Re: Need advice about compiling a synopsis

This is certainly doable, and an option for this even comes out of the box using the "Outline Document" compile preset. Once you've selected that, click in the middle section of the compile pane to assign section layouts and scroll to the bottom to select the "Synopsis" layout fo...

Re: Issue downloading new version

The auto-installer isn't able to find the correct path to your current installation in the registry. This can happen if you're trying to update from a different account than installed originally or if you have or had multiple installations or are running Scrivener from a different location than the ...

Re: Problem Copying Inline Annotation

Thanks for the report! In the source text, what is the line spacing for the paragraph containing the annotation? Is that set to an exact amount or a multiple? Are you seeing this most often when pasting as a new paragraph into your end text vs. when pasting into an existing paragraph? (That would al...

Re: 'Paste and Match Style' loses links [RC11]

This is by design inasmuch as Paste and Match Style is simply pasting as plain text, so as a result will lose links. If you need to retain links or special formatting like bold or italics from your source, a better option is to paste normally and then use Documents > Convert > Text to Default Format...

Re: [LH4758] Table Crash

My understanding is that tables are a beast to work with from the developing standpoint, too. ;) So any reproducible steps you have for triggering a crash would be appreciated. It may be that fixing the bug with adjusting the columns after a merge will also bring stability to the other cases you're ...

Re: BUG: Including cover into epub file impossible

Are you able for the time being to use the epub 3 format rather than epub 2? The issue seems to be limited to the older format.

Re: Exporting projects as scrivener 2 troubles

Have you confirmed that your copy of Scrivener on Windows is up to date? It should be version 1.9.16. If it is an earlier version downloaded some time ago, it may not be able to read the updated 2.x format that the Mac version is created.

Re: Faster Internal Linking (drag and drop link not page/right click to copy link)

when I drag and drop a document from the binder into the page where I want it to be located it copies all of the content instead of a link This is already doable in Windows by holding the Alt key when dragging and dropping from the binder. In the the upcoming 3.0 version, dropping a link will be th...

Re: Project Replace ignores Custom Meta Data *titles*

Yes, the metadata field names are outside of the scope of a project replace. You can edit them in the Custom Metadata tab of Project > Project Settings.

Re: [LH4758] Table Crash

Thanks for the report! It's been logged. To confirm, are you only getting this crash when merging all the cells in the table? I experimented with some other variations but the table in that case updated correctly with the adjusted row/column data and I didn't get the crash. I'd like to know if that ...

Re: [LH4757] RC4 - Scrivener HTML clipboard not recognized in Chromium-based browsers. Plain text only.

Thanks for the detailed write up! I've filed this as something to look into once 3.0 is out the door; as you noted, if the issue is how Qt is populating the clipboard, we may be limited in making changes that would make the contents more Chromium friendly, but we'll see what can be done.

Re: RC11: On Compile, Underlines Not Converted to Italics With Transformation Option On for Output to Word Doc

I'm not reproducing this, but there are various factors that could be at play. What font are you using in the editor and to compile? What compile format? What version of Word are you using to open the compiled file? It would be helpful if you could create a sample project that demonstrates the issue...

Re: UK Stage template - parenthetical

No, the specific steps you're looking for here are not possible with the way that Scrivener manages script formatting. It's possible to create a custom element that models the Character & Dialogue UK stage setting and have text in a certain style up to an initial character (tab, in the case of t...
