Re: Not sure if this is a bug, exactly

I've no interest in monkeying with the registry for something so minor. I'd be hesitant to play around with it for something major. I don't usually go into the registry when uninstalling a program. If I am really wanting to make sure there is no trace of the program so that I can start fresh, I use...

Re: Not sure if this is a bug, exactly

I know. That is why I mentioned turning it off, then back on to see if the notification will display in a different position. And, in case I failed to mention this, I did turn it off and then back on. Didn't make a difference. Well, it was an idea. The only other thing I have involves completely un...

Re: Aktivate Linenumbers and new Page automaticly?

Scrivener has no pages. It is not a WYSIWYG. This is true. The OP could create a new document (the equivalent of a new page) if desired by counting the lines and pressing Ctrl+N when desired, or a Page Break (Ctrl+G, Ctrl+Z) if that works better for them. The latter is not the preferred way to do i...

Re: Not sure if this is a bug, exactly

But I want the notifications when I reach my session target. And I get that notification on screen. I'm not sure why this startup notification cannot be placed at a specific place on screen where it can actually be read, but I'm not losing sleep over it. It's just a little frustrating that a messag...

Re: Windows 2.9.9.9 HiDPI - Spelling Check Squiggly Hard to See

HI, using the HiDPI edition of Scrivener 2.9.9.9, the underline of a spelling error is exceptionally hard to see when in dark mode theme. In the default theme, it is better - but still not really visible enough to spot right away. There are two different styles for the underline. One is dots, which...

Re: Not sure if this is a bug, exactly

Just an FYI: This is still showing up partially off the screen in RC9. I still insist if a product (or a person) wants to tell me something, they ought to care that I can pay attention to what's said. In this case, how about putting it at the center of the screen? FWIW, I've never cared for the fac...

You are stuck with the new icons. There was a LONG couple of threads about it a couple of years ago explaining it.

Re: Project title & full name meta data?

For the life of me, I can't figure out where to edit the project title and my full name - basically the project properties. I'm using Anthony Johnston's comics template and it's referring to a menu that has moved somewhere else (Project > Meta-Data Settings… > Project Properties). I tried searching...

Re: Ctrl-G to access menus doesn't work

Well, I keypunched entries for a research index of periodical articles (with stopword list to attend to, etc.) onto IBM cards. 80 characters max per index entry, while including all significant people and facts, made newspaper "headline style" sound like Shakespeare. And make a typo (typi...

Re: [RC8 and previous] Program doesn't remember chosen layout

You could try removing the ui.ini file from the project's Settings folder (inside the .scriv folder). Removing the ui.ini file will reset the project's interface settings, but won't touch your global preferences. Does that fix it? Does this file get rebuilt when the project opens? If so, where do t...

Re: [RC8] No audio on MP3/M4A files

I found a longer mp4 (no audio) that allowed me to check the playback scrubber - it does move, but in fits and starts (jerky), even though the movie played normally.

Re: [RC8] No audio on MP3/M4A files

No luck there either, Tiho. Volume is all the way up in the editor control line and on my device (which I should mention is a Mac, running the beta on Crossover.) I've tried it with multiple audio files, both MP3 and M4A, and with the tutorial audio file "ThisIsBuzzAldrin". Position indic...

But if I click the first folder, then shift-click the last folder to select a range. then right-click on any selected folder, all of the selection markings disappear except for the one over which I right-clicked...
