Says I have to restart when I switch. Is this absolute or is there some way to bypass this requirement?
Restart Scrivener, not your computer. No, there is no way to bypass this step.
Drat. I suspected that was the case, but I figured I’d ask anyways. Thanks.
The one thing if try different themes when just open the project with NO changes will rapidily close as nothing new to save and can quickly cycle thru various themes to see what you like. any adjustments in the project will trigger full backup process.
Changing the Theme will always need to restart the application to show the Theme.
Absolutely but when just open project before making any changes is best time to try new themes as application will just close with no backup as no changes have been made. This allows rapid cycling thru themes
