Re: What OS would you choose if you could trade right now?

Every answer you get to that question is going to be biased toward the respondent's favorite OS.... I've been a MS/DOS then Windows user ever since my first computer back in the mid-eighties when I was starting out in the magazine publishing field. I tried the Mac once, and didn't like it. I actuall...

Re: Anyone else using the BETA for their work?

I was halfway through my current book in the old version of Scrivener when I installed the 3.0 beta, and continued the project with it. My first draft target date is July 24th, at which time I will do a second draft, then compile it as a Word doc and send it to my editor. She usually takes about a m...

Re: Default style problem

OK I found the problem. I was in the wrong place. I went to format/ Style / Set default Formating and it was set to Calibri 13. I changed it to Times Roman 12 and Voilla!

Thanks everyone for the tips. I learned a lot from this experience.

... and you mean new document in the binder, not a new project or a new paragraph in an existing binder document?


Exactly

Re: Default style problem

I'm using the latest beta, and it works for me, so I have to ask: Does the font change applies properly in the preview box? Yes it does. I even tried changing it to Broadway (a fairly bizarre font) and it changed to Broadway in the preview box. But when I create a new document, it's not Broadway, i...

Re: Default style problem

As the title says "Main Test Style for New Documents" this is for NEW documents only.


That's what I'm talking about. Whenever I create a NEW document, it automatically has 13 point Calibri as the font, even though I have the default set to 12 point Times Roman.

Re: Default style problem

I've tried that. I changed the font in "Main Test Style for New Documents" to 12 point Times New Roman. But in "No Style" I'm getting 13 point Calibri. I've gone back to Options / Editing / Formating to make sure it's still set on Times 12, but I keep gettting Calibri 13. "N...

[NB] Default style problem

In Format / Style / Set Default Formatting I set the default style to "Body Text" . When I create a new document, it starts off with that style, but as soon as I hit Return (Enter), it changes to "No Style".

Is this a bug, or am I missing something?

Thanks,

[Suggestion] Compile for preview gone

I noticed on the Beta that the choice of "Preview" is missing from the list of output choices. I rather liked that option in the old version so that I could get an idea what it would look like before I commited to creating an actual document.. Are there plans to include it in the final rel...

Unwanted Chapter Titles

I just purchased Scrivener a few days ago, and so far I love it. I do have this one issue when I compile, where it places an extra chapter title in all caps above the actual title (which is in sentence case). You can see what I mean in the attached screenshot. I highlighted the unwanted title. I've ...
