Re: Apostrophes disappear when importing .rtf[BUG LOGGED]

Working in windows xp, I also lost all of my apostrophes with the beta 1.4 update. Every contraction I wrote is dressed with a red underline. I'm thinking if I used a little green highlighter here and there my manuscript will be properly dressed for the season. :shock: Thanks Betty A. Wait, your sp...

Re: Settings selected under 'Options->Editor' do not stick...

I've actually found that this is patchy, it doesn't always do it, you might sometimes find that after a reboot it will allow the options to stick. We'll get it logged.

Re: Directory properties definitely changed by Scrivener

Any files you want in Scrivener need to be imported in. I don't think you're supposed to be messing around inside the folders on your own. Because everything in there is now controlled THROUGH the Scrivener interface. For example, there were some maps of Washington D.C. I kept referencing for my lat...

Re: English Dictionary on German platform

There is some info about the issue on THIS THREAD But the important bit is the following. It doesn't matter what language you are typing in, the problem occurs on install because of the auto language selection in the install program. If you have a non English OS then Scrivener will not install a dic...

Re: Left margin for paragraphs

There are import margin issues still. But to get your margins back to whatever length you want you are going to use the ruler at the top of the editor. Use Ctrl-A to select all the text and then drag the top of the two arrows on the left side of the ruler. You can drag it to the right as deep as you...

Re: Text not saving

Each time you did this, was it in the same exact document with in the same project? Have you tried to make a NEW document inside the project and save it? Does it save ANYTHING?

Re: Can't install program

I'm getting suggestions to run the installer in Compatibility mode? I guess windows 7 has a way of rolling back and running things as if it was windows vista or xp. I couldn't tell you HOW to do this, but that was one suggestion. Another suggestion was to scan your hard drive for malware! I hope it ...

Re: Scrivener expired, although updated

@aqua-vitae - You actually don't need to open Scrivener to get to your project folder. Do you remember where you saved it to? The folder will be named "YOUR PROJECT NAME .scriv" and it will contain multiple other folders in it. ( How A Scrivener Project is Formatted ) This folder and it's ...

Re: Spellchecker - German

To turn off your Spell check you should click Edit -> Options to open your Options menu. Once there under the Auto-Correction tab you want to uncheck the box next to "Check spelling as you type". I don't believe foreign language dictionaries are not slated to come with the program until th...

Re: Can't install program

@pearlbear - Glad you got it installed. @Day- Alright, I'm googling that error and finding that it's happened a lot to other win7 users with other programs but no one lists a solution. A couple people said that rebooting 2-3 times and it magically let them install. I'll keep looking if I see anythin...

Re: Can't install program

My next inquiry might be into other programs running. Or if you've checked to see if the installer is running at all at that point that you've accepted the pop-up from windows using Task Manager and looking at running processes.

Edit: It said WHAT?
