Re: All Work Lost (with Screenshot)

Win PCs often start getting serious problems when they are three years old. Sometimes starting all over, format the disk and install a fresh up-to-date copy of Windows and all your other software, might make things better for a while, but PCs have a rather short active life span. Sorry, Lunk, but t...

Re: All Work Lost (with Screenshot)

One thought that comes to mind -- depending on your hardware, you might be running into a problem with your storage controller and some sort of write caching being in play. It's a common tactic to cache disk writes into memory instead, to take advantage of the speed difference (even with SSDs). The ...

Re: Extensive edits lost

Yup, there always will be people, who will take the blue pill , and then there are those who value freedom above all. :mrgreen: My father-in-law seems to value the freedom to visit sketchy web sites that deposit malware on his system. Which is fine, as long as he's not asking us to clean up the mes...

Re: Extensive edits lost

If anyone read my comments as putting down Windows or being dismissive of it or in any way doing anything to fuel the stupid Windows/Mac religious flamewar, stop. I am very, very tired of energy and shade being thrown to argue over stupid crap or imply that people who do things differently are someh...

Re: Bug: Empty paragraph sometimes displays with wrong line height

I tried to replicate this on the Mac and couldn't, so either it's a feature specific to the Qt text engine and how it assembles RTF, or I messed up the replication steps.

Re: Extensive edits lost

Another culprit, building on what Lunk points out, is the fact that the Windows software ecosystem is a lot more wide open. There is a LOT of poorly written "security" software out there that likes to wedge in between usermode and the filesystem drivers to silently perform real-time operat...

Re: Possible Corrupted File--How do I resolve?

Also examine the project folder in Windows Explorer. Make sure that it has not been set to read-only.

Re: AMERICANS! Please help...

Here in the Puget Sound region of Washington state, the Honeycrisp variety is fairly popular as the go-to "eating" apple. Nobody eats Red Delicious because they may be red, but they're not delicious -- they're bland and mealy.

Re: (*This topic has been resolved*) New Scrivener 3 Prices/Discounts of Old and New Users

*This topic has been resolved* Changing opinion is adult behavior, and taking responsibility for ones actions (or writing) and apologizing if one later thinks some previous actions were bad is also adult behavior.

Okay, so now that that is straight, thank you for clarifying. The link and info provided is helpful. It confirms the issue I thought this was. So it is "straightforward". So what? I ABSOLUTELY expect to receive the major overhaul equally, if not free, for the time I've invested and suppor...

Re: Can I change to a different template once I've assigned one?

A template is just a starting point for your new project -- once you've created that project, it has no further association to the template you based it off of. You can move folder and documents around, change settings, and generally do whatever you need to. My advice would be to create a new sample...

Re: Link Broken between Scrivener Documents and Program

If the containing folder was read-only and that setting inherited down to all of the files in the project, it makes complete sense. When you open a Scrivener project, several files get updated even if you change no content.

Re: Why the Update

Us Windows users have been waiting since Thanksgiving last year for the new version. Why are you devoting resourced to updating the old Windows version 1? My co-writer uses a Mac, I use Windows, Since last year we have not been able to use Scrivener. Now from my point of view I see programmers work...

Re: Compile Problems

The Drafts folder can be renamed, but there is still only a single folder that will contain your documents that can be compiled. Under what top-level folder in your project are the two documents that show up in search during compile? That's probably your re-named Drafts folder -- try creating additi...
