So sorry if these are duplicates and/or not what you’re looking for and/or user error.
When I did a compile earlier today, after I chose a file name and location, it brought up another box prompting me to choose a file name and location. This time, however, it clearly showed the already-created file in the folder I was going to save to. I clicked “cancel” and went to the folder to find the document already created. (Note: although I chose “Novel Standard…”, it was not double-spaced.) When I went back to Scrivener, there was a dialog open for the progress on compiling, although it was clearly done. I hit abort and it gave me an error message. I can give more details re the specifications I was using if requested.
After changing the font and font size, my cursor at the bottom (only in the empty paragraph, not ones with text in it) became about twice the height of a normal cursor. The info at the top says I still have Times New Roman, 12 selected for that text area. When I type, the type size is correct and the cursor returns to the correct size.
After changing the font, etc. (as above), I changed the last word of a quotation at the end of the last paragraph. When I typed the closing quotation mark, it appeared in a different font than the opening quotation mark. When I highlight both of them, they are both listed as Times New Roman, size 12, although one is clearly a sans-serif font and one is not. (It appears that the quotation marks retained the look of the previous font (Calibri) although the rest of the text was changed to TNR. I tried closing the software and re-opening to see if it was a refresh issue, but the quotation marks appear the same after the re-open.
When I click on the entire “draft” section to view all of my subsections together (with the multiple-page icon at the top), I can only page down to the end of a section before page-down stops working. Then I have to choose the down arrow on the keyboard to go to the next area. I may have hard page breaks in there from the import, but I’m not sure.
When I select “Compile,” the box pops up in the middle of the screen. When I click […] option, it expands down and to the right. The bottom of the box does not fit on the screen, so I have to manually drag it up into position every time.
(If these are already known, please tell me where to find the proper list of known bugs/issues!)
I went to the “Draft” multi-page option to change all of the sections to 1.5 spacing simultaneously. When I did this, it changed all of the sections except the very last one which I had created right before trying to change formatting. The last chapter retained the former formatting and I had to change it manually. Every other section was changed as I had selected.
Apparently, the cursor on a blank line is the size of the entire line’s height. So if the page is single-spaced, you get a cursor that is half the height of a cursor on a double-spaced page. Until you start typing, at which point it goes back to normal.
