I just updated to version 220.127.116.11 and I just noticed that something is off with the formatting in screenplay mode. The Action margins are at 6.5, which is just about middle of the page. And the line spacing is non-existent. Please see screenshot attached. Is this something on my side or does everybody get that? Can I correct this? Thank you.
Has nobody ever encountered this error? Am I the only one?
I believe this is a scaling bug with the zoom factor, not specific to 1.9 but rather related to the default Windows zoom on high-res monitors. Have you switched anything else between working on the script in 1.8.6 to 1.9? I’d expect the high-res problem to be present in both.
Have you tried the manifest fix suggested here? This has helped a lot of users working with high-resolution monitors, but I don’t think anyone has mentioned script mode specifically and I’d be interested to see if it helps workaround the problem you’re having.
Am I really the only one having this problem?
With the new update, this is still what my Screenplay formatting looks like:
Just to compare, this is what it should look like.
I’m running the ‘Disable display scaling on high DPI settings’ compatibility mode and a Dell XPS 13 running Win 10.
It’s definitely a scaling issue with the editor, I’m afraid, so it’s not something we can fix properly in the current version because the framework as a whole doesn’t have true High DPI support. If you don’t tick the “Disable scaling” option, does it correct the spacing?
Ah, yes, once DPI scaling is removed, then the formatting works properly. But now the whole program is a bit blurry (text and icons).
Ok, thank you! Now at least I know what the issue is.
But it’s really strange because my screen resolution is 1920x1080… Is that really high DPI?
You’re not alone.
I have a 3200x1800 monitor which I use in a 1600x900 resolution exclusively so I can use Scrivener but while normal writing is doable, the screenplay problem persists.
