Re: preview text file from outliner?

Thanks for these suggestions. All useful but none exactly fill my need. When I am in a crowded view with windows and columns set up the way I want them (but not showing inspector), I often feel I would like to do one of the following: - from the binder (or anywhere else for that matter), get a quick...

preview text file from outliner?

I'm getting to really like working in the outliner now - it is very powerful once you get it set up the way you want! Just one thing I'm finding I don't know how to do: when you are in outliner, seeing titles and synopses (along with other info in columns and/or in inspector) - is there a quick, non...

can label text appear on hover?

Hi - apologies if this has been discussed already - I did search but may I have missed it, perhaps due to using wrong terminology. My question is whether there is any way to have a mini-note (just one or a few words) that appears when you hover over an item in the binder? One application would be if...

Re: promote/demote binder items with tab?

Yes NonTroppo you are right - using Better Touch Tool makes it work exactly the way I want.
Thanks a million - and also to other contributors.

Re: promote/demote binder items with tab?

Thank you! Yes that does the trick for writing the tab key in the dialogue box. However it does not solve the problem. I think this is because the TAB key is already co-opted for moving the focus to the next dialogue box. So even after setting the keyboard shortcut, when you hit TAB all that happens...

Re: promote/demote binder items with tab?

Ha - so it is! Thanks I had overlooked that as the terminology is so different. It works fine in the system prefs panel except as soon as I type the tab key in the shortcut field, it just moves focus to another input field (its global behaviour)! Does anyone know if there is a way to refer to the ta...

promote/demote binder items with tab?

Hello I know how to promote/demote items in the binder, and I agree the existing shortcuts are very intuitive in terms of the system they use http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=37077&p=227487&hilit=promote+demote#p227487 . My problem is I am SO use to using tab/s...

Re: Option to autogenerate synopsis in outline mode?

Thanks so much for this. I did not know about the need for fixed line height to make this work and was looking fruitlessly for a command to 'auto-generate'. It now does populate the synopsis area with the first three lines of text - while also leaving the synopsis field itself blank, as you say - or...

Option to autogenerate synopsis in outline mode?

One thing I would find very useful esp in early stages of drafting is if the synopsis would update to reflect the current first lines of my document. NB this is different - I think - from 'autofill synopsis from main text' which seems to create a synopsis on the basis of current text, but not then u...

Re: more flexibility in pane widths?

Tremendous - that amount of flexibility in pane widths suits me perfectly. Thanks Keith! Bridey - thanks for the links. Sorry I missed them - I did do some searching before posting my request but must have used the wrong key words or something because I found only old and partially-relevant posts. A...

more flexibility in pane widths?

Hello. I'm yet another of your many fans absolutely loving scrivener 3! Thanks so much. A small suggestion that I would like to see if possible: Could you give us more flexibility in both the overall width of the window and the relative widths of the various panes (binder, editor, inspector)? I ofte...
