A minor bug that annoys for a while now :
I write in French and my Preferences are in French. So times, for no obvious reason (for example when I am in split editor pane), the right editor (say Text 1) has it’s language formatting in French (as I want it to be) and the left one (say Text 2) has its formatting in English (which I don’t want). If I close the pane editor of Text 1 and want to go on writing Text 2, it still has it’s (unwanted) English formatting. Sometimes the text formatting will get back to it’s normal language state (French) after closing and re-opening the project.
As you may know, the French and the English apostrophes and quotation marks are not the same – among other differences.
Okay, it’s not a BIG bug, but it’s a very irritating one, as I have to chase English formating mistakes in my word processor afterwards and always miss some of them.
Sorry, I can’t give you the steps to reproduce this bug, as it’s seems not to happen to new projects, but only to old projects written in the old Scrivener format and then opened in the new Scrivener format (not sure of that, but I couldn’t reproduce it with a new project whereas I could easily reproduce it with an old project). Maybe that’s a clue… ?
You’ll see what I mean in the attached jpg. No copy and paste, I just wrote twice the same text in the two documents.
Using : MacBookPro / OS 10.11.3 / Scrivener 2.7
Thanks for your help !
PS : Couldn’t write today. Could only do some bug hunts and other computer staffs like that between two looks at the News. Forgot to mention that I live in Brussels.
