Re: Initial features list - developers' view

Hello there! Brand new iPad owner here and long time Scrivener user here, so I'm super excited for the iPad version. I know that it is way too early for you to talk details, but I wanted to say that I'm very relieved to hear that there will be some rich formatting included. I'd urge you not to heed ...

Re: Hyphenation and Ligatures

Many many thanks! I'm glad there is a simple work around, though I do hope Apple gets this fixed since the ability to put hyphens in more frequently certainly makes for more attractive text. Anyway, load off my mind. You can't (OK, I'm sure you can) imagine the heart attack I suffered when I first f...

Re: Strange Character Substitutions in Full Screen Mode

Hi, I just posted a separate thread on what I believe is the same bug. I didn't notice this thread until later when I happened on it and examined the screenshot. Here is my report: http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=14987&p=106634#p106634 I believe this is due to aut...

Re: Hyphenation and Ligatures

I found the following post about a bug that seems to be the same. (I'd searched for similar bugs, but focused on hyphenation and ligatures, so didn't find it even though it was right there below. Oh well.) http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=14712 I tried the newest beta ...

Hyphenation and Ligatures

(First off, I realize that the typography is handled by OS X. I was however unable to replicate this in TextEdit, and it also results in an application freeze. See below.) I am using Scrivener 2.1 (14118) and OS X Lion 10.7.1. I just encountered a very strange bug where seemingly random sections of ...

Re: Why Scrivener Doesn't Support Versions on Lion

I've been one of the ones bugging you guys about it in the other thread and I just wanted to post here in support and say that while I'd love some way to work it in, I understand and appreciate you taking the time to explain. I think some of this comes from the fact that people must use Scrivener in...

Re: Backups and Auto-Save in Mac OS X Lion

Also, imagine what would happen to your hard drive if a file that could be a gigabyte in size were saved as an extra version every single time you made a change... That's one of the nifty things about how it is implemented. It doesn't always save a new copy every time. It breaks files into chunks a...

Re: Backups and Auto-Save in Mac OS X Lion

For those talking about Snapshots and backups on manual save, there is one key difference in functionality (not just UI). With Scrivener's autosaves, the autosave overwrites your document and you have no record of the state of the document between the last backup and that autosave. Snapshots and bac...

Re: Backups and Auto-Save in Mac OS X Lion

It does, and I appreciate the detailed response. Certainly the ability to import PDFs and other files is a key feature. I also have appreciated the package based format for allowing you (in a worst case scenario) to crack open the file and read individual rtf files. That said, if there were some way...

Re: Backups and Auto-Save in Mac OS X Lion

Personally I'd like to put my voice behind the idea of implementing Lion Autosave and Versions. I had some of the same concerns as the original poster, but after a day of using Lion Scrivener has already started to feel slightly held back by the lack of those features. (Don't get me wrong, it is sti...
