Problem Using Undo

I locked up Scrivener this morning, though I'm not sure how. I'd been typing in a document for about an hour and had been adding and deleting text all along. I was working in the last paragraph of the document, going between adding, deleting, and undoing (I was having a lot of trouble with that para...

Actually, I think this is a good idea, even if it can't be implemented. Maybe by version 20.2 Apple will provide tools to make this possible. Until then, we can dream. Edit: There is one way to "sort of" do this if you want to take the trouble. You can save the email as an RTF file and the...

The question that has always troubled me about the electronic age is what happens if (or when) the power goes off? Everything that isn't printed out will be lost. Who would be able to figure out what ebooks were for, and even if they had an idea, would they be able to power them? And how long would ...

I'll date myself, but my first computer was a Kaypro 2X that ran on CP/M. I've used DOS and Windows on multiple desktop and laptop PCs. I dallied with earlier Mac computers and I've even tried Linux. I'd probably still be in the Windows world, except that I saw an iMac and fell in love. Literally, l...

Fingers, I have written books that didn't sell, two that did, and more that didn't. What I've learned is that being published didn't give me anything I didn't already have, except a little more money (though not that much, considering the time I invested). I keep on writing because that's what gives...

I've been feeling awful that I even suggested Scrivener (and Keith) might not be 100% trustworthy. In truth, I haven't had a single qualm about losing work since I imported my first document. I can't think of another program I've felt so comfortable with, or confident about. Ever.

I was trying out full screen mode again and I noticed that when I returned to normal view, the cursor was whever I left it before I went to the full-screen view. I'm not sure if this is regular behavior, but it was disconcerting.

Sleep Poll

Now that Keith's gone, the Scriveners can play. This question has been raised in numerous posts and I have to admit a certain fascination with knowing the answer. Do I really want to trust my life's work to a sleep-deprived pogrammer? Now there's a question.

Does this mean a navigation change might make it to some future verson? If so, I'll gladly second and third the ability to jump straight to notes or synopsis. I have to admit that I also find the current keystroke combinations cumbersome, but I also know how hard it was to find any open ones by the ...

Hugh, welcome to the Scrivener forum. I'm assuming you made the switch from a Windows machine to an Apple. If so, I hope you'll find it as enjoyable as I have. I bought an iMac a year ago and haven't looked back since. (And that was even before Scrivener.) If you are new to Apple computers and could...

What I notice is that Keith is endeavoring to reply to every request and explain why it can't/might not be/maybe will be implemented. If he could stand to do it, maybe he should let people go ahead and post their ideas, but not necessarily respond to them. Or, if that sounds too cruel, just have a o...

The Psychology of Full Screen Mode

I've never used full screen mode and decided to give it a try because so many people like it. After spending a little time getting the screen colors right (well, more than a little), I opened up a new document and found myself staring at an empty screen. That's right. Empty. I stared and stared and ...

I've noticed another Serious Scrivener Bug: every time someone mentions a program or product, a new window mysteriously opens on the computer screen, taking me straight to it. Amber and Keith may say this is intended behavior, but I'm convinced it's an inherent bug in Scrivener that is resulting in ...
