Re: Scrivener should become subscription

FWIW, we've also had support issues when people moved to countries where the Apple Store isn't available at all. And of course neither we nor any other developer can control how Apple's licensing requirements might change in the future. Katherine If I could "Like" this response I would. :)

Re: Scrivener should become subscription

When I said there's no official Apple presence here and no way to call, I meant just that. The algorithm is AI, not a human being. So "Officer Algorithm" is a name given to a non-human AI security official who only understands those inputs it knows about. When Officer Algorithm thinks &qu...

Re: Scrivener should become subscription

If Apple was happy to sell you stuff via the App Store in your country I’d be absolutely amazed if your country wasn’t on this list of local numbers to call: https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT201232 Of course most of those numbers are freephone lines which is irritating enough in itself as they’re ...

Re: Scrivener should become subscription

A call to AppleCare will almost always resolve the issue. I don’t know where you are compared to the account etc but in most countries there’s a local number to call and/or chat support. In most countries, you can also get Apple to call you. I also haven’t a clue what ‘officer algorithm’ means. Tha...

Re: Just finished the Survey--How about Wizards??

@Rayz: this might work for pleadings, which thankfully I don't often have to create anymore. But many still do and may find that your method solves this problem. If a lawyer filed pleadings in a single court it would definitely be an improvement to the fake GUI I posted.

Re: Scrivener should become subscription

Please do not do so. I also have a Ulysses subscription. During the year, I got a new credit card. Late on a Sunday night, with no warning, Ulysses sent a renewal through, Since the credit card number was no longer valid, the renewal was declined. So they tried again. And again. And again. Until th...

Re: How can I control the format for my novel?

"Unaware of the capability" is precisely what gives rise to the perception, don't you think? Or is the whole "Scrivener is hard" perception only a fantasy? It would be interesting to count the number of v.3.x compile questions; their frequency, geographic distribution, etc. Maybe...

Re: Automatic Backup: similar to auto-save.

And if you're up against Apple's stingy storage limits, Time Machine is useless. Maybe if you have a TB, 256 GB is useless. Excuse me? You can buy whatever size external Time Machine drive you want, from any company you want. Mine is a 4 TB Seagate drive. Katherine External USB drives fail regularl...

Re: How can I control the format for my novel?

I selected the 'Novel' template and started writing. I have completed my draft but the program is not consistent. My Problem is 3. I want to push a button and make the whole draft look one way. Can someone help? Below are screen shots to illustrate the difference. Another use case for Compile Wizard.

Re: Automatic Backup: similar to auto-save.

For those on MacOS there is an amazing back up function built in - TimeMachine. For Win there are apparently a number of decent free options though difficult to beat one baked into the OS as with Mac. As previously stated, why duplicate options already out there that as a side benefit protect all y...

Re: Just finished the Survey--How about Wizards??

Running header? In the Mac manual the details are found in section 24.20 of the manual, Åage ( sic )settings, and header text in 24.20.6, Header and footer text. In other words, buried. Someone who is looking at the screen shot knows intuitively that --the only way to find running headers is to pul...

Re: Just finished the Survey--How about Wizards??

The fundamental challenge, though, for this or any other attempt to "simplify" the Compile command, is that compiling is an inherently complex task. Katherine And assuming that there was a business, and not merely a social, purpose for the survey, the issue of complexity is one that L &am...

Re: Just finished the Survey--How about Wizards??

So the suggestion is for you to use Wizards to address your complexity concerns. It's not a feature request. Well yes, it is. Either providing an API to support user-created Wizards or creating them ourselves would require significant development time. Whether you choose to call them a "featur...
