Re: Scrivener for Windows

The guy who thinks Windows and Office reinstall themselves in their entirety every time there's an update Which is no-one, because that is a new claim. What they do is, they move the files they are about to overwrite into a backup folder (removing them from the application), and then install the ne...

Re: Scrivener for Windows

Sorry, I forgot that this is a forum where nobody knows shit but you guys. You spoke smack dab in the middle of my professional area of expertise. I have created more installers for Windows than I care to remember. Yes, sometimes, for simple programs, they simply overwrite what is already there, bu...

Re: Scrivener for Windows

What I am referring to, quite obviously, is the USER being forced to uninstall something and reinstall it. Which is not the case with Scrivener. And no, the generic things that average USER is updating are not going to be something that uninstalls the previous version completely and then installs t...

The AppImage works well with pretty much any x86 Linux.

Re: Decompiling and Recompiling for Linux?

The Linux version works fine, if you use the AppImage. But it is an old version of Scrivener by now. It does not interoperate with the iPad version (which is the only thing I find missing), and it does not work with the latest version 3 on Mac, or the version 3 beta for Windows. So, if it has all fu...

Re: Feature request: Open Scrivener 3 files in the current Windows Release

Anyway, none of this matters. You seem to be hung up on the method of delivery. I'm a customer and, frankly, I don't care about the method. I just want the result. The method: Use the beta. The result: full compatibility. Oh, wait, you DO care about the method, after all? I have no idea who you are...

Re: Questions about Scrivener

Is this just because of how the operating system handles fonts? Pretty much, yes. The font is different, the font drawing is different, and the subpixel rendering system is different. And even using the exact same font, there will be differences. I see the same using the Windows version in Linux; i...

Re: The Great Illusive v.3 for Windows

What makes Scrivener the best tool for me is the Binder, the Corkboard and the Inspector with the meta-data, allowing me to put both SMC information and "phase" information in each section without having to put it in the actual text. Is there anything which has that, among the things you ...

Re: What file name do I type in at the command line

1. Scrivener is probably in your "Office tools" menu, in the application start menu. If not, just type "scrivener" in a terminal and it ought to start. 2. If you mean the scrivener projects, you just copy the entire directory which the files are in, and then you get everything. Y...
