Re: Spontaneous shutdown (close).

Yes, thanks JimRac; I intend to collect more data when this next occurs. However, since it happens now less often my principle concern is that I lost my Scratchpad notes even from hours earlier. (I do understand that there is an IT desire to keep the pad's background overhead low.) :( -- I may start...

Re: "No response" when searching

As the user expression goes, "It doesn't (seem to :wink: ) happen with other similar processes.

Biff, Your Speccy display shows the same core class and RAM specs as I currently have, though I am still using Win7.
(I am using one internal spinning 'drive', only about a quarter 'full'.)

Spontaneous shutdown (ie, crash).

This happens, but not often … maybe 10x in the approximate year I’ve used Scrivener regularly. S. simply stopped abruptly ‘yesterday’ (i.e., the day before I typed this line): I had been using the program about five hours and updated or produced 72 files (‘documents’, notes, synopses, one checksum);...

Scrivener's short-term memory

Thinking of an earlier post of mine about Scrivener's saving its index at shutdown for the next session of the project, to have that index ready for the project's next session… (Avoiding what may be only for me a several minutes' worth of waiting for my first Project Search to process (through a Win...

Re: "No response" when searching

:( Biff, The 'no response' may just be Windows saying that S. is off cogitating, doing RAM (memory) work. (I'll not go into the details here, yet *, but) it is a situation that occurs for me much more often than it ought given what I am told is a medium-size 'textbase' ^. (Though that is only about ...

Re: Window Colours Adjust

A very quick note, which may (or not) apply, due my being a Win user. As I understand it, there has been for a long time an app (third-party?) for Macs that can adjust the 'temperature' of displays as evening drew near; And that 'not too long ago', though probably at least a couple of years now, the...

Re: True Aliases in Binder — a vital organisational tool!

[Only a small emendation from this' (!?) original iteration; in the last sentence, a relativistic change.] I do appreciate Scrivener: It is a qualitative improvement over what I had been using (Info Select [infoselect]) -- regardless S.'s $100 cheaper price! I look forward to getting back into full ...

Inspector Navigation

Thinking of reducing my keystrokes :lol: :arrow: It would be nice were I able to hover a dragged link or text over the relevant Inspector button—say, References when the Inspector’s current displayed segment is Notes or conversely, Notes when Ref. is up—and have the Inspector switch to displaying th...

Re: How can I import / export / back up / restore the settings of Scrivener?

Biff, A quick paste of info I've collected or used: (Most of) the Tools/Options settings (F12) can be found (and exported/imported) using the Options screen's buttons, lower left: Manage. (I have early and often exported Options changes to a non-default named file.) As for various spellings (from my...

Re: Auto-Correct

Hey! The 'live' Spelling auto-correct does a great job :D -- though I'm still not used to it, not trusting enough of it to not go back over the text once in a while with a non-grammar/style -checking spelling scan! And ironically, I sometimes rely on its 'wisdom' too much -- intentionally letting an...

Two sporadic, yet undiagnosed, conditions

Hi, I've not situated these occasional events yet, but :arrow: When I Ctrl-’ into a single-editor view, the editor might have no header bar. When this happens, shifting back to my usual two-editor view does not restore the header to the particular editor: That is, shifting back yields one editor wit...

Re: 2 questions: Actual S. file names; PDF indexing

As noted above, thank you all.

So I'll close with the comment that ...
It would be of use—to me, in Windows—were the documents’ internal ‘name’ among the metadata. (Though I do realize its being obtainable would open the door to the possibilities of extra-Scrivener file tampering :roll: ).

Re: Identifying child documents (items) as such

Re: 2 questions: Actual S. file names; PDF indexing

Thanks Lunk. Yup, in some ways, we over here do have fewer options. And thanks Devin. I could use OneNote to organize and search the many PDF articles I have, but I'd rather search my PDFs (their content) at the same time I search Scrivener's RTF files, without always duplicating searches or decidin...
