Donwgrade because of bug

Since 1.2.3 Scapple refuses to create new notes with the style of the selected note (even though I have thi s behavior checked under general options). Having to style every note after its creation slows me down considerably. What is the safest way to downgrade back to version 1? I am on Win7 and unf...

Re: Slow file handling

For your "working on the railroad" scenario I suggest you use a USB flash drive for your project(s) directory. Put your Scrivener backup directory there too. That way you can set your HD to power down when the laptop is on battery power. With minimal apps running you won't be seeing any t...

Wish I could. Zero would be ok, too. But autosave is limited to a range from 1 - 300 seconds.

Re: Slow file handling

Photoshop is different altogether. Its preferences allow you to adjust its Scratch Disk ad lib. Seems like you're used to a server environment. Protected against power failures and RAID backup etc. I am concerned with Scrivener on a PC. If it freezes or crashes, I will lose my stuff if saves did not...

Re: Slow file handling

Thanks for clarifying, Jaysen. Should have been more precise. Actually, I was talking about the environment variable %temp%. On most machines it is located at C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Temp Your idea of a persistent RAM disk is very convincing. The only thing I worry about: What happens in cas...

Re: Slow file handling

Good points. All of them. I will try Jaysen's tips for system optimization. But I doubt that other users will give this as much thought as we do. What can a Scrivener user gain from our postings? ...vibrations can reduce the lifespan of a mechanical drive considerably, but have no adverse affect on ...

Re: Slow file handling

Thanks for the link, Amber very good article. Especially the part about Trim. I didn't have it, which is why my drive became unoperable when a few blocks had expired their write cycles. The links on the bottom of the page are also worth reading. I can confirm that not all SSD controllers do a good j...

Re: Timelines / Timeframes

Thanks almansur, I had problems with Java in the past. On two occasions. Ever since I have become very reluctant to simply go ahead and install additional runtimes. This also applies to Python, btw. Needing to deinstall old versions first, not being able to do so completely, security warnings, etc, ...

Re: Cannot open my current Scrivener project!

Oops, just now I realize you're on Linux.
Since there are dedicated Linux and Mac forums, I never check the OS in the sidebar. Guess I should.

Re: I can't get Scrivener to start.

Seems like we've been posting about the same time, with some overlap.
One more thing: Does everything else work as expected on your PC? Or do you see lags in other programs, too?

Re: I can't get Scrivener to start.

3 minutes for start-up seems a lot. How much free space do you have on your hard drive? For how long have you been using Scrivener? How large is the project (in terms of MB-size)
Have you ever cleared out your temp folder? DO NOT do it now, though, it might contain important data.

Re: Cannot open my current Scrivener project!

Check your temp folder. Your rtfs should all be in there. Unless you recently cleared the temp folder, of course. For the time/date stamp: In your file manager or Windows explorer set the view mode to "Details". This will give you a column with the corresponding date and time for each zip-...

Re: I can't get Scrivener to start.

Could you provide some details?
Did you just recently upgrade to 1.0.3? Has it worked before with the same version? Did you reset any of your system parameters?
When you say it is trying to start but nothing happens, what do you mean by that?
