[LH2962] RC11 HiDPI: fit page & fit width greyed out

Hi,

When trying to zoom, I note that both 'view->zoom->fit width' & 'view->zoom->fit page' are greyed out - is that expected? I was hoping to set zoom to 'fit width', to avoid manually zooming when changing between my Surface Pro 5 screen and an extended monitor.

Thanks

Re: How to change template

Thanks for the info, that's good to know. At this point, its probably easier for me to create a new project and drag the first chapter files into it.

How to change template

Hi, I've started a new novel in and started the first chapter, but now find that I chose the wrong template when I created the project. Is it possible to load in a different template over the top, or do I need to create a new project? I checked the menu and manual, but couldn't find anything obvious...

Re: RC 11: Can't press enter in the cork board editor

That was it, thanks very much.

Windows version 1.99 has a similar setting "Return ends editing synopsis in corkboard and outliner views", but the setting is defaulted to off. Maybe, to avoid confusion, it should also be defaulted to off in 3.0 beta.

Thanks

RC 11: Can't press enter in the cork board editor

I've just started outlining a new novel in Scrivener RC11. When I press enter for a new line in the corkboard editor, it jumps out of the editor. No blank line/carriage return,. I've just tried the same on Scrivener 1.99 and I can get as many blank lines as I want when typing into the corkboard edit...

Re: Making Writer’s Block Work For You

I've been lucky enough never to have had a block that's made me give up a draft. Most of my blocks come from not fully understanding a character's motivation for a particular action. I usually spot it during read through, wondering why he/she did that. It's usually easy to fix, but sometimes, if it'...

Re: RC10: Spacing after intial cap (PDF output)

I set line spacing in the 'section text' layout to exact, but that increased spacing between the first and second lines. The style is character based, therefore doesn't support spacing. I am stuck for ideas. The best I can do is reduce the font size, which makes the gap less obvious. I use the same...

Re: RC10: Spacing after intial cap (PDF output)

I would suggest that the extra spacing between the first two lines is space created by that large first letter. The vertical space needed by a font must include the space required for the descenders in glyphs like "g", "p", "y" etc., so even though the uppercase T does...

Re: RC10: Spacing after intial cap (PDF output)

Thanks. Yes, that's the reason. The fix, at least in Word, is to set line spacing to 'exact'. But I've not been able to get it working in Scrivener yet.

Re: Backup fails for sign out

You will have much less trouble if you close your programs before signing out of your computer and expecting Windows to clean up after you. Guys, this is a beta test, I know you shouldn't do it like this, but Scrivener should be able to handle such user actions in a safe manner, especially when it'...

RC10: Spacing after intial cap (PDF output)

Hi, I am not versed in typography, so don't know whether this is an issue or just my setup. I start my chapters with an initial cap - I created a 'first letter' style in scrivener, imported it into the compiler and set the character style/size. But when the manuscript gets compiled, there is extra s...

[LH4699] RC 10: HiDPI ">>" doesn't show last option on toolbar.

Hi, I was on the compile screen and wanted to use the spacing option from the toolbar. The dialog wasn't full screen and showed the >> (more) option. I pressed the ">>" button and it displayed "Align right, Text Color and Highlight Color, but not spacing, which would be the last icon ...

Re: Bug: "Replace All" with "whole word" replaces partial words

Presumably this is a manifestation of the same bug I reported for Project Replace, where 'whole word' matches partial words. I don't remember that ever being officially acknowledged with a bug no.

RC10: Session target problem

Today I saw a problem with session target, set to 2000 words. I wanted to write ~1000 words in the middle of a scene. Rather than just typing them in, I first split the scene by moving the final two-thirds into a new file (about 1.7k words). The 2000 word target pop-up came up after I wrote ~300 add...
