Re: Auto-Correct

... a few years later ... Using Win7, Word etc. 2010, Win/Scriv 1.9.0 Scrivener's Substitution list appears to be in the Windows registry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Scrivener\Scrivener\Options\AutoCorrection As MM said, Users on Vista and Win7 will find [the Personal word list] file in “C:\Users\YO...

Re: A curious spelling 'help'; other spelling encounters

Yeh, I've known about you for decades :wink: Thanks on the extraneous character idea. Actually, I do/did just that in InfoSelect. There, there is a nearly universal 'x' at the end of the trigger strings to ensure the red-squiggly eye-catcher before the manual check: Singular possessives then likewis...

Re: A curious spelling 'help'; other spelling encounters

Thank you both. Hi, ... Personally I never use the auto-correct feature and have it turned off. I find it's a pain and more trouble than it's worth. Thanks Talktidy, Actually, your way is as I have my current (ie, pre-Scriv) software, 'InfoSelect', spell checking set. And for the sake of 20+ years' ...

Re: A curious spelling 'help'; other spelling encounters

And another instance of the spellchecker's not liking 'ses' in words--'responses'--which it changes to response's as soon as I type the trailing space or punctuation, whether or not I have "check spelling as you type" checked. (Which checked I usually do.) (I do not have "Correct spel...

Spellchecking Navigation, awareness, learning

It would be nice were the spell checking dialogue aware when it sat over the questioned spelling in the document, were to move aside. (I know that I can offset it on the screen and that it will stay/pop there the rest of Scrivener's session.) [Cross-posted in Technical Support] It seems that the spe...

Re: Spellchecking 'shorthand' translation

Supplemental Material: It seems that the spell checker assumes it knows all the correction possibilities for what I have mistyped. However, not only does it not likely know them all*, were it to allow me to input an unlisted correction as my current software does (and remember the substitution), I c...

Binder keyboard navigation; dragging from it across left editor outline; et al.

In the Binder, if I type the first character of a displayed item (folder or document) below the currently selected item, Scrivener seems to know my intent--to jump to that first-character's next item. But the visible selection does not jump thence, does not seem to jump at all. However, if I then do...

Re: Synopsis Preference?????

The auto-generate action is available in the synopsis in Scriv/Win 1.9: Does this thread mean it will go away come v3, accessible from Menu/Documents (or by "a much better approach")?

(I'm not complaining, having just discovered it, I've not used it enough to have a preference.)

Re: Customizing Tools —> Writing Tools?

I'll second (or higher-degree) this ... as well as sfosparky's other post on the matter.

Is the current (?) Mac keyboard shortcut (or similar) planned for Scriv/Win v3?

Re: ScratchPad Windows navigation

I found that Win+Tab is a workaround to getting back to the Scratch Pad after Alt+Tab'ing away from it -- Actually, Win+Tab to the Pad seems to work from any window no matter how many times and far away I've A+T'ed! -- Was this the Scrivener intent all along? Is it not a 'workaround' after all?! It ...

Spellchecking 'shorthand' translation

Is there a way to have the Ctrl+g&q spell checking 'translate' shorthand (acronymic, abbreviated) as it peruses the text? The Personal Word list ('Learn') will simply accept the shorthand's string; Substitutions will only work during typing. The spell checking itself merely flags the shorthand a...

Re: Outline-mode editor functionality (background)

The circumstance that started my thinking on this was when I used a Favorite Link to get to a CONTAINER while working in an outline: The editor's setting switched to doc mode. (Ctrl-3: I got back to the outline view.) What I started thinking was that it would be nice (for me :wink:) were Scrivener t...

Collection colors in the Binder sidebar

Collections were a big part of what drew me to Scrivener. :D (I think that the other three were: Scrivener's (compiler) output document flexibility; Its being an actively supported and updated Windows app for writing, my aging InfoSelect getting long in the tooth; Its reputational high standing, whi...

I am pleased that attention will be given to (keyboard navigation) focus: You've likely seen my posts about specific instances of its loss that I have encountered. :roll: Reading your note here, I'll resist posting about additional instances.
