Re: Which Linux distro do you use for Scrivener?

As I mentioned in another short thread, Debian wheezy 64 bit on an ASUS chromebook using Crouton for the OS install. A few minor dependencies fixed and it works like a champ.

Re: Quick Update on Chromebooks, Debian, crouton

Those new Samsungs look pretty sweet but, indeed, they are ARM. I'm guessing if one wanted to spend the time to hand compile and then package all of the right libraries using and ARM C compiler, it _should_ be possible to run Scrivener. However, I promised myself that I wouldn't let my Scrivener on ...

Re: Quick Update on Chromebooks, Debian, crouton

We're straying a bit (OK, a lot) from Scrivener here, but I'm one of those rare old Debian geezers who likes Ubuntu. I have a ton of respect for what Cannonical has done over the years, both on their own and for Debian. I still think Ubuntu is the only 'grandma certified' linux distro for the deskto...

Quick Update on Chromebooks, Debian, crouton

Hey there Crime Stoppers! Just a quick update on my quest to get Scrivener up and working on a cheap Chromebook. I spent a _lot_ of time trying to get things to work on the ARM Samsung chromey and in the end gave up. I'm a tech pro, and I'm pretty sure there might have been a way to manage it, but I...

ARM Chromebook

I have a new cheapo Chromebook where I have installed but Ubuntu and straight up Debian and was hoping to get linux Scrivener working. I've been going through the multi-arch documentation and no luck so far. Has anyone else managed to get this working?

Thanks,

Re: Removing text

@Robert - excellent explanation. Thanks much, good stuff. @MM - if I had a nickel for every time I could have improved a response post-caffeine, I'd have a lot of nickels. I think annotations will work, but if not, I can always export to another app, as you say. In future versions, though, a little ...

Removing text

Question, and apologies in advance if it's answered somewhere easy. I looked through this forum and the manual. I want to be able to strip out escaped text in the compile process. For various reasons I _do_ want the to be in plain text exports, which I use a lot, but when I compile a final version. ...

Re: IOS/Android

Thanks Keith, and sorry to hear about your ipad accident. The first ipad I owned met a similar, but perhaps more brutal version, of that fate. I wear my shoulder bag over my shoulder, with the strap going across my chest, like a grammar school nerd. One icy New England night I was walking home, slip...

Re: IOS/Android

Hello, Thanks for responding. It's my understanding that L+L is doing the Android/IOS development more or less in sync. My question really is how much more, or how much less. I know from projects I've worked on that if you start developing for both platforms at once it's not all that difficult to ke...

IOS/Android

I'm planning on picking up a 7" tablet shortly. I'm already an (fullsized) ipad user, but have a much longer track record with Android. When the portable/tablet version of Scrivener is finished, will it appear more or less in sync for both IOS and Android, or will one be first/best? I realize d...

Re: Windows feature request

Cool, thanks for the info. Waiting has never been my strong suit (I'm an American after all, I want it right now, 10% off for 50% more) but I'll manage. Just wanted to let y'all know that if you're wondering whether to work on X or sync, you have one user out here who voted for sync.

Windows feature request

After using Scrivener to write a little more than 130k words in the past eight months or so, the _only_ thing I am jealous about among the Mac users is syncing. As it is now, I have to export text files, prepend the date to the folder name, sync to google drive, and then move them to another machine...

Re: Windows + ipad

Excellent, thanks for the tips. I've been using Quickoffice, mostly because it has a pretty decent built in file browser for getting things off of google drive, which is my standard cloud backup service. However, editing in bright red is a very, very good idea. I most certainly hope that the IOS ver...

Windows + ipad

Question. Are there other Windows users who are or are trying to edit on an ipad? If so, how do you export/sync/import the text files? I've been trying to use Dropbox/Simplenote for editing when I don't want to haul a laptop around, but haven't found a quick and easy way to move the files about. Sug...
