Re: Back asswards composition

Hi Keith, My error was assuming the OPT-Click would open the Composition pane. Even when I opened Composition in default dark mode using CMD-ALT-F, there was no content, so it looked as if the screen was off. That's because the currently highlighted document in the Binder does not open. However, whe...

Re: Back asswards composition

Hi Keith, I've run through your instructions, but can't get Composition mode to open. It doesn't matter whether I use Current screen, Primary screen or Second screen... every attempt opens the Binder file as a split screen on the main Scrivener editor (pre-existing Outline on the left). Going straig...

Back asswards composition

Hey fellow Scrivener disciples, Scrivener has changed how I work for the last six years. I can't remember when I last used MS Word. Scrivener is a truly astonishing productivity tool that I've used for both long form fiction and non-fiction. It keeps getting better (thank you Keith). And the support...

Re: Quick Reference display %

Aha! The inclusion of the Shift key works. Problem solved! Thanks, everyone for helping sort this out. And so quickly too. I regularly use a half-dozen forums for software issues. Scrivener forum members are the most participative and helpful of all. Still, it begs the question whether you're gettin...

Re: Quick Reference display %

Hello JoRo, Progress! While the Windows zoom doesn't work the View > Zoom does. The trouble now is with the keyboard shortcuts. CMD-< pops up the Scrivener Preferences. CMD-> closes the QR. I didn't mess with / overwrite these shortcuts, so I don't know why I get this behaviour. I suppose I could tr...

Re: Quick Reference display %

Thanks for the ideas... Silverdragon, I have tried that and it works. But then I have to re-set screen resolution afterwards. I'm a total pig for desktop space so that I can tile multiple windows on the iPad. I already use multiple desktops on the MBA. To have several resources available while worki...

Re: Float the Inspector

Hello Silverdragon, That sorta worked. The Binder and Inspector are both tucked away out of site. But like you (other Wish List today re: QF display %) I have a two monitor setup, so moving the mouse to the left edge for Binder or right edge for Inspector doesn't work. Using CMD-OPT-B or CMD-OPT-I i...

Re: Float the Inspector

Hi, I don't get that behaviour on my Scrivener setup. Full Screen does not close the Binder and Inspector. In Composition mode, the Binder and Inspector disappear. But bringing back the Inspector produces a floating pane with one of the Inspector functions on it. Any other has to be selected from th...

Float the Inspector

This topic came up a few years ago in the Paleolithic (Scrivener 2). I'd like to revive it! It would be cool to pull the Inspector (and even the Binder) off Scrivener and float it. We can float QRs, Bookmarks and Project Notes and in Composition mode. My normal work mode is to select a folder in the...

Quick Reference display %

I use two screens in a mobile environment. One is a Macbook Air, The other is an iPad Air. Using Duet Display, I extend the Mac's screen real estate to the iPad. This words well for a busy app like Scrivener. I'll often have Scrivener taking the full Mac screen, with one or more Quick References flo...

Re: Prowritingaid Plug-in for Scrivener?

I have a perpetual PWA license as well. I'm using it to create copy for a massive (for one person) authority website. After I get the copy to my own satisfaction, but before putting it up on the website, I run it through PWA. Benefits include helping to dumb-down sentences and paragraphs to an easy ...

Re: Mac Preferences keyboard shortcuts vs Scrivener keyboard shortcuts

Hey JoRo, You're right, Ioa knows his stuff. We jumped through a bunch of hoops trying to bottle the ghost in the machine. In the end it was (of course) Apple's fault. Turns out the Mac Preferences wouldn't purge Scrivener 2, even if all traces of it were deep cleaned using Onyx "Maintenance&qu...

Re: Mac Preferences keyboard shortcuts vs Scrivener keyboard shortcuts

Hello JoRo, Both CMD-F and CTL-S work. I created a new shortcut for MS Word. It worked. Styles shortcuts entered into Scrivener's own 9 item shortcut list also work. The problem seems to be narrowed to Mac Preferences custom shortcuts in Scrivener alone. loa is now working on this issue too... disco...

Re: Mac Preferences keyboard shortcuts vs Scrivener keyboard shortcuts

Hi JoRo, Good test suggestions! I created a shortcut for the standard menu item "Corkboard Only". It didn't work, so it seems that the problem is with the entirety of Scrivener, not just Styles or Formats. I tried the shortcuts on a different project. Still no result. I don't have another ...

Re: Mac Preferences keyboard shortcuts vs Scrivener keyboard shortcuts

Hi JoRo, Thanks for the fast turnaround. 1. I created named Styles for all the shortcuts and they all appear in the Styles menu. 1.1 Type 1: Using Redefine Style From Selection, I edited some existing Scrivener Styles (Heading 1, Heading 2...) 1.2 Type 2: Using New Style From Selection, I created ne...
