Changing single quotes to double

Is there any way that quotation marks can be changed across a whole manuscript (or even a scene) from single to double without messing up the apostrophes in contractions and possessives. My reason is that Serenity Editor, possibly the best grammar and spelling-checking software on the planet allows ...

Re: A suggestion for screenwriting mode

Hi Keith, While on the subject of screenwriting mode, have you checked out the new screenwriting software Movie Draft SE? It's main selling point is its unique non-linear writing mode, enabling you to write scenes in any order!!! Old hat for Scrivener of course. But it does offer an interesting feat...

Italics Oblique in Microsoft Word

When I open a compiled Courier manuscript in Microsoft Word (2003 or 2007), all the italics come out Oblique, very false looking, and I have to reformat them to italicised Courier. This is no fault of Scrivener but is there any way I can get round this? It's a little annoying. This happens whether I...

Screenplay formatting

Hi Keith, I'm starting on a screenplay for the first time and feeling my way around though I'm already loving the way you've set up that side of Scrivener. Glad also to see you're using the American format with Letter paper rather than A4. My question is how you put wrylies in - those bits of text i...

Scrivener with SizeUp

I have the useful utility SizeUp on my computer which, like a number of similar apps, allows you quickly to move an app to half or a quarter of the screen so that multiple apps can be used side by side. I notice that Scrivener works with this when the Binder & Inspector are closed but if either ...

Re: Reinstalling Scrivener

Hi Keith, I reinstalled Scrivener having saved Preferences but have found, when reloading the Preferences, that my own Compile settings have been lost. I specifically named them Mike - Courier and Mike - Arial but they appear to have gone. Have I done something wrong? Where would they have been stor...

Reinstalling Scrivener

Hi, I want to reinstall Scrivener but am wary about whether all my preferences will be saved, even though I haven't created my own template. I just use the standard Novel template. If I use Save Preferences in the Manage Pane of Preferences will this save ALL my settings including the colours I use ...

Re: Project Session Target figure confused by cut and paste

Hi Keith,
Sorry, I didn't see your reply for some reason. Cut and paste add their own problems to the impossible task. What I'm trying to do is check the word count for any block of text I'm about to delete, mentally adding that to the sessions count for the day.

Re: Project Session Target figure confused by cut and paste

Hi Keith,

Yeah. I like that idea too. It's hard to feel you've accomplished anything when only the net figure for the day is shown and you've deleted a lot of text. But, in practice, I'm wondering how possible it is to actually separate the additions and the deletions.

Re: Shortcuts for Previous/Next Documents

Hi Keith,

Sorry. A new app I installed took them over. Working fine now.
