I’m originally a Scrivener user from Mac, since v1 but through the third. Having recently gotten a new Windows laptop (and no longer having access to a Mac) I was elated to see what Scrivener 3 at last released for Windows. Naturally, I downloaded the trial before immediately committing as it just came out. I know things take time to get going – that said, outstanding work to the developer(s) after a long-awaited release!
Unfortunately I seem to have run into a few issues, and am wondering if I am alone on these, or if they are known issues. If so, is there a workaround until it can be fixed?
Previously on Scrivener 3 (Mac) under the Scrivenings mode I was able to do a mass-select and edit multiple pieces from multiple documents in the binder. I tried replicating this with control selecting or dragging, but it doesn’t seem to work quite the same. Is this functionality not possible on Windows?
The biggest of the three issues. Styles do not seem to entirely save properly. While they do appear right in the Styles Panel, every time I save and reload the font entirely changes to something completely different, as do the weights. I’ve tried redefining, brand new Scrivener Projects (even with no defaults styles set). Nothing seems to fix this.
Copy-pasting doesn’t seem to capture the formatting from browsers or other applications as it did on Mac. While it does capture the text, sometimes colouring is important for highlighting. For now it’s just as if I copied something from Notepad into Scrivener – no formatting at all.
If anyone has any insight or if these are known issues, that would be wonderful!
