Re: Portable Apps version of Scrivener

I (am not the author of scrivener) don't see any problems with portablizing the program provided that I am the only one to use this "derivative". That said, I'm fine with installing it where I need it, though I do prefer the sterile look a portablized program folder makes :)

Re: Make .scriv a file format that scrivener opens.

I hadn't thought about 40gig projects, yes, I see the impracticality and breakability of a single-file structure. What I tried to put forward, maybe inadequately is to have windows understand that .scriv-folders should be opened in scrivener. Sort of autorun-ish (winXP), A link in the "root&quo...

Re: Make .scriv a file format that scrivener opens.

Yes, sure.. they go by in an instant, those four clicks. Have you never heard the slogan "Don't make me click"? It's about convenience. Me having to make a new shortcut each time another project wrestles itself into existence is not convenient, neither is twitching with the mouse and click...

Re: Make .scriv a file format that scrivener opens.

This got me thinking, maybe there's a way to get windows to handle .scrivs as files and launch the project file inside the folder with scrivener. /me looks into registry hacks I thought one could use zips as a file-system, sort of but if you have to unzip all the files before re-zipping them then I ...

Re: Portable Apps version of Scrivener

Given your own post, you state that it requires minimal effort, why don't you make a portable version? I could make a portable version, but I am unsure as to how well it would function with regards to registration. Also I wouldn't be using portableapps I'd be using some other software :)

Make .scriv a file format that scrivener opens.

I would very much like scrivener to save project files to .scriv files which in effect are .zip archives with the project inside. That way we have PROJECT.scriv and that runs scrivener and loads the files. Older folder structure should be saved as a file the next time you save it. (though some ninja...
