Re: Right-click of document or containers

Thank you Amber ... that handles the situation. I realized after I sent the post that it is normal for even a right click to take the focus away from where it had been, but I was surprised by Scrivener's spending cycles on displaying a ~ 4.7 MB scrivening that I did not need to see before it allowed...

Right-click of document or containers

Why does a mouse right-click of an item open it in the editor? Not only do I lose sight of what was being shown in the editor but there are several tasks on that menu for which I'd not need to see the item's text. (I'd likely want to view my reference material in (an)other editor window, but given S...

Re: Use changing document (1st line) text as its title

I have seen that the trial version is the full Scrivener, merely time-limited to 30 session-days. (Or is it 30 non-consecutive days? :wink:)
Does this mean that the contemporaneous trial version of that update would not have the feature?

[Windows 7, 8 GB; Scrivener 1.9.0.0 (trial)]

Ctrl-Find dialog box positioning over the document

It would be ‘nice’ were the Ctrl-F Find dialog not statically plopped into the middle of the editor window. Too often, 'found text' is underneath it, out of view. (And even if it is not, how do I know?) Could the dialog move when that happens ... or remember whence I move it off-document, at least d...

Re: Remove 'invisible' character through selected documents

So, it seems that I cannot merely copy "xx" and the immediately trailing return (hard or soft). Reading another thread that asked a similar question -- copying text and its (italic) format -- I saw that Find/Replace may only be for simple text, that complications like formatting (and line ...

Re: Change inserted date format?

Thank you MM (Jennifer), Windows 7's Regions and Language 'Additional Settings' (Customize Format) addressed my use of the long-date format in Scrivener (now yyyy-mm-dd)*, but I still need a way to make this reference date stand out from any other in the document, yet have Ctrl-F6 be of use elsewher...

Change inserted date format?

It would be 'nice' to be able to change the format of the Edit > Insert > Current Date and Time (Ctrl-F6) result. Something less verbose; along the lines of YYYY/MM/... . (I'd precede it with a string* in my notes/documents so I could later collect them all by year, or year and month ... or day -- e...

Remove 'invisible' character through selected documents

I have a folder with many documents that need a particular character string with line-return -- "xx/" -- removed throughout. (I am 'looking at' the several documents in Scrivener mode.) I have copy pasted the string-with-return to the Find dialog and left the Replace box empty: Alt-A/Repla...

Use changing document (1st line) text as its title

I have 10s of thousands of notes etc. in multiple delimited, MB+, RTF files to get into Scrivener. I know that as the import splitting occurs, it will use some of the first text of the item as the Scrivener document's title -- fixed. I know that this has been discussed before, quite a while ago, but...
