Re: Project Name Oddness

Given that this is not so much a problem with Scrivener, but with how you have chosen to use a different piece of software, and given that there are some clear downsides with your proposed approach (as Katehrine pointed out early in this conversation), and finally given that you have an easy workar...

Re: Project Name Oddness

Bringing this back around to the original topic (I know, shocking on these forums...): Project names appear blank when the project is at the root of a file system. Could you elaborate on this? Steps to reproduce would be great. I created a new blank project using the New Project window and chose C:...

Re: Project Name Oddness

Seriously? Seriously??? Is this the kind of treatment I can expect? Not what I come here for. Not something that I will tolerate, either. Shame on you, Jaysen. Keep your character judgments, and your advice, to yourself. Nobody in this beta test forum requires either from you or anyone else when lar...

Re: Project Name Oddness

Pointing out how things work on the Mac is also not satisfactory. Windows is not the Mac; and, contrary to what Apple fanboys would have you believe, Apple is not the ultimate arbiter of UI quality. *sigh* Please don't use ad hominem attacks. We (forum regulars) like this place to remain civil, and...

Re: Project Name Oddness

alternatively, create your box crypt folder, mount it, then copy your scriv project into it. now your crypt file will contain the complete project and what you are seeing should go away. I did that already. In my opinion, however, making a bug (the blank menu item) go away is not the same thing as ...

Project Name Oddness [NOTED]

Project names appear blank when the project is at the root of a file system. Not a problem with the beta, but first seen with the beta. Whatever the origins of project names, they should not appear as blank in the "Open Recent" dialog.

EDIT: revised for clarity

Re: 1.1.0.2 Uninstaller woes [NOTED]

Well, it is a Beta, nathanzal. It's a valid issue. If you think it's redundant of me to bring it up, feel free to ignore me. It won't be the first time. Now that an uninstaller issue has been raised, it's appropriate to talk about workarounds. For the present you're probably right; it's better to a...

Re: 1.1.0.2 Uninstaller woes [NOTED]

I think I mentioned this in my other post, but just in case it went flying by: when I used the beta installer directly (not from add/remove programs) it removed both versions of Scrivener, beta and original. So a separated installer package would be great. :) So what is the workaround? Do we just i...

Re: BETA 1.1.0 RELEASED

For now, you'll have to go back to Windows. But if you have a modern machine (mine, for example, is 2 years old) you can install Windows in a virtual machine and run Scrivener there; you don't have to literally "go back to Windows." That's what I've been doing. I use VMware (which is now ...

Re: Spelling on Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit

If you haven't already by, why not start by installing ia32_libs--this will pull down the multiarch versions of the libraries. (that's why there's no longer a "lib32" directory) After that Scrivener, incidentally, installs cleanly (and runs) without "--force-architecture." Did yo...

Re: BETA 1.1.0 RELEASED

Er, did the 64-bit versions ever get released? I couldn't find a link in this thread. Been doing my writing in vi for two months now -- there really needs to be a Linux version that doesn't expire. Agreed! I remember reading something not long ago that the 64-bit betas are pretty much dead for the ...

Everything you write disappears on reboot.


This might be related to the bug I noted over here:
