I tried setting the text margins to 0 and don't see any white lines at 90% or 110%, so this seems to have solved the problem. Good news! I did try changing font sizes, rather than zoom, and found that I had trouble reading text at 12 and even 13 pt. sizes (too small for my eyes). Going to larger poi...

If it's an Apple problem, I understand. Some things we just live with. I did look at the earlier posting about the problem and it seemed you weren't sure about the cause at the time, so that's why I'm following up here. For what it's worth, I checked the file at various screen magnifications and fou...

Change Key Combinations for Navigate Views?

I'm finding the three-key combination for navigate views awkward (opt-cmd-shift JKLI). Could the shortcuts be changed to control JKLI? Possible problems: ctrl-K seems to delete to end of paragraph in both Scrivener and Text Edit, but I can't see this command listed in the menus of either program. Is...

White Lines Through Text

I am seeing white lines through a row of text when scrolling down a file using the scroll bar or the scroll wheel on the mouse. The problem starts about 1/3 of the way into your ReadMe file, if that helps you identify how far I have to go before I have the problem. It seems to happen more often as I...

Actually, I'm beginning to like the date format the way it is, so no problem.

Thanks,

Font Change When Inserting Date/Time

If I start a new document and the first thing I do is insert the current date/time from the edit menu, the font used is Helvetica, even though Courier is the default font set in preferences. Helvetica stays set for all subsequent typing. If I type a word or two before inserting the date, the inserte...

Thanks for all your help, Keith. I really appreciate it. And now that you found the problem, I do remember deleting the synopsis from one or two files where'd I'd just played around and put in something meaningless so I could see how it showed up in outline view. I also managed to get the system pre...

A follow-up note: I went back to my project and moved the file that caused the problem back to it's original place. I either renamed it before or after the move (sorry, I can't remember which now). Then I tried moving the file back up to the group where it had been and managed to get the spinning ba...

I'm using version 1.0 RC b.2 and I used the mouse to drag the file up.

This thread really is interesting. I usually work chapter by chapter, starting at the beginning and working through to the end (totally linear). After reading the discussion above, I'm beginning to think there might be better ways to go about the process. One example: I started off using the horizon...

This is regarding the problem in which one document starts taking the name of another when you click on it - at least, I think that's what the thread is talking about. I had this happen and couldn't figure out what was going on. I played around with it this morning and finally discovered what I thin...

Afer A Week

I've been trying Scrivener out for the past week and wanted to let you know how impressed I am with the program. What an amazing amount of thought and effort has gone into your work. I have always used traditional word processing programs and it is such a pain to have to keep multiple files open and...
