Re: MAS vs Direct Sale version

You are not missing anything, but you are helping L&L because direct sale means no portion of your sale that goes to Apple

Also, updates are faster with the direct sale version, because MAS needs to approve them, I think

Eventually 32-bit apps won't run anymore on MacOS (although no one knows when that is going to happen, and most likely Apple will alert with plenty of time). But my point is, since at some point one has to move to a 64-bit version, doing it sooner rather than later is probably best

Re: Thinking of using the macOS 10.14 Mojave Beta? Read this.

ah yes, no wonder dark mode isn't working in scrivener yet. fair enough. i should say haven't had any problem with mojave and scrivener so far, BUT, if you do decide to run mojave don't bug keith, he's been very clear you do at your own risk!

Re: iCloud desktop question

As far as having several backups, when i hit "save as" and put it on external drive (which I do have specifically because I don't want to lose several years worth of dissertation work), when scrivener "saves" automatically on close, will it will save to where I have the live pro...

Re: Macbook recommendations for Scrivener 3

I run Scrivener on a MBP 13” retina first gen (circa late 2012), a MB 12” first gen, and an iPad Pro 9.7”
I like small :D
But, as Keith said, Scrivener will work well on all these machines
If you use the machine also for something more computing intensive, the MBP is hands down more powerful

Re: Adding TinderBox for Keeping Track of Things? Not really! Something else?

No, it isn’t. Agenda uses the same drag-n-drop for emails into Agenda notes and it creates a link back to the email, for both the direct download and App store versions. there is the tenuous possibility that sandboxing was implemented in Scrivener and Agenda in slightly different ways, hence differ...

Re: Adding TinderBox for Keeping Track of Things? Not really! Something else?

Could it be the difference between the direct download version of Scrivener and the App Store version? Maybe sandboxing prevents the link from being created from a drag operation. If that's the case, the solution is to download directly from the website here and use that version instead. I believe ...

Re: Adding TinderBox for Keeping Track of Things? Not really! Something else?

Yes, I meant along the lines of the latter: to be able to be link to emails that open in the mail program when you click on them. You can drag the email from Mail app into a Scrivener document and you have a link that, when clicked, will open up that email. Am I missing something here? Sounds good,...

Re: iPad mini advice needed

My oldest Apple device is an iPad Mini 2 and it works fine with Scrivener. It''s a surprisingly good device for typing, reading, and all kinds of productivity. I have also an iPad Pro (smaller size) and yet find myself using the Mini more, It's slower than the Pro, but its size suits me well. Can't ...

Re: bewildered with choices

Hello, I just got Scrivener - I've been wanting it for a long time, but didn't have a Mac. (Now I've got a Mac, so a PC version is being released, doesn't that figure?) I am not sure where this post should go, but I am definitely needing some tips and tricks! Now that I have the software installed,...

yup, I am using an iMac at the office, two laptops (one at home and one traveling), an iPad Pro, an iPad Mini, and an iPhone and everything syncs fine as long as you are mindful about the syncing process
