Re: As I rename documents or move them in the binder, the document link changes. What are the rules ?

I tried the instructions at the end of your post, AmberV, and find that Textedit throws and error saying that there is no application to open the link. When I go to Applications to choose Scrivener to open the link, Scrivener is greyed out. Odd. I remember this working fine.

Re: WORDS ARE KING to writers - THEY ARE OUR #1 PRIORITY!

I'll read conlangs all day. They're fun. Tried to learn Vong once. I added it to the spellchecker as needed. Sure, conlangs can be over-used, but that's choice for the author. My Klingon is pitiful, but I'll read Hamlet in it as soon as I can find it.

Thanks for the example--I was over thinking it! KM is good for that :wink:

Using KM, would you pass it through the clipboard?

Re: Is Scrivener Backup still restricted to DropBox?

I was under the impression Scrivener for iOS could use only Dropbox. Perhaps that's what OLONOFF heard?

Text overlap in Inspector

[img]Screen%20Shot%202021-03-28%20at%2010.40.14%20AM[/img]

No matter how I resize, or there length of the file name, text in the bookmarks section of the Inspector overlaps. This is recent and did not happen as early as a day ago.

Did the image go through?

The great strength of Scrivener is how it can bend to the writing process of a great many users, where that proces...

Spacing

Hello, When I compile, I have text that comes after the title. I would like this text to to be flush with the title on compile. I do not type the title manually, Scrivener handles that. I also find that there is an unwanted blank line between the compiled documents on export. It looks like this: Fir...

Re: Serious slow down on Big Sur

I have a project of nearly the same size and have similar issues. I also found breaking it up, and using smaller project for future work, was the answer

I agree. As an option, it would be nice.
