Re: [JH] Selected Document Type and Outline Level Not being Highlighted in Binder

Aha, how bizarre! My apologies for not getting a step-by-step from you earlier, but I'm relieved you were able to find it, and I've filed the bug.

Re: [BB] Selected Document Type and Outline Level Not being Highlighted in Binder

Thanks for trying. I also tried from a Dropbox project and from a different drive, but no difference in behaviour--still works as it's supposed to. :) Let us know what success you have with disabling those apps. The odd thing is that the labels are drawn the same way, and you are seeing those, so I ...

Re: [BB] Selected Document Type and Outline Level Not being Highlighted in Binder

You shouldn't need to recover or reinstall anything; I'm not sure where you're looking at that says so. Here are instructions for launching in Safe Mode in Win 10 , since it's a little trickier than earlier versions because of the speed of startup. Once you've started up, launch Scrivener as normal ...

Re: [BB] Selected Document Type and Outline Level Not being Highlighted in Binder

Thanks. The project is showing the section highlighting fine on my Windows 10 environment, so it doesn't seem to be anything problematic with the project-specific settings. If you've already tried setting the program settings to defaults, I do think at least testing by rebooting into Safe Mode would...

Re: [LH2374] Dragging a Text File to Create Document Link inserts the Text instead of creating Link

3.0 on Mac changed the behaviour so an unmodified drag of a text document to the editor drops the link, and Opt-drag drops the text. Previously it was the other way around, and Windows just hasn't been updated yet to make the unmodified drag drop the link.

Re: Dragging a Text File to Create Document Link inserts the Text instead of creating Link

Hold the Alt key while dragging to insert a link instead of the text. Windows hasn't yet switched this behaviour in 3.0 (in Mac 2.x, you likewise held the Option key while dragging to insert the link, as you still do for images--3.0 is just adjusting this slightly to make the simple drag what is typ...

Re: [LH2910] Cannot change column width if I copy and paste Excel table into Draft Folder

Thanks, this is filed. It's just a temporary disabling; if you close and reopen the project, the Cell Width property is available again to adjust.

Re: [JH] Installation affecting Chrome, Office 2016?

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. You can download the Dependency Walker here , then install and run it. Opening Scrivener's .exe file there will create a list of all the libraries it loads on your system. That might give you a clue to what's causing the conflict. Before that, one thing to...

Re: Scrivener not exiting cleanly? [2.9.0.2 and 2.9.0.3, 64-bit]

No, there's no automatic connection with Dropbox; it shouldn't be affecting things. Could you launch Scrivener via the ScrivenerLog.bat file in its installation directory, with admin rights, and let that log through when you quit Scrivener, then see if that offers any indication of the problem? You ...

Re: You can add a new collection without naming it, remove the name from all collections and name collections the same n

It's not a bug, just a design choice, and the same as on macOS. There's no harm in having collections of the same name, or no name at all if that's what you want, and it's simple to rename a collection by double-clicking in its tab, so there's not a reason to force the user to provide a unique name.

Re: Everything looks bloated...

Thanks for sending the project. As rdale said, I think this is just a zoom difference between the two programs on your machine. Windows hasn't yet implemented the new style for controlling the zoom in notes, but you can set it currently in the beta by going to File > Options > Editing. There's a &qu...

Re: Everything looks bloated...

simeva, what font and font size are the notes in the original 1.9.7 project and in the upgraded version? I just ran a quick test with Arial Narrow 11 and it upgraded as expected. Do you have a sample project you could share that demonstrates the change?

Re: [BB] Selected Document Type and Outline Level Not being Highlighted in Binder

Options shouldn't affect this, but I'd try reseting those to defaults and testing again, just in case. Save your current ones first so you can reload them after the test, and if there is a difference in the behaviour, please share the settings file with us so we can try to track down what's causing ...

Re: Everything looks bloated...

So does that mean to convert an existing project for use in Scriv 3, I 'll have to manually change each page of document notes? I have projects with thousands of pages. The notes should open in Scrivener 3 with the same formatting they had in the previous version; nothing special needs to be done t...
