That makes a lot more sense, having the 'X' appear in the split header and leaving the split functions stationary at the top. I still think the foot is more relevant to splitting (and that makes me want to say the head is more relevant to spitting ), but honestly that is a pretty minor thing. I doub...

But damn good beers compared to the domestic yellow water we get served, here. :)

Oh, and yes -- around $30 is best for sure. Somebody put it eloquently, anything under $35 can sneak beneath the Spousal Radar. Anything near and over $40: Questions and accusations begin!

Thanks, but I am still not getting my idea across: basically, I want to associate comments with specific items in the text, be it sections, paragraphs, or words. The idea behind Scrivener's annotations is that the placement of the annotation becomes the marker. In your mock-up you have a word selec...

I think either the header or foot is a natural place to put these buttons. And between those two, I actually think the footer would be more appropriate as the header is all about navigation and document selection (true, renaming too, but that is gravy). While the footer is all about the document and...

Perhaps it is a gamma setting thing? I have mine set to the old Mac default 1.8, if you have yours set to 2.2, the default might be more obvious.

Oh, the scroll-wheel has always worked in BlockWriter, for me, so that is not it. It almost is acting as if the text window does not have mouse focus. It could be that the keyboard and mouse are tracked separately. I know that scrolling is definitely handled separately from main focus. If you have t...

1) There are a couple of ways to do this. If you identify a section of text that needs work, you can decide to use a highlighter colour for this type of problem, select the text, choose the highlighter colour you want, and press the highlight button, or Shift-Cmd-H. Another option is to use the Anno...

Incidentally (and probably unrelated), I tested it in the Keywords HUD and the mini-inspector notes field, and both of those work fine.

One traditional place to put split functions is tiny buttons at the top of the scroll bar area. Click once to split, click again to un-split, Opt-click to split vertically. http://www.semigreenpenny.com/img/forums/06236675-tao_splitter.png TAO can have multiple splits at once, so there is a button t...

Agreed, that second condition is so rare and unusual, it should be fine the way it is. And I'll try to keep my rampant perfectionism down to the "Reasonable" setting. :)

I could be totally wrong, but I think that the two-finger scroll gesture that works on the newer Mac laptop trackpads sends the same signal that a scroll wheel does.

When you do a search on a term and select a group of documents for multi-document editing, not all of the search results get highlighted. For example, trying searching for "full" in the tutorial, and select the first four documents. Then press Cmd-Opt-4 to edit them all. Only a few instanc...

UI : medium : scroll wheel does not work in fullscreen

I tried it with typewriter scrolling turned on and off, and in either mode the scroll wheel on the mouse does not scroll the text window.

Default contrast for alternate scrivenings

The defaults for the alternate colour background are awfully light. I know, it is very easy to change, but the default is so light, I did not even realise it was a feature until I poked around in the preferences. 92% instead of 98% (using the grayscale slider mode) looks good to me. The default for ...
