Re: Still no settings option to turn off snapshot sound?

I thought I could add Scrivener to the applications list in the Windows volume mixer and hence turn down its volume exclusively. But, no luck. The mixer's app list is very buggy, unless it's not listing Scrivener beta due to its RC status.

Re: Still no settings option to turn off snapshot sound?

I don't see an option for the Snapshot under the Behaviors section. Actually, I don't mind the sound, but it's too loud. The only way to control its volume is to turn down the windows master volume in the system tray, which is very inconvenient. I'll have to live with renaming that .wav resource fil...

[LH1815] Still no settings option to turn off snapshot sound?

An option to turn off the snapshot sound is missing in the Options dialog, unless I overlooked it. I would have thought that after all these years, a simple option to disable/change the sound would be added. The sound is too jarring, hence my motivation to disable it. I eventually just renamed the c...

Re: How customize these user interface elements' colors?

What I wanted to do was copy and paste some of the RGB color values from the .stheme file to the files in the .scrtheme file. But, it seems like color values are represented differently on the Mac as shown in the code snippet I posted above with the random array of characters for the <data> tag. Oh ...

Re: How customize these user interface elements' colors?

Open it with 7zip. I used WinRar which worked like a charm. It's a Zip/Rar archive utility and can also open most other archive types in general. There are 4 files inside that are plain text. You can edit those. Yep, that's what I'm doing. I'm going to learn those 4 files' syntax with a little bit ...

Re: How customize these user interface elements' colors?

There's a .pal, .qss, and a .prefs files. I'm leaving the .prefs file alone for now and editing the pal and qss files instead. I'm putting off editing the .prefs file for a rainy day. Thanks for the help all! :)

Re: How customize these user interface elements' colors?

Face palm! I just realized .scrtheme is a zip file. Opened with Winrar and all is good. Time to edit away. :D EDIT: Some pref settings are assigned the value @ByteArray followed by \x1\xd9\xd0\xcb\0\x3\0\0\0\0\x3\x16\0\0\ etc. And others are assigned @DateTime, or @Variant, etc. I'm going to researc...
