Dog ear, or reading progress mark

I find myself wishing for a way to mark the exact place I've reached when reading my manuscript, like a dog ear, so I can pick up reading/editing where I left off. Bookmarks are not the solution here, it would seem. I'd like to ba able to mark a sentence for this purpose.

Footnote and comment font size are off

I'm probably overlooking the obvious, but I can't seem to get predictable and consistent font sizes for comments and footnotes in the Scrivener interface (I'm not talking about output). Please refer to attached green shots (they're at the same scale). The font size in the inspector is fine now, but ...

Re: Are Scrivener's Dropbox permissions too permissive?

Only Scrivener for iOS needs specific permission to connect to Dropbox. Scrivener for Mac or Windows simply write to the hard drive of the local machine, and if the folder it's writing to happens to be inside the folder that Dropbox's software is monitoring, then it will get synced, even without sp...

Are Scrivener's Dropbox permissions too permissive?

I noticed that Scrivener has permissions to access any file in my Dropbox. I would prefer to see this limited to the Scrivener folder, for obvious reasons. Would that be possible? Incidentally, it seems the access isn't used at all, which is odd, given that I am synching through Dropbox all the time...

You are correct, the merge state is preserved. Too bad about the full screen state, but, as I think US teenagers used to say, no biggie.

Honour the window state of re-opened projects

Having chosen to 'Reopen projects that were open on quit' (in Preferences > General > Startup) I would be pleasantly surprised if, in a future update, reopened projects would appear in full screen and merged if that's the state they were in before. When using the Automatic Quit feature a lot to prev...

Expand stacks of documents with multitouch gesture

I found myself trying to dig down into a stack of documents on the corkboard using the 'unpinch' (I don't know how it's officially called) gesture on my trackpad.

Re: Good program horrible support

I used Scrivener for a long while. It helped to organize a complex project that i was working on at the time. Since then, my Windows os crumpled and i started using linux. I finally return to Windows, and was very excited to jump back into using Scrivener. But when i searched, i could find no recor...
