Re: v3: mysterious line of placeholders in Chapter Title

That code specifically shouldn't ever come up as visible in Scrivener, it is one of the hidden codes it uses to mark style usage. Last I checked, styles don't work correctly in the Prefix and Suffix fields yet, which is probably how they ended up showing as codes like that. You can safely delete the...

Re: Meta Data Time stamps

This is already something you can do with custom metadata. You’ll find a general introduction to metadata in §10.4, Organising with Metadata , but custom fields are covered in §10.4.4, pg. 243. They show up in a special pane of the inspector, but you can also add them as a column to the Outliner view.

Re: Trying to see all comments across work...what am I doing wrong

I think mainly you need to switch your keyboard focus over into the editor, rather than leaving the selection active in the binder. The inspector can only show one item at a time, so when you have several items loaded at once it will revert to these limited options. In Scrivenings mode over in the e...

Re: RFTD format for ScratchPad

Oh, if that's the main reason you've been using it, you can paste pictures into RTF as well, and it is cross-platform compatible with Scrivener for Windows! :)

Re: RFTD format for ScratchPad

Unfortunately that wouldn't be safe to do, as the RTFD format's sub-file could be damaged by editing it directly in an RTF editor that wasn't using the Mac to edit the file. For example if you drop an image into the text editor, it adds the image as a separate file, and then inserts an invisible mar...

Re: Scrivener 3 Themes for macOS

If you're referring to the texture setting that can be applied in the Appearance: Main Editor: Colors tab, then no, there is no way to make that work as anything other than a texture---that is the purpose of the feature. :)

Re: Question: Scrivener 3 (Windows) pandoc compile processing options?

Okay! I better understand what you mean, and in that case it makes more sense that you’d be getting different results at the ODT end result level. If you were to compile to Markdown as a plain file instead, you should see the results as identical whether using MultiMarkdown, Pandoc or additional pos...

Re: Scrivenings toggle not working. (unable to switch between group and single file)

Is this a toolbar error specifically, or does the menu command also not work? Keep in mind that Scrivenings, like Corkboard, is supposed to toggle on and off for eligible views. It won't actually do so for single files as there is no logical outcome, but for folders and file groups, it should be swi...

Re: Scrivener 3.0.0.0 Keep up to date - Deleted Scrivener.exe

Did it crash after clicking the submit button, or while you were typing? Very odd either way.

In the meanwhile you can sign up for the newsletter on our web page as well (it’s at the very bottom of the page).

Re: Unable to change Folder name using the Folder Title on the Editor window.

The main condition I can think of that would cause this is if you are viewing the folder in Scrivenings mode. In that case, the folder is printed into the heading as a prefix to the section you are currently editing. In that case, neither element is editable. Eventually they hope to fix it so that t...

Re: Is Backup still restricted to DropBox?

Scrivener doesn’t back up to any cloud services, let alone only one or two, not sure where you heard that from. It has an automatic backup feature to your disk, which is enabled by default, and stored in your user Library folder. But you can set the folder to be anywhere you wish, and if saved into ...

Re: Conditional Compilation Limitation

There are several ways you can go about getting more from filters, if you need it—this is indeed an idea that scales well. Most of them will revolve around using Collections as your primary filter, and putting the variability into the collections themselves. The idea is to create a collection for ea...

Re: Is working over Google Drive, cloud storage, still discouraged?

The method I use has been written up in our knowledge base as well . I use a combination of synchronisation, Scrivener’s automatic backups, and a simple workflow, where on device switch I pull the latest backup from the stack to the local disk and work on it from there. How one manages that side of ...

Re: "Right Indent" is extremely misleading (Scrivener 3)

I’ve never heard this argument before, that where a measurement’s origin starts from should define how a thing is referred to in its end product. To me it is the result that matters—where in this case, the right edge of the text block is pulled in from the margin, hence operating as a visual indent ...
