Re: Cursor Blink

An option to turn off cursor blinking would be much appreciated. It would help if you said which version of Scrivener you're usong, but it's there under Preferences > Editing on the Mac, and I presume it'll be there under Options > Editing in the Windows 3 Beta. I have no idea about winsows v. 1.9....

Re: Notes in Short Story Template

Thank you, Jim,

Works like a charm.

What I was trying to do is to open the Bookmarks from the top right dropdown menu of the Quick Ref window and create a new document from there, but, of course, there isn't such an option.

Thanks for your help,
M

Re: Outline complete; can I view it while writing the novel?

If I understand your question right you can Lock in Place one of the editors and View -> Binder Affects -> Right Editor . The two arrows button at the bottom of the Outline View allows you to turn on and off the Automattically open selection in the other editor pane option. This way, you'll have acc...

Re: [B43] [Bug??] Appearance of Index Cards.

The second image is not from an Index card but from the Inspector. The synopsis text area have margins around, which make the first line look taller. I know but still, I think this is what @rwfranz meant by pointing out the Synopsis. If you exclude the Outline View and those two places are there an...

Re: Replace not working at all

The column Main Plot is a Custom Meta-Data field, right?

Project Replace does not affect Custom Meta-Data fields.

The places in the project affected by Project Replace are listed at the bottom of the Project Replace window inside the Scope box.

Re: Replace not working at all

Project Replace should work in Outline mode.

Can you describe the specific steps you are taking when it isn't working? And post a screenshot of the Project Replace window so we can get a more clear picture of what may have gone wrong?

Re: Replace not working at all

For Ctrl+F to work, you have to have a single document open in the editor or a selection of multiple documents in scrivenings mode. Crtl+F doesn't work on the corkboard, outline views, or in document notes, etc. Check where your cursor is. As for Edit|Find|Replace , there is no such option. It's Edi...

Re: Text gets invisible

I've done some additional testing ( in Scrivener 1.9.16 ), and it looks like the OP is correct, and there IS a bug. As @JimRac reported, it manifests when you activate scrivenings mode on documents containing more than 9000 words. The text does not disappear, but its size changes to less than a pixe...

Open the Otline in split view and the file you edit in the second editor.

Re: Text gets invisible

There is definitely no such problem with Scrivenings mode. I tested it extensively, on Scrivener 1.9.12, and never encountered the problem you have. (It would be nice if you share the example project with everyone so we can test it instead.) What version of Scrivener are you using? Windows version? ...

Re: Text gets invisible

Probably the text has been copied from somewhere and still retains its original formatting and size. What I would do is I would copy it and paste it in a new document matching the style.

Re: "Edit with external editor" option

...not convenient to _write_ the text...

...very weak capacities to _edit_ the text...


What is this even mean? :mrgreen:

Regular expressions?

I think you're trying to use Scrivener as a tool for something that it isn't intended for.
Maybe you can try Joplin? :mrgreen:
