Crsh After Switching Spaces (?)

Hello, for some time now I'm experiencing occasional Scrivener crashes. I *think* it happens when I'm working in Scrivener and then switch to another Space. And I *think* I usually have Scrivener running in full screen mode. But, of course, it only happens sometimes and not always. I have never lost...

Console flooded with message

Hi Keith, I don't know if it's since I've upgraded to 1.11 but today I noticied that Scrivener floods my Console with messages like this: 10.12.07 15:29:13 Scrivener[2187] passed-in style: Alignment 4, LineSpacing 0, ParagraphSpacing 0, ParagraphSpacingBefore 12, HeadIndent 36, TailIndent 468, First...

Thanks, Keith. It didn't occur to me that I simply could turn off export formatting. I told you I was being dumb...

"Preserve formatting" setting for new documents

Hi, it seems that new documents always have the "preserve formatting" setting switched off. Is there a way to have new documents automatically have this setting switched on? I searched the help file and the preferences but couldn't find anything. But perhaps I'm just being dumb :-( Regards...

Clearly the German keyboard layout thinks it needs this key combination for some reason and so blocks Scrivener from using it. Do you happen to have any idea how to exactly find the culprit here? For example a debugging tool that will tell me, "Hey the responder for this keyboard shortcut is t...

I wouldn't know what. I disabled Quicksilver and FastScripts just to make sure. I still doesn't work. I also had a look at my Keyboard System Preferences and couldn't find anything either.

I'm using a German keyboard layout and German localisation. Do you think that could be the problem?

Keith, first of all thanks for the new release. It looks great. I think I have found an issue though. It seems that the shortcut for Document Notes (Alt-Command-6) is not working. When I press Control-Command-6 the Project Notes show but when I then press Alt-Command-6 it doesn't switch to Document ...

I have to admit that the only things I write by hand are shopping lists or the occasial note when I'm in a telephone conversation. (But then I don't write poems and haven't written a love letter in a long time.) One reason might be that I have a horrible hand-wirting, and I kind of wonder if that's ...

Ah, language. With the rise of Starbucks & Co. the word "latte" has started to be used in German as a synonym for "coffee with milk", too. But it's kind of strange, because there's already a German word "Latte". It means "batten" (at least I hope so, I had...

Keith, the above bug occured to me again. I wanted to rename one of the characters in my story. So I used "Replace all" in the find dialog. I then could not decide whether to use the old or the new name, so I used the find dialog a couple of times with both names. After three times the exc...

Sorry, Keith, but I just had the Console running in the background. When I came back to it the log entry was already a couple of minutes old and I couldn't remember what exactly I was doing at that time. I didn't notice any strange behaviour in the application, so it probably doesn't have any side-e...

And holy crap, I've used that Leopard-only method everywhere (emphasis by me) Be careful what you're writing, you might be breaching your NDA :-) I, too, have the Console open and noticed this one: 2007-07-24 20:41:29.059 Scrivener[522] Exception raised during posting of notification.

Sometimes, however, prices only seem to be higher because (at least in Germany) prices are always including tax. That greatly confused me when I was in the US and always had to pay more than was printed on the price tag because they add the tax afterwards. But the tax of course doesn't explain a dif...

On the bright side, you often don't need the driver


You're right. At work we run a Windows network. I sometimes bring my MacBook. And guess what? Thanks to Bonjour it's easier to find and hook up the printers here than it is with a new Windows machine.
