Re: Comments not displaying (S2 vs S3)

Ah, mea culpa. I had outline mode set for groups. I think I didn't notice because of the improved navigation options and because there's a kind of fourth mode when using linked editors. I can make things work, but it can mess up the linked outline editor when clicking the Binder. I'll mess with it s...

Comments not displaying (S2 vs S3)

In S2, comments are listed in the Inspector for folders selected in the Binder and, indeed, the whole draft (scrivening-like). This no longer works in S3. No comments are displayed. Since I use this an awful lot – both at chapter and draft level – is there a method for displaying comments in S3 for ...

Re: Unwanted multiple selection forced; can't display single document.

I didn't know about that option. I just tried it. It's quite brutal! However, dead easy to get back to a working state now with layouts, etc. That brings a warm, fuzzy feeling of confidence. :D

Re: Unwanted multiple selection forced; can't display single document.

It's early days, but I'm still not clear which "navigation mode" I'm in at any time. Since I'm still exploring/playing, it's not a big deal, but sometimes weirdness happens and my way out is to Clear All Navigation Options and load my default layout.

Re: Chapters, Front & Back Matter Missing in Compile

A nice aide-memoire comes from Garner, who puts it thus: hyphenated as an adjective, unhyphenated as an adverb. Hence, "Once the log is brought up to date, we will have an up-to-date log."

Re: Smart dashes and Ellipses

The "smart quote" has got a bit out of hand. It's almost a em-en-dash now. I prefer to use alt+hyphen (and alt+semicolon).

Re: Wrap text

Ah ha! Thanks.

It wasn't working for me due to multiple monitors -- and an inability to track down the pref. It'll be handy when I'm unplugged, though.

How do you do this?

Re: Scrivener 3 Themes

This is very nice. Thanks.

Just a thought: It might be worth providing the preferences and theme default files with Scrivener.

Re: Find and Replace problem

:cry: I can confirm. Just came across this myself.

As a temp workaround: Replace All on both Entire Document and Selected Text work.

Re: Current line highlighting?

A black outline? That does sound more like a bug to me. As noted in my screenshot above, it should be fairly subtle. What are your System Preferences settings like, in terms of accessibility features? The problem is the border. I'm sure that's clear by now. It's got nothing to do with accessibility...

Re: Current line highlighting?

If the line around highlighted text is staying, then an option to vary the cursor width and colour would work for me. The block width and blink settings are in Editing: Options (bottom area), and the colour is in Appearance: Textual Marks: Colors, under Insertion Point. I use a 3pt cursor myself. T...

Oops! Easy to miss in 850 pages.

Could I suggest that section/chapter numbers are added to the ToC?
