Re: On Line Version??

An online/ChromeOS version is probably a pipedream. But as I believe I said, it doesn't matter much. After all, there are good writing apps in Chromebook, be it Google Docs or MS Word Online or even the website-based solution, Scriptito. All of them are useful for writing in ChromeOS/Chromebook, and...

Re: On Line Version??

This will be my standard response whenever a programmer tells me something is difficult from now on. "Just use the Standard Libraries," and "you programmers are used to that." Don't pretend like that. Microsoft, for example, helps game developers out by offering "standard c...

Re: On Line Version??

Actually, most PCs currently are x64-based, not x86. The change to 64-bit computing earmarked that market shift. Make that most *new* PCs. Maybe. But there's a whole lot of low-end and legacy hardware out there. Much of it in use as "second" computers or hand-me-downs that people use *jus...

Re: On Line Version??

the larger problem with any of the linux variants in the "poor man" class is the same as the windows tablet problem: there are too many cpu variants to be "practically supportable". This argument can be made toward Linux in general, but most "desktops" are running a 10...

Re: On Line Version??

I have to disagree. 5 million per year in a world or even US market is small fry. Opinion is divided as to the long term viability of chrome books with several mfrs already ditching the platform. Amcmo, I won't lay claim to any numbers expertise, per se, because ultimately there is only one number ...

Because some folks aren't that keen on Windows to begin with.

Personally, I prefer Android for phones and tablets.

Not trying to start an OS war. Just saying: things like that are probably why.

Re: Scrivener for Android?

Just wanted to pop in and say that not all of us hoping one day for a Scrivener for Android app are folks who come here to insult those who may someday start work on such a project, for not having already released it. (Looking at the ugly turn a certain "fan" took the discussion a few post...

Re: Feedback Wanted: How do you structure your Scriv projects?

I experimented around when I was familiarizing myself with Scrivener, but now? I tend up use Novel with Chapters as my core template (No parts). Then what I do is have a single folder into which I place several chapters/scenes. Try not to number them until I know where they really go, to avoid renum...

Re: Scrivener for the exploding Android-market?

Just wanted to note that I'm glad to see Android is on the map for future development. I love my Windows version, even if it hasn't quite caught up to the Mac version yet. (Sometimes an app can be too filled with features, if you know what I mean... I kept away from Scrivener for something more bare...

Scrivener for... Android?

I know it might be asking a lot, but is there ANY hope to see Scrivener eventually make it to Android tablets and larger smartphones? I realize that might seem anathema for a program that started out on the Mac... but so was a WIndows version, at one point. I mean, if there can be an iOS version of ...

Getting a Word document to look right in Scrivener

Hey all. I now own and am learning to use Scrivener for Windows. For new projects, I'm starting to get the hang of the thing. I like it. I'm learning. However, I've run into a problem and it's a significant one because it's a stumbling block and I don't want to move my half-completed novel over to S...
