Re: Am I the only one whose Linux Scrivener expired on Dec 1?

In the first iteration, I only extracted the libc binary. Scrivener started and loaded my last project, so I though it was okay. Later, it wouldn't start, though and reported "segmentation fault" so I tried and extracted all libraries from the .deb to make the dependencies work out. That s...

Re: Am I the only one whose Linux Scrivener expired on Dec 1?

Ok, so, here is what I did and what worked for me. Download the libc package from Ubuntu. E.g. http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise-updates/libc6 Open the file and extract all files into an empty directory "glibc" somewhere - e.g. on the desktop. Locate your scrivener installation directory....

Re: Am I the only one whose Linux Scrivener expired on Dec 1?

I installed that version, but when I try to open it, nothing at all happens. I wasn't supposed to uninstall the other version first, was I? No, you installed it the right way. The problem is probably that there are some libraries missing. Please try to start scrivener in a terminal window to see it...

A related bug, which is even a bit funny

How to reproduce: Using 1.7.2.3 beta (64 bit) - 21 Jul 2014 on Ubuntu, open a Scrivener project. Select any document in it - let's call it "document A". Edit the abstract in the top part of the inspector, adding just one character - e.g. "1". Now click the title in the header vi...

Re: Selectively treating a document as subsection or paragraph

Hi, Robert! Awesome! As-is actually does what I need. The text label in the German version doesn't really convey its meaning - I never even considered trying it. Thanks a million!

Re: Selectively treating a document as subsection or paragraph

Hi, Robert. Thanks for the super-fast reply. Yes, this is what I'd like to have. But! My paragraph documents (those that are not to get title formatted in the output) are sometimes on level 2 and sometimes on 3, but might as well be on level 4. The same is true for the "section" documents ...

Selectively treating a document as subsection or paragraph

I'm writing a thesis. In some parts I'm writing sciencey stuff and I have a great idea how to outline that. In other parts I'm gathering summaries of papers I read but I'm messing around with the argumentation. In those parts where I do know the argumentation I tend to keep each narrative in a docum...

Re: Compile->Replacements should support white space

Yeah, sorry for not making myself clear here. I'll try to paraphrase. I'm wanting to write LaTeX source code in Scrivener word processor-style, i.e. ending each "logical" paragraph with one single line break. When I compile such a Scrivener document into plain text, I get exactly this: eac...

Bug? No way to get the preset dropdown to the format bar

The format bar has lots of things, that are usually evil in a word processing scenario (i.e. font selection and stuff), but not the one thing that is a really good thing to have in word processing: preset formats. To use format presets I have to click though a 4-level submenu and if I don't manage t...

Re: Dead simple "Compile Draft"

I'd just like to second this idea. I, too, am using Scrivener to generate LaTeX code and being able to compile the project again with the last used settings using one click (or shortcut) would be really great. Being on Linux (and /so/ not planning on switching to Mac) the AppleScript solution won't ...

Compile->Replacements should support white space

I'm using Scrivener for writing a large LaTeX file. I'd like to use the editor to write my text in the usual word processor style, i.e. paragraphs have line feeds only at the end and not at the end of each line. The problem is, when I compile the text for LaTeX output, I only have one single line fe...
