Re: Weekly betas

Not fair! I want ice cream for my dog! (Sorry, I'm too frazzled with writing to code it.)

Although, I do have time to post, so I can't be that frazzled.

Re: Do I have to uninstall Beta 19 (Win64) before installing Beta 20?

I have two laptops using the Beta. On one, I installed B20 on top of B19. It works quite nicely. It's not recommended, though. It's a beta, after all. Once in a blue moon on this laptop when a new beta comes out, I'll uninstall the beta and download the newer version, but not all that often. I've do...

Re: Finding a lawyer at a decent price.

Maybe he just got out courtesy of his most recent misadventure. Or, perhaps, he acted as his own lawyer and went MIA for a number of years.

Re: Dissapointment in the Windows Team

Speaking of failed writers, judging by all the negative comments on the Windows beta, there appears to be plenty of writers blaming the tool. Methinks the failures should take a look in the plate glass on the outside of the coffee-shop patio. They might just catch a glimpse of themselves. In the mea...

Re: Latest BETAs = PURE GARBAGE

@twolane, you'd probably like to read into the full discussion of bugs. I do "read into" the full discussion of bugs. That's why I use the Beta. It works for me. If it doesn't work for someone who can't manage to find a sharp stub pencil and unwrinkled paper to write, it's not my problem....

Re: Latest BETAs = PURE GARBAGE

I've been using the Beta exclusively since v7 or v8. My output is on a par with the stable v1.9. What's your problem? Oh, and it's a BETA. Did you not get the memo?

Re: Ability to search for text or at least keywords across all projects

Thanks, brookter. As I suspected. With regard to "nesting", perhaps a bad choice of word. I meant only moving the completed multiple Novel (Novel 1, Novel 3, etc.) folders over to the Manuscript folder temporarily while doing the search. They would be moved back once I looked at the search...

Re: Ability to search for text or at least keywords across all projects

If several projects in a series were nested in the binder, would the search function go through each and every one and come up with the desired results? What I meant was this: 1) Half a dozen completed novels in the same Scrivener Binder listing as individual folders. 2) The Working Novel is under ...

Toolbar customization after deleting old/installing new beta

Is there a setting I'm missing? Every time I delete a beta and install a new one, my toolbar customization is lost. I've written out by hand a very nice and satisfying list of how I want the toolbars to appear, but why should I have to rearrange everything time after time after time following a new ...

Re: Ability to search for text or at least keywords across all projects

I have a follow-up question:

Re: question about buying scrivener in advanced before the new version comes out

* A version of Scrivener for Windows 3? Excellent! When will it be coming out? Is there a beta? When will the beta expire? Will a new beta be available before the old beta expires? I didn't realize the L&L team was so retro trendy. https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Windows_3.0 * Sorry, but sometimes I...

Re: Stuck with "pieces"

If I might take a moment to add... I recommend Brody's Save The Cat! Writes a Novel in the softcover print edition. I'm pretty certain you will be thumbing through it frantically, and it's much better to have a hard copy in order to do that. Bookmarks? Post-it notes work for me. Super Structure come...
