Re: Setting the margins in the editor - having issues

The control strip you mention.....sounds great but I just purchased Windows Scriv 1 and I can't find that control strip. Maybe this is version terminology confusion. In Windows Scrivener v1, 'Composition Mode' is called 'Full Screen', and the 'Control Strip' is sometimes referred to as the 'Control...

Re: Reverse Screen - white type/black background

While the current v1.9 version of Windows Scrivener does not have dark themes, the Windows v3 version will. Windows V3 Scrivener is currently in beta.

Best,

Re: [NB] How to create a shortcut to another document in the Binder?

FYI, L&L responded to the bug report above. Not a bug. By design, the automatically created back-link is not automatically deleted if the original Doc Bookmark is deleted. But they did move it to the Wish List as a possible new feature. By the way, in case you didn't catch it in the manual, you ...

Automatic Back-links not automatically removed

RC5 After creating a Document Bookmark, pointing DocA -> DocB, Scrivener automatically creates a back-link from DocB->DocA . (Yay!) When the Document Bookmark pointing DocA -> DocB is deleted, the corresponding back-link from DocB->DocA is NOT automatically deleted, and must be removed manually. (Bo...

Re: How to create a shortcut to another document in the Binder?

It's supposed to be automatically removed, so I think you've found a bug, Tex. :mrgreen:

Re: How to create a shortcut to another document in the Binder?

When you create a Document Bookmark, a back-link is created in the target document, pointing back to the originating document. So if your viewing the Suspects folder, you'll see back-links in the Inspector. Same thing is true for Document Links, which I didn't know, so thanks for asking the question...

Re: How to create a shortcut to another document in the Binder?

Hi Tex, There are couple of tools you might be able to use to accomplish this. You can use Document Links to create links from text to Documents or Folders. If you want your links embedded in the text of a Document or a Folder, this is what you'd use. See the section of the Tutorial called Document ...

L&L is not saying when Windows v3 will be released. The only clue is we are at beta version Release Candidate 5.

Re: Setting the margins in the editor - having issues

..but despite that the bizarre stretched out composition mode is not for me. tarzan, In Windows Scriv (1.9 and beta) composition mode width & height are adjustable via the control strip that pops up at the bottom of the screen, along with Text Scale. So it doesn't have to be stretched out, if t...

Re: Best Way to Copy a Project for Editing and Keeping a "Master" Copy

And take snapshots of each document before you start editing it, that way 1) you have easy access to see what it was before you made any changes, and 2) you can easily roll back if you find you need to. And use Revision Mode (Format > Revision Mode) if it's available in your version of Scrivener, :...

Re: How customize these user interface elements' colors?

My understanding is that Mac themes are not compatible with Windows Scriv,

ETA: Confirmed in this post from AmberV, that Mac v3 and Win v3 do not share theme formats: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=293470#p293470

Re: Best Way to Copy a Project for Editing and Keeping a "Master" Copy

I recommend same as Krastev. Make a zipped backup, rename the zipped file to something meaningful for the milestone, and move it somewhere safe.

Re: Prompted for license reactivation
