Re: Question about "Floating" QuickReference windows

Cool -- thanks for clearing that up! Quick question -- can you set the QuickRef windows so the pulldown menu thingies aren't on it, making the border so thick? Can they be "hidden" like the ruler bars and whatnot? They take up a lot of wasted space, especially if you have a bunch open... I...

Re: Question about "Floating" QuickReference windows

Oh, okay, thanks! That's too bad, it is kind of distracting to see them disappear/reappear like that -- though they're definitely great for full screen Scrivener writing. There's always the scratch pad (which I notice stays on top of everything at all times), and the project notes (that stays open, ...

Re: Question about "Floating" QuickReference windows

Interesting... I just discovered that both the Scrivener Scratch Pad and the Project notes windows DO float while you're looking through another app or browser -- but the QuickRef windows do not. Is that how it's supposed to be, or is there a way to make QuickRef windows float while you're looking t...

Question about "Floating" QuickReference windows

I REAALLLY love the QuickRef windows, but I was unclear about this bit from the manual... QuickReference panels use the floating system attribute, which means they will hover over all windows on your system, including other applications. This makes them useful as collection bins while researching. I...

Re: Where's single space for Scrivener 2?

Oh no problem -- The tips were still quite handy--I got it wrangled eventually--! I still had an issue with a blank document tab not just saying "single-space" or "double-space" like the old Scrivener had, without having to reset numbers between paragraphs and all that. (Why a bl...

Re: v2.0, switch off horizontal lines between scrivenings?

I'm curious about that as well-- If forced to choose, I like the lines better than the grey and white -- the alternating shades were real distracting to me. But these lines are pretty harsh-looking. I wish they were lighter, light grey or dotted lines or something -- or better yet, the choice to hav...

Re: Where's single space for Scrivener 2?

Thanks for the tips! I still had a hard time making the preferences "stick," and I think there was something with the formation of tabs in the ruler bar that I was mistaking that made the line jump, but it seems to be working now. If not, I found that saving some single-space work from ano...

Where's single space for Scrivener 2?

Hi, Scrivener 2, MAC fan here... I'm having the hardest time setting the blank template to a simple single-space setting. It keeps jumping a line between paragraphs, even when it looks like it's about to type where it should on the next line. When I set the tab, it looks like it's going to type ther...

I apologize if this has been covered, but I can't find it in these forums --

--is there a specific time frame today when Scrivener 2.0 will be released?

Re: Binder on the Right Side, More Split views

I know what you mean about the purity of having everything in the window, but honestly, I've seen other apps attempt this, and it ain't pretty. Imagine having five or six splits of different orientation open, working out which one the inspector refers to, which one is locked and which isn't, which ...

Re: Binder on the Right Side, More Split views

Shows you how tech-savvy I am (not), I had to look up what HUD meant. (Still not totally sure)! It seems they're floating transparent windows (heads-up display)? Like the current notepad thingie? Interesting--though I like the purity of one open project window with multiple view windows, for the cle...

Re: Binder on the Right Side, More Split views

Awww, struck out twice! Oh well, I'll stick to my "fake" 4 windows (sometimes 6!) for the time being. (I tried using the "Project Notes" on the Inspector as a fake third window, but it wasn't the same. I couldn't get rid of the "Synopsis" and "General" collaps...

Binder on the Right Side, More Split views

Big fan, love the program, this'll keep me a Mac fan for sure. My own wish list (for 2.0 maybe?)... 1) Ability to have the Binder on The Right Side As a lefty, I would love to be able to put the Binder on either side, but particularly the right side. I don't use the inspector at all, but maybe other...
