Re: Open in Preview by default?

I do agree that the Print → Click PDF button → Select “Open in Preview” route is a bit awkward, but there isn’t much we can do about that. Adding a keyboard shortcut speeds this up, especially for any user who runs compiles to Preview regularly. No need to click and select once the print dialogue i...

Re: Cannot Compile to Word Document -- Scrivener Hangs Up

Hi, aliciavc. All rather perplexing as the alternative converter worked to compile the whole file (but messed up the formatting) and chapter five will, as you say, compile in isolation...both suggesting that there is nothing significantly awry with the file, although sufficient enough to cause a fai...

Re: Open in Preview by default?

Hi, John.

Not the solution you want, but creating an "Open in Preview" keyboard shortcut (used during compile) can speed things up a little and save unnecessary mouse travel / clicks.

Re: Cannot Compile to Word Document -- Scrivener Hangs Up

Hi. As another diagnostic test, if you duplicate the project (for a backup) and remove the images from chapter 5, does it compile? If no, it's not the images. If yes, add one image back in at a time until the issue recurs. Anything unusual about about the images or anything else in that chapter? Slà...

Re: Cannot Compile to Word Document -- Scrivener Hangs Up

Hi. Did all of your text originate in Scrivener, or has some of it been pasted in from elsewhere? You could try duplicating your project (so you have a backup), loading your entire manuscript in scrivenings, putting the cursor in the editor, and then choosing Edit > Text Tidying > Zap Gremlins. This...

Re: Scriptwriting Mode Keeps Kicking me into Times New Roman

Welcome. I am fairly certain that past iterations of the UK Stage Play template used Courier, but the current version loads with Times New Roman out of the box, which seems to go against the convention of using a fixed-width font for scripts. Presumably a choice rather than an error. Perhaps L&L...
