Re: Direct access to Thesaurus

Another shortcut option is to use PopClip. The inbuilt plug-in goes to the dictionary, but cmd+2 gets you to the thesaurus. Actions: double-click word (to highlight); click dictionary icon.

Re: Spelling check strangeness?

I believe this is shared behaviour across Mac apps. i.e. it's a macOS thing.

fyi: For me, d'ont is marked as an error, whereas w'ere is not. ere is valid word, so that's not a surprise. (This is for all apps.)

Oddly, Firefox is marking w'ere as an error and d'ont as okay ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Re: Raw LaTeX, Scrivener 3 and compile process

Something I’ve been working on periodically for a few weeks now is a starter template for those wishing to use Scrivener as a LaTeX “front end” without MultiMarkdown. This is superb. I don't get along with any of the dedicated LaTeX editors, so usually end up in Sublime. Obviously, I'd rather be in...

Re: Labelling characters in chapters

I do this via View/Corkboard Options/Show Keyword Colours

You can alter the number of keyword chips displayed in the corkboard options.

Re: Where do I start?

In Alan Garner's, The Voice that Thunders , he recounts that during the ninth year of his novel his agent and publisher suggested that he abandon it. He jettisoned both publisher and author and completed the novel in twelve years. At one point he says, "I learnt Welsh in order not to use it&quo...

I'm using High Sierra, but I suspect it works in Sierra. I believe the OS-level tabs stuff started with Sierra; can't remember.

Re: Weak words in Linguistic Focus

It would be nice – there's one now! – to be able to input a list of perceived weak words for reporting in Linguistics Focus (LF). LF is a great addition to Scriv, after all. However, I'd not like the list to be in-built. Most apparent weak words can be used to great effect. Hence the mantra: There a...

Re: Where do I start?

This is a fun open-ended question! Over the years, something I’ve learned from reading the practices of many authors is that everyone does it differently. And it’s a huge range of different not just some subtle tweaks here and there. Oil and water differences. Perhaps blood and tears is a better way...

Re: Project Settings/Section Types disappeared again

The strange thing is that even if I hit "OK" the Section Types are restored when I reload - what version of macOS are you on? macOS: 10.13.2 I've not dug further into when Default Types by Structure gets blown away. I do know that it's happened twice, though – including yesterday – since ...

Re: Project Settings/Section Types disappeared again

I can reproduce this now.

  • Open any project.
  • Open a second project then close it.
  • Project Settings/Section Types is blank.

I think that as long as you don't OK Project Settings, then a reload will fix.

Re: Project Settings/Section Types disappeared again

1. Had you edited an project settings and hit "OK" at some point before the types disappeared? (The only time they are ever saved is when you hit OK in the Project Settings.) 2. Once you saw they were missing, did you hit "OK" or "Cancel" before quitting and reloading ...

Re: Project Settings/Section Types disappeared again

I'll have a fiddle about tomorrow with the setting you suggest. Appreciate it's an odd one.

Further info: Section Types repopulated after reloading Scriv (I presume to the defaults). Default Types and Structure was wiped (again, I presume to the defaults).

Project Settings/Section Types disappeared again

Once more, the Project Settings/Section Types have disappeared in one of my Scrivener projects (v3.01 (966)). (Default Types by Structure is also empty.)

This problem has occurred before.

I'm not sure why it happens, but I think it's connected to having multiple project open simultaneously.
