Re: Sort Binder files?

I think that's why it's a feature of the Outliner - there you can sort by any sequence you wish WITHOUT affecting the Binder. The Binder is meant to be fluid and changeable, as much or as little as you like. If it was sortable it would - from what I have learned so far - run counter to the whole phi...

Re: Numbering chapters automatically

Same with me Dale - chapter names tell me everything I need to know. They can always be numbered at Compile time.

Mind you, I do have some OCD - whenever I move a chapter in the Binder, I keep a 'ghost' chapter where it used to be containing nothing but an Inline Annotation saying it's been moved.

Re: One-step highlighting

Thanks both, and yes, Silverdragon, that's it exactly: in Preview, once you enter the highlighting mode, anything you select is automatically highlighted. No extra steps. I finally decided that the closest I could get in Scrivener was to use Revision mode (in the Format menu) and just type a single...

Re: One-step highlighting

I must be missing something here. All I have to do is double click / click + drag / whatever, to select a word or more text, then click the highlight button ONCE. Agreed, you can't see it until you move the selection somewhere else, but that's the same with all highlighters everywhere - the text rem...

Re: Minimum hardware, OS reason for Scrivener 3

Since OS 10.14 promises to drop 32 bit support, I’m paying attention to the progress on this front. Not even to allow software to run in 32 bit? If so, that means no more early Mac emulation via Sheepshaver, Basilisk, etc. Not for me. I like my museum of Mac software that will all run on the same c...

Re: Minimum hardware, OS reason for Scrivener 3

You need High Sierra for 3 (unfortunately, for us Luddites) and any hardware that will run on - probably the same as for Sierra, but you can find out on the Apple website.

Re: problem compiling to Word

If the same thing happens when you cut and paste into a Word document, that suggests that the problem is in Word.

Re: Scrivener, High Sierra, and Backups

ScriverTid, I think you might be misreading my comment. Yes, of course the concept of preferences, as storing which checkboxes you click in different programs and such, are user folder things. I don’t mean preferences are system level in the sense that they impact every user account on the Mac. I m...

Re: Scrivener, High Sierra, and Backups

I'd suggest that those with this problem should set up a new user account and create a new test Scrivener project there to see if the problem persists. If, as I suspect it will, it does persist, then it's possibly deep level OS 'interference' causing the issue, and not preference files per se . I'l...

Re: Scrivener, High Sierra, and Backups

This is why I mentioned earlier it might be worth doing some system level cleaning since preferences are system level infrastructure. With respect, this just isn't true, unless it changed sometime after Mavericks. Until then, preferences were at user level not system level - except for a relatively...

Re: Corrections not working in any case

I can only answer one thing. There is absolutely no need to put Scrivener in full screen mode in order to then go into Composition mode, as that puts you in Full Screen mode anyway.

Re: 'Escaping' formatting

With a PDF, there isn't anything "below the formatted document." The PDF is a complete, self-contained entity. Your best bet is to put the transcription in either a separate document or the Document Notes area. Katherine It's worth pointing out that I tested my PDF solution (creating blan...

Re: Hyperlinking word to definition in the glossary

This attitude ticks me off a lot more than the absence of this feature. It's one thing to say that you feel that the value added by something isn't worth the technical challenges it presents, because you personally are satisfied with breaking documents in random places. But it's insulting and conde...
