Re: Right-click changes selected document

And this is not a feature, in my opinion.

Re: [NB] Overall Impression: I Would Not Upgrade

It's always better to get requirements *before* you write the code. But doesn't the Scriv3Win team already have their requirements? And aren't those requirements something akin to: "Bring the Mac version to Windows with minimal user-visible changes." After all, there is a price to divergi...

Re: [NB] Overall Impression: I Would Not Upgrade

People should keep in mind that there are still features (for example, compile) that: 1) Gate whether Scriv3W can be used for production, 2) Affect everyone, and 3) Still need to be completed. For features that only affect a minority of users or are merely an inconvenience, a little patience is call...

Indeed. I want to throw money at Lit&Lat for the release version so badly, it hurts.

Re: [LH1781] Default Editor Width

800 points wide is useable but not as wide as I'd like. If you'd like you can disable the fixed width editor, which should allow the editor to take up the entirety of the editor pane. Yes, this works, but I like the fixed-width, I just want it to be 1200 pixels, not 800. Is 800 the maximum fixed-wi...

Re: [LH1781] Default Editor Width

Is there a maximum value for the fixed editor width? I ask because if I set it from 800 down to 400, I see it get narrower (after the little dance mentioned in the top post), but changing it from 800 to 1000 or1200 or more, nothing happens. I'm editting on a 32" 4K monitor set as 125% magnifica...

Re: What's happening after January 31st?

With the impedning expirationof the current beta, the date of the next beta release draws nigh. That and the launch of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket are the two things I'm most looking forward to in the next ten days. :)

Re: Scrivener & Backing up via an NAS

Another method of backing up a Scrivener project (or any important document) is to zip it up and email it to yourself. I have an email service from the provider of my .org domain, and it has kept some emails for me for over a decade now (I never auto-expire messages). Along with POP/SMTP, the provid...

Re: Personal Request to Keith: if S3 not out, give public beta, or allow us into private beta

Gotta disagree with the premise here. I'm a Windows user (because no new Mac Mini in years, mainly) and I find 1.9.7 very usable. If I could get 3.0 right before starting a 1-month sabbatical duing which I intended to focus on writing, would I? NO. I'd stick with the tool I know, not spend sabbatica...

Re: How to Fix Scriv's Biggest Problem?

Thanks for the detailed analysis, Amber. As a retired programmer, I see those problems as slam-dunk easy to solve. Then write an app that solves them for you. Seriously. The format of Word and Scrivener files are documented. That, a compiler, and time is all you need. It'll be fun. And maybe other ...

Re: Multi-screen Support

Personally, I'm happy as it is, but the QR windows sound neat. But I'm probably an outlier. I run a 32" 4K monitor surrounded by four 24" 2560x1440 monitors. Scrivener goes front and center, Firefox gets the right monitor, and Outlook the top-left, leaving the other two for miscellaneous (...

Re: Issues with windows 10 latest update

Note that the latest version of Win 10 is 1709, the "Windows 10 Fall Creators Update"

No problems with Scrivener on it, on my self-built PC. (i7-6700K, Z170 chipset, SSD drives, GTX1080+GTX1060, 5 monitors)

Re: Any hints on coming 3.0 features...

Complaints about the price point of Scrivener? Are people kidding? In my 40 years of being a computer geek (anyone else here program a CDC 7600 in FORTRAN?) Scrivener is the best value in software I've ever seen, even the old V1.9.7 version I'm using on Windows is. I'm going to be over the moon for ...
