It may continue to be called Scrivener, but if they made the kind of radical changes you're suggesting, it would cease to *be* Scrivener.

Well, your vote counts for exactly the same as mine -- zero.

KB's vision, design, and willingness to code are what matters.

Re: Will iOS Scriv Work in iPad OS?

And I don't know what "custom code and frameworks" apps like Apple Pages, or for that matter, the iOS version of Microsoft Word use. But Microsoft Word on iOS can handle essentially all the formatting that Microsoft Word everywhere else can. Probably more to the point -- if anyone actuall...

Re: Will iOS Scriv Work in iPad OS?

Again, it doesn't have to do with the relative power of the iPads vs. Macs so much as it is what Apple has included in the relevant OS APIs. The most powerful iOS apps use custom code and frameworks rather than depending on Apple's code. I wish L&L would step up to that. Scrivener's shortcoming...

Re: Old Linux version vs current Windows version under Wine

Sorry, but I am very wary of this. WineHQ is a bit cautious about Winetricks, more or less saying that if you use it, you're on your own. And, since I have a working version of Scrivener under Wine and the v1.9.12 breaks things so thoroughly, I shall note your solution, but I have a special bargepo...

Re: Open but unchanged projects marked as modified in v3

Well, if that's the case, my recommendation would be "don't do that." Leaving projects open all the time is a bad idea in general, and a terrible idea if those projects are also being edited from another device. It that case there is no point to having Scrivener for iOS. "I'm doing t...

Re: Will iOS Scriv Work in iPad OS?

I want the missing features of the Mac version of Scrivener to come to the iPad. Nobody wants a version with missing features, neighbor. Why can't I have the same compile options available on the iPad? Why can't I have scrivenings? Why can't I have a freeform corkboard? Two reasons. 1) KB wants to ...

Re: Compatibility of Scrivener on Win10 with MS OneDrive?

Re: Outline a chapter

For what it's worth, I'm using the same approach -- folder for each part, folder for each chapter, document for each scene. I've taken the relevant paragraphs from my outline and placed them into the summaries of each part, chapter, and scene, so when I view them in the outline the Title/Summary col...

Re: 32bit vs 64bit

I'm currently using Scrivener with Crossover, in a 32 bit bottle. The only problem is that starting with 19.9.10 you can't put your registration information in and have it recognized. Are you by any chance in your system firewall doing domain black/whitelisting for the licensing service Scrivener u...
