Re: Importing Word or RTF Doc with Footnotes? (Version 3.0)

Conversion to RTF on import has always happened and isn't affecting this, but there is a bug that is causing the comments and footnotes to import as regular inline text. This is fixed for the next update, which will be out soon. I'm sorry for the inconvenience!

Re: Word Count WITH footnotes in Footer???

The live count in the footer can only count the text in the editor for speed reasons, so to include footnotes in that count (rather than needing to click it to show the popover), you can use inline footnotes instead of inspector footnotes. To convert existing notes, use Edit > Transformations > Conv...

Re: "Next style" not working properly

As I understand it, font and font size are not character styles, but font face is — face meaning regular, italics, bold, etc. Am I wrong? Sorry, I meant to say typeface. Bold, medium, italics, etc. would be part of character formatting, so that would be preserved if possible (to the extent the inst...

Re: New install is not in English

Currently, 3.0 may first run using your system language, if Scrivener has a volunteer-provided translation package for that language. The intent was to only have this run automatically if the interface was fully translated for the given language, but there seems to have been a mix-up so that that so...

Re: Line Spacing missing from Project Ssettings

Hi Jennifer, I reported a bug similar to this in a very late beta release, I can try and find the post if it'll help you. Yeah, if you have steps for reproducing this, that would be great. I'm aware of the bug whereby the chevron is either not opening the menu or is opening it but not showing the l...

Re: Line Spacing missing from Project Ssettings

Line and paragraph spacing is set via the format bar above the editor, but it looks like the default size on your screen isn't wide enough to display that. There should be a little double-chevron icon to the right of the "A" icon showing that there is more not visible, and I'm not sure why...

Re: Scrivener 3.0 Tutorial Cork Board

I'm sorry you're both running into some trouble. I haven't been able to reproduce this, nor have we had other reports on it, so it doesn't seem to be a universal problem. Therefore it'd be helpful to get a little more information on your particular setups to try to track down the issue. First off, j...

Re: "Next style" not working properly

The font family and font size options, when selected for inclusion, apply for paragraph styles as well as for character/all-formatting styles, so the original report is in fact demonstrating a bug. The font settings are being saved in the style and are applied when the style is applied to existing t...

Re: GUI display issues with Scrivener 3 for Windows.

Thank you for the image; that's helpful to see what is going on. You should be able to position the cursor at the bottom of the right editor and see it change to a split divider which you can then click and drag up to reduce the height of the copyholder, revealing the main editor. In a new project (...

Re: How do I sort my notes?

At the moment, the sort command is split into two separate menus; the Edit > Sort command functions on text within the editor to order paragraphs, and under Documents > Sort you'll find the options to reorder the binder, outliner, etc. These are intended to be merged into a single command under Edit...

Re: Issue with two screens and scaling

Thank you for the kind words! Unfortunately, the multi-monitor resolution issue is a limitation of the Qt framework's resolution and display scaling handling. This has much improved in recent major Qt updates, so we can hope it will extend in future to dealing more gracefully with a mixed resolution...

Re: What is "PDF Display" and why does it do nothing?

Yes, there's a bug here whereby the submenu is not displaying when a PDF isn't selected; it should behave in the usual fashion and show the submenu of options with those options disabled when not applicable.

Re: Creating text doc in Corkboard switches to editor

The behaviour will depend where your focus is. If focus is in the binder, creating a new text document will automatically switch to showing that new document in the editor (though focus will remain in the binder, ready for you to enter a title for the new document). If focus is in the corkboard, Ctr...

When I started it with the logs enabled, it goes well up to a point after loading the fonts, then repeats the following error over and over: Critical: File: Line:0 Function:QSettings: RegEnumValue failed (No more data is available.) The line indicates Scrivener isn't able to access the registry cor...

Re: V3 - Scrivener randomly freezing during start

Based on the timing, it sounds like there may be some other software that starts up on your computer and is preventing Scrivener launching correctly at the later point. You could try booting in Safe Mode with Networking and following the same steps there to see if the problem repeats or if Scrivener...
