Re: My Feedback from a Scrivener Trial

Perhaps it needs stating explicitly that (as I understand it) the text engine that lies under Scrivener is Apple's, and Scrivener is merely using what is provided by the system, therefore Scrivener has no real control over it. If the implementation of styles is lacking, that is down to Apple. This ...

Re: My Feedback from a Scrivener Trial

You have completely and totally misunderstood my comments and what I was looking for. With the greatest respect, I don't believe that is really the case. It seems clear to me (and I think it was clear to Login) that what you were looking for is a program that would deal with the visual aspect when ...

Re: Legibility of Big Sur UI

Aaand ... having tried dark mode I cannot stand it! About thirty seconds was enough. I can't see a thing nor understand what I'm looking at. I don't want to claim you should do what I do, but just wanted to share my experience that when I tried Dark Mode on Mojave the first time, I kind of didn't l...

Re: Legibility of Big Sur UI

Yeah, calibration made a HUGE difference (in light mode, at least). I had to do it twice because I didn't understand what I was trying to do at first. Squinting undoubtedly helps. I might try dark mode as well. It seems to make shortcuts stand out better in menus, from my brief glance at it. Thanks ...

Re: Legibility of Big Sur UI

anyone with functional eyeballs Unfortunately mine are not: I'm colour blind (and myopic). I'm not sure messing around with calibration would be a good idea. But generally I agree with what you say. I used to admire the Mac UI. That time has long gone. Now I just want something that is usable, and ...

Re: Legibility of Big Sur UI

I did try dark mode for a few minutes, and thought that maybe for the first time in my life I could see a use for it. I usually hate light on dark, and there are studies that show it is less legible for text. Maybe I should give it a longer trial, but it goes against about thirty years of habituatio...

Legibility of Big Sur UI

Do other people find it hard to read the new UI? I find I can't tell which window has focus at times because the difference in tint is so small. I'm seriously hoping someone will bring out a skin or something to help. I'd use Accessibility, but it also looks awful to me.

Re: Update Error! (after Check for Updates)

I still get the same error message. Same here. And the download link for version 3.2 on https://www.literatureandlatte.com/scrivener/release-notes?os=macOS still gives me a file that is version 3.1.5. As I posted above, it's been pulled again. If you search the forum, you will find an announcement ...
