Re: Scrivener 3 Windows Release

There are lots of apps for Windows and Android that are not available for Mac or iOS, but that doesn’t make me feel neglected. Personally I actually think this kind of complaining is a bit childish. If Scrivener 3 is so important for you, there is a simple solution. Buy a Mac! If running Windows is...

Re: Scrivener 3 Windows Release

The people behind the Manuscripts app tried to do exactly that back in 2014. It was to be a writing app dedicated to scientific writing and fully integrated with Papers 3 reference app. They released an early beta version for free but vey early decided to start selling the beta as version 1 althoug...

unless you think they might want the best product and the happiest clients possible. If you ever owned a business, then you'd know that delivering a really good product and having happy clients is a very big incentive. It is why you are in business. Unless your clients literally die waiting. :) It'...

Scrivener on Fedora 28 via PlayOnLinux. Font anti-aliasing?

Hello folks! Does somebody maybe have a working solution for the issue I've ran into with Fedora? I run Scrivener4Windows via PoL, and it works so far. However, fonts in the editor look terrible. I was able to solve it for the same combination (PoL + Scrivener) on Xubuntu 18.04. However, this soluti...

Re: Ulysses ** Breaking News **

So if users are satisfied with functions and pricing when making this contract, and keep paying, then what motivation do the developers have? To stay in business. There are other tools out there. If the Ulysses guys sit on their butts and don't keep up with the other tools, then their customers wil...

Re: Ulysses ** Breaking News **

Okay. Still, what is their motivation then? If somebody has installed software and subscribed, then they must find it useful the way it is. I don't think that they will just suddenly up up and away at some point. I have used unsupported Scrivener for Linux for years and haven't had any problems (apa...

Re: Ulysses ** Breaking News **

I can understand their dilemma. How do you make software pay in the long term and what are the long term consequences of having to produce a snazzy new update to keep the funds coming in? Take Omnifocus -- a really good program which was made less powerful (in my view) by a paid update which focuse...

Re: Any hints on coming 3.0 features...

I may be one of the people you're talking about, and if so I apologize. I truly meant no offense. I wasn't seriously complaining that Scrivener is too cheap! I'm just sort of amazed at it. I'm very glad that it's so affordable; the only folks I have a problem with are those who are (in anticipation...

Re: Any hints on coming 3.0 features...

Not for the first time I see people practically moaning about Scrivener being cheap. Tell you what. Had it cost $199, or even $99, I wouldn't have purchased it at all. I simply wouldn't be able to afford it. And the same would be fair, I suspect, for most wrimos and other writing enthusiasts out the...

Re: Any hints on coming 3.0 features...

Personally, I liked the look of ipad version. It's light, clean and minimalistic, nothing to distract from the task at hand. If a hypothetic new interface looked something like Scrivener for ipad or, say, Ulysses, it would've been more than fine with me. :) However, if designing a new GUI would detr...

Re: Scrivener Needs Urgent Updates

Exactly this. You don't see or hear from all the satisfied Scrivener users (myself included) because there's nothing really to say. Instead we clog up things in the coffee end of the forums. (Or, in my case, go months without going to the forums.) The satisfied Scrivener users are probably too busy...

Re: Scrivener Needs Urgent Updates

At what point did I ever say crappy? I've used Scrivener for 2 years, and for the most part it's been fine. That said, it needs an upgrade and I think the editor could be better. What for? What does it lack right now that leaves space for improvement? I'm honestly curious, not trying to start an ar...

How about... you type your paragraph, then press Enter several times to create empty paragraph(s), then go back to where you wish to insert your italicised paragraph and insert it, then click the beginning of the empty paragraph down the page and continue typing?

Re: I love Scrivener - but I'm too scared to use it

Back-ups, back-ups and back-ups performed (and verified) redundantly, both in method and target location, are the only thing to combat your fear. This doesn't add to the workload. Properly understood, it's an essential part of the workload. Totally this! I once lost two months of updates on one of ...
