Re: Title Page Table Issue

Alright, well the top of that title page is in what is NORMALLY an invisible table. I'm not sure why your borders suddenly showed back up again. But here's how to send them back into invisibility: With your cursor anywhere with in that top section, click Format -> Table. Your "Table Properties&...

Re: Apostrophes disappear when importing .rtf files

Alright, I'm gonna play with a few things tonight, the smart quotes idea might be something. I do not use smart quotes in OpenOffice because it makes the word count weird. So I'm going to see if I can replicate this and figure out what exactly is happening. I also have a computer with Word in the ap...

Re: Crash on "Find"

I could not confirm either of these things. I can't get it to crash, and my find is snapping to the words when it finds them.

Re: Beta 1.4 - 'Close project' menu-item closes program

Check your options again, it was just mentioned in another thread that the check box for "Open start panel when there are no projects open" was unchecking itself after saving the options. This might be why.

Re: Up-Down Arrow Navigation in Binder Causes Crash

Does it always do it right when you hit the Research folder? Did you add any new files to this folder recently?

Re: compile to RTF not showing right breaks and margins

Unfortunately, on the known bug list, the compile formatting issue is still present. It has IMPROVED greatly. In the sense that it's keeping more of my formatting now, but not everything. This is what the bug list has to say on the subject: COMPILE DRAFT Double-Spacing There is no option to select d...

Re: Apostrophes disappear when importing .rtf files

I don't have word, so my RTF files were created in OpenOffice, I keep trying to get it to replicate this and cannot, so I'm wondering if it's Word RTF creation specific. There is always copy and paste, instead of saving as a .txt, so that you can keep more of your formatting (like bolds, and itallic...

Re: Apostrophes disappear when importing .rtf files

I just attempted my first .rtf import with the new beta and all of my apostrophe's crossed over just fine. Have you opened this .rtf file in another program after you created it? Is it in a unique font?

Re: CURRENT BETA DOWNLOAD (RELEASE 1.4)

Hey guys, so I was able to get my spell check back by doing a complete uninstall. In this case I mean not only running the regular uninstall but also going into my Control Panel -> Programs & Features and making sure that Scrivener was gone from that list (which it wasn't). After doing this I al...

Re: Startup Lag

By any chance, next time you open it on that computer, get a feel for exactly how LONG it is taking. Mine pauses. I will hit okay on the pop up and it will take a minute to open, but not a few minutes. I'm just curious exactly how long it is taking to open for you.
