It's always worth checking the Wish List forum to see if this has been requested...and if so, whether L&L have commented on whether they are likely to add it.

Re: Append date AND TIME to saved project name?

Your regular save is a save-in-place to the currently opened project, and is simply updating the various components of the project that have been modified since the last time it saved. By default, Scrivener will save all the various components back to disk when you take a 2-second break from typing ...

Re: Given coronavirus, are those of us using the Beta going to be... discommoded on the 31st?

We will not be announcing a release date. (Well, not in advance. We'll certainly announce the actual release!) Hope there will be a "Release Candidate" beta as well, with a last call for beta testers to remind the team of any lingering anomalies they may have missed. They track all the bu...

Re: What font do you use?

I cannot control how readers interpret what I write. *No writer can.* I like this viewpoint, Devin. Thanks for sharing it. You're welcome. It is one I have come to after many years of struggling and being angry. It brings with it a large amount of peace and freedom from responsibilities that are no...

Re: What font do you use?

The biggest obstacle writers face is the difference between their own subjective author view and the reader objective view. The entire purpose of writing is to communicate. To allow your thoughts to be parsed from a POV in the reader (which is not the same POV of the author) as the same thought. To...

Re: Spell check suggested corrections

Looking further at this problem, I can confirm that this is a "well known" Hunspell problem. If you find some resources/tricks that will help improving the Hunspell suggestion list order, please let us know. I was just going to chime in to say that when I'd been researching the difference...

Re: Is Scrivener NICER on Mac?

A lot of people on the forums probably think of me as one of the die-hard Windows people, but I really have an IT background stretching back 25 years and I've supported Windows, Mac, and Unix all of that time. I am Windows-first (the major application suite that I've been involved with for the past ...

Um, no. Because we want him to do that? All things considered, it is the safest containment strategy. Also the funniest.

Safety first


Overrated.

Re: Comparing to how others do it -- Scrivener releases, etc.

Being that I am only going by the criticism in this particular post, I hope I am judging them too harshly. You probably are. There is no one right way to run a beta test. If their company is happy with how they run it and their users are happy enough to buy the product, that's probably a good fit f...

It's weird, when devinganger said he couldn't see the pics, I checked the post with another browser (without login in) and I couldn't see them either. So I fixed the issue (or tried XD), checked it again and thought it was everything ok since I could see all 4 with no problem. But xiamenese only se...

There is nothing wrong with writing fanfiction. It can be a great way to hone your skills, and if you're having fun, nobody else gets a say!
