Re: Can't see the font!

The font name looks indeed very small in the formatting bar, except when an iMac is used.

See the difference between Word and Scrivener :

When I use my Macbook and want to compare fonts, I use another software than Scrivener. My bad eyes...

Script mode pop-up window

This feed-back is about the pop-up window showing 'Scene Heading', 'Action', 'Character'... in script mode : https://i.imgur.com/M21lSQH.png In scrivener 2, the pop-up window moves in a jerky way from the left side of the screen to the right when one switches from one element to the other (e.g. from...

Re: Corrections not working in any case

I can only answer one thing. There is absolutely no need to put Scrivener in full screen mode in order to then go into Composition mode, as that puts you in Full Screen mode anyway. Indeed but there is a need to put Scrivener in full screen mode in order to work in Editor mode and then to be able t...

Corrections not working in any case

Using Scrivener 2, corrections I need don't work on every mac I use (iMac or Macbook pro 2017) and depending on which mode I work on (scriptwriting, Editor mode, Composition mode) : 1) Using French guillemets (that is correcting " into «) never works in scriptwriting mode (in both Editor and co...

Re: Alternate paragraphs

Thx for your reply. :) Let me rephrase what I meant. Scrivenings are indeed made to put together parts of texts. Very useful to move, add, remove (...) a paragraph or a longer part of a text. But the interesting part of a feature like that of Final Draft is the quickness of writing and switching fro...

Alternate paragraphs

Snapshots allow to compare two versions of a same document. A very interesting tool ! But I'd like to see in Scrivener an alternative way to keep track of text modifications : Final Draft 10 has a feature called 'Alternate dialogue' that allows to store within the same document as many variants of a...

Re: Auto Character Detection

+1. I was to make such a suggestion as I've always found this option so interesting in script softwares and dreamt to see it implemented in 'text editors'. It might be hard to implement for novels though ! Not a big fan of more markup (and down) in Scrivener. One thing to also take care are dialogue...

Re: How to turn off auto-capitalisation after question mark in dialogue

I'm French and in French, the issue of auto-capitalisation after a question mark or an exclamation mark in dialogue is quite important as what follows those marks are always verbs, not the subject of the phrase. So in French, you will write that : — Laisse moi ! dit Mike. that is literally : — Leave...
