Re: Scrivern 3: Problem with Front Matter

I don't know if I am odd, if I am missing something, if I am doing things wrongly, if I am lucky, if my brain just adapts, or if my projects are super simple, but I have found the Scrivener 3 compile very easy to use (and Scrivener 2 compile as well). From installation to doing test compiles of an o...

Re: Compile: Where is "Quick Font Override"?

Thanks to both. Is there a way of knowing which fonts fully support small caps?

In the macOS Font Book, only Bodoni 72 Smallcaps references small caps.

Re: Compile: Where is "Quick Font Override"?

The copies of Helvetica and Neue that come installed with macOS are not typographically capable of using small caps, I don’t think, nor do they seem to have the glyphs or variants. I’d try another font that is close—Avenir Next has small caps capabilities. Isn't this Helvetica with small caps? Or i...

Re: Scrivener User Manual Corrections

UPDATE : Manual pdfs downloaded from the website and copy-dragged from the Scriv pkg behave likewise, correctly in themselves, but I can get the same bad result by making a copy of the pdf using Save As in Preview. The resulting copy shows the effects reported here. I am surprised Preview's Save As...

Re: Paragraph first line indents (in editor)

Hello As the Editor doesn't know if a given paragraph is destined to be the first paragraph in a particular section (even if it starts off as being the first paragraph in a new file or folder), it isn't able to style the paragraph uniquely on the fly. Compile can do this as it has the structural inf...

Re: Underline and Italics

Actually, italicised text should be retained in ePub 3 export - I just tried it and it worked fine. What is not retained is underlined text, and currently there is no way of setting it so that underlined text can be converted to italics. (This is a bit of an oversight and I'll look into that.) The ...

Re: Writing with multiple macs on a home server.

I feel more confident about going ahead with my project but was concerned that I might be missing a known problem with working off a local server. Hello, Karlos In my experience, text-dominated Scrivener projects have worked well over the network. Things have got sluggish when the projects have con...

Re: Writing with multiple macs on a home server.

I do this without any problems. The network needs to be reliable. Of course, this is not as fast as working on a local disk (especially a SSD). If a project gets really large, you can always shuttle it from Mac to Mac using your home server as a staging post: copy the project to the iMac, work on it...

Re: Possible to change highlighter default color?

This applies to macOS. Don't know if it is the same in Windows.

Click and hold the colour swatch to open the colour palette. Select the colour you want and Scrivener *should* remember that colour until you choose to change it again.

Re: Scriv 3, the Forum and the new 'Flatter' look

Find the forum font hard to read, particularly the punctuation marks, and miss having pinch to zoom enabled by default (though I know how to override the site's setting).

Think the site and forum are much improved in the main.
