Can't activate Full Screen mode

using Scrivener 1.54, Mac OS X 10.7.2 Lion

I just went through the intro tutorial, but the Full Screen icon stayed dimmed/unavailable the entire time, so I couldn’t try that out. (I understand that I have to first click within the text window.)

Now that I’ve created a new project, the same behavior persists.

What am I doing wrong? :frowning:


Hi Dan,

Scrivener 1.54 isn’t supported on Lion - Lion was released nine months after 1.54 was discontinued and 2.0 took its place. Lion’s full screen mode broke the full screen mode in 1.54 (but everything works in 2.0, which is compatible with Lion). You say you only just went through the intro tutorial - where did you get 1.54 from? You should download 2.0 instead if you are interested in trying Scrivener, which is available on our main product page:

All the best,

Thanks, Keith. I’ll upgrade.
