Re: Apocalyptic fiction

I guess that makes me a writer. I'll feel more like a real writer when I'm putting out a book every year.


You write, therefore you are a writer.

Re: Affinity software: heads up

Thanks for the heads up on the Affinity pricing. I picked up all three, and have already produced several covers, both ebook and print, using Affinity The learning curve was a bit of a struggle in the beginning, but it's behind me now. Considering what I was using before, I'm extremely happy. I shal...

Re: Would so LOVE to see Scrivener 3 for Windows during the Coronavirus Shutdown

wondering if a 4th coffee for the day is going too far


A dash of crème helps. Preferably Irish. In all of them.

Re: In-app update download is very slow

Two laptops, same network. #1 auto-updated normally. #2 went into a slow download speed for some reason. I cancelled, and went to Help / Check for updates and the speed of the download was comparable to laptop #1. Don't know why it happened. Don't care. Cancel and Help / Check for updates solved the...

Re: Activation issue....once again

I occasionally have to re-enter the validation information as well. I call up the saved email with the serial number and copy-paste what's requested. Scrivener v1.9x runs just fine until the next verification check, when I do the same thing all over again and Scrivener v1.9x runs just fine until the...

Re: The rise of e-reading

The Big 5 (or the Pig 5, if one prefers) inflate their ebook prices in order to prop up the sale of their seemingly more profitable paper products. It's backfiring on them, however, and has done so for some time. That's their prerogative, of course. Now they're locked into their high ebook pricing s...

Of course you would expect it to be out by now. So would I. However, it isn't. Ho-hum.

Re: Writing a Novel, Do You Write in Order?

Linear writing produces linear books. If that's what you're after . . .


I'll take the cash any way I can write to get it, thank you very much, linear or any other way the buyer wants to send it to me. :D

development of Scivener 3 Windows looks to be in trouble Yeah, no. I've been using a beta of Win Scrivener 3 since forever. I'm now up to RC5, and I'm still using it successfully. problems in the product design/construction, or failure to manage project scope. Or maybe loss of key skills. Have you ...

Re: Prompted for license reactivation

A couple of days ago on one of my laptops I too got a notification to enter my email address and license information. I did so, and v1.9.16 opened and ran normally once it verified. This re-entry notice appears to come regularly now. I've never had a problem with Scrivener not taking the information...

Scrivener doesn't know the words, and I'm baffled as to what to do next.

Re: New Project. Should I take the Release Candidate Plunge?

I don't think you'll be disappointed, especially if you're starting a new project in the Beta. I wouldn't recommend dragging an existing v1.9x project over, or converting the v1.9x project, but that's just me. I've been using the Beta forever, and I really like it. I've got it set up the way I want ...

Re: Item that I cannot delete

There are three unremovable folders in a Scrivener project: Draft, Research. and Trash.


Yes, and thank you for making them unremovable! (I think there's a message in my statement, too.)
