Re: Is Scrivener for PC worth it?

Re: Persistent Settings Needed BEFORE release

I run Scrivener on three laptops, so a one-time saving of the settings on one is an easy move to the other two. A one-time deal, until you make changes. Then do it all over again. I include the title of the work I'm producing as a reminder that I can take a look at what I'm loading first in the even...

Re: Why France’s New Tech ‘Repairability Index’ Is a Big Deal

I can't wait to see how the Apple of everyone's eye rates on repairability. I think I can answer that: It doesn't.

Re: Persistent Settings Needed BEFORE release

F12 / Manage, at very bottom left / then, Save options to file (being sure to include OPTIONS in the file name), and also Save Theme Options to file (being sure to mention Theme Options in the file name too).

Worked for me.

Re: Problems with RC19 in-app updater?

Downloading the x64 version and installing overtop existing didn't work for me. Same error occurs.

Re-installed into a new Program Files directory worked for me.

Re: Going to be brutally honest: this software is a hot bloated mess of jank.

Bibisco? Shure. I guess. Bibisco’s latest version is based on a different technology than its previous version; the former runs on node.js while the latter is based on java. Because of this, it is advisable for creators not to leave their projects on the previous version midway and import them to th...

Re: Going to be brutally honest: this software is a hot bloated mess of jank.

I'm honestly not sure why people are in love with this software Many of us are in love with Scrivener because it allows us to produce output in record time, thanks to some of the bells and whistles included in the L&L product. Beyond that, I cant' speak to anything else. Obvs, your mileage has ...

Re: Cost of Windows 3 version

Hey! Participating in this forum has allowed me to maintain the dream that I have talent without having to actually complete a book . . . Only kidding. I’ve actually written 10.5 books as a direct result of my time on this forum. I too had dreams of some measure of talent. I gave up on that a long ...

Re: Cost of Windows 3 version

You all might want to think about putting the time and the words you're wasting in a L&L forum into more productive writing. You know, like the novel you're all so worried about that you must take the time for excessively wordy comment here. Or that short story you're all so intent on writing. O...

Re: Is Scrivener for PC worth it?

Keep in mind where your hard-earned money has come from and remember all the other expenses already paid for electricity, a computer, and the Internet to even get to the point to consider their software. That 50 bucks a year that Ulysses demands for the privilege of using it comes to mind immediate...

Re: Please, test “Check for Updates” in RC17

I run Scriv v3 on three Win 10-64bit laptops with Windows Security, MalwareBytes Pro, and Windscribe VPN. I've not had any problems with auto-updating v3 to date.

I've not set exceptions to the any of the above software, either.

Re: Windows Taskbar Application Name

On my Win 10 laptop, the taskbar will show the current project's full path name in a white box. You need to hold the mouse over it for a second or so longer for the white box to appear.

Scrivener is pinned to my taskbar. That's where the white box file name appears over the pinned startup link.
