A curious spelling 'help'; other spelling encounters

- I type "discusses"; it gets changed to "discusse's" (then gets marked as an error when "Check spelling ..." is checked in Corrections): The proximate cause for this is that I substitute "se's" for "ses". (The very abbreviated reason for this has to...

Corkboard Options inoperative, not working

Quick, informational note: This morning, the Corkboard Options pop-up box (lower right corner of corkboard editor) did nothing to the board as I clicked or slide whatever option. Being new (a month+ of actual occasional days or hours using Scrivener), I'd not used the options before. I didn't know w...

Re: Outline-mode editor functionality

Thanks, yes, I have become quite familiar with the step back into history, which does get me back into the outline. However, in my use of the back-step, Scrivener loses its focus on such an outline view, even though the editor's header highlighting suggests otherwise. The only keystroke way to get t...

Outline-mode editor functionality

Good evening (our time), I work from the outline mode in a two-editor arrangement. (Outline in a left editor; text/scrivening in a right-hand editor.) - I have found that when I merge two documents in the outlining editor, that editor gets changed to text mode, even when the outline is locked. While...

Binder/Outline-mode keyboard shortcuts

Hello, - In outline mode, is there a keystroke way to get back to a distant, previously selected document or container within the currently viewed outline (to a previous 'location'), as the outline's back arrow's tooltip suggests and as occurs in the Binder? Instead of to the window's previous displ...

Loss of focus in Binder & outlines (reposted from tech sup.)

Hi, It seems that just about every time I 'turn around' in Scrivener, I encounter another tool or functionality I will find of use -- so what I have here below is just a reflection of the depth of my preference for keyboard navigation, not only in Scrivener, but across the Windows session. - When I ...

Windows interaction: Taskbar & reboot

- When I close all my Scrivener projects, leaving Scratch Pad open, the Windows taskbar 'stack' of Scrivener icons is reduced accordingly to 'one' for the still open Scratch Pad. While it is of use that the pad stays open, its persistence prevents my reopening Scrivener projects by Win#. (I have Scr...

Re: Creating a template with formatting but no text

Yes, Kozmic, I've encountered the same issue (as it seems to me) with my attempted template having a Tab-indented first, blank, line. Such as: *TAB, Return* Dt: [newnote] ±±__ The "Dt:", [newnote], ±±, lines are each left flush; the new document's intended 1st line (blank) Tabbed once only...

Re: Processing Cookies (not Oreos, Fig, Choc Chip ...)

Thank you Katherine, Actually, had I typed longer ... 'registration' was to be my 'for instance'.

Windows navigation

:D

A single Windows Alt-Tab does not bring me back to the Scratchpad after I have (single) Alt-Tab'ed away from it to a Scrivener project or another open application.

Processing Cookies (not Oreos, Fig, Choc Chip ...)

:roll: Do I need to protect any software/processing cookies for Scrivener to work, on my PC or the site? (Other than to be 'remembered' by the Forum? ... for that, I'm in the habit of logging in/out of sites.) Merely checking: Though one might not know it from looking at my OS' cookie folders, I try...

Is there a way to mimic this in Win/Scrivener? (My "*" only brought up the documents with an actual little star (asterisk).

Re: Ability to Sync for Collaborative Writing Projects

Sorting by modified date in the outliner This is great news! For Win/Scrivener? How does one sort the documents in the outliner by modified (and created?) date? Does the sorting only handle the documents in a single container? Or range over the entire project ... or something in between? (It would ...

Re: Navigating the scrivening document stack

Yes, for the documentation. Thank you Briar (?). (I'd opened two of your pages today already, but haven't yet studied them.) And Shass, thank you. I will likely use Tools > Options > Keyboard (F12) often for the next couple or three years! (The filtering is great.) However, two observations: Ctrl-Pg...

Re: Frustrated with non-intuitive UI

I'll not talk about usability: As a newbie, there are already many different ways "I" would have done this or that, some driven by what I am used to in InfoSelect and some by what I would have insisted upon as an IT software manager/analyst before I retired: I just respond to three specifi...
