Editing synopsis on ipad is lost on import [2.9.9.7]

As simple as the subject says - I edit the synopsis for chapters on my iPad, sync dropbox, desktop syncs, launch scrivener, get an error that it couldn't import, Screenshot of the message attached.

Autosave failure for Project Writer in Rc4

Error during autosave (folder location is dropbox). For context, this was just after I learned that splitting a document carries the word target goal (not sure if that's recent in general, or if I just missed it all together). I only mention in case it has something to do with how the new file is cr...

Saving the document as an RTF and import/splitting that worked.

Import (and Split) completely broken?

I tried searching the forums first, but the closest report I saw was about structure. This is a more basic bug report: I've tried to import a document with "Import and Split" and receive an "Unknown Error" dialog. The first time, the document was docx and on my local onedrive. Su...

Re: Multi-document select all

Hi Mike - If you're not getting the convert dialog, chances are excellent that your focus is on one of the editor panes. Try Navigate > Move Focus To > Binder or just make sure that a Binder doc is the last item you click before running Documents > Convert . If there's no prompt with multiple binde...

Re: Multi-document select all

No, the technique will work for sixty documents at once. Just make sure your pane focus remains in the Binder. As for spell check, I'm pretty sure the developers have acknowledged that Scrivenings under Windows will not match the Mac version's behavior on Select All. It's apparently not achievable ...

Re: Multi-document select all

FWIW, although I used font changes as an example, other example uses include being able to spell check select documents, etc.

Re: Multi-document select all

Can't speak to the development plans, but there's no need to effect a multi-doc font change piecemeal in the Beta. We can select our target docs in the Binder, run Documents > Convert > Text to Default Formatting and then at the prompt check Convert Font Only . Of course we'd first change the defau...

Multi-document select all

Are there any plans to make the windows version function like the mac version in the scenario of multiple documents selected in view mode, where select all selects all of the text across all of the documents vs the currently active document in the list? That sounds convoluted. Let me try again just ...

Re: Spell check false negative?

Ah! That makes sense, thank you for the quick reply! The reason for the problem that you describe is that the Aspose spell checker dictionary is different from the WordNet dictionary. As you can see the WordNet dictionary is usually a superior one. We use predefined Aspose dictionaries from reliable...

Also double checked that this wasn't a case of UK vs US usage (which happens far more frequently than I care to admit)(stupid differences)

Spell check false negative?

With spell checking as I type enabled, a word that is spelled correctly is underlined. Except that the built-in dictionary recognizes the word too... I'm not even sure how to reproduce this. I even triple checked paper and online dictionaries convinced my spelling still must be wrong.. Screenshot at...

[LH3648] UX display bug between maximizing and composition

Easy enough to reproduce. I am working on a 32 inch monitor fwiw, but the effect is the same on my laptop screen (though less prominent) * Maximize Scrivener (I've tested this in both editor and outline mode) * Hit the button for composition mode. * Hit the escape button to leave composition (pressi...
