Re: Sending a compiled book to a Kindle to edit

On this: Since Scrivener 3.1.5 was released, Amazon has completely done away with KindleGen as a separate install - instead, KindleGen is built into Kindle Previewer. 3.1.5 recognises that, though - as long as you have Kindle Previewer installed in the Applications folder, Scrivener will be able to ...

Re: Bug: Instacrash after 3.2 upgrade

Just a quick update on this: I've found the underlying cause of the crash - it's triggered by a workaround I put in place to fix another bug (typically). So I now need to find an alternative fix for the original bug. Fingers crossed this should be sorted by the end of the day. (Seriously, the icon l...

Re: Seem Stuck at v3.1.5 (12258) as Update Errors and Need v3.2.0 for Editor Text Color

3.2 has been pulled until I can find the bug causing a crash from many users on pre-Big Sur systems. This is why the automatic updater is failing. It will be restored as soon as I've found the bug (hopefully tomorrow). Until then 3.1.5 remains the current version.

Re: Bug: Instacrash after 3.2 upgrade

3.1.5 has been restored as the main download version on our site until I can work out what is going on here, as we have a bunch of users with this issue. It's bizarre as we have tested 3.2 on a number of machines - I myself have tested it on 10.14, 10.15, Big Sur, and I've tested on more than one co...

Re: Compile for IngramSpark: Removing embedded color profile

Just to update you on this, too: I took out a Developer Technical Support ticket with Apple's engineers on this, to ask if there was any way to remove colour profiles from PDF files using the Cocoa frameworks (that is, the Apple technologies available to developers). An engineer replied to say that ...

Re: Editor text is black in Big Sur Dark Mode

Next week: That's awesome, KB -- thanks for the hard work. Out of curiosity, for those of us on older hardware who aren't even on Catalina (my Mac mini is mid-2010, so 10.13.6 is it for me), will this update work for us as well or are we plateaued at 3.1.5? I'm good with it either way -- the plan i...

Good catch. I've found the issue (a change in Big Sur) and have fixed it for next week's update.

Re: Scrivener 3, Scrivener for iPad, and changes at apple.

I do wish there was less translucency in sidebars and toolbars, though, but then the obsession with translucency has been a thing for a few years now. Too much? https://www.howtogeek.com/699486/how-to-disable-transparent-menus-on-mac/ I know I can do that, but I like to keep the default settings as...

Re: Scrivener 3, Scrivener for iPad, and changes at apple.

You should have seen the early Big Sur betas - the translucency in menus made them nearly unreadable; I'm glad Apple rethought that. I have to say that I'm not a fan of Apple now specifying that all app icons should be a rounded square - it really limits what you can do with an icon, and makes it mu...

Re: Refreshing PDFs embedded into the editor as figures

I deliberately removed from Scrivener the corner arrow contextual menu that you see in TextEdit, as it does not at all play well with the custom things Scrivener does. And yes, PDFs are a bit of a different beast - you'll need to reload the project to refresh them.

All the best,
Keith

You can also use "Other..." at the bottom of the lists menu in the format bar or Format > Lists > Custom List... to create a list for now.

Re: Editor text is black in Big Sur Dark Mode

This is a known issue, and will be fixed when we release our Big Sur-compatibility update. Katherine Please, any forecast on release date? I upgraded to BigSur and I'm forced to light theme by now...

Re: Scrivener 3, Scrivener for iPad, and changes at apple.

People are bound to hate it; we always get complains whenever we change the icon. I expect complaints about the app tint colour too. I just hope you like purple. :)
