Re: How do I sort my notes?

At the moment, the sort command is split into two separate menus; the Edit > Sort command functions on text within the editor to order paragraphs, and under Documents > Sort you'll find the options to reorder the binder, outliner, etc. These are intended to be merged into a single command under Edit...

Re: Issue with two screens and scaling

Thank you for the kind words! Unfortunately, the multi-monitor resolution issue is a limitation of the Qt framework's resolution and display scaling handling. This has much improved in recent major Qt updates, so we can hope it will extend in future to dealing more gracefully with a mixed resolution...

Re: What is "PDF Display" and why does it do nothing?

Yes, there's a bug here whereby the submenu is not displaying when a PDF isn't selected; it should behave in the usual fashion and show the submenu of options with those options disabled when not applicable.

Re: Creating text doc in Corkboard switches to editor

The behaviour will depend where your focus is. If focus is in the binder, creating a new text document will automatically switch to showing that new document in the editor (though focus will remain in the binder, ready for you to enter a title for the new document). If focus is in the corkboard, Ctr...

Re: V3 - Scrivener randomly freezing during start

When I started it with the logs enabled, it goes well up to a point after loading the fonts, then repeats the following error over and over: Critical: File: Line:0 Function:QSettings: RegEnumValue failed (No more data is available.) The line indicates Scrivener isn't able to access the registry cor...

Re: V3 - Scrivener randomly freezing during start

Based on the timing, it sounds like there may be some other software that starts up on your computer and is preventing Scrivener launching correctly at the later point. You could try booting in Safe Mode with Networking and following the same steps there to see if the problem repeats or if Scrivener...

Re: GUI display issues with Scrivener 3 for Windows.

Thank you for the reports. The first three are all on the list for the developers to take a look at, but I'm not quite sure what you're seeing with the copyholder behaviour or how to reproduce it.

Re: Dutch dictionary missing

Ah, yeah, the language options under the General tab are for switching the program interface--menu titles and such--using volunteer-provided translations, but these don't affect the spell check dictionary.

Re: Option for word-break

Thank you for the report. Is this a problem solely when writing in the editor, or is it also a problem when compiling to various formats or printing the current document? (I am assume it affects text everywhere but would like to confirm.) I'm not sure what options we have at the moment with the fram...

Re: How to open backup files with Scrivener 1.9.16 after Scriv 3 download

You can do this with both applications installed. Either launch Scrivener 1 directly and then use File > Open... (or Open Existing Project) to navigate to the backup copy of your project and open it in that version of Scrivener, or you can drag and drop the .scrivx project file of the backup project...

If the issue is just that the label colour is not currently displaying in the binder, selecting all the documents isn't necessary. Go to View > Use Label Color In > Binder to enable the feature, and optionally also click Show As Background Color In Binder from the same submenu to have the colour app...

Re: Dutch dictionary missing

Dutch is available, but for mysterious reasons it appears that it's being alphabetised based on "Netherlands" rather than "Dutch", so you'll find it down in the N section of the list. I'll put in a bug note about that. Australian and UK variants of English are also in the downloa...

Re: Compile-Missing text lines

Thank you, we're looking into this. In the meanwhile, you may be able to work around the problem by changing the tool that Scrivener uses for PDF conversion. If you have Microsoft Office installed, you should be able to tap into that to create the PDF. To do so, open File > Options, select the Shari...

Re: Text cut off at right edge of main editor.

I'm aware of this display bug when in Scrivenings mode (unrelated to fixed-width editor); if it is the same issue, you should be able to find a sweet spot of right/left margin padding and editor zoom level that will ensure the full text is displayed, though I understand you've already been fiddling ...
