Scrivener doesn't remember outline settings. Should it?


Whenever I re-jig the settings for an outline view of a folder, by changing which columns are displayed, whether the rows are coloured according to their labels etc., when I go off and work on some content and then come back to the outline view, those changes get lost, and I have to manually reset them.

Is that expected behaviour? Am I supposed to be saving a special layout view?



No, that’s definitely not right. The first thing to check is the UI settings file. It could be it is just jammed up somehow; this happens now and then. Click on the File menu, and then hold down the Option key. Note some of the menu items switch to alternates, choose “Close Project and Clear Interface Settings”
