Re: Why do you use or want a Mac?

Mac has been always very much faster than windows. Windows get lagged as compared to Mac. As with an system it really depends on what you put in it. Exactly. And that original quote is pure BS to begin with. Almost every such "comparison" is done by looking at bargain-basement Windows bui...

Re: Support for Dual Monitors

You can achieve this with Scrivener 3... sort of. I haven't tried it in the Windows Beta so it may or may not work, but it definitely does for the Mac version. You can right click on a binder item, select "Open" then "Quick Reference" and a floating window will appear which you c...

At the risk of feeling sheepish, I must admit for some reason I thought the OP was asking about the Mac OS version.

Re: iCloud Saving on iOS (NOT sync)

From what I've gleaned iCloud tends to flub up live scrivener files, but there's good news, zipped files are safe. Since Scrivener's automatic backup zips file, you can set an iCloud folder as your back up location.

Re: Scrivener 3.0 for Windows Release

There is no way to buy an upgrade license at this time, but there's good news if you already own a license for 1.9.X you'll be able to upgrade to Scrivener 3.0 at a reduced price.

Re: Scrivener 3 Windows contra Scrivener 3 Mac

They're reasoning is pretty sound. It has already been fleshed out in this thread: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=59391&p=303440&hilit=epub2#p303440 I'm a bit confused as to why you'd want epub2 support, it's my understanding many sites have phased it out o...

Re: WIndows 3 Release: My Thoughts

(1) Scrivener 3.0 for Mac was first release over three years ago, July 2016 (that might be inaccurate - best date I could find). (2) Scrivener 3.0 for Windows has not been released as of November 2019. Make what you will out of them. Ummm... Where'd you get that date? The Official Release date was ...

Re: Beta Expires Soon

Waste of time commenting on the new posters asking about the beta expiry. It will always happen. Bit like the 2000 address group email when idiots go Reply All with some dumb comment. No matter how many times you say ‘Don’t Reply All’ 10 or 20 idiots do! At least they are only killing electrons, no...

Re: Beta Expires Soon

We're only a few days away from the current beta expiring. Any update on when the next beta will become available? Every single time the current beta is about to expire, someone posts asking when they'll release the next beta. Every time . Let that sink in for a moment. We're up to what beta 26 now...

Re: I guess Scrivner is way better on MAC

Do what works for you, but don't buy into the hype or the perception that Macs are the more 'premium' devices. I’m not going to go into the Mac/Win argument in depth however the ‘don’t buy into’ mantra from some Win supporters ignores the fact that IBM and other major corporations have found and pu...

Re: I guess Scrivner is way better on MAC

[...generic Mac vs Windows blather...] That's great and all, but the OP was specifically asking the *Scrivener for Mac* vs. *Scrivener for Windows* experience, not a rehash of one of the greatest religious wars of the late 20th/early 21st century. I'm curious, did you actually read my post? I told ...

Re: I guess Scrivner is way better on MAC

Save your money, the Windows 3.0 version of Scrivener will be out soon and you can purchase a windows pc with virtually identical specs to a mac for a lot less. I own both a Windows (well dual boot windows/linux)PC and a Mac and I've never been particularly impressed with Mac. I'll spare you the tir...

Re: Expirations on Beta versions

Yesterday I tried to use my Scrivener, 3.0 beta and guess what, it would not open. My version stopped working on Sep 30, and on Oct 1 it was dead. Now I was forced to go to the website, try to find the download button for beta, which would not tell me if it was version 3 or 1.9. Then I had to hunt ...
