Re: F11 no longer exits composition/full screen mode

It does on my install.
Does your machine have a FN key that toggles F keys and action keys?.

Re: (Beta 25) - editing to add any character/word in editor overwrites succeeding characters/words.

Thanks for the feedback guys. We will flip the Insert key functionality so that you always start in insert(not overwrite mode) as it was previously. Hope you can live with the current state until we release the new Beta some time next week, or simply use the Options to turn it off completely. Write...

Re: And here we were told Win3 would mirror Mac3

A Retry button has been added. ..... Mac has this Retry button too, so we have implemented one more Mac feature under Windows in the next release. So what you are saying is that even though Win 3.0 is supposed to have all the features of Mac 3.0 that this Retry button wasn't planned to be added to ...

BUG B25 - Dark Mode Highlighting can't be read.

Yellow highlight on white text unreadable.
I don't see a setting for this combination color setting in options either.

I had a screen shot, but system says board attachment quota reached.
Not sure I have attached anything so not sure what the reason for that is

Re: When using Windows Darkmode and Default Scrivener colours, some menu options are "invisible"

I run Windows Dark Mode all the time and run Scrinver in default theme, for now. I have not seen this. Besides a screen cap In the taskbar on Windows type WinVER and hit enter. There is version number to Windows 10 Most should be on 1809 or 1903. Make sure you include that number as Microsoft has be...

Re: Expirations on Beta versions

I agree with OP - that's over the top and I work in software development.  Guess what - pirates will always pirate and all Scrivener versions up until now have been cracked. I personally want to support the developers, so I pay up, In return I don't want to be treated with suspicion and patronised....

Re: Touch screen scrolling in Scrivener 3?

The ideal behavior is to allow scrolling the text area by using finger in the margin / outside the edit area. Word does this I think other apps do also. Also, I have been guilty of blaming QT. QT has touch support and has for a while. I expect them to hit Retail with near parity with Mac. And while ...

Re: [Beta 23] Scrivener On-Screen Type can Look Great

The fear of 4K has its place about 2 years ago, maybe unless you fall for all the Forbes clickbait about Windows 10 and are still trying to stay in Windows 7. Microsoft has been selling near 4K resolution Surface devices for several years. So that became a good motivation for them to get scaling rig...

Re: [Beta 23] Scrivener On-Screen Type can Look Great

One last note: If your text quality matters to you getting the best resolution for your screen your can afford helps. For writers, this should come before large SSDs/HDs, i7, or more RAM than 8GB. A better screen will improve your enjoyment of the machine more than many of the common marketing pushe...

Re: One more quick view of where we are without font anti-aliasing at present...

On another thread, it has been found by community discussion and testing that turning off QT Font hinting seems to work best on Windows 10 (probably any Windows with Cleartype turned on) it might be that two font hinting systems were fighting.

This is under Options> Editing

Re: I can't seem to get into the page view option.

Just tested it in B23.
No problem.

Close and restart.
Try a new document.
Then try removing and reinstalling.

Just suggesting from a background in software testing and general nerdiness in my life.

Re: [Beta 23] Scrivener On-Screen Type can Look Great

Thanks for posting this. Reading the orginal post makes sense. This feels alot like what happens when when in color management you get two profiles fighting. Odds are the QFont hinting is either fighting or diabling Windows Clear type, maybe it was developed before that. So turning it off might be a...
