Hope there will be a "Release Candidate" beta as well, with a last call for beta testers to remind the team of any lingering anomalies they may have missed.

Re: [LH4431] Modifying "quick access colors" for text/highlight color pickers in dark mode?

Maybe this will be clearer once I install AutoKey - but how do I figure out what letters to use (!r h s etc...) Is there a document you're going off of for this? The "sends" are just keystrokes into Scrivener's menu system. A key with an exclamation mark (!r) is an Alt keystroke. So to se...

Re: [LH4431] Modifying "quick access colors" for text/highlight color pickers in dark mode?

Is there a way to change those quick access colors? OR - could I assign hot keys to different highlight or text colors? Hi Abby - I'd recommend AutoHotkey for this and a hundred other Scrivener customization tasks. Here's the routine I use to set a preferred highlighting color: SetHighlightColor: W...

Re: Can one open the same project in two windows / instances?

I just want to always have the outline view(s) and when I click a doc / folder in the Binder I do not want the outline view to be automcatically turned to the doc view.or another one. So I activate the outline view, I click a doc in the Binder and the outline view changes to another view. So I have...

Convert Text to Default Formatting enabled with no document selected

Hi - The Convert Text command should really be disabled when there's no document selected, because otherwise there's no dialog prompt and no operation, and the user is left to wonder what just happened. Particularly if they're seeing multiple documents selected in the binder sans focus. ConvertDocNo...

Re: Multi-document select all

Even more "Ah!"s - focus leaves the binder at >=3 files being selected. And at this point, I'm so far removed from my original bug question I feel like I should ease away from the forums... Mike actually I'd say you have indeed unearthed a bug, so you've already made a real contribution t...

Re: Multi-document select all

Looks like that only works for two documents at a time though? When i tested, if I selected two documents the convert dialog appears, if I select three or more documents it just never generates the convert dialog. Hi Mike - If you're not getting the convert dialog, chances are excellent that your f...

Re: Multi-document select all

Yep, that works for one document. But when you have sixty documents, it is currently easier to load it on a Mac and do it than try and do it in windows. FWIW, although I used font changes as an example, other example uses include being able to spell check select documents, etc. No, the technique wi...

Re: Multi-document select all

Can't speak to the development plans, but there's no need to effect a multi-doc font change piecemeal in the Beta. We can select our target docs in the Binder, run Documents > Convert > Text to Default Formatting and then at the prompt check Convert Font Only . Of course we'd first change the defaul...

Re: Print outline

What I am wanting is to be able to print the outliner screen including my Meta columns. Even if we could just get the title, label and status I would be jumping up and down happy. For me this all about the revisions stage. I want a list of the sections I am 100% happy with, sections I still want to...

Re: [Suggestion] Option to change sort order on writing history

Do the columns sort in the Mac version when you click on column headers? I think the Windows Beta 40 behavior can actually be reported as a bug rather than just as the basis for a suggestion. The column headers give visual feedback when clicked, as illustrated below, but there's no corresponding act...

[LH4356] B39: Dragging docs from another project into Outliner View does not update the pane.

Hi - If we display a folder and its subdocs in Outliner View, and drag some documents into the pane from another open Scrivener project, the Outliner display will not be updated even if the import is successful. This bug is new in Beta 39. OutlineDrag2.png 1. I just dragged documents 11051 and 11052...
