Editor Settings

Icon Menu

Clicking the document icon in the Editor no longer provides a shortcut menu. Instead, you can right-click (or Control+click) anywhere in the Editor header bar (except the back/forward buttons on the left) to view the menu.

Also, all of the items on the header menu are still available in the regular menus. The most commonly used option—Reveal in Binder—is located under Navigate>Reveal in Binder.

Editor Text Width

Scrivener’s editor is set to a fixed width by default. To force the editor to expand as you expand the Scrivener window, go to Scrivener>Preferences>Appearance. Select Main Editor in the sidebar and deselect “Use fixed width editor.”

Include in Compile

An “Include in Compile” button has been added to the Editor footer. A checkmark in the icon means the document is marked to be included.

An X shows it has been deselected (excluded from Compile).

This option to include/exclude a document from the Compile list is also still available in the Inspector under the Metadata tab, and in the Compile window.
