Re: which converter for Microsoft Word / Office documents?

Pity. Although I admit I would be shocked if Word for Mac actually *could* be used as a converter, if it could, I would prefer to have that option. I appear to have a much less adversarial relationship with Word than most of your clientele. :)

Re: iMac 3D accelerator card not supported

This forum is for the discussion and support of the products of Literature and Latte, namely Scrivener and Scapple.

You will have better luck finding a general Mac support forum, a World of Warcraft support forum, or by contacting Apple support to help troubleshoot the problem.

Re: which converter for Microsoft Word / Office documents?

Is it no longer possible to use an installed copy of Microsoft Word as the converter? That's never been possible from Scrivener itself. Obviously you could just export as RTF, open that in Word, and then export as .docx from Word if you wanted, though. Am I confusing a feature in the Windows versio...

Re: which converter for Microsoft Word / Office documents?

The "better" converter itself is written in Java. Scrivener ships with a Java interpreter, but many people have more up to date versions installed on their systems. The default is to check the box to use the "advanced" converter, but leave the second box unchecked. If the conver...

Re: Touch screen scrolling in Scrivener 3?

I would guess that this has to do with the fact that Scrivener for Windows is not a native Windows framework application but is being developed in the Qt5 framework. This gives the team a starting point closer to the Mac OS APIs so they have to do less re-inventing of the wheel, but it does mean tha...

Re: Cannot open Mac scrivener file in Windows

The point is many small companies do it and I can only assume you will need to learn how as well eventually even adding a patch to the Windows 2.9 version to allow it to open and save 3.0 files. I think you might have gotten so caught up in the argument you've confused some of the details. Scrivene...

Re: Is Literature & Latte trying to force us to Mac's?

OCD is a debilitating condition that has many symptoms, and trivializing it to the point of "you used an apostrophe incorrectly" causes pain for people who really do suffer from the real thing, whether you intend it to or not. If you choose to be offended by an off-the-cuff remark, then p...

Re: [Suggestion] UI "bug": Columns Button on Outliner is ">" when it should be "..." or a cog

I will point out that that use of an angled bracket to indicate "more/less display" is not unprecedented in Windows -- Microsoft Office uses it to collapse/expand the ribbon. Granted, they use a vertical-pointing angle bracket, not horizontal, but it's not a foreign concept in the Windows ...

Re: Scrivener 3 Windows Release

Just to clarify: we do not announce release dates as a matter of policy. There has been *no* official announcement of a Windows Scrivener 3 release date. Including the original "we are going to try for 2018" -- even that much of a statement got latched onto as gospel, leading now to more ...

Re: Problem with working Scrivener on different devices

Yes, the backup folder needs to be accessible from the local system. It's a Scrivener setting, not a project setting, so you'll need to define one for each device that has Scrivener installed. One thing some of us do who work from multiple Windows devices is use a DropBox-synced folder for the main...

Re: Is Literature & Latte trying to force us to Mac's?

The apostrophe in the title is wreaking havoc with my OCD. If we're going to insist on that level of accuracy, merely wishing small details to be correct is *not* OCD. OCD is a debilitating condition that has many symptoms, and trivializing it to the point of "you used an apostrophe incorrectl...
