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

Hi, (I remember that I wasn't going to mention 'loss of focus' issues again ... except when I encountered new cases mostly daily and more often, or 'importantly'.) - In the Binder, import-splitting a file: Once the import is complete, the focus is lost until I Ctrl-Tab around (or of course, I 'click...

Re: Problems with Manual Download

Thank you Graybyrd,

I saw that, even downloaded it etc., but I wasn't sure that it served double duty, (full featured) demo (about which I knew) AND the routine version .x update.

Thx! I guess sometimes I can be too much a literalist.

Re: Editing links

Thank you Ioa, The forum link was merely an example because both the URL and the likely 'human' title would be visible to my post's reader; my interest is per that of the OP as I understood it, a web page/link in a document. Once I've pasted a link into a document, I don't see that Menu-Edit ... or ...

Re: Editing links [the link's displayed title/name]

Hi as well (a few years later), In my searching, I did find the link box, but how do I change the displayed URL to a more human-friendly name for the destination? From, say, "www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/posting.php?mode=reply&f=30&t=18113" to "Editing links"? If I ov...

Thank you Graybyrd; What is the address of the (manual) "L&L download site"?

Miscellany: Spellchecker; footnote/annotations

- In the Spellchecker: Smart Quotes seems to issue a closed quote/apostrophe after an opening paren despite that is not the end of a quote, remark, but (usually) is rather marking such things about to begin. (Likewise, em-dash ...) Is this the intent? - From the Editor, is there a keystroke way to g...

Binder Navigation, automatic and keyed

- When I move a document via Menu > Document > Move > To > ... [keyed], the Binder's apparent focus goes with the document (though the action-focus is lost until I Alt-Tab). Is this the intent? (In my general use of moving things, I'd rather stay in the vicinity of the where the item was, not where ...

Re: Default input highlighting? How do I stop it.

:) I found it: F12 > Editor > Default Main Text ... . The color hint for text highlighting was masked to me by the window's 'selected text' highlighting. (Something else on the format bar: When the Tutorial is talking but formatting the font in Compile, it refers to the 'A' on the bar with no distin...

Default input highlighting? How do I stop it.

When I usually start a new document, my typed input is highlighted: I know how to get rid of highlighting, but how do I stop it? I suppose that it comes from a default (preset) for new documents, but I do not know where that is controlled or defined. What I want across the project for my usual input...

Re: Binder Research folder hangs most times I deal with it.

I have found that the 'hang inconvenience' project size FOR ME is about 500 MB. But I am still making the transition to Scrivener: My building project * is already just short of 1 GB, most of which is unchanging reference material, either PDF or TXT. (I routinely take out the Trash. :( ) *Substantia...

Project search string box

- Project searching is something I do often: It would be nice were Ctrl + Shift + O keyword dialogue searches to not use the Ctrl + G, Ctrl + S * project search functionality destructively. For instance, when I search for a project keyword from the dialogue, it changes the project search's type to K...

Re: Binder Research folder hangs most times I deal with it.

I accept that qualitatively, the hang (aka, very long response delay) has some to do with my 5-year old i5 PC chip and with my container organization of the data in Scrivener, and much to do with less-rather-than-more RAM state (8GB): Both the technical stuff will be addressed soon (the RAM likely t...

Binder/Outline Document relocation

Emendation of OP: The sliding outline I report below happens apparently any time something is dragged across its editor window, left OR right, eg in dragging a to-be-linked item from the Binder across a RIGHT outline editor to the reference section of the Inspector. - In the Binder or an Outlining E...

Re: Keystroke navigation: Editor; Import/Split

Thanks for keeping me 'honest' tiho_d :wink: [Containing a minor update edit to my second post here, re 'ought'] Yes, Esc/Alt+F4 will get me out of the "Import And Split" dialogue/popup (even from within its split delimiter box). However, leaving the dialogue by either of these keystrokes ...

Keystroke navigation: Editor; Import/Split

- Ctrl+Shift+Space is a nice navigation aid for the editor, but the key-combo not only returns me to the insertion point (cursor), it also actually inserts a space there. Re Import/Split: - I can get into the split-text delimiter box via keystroke, but apparently cannot leave it that way. (It would ...
