Re: Scriv 3, the Forum and the new 'Flatter' look

Coming back to this to share my solution should anyone happen upon it. The underlying issue of webpage legibility is captured by WCAG, the international standard for IT Accessibility. Those standards include color contrast, etc. Effra-Light is very thin, which affects its legibility. The term "...

Someone else suggested lightening the Editor background to a lighter grey as a workaround.

Number of users, editors?

Just as a general question, how many Scrivener users are there? I'm asking because I'm still surprised by how many editors still require Word.

TIA.

Re: Scriv 3, the Forum and the new 'Flatter' look

Ditto the forum font making it harder to read. Perhaps going from Effra-Light to Effra-Regular would address it. (Just looking at the Fontkit site the regular is much more legible.) That said, having a care towards being WCAG 2.0-AA compliant on the web site would be nice given that a sixth of the I...

Re: Collaborating With Scrivener

Perhaps true. Node.JS is sort of my crib for the greater trend in programming towards Javascript (Angular, React, etc.). Node has the advantage of having access to the file system. Certainly a port would be a huge undertaking.

At any rate, enjoying Scrivener again with v.3.

Re: New Version

His comment about page breaks, etc. sounds like he needs to spend more time with the Compile settings. When I took an old Scriv2 project and compiled OOTB (out-of-the-box), it was rather disheartening. But, I then perused the upgrade guide and the new concise (only 850 pages) user manual. Once I saw...

Thank you for new Style & Compile system

I just finished spending bits and pieces of the past week tinkering with the new style system and creating new custom formats. I abandoned Scriv2 in part because the lack of styles made editing a bit of a PITA, and for a while wrote in Markdown, compiled to LaTeX or ePub on my own. When I saw Scriv3...

Re: Collaborating With Scrivener

The reasons for this have been discussed in detail elsewhere. Briefly, (1) other cloud services do not support the level of access to the file structure that is needed for Scrivener projects, and (2) what happens to your cloud-stored project if you lose access to the internet with 4,000 unsaved wor...

Re: Please do not go subscription

I should say first I have some awareness of software licensing and trends. Old licenses were perpetual, with not much in the way of updates. More recently, licenses have been perpetual with annual maintenance giving access to updates...go out of maintenance then you have to re-buy your license. Subs...

Re: Does v3 change file format from v2? Can I downgrade if v3 not stable?

There's an Export As Scriv 2 option. So, I think it's safe to say you can recover.

Colored Threads? It's Label View

So, I'm looking for the colored threads feature. No mention of "thread" in the manual, which seems to be the feature term on the site.

In Corkboard, select "Sort by Label" and it comes up. It's called "Label View." GTK, but the feature list is a bit confusing

Re: First runs of 3 won't load under High Sierra

Mine opened fine the first time. I converted a Scriv2 project, then closed out. When I re-opened, it crashed straight away. So, I tried again and it worked fine. I've a 2017 MBP, latest OS patch.

Re: Scrivener on Chromebook / Android (and a view into mobile)

iPhone, iPad and Mac sales are all trending down by 16% and trending down in 2016 . Granted, the data suggest that tablet sales are overall down by about 12%. Of the tablet vendors Apple is 1/4 of the market in 2015, with 25% year-over-year declines; this is the ipad (50M units in 2015) against And...
