Re: News on Linux Scrivener after 31st March?

Great news! I have been without this wonderful program for several months as I am too lazy to become a Linux programmer to get it to work. I did download the .deb that was released back in November, but my mouse doesn't seem to work. Since we are only a few days or a week away from the next release,...

Re: typing problem

I am having a similar problem in that when I double click to highlight a word, it highlights a word on the line below where I click. The cursor seems to jump all over the page and when I click on the down arrow at the right side of the editor screen nothing happens (up works fine). I am using Ubuntu...

Re: Running Scrivener on Linux

Success of a sort. Can get Scrivener to load from the terminal and have even been able to open my project created on Windows (which was not working a few days ago, cue Twilight Zone theme). Pasted the code for the desktop icon, that did not work, but typing "Scrivener" into the terminal is...

Re: Running Scrivener on Linux

Progress! I can get Scrivener to open, and start a new project, but I can't open my existing project which was done on the Windows version (2.9) of Scrivener. I haven't tried going the other direction yet, but a step forward is a good thing. All of the help is greatly appreciated.

Re: Running Scrivener on Linux

I got Scrivener installed, I think, but cannot either locate the file to get it to run, or I have not installed it correctly. I tried a .deb file, but Ubuntu told me the file was corrupted so I downloaded the tar file and went that route. I have tried both the Download directory and putting the file...

Re: Running Scrivener on Linux

OK, I am having flashbacks of editing FORTRAN code in college (yes, I'm that old). I get the basic idea of the Terminal (I'm running Ubuntu 11.04) and I've tried to follow all the instructions I can find, but I'm not getting the program to run. So instead of writing my novel, I'm typing, copying and...

Re: Turning typewriter scrolling on and off

Why do I only find the answer after I have posted the question? For those who read this, typewriter scrolling seems (according to my rather faulty memory) to have been moved to Format>Options>Typewriter scrolling. However, I can't seem to turn off the option in Full Screen mode. (sigh) So then, this...

Turning typewriter scrolling on and off

As usual, I looked for this topic and could not find it, so one more string to add to your ever growing ball of twine known as Scrivener (metaphor foul, I know). Typewriter scrolling is great when I'm writing, a major pain in the derriere when I am editing, so I turn it off and on frequently. I have...

Re: program freezing

I haven't had anything to report for some time (a good thing) but I'm back and this post sounds similar to problems I have been having. I have v29 on Windows XP working on a mss that was started in v24 or 25. Everything has been working well until this latest download. Scrivener takes a VERY long ti...

Re: Name Generator

Excellent suggestion. Maybe a floating toolbar that would allow the use of several different components would be useful. If not that, a space in the Inspector pane where such things could be placed as needed. I generate lists of names and store them as research documents. If I use a particular name,...

Titles missing from compiled document

Running v 25 on XP. I compile regularly as a means of backup. I recently reviewed one of my doc files and found that none of the chapter titles had compiled. I double checked my settings and found the correct boxes checked (see screen shot). If I am doing something wrong, please let me know. Thanks,...

New words for dictionary

Just a quick list of words not found in the US English dictionary (v.25):

draught, draughts
accoutrement, accoutrements
neurotoxin
noir

Not terribly difficult to add, but I keep checking them in Word to be sure I'm not missing something.
