Re: proof reader services

Be warned: Grammarly doesn't play nice with Scriveners 'smart quotes', so can actually introduce some inconsistent formatting. I love the service, but this glitch is annoying. Won't stop me using it though :) Edit: It has been raised as a feature request with Grammarly. And integration as a feature ...

Re: Grammar spelling

Grammarly integration would be awesome - it's a fantastic service, but slightly awkward to fit in the scrivener workflow.

Re: Strange alignment in some character templates

*sigh*. El Capitan seems particularly littered with weird UI glitches like this. While the OS seems rock-solid stable, UI polish is definitely lacking... Beta indeed.

Split buttons (please!)

This is a tiny UI thing, but it's be really nice to change some of the menu buttons - where they can reveal a dropdown - became split buttons. Press & hold over un-split buttons is fractionally more error prone (from a UX point of view) since the introduction of pressure sensitive trackpads (For...

Strange alignment in some character templates

Just noticed this today. About 50% of the 'character' templates in my current project have become heavily indented. Other document types (so far) seem fine. Not critical, but CBA fixing them given I should be actually writing... but what gives? OS X 10.11.1, Scrivener 2.7.0 Screen Shot 2015-11-03 at...

Re: What Does Your Workspace Look Like?

IMG_7290.jpeg Updated 'workspace' in the House of the Toddler, before I've had time to tidy up. Think daughter teleported all her toys into the living room. This is now my typical writing environment, with my big headphones on, until she's off to bed... how things change since I posted my last pict...

Re: Temporary Scrivener Light

Not a mega fan of the idea of a full-fat iOS version of Scrivener personally (why would I? Current MacBooks are tiny...), but I love this idea of a "light" editor enabling you to dip in and out of .scriv packaged docs. Could be super handy.

Git-like versioning

I wonder how much traction a feature like this would have? VCS is an essential tool of the software developer (or a web developer like me), and sometimes I find myself wishing for something similar I could use for the writing side of my noggin. Example: after a writing session "commit" tha...

Re: Force Click support to activate Lookup.

Thanks for the investigation around this Keith.

There' a solid (free) workaround via BetterTouch and always the built-in key shortcut, so it's not end-of-the-world.

Still... I'm ready and waiting to pay for the mysterious and tantalising 'Scrivener XX' :D

Re: Force Click support to activate Lookup.

And you say that you are seeing this work in TextEdit? I can get Force Touch to bring up look ups in Pages, but not in TextEdit. As Scrivener uses the same text engine as TextEdit, it should act the same in most areas (except where customised). Yep, triggers the popup in TextEdit (OS X 10.11.1, 201...

Re: Force Click support to activate Lookup.

Please explain, as I don't understand the problem. Scrivener uses the standard OS X text system so gestures should be the same in the text area as in TextEdit. Nontroppo pretty much covered it. For some reason the text areas throughout Scrivener ignore Force Touch events. I've installed BetterTouch...

Re: Force Touch "clicks' not working on latest Macs

Works around this missing feature (not a bug) by using BetterTouch applet. It's great :) I've configured Force Touch top right on the trackpad to Lookup words, and top left to lock my screen (security conscious, you know...)

Re: "ForceTouch" support on Macs.

Just found this thread having moaned (a little bit) about lack of Force Touch support in Scrivener, but BetterTouch lets me do that now... and much, much more. Highlight recommend!

Re: Force Touch "clicks' not working on latest Macs

This isn’t the case in Scrivener. In fact, if it’s enabled, you can no longer do “three finger taps” to activate lookups… Is that not the source of the problem right there? Keeping in mind that I am on 10.10 (I have no way of testing the hardware on 10.11 at this time), if I set the look-up gesture...
