Re: Scrivener v3.0 beta 11 - Problems

1. Paragraph formatting in the final product is now missing... or hidden so well that several days of working on formats has not yielded a setting for it. This means paragraph spacing (a requirement for Kindle publishing) isn't editable for text. 2. KindleGen is no longer supported by Amazon, nor i...

Re: Can't open doc a partner is sharing with me

At a guess (no more than that) I would suspect the "Mom.scriv Recovered" in the middle of the folder name, specifically the " . ". Everything after that "." would, I think, be interpreted as a filename extension, which might cause Windows issues; and/or the presence of ...

Re: Feature request

Just want to say thanks to brookter and AussieDoc for this peek into features of Scriv 3 that I'm sure I will use heavily. I've been avoiding the beta (since I do other beta testing), and thus anticipating the learning curve when v. 3 is finally released. It's good to get a sense of how copyholders ...

Re: Using Scrivener to format books of Poetry

Hi, Conor. Take a look at Nota Bene . It's designed for scholars (as opposed to novelists, businesspeople, or poets). But it does very well at this kind of automatic renumbering of TOCs and resetting of page numbers (including different footers with different numbering schemes). Be prepared for a bi...

Re: Revision mode activated by Alt+015? [2.9.9.10]

Oh my heavens I forgot I already posted this. Y'all. Professors teaching online. We are out here literally losing our minds. Our minds. They are lost. Absolutely lost. Thanks. :oops: I'm a retired professor who did some online teaching toward the end of my career. It was ... OK, in that I survived ...

Re: Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

For those who wish that L&L would just push v. 3 out the door already, even if it's less than perfect ... do a Web search for "Evernote for iOS v. 10 upgrade".

Re: Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

Welcome to the forums, AnotherGuy. An interesting perspective. My understanding is that there are quite a number of features in the Mac version that are desired and needed in the Windows version, and that these are present in the beta of v. 3. But obviously a Windows program can't be identical to a ...

Re: A great program marred by critical flaws in core functionality.

Time passes... New software appears, new ideas burst forth with frothy fullness. New systems fly in the cloud and are integrating thought and idea and clunky keyboard as well, if not better, than Scrivener. I bailed on Scrivener because it's been bypassed. Bypassed as it stood on the cosmic subway ...

Re: Which version of Scrivener do I have?

Daniela, Do you know if the beta 3.0 version of Scrivener for Windows allows for a "facing pages" option, creating a gutter for print when compiling? Is the beta version available only to select users or can anyone access it? If so, how? Thank you! :D The most recent beta is always availa...

Re: Fall of Western Civilization, Was Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

I'm not sure how much I'll have to contribute here, but I do want to say a couple of things. First, thank you SilverDragon, for your willingness to be vulnerable about your own history. I know it has take a lot of work to get to a healthy place. WRT free expression of opinions, I think Devin makes a...

Re: Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

Katherine is right, of course. Jaysen, Teriodin, SilverDragon, Lunk, and others, if there's a general-off-topic-whatnot venue in these forums where this could be continued, I'd be interested in joining in.

Re: Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

I am going to propose a new subforum of the Scrivener for Windows forum: Venti, for just, you know, venting. No need for anyone to be annoyed by anything posted there. No need for anything posted there to make sense. Just folks venting. And then there could be two more sub-subforums: Venti Grande, f...

Re: Importing web links

Do we know when V3,0 is going to be released? Not that happy about paying for a product that doesn't work as expected; as demonstrated in videos. The videos make no reference or distinction between the IOS and MS platforms. After missing a couple of stated release dates, the company has wisely quit...
