Re: ! SERIOUS PROBLEM -- SCENE GONE !

Sometimes, as I mouse over an entry in the binder, it'll flash a menu at me, and when I click on something else, I have clicked on a menu entry. Especially if I do it at speed. I ran into this with a number of dialog boxes, and I commented on the issue (it's been a while, though). And sometimes I cl...

Re: How customize these user interface elements' colors?

Open it with 7zip. I used WinRar which worked like a charm. It's a Zip/Rar archive utility and can also open most other archive types in general. There are 4 files inside that are plain text. You can edit those. Yep, that's what I'm doing. I'm going to learn those 4 files' syntax with a little bit ...

Re: How customize these user interface elements' colors?

And hopefully, others will chime in to offer ways to change the background/foreground colors for the main menus and binder document selection highlight. Background and foreground colors for the main menus are changeable via themes, I believe. So far as I know, there is no other way from INSIDE Scri...

Re: Converting Win 1.9 to Win Beta Mess

Thanks Jim. Yes I have a 1.9 backup plus the word doc that was compiled from it so the original work is intact but not in the 3.0 version. I have been so anxious to get out of a years old version I thought I'd try it for the rewrite. I asked about data integrity prior. I converted from the lastest ...

Re: Language of menus

I am subscribed to Scrivener 1 (Windows), but I am slowly trying to understand Scrivener 3 and I have the beta version (Spanish). I have problems with the language of the menus. They have mixes of Spanish, French and English. Improve this detail or am I doing something wrong? I love this writing to...

Re: [JH] Custom project templates don't work?

Oh, I told you wrong. This error occurs if the project that the template is being created from is named in Russian letters. An example of this error is in the video (It's 5Mb, I can't attach it. Here is a link to onedrive: https://1drv.ms/v/s!Akkwdhbg6_eEhL06qh5qhvMb0T_TSg .) Did you repeat it? Yep...

Re: [JH] Custom project templates don't work?

I dl'ed the project sample, and was again unable to duplicate this bug. I set in project settings BOTH special folders, saved as a template, and produced several new projects with it. I tried this several times. Shifted to Russian localization (I don't read Russian, but by the places and the dialogs...

Re: [Bug] Extra space after "v" in Arial

Ok, so I can't tell if narrsd is being condescending in this post or not but I'm gonna hope not. Either way, this worked. I would still imagine that Tiho would want to know since it seems strange to me that I would have to use such a setting that I never would have been aware of otherwise. Either w...

Re: [RC5] Strange auto-correct behavour

The weirdest thing about this "correction" is that "Taine" is my dictionary so it isn't marked as misspelt in the first place! I could do a reverse auto-correct (i.e. change Taîné back to Taine, but I'm really more curious about why/how this is happening in the first place. Scri...

Re: Custom project templates don't work?

I tried to create a project from an empty template and immediately saved it as a new template. It still doesn't work. Just tried to reproduce this, but was not successful. What I did: After login, and the project creation/selection screen, I chose a "Blank" template. I added two folders u...

That doesn't look right. First it say what I'm supposing is Mar as the R is reversed and not May nor is it giving a day such as Sunday. :?:

Re: Custom metadata problem

I created 2 custom metadata fields, one called POV and one called Scene Location. Both are lists and I typed in characters for the POV and places from my story in the Scene Location. It does not save the data. Each scene within a chapter can have a different POV and location, but when I go back it'...

Re: [LH4315] Line spacing changes on copy paste with CTRL-V / After-paragraph line spacing shrinks

If I copy/paste a multi-line selection, the FIRST line pastes as 1.0x plain; the others paste as what they were. Currently, I have line spacing set to "1.0x 1.0/3.0". So pre-para leading disappears, and post-para leading disappears. But only on the one line; the other lines copy as they're...

Re: Very slow first startup of the day

You could try re-indexing the projects (File -> Save and Rebuild Search Indexes), but I think that won't help. Because the delay is before Scrivener has actually opened the project, I suspect the installation is corrupted somehow (not sure how, but things happen). Try reinstalling Scrivener? Downloa...
