Re: Bug Report 3.1: Focus toolbar icon disabled in fullscreen mode

I'm a little late, but I just installed 3.1.2. Saw this in the release notes: - Fixed bug whereby the text focus mode toolbar item would not work in full screen mode. For what it is worth, this is still broken for me. When in fullscreen, I can turn focus mode on and off, but I cannot change which fo...

Re: Bug Report 3.1: Focus toolbar icon disabled in fullscreen mode

Awesome. Really love that feature, by the way. It's brilliant.

Good talking to you again! I couldn't resist playing with the new Dark Mode feature and themes, and stumbled across the "focus" thing.

Bug Report 3.1: Focus toolbar icon disabled in fullscreen mode

I love the new "Focus" feature, but I think I hit a bug. When you place the "Focus" button in the toolbar, you can use it to enable/disable the feature, and also change the mode (Line, Sentence, Paragraph). However, if you then put the application in MacOS Fullscreen Mode (not Co...

Re: Codes for compiler

The number that immediately follows the "Level" is the point in the hierarchy that the item applies to. So "Level 1" refers to items in the root of the hierarchy, while "Level 2" would refer to items at the next level, and so on. Whatever level is currently the lowest l...

Re: Display Inspector / Toolbar problems

Conflict files are caused by cloud-syncing services (like Dropbox). Usually they are created when you open a project on a computer while it is still syncing from another computer, but there are other little hiccups in cloud-syncing that can result in conflict files. The good news is that a duplicate...

Re: Stop resaving when no changes are made

What specific evidence do you have that any saving is going on? A Scrivener project isn't actually an individual file (although it looks like one on the hard drive, but that is only because of an OS X feature that allows the internal contents to be hidden). Instead, it is really a folder (a special ...

Re: Reinstalling Scrivener - and no texts are displayed

Hello Birgitte, Opening a project and seeing only the binder structure without any content in the documents is usually a sign that you've separated the binder file from the rest of the project. As you may or may not already be aware, a Scrivener project is not an individual file. It is a folder (one...

Re: Using progress Bar in outliner

Hello lalsoong, I'm afraid that Scrivener for Windows doesn't support setting a target word count for the *children* of a folder. You can set a word count goal for a folder, but it will only track the words written directly into that folder's text area (which you don't generally do anyway). It will ...

Re: Newbie Questions

The dotted line that you are seeing probably means that you are in Scrivenings View. Scrivenings View is a mode that allows you to see several documents stitched together as if they are a single document. You generally wind up in this view any time that you select more than one item at once in the b...

Re: Scrivener & Windows 10

Hello Sparrowhawk, I've been testing Scrivener on Windows 10 since the earliest betas, and have been using it heavily on the RTM build of Windows 10 over the last few days. There are no issues with Windows 10. Scrivener runs on it exactly as it did on previous Windows versions like Windows 7 and 8. ...

Re: Formatting question

Hello Luke, This is a function of the "before and after" paragraph spacing. The default "before and after" spacing in Scrivener is zero, so where you are seeing a little extra space you've probably inherited some formatting from another application from copying and pasting. What ...

Re: Inserting Images in Scrivener for Dissertation-Project

First, make sure that the PDF's are cropped right up to the image. You should be able to do this by first opening the PDF in Preview and using its cropping tools (use the select tool [CMD+3] to select as close to the table edges as you can, then use the crop tool [CMD+K]). After you have done this, ...

Re: Save didn't save

My guess here is that the document itself saved, but because Scrivener crashed, the binder file wasn't properly updated with a reference to the document (since this was a new document). Examine your project by ctrl-clicking it and selecting "Show Package Contents." From there, browse to &q...
