dragging from Binder to Editor changes (or doesn't!) doc being viewed???

It's a stupid little thing, but I'm puzzled by a recent change in Binder Integration behaviour — and I can't work out what I've done to cause it! As it happens, the change is a huge IMPROVEMENT for me: fixed an annoying glitch that's bugged me for years. But I'd really like to know what I did. Now I...

Re: Links coming out differently-formatted in different docs — confused!!

Not sure if I understood you right, PSMackey, but fwiw your fix doesn't seem to be working for me. If I take a 'problem doc' where the default underline is annoyingly stuck as black, changing the font (in my case from Verdana to Georgia to Lucida Grande and back again) seems to have no effect on the...

Re: Links coming out differently-formatted in different docs — confused!!

Yeah. A bit like a broad spectrum antibiotic. I want T-cells. I'm surprised there isn't a bit of code floating around the OS biome that pinpoint-targets that underline-colour setting. But that probably just goes to show the limitations of the metaphor — and my fundamental ignorance of how the softwa...

Re: Forum's Stylish New Pale Font is Pretty — but HARD TO READ!!!

Woah, the cool things you learn by hanging out on forums. Fascinating glimpse under the bonnet here.... Just beginning to realise how much I've missed this way of life, since the boards I used to hang out on went the way of the last decade! (*grin*). If I were to narrow it down to just one, it would...

Re: Links coming out differently-formatted in different docs — confused!!

Ah interesting. Hence the balls-up as well of their font-colour engine, which is driving me NUTS now that I've been forced to abandon the old Word 2004 (which still used Apple's colour pickers). Obviously what I need for the underlines is a custom-built laser-guided missile for finding and destroyin...

Re: Links coming out differently-formatted in different docs — confused!!

And yes, I do tend to blame Word whenever I can

It kinda leaps to the eye does't it? (*grin*).

Is there really no way to get at underline formatting commands? How does MS do its voodoo then?

Re: Forum's Stylish New Pale Font is Pretty — but HARD TO READ!!!

Perhaps I'm in the minority, but I have the opposite problem. When the forums were first released, they used Effra consistently throughout. Because of complaints for legibility, the CSS stylesheet slowly got "contaminated" with fonts like Tahoma or Verdana as stop gaps. So I made a Stylis...

Re: Links coming out differently-formatted in different docs — confused!!

Oops, left the keystroke out of my instructions. Sorry! I paste the formatting: Opt⌘V, I don't paste any text.

(Editing that into my earlier post now...)

Re: Links coming out differently-formatted in different docs — confused!!

Followup to previous post. On the assumption there's no global fix for this, thought I'd share the best run-round I've found so far for the original specific issue I'm bothered by, viz link underline not matching link colour. My bodge FWIW... Set-up: Stash a word or two of 'good' text in the Scratch...

Re: Links coming out differently-formatted in different docs — confused!!

Hmmm, I may be misunderstanding you, but if you mean trying to change font colour (wch I do via the button on the toolbar rather than the Fonts pane, but I think it's the same thing??), I can report that this leaves the aberrant underline colour untouched. Grey, fuschia, chartreuse — the underline s...

Re: Forum's Stylish New Pale Font is Pretty — but HARD TO READ!!!

: ) Hadn't really thought of that. It's true that until upgrading to my new EvilMacbookAir, I haven't really had to think about this, b/c all my software was so outdated it couldn't run half the garbage on your average webpage anyway (didn't have a working flashplayer for years, f'rinstance). And of...

Re: Forum's Stylish New Pale Font is Pretty — but HARD TO READ!!!

The issue itself on the list already though, given the initial feedback threads posted after the new site roll-out. I had a feeling this must have been discussed somewhere, but failed to find it — my bad! I created a public Stylish theme that you can apply with a click, though it requires the brows...

Forum's Stylish New Pale Font is Pretty — but HARD TO READ!!!

Love the all-round look of your boards — it's refreshing to find such a stylish bit of design in a forum! — but feel I have to mention that for the failing eyes of the older user, this pale, spindly grey font is REALLY CHALLENGING. Not meant as a complaint, more in the spirit of user-feedback, becau...

Links coming out differently-formatted in different docs — confused!!

I'm sure there's an obvious answer to this, but it's got me stumped. I have set the default colour for embedded Scrivener links to a nice self-effacing grey so they don't distract from the text. (I did this via Preferences>Appearance>Editor>Links). Most of the time when I insert a Scrivener link int...

Re: True Aliases in Binder — a vital organisational tool!

hmmm. I thought I had posted this in the morning, but it seems not to have 'taken'. Reposting now, w/apologies for some redundancy in light of subsequent posts and an addendum I hope addresses them. Make more projects. If you drag material from one project to another, it makes a copy. That is, the ...
