RC15, Strange caret blink

When typing in the main editor window, I saw a strange artifact of the caret: as it blinks, the very top portion of it, maybe 15%, does not blink, but stays visible.

This does not happen in any other program that I run that has one or more editors.

Yes, that works, but it misses the point. When a dialog gets created, its initial location can be specified. That is what is missing from the Scrivener code.

RC14 - Dialogs not following the application's monitor

I work with three monitors. If I have Scrivener running on the left or right monitor and select Options, Compile, or other choices that bring up a dialog, that dialog appears on the center monitor instead of on the same monitor as Scrivener. Seems like the dialog activation should respect wherever t...

[LH4805] RC14 - Context menu location is incorrect

When you right click on the document icon in the bar just below the format bar, a context menu correctly appears just to the right of the icon. But if you right click on the line separating the title bar from the format bar, the context menu appears way to the left of the mouse click location. And i...

Re: Unable to Uninstall Scrivener

The free version of IObit Uninstaller sometimes can clean up problems like this, but be warned, IObit can nag you about things it wants to do that you may not want done. I check the "Don't tell me again" checkbox on those messages.

Re: Trouble exporting to MOBI

Instead of trying to click the AppData folder that you cannot see, can you just type AppData in the navigation box?

Not really. You need to turn on "Show Hidden Files" in File Explorer because AppData is normally hidden.

I believe that on Windows, the Windows key functions as the Meta key.

ToC (not eBook) (RC14)

From looking at some other posts, it appears that generating a Table of Contents for non-eBook projects is broken, but since I am not a heavy Scrivener user, the problem could be mine. Here's what happens. The ToC document in the editor looks like this: ToC_Editor.png When I compile to PDF, I get th...

Editing a list style

I have been looking for a way to adjust the numbered list style format because when I use the "1, 1.1, 1.1.2..." format, the fourth level is indented way too much by default. I experimented with "New Style from Selection" and "Redefine Style from Selection" but was unsu...

Re: Arabic spelling dictionary doesn't download

I wonder if this is a naming issue inside Scrivener. The dictionary appears as "Arabic-ar" in the Program Files/Scrivener/hunspell/dict folder after downloading, but the name does not appear in the Select list. And why is there no way to remove a dictionary except to go into the dict folde...

Re: Backup fails for sign out

Are you backing up to a cloud location? If so, that could be the cause. When you press Ctrl-Alt-Del and tell Windows to shut down/sign out, it starts with the user processes in order of their shutdown level, an integer between 0 and 1023, with the default being 640 (most applications use the default...

Re: Delete words from Personal Word list?

This is a bug.

The "+" and "-" buttons used to edit the list are under the left side of the word list, but they are not visible. The "+" button is on the left and the "-" button is in the right.
