Custom metadata value lost at autosave

This is maybe more just user sloppiness rather than an actual bug, but I was experiencing some issues of custom metadata values being lost occasionally and I finally tracked down the cause. If you have either a brand new document or a newly edited one that it is in an unsaved state AND you have just...

Re: How to protect an iPad Pro?

I've got a 10.5" iPad Pro - I use the Apple smart cover on the front and an Otterbox Symmetry case on the back. I probably would have just got the Apple case for the back, but for some reason they don't make it in the 10.5" size. I quite like that combo so far - doesn't add too much bulk, ...

Re: Scriv 3 for Mac: toggle visibility of audio and video controls

Awesome. Keith, while you're at it - any chance of adding an option for copying the current playback position for timestamps and such? It'd probably also mean adding a preference sheet somewhere to select the desired time format. That's the only reason I still use a different playback program, but i...

Re: Filter by label in binder and/or outline

You can search by Label. (or any other metadata you choose).

If you save your search as a collection, that's more or less your filtering as well.

Re: Select Similar Formatting - is it selecting by date?

The other issue: Select Similar Formatting not selecting beyond a particular session boundary is easy to reproduce. Start a new project, blank template works well. Start a document in script mode I just tested with the default ScreenPlay Format. Type a few lines, flip back and forth between a couple...

Re: Select Similar Formatting - is it selecting by date?

Still happening in 3.01 (966). Here's another example project showing the Style info not saving. Steps to reproduce: In the attached project, open the folder in Scrivenings mode Click into first text line of text. Edit | Select | Similar Formatting --> everything is selected because it's all the sam...

Re: can you compile one chapter only

Thank you friendlies. Unfortunately, each and every time I attempt a compile, the program hangs / doesn't respond. Try the checkbox: "Treat compile group as complete manuscript" in the compile dialog (note in V2 it was in a drop down, not a checkbox). In V2 I could never compile just a fo...

Re: Current line highlighting?

Is this how it's supposed to work or is it abnormal? Is the activation server going to get fed up with me soon? The instructions for running V2 and V3 without having to activate every time are in the Upgrade Guide: http://www.literatureandlatte.com/scrivener-3-update-guide (they're also on the foru...

Re: Compile to outline with metadata

Yeah, pretty sure the space after the colon is a no go. It's been a while since I set up that compile format (fortunately the important bits imported from V2), but IIRC that tripped me up a time or two as well.

Re: Scrivener version of User Manual

Make sure you're actually looking at one of the topic sections (Tech Support / Feedback / etc) and NOT the New Posts or Active Topics view, or an individual thread like this one.

You should see the New Topic button like so:

Re: Select Similar Formatting - is it selecting by date?

Heh, it is apparently a difficult thing to set up a demonstration of. I had a new test project which was exhibiting exactly the behaviour I described, but on a subsequent reopen of that project - it somehow sorted itself out. :roll: Meanwhile... I Import & Split a document. Used project search t...

Re: Resizing window not possible -- want to revert

Another thought - depending what features are needed it might also be workable to open the current doc into a Quick Ref window and then minimize the main window.

Re: Resizing window not possible -- want to revert

Turn off the binder and the inspector, and the fixed width setting for the editor, and you can still get it reasonably compact. Screen Shot 2017-12-07 at 12.32.28 PM.png Mind you, you'll want to save a Layout for this because if you turn the binder or inspector back on, the window will grow to accom...

Re: Select Similar Formatting - is it selecting by date?

Okay, here's some screen shots of what I'm seeing. The Lipsum text I put in yesterday, the English I quickly typed in this morning. All of it is in script mode just alternating back and forth between two script elements. As you can see Select Similar Formatting won't select past the the date line in...
