Hello helpful folks,
I just switched to Scrivener 3 after many years on 2.x. On the old version, I had what was then called “text background” set to white and what was “page background” set to grey, with a fixed editor width. When I zoomed, my text got bigger but was bounded by the fixed width, so the grey on either side remained regardless how much I zoomed in.
In Scrivener 3, the zooming behaves differently – it obeys fixed width (which is turned on) but the “editor background color” area gets larger as I zoom in, quickly covering up the “fixed width background” (which I set to grey).
Does that make sense? And is there any way to get back to the behavior of v2.8?
I edit zoomed in to 300%, which, at 12 pt font a new-ish Macbook Air, gives me about a 70-character line. And at this point, the grey color I set for the fixed with background is no longer visible. I only use main editing mode, non-composition, not page view etc.
thanks for great software!
