without using the ruler, with the Format ▸ Paragraph ▸ Tabs and Indents... window. I can confirm if I set a paragraph to that width, and compile to standard A4 paper, I get a paragraph that extends well off of the page in a word processor. Not sure why you would want that, but yo...

Re: automatic bookmarks when compiling

If you do not want bookmarks in your document then you can disable the setting that adds them. Just be aware that will cause any cross-references break (though for a short story that’s probably not an issue). First open up compile, and double-click on the format you are using to compile, in the left...

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?

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.
