RC12 bad_alloc error when attempting to change font using pull down menu.

This error [std::bad_alloc bad array new length] now pops up when I try to change the font of a selected portion of text in the editor using the pull-down menu. When I then go through Format | Font | Show Fonts menu or using F4 I am able to without issue. Since I don't have a box to test this under ...

Re: RC11: There Is No Vertical Scroll Bar in Scrivenings Mode

This seems to be a new bug in RC11. I never saw it happen in the previous Betas. Is this peculiar to the HiDPI version or is it also present in the standard version?

Re: Major Milestone

I'll also add my agreement. I don't know when the last time I fired 1.9.x. I use Scrivener almost every day as my primary writing tool. It's open more than my web browser (and I write historical novels, so I'm constantly doing research!). The product is solid -- more so than a lot of SW I've beta'd ...

Re: RC11 - Compile problem (Wine on Ubuntu)

I just tested this on both my Mint 20 and my Fedora 32 installs. I was able to compile to ODT without issue.

Re: Is there a grammar check in Scrivener for Windows?

You can add third party grammar checkers like Grammarly. Grammarly claims that it has a desktop app that will work with other desktop apps.

If I ran Windows I would definitely try it -- but alas Grammarly doesn't have the same for Linux.

Edit Substitutions in Options.

With each new Beta and RC I lose my customized substitutions (File | Options | Corrections | Edit Substitutions). Where are these stored so I can copy them, but not options like the theme. I know themes get updated frequently, and those I want to test, so saving and importing the entire options file...

[LH305] Compile difference between .rtf & .odt output (2.9.9.7)

When the same project, newly created in 2.9.9.7, is compiled using the same template in .rft and .odt formats, the standard manuscript header <$surname> / <$ABBR_PROJECTTITLE> / <$p> is not included in the .odt output file whereas it is in the .rft file. No change was made in the template other than...

Re: [BUG] with double-click selection

No, This is a problem that exists. Double-clicking "said" to change it will grab the quotation marks as well. I've seen this in French, German, and English with both double- and single- quotes.

Re: Custom project templates don't work?

I 've just created two new templates, created projects with both; as well as converting an old template and used it to create a new project. All have worked without issue.

I don't have any suggestions, just reporting what I've done since RC5 was released.

Re: [RC5] Crash when opening two Scrivener files at the same time

Check what else is running on your machine when you open the projects.

Last night I had three large projects open at once in RC5 and had no difficulty.

Re: Dragging text from one paragraph to an empty line loses paragraph formatting

I see this same thing happen in RC4. The only way to prevent this is with a CTRL+SHIFT+V, which is fine if I don't have specific formatting for the text I'm trying to move.

[LH305] Compile to ODT doesn't create Header in RC 4

I compiled my WIP using the Times Roman Manuscript template to .odt and opened it with LibreOffice. There is no header. However, when I compiled to .rtf, .docx, and .doc formats using the same manuscript template the standard header of <$surname> / <$ABBR_PROJECTTITLE> / <$p> do appear as expected.

Re: [LH4021] BETA 31 Copy from Scrivener to Word Processor doesn't paste format

Scrivener does not appear to populate the Rich Text clipboard on copy, and some word processors may still rely upon or prioritize the RTF, thence falling back upon the plain text clipboard rendition. Word processors like LibreOffice? Exactly my point. Not everyone uses Word. I know we end up being ...
