Re: How to configure autonumbering to begin with zero rather than one.

The next best solution I can think of is to create a special Section Type for the Fool, and assign it to a layout that has "Chapter 0" typed in as regular text. Then the following chapters using the regular Type get the <$n> placeholder, and thus pick up counting at 1. It's a bit more setu...

Re: Conspicuous Link to Current Release Notes Please !!!

They are linked from the main product page, at the very bottom, near the download/buy buttons, as "Release Notes", in bright red. They are also linked to from the main download page as "Previous Versions", since that is where you can downgrade to the previous version if need be. ...

Re: Windows 3 How do I open existing Scrivner projects?

The user manual has detailed instructions for recovering from a backup, in §5.2.3, Restoring from Backups . It’s really super straight-forward though if you’ve ever used a zip file before to extract the contents of the zip. That said, unless you did some aggressive spring cleaning, all of your old p...

Re: Can You Circle Text in Scrivener 3 for MacOS?

Your best bet would be to use a style for this type of emphasis while writing, and leave the special formatting for after you compile. I presume in Word you could then just modify that style to include the border line and everything would be fixed up in one move.

Re: How to configure autonumbering to begin with zero rather than one.

Although it would typically be used for 1.1, 1.2, 1.2.1 style numbering, if you only use it at the highest level (so no parts), then the <$hn_0> placeholder would do exactly what you want. It only prints the first number at the highest level, so 0, 1, 2, 3.

Re: Searching scrivenings

That is indeed a bug. There are a few issues that remain to be fixed, with how regular document find (Ctrl+F) works in Scrivenings mode (such as not finding text in titles, when titles are included).

Re: Is there a formalism for bracketing text that is not to be printed?

Inline annotations can each have their colour changed individually. Some prefer to use this as a way of colour-coding different types of comments (I use light grey for deleted text, bright red for important notes I absolutely do not want to scroll past without seeing, etc.). As with the text highlig...

Re: The best feature ever would be opening...

I've always considered this to be in the domain of the window manager. That is how it is on all other major operating systems at any rate, and I've heard that Microsoft has been considering adding it to Windows. We had requests for this from Mac users for years, until Apple finally made tabbed windo...

Re: Using F1 to see the manual.

Thanks for the reports! The auto-updater has been fixed, so this should no longer be an issue for those downloading the update going forward.

Re: Scrivener 3 for Windows: How to include document synopsis and notes in compile?

A good format to start from is "Outline Document", which comes with some layouts that already include the title + synopsis, and while notes are not included in any of them by default, they are formatted in the background so all you would have to do is check the box on the "Title and S...

Re: user manual is more like an example of storytelling than a concise form of information conveyance.

That copy is a bit old, I'll be updating it with all of the Windows edits in a bit. I ran into a problem with how lists were formatted (you'll probably see what I mean in that older version), so I'm having to switch them over to Markdown. There are a lot of lists though, so it's been a process.

Re: Version 3: 'Reveal in Binder'

In most cases where you can double-click on something that action is already in use for some other purpose, so it wouldn't be a reliable approach. In fact the only thing I can think of that doesn't have a double-click action is in the binder.

Re: user manual is more like an example of storytelling than a concise form of information conveyance.

That’s fair! The amount of discussion about what has changed, and why, is something that I have been gradually editing out, as I do agree with that point of criticism. I think it is more effective to just describe how things work, and only refer to changes if they are significant. It’s interesting y...
