Re: New ways of using outline view in individual documents?

If you read all the way to the end of the thread you linked, it includes a few additional thoughts based on Scrivener 3's new features. Beyond that, I would say that the behavior of the program discussed in that thread is essentially unchanged. Katherine Thank you. I did notice that if you create a...

New ways of using outline view in individual documents?

So I ran across this interesting post from 2017 . Gregory asked about making outliner-style hierarchies for the paragraphs within a document: ...[in my academic work] the individual documents that make up my overall argument also have to be organised and logically coherent... [so I] compose my parag...

"Ignore spelling" in normal editor doesn't affect composition mode & vice-versa

If I "ignore spelling" a word in the regular editor, it still shows up with a red line under it in composition mode, and vice-versa. It seems like I have to do it twice. Have Scrivener 3.1.2 (10882) for OS X.

Re: Mis-capitalization after "i.e."

Is there a reason why this hasn't been fixed yet? It seems like a fairly elementary point on what must be an extremely common issue, no?

Search at top of Scrivener doesn't reveal in binder

Suppose, for example, I type in part of the title of a document that is not currently visible in the binder. It comes up in the search... I click it, and it is highlighted... wherever it is. But I have to scroll up and down to figure out where it is.. Is this normal?

Re: Composition mode -- cursor should be keystroke-ready immediately

I looked at my mac-level autocorrect list and don't see anything that would affect dates. I did have Typinator installed but quit it and tried the whole thing again to see if that would change anything. No dice. Had an external keyboard connected, disconnected that, also no change. I also tried figu...

Re: Composition mode -- cursor should be keystroke-ready immediately

Ok, so let me go over a really minimal version of this. This is so weird. I'm in another, basically blank project. Currently, composition mode works correctly. I take an untitled blank document which already exists in Drafts, and I type the following: Thursday, February 22, 2018 (I don't even press ...

Re: Composition mode -- cursor should be keystroke-ready immediately

Sure, it's attached right here. I confirmed that the text of this note would make another new project do the same thing.

[edit: file had some personal info in trash I removed and re-uploaded... I re-tested it and copying the text of its only note still has the same effect]

Re: Composition mode -- cursor should be keystroke-ready immediately

Oh, you're right! Oh weird. It seems to be just one project... but now I noticed this:

if I copy the text of a problem note from one project to a project that didn't have a problem before, now that project has the same problem -- not just in the problem note but in every note!

Composition mode -- cursor should be keystroke-ready immediately

When I enter composition mode, I currently have to use my mouse and click to start typing. It would make sense for the cursor to be positioned and ready to accept keystrokes immediately upon entering composition mode... probably centered on the line where it was just before composition mode was acti...

Re: Scrivener as a project tool for non-writing projects: version 2 is good enough, version 3 is overkill

Scrivener has always been that kind of program: where you are given lots of little ingredients and asked to combine them together into larger recipes. Scrivener 3 just adds many more ingredients, and makes those that were there a little more seamless and a little more integrated than they used to b...

Spelling check strangeness?

I'm using Scrivener 3, and the spelling check does not catch things that should be spelling errors:

For example, w'ere and d'ont don't trigger a red underline.

Similarly individual letters all by themselves like 'z' or 'w'.

Quickly creating new document at one higher outline level

So in my binder, I -- like just about everyone -- often create nested documents: Persons --Mary --Robert --Peter --Furniture Places Two questions: -Is there an easy way of unindenting something? For example, how do I take Furniture above and make it at the same level of Persons and Places? The only ...
