Re: My dream: web services for Scrivener

Yeah, as one poster said, I don't necessarily need full real-time collaboration--just being able to "check in" and "check out" a project would be good enough and being able to store that project on Dropbox. Yes, we can store a project on Dropbox as it is, but there are risks (nay...

Re: Git - github, bitbucket and custom server support

+1 for collaborative features. Nothing else out there which has collaborative features approaches Scriveners awesomeness for everything else. I don't even care if the collaborative feature set includes Git functionality. I just want to be able to collaborate with someone else in a sane manner. Real-...

Re: Detailled statistics

Honestly, I love Scrivener, but I've requested more stats and graphs previously too and received the same answer. In my opinion, to say that just because you can't create the exact stats and graphs that *everyone* wants, you're not going to provide anything is weak. It's beyond weak. There's another...

Re: 1.5.0.6 LINUX Beta Released

Keep in mind that this new release still requires the user to follow the steps I detailed in the post "Got 1.1.0 working on Mint 13 Cinnamon (64bit)." Essentially the 32-bit libs still have to be installed and the force architecture command utilized.

Best of luck.

Re: Bug with Total Words in Outliner

Hi KB, Thank you for your response. I searched the logs in Console.App and couldn't find any kind exceptions raised or anything like that. I do keep the file stored in a folder which syncs to Dropbox, but I'm not sure when/how a conflict could occur since I only access the file from one machine. My ...

Bug with Total Words in Outliner

Hi there, I'm pretty sure there's a bug with the Total Word count in Outliner. I keep a sprawling outline (multiple folders, multiple text documents in each folder) in Scrivener. I also religiously track my total word count for the entire outline at the end of each day's writing. Several days ago my...

Feature wish: more writer productivity metrics tracking

Hi there, I love Scrivener so much I've actually used all three versions: Mac, Linux, and Windows. I'm back to using it on the Mac on my brand new fully loaded Macbook Air. It's great. The one thing I find I need as a writer (and believe in, in general) is metrics. My thought is that the more metric...

Re: Got 1.1.0 working on Mint 13 Cinnamon (64bit)

I'm thrilled to hear that my tips were able to help others get Scrivener working. I will agree that it isn't as "pretty" on Linux as it is on Windows. It seems somewhat better (*almost* Windows-ish) in the Linux distro I installed on my laptop. I read about Zorin OS 6 which is another Ubun...

Re: 1.2.1 BETA for Linux Imminent

Yeah, to be clear the 1.2.0 version has not yet been released for Linux. The last available version is still 1.1.0.

Got 1.1.0 working on Mint 13 Cinnamon (64bit)

The key for me was issuing the following directive from a terminal session: sudo apt-get install ia32-libs This grabbed and installed the 32-bit libraries necessary to run Scrivener on my 64-bit operating system. I believe I also installed libaspell and libaspell-dev using the same method. After doi...

Re: No luck - Kubuntu 12.04

Actually, I've been unable (repeated attempts) to get Scrivener to run on Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit. I'm relatively new to linux but no stranger to computers in general and I can't make heads or tails of it. Using the command line to install it doesn't work, and neither does downloading and installing the...

Re: 1.2.1 BETA for Linux Imminent

I've actually purchased the Windows license, but am trying to convert to Ubuntu Linux before the travesty known as Windows 8 descends on us all. Only problem is, I'm running 64-bit Ubuntu, and I can't get the available 1.1.0 beta package to install correctly. Sure, I've got an icon for Scrivener in ...
