Re: Clean looking fonts under Wine

The renderer itself can be an issue. The wine anti-aliasing only works so well unfortunately. Also, a bunch of the fonts in winetricks try to call the PowerPointViewer module, which is a dead link now so those fonts are invalid. So if people are looking for other good looking fonts those two work we...

Re: Install fails immediately

Are you running the 32 bit installer in 32 bit wine, or 64 in 64? And are you running the installer from within winetricks or from the terminal? I like the extra feedback running the command from the terminal gives :) I installed 32 bit in a Wine prefix with the speechsdk installed and it was painle...

Clean looking fonts under Wine

I found that running Windows apps under Wine, a lot of the fonts don't look as good as they do in Windows. So I played around with the available options in Scrivener and found that Segoe UI Emoji 10 is the cleanest looking of the bunch for UI fonts. Arial looked a bit grainy in the editor so I looke...

superscript/subscript?

Is there a way to use superscript and subscript within notes? I'm testing Scapple for escape room design and so far it's perfect except that footnotes would look cleaner with super/sub. Sorry if it's been brought up before. The search isn't working for me at the moment, and I couldn't post either. S...

Re: [LH2848] Kindle eBook generated with strange characters (â € œGratitudeâ €  â €“, targetÂ, businessÂ, etc)

I've found a workaround in the meantime if you need to get your mobi documents cleaned.

Compile to epub (or your preferred format), and add to your Calibre library. Then use Calibre's conversion utility to make it a mobi.

Verified working on Kindle for Desktop and Kindle Paperwhite

Re: [LH2848] Kindle eBook generated with strange characters (â € œGratitudeâ €  â €“, targetÂ, businessÂ, etc)

I just compiled my test file as an epub from Scrivener and it came out fine.
Then I opened the command line and ran kindlegen manually to convert the epub to mobi.
It reintroduced most of the extra characters during the kindlegen process.

Re: [LH2848] Kindle eBook generated with strange characters (â € œGratitudeâ €  â €“, targetÂ, businessÂ, etc)

The thing that confuses me about this one is why kindlegen created a perfectly formatted version from Scrivener when read with the older version of Kindle, and created a messy one when read with the new version. You'd think if it was happening on the Scrivener side that kindlegen would have made a b...

Re: [LH2848] Kindle eBook generated with strange characters (â € œGratitudeâ €  â €“, targetÂ, businessÂ, etc)

Is there a method of duplication for this? I generated a test mobi in the same version and don't see it (yet). If I can duplicate it I'll try it again as well after the next release so there's more of us in the wild looking for it :) edit: Aha! When I closed Kindle for Desktop and opened it again it...

Re: [JH] Locking up at "Beta will expire" dialog box?

I was able to get an old version of Notepad++ to force the update, but it didn't conflict with the Scrivener launcher at any point during the install. So that's good :) I was able to launch Scrivener at every prompt point during the install process. Whatever it was that preventing me from launching ...

Re: Locking up at "Beta will expire" dialog box?

No, Scrivener uses its own update mechanism and shouldn't be related. Is the hang reproducible on your machine? If so, could you provide the exact steps so we can try to recreate the error? I shall try. I have to hope that there's an update to Notepad++ that causes the updater to run, and then see ...

Re: Locking up at "Beta will expire" dialog box?

Ooooh! Followup question!

Does Scrivener use the LGPL Generic Updater Platform to do it's update checks?
That was active in Notepad++ and as soon as I closed it Scrivener was able to load again.

[JH] Locking up at "Beta will expire" dialog box?

Is anyone else having Scrivener fail to proceed beyond the dialog box notifying us of when the update will expire? It worked fine for me previously, so I find this curious. I'm not submitting it as a bug yet, as I don't see a cause at the moment. Just curious to know if it's occurred for anyone else...

Converting to folder from a file with contents?

If you have a file with content and convert it to a folder, should the contents of the file become visible as a subfile within the folder? or not? I noticed in the Interactive Tutorial and then in a new project that files converted to folders lost visibility of their content when browsed. Though con...

Re: Do you need a pen name? Why?

My real name is ridiculously common, and generates a massive number of hits on google. Since I wanted to make it easier for people to find anything I create I decided to go with a pen name, and simply based it off of my middle names instead. I was then able to get a domain name for it, and it comes ...
