Re: Corkboard Background

Are you working in the Beta? I don't know about that, but in v. 1.9.7 it's Tools | Options | Corkboard. then there's a drop-down menu in the appearance section.

Re: Setting out story arcs and character arcs in Scrivener

I'd definitely recommend looking at the corkboard. I'm not sure if the Windows version can do it yet, but the Mac version supports both a freeform corkboard (not tied to a grid) and printing to physical card stock.

Alas, no freeform in Windows yet.

Re: Bad Image Error

You might supply some more details about exactly what you are doing to cause this error. The error message kind of looks like there's a bad shortcut involved.

Don't right-click anything. Just (left) click on the link Katherine posted.

Re: Having trouble finding old templates to add to updated scriviner

It appears that template files have the normal scriv or scrivx folder extensions.

Re: synonym dictionnary

Well, you didn't mention the French part in your original post. That would've been helpful information.

According to the WordWeb website, there is currently no French version.

Re: quick keys not working for audio control using external keyboard

Sometimes the spacebar provides this function. Have you tried that?

Re: Fullscreen background won't change

Just a thought - have you tried closing and reopening Scrivener? Sometimes these things get caught in memory.

Re: Keeping formatting when transferring from Scrivener into Word

Don't copy and paste into Word. That's not how you use Scrivener. Compile your project and output it in Word format.

Re: Keeping formatting when transferring from Scrivener into Word

Is there a reason you're not compiling to Word format?
