Scrivenings view rendering problem (Ubuntu 12)


After having heard incredibly good things about Scrivener from fiction-writing friends for years, I’ve suddenly started hearing about it as a tool for work-related non-fiction.

So, I went to the site, downloaded Scrivener for Linux, installed it, and started dutifully working through the tutorial.

All was going well until I came to section eleven of part two: the Scrivenings view. If I select more than one section, I do NOT see the full width of the text in each section, I just get the first couple of dozen characters of each line. Changing the zoom level a small amount either way gives me a few more or less characters per line, with the same rightward cut-off, but if I try to change the zoom level too much, the vertical spacing goes to pieces…

Has anyone else seen this problem, please?
